Ryan-
I am searching past posts and typed a word wrong. I corrected the one letter that was wrong and searched again and got this:

"This forum requires that you wait 10 seconds between searches. Please try again in 5 seconds."

Why? Do people really abuse your system by searching too fast or too often?

I find it annoying.


Thanks.

Hi every one. We are new and I have been designated to post - hence - gogrannygo. Can't figure out how to post. We have a 1928 tudor and the motor completely out and disassembled. The mechanic is going to re-bore the head for new .040 pistons. The crank is out of round where the connecting rods attach and he is going to grind it. We need to order new insert rods, but MAC's can't tell us the size of the journal bearings so he will know what size to grind the crank to. Can anyone give us standard size that the crank should be ground to in order to fit the new rods? If it's .010 or .020 for the oversize rods, what should the crank be ground to? We are going to use the new insert connecting rods - twice as much as babbit, but that was his suggestion. Thanks in advance. Gogrannygo

Default B model oiling

On the later b and 33/34 4 cyl engines,how is the rear main sealed,is it the same as the A engines,and is the oil supply to the rear main on these engines really presurised ,
My reason for asking is if I presurised the mains on my A engine will the rear main slinger be OK?
Thanks Lawrie

You need to put this in the general section as a separate thread. This is part of welcome thread.

Hello Everyone,

I am planning to ship a 1928 model a coupe to Belgium but i would like to order some patch panels and get them shipped with the car...
The lower cowl panels and the lower quarter panels i need for sure maybe floor? Does anyone know a good website to order and any idea of the price? Does this look an awfull job (on the pics) or managable... I have a very good welder as a friend (No experience myself)

thanks allot!!!
