Re: head stud removal

I don't have Ford's, thread spec for the studs but, I do for the tapped holes. Ford spec for the drill, is 8.9mm (.3504). Yes, Ford, even in the '30's, used a metric size drill!

The holes are to...

I do it slightly different.

I punch in the bore (3.2275), then I hit the squared button ( ), after that, I multiple by .7854, then times stroke (4) and finally, times 8 = 261.80225148

Darn, I...

Re: Stuck block two questions

Yes, that was my whole point. Removing the pistons w/o damaging the block. Plus, you no longer have the sludge to deal with. Good blocks are hard to come by, right?

BTW, there are still Hot Tanks...

Re: Stuck block two questions

Take it down to a machine shop and have it hot tanked.

It will eat the pistons and give you a clean engine to work with.

Re: 1936 water pumps

Another option for the early pumps, are the truck pumps. The impeller is longer.

According to Ford, the head mounted truck pumps are 40 gpm @ 3600 rpm. The car pumps are 25 gpm and all the block...

Re: for sale listing of the day!

On the generator, even with that price, I think he'd have to pay you after you charged him for rust removal and rebuilding it.

I've thrown lots better stuff than that away.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

I assume that your working with a bolt on cam gear and not a press on?

If so, this is how you can time the cam. turn the engine, until the valve are both open, the same amount. You can do that...

If that is a Continental, it will be 1790 ci (5.75 x 5.75). When in the Army, as a mechanic, I went to track vehicle school at Ft Benning, GA. The ones I worked on were in the M60 tanks and were all...

Re: 1949 Ford State Police car

In '57, the largest engine in Merc's and Linc's was the 368 Y block. The 430 didn't come out, until '58. It was called a MEL (Merc, Edsel, Linc). I had the 410 version, in my '58 Edsel Corsair.

Re: Pop-up Adds at Bottom of Screen

Ryan, I would like to add my thanks for removing the adds.

I very much appreciate how you think and what motivates you.

It's a truly great site and I access it, all most every day.

Re: Pop-up Adds at Bottom of Screen

I agree with everyone else. They are very annoying! They would be much easier to put up with if, they didn't "flash" like they do.

Re: Winfield su1a

I think the R1 would be more streetable. I would call it more like a 3/4 race cam. Compare it to the Harmon-Collins 3/4 race cam.

Re: Winfield su1a

The Ex numbers @ .050 don't add up I think the 1 should be -1:
18/58 @ .020 = 256* 110 LC
53/13 @ .020 = 246* 110 LC

3/43 @ .050 = 226* 110 LC
39/1 @ .050 = 220* 109 LC

Re: Winfield su1a

This might help and it lists another Isky carded SU1A but, the timing for the lobes is reversed on it.

It will give you a idea of where the cam lays, compared to other race cams.
