Re: Electric fans

Looking at the rounded rise and curvature of that sheet metal panel, as well as the rubber-looking gasket/seal on top of it, and comparing that shape with the curved external body shape of the blue...

Re: Electric fans

If you depend on a fan to SUCK air through a radiator, a shroud effectively allows air to be sucked ONLY through the radiator. That's what shrouds are designed to do. Opening a 4th, empty hole in...

Re: 8ba questions

Zeke....I believe you've asked a valid question, but you should remember that the PCV valve-vented system has engine vacuum helping to propel the noxious gasses, through a roughly 3/8" nipple on...

Re: 8ba questions

That sounds like a reasonable assumption. These things must have a way to relieve blow-by pressures, or they find their own way at the most convenient, leak-prone gasket surface. I'm not sure why...

Re: 38 starting woes

If the headlights shine brightly, the battery should be capable of cranking the engine. Like Flamingo stated above, it could easily be that your starter button is not grounding properly, or that the...

Re: 8ba questions

B&S is correct on ALL counts above. The PCV valve must draw from the modified (capped-off), removable road draft tube stub at the front of the valve chamber, 8BA. That can clearly be seen on the...

Re: 1934 Tudor needs a little hop-up

Re: 8ba questions

The intake will fit, and it will work WHEN re-vented properly, usually with some sort of a PCV system. We're working on building such a mod as we speak. It can be done with poor to terrible results...

Re: Will 59 A-B flywheel fit an 8BA ?
