Default Re: Flathead Valve Adjusting Methods ??'s

Yes - used to see the Offy's at both Joe Reath's and Joe Hunt's places. The valve guys at Reath's would bitch and moan about all the work it took to reach up inside the cylinders to do valve jobs . . . lots of time and $$$ spent.

As Pete noted, the idea of a "radius lifter" on the flathead really came from Offy from everybody I've ever talked too. Isky made an awful lot of 404-A cams . . . by using the Offy radius lifter idea (and Pete has too!)

But what an engine . . . wish I had a big Offy - turbocharged and injected!
