Re: 8BA compression issues

Good luck. I find one of the most gratifying parts of this hobby is the initial start-up of a new (or revived long-slumbering) engine.

Re: Data plate silk screening

The guy that bead blasted my '48 Seagrave Fire Engine damaged the cloisonne' Seagrave emblem on the Grille. I had it restored and theY did a good job but it was over $400.

It was just like this...

Re: Engine Made in the Stand

Now that I think about it, doesn't the Merc plate have a reinforcing bracket with three bolt holes in it that goes to the oil pan? Other than that, are they functionally the same?

I ask because I...

Re: 50 Car Steering Idler Arm?

I looked at the steering upgrade kit on the Shoebox Central sit e and was disappointed to see that there were no reviews. That being said, my '51 has been well maintained since new, and I have never...

Re: 8BA compression issues

I have a '51 Ford with a 255" Mercury and Edmunds heads, which should be as hard, if not harder, to spin over that your engine. An Optima spins it over just fine. Before resorting to a 12 volt jump,...

Re: Gas and ways to seal

Assuming you are referring to a 94 type carb, have you tried replacing the ferrule? They sometimes get damaged. Very rarely, the entire line needs to be replaced.

Re: Carb. question

I would be interested in what intake manifold you are running. Hopefully it's not a "Super".:D

Re: Painting Copper Brake Lines

I'm no metallurgist, but I believe the addition of the nickel to the alloy changes everything. One of the major advantages of NiCopp is it's resistance to corrosion. I don't believe it has much in...

That looks kinda like the hood seal on the core support on my '51 Ford.

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Thanks for filling the displacement in. May I indulge you some more and ask what a "small Isky cam" is? MAX-1? I ask you as it is quite similar to my last build.

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Ted - Thank you for the interesting information. If you ever run across it, could you post the displacement of the 150 HP engine? It would be interesting to know.

Re: need correct oil bath air cleaner

The carburetors with the V-shaped inverted flange were used on trucks. You are going to want a truck air cleaner, but that could lead to other fitment problems and would be incorrect anyway. IIRC,...

Re: Isky Max 1 valve lash

Maybe they mean that the engine should have been brought up to operating temperature and then the valves adjusted, instead of with the engine dead cold. I know that is what is specified for a SBC...
