Re: Thoughts/Opinions on Piston Rings

Manifold vacuum for sure. I worked as an engineer in the auto industry in the 60's and 70's and ported spark was emissions related.

Re: raising fan height

There's only one person debating. I'm done anyway.

Re: raising fan height

According to the Ford/Mercury parts book dated May, 1941, the fan is as I described. I have no doubt you are capable of measuring what you have, but that isn't what the parts book lists.

Re: raising fan height

The 39 Merc uses the same fan as a 39 DeLuxe Ford - 16 3/4" 6 blade.

Re: raising fan height

I only speak from experience with my 39. I'm sure Charlie NY will back this up.

Re: raising fan height

It will cool just fine if you add a shroud.

Re: Sleeved 59AB Questions

The steel sleeves had a lip on top of them. Those engines also used steel pistons.

Re: Opinion on a 36LB motor

I sold an LB block several years ago for $800. Cleaned, magged and pressure tested. Don't remember what the bore was.

Re: Ready for Work.

Good for you, Tony. I retired from my plumbing business last year and things are a lot more peaceful. Also seem to be busier than ever. Enjoy.

Re: Oil Filter-ology

I've had the system you are probably referring to on my engine for 25 years with no problems. I would suspect improper installation caused the problems you are referring to.

Re: Book on 60HP engine. Out of print. Author unknown

Got mine quite a while ago, before they became so scarce. Great book.

Re: DISTRIBUTOR GUIDE PINS (Helmet and Crab style)

I cut the heads off of several bolts to use as guide pins. Makes the job so much easier.

Re: Holley 94 accelerator pump tuning

Usually they are marked 1-2-3. I would imagine C stands for co;d and would provide a larger shot. Cold air is denser and so would require more fuel for a correct mixture.

Re: holley 94

I still run all 3. Makes for a more even fuel distribution to all cylinders.

Re: River Rouge/ Ypsilanti - war plant worker housing

My dad worked over there as a plumber during the war. There were a number of plumbers form Oshkosh who worked over there.

Re: Another hoard for sale.

When you buy a "hoard", it has to be ultra cheap. Like 15 to 20% of what it might be valued at.

Re: installing fan in 40 coupe with 51 mercury FH

The Mercury pumps are a bad idea. The mounting holes are different and will require some kind of adapter to mount in your chassis. Use the wide belt 8RT pumps.
