Re: Model a backfire

Sure sounds like a leaking manifold gasket. Id take a propane torch, on but unlit, and run the propane around the gasket. You'll hear right away when you get to the leak.

Re: Coolant Debris Looks Like RTV

Is it possibly radiator stop-leak? I've had that stuff turn to goo after some years and make a real mess in tractors. Some can be kind of coppery colored.

Re: Engine Stand

Engine is sitting in a corner, behind some stuff so hard to get a picture but this shows how I mounted it. Works fine for me. Its just the cheap Harbor Freight stand.

Re: Mystery starting problem (or not)

Take some accurate readings with a good voltmeter before cranking and during cranking. Make sure you have a good ground strap between engine and chassis.

Re: Battery size

A battery box with a battery in it will rust. Needs to be cleaned properly and repainted periodically anyway. I don't think a board is going to make much of a difference, maybe don't use treated...

Re: i need some help. What regulator/pump for stock carb with underbody fuel cell?

Without lecturing the OP, a simple low pressure fuel pump off of Ebay with a T at the carb and a return line will supply the stock carb with fuel. I bought one for another project and it will run...

Re: Engine Stand

I used a Harbor Freight engine stand, straight out of the box, no mods or adapters needed. Works good, can flip the engine upside down easily.

Re: Water pump won't fit now.

Exactly! However, a properly functioning radiator and a clean block will not reach the temps where flashover occurs. Higher water turbulance also leads to better heat transfer too.

Re: Water pump won't fit now.
