Re: Disc Brakes V Bendix Brakes-Which performs best??

The stock brakes in my '51 are just fine, thank you, I can lock 'em up any time I want to. Since there are no mountains (an few large hills) in Minnesota, I don't see any time I would have the need...

Re: combustion chamber design

There is one exception in aftermarket heads. Edmunds (at least the three sets of 8BA's I have) have the sparkplug relocated just enough so that it clears the exhaust valve and allows the use of...

Re: Wheel/Tire Fitment 51 Vicky

Thanks, Ken; that saves me a lot of crawling around with a ruler. Look in the manual? Duh! Why didn't I think of that? A positive offset of .62 gives a backspacing of 3.12".

It looks like the OP...

Re: Flat spot that just won't go away

Or perhaps a bad vacuum gauge; can you check yours out on another vehicle or perhaps borrow another?

Re: Wheel/Tire Fitment 51 Vicky

Are you still interested in the measurements of the stock wheels and the later ones I have on the rear? Since you are looking at 16's, the measurements of the stock 15's may not apply, or even be...

Re: howdy from mrmoose

I agree with everyone; that is one great looking truck. I think about getting something like that from time to time, to replace my '99 F150.:) Then I realize that I'd still need the F150 for dump...

Re: New guy with a 1952 Flathead

You know, I don't actually know. However, when I measured my engines, the valves always had a bunch (.040-.060"?) more clearance over them than the pistons, so I didn't worry about them.

How's...

Re: What is the Application of these OS Valves?

Win, I agree with you. Give me a few days and let me go through my "stash" and see what I have, as I try to save all of the original parts I can. No promise, but I'll look.

Perhaps a bunch of us...

Wanted : Passenger side Edmunds 8BA head

The title says it all. I am looking for a passenger side Edmunds finned aluminum head for an 8BA. I have a good drivers side, so the head I need should be usable, not a "wall hanger". I would prefer...

Re: Western WA shops

I swear your location said "NC" when I posted my response. Oh well, maybe I'm just losin' it; not uncommon at my age.

Re: New guy with a 1952 Flathead

If you are going to rework them, I think 8BA's would be as good as EAB's. It costs the same to mill .020" as it does to go .040", and after that the effort is the same. EAB's are going way up in...

Re: Western WA shops

"WA"? Isn't that the abbreviation for Washington state? Or do you mean Washington DX? Maybe "Western VA", given your location?

Re: 39/41 rear wheel spats

Now I am getting confused; I thought "wheel covers" were those fancy "hubcaps" that snapped into the wheel rim and covered the entire inside of the wheel.:confused:

Re: old or new motor

If it has been running like this for a while (months, years with no water in the oil or coolant loss), I'd bet that the block is good. That being said, it will have to be torn down and checked, but...

Re: swap meet find

Coop, I will remind you that the one in the second picture is a Harmon-Collins; I think that will make a difference.
