Re: How is it.........

What makes you think they didn’t have failures?
Wore out rings and cylinders, poor quality oil and bearing wear.
I’m sure someone will have some facts regarding longevity.

Re: Renumbering question

Don’t double stamp!! It will cause problems down the road. As mentioned, restamping the engine is the correct way. My engine has a WN ———-/ number from the state, as the frame number isn’t legible.

Re: Clutch problem?

Did you look at the clutch movement, by operating the pedal when you had the inspection cover removed for greasing the throw out bearing?

Re: Fallow up on balance beads

The nice thing regarding dynabeads, is they balance the drum as well, while a balanced tire/wheel could still have balance issues if the drum isn’t perfectly balanced. Don’t know if that is a viable...

Re: Crank shaft pulley wobbles

There is a special washer the venders sell that allows the crank nut to actually mate against the pulley. Assuming that when you tighten it, it doesn’t draw up tight. I personally wouldn’t use the...

Re: starter not engaging

This is similar to the brake return spring. I can’t see why you would need it, it probably can’t hurt. I have 35 ish starters and have never seen this spring.

Re: starter not engaging

That’s not a spring. It’s the spiral cut the bendix rides back and forth on.

Clean the oxidation off your points! Did you check compression with all the plugs, out for at least three revolutions with the throttle wide open.?

Re: Cannot get the quail back on

My quail runs just into the clear. If it goes thru and above, I’m close to boil over. My mercury thermometer is accurate as long as I’ve had it, and it’s been on the car for 40,000 miles.
