Re: 3rd engine failure...getting frustrated

I have no dog in this hunt, but I have made an observation.

The quality of aftermarket Model A parts have been questionable over the years.
Why? maybe it has to do with the fact that trying to...

Re: Bearing Socket Size

To Katy's point, the stock Model A is Babbitt and shims.
Many thought have been converted to inserts and full pressure oiling.
Many have been also "modified" with partial attempts.
Many have been...

Re: help me narrow down oil selection

liquid white lead, that brings back memories, best tapping compound ever.
Toxic and carcinogenic all in one, saved some very expensive parts.

Re: help me narrow down oil selection

Gene,

The cam failures in the Hotrods is not the oil "slinging" off. It is a matter of the combination of the components and altering the said components. Usually the cam is a cast iron, the...

Re: Bearing Socket Size

CatMan,

do not despair, these are rudimentary mechanical assemblies. After all, when new there wasn't necessarily an ASE program to train mechanics.

You have to look at the physics, when you...

Re: Jim Brierely"s Book

I had to read it several times too, before it made sense to me.

And Dave, just because you take one to a shop that is supposed to know doesn't mean they do.

A little knowledge can save you lots...

Re: Connecting rods

Somewhere around here is one that went thru the side of the block, the other parts were swept up by the track sweeper at Indy.

BTW, there are a few sets still available

Re: Oil pump id ?

Bob,
you are correct, I believe it is an early "A" pump.
more than likely the housing has only a 9/16" bore instead of the later 5/8"

It can be modified to increase the output if necessary, just...

Re: model b engine cm gear

John,

That is good intel, some of us have been talking about restricting down the exit hole to raise the available pressure in the galley.
It would make sense that a 1/4" hole can pass enough oil...

Re: model b engine cm gear

Thanks Benson, yes the "B" pumps are different.

One of the changes had to do with the thru bore in the housing and the diameter of the shaft, allowing for more volume. The feed hole out the front...

Re: model b engine cm gear

Interesting article, have seen it before.

If you will indulge me, a pressurized system must have some form of pressure regulator or relief in the system. Not saying that your car doesn't have one,...

Re: model b engine cm gear

And, the "B" motor is not a pressure fed oil system, it must be modified to make pressure.
