Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

Thanks for the pic.



Will do, one was pretty corroded, the other 3 looked ok but yes all 4 will be replaced. If it wasn't for all the hi temp rtv it probably would have leaked into the pan.

Re: Looking to identify parts and value

The one in my photo is 31 inch exact. It looks slightly off in the photo due to camera angle. My '38 has the original interior, or what's left of it. I pulled the tattered upholstery off the trim for...

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

It is quite possible it was not finished to correct clearance. I can't find a picture of a good NOS cover to compare. The 2 best pics I could find, one from the hamb another from ebay. The hamb one...

I'm not beside it right now and don't have a pic of the back of the gear, but no numbers on the front. Can you tell from the gear??

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

I had found what I believe to be the source of the metalic bits but hadn't traced the source of the brass particles. I think I found it. I couldn't remove the front cover until I removed the crank...

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

Thanks Mart, and all who have commented.

Good to know that flat spot on the plunger is supposed to be there.

It does look pretty good inside but I am concerned about #3 cylinder wall. I feel...

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

Oh ya, those piston rods...in searching for info, I could only find information on the most common for 59A which are 29A6200 rods. This C59A has 29A6205 rods which have differences from all others....

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

I managed to get back at it, finished the stand bracket and got to disassembly. I am thinking at this point, the metal bits in the oil were from the circlip damage to the #3 cylinder wall and the...

Re: Looking to identify parts and value

Correct me if I'm wrong. Isn't the styling the same or quite simliar for:

38 deluxe >>> 39 standard
39 deluxe >>> 40 standard

If they fit '40 standard then they have a better chance of fitting...

Re: Why not a new casting

That's a good one Tubman.

Most realized dreams require 3 things: passion, money and know how. Majority of us are missing 1 of these components.

The creation of the flathead was a dream...

Re: C59A bearings questions

It doesn't, very well. Stock 59a came with shared floating bearings (2 rod on 1 bearing) with single oil hole on crank rod journal. Stock C59a (Canadian 59a) came with shared floating bearings (2...

C59A bearings questions

Hey guys, I've got another thread going "Engine removal '38 deuxe" but figured I would start a new thread for this for clarity.

Re: Why not a new casting

Probably more likely that the next available option will be a 3D printed flathead block with an electric motor hidden inside. Or is that sacrilege?

Don't get me wrong, I'd love the availability of...

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

Yes, I will replace this. I love the fix it idea but if any leak occurred, there would be major oil pick up problems.

From what I've read and heard, they never stayed in place; always returning to idle. Seen some story about a guy using his company gas card wedged in to it to use a cruise control. Long story short,...

Re: wiper motor ID?
