Re: Early block/late crank question

Brian up above gave you the part numbers for the necessary components to convert the rear main sealing system to be like the later ones (actual rear main seal).

I use the upgraded seals from...

Re: 59a oil pump capacity.

If it was mine, I'd put a later 49-53 pump in it - with the correct pickup (which Speedway has) . . . for added volume and pressure. Then, stretch the front oil-pressure relief spring so the one in...

Re: 59AB bearings

Also, if you're having the block honed, you should really have a good valve job done to it as well - by somebody who has the correct flathead mandrels and knows how to do the work. No reason to NOT...

Re: 59AB bearings

Looks like it was probably sitting for awhile, so I'd pull the crank, have it hot-tanked and have all the journals micro-polished. I'd probably ScotchBrite the bearings with lacquer thinner as well...

Re: Early block/late crank question

There is nothing wrong with a 39 Mercury block/engine . . . just as good as any other 239 as far as I'm concerned. If you want to put the 8BA in it, then my suggestion is to change the front of the...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Come to think of it, I think we used pre-heat treated 7075 material.

I think the most painful part of the head project is that we did not have a mill big enough to put the block in and use the...

Re: Early block/late crank question

With the assumption that it has a Mercury engine with the larger 3 3/16+ bore, you should be able to get the later 8BA rods through the bores. If it was a Ford engine with the 3 1/16 bore (221...

Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

Hey Gang, while we're at it . . . anybody happen to have a 1934 Roadster wiper motor . . . and in dire need! Drop me a PM if you have such a beast and are willing to part with it. Thanks!

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

Obviously you're talking about 49-53 heads, BUT here is a fun fact (that actually makes sense if you know the details of the flathead design). The original 39-48 Edelbrock heads had cast chambers...

Re: Big Boys Heads

It is actually over the intake valve. I've not had the luxury of talking to the original designer, though Jerry Branch was pretty much one of the gurus of taking the factory KR design and making...

The better news is that if a 'Winter Project' happened to find a way to get going, I already have rough SolidWorks models to work from (though they are quite preliminary).

Re: Big Boys Heads

FlatCad Chambers: I designed the chambers and pistons to mimic the Harley KR flathead race engine. As a purpose built race flathead, it is the most advanced of any flathead design that I know -...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Are you talking about the guy that is working on a flathead block design? If so, I've communicated with him, but never met him. I'd love to see an aluminum block flathead that supports 3.5" bores,...

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

RE: Prices . . . yes, it is completely different on the prices of Offy's versus Eddy's heads. It seems the Offy guys need to charge a lot more than in the past - probably to justify the production...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Thank you . . . they took a "team effort" to produce! Four of us were involved in this aspect of the FlatCad project. The good news is that I have all the SolidWorks 3D designs. ;)

Re: 34 pickup, finally back together but....

As I'm not sure what vintage flathead you're running - it may or may not have "soft plugs" in the oil pan rail (in the gasket mounting surface where the pan bolts up). If the engine has them, then...

Re: Big Boys Heads

It is possible to make your own heads (out of billet aluminum) - if you can produce 3D CAD models, can generate the toolpaths and have full CNC milling machine equipment.

You have to make them...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Personally, I do not like the shape of these and see no need for the "extra" amount of water. They are just big and bulky to me. I have a set of Tony Baron's heads - my version is designed for a...

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

Are you looking to buy or sell them? From the pictures, they don't look to have been excessively milled, didn't notice any broken fins. I'd say they are worth in the neighborhood of $350 - 400. ...
