Re: NOS 1938-48 24 Stud Head Gaskets

I think I've said the same thing to myself . . . many times in my life. LOL :D

Re: Wheel cylinder cleanup

There is no problem using the standard brake cylinder hone - as if you don't tighten it down, it will just lightly hone the bores. Even if you crank it down, it takes a whole heck of a lot of...

Re: Busted Crab but what happened?

:DI haven't made that mistake, but I'll share a fun one. When I built my first "hotrod" flathead, I was 15 years old - 4 1/8" stroke 3 5/16 bore, 284 cubes, Weber F6 cam, Navarro heads, Edelbrock...

Re: 1/4 inch hole in shifting tower sloppy

I see no reason to soften the pin - just use a cut-off wheel to carve a piece off the end of it . ;)

Re: PennGrade Motor Oil

I've used PennGrade oil - the original "Green" oil. It is a great oil and a lot of performance/racers use it. In the end, the overall cost of oil is so small as compared to what you just paid, is...

Re: Off shore adjustable lifters

Not sure what you mean by the "valve hit hard on the valve pocket"? Are you talking about the flattened wear on the nose of the cam lobe in the picture?

If so, this is just wear from the...

Re: Windage Tray

That is true for almost any competition engine - as the scraper side of the deal is completely dependent upon the rotating assembly (specific parts). It is surely possible to purchase an out of the...

Re: Windage Tray

Having a windage tray a custom fitted scraper and an oil pan that is designed to keep oil on the pickup is never a bad idea. I recently built a stout 383 SBC for my 32 three window - am running a...

Re: Windage Tray

What a flathead (or really any engine) can benefit from is a complete dry-sump oiling system - but that gets into a few more bucks. We converted our Flathead Cadillac over to a dry-sump system for...

Re: Uncle Max Carb Quality

Really nice work! Looks like you swapped out the linkage to the standard Stromberg 97 style stuff - were the whole bases changed over?

Re: sealed bearing fan hub

Re: It ain't pretty but no light comes through

You can get a high-temp header paint - from places like Jegs or Summit. I don't use paint anymore as the headers always end up rusting through it. I use ceramic coatings (baked on) - not...

Re: Wheel stands

One step at a time . . . with smaller blocks being used until you get it high enough - and having to block up the dang jack long the way.

As floor jacks are made to roll - be very careful with...

Would be best to provide us with more information into what it is you're trying to accomplish, what car, what chassis, what radiator, what water pumps, what belt size/system, fan location, etc..

I've never seen a set of gears like that, but what the heck - they look like they should work! Have fun with your "new" car . . . looks like a blast to drive.

Re: Stromberg 97 Issue

Do you have a filter on the incoming line (like one in the glass fuel bowl - if you have a glass fuel bowl) - or one on the out-bound side of the pump? You probably have either debris in the jet...

You have plenty of clearance and the only part of the valve pocket to worry about anyway it up at the top of the "eyebrow" . . .

Re: Camshaft Movement

Just because you have an external oil filter, does not mean that it is 100% filtering the oil. Even if it is a modern-full-flow type system, it is doubtful that the oil pump was specifically...

Re: Camshaft Movement

Another thing to consider is if they are using an early cam (with an adapter for the distributor drive bolted onto it - which is what I see), then they probably do NOT have the oiling provision that...
