Re: Source 59AB large port Intake gaskets

What's the application of the engine? Having built a few street engines, I find the stock ports do a fine job. Compression and displacement, my 280 with EAB can is one of them.

Mike Davision did in his heads, I used them on the Hydro engine. Also Kong heads had them at the top of the head between the valves. Not the best place. The combustion process starts at the plug, and...

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

Those are a nice set of heads, but the plug would be better off in the center of the transfer area, This would provide a much shorter flame front and with a powertip plug stay nice and clean.

Re: late flathead oiling?

there also should be a grub screw between the two. this forces the oil through the filter. If you don't use a filter, you must remove the screw or you'll prevent the oil from getting to the bearings....

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

I don't understand why the aftermarket doesn't move the plug to the center of the transfer area and be done with it. This has allot of benefits, besides running into the exhaust valve. Run a power...

Re: 221 connecting rods

I'm sure you can get a used 91a or 21a rod for someone. I don't have any spares. Then a reground crank and a new set of floaters will fix it. Now the late 59/8ba crank will not drop right into the...
