Re: Internal Breather Tube

Is this tube necessary on an 8ba? Did OEM engines have them? I bought 2 8ba engines to build. Neither one of them has the internal tube. I am confused.

Re: Pressure test plate

I agree.
if you don't expose the valve seats, how do you check to see if the ports/seats are leaking?

Re: Center Exhaust Port Crack

No. It is an active crack, discovered with a pressure test and soapy water.
I marked it with a Sharpie because it is very hard to see.

Re: Center Exhaust Port Crack

A good man could. No good men around here. I don't think i could.

By the way, it is a very small leak. Takes over 2 hours to leak from 40 lbs to 5lbs.

Re: Death wobble

Mainly on newer 4WD pickups. Bumper is part of stiffness of frame. Might not apply to this era of vehicles.
The point is: don't rule out anything that is not correct.

Re: Death wobble

Even something as simple as loose bumper bolts can cause death wobble. Check everything.
