Re: 59ab compression numbers

I've noticed in my trials that if the fuel system isn't perfect, the flatty won't be either. A good fuel pump and carb working properly, that's key for my '35. I'v chased this problem and finally got...

Re: Flathead Running rich

Hey Brad, I just popped on and saw your post. I have been through this same nightmare since I purchased my '35 in Dec. After doing everything several times over, my problem was all carburetor. I even...

Re: Synthetic Oil?

I think those are amazing numbers on that light weight oil. Your engine must be "tight" ! I didn't think you could run that lo wt oil and then still get that kind of pressure. I get high, (35),...

Re: Synthetic Oil?

I'm with you, 20/50 Castrol is my final choice and very good results. 1/2 qt every 600 miles and change every 1000!

Re: Synthetic Oil?

Curious! What kind of oil pressure are you getting at full heat? Do you drive it much? Thanks

Re: 1935 or 1936 Water Temperature Indication

My '35 ran toward the top at running temp, about 3/4 the way. The problem I had was not knowing what the real temp was or more so what the other side of the engine was doing since they are using...

Re: Oil pressure mystery

Just noticed this post and I'm surprised that the type of oil hasn't been mentioned yet. I've been searching this topic since I bought my '35 and settled with Castrol 20/50 oil, 5 qts at change. At...

Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

You're absolutely right 51woodie! Since I put the 180's in I no longer have that black soot coming out the exhaust and the plugs are looking normal instead of sooted up. I'll keep the 180's!!

Talking Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

UPDATE:

So after three day trips, none less than 60 miles and a few short runs in town, this is what I came up with.

Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

My radiator is original and the tube runs from the center of the top tank down the front and exits at the bottom of the radiator. My conclusion is that an overflow tank doesn't solve the water loss...
