Re: Liner/bore question.

Right. I'll amend my post. I better do a better job of proofreading. Two screw ups in one post.

Re: Installing replacement pistons

A rigid hone will also remove some material and may effect piston fit.

Re: Liner/bore question.

I found a Melling sleeve, CSL 1128, which has a 3.3070 bore and is 3/32 thick. When bored to 3 5/16 there will be around .090 wall left.

Re: 8BA doesnt have power

Definetly a problem with the accelerator pump. Do you have it set for maximum stroke?

Re: 8BA doesnt have power

Correct. The 8BA carbs do not have the spark valve in the base.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Something is screwed up here. There should be a sleeve on the crank that the seal rubs against and this does not extend beyond the front cover. There should be no slot visible either.The key that...

The diameter of the pulley makes no difference.

Re: Distributor vacuum brake question

The only time I've seen that on my machine is when the distributor is worn. At idle, the vacuum is high so the piston is away from the ring.

Re: Distributor vacuum brake question

I understand the operation, it is just that I cannot see how the plunger is said to stabilize timing.

Re: Distributor vacuum brake question

Manifold vacuum pulls the plunger away from the plate. So during normal everyday driving the plunger does not contact the plate, so I don't see how it can stabilize the timing. If you've got wobble,...

Re: Barrett Jackson

There were two 36 3 windows that sold for around 70K. They had updated drivetrains. Unfortunately our style of car is not selling that well.

I would say that the carburetor needs another rebuild.

Re: Valve to head clearance

If the heads have not been previously milled, you can get quite a lot of lift to fit. Probably more than you'd ever want. But checking actual clearance is a must.

Re: Vacuum port

You can disconnect and use the port for the vacuum gauge. Are you wanting to check idle vacuum?

Re: Help decoding my 239

There is no cut and dry method. If there is no 59 cast in the bellhousing, it is pre 1946. How many head studs?
