So, what will be my power valve and jets sizes for a Holley 94?

Re: Who has the best Tillotson rebuild kit?

So, there seems to be a third option (without changing a bunch)...Marvel/Schebler!!!

Does anyone currently have one running? Do you like it? Would you do it again?

Re: Who has the best Tillotson rebuild kit?

I have a stash of Holley 94's, but I've had several comment that I would be over-carbing with nothing more than a head swap. More carb calls for more cam and more intake flow (valves), and I don't...

Re: Who has the best Tillotson rebuild kit?

Thanks. I'm not after judging marks, I'm just looking for a good-running carb. I'm building a war-era hot rod. My Tudor WILL have a "B" police head and maybe (or maybe not) a Mallory distributor. ...

Will a BB Bell work with a T5?

Wondering if a BB bellhousing would work adapting a T5 to a B block the same way an AA bellhousing works with an A block? I know you would have to use the B oil pan as well...


Or would it be...

Re: How much better is a B block than an A?

Thanks @hardtimes I know "luck" has very little to do with it!

I'm wanting a simple early pre-war hopped up Sedan that I'm not afraid to drive around town and maybe on some backroads. No speed...

Re: How much better is a B block than an A?

How much better is a B block than an A?

OK, a little more info requested...


I went back to snap a shot of the engine number stamping yesterday, but the pad on the side of the block was blank. I have since learned that, on B engines,...

Re: How much better is a B block than an A?

John,

Re: How much better is a B block than an A?

If I try to go with the B block, will I have to use the B bellhousing/transmission/oil pan? Or can I use my A parts?


(Showing my ignorance...sorry)

Re: How much better is a B block than an A?

Thinking about this, would it not be perfectly fine to run poured babits? The whole idea of running a counterbalanced crank is to 1) reduce vibration, which will 2) lessen the dynamic load on the...
