Re: An interesting idea regarding cylinder heads.

Brent hits the nail on the head regarding dealer concerns. There are other ideas I thought of that he did not mention. My main idea is to move maximum amount of product. I have to believe, based...

Re: An interesting idea regarding cylinder heads.

It would have to be an order of the same head, as the foundry would be running orders off of the tooling for each head. Price breaks apply to individual orders.


Good question.

An interesting idea regarding cylinder heads.

Recently, someone advanced an idea to me for moving heads in more quantity and with reduced pricing due to bulk sales. I am just starting to investigate and have posted the idea on Facebook,...

Re: Latest aluminum block.

Sleeves are inserted after machining. Sleeves are slightly larger in diameter than the bored cylinder in the aluminum. The block is heated up which allows the sleeve to slide in and then when the...

Re: Latest aluminum block.

I am making blocks for mostly 5 main application, aluminum and iron. I have a few aluminum orders to fill and several 3 main iron blocks to do for waiting customers. Yesterday, I dropped off 2...

Re: Latest aluminum block.

I'm not sure why my foundries and my cores shops are so busy. Maybe all foundries are not as busy. My one core shop has 2 shifts working 6 days a week. I actually get tooling to quote from other...

Re: Latest aluminum block.

I am totally at the mercy of all my suppliers who are extremely busy this year. I don't make any promises and I take no deposits due to the work load of all of us. My aluminum foundry poured this...

Latest aluminum block.

There may be no interest in this here but, just in case, here is a picture of the latest 5 main aluminum block casting with the sand off the outside only. The casting looked flawless from what I...

Re: Model T speed stuff.

Apparently, I was misinformed about the cylinder head that was called to my attention. The cylinder head is actually a MILLER Model T head. I have seen pictures of the top, but not the combustion...

Re: Model T speed stuff.

Thanks, but I have seen that one and from what I hear there is another that more resembles a stock head on the top and has a kind of crow foot chamber.



This head is pretty cool, for sure,...

Model T speed stuff.

I was talking with someone who mentioned a few Model T speed parts and a couple that came up were a Model T Winfield head, and a Rajo OHV head. There was also a magneto drive front cover, and some...

Re: V8- Times

I went on the cite earlier and posted in the forum.



My core shop said they will make cores as I finish things so it gets done incrementally and is proved out as it moves along.

Re: V8- Times

I did not even know this publication existed. I will see if I can get it.


Would it be a good place to advertise my block when it is ready?

Re: 8BA back under way.

Messed with the driver's side deck some, the ports and the water jacket on that side. Had one of my core shops in to go over molding and core assembly with me to make sure they approve of my process...

Re: 8BA back under way.

Thanks. I will be meeting with my core shop to go over how I want the sand to assemble and make sure they are in the loop from the start.


My foundry is capable of doing what I need them to do. ...

Re: 8BA back under way.

Yes to improvements. But some are saying (not here) that there are plenty of blocks still available and that this would be a waste of time. Apparently, some don't want, or need improved blocks.

I finally have some time to get back on finishing the tooling design for my 8BA block. Things have been absurdly hectic the past 2 years and it looks like I may be getting a handle on it all. A...

Re: Snyder 5.5 head

These heads (stock top crow's foot) are not available yet (testing not completed) and they are a little over 7:1 compression, which I doubt will be wanted by most Model A owners. I expect a small...

Re: Snyder 5.5 head

New patterns for the top of the head would need to be made out of aluminum, again, and the bottom would also need re cut. The expense would be high, and there is nothing to be gained, in my opinion,...

Re: Snyder 5.5 head

Since the 5.5:1 pattern was not made by me, and I used its length to make the 6:1, assuming that 20,000 + sales made it safe to do so, and that Don Snyder would have to make that decision, I can...
