Re: Rebuilding my generator...

Watching the ammeter bounce while you crank the engine also shows you that the points are opening and closing as desired.

Re: Steering arms

A friend's car had a shimmy and he asked me over to take a look the other day. The right steering arm wiggled a little bit and we were able to tighten up the nut one flat. He says it made all the...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Are the camshafts usable in a stock block?

Re: Four Post Lift Recommendations….

You may have to modify your garage door to hug the ceiling rather than retract to the usual same elevation as the opening header.

Re: Muffler Shield Device

I’d be tempted to put in spacers to give an air gap above the sheet metal. In fact, I might go farther than temptation!

Re: Muffler Shield Device

I made one by copying the commercial style, which was fun, but it didn’t seem to make much difference, so I tossed it.

Re: Starter Problem - caught on fire

Consider installing a battery isolation switch in the ground cable.

Re: Brake Shoe Lining Information

I lived in Des Plaines and I remember that place now. Their arcing machine had a dust collection hood that seemed a bit light for asbestos.

Re: Brake Shoe Lining Information

Vic, was that All Brake in Cicero that you used? They bonded and arced my motorcycle brakes maybe 25 years ago and did a good job.

Could you measure across the flats of your lug nuts and report back?

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

What are those flanged items in the flywheel spot in picture #11 (4 of 6)? Flywheels? I don’t see the teeth.

Re: Sluggish starter

My car did fine for a long time, but then was a bad starter. It turned out that my starter cable was smaller than a #4! A proper cable made all the difference.

Re: flat crank cam

Are matching cams available?

Edit. Jeez, what a space cadet! I got the idea that the topic was the crank.

Re: Well I found my issue from my last post

It sure is easier, though. If you don’t have a helper for the hood, you can rig a rope harness to suspend it with an engine hoist.

Re: No Mess Radiator Flush

If you jack the front up a bit, you can put a 5 gal bucket under the back end of the engine pan and be nice and tidy. After that, flushing will be clear water and not bad on your driveway.

Re: Cylinder head replacing questions.

Knowing your attention to detail, I knew that you would spot “seemed”. I also threw in “without measuring”. My good experience is with just one head install, so maybe it was luck.

Re: Cylinder head replacing questions.

These abrasive brushes can be selected in a fine grit and without measuring, seem to not remove metal. My success with copper spray on graphite after using rol-loc brushes and dremel wire wheels...

Re: Cylinder head replacing questions.

A standard tap will cut away too much metal in the stud holes, use a chaser/thread restorer such as this:
