Re: Not Model A need identification

That is a very unique cowl which should help with the identification. I would post over
on the Horseless Carriage Club site and see if anyone over there can help.

Re: best head puller

I ran mine the last time I did it with all the head bolts backed off and it broke it loose,
Then I worked it the rest of the way off.

Re: Best head gasket

And just when you think you've torqued it enough times, torque it again.
I really like the Best Graphfite gaskets.

Re: Rebore vs Sleeves

Your next oversized will be .080, measure carefully and see if it will clean up there.
You can have it honed being only .010 away.
Your next size is .125 it will have to be bored for that one.

Re: Hole in water jacket

Wrap a bunch of Teflon tape for plumbing fittings. Use enough that it’s a little bit of a tight fit as the tape is meant for tapered threads. It will seal it and be able to come out easy later.

Re: 1911 project

Either treat your self to a high compression head or take .125 off of your existing head.

Hey Art,
Great project. 1911 is one of my favorite years. Old enough to have that great early T look and new enough that most of the weak links have been worked out. One of the weak links is the...
