Re: V8oil pump

Speeway does sell the right pickup for the 49-53 pump to use it in a 38-48 oil pan (at least most of them). I used to have to cut and weld them up - much easier to just buy the dang thing. I don't...

Re: Charlie N.Y. Band for life from Ford Barn

Tubman summed it up better than I would have . . . and I agree with his perspectives. Hopefully it is a short time in Purgatory and then he will be back with us.

Re: Charlie N.Y. Band for life from Ford Barn

I have no clue as to why he was banned, but there must have been a reason that Ryan felt strong about (and I respect Ryan).

With that said, I know there are days when I post or comment in ways...

Re: Pa inspection

In Ohio, I actually had the original 32 plates registered with the car.

Re: Pa inspection

You might also check and see if PA has the concept of 'Historical Plates' - which we have here in Ohio. Basically, you pay a single license fee for a plate that lasts many years (can't remember how...

Re: 40 Ford Drake radiator saga

Re: 8BA cam position

I'd be extremely surprised if the perceived cam position is an issue - have never seen any issues in this area, with motors in ALL sorts of conditions.

Re: 1/2 - 20 repair fitting

I'd make a "guide bushing" that threads into the carb with a flange on it (to control how far it goes in). The seat refinishing tool runs within it.

The tool and the bushing would be installed...

Re: 8BA cam position

Also, if the sound was sort of a LOW sounding knock - which changes tempo with engine RPM, I've never heard that out of the valve-train - that is usually the lower end.

Re: Edmunds Custom 2 x2 intake manifold

It all comes down to the amount of knowledge/skills you have in working with carbs, the "look" you want, the money you have to spend, etc.. Personally, I like the new Stromberg 97's from Clive --...

Re: 8BA cam position

Did you actually pull the rod caps and check all the rod bearings? The caps can be torqued, but the clearances wrong and/or a bearing going bad.

Re: 8BA cam position

I don't necessarily believe it has slid back. About the ONLY way that can happen is for the front flange of the cam to wear excessively and/or the front of the block to be worn off (the thrust face...

Re: wheel studs

Also, there are mag wheel nuts that include BOTH a tapered seat (like at 60 degrees) as well as a long shank that goes down into the flange. It is important to have the right ones for the given...

Re: wheel studs

If the allow wheel was originally designed for a lug-nut with a shoulder/sleeve that went down into to the wheel, then that is what I'd be running.

The other term for this type of brakeline is "NiCop".

Re: Electronic ignition ?

If you're running a Vertex, you put in what are known as "Rare Earth" magnets - they don't lose their charge. :D

Re: wheel studs

With a good magneto, you can always get home - even if your battery has died. :D

Re: Engine temp rises when I get to cruise speed

Re: Engine temp rises when I get to cruise speed

With a blower, you'll not see boost unless you throw a lot of AIR at the rotors - which means the throttle plates are probably fully open. With smaller carbs, it is difficult to get enough air into...

Re: Engine temp rises when I get to cruise speed

Head studs will commonly leak if they were NOT sealed correctly when installed (has nothing to do with the blower).

I use a liquid stud-sealer from ARP. Even with that, sometimes I'll see a few...

Re: Boiling Bros.

You need to not only have them relined, but you also have to take the drums to the brake shop and have them arc the linings to each specific drum diameter.
