Re: Dealing with pitted body panels?

How many use Ospho for the deep pits first and is it recommended even with blasting?

Re: Light switch

I am talking about the 3 contact ring in the upper housing, I must have something broke or missing as I believe this is supposed to remain in the upper housing.

Re: Smoke/oil blowing out oil fill tube

Check that the oil is not over filled, not all dip sticks are the same. It is safe to run at a known 3 1/2 qts. for this check.

Light switch

Is there a spring between the rotating contacts and the spider? I found a cupped washer between the two that looks like a spring may sit there and see no other purpose for the cupped washer.

Re: Ven Plate

If you have the body off and the Vin number exposed on the frame and it is the same as the engine number get a letter from a Vin inspector stating this.
The letter can be amended for future VIN...

Re: Need Mallory rotor

Try Merc.4 cylinder inboard/outboard parts - same cap only more water proof.

Re: Locating dimple on timing gear

This is not incorrect. The backup distributor if set up properly can run forever as though it were new. Human hands are the only thing that can change a mechanical junction (which timing is) whether...

Re: Engine Splash Pan Installation Documentation?

A couple washers are needed between the oil pan flange and two tabs with the slots on the splash pan to take up the "slack" under the two bolt heads on each side. Don't want the pan bolts to flatten...

Re: Locating dimple on timing gear

When you do find it borrow some of the wives nail polish and dab some in the dimple. Makes it a lot easier to find with a mirror and flashlight next time.

Re: Gas Aspiration Problem?

BTW the oil slinger covers the marked crank tooth, it is either (forgot which) 1 tooth left or right of the crank key way.

Re: Gas Aspiration Problem?

Timed properly with the timing pin seating it can not be 180 out. The shafts from the cam gear are all connected off center. Remember cam to crank gear ratio is 2 to 1 - so no way to be off 180, ...

Re: Timing puzzle

Also praying for your daughter. I haven't seen any "official" timing procedure with a light so I would suspect that procedure. With uninsulated spark plug wire there is no telling where the spark...

Re: Bolts rear motor mount to clutch housing

I don't understand why if someone put them in, why can't they be taken out without destroying something?

Re: block cleaning

The main problem with electrolysis is that it is "line of sight" between the 2 poles, so no going around corners.

Re: Front brake repair on 31

I haven't found a reamer that will go through both bushings so I take mine to a machine shop to have honed and get a much better fit.

Re: Mallory distributor parts availability

Mallory has been bought out a couple times and it seems whoever owns it now is not interested in the 4 cylinder market, try Mercruiser. I've gotten a couple dist. parts from them.

Re: checking timing

I don't see why the rotor pin has to be on the same plan as the distributer pin as long as the closest points (gap) are .020.

Re: Proper way to re-torque?

Unless I really misunderstand the timing details it is no big deal to pull the distributer. Just pull it out and slap it back in regardless if you turn the engine or distributer - you can't miss...
