Re: Nessary spare parts for 1500 miles trip

Depending on type of ignition, I'd have a spare set of points, a condenser, cap and rotor. You might also think about radiator hoses and a set of hose clamps (multiple sizes). Brake fluid as well. ...

Re: Carb Jetting and other engine advice needed

Thanks Tim - I don't have any Edelbrock's with heat - other than the Slingshot (which is a great street manifold - one of the best).

I'm with you on the 4x2 manifolds - they were pretty much used...

Re: Carb Jetting and other engine advice needed

I have a couple Edelbrock 3 and 4 carb manifolds, Navarro 3 carbs, Weiand 4 carbs, etc. - don't believe that any of them have heat risers. The Edelbrock 'Super' duals do not either. The SlingShot...

Re: Calling all rear axle experts! Knocking noise coming from rear axle

You should be able to get the yellow gear mesh compound at Jegs:

Re: Carb Jetting and other engine advice needed

Question: I don't believe that intake has heat risers anyway . . . correct? So, there is probably nothing to plug. What are the cubic inches of the engine- any idea? If it was mine, I'd just...

Re: 97 Carb - S/W settings

All of the engines I build are higher performance types - so I use the W setting all the time as having a bigger/longer squirt of fuel seems to help on acceleration.

Note: Stromberg 48 carb bases...

Re: Compression checking question

You'll be able to tell that it has compression, but really no idea as to how much. I'd throw a starter on it.

Re: Offy heads

I have a NOS set of Edmunds for a 59AB . . . might just have to dig them out and checkout the sparkplug location again. Thanks for the reminder . . .

Re: Offy heads

Or, they raised their prices because Edelbrock couldn't deliver a damn thing after they sold the company . . . took almost 2 years for them to get back into production.

Re: 1932 s/w speedometer info

Cheapest performance part you can buy! Car can immediately go 120 instead of 80 or 90 - cool. :D:D

Re: oil filter canister spacers

I used a 1" bar of 6061 Aluminum - chucked it in my lathe and whacked a few out. Easy job, works perfectly and looks good.

Re: Calling all rear axle experts! Knocking noise coming from rear axle

This could surely be true - especially on the side where the axle comes through the carrier and not through the ring gear. The answers should become quite clear once it is taken apart and all parts...

Re: Offy heads

Thanks FlatJack . . . that is actually good news. There is absolutely no reason to NOT have 3/4" reach plugs in any of the newer heads being manufactured.

Re: Engine questions

Also, I don't like what appears to be rust on the valve springs . . . do you see rust other places? Getting rust into the oil and running through the bearings isn't such a good thing.

I'd take...

Re: Engine questions

Also, on those main cap supports - you won't need them and if you were going to use them, the right way to install them is to align bore/hone the mains afterwards - to ensure that the center main...

Re: Engine questions

I like the ideas of diesel fuel or mineral oil to wash things down. If it was mine, I'd take it apart and clean the heck out of it - probably cost you a weekend of time and $250 in gaskets.

Re: Weird flathead lifters

My guess is that it is a hydraulic lifter, but the engine is not plumbed to provide oil pressure to the lifter bores, so the lifters are just collapsed and they ran it that way.

Looks like you'll be ready to go in no time. There is nothing better than installing, starting and trying out a new engine . . . like Christmas as a Kid every time!

Re: Calling all rear axle experts! Knocking noise coming from rear axle

It is possible that the drive teeth on the axle and the spider gears are worn, but you should be able to easily reproduce a noise/issue by letting on/off the accelerator to load/unload the meshing of...
