Re: High hp flathead build posted 20 hrs ago

As to those little chrome air cleaners, I replaced mine with a homemade air cleaner and noticed a lean condition afterwards. Haven't fixed it yet. Will have to go up a few jet sizes.

Re: Changing Intakes and Carb

I agree with Sal as I'm running a 1.12 on a 302 with no problems. I was told that a 1.12 was only 600 CFM. Is that true Sal?

Re: 1961 FE exaust manifolds and casting numbers.

The head should be resurfaced. You might get away with using a large flat file to clean the head surface, but, the head must be flat and clean. Do NOT use a gasket between head and manifold.

Re: Holley 4150 carburetor development history

Does anybody have an opinion, good or bad, about the Ford 4100? I have used them and I'm impressed with the performance and reliability. I have one on a modified 302 in a Ranger and the performance...

Re: Fresh rebuilt 8BA Flathead

As B&S said, you got to have a proper crankcase vent system or you will have the problems he stated, plus, oil leaks. Picture on left shows engine in my F-1 as bought. Picture on right shows as it is...

Re: Petronix better ?

Coil will only produce as much voltage as required to jump spark plug gap. Doesn't matter what it says on the coil. Anything over 10K volts is probably OK for a flathead.

Re: My Friend BB wants pros and cons to upgrade to 12volt system

No difference in troubleshooting. Just different numbers on the meter.

Re: front sway bar on 53/56 f100

Re: Pearl Harbor

Marcus,
Same here. Not a word! Can't believe it! That's why I don't subscribe to papers or watch much TV. Oh well, at 79 don't have many more years to worry about it.

Re: 1951 f1 coolant leaking at top pipe

I know you got some hoses on order from NAPA but, here's a picture of the hoses I got at NAPA about 5 years ago for my '51 car.

Re: DOT3 or DOT5 Brake fluid

I have used DOT5 fluid in my '48 F-1 for about 10 years with no problems. I also use DOT3 in all the rest of my cars with no problems. So, who knows?

Re: gas

I use "corn gas" in my engines. Flatheads, overheads, old farm tractors and lawn mowers with no ill effects. Shut most of them off in November and start them in March. No additives used! "Corn gas"...
