Re: Running out old babbit

I would do it myself. Not to just to save money, which you do. No body needs to see it. A 1000 engines will have a different ware pattern, and what ever you find is useless information.

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

I Agree, Daren, But Henry, had what ever he chose for a gasket thickness, a new block, flywheel housing, and a new Bell housing, and that might have came out with using the .010 shims, at that point,...

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

Daren, this is my opinion.

9, 12, and 3 getting squared is good, but the bottom has a tendency to be off the worst. 0 to maybe 16? When the bell housing tightens up, yes it will pull together, at...

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

Steel shims are quite alright, I just don't have any in the shop, as we don't use them for any thing. But I have a lot of brass that we use every day.

In the Car? I won't say anything about why it...

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

When grinding the rear crank flange, you should have just gotten done grinding, all 3 mains. Then is the time to grind the cranks, rear flange. There will be no better time, that the crank journals,...

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

Yes, But!

9 & 3 can be 2 different thickness of shim packs.

12 & 6 will be equal, when adding, or subtracting, from the stack.

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

.003, .002, and .001 thousandths thickness. You can use old main shims, cut down, fronts, and centers, as they are .002, and .003's. McMaster-Carr carries .001, and .002 in 12" sheets.

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

Think about it as two separate operations, as they are.

1. is setting each side, to read the same, or not over .003, difference. Doing this you will have, uneven stacks of shims, most likely.

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

I have had a lot of housings that were off .030 thousandths, and adjusting, and a little time to come back to shape, I have never had one, I couldn't align.

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

There is nothing you can do to change the alignment with the bell housing that bolts to the transmission, and flywheel housing, as it not adjustable. So, the flywheel housing, that, is what has to be...

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

The gasket cement go's on the top, and bottom of the gasket, I just stopped in the middle of the job, to take a picture.

Ok, you have 4 bolts in the middle of the housing, NEVER us shims there....

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

DO NOT shim under the 4 housing bolts, as this will warp a usable housing in the wrong places.

The first thing is you have to have a level crank flange, and also a crank that is centered, in the...

Re: Engine Bearing Shims

What ever they had when new, will not work the way they did. The reason being being is the amount of filing that has been done, on the part lines, that will leave you short, in the amount of shims,...

Hydro-Borer, Connecting Rod Lathe

Long Story, but this is a rebuilt Boring machine in 1945, and never used again, as they bought another new one to do rods, as they were getting behind.

I took it all apart to paint it, and it is...

Re: Bearing fit ... engine oil gravity feed

If your running a true .001 or less, on set up, the bearing has no choice but to Smear the first .010 of babbitt, or less, and that is a waste. Normal Rod clearance of a broke in engine is .002, to...

Re: Rear main thrust

Before you do that, try filling about 5 minutes, which would be on the rear thrust, see how that works for you.
