Re: Building a 255 from a 221 block, help needed.

The front and center mains are the same on the 59AB and 8BA so a 59 AB set will work. Fine to use 8BA valve gear. With the crab distubutor, you will need a 59 style cam and change the crank gear to...

I've got a Winfield SU-1A cam in my engine with hollow adjustables and 55 lb seat pressure. Back in my younger days, I would spin the engine to 5000 rpm. No perceived problems, but I didn't spend...

Re: 52 Flathead crankshaft end play

I've never seen one drilled with 2 drillings from the factory. You can have a machine shop make a proper pilot bearing out of "oilite" material so it will clear the input shaft.

Re: Running cooler - does this make sense?

Going back to my engineering days, any fluid dynamics text book will say that heat rejection is a direct function of flow rate. More flow equals more heat rejection.
