Re: My ( Hardly ) Working Vacation on Orcas Island

I love that area and North.

I've been to Orcas Island, going to my favorite winter spot, Victoria.

BTW, I won my tractor pull this year, with my D17, 295 ft. I was second with the Ford 850.

Re: Piston rings

What I researched was in the minimum 4" bore size but, I would say that it would be relative to the circumference of a bore and it may be relative to the stoke length, also.

It was also dealing...

Re: Piston rings

I've been investigating narrow ring packs for about 6 months.

I noted in the article that they didn't test low tension 3/16 oil rings or that they didn't compare what the ring life might be of the...

Re: Isky ldb

I think some of those issues were address in the Ardun thread, a short time back.

Re: Just sent a new 302 CI Flathead Home . . .

Back in those days, you could still, easily get blocks that would go to 3 7/16, giving a 334 inch engine, with a 4.5 stroke.

They used a lot of those blocks at Ascot but, mostly with 4 1/8 stroke.

Re: Moved to Prineville, Or.

Welcome to Oregon.

I'm a X, CA too. I've been here 35 years and would never go back.

I'm not close to your area but, 37 miles above CA on I-5.

I haven't been to it but, there is suppose to...

Re: dead cylinder on the 53 flathead V8

Most spray cans that say "Carb & Choke" cleaner, will have Xylene and Toluene (another high penetrating solvent/paint thinner) but, they don't have any oil in them.

Xylene is a paint thinner, most...

Re: dead cylinder on the 53 flathead V8

I might suspect a galled valve stem here, from a valve remaining open for a long time and then, taking a while (to long) to get oil to it.

Spraying it with non oil bearing cleaners won't help the...

Re: 35 ford pickup weight

According to my book, Ford V8 Cars and Trucks, The '35 PU weighs 2714, the '36 weighs 2645 and the '37 weighs 2705.

It doesn't say why the '35 is heaviest and the '36, the lightest but, most, if...

Re: flathead refresh

As I said in my last sentence, you need to mic the bore.

You can do some hand fitting, if the taper isn't more than .008.

You can hone the cylinder, .003 - .005 over (a lot of work), knurl the...

Re: flathead refresh

To start with, I was a mechanic, from '62 - '70.

1. If it smokes and uses oil, the rings are probably worn, quite a bit.

2. If that is the case, it most likely has a ridge, at the top of the...

Re: early heads on 8BA block??

You an de-carbonize the combustion chamber, by running water threw the carb, while the engine runs.

Use a small coke bottle and hold your thumb over the end. Rev the engine to about 1500, start...

Re: Project ford G48 from russia

Regarding how high the front sits, in the one picture, it looks like the transverse spring was replaced, with twin springs.

Re: 21 stud engine best upgrades?

I think your best and cheapest route, would be to mill the heads.

Have them take, at least .040 off them and you will notice a difference! From what you say you want, I would guess, it would be...

Re: 1955 Ford speedometer reads too fast??

The way that I would solve this, is by using %.

If your speedo reads 65, when your actually going 55, it's 1.181818 off, if you multiply 22 teeth X that, you will get 26 teeth and that should get...

Re: Rebuilding an Ardun OHV 1954 - 1956

Regarding the FI system, I bought mine, in late '73 or early '74. At that time, they didn't recommend any fuel pump, other than the injection pump and you had to run separate lines, for the pill and...
