Re: New member, new project

Be careful with the fuel pump, it is possible for them to leak internally and pump fuel into the crankcase. I would check and be sure there is no fuel being mixed with the oil.

Re: fuel pump removal?

Be interesting to see how much the oil pressure changes.

Re: fuel pump removal?

If it were mine I would stop trying it with the oil that is in it and get it changed ASAP. Cheap thing to do and much better for the engine. And if it is in a cold area might want even a lower...

Re: fuel pump removal?

Why does it have "heavy" oil in it? Sounds like you my be restricting the flow with a high viscosity oil. The flow is what is important!

Re: fuel pump removal?

It depends how long you have the 80 psi and with what viscosity of oil. If it is maintaining that high a pressure after it warms up I would take steps to get it lower. One approach would be a lower...

Re: Flathead smoking on start up

That is probably the best approach, run it and see if it improves.

Re: Serpentine System for Flatheads

Didn't find any good photos, but this is the Tom Roberts setup. I'm not a billet fan myself.

Re: How Ford Gauge Unit Work

A guess would be some type of wiring issue. You could start by checking the gauge with a "D" cell just to eliminate that. Grounding at the sending unit can be a problem, a jumper wire from the...

Re: fuel pump removal?

Later bushing. If the bushing was missing you would give you a large oil pressure drop. If the bushing is in place and the fuel pump rod removed you should get an oil leak seemlier to the oil...

Re: Centre exhaust port baffle or fourth port?

The price I saw was out of reach for most and it wouldn't be allowed in any type of competition, so went nowhere. Also, if I remember correctly, it didn't use any original type parts, everything (or...

Re: Flathead smoking on start up

That could be a problem, the rings my not be seated and they may never seat. Would take some further driving to determine, but may need the cylinders re-honed and the pistons re-ringed. Putting...

This is a Ford switch, but the Mercury should be similar.

Re: Oil return line plugged?

Well, it is not exactly gravity drain. The canister is pressurized because of the inflow of oil through the restrictor. But, the flow is being restricted. The grain holes see the same pressure in the...

Re: fuel pump removal?

I have never measured it, but the claim has been that it allows a pressure drop. It would sure be a big drop with the bushing out! I even plug the 59a blocks just for the heck of it.

Re: Oil return line plugged?

The oil should enter the filter through a .060 restrictor and exit the filter through two .060 holes. There should not be any pressure build up inside the filter housing (not enough to cause a leak...

Re: flathead oil pressure?

80 psi is a lot it it stays there for any length of time. Some what akin to blasting the bearing surfaces.
