Re: Flathead Friday. Bust out the Buma! And the BFH! Boring for liners..

Great job Mart, and thanks for letting us go along with you.

Re: Removed engine; some improvements?

Since the discussion continues, I should add, you can experiment with how tight the tubular inserts are clamped, but in my experience I could not get any difference in vibration if tightly clamped or...

Re: new B motor running issue

Is the proper gas cap (vented) being used. If it's the cap, it would start easily, but run for a very short period before dying.

I think there is an inverse relationship between Age and Standards. ;)

Wow, that was a mess. Now you have it, and you should have less vibration.

Re: Removed engine; some improvements?

The metal plate and the flat rubber are on the outside of the frame. The "L" shaped piece fits between the metal motor mount ant the inside of the frame rail. The 3 tubular spacers fit through the...

Re: "B" Distributor timing with an "A" front cover

Patrick, if my feeble brain has finally got this, this should be the case. With the "B" distributor and an "A" cover, if you fully retard the point plate position as indicated on the adjustment on...

Re: "B" Distributor timing with an "A" front cover

Purdy, my main concern with the "A" distributor is more due to my own personal shortcomings. Concerned with the perils of running the motor in a pinging or detonation condition due to my inability...

"B" Distributor timing with an "A" front cover

I understand the A distributor is timed at TDC, and any advance is set via the Left lever. I also read the "B" distributor gives an initial advance of 19* BTC. When using the B distributor with the...

Re: Engine Stand

Actually the two pan rail bolts are only intended to give support so the engine angle is solidly held in a vertical position. Those bolts are not threaded into the pan rail they are just pins through...

Re: Welch plug for carb

Have you considered using material from a roll of solder? The 50/50 or 60/40?

Re: High compression head choice.

The 6-1 Snyder head uses the same length studs. I used the grade 8 studs and the nuts sat right where they should be. Washers will be a problem, they are only for aluminum heads.

Re: Revising gear box

I went to Tom Endy's link, and right away saw the caution not to use the available late baffle in an early transmission. I'm a believer that when using sealed transmission bearings, the inboard seal...

Re: High compression head choice.

With my original stock head, I would have to plan my routes to avoid having to shift down on long or steep grades, thereby pissing off the modern cars as I crept along?

With the 6.0 head I just...

Re: High compression head choice.

Definitely go for the 6.0 to 1. Spectacular improvement in my light 29RPU. Also you will get the best price from Snyder, same head.

Re: Question for "B" Carb expert

Bob, thanks for the education. Is the small hole to the left of the slotted plug also part of the idle circuit?

Re: Revising gear box

Yes the colors are correct as you stated. As to the slinger, I need a better perspective as the slinger goes inside the transmission case. I dont understand why you have to remove anything unless you...

Re: Engine Stand

It's a very heavy built adapter. May seem like a lot, but if you build an engine or two, or just need to pull the pan on an engine out of the car, you will be happy to have it.
