Re: One of those annoying questions...

I'm in a small minority for just driving a 3sp. Every day it gets harder to care...

My buddy, thinking he might be on to something... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFnkCIwGwiA

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

If you are going to regulate it with spring pressure, why do you need a high pressure pump? Just asking.

Re: Friends

it is a sickness... I've bought this video 3 times and lent it out. Finally just stopped lending it. Happy to say I converted one.

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

Bearings limit flow. Better bearings better pressure. If you need to add more oil pressure I'd last to think the pump. But too much pressure is just that, same with flow. In my opinion on a flathead....

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

I think you are the next guy to tell me something. Like 3sp transmissions are stupid. If I cared about running like a modern car I would buy a camry.

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

You are right. Share your rebuild. I've shared a couple rebuilds here and on the yblock forum. Have at it.

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

Tub you first to get at me. In a perfect world you will be the first to put another motor in it. Sure you can tell me how to convert to 12 volt too.

Flatheads will always be a low pressure...

Re: Vapor lock or not ?

Ugh... I run 6 volt for a decade and still do. Yes I run 00 welding cable. 12volts won't fix everything. If it can't run on 6v it won't run on 12v.

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

It's a unicorn. Most flatheads are low pressure oil. It's not right to say a motor at 10lbs hot is a goner. I have a tight rebuilt that runs 50 at start and hot idle at 20. It's a good rebuild and no...

Re: 1934 Tudor needs a little hop-up

16" 6.00 is correct. A little bigger tire will add some.3:54 is a good gear set for the rear with a strong engine. If three sp is important and is fine. I'd next look at the motor. How is that doing?...

Not sure how you would get that through a hole to thread it. But where did you find it? More importantly.

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

A gauge is a gauge it reads whatever. If you have a worn engine and a bad oil pump, well no flow or pressure.... If you have pressure you have some flow. Bearings help to create pressure... if the...
