I took measurements on the first two cylinders with a dial bore gauge and mic set to 3.955". Hope the way I laid it out is clear.

Cylinder 1: top
3/9 oclock: 3.9551"
12/6oclock: 3.9562"...

Re: Honing Cylinders

I'm going to try those acids to see if it gets rid of the aluminum. I'm ordering pistons today and will hopefully get them by Friday so I can do this all over the weekend.

Going to borrow a set of...

Re: Honing Cylinders

So I was able to borrow a mic from work again today and measured the pistons on the correct thrust surface. I got 3.9515" to 3.952".

Seeing as my measurements for the cylinders were 3.954" to...

Re: Honing Cylinders

I took the measuremnets at the top of the piston right above the top ring. I'm assuming this is not the thrust surface. Where is the thrust surface? I tried googling it, but it was still unclear. I...

Re: Is it a bad time to sell?

I'm a younger guy, (23) and got a phaeton. I looked for over a year looking for roadsters and phaetons. Cars priced over 14k that were open seemed to take a lot longer to sell, whereas cars in the...

Re: Blow by/smoking issue

I did plug the two steam holes, I am using a Best B gasket.

The tops of the pistons were a lot cleaner before I ran it... But now they have black/brown carbon on them.

I'm wondering if my head...

Re: Blow by/smoking issue

Pulled the head and the #7 stud between cylinder #1 and #2 was slightly wet, as well as the number 1 cylinder had (water?) in it. Maybe this explains the blow by from the oil tube?

I noticed this...

Re: Blow by/smoking issue

The plugs looked pretty normal. The #1 cylinder's spark plug had a little more carbon on it than the other three but not an excessive amount. The smoke smelled kind of like tar or dirty oil (I can't...

Re: 1930 Roadster: An Amazing Deal, or a Scam?

I'd try calling. Scammers usually never put their phone number or include more than one picture.

Probably just a bad salesman.

Re: OHV conversion durability/longevity

Thanks for all the information. It seems as though the miller OHV would be the one to look into if I decide on an OHV.

Is it a pretty simple bolt on procedure, or is there a lot of tuning...

Re: Tapped Steam Hole Plug Size Model B block

I was thinking of buying a Lion 4 plug head head. I heard good things about them and the fact that they place the spark plugs directly over the pistons.

Any other recommendations?
