Re: It's Friday. Time for a Flathead video. Crusty Flatty Pt.15.

I agree! we're not going to let you stop these little ventures.
Usually, when I'm in my easy chair, my wife yells at me to turn off the sound on my tablet. With your videos, she says not a word. I...

Re: It's Friday. Time for a Flathead video. Crusty Flatty Pt.15.

What fun! Curious, how did you trim the liners flush with the deck? Do you have a mill?

Re: I guess its time ???

A sad time for us Jim. Most of us old flathead guys are getting used to living with increasing limitations, as our bodies begin to let us down. Nothing is forever, but you enter this stage of life...

Re: Tuesday Tech: Which valve to adjust? Mart's easy method.

That's a clever observation Mart. Your ability to coherently keep it straight mentally is impressive, but my undisaplenned brain can only manage the 1 full turn past peak opening on one at a time....

Re: High compression engine life.

Terry, I purchased a 6.1 head from Snyders around late September last year. My experience was the front of my head is just under 1/8" short of the block. No problem, as I'm not that finiky. I got...

Re: Flathead Friday: Using a vintage valve seat cutter!

Very fun and interesting episode Mart. I love your seat cutting tool! Looks to maintain the proper geometry very well. I have a big collection of valve tools, and that is one I have not seen. Great...

Re: Shifting fork rivet instalation...

Steve, check to be sure the holes are the same size. if the shaft and shift fork have differing holes the roll pin wont solve the looseness. You may have to increase a smaller hole.

Re: spark plug caps

I like the dressy look, copper and brass, but hate chrome. Brass has that old brass era charm.

Re: High compression engine life.

Even if it lead to shorter bearing life, i wouldn't hesitate to use the 6.1 head. The contribution to better drivability in today's traffic is impressive. It's like my "A" is much happier!

Re: brand new idle jet seperated

Ditto on that source. When you see the care they take with communicating, and packaging of items that are always top quality you will want them as your primary source for the products they carry.

Re: Shifting fork rivet instalation...

For those, who like me, feel more comfortable with some assurance a roll pin will never come out, safety wire the roll pin in. I just ran the wire through the roll pin and wrapped the wire through...

Re: Points Cam ?

Thank you Kurt. I guess I was seeing that as well. Nice to have a confirmation. The "B" points almost snap open.

Points Cam ?

Can someone tell me how to identify a "A" points cam from a "B" points cam?

I think the ramp opens the points more quickly with the "B" cam. The "A" cam seems to open and close at about the same...

Re: Rust!!

Agree, when one states rust, the variables are immense. Need details and photos. What is the interior like, are subrails your target, or just the usual lower cowl door bottom or rear rockers ?.??

Re: Question re liners in a relieved block.

I used a carbide burr that was ball shaped. To do it again, I would use a cylindrical burr with a ball end. With just the ball it is more difficult to control the burrs tendency to wander. Whatever...

Re: Is this junk

Clean it up, chamfer the damage around the oil hole, and you will be good to go as long as there is not a crack somewhere.
