Re: Continuation from stuck engine thread< Now what>

Replace all your studs and nuts and put it back together. The stud broke not the threads.

Re: Skips Pumps

Your electric fan may be blocking air flow and also do you have a good radiator shroud? Post some pictures of your setup and maybe we can help. Gary

Re: Crab Walking or is it Dog Walking

Just take a tape measure and measure front hub to rear hub and see if it matches first.

Re: Stainless buffing question

Can we assume you are wet sanding? You also need finer paper and lots of elbow grease.

Re: 37 ford doesnt run just right

All good info here, but I would also check for an intake leak to. Especialy if the carb adjusting has no effect.

Re: Dual 97s Too Rich!

The main jets will Not help your idle problem. Check floats for proper level and not sinking in the gas. Look down the car bore when it is idling and look to see were the gas is running out of.

Re: Possible Jump Start Damage Question

If you want to jump it with 12volts have someone engage the starter and just touch the terminal on the starter with the 12 volts. Works fine and will not hurt it with a momentary connection. Gary

Re: Flathead coupe issues

OK, I am late to this party. Did you time the engine with a light and verify that the timing mark is correct? You need to do that. Then put the timing light back on and just watch the flashes and see...

Re: Results of Compression test

Your readings are pretty low. Has this engine been run lately? If not I would get it runing and recheck the compression much later. It won't be perfect but may improve. Gary

Re: Engine stand advice

The stand looks fine, but one thing to thing about. If you are using a cherry picker can you get to the engine with it? The width may be an issue. Gary

Re: Flathead v8 rough idle

A real easy way to check the spark is put a timing light on any cylinder and watch the light pulses. If they are not even you have a problem and you know where to look! Gary
