Re: Installing replacement pistons

You'll want the green and you'll want around 1 to 2 thou clearance.

Re: new bottom radiator hose leaking

I put all my hoses together with Hylomar AF. They don't stick when you try to take them apart.

Re: Oil return line plugged?

I agree. You have pressure on the inlet and a gravity drain. You will pressurize the canister.

Re: fuel pump removal?

I can't believe that it would make that much difference. What sort of gauge are you using?

Re: flathead oil pressure?

Most relief valves are set to 60 - 65 lb. 80 seems high.

Re: fuel pump removal?

What year engine? Did it have a bushing in the pump rod hole?

Re: fan shroud 39

Shrouds like that are pretty much useless. you need to cover the entire radiator. That is not what I bought from Speedway. I believe they are made by Walker.

Re: fan shroud 39

I bought a fiberglass shroud from Speedway that fit the radiator nicely. Had to cut the hole for the fan. Really helped the cooling in traffic at slow speeds.

Re: Flathead Friday: Cam, Lifters and Valve Lash. Progress!

Might be something unique to the mushroom valves. All the 8BA intake valves I have are dished and they are magnetic. I'll have to dig out some mushroom valves and check them.

Re: Flathead Friday: Cam, Lifters and Valve Lash. Progress!

As noted, a magnet will verify. It won't be attracted to exhaust valves. I have seen after market dished valves suitable for exhaust, but not stock Ford.

Re: Flathead Friday: Cam, Lifters and Valve Lash. Progress!

I started watching your video Mart and I notice you have the valves in wrong. The dished valves are intakes. The exhaust are flat and they are a harder material.

Re: ID help with this engine

The only way to know what the bore is would be to open it and measure the bore. I don't think it is worth the hassle to do. With the 59 cast on the back it will fail the pencil test. I say run it and...

Re: ID help with this engine

It is a 46 - 48 block. The A head is from the 39 - 40 era,but you can easily switch it to a 59 head. The pulleys are interchangeable so should be just fine for your car.

Re: Need encouragement head replacement

If you have never had a problem removing heads that have studs, you are indeed very lucky. Recently I tried to disassemble a 59 AB engine and I had to make a puller that mounted in the spark plug...

Re: Exact Engine Year

Both Ford and Merc cranks in those years were 3 3/4. Pictures would help.

The Mallory does have a vacuum brake like the early Fords which was a Mallory design.

Re: CMM Crank in earlier engines

The front snout will need to be trimmed as well as the counterweights to clear the main webs.

Re: What year and what is it worth?

That's what I thought also, but it turns they did have studs. I'm with the 3-5K guys. The midwest is far different than California (thank God).

Re: 8cm cam grind

I've never seen an EAC cam. I have cams marked EA and EAB. EAB had .307 lift and the EA had .330.

Re: 8cm cam grind

According to Tilden, Ford took spec'd their cams at .015 lift.
