Re: Cracked head- pic

IMO, you'd be nuts to buy the 5.5 when the 6 is the same price. I agree with the few above, that your head is usable. But, with the opportunity the head being off, I'd go for the 6:1 head. Yours is a...

Re: Eastwood spray gun

If that is all your painting, I would use a siphon gun, and stay away from HVLP. A novice painter, in my opinion, can get better results with siphon gun.

Re: Gas damage on rubber

You might try some mild heat, like a heat lamp just close enough to maintain a temp in the 90's or so. Usually when I have seen rubber absorb some chemical, it tends to shrink back as it dries out.

Re: Water Pump Removal

It does seem drastic, but I tend to agree, i'd rather not disturb everything. I question though, can you get the new one on without taking the hood off and leaning the radiator forward?

Re: First (second really) 5 main aluminum block.

Tod, what are you considering "large numbers" ? Perhaps we who are waiting could pool our requests.

Re: It's Friday. We're locked down. Lets watch Mart's video!

Mart, you didn't show it, but I assume you put the rope seal in the front cover?

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

SO, whether doing the 9 & 3, or the 12 & 6, the same two top shim packs are used.?

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

Herm, I'm a bit confused as to your shimming process. Not clear to me where you use shims, other than the two top bolts that take the .010" slotted shims. Could you expound as to your shimming? The...

Re: Rust on Block Deck?

I used a copper gasket when installing my 6.1 head. I hate scraping off those composit gaskets. As i said above, I'm pretty liberal with the copper spray on copper gaskets and get no coolant seepage.

Re: Rust on Block Deck?

It appears some dampness was entering the cylinders. At this point, impossible to pin it down. It looks like not enough heat cycles, and miles driven occurred to present a problem. It could be short...

Re: New clutch: Judder from hell

The early 32, 33 and I think 34 , V8 pressure plates were the same as the model A.

I had the same problem, but the more I drove it, the better it got. The slipping of the clutch, and 2nd gear...

Re: 59 engine weird crack.

May be overkill, but that looks to be a real easy stitching job. You can get at both sides of the stitching. Wish you were closer, I'd do it for you free. Check the back side real well and confirm it...

Re: Ricks pack

I recall Mark's as a decent supplier for the time. I liked Antique Auto Hardware as well. Was disappointed when they closed shop.

Re: It's Friday. Crusty Flatty Pt17. Some assembly at last!

Mart, like the way you did the valves, including your wheel technique. I also did a set recently where I used the stem grinding technique for the first time. I approached it differently, not better...

Re: It's Friday. Crusty Flatty Pt17. Some assembly at last!

Mart, something I do not recall seeing in your videos, valve adjustment. Couldn't see your followers, so I don't know if they are adjustable. Are they, and have I missed your valve adjustments.

I...

It's good news when they find the cause of a problem. I spent 20 years working in a Cath Lab.
They have excellent tools these days. The "drill" you mentioned is a "Rotoblator". It gets the Hard...

Re: Rear Motor Mount Rubber Issue

They are supposed to be compressed to give just the right amount of tension. Brattons pads are the first correct pads made to print specs.
