Re: frame crack repair

Can you get in there enough to V out the cracks and get a TIG torch in to weld both sides of the cracks? I believe I could easily get my water cooled Weldcraft WP-20 torch in there with a "button...

Re: Rebuild Advice 8BA

It all depends on what you want to do as far as doing the least to get the compression up on the bad cylinder (bare minimum), versus a rebuilt, some slight performance upgrades (to pull hills...

Re: Pinion Location in Banjo

Hmmmmm . . . did you heat the case and freeze the pinion before reassembly? Are you the guy who assembled it?

I don't remember there being a "hard stop" in the case bore, so my guess is that the...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Just some numbers to ponder: His readings show the exhaust closing at 9 ATDC - with .014 lash. The cam card specifies 19 degrees ATDC - with zero lash. So you can assume that with zero lash, it...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

While one cam-gear tooth is approximately 8 degrees of cam timing, the crank turns at twice the speed, so it is 16 on the crank.

360 / 44 = 8.18 (cam gear has 44 teeth)
360 / 22 = 16.36 ...

Re: Engine Problem

Not really as the most common valve lash issue is TOO much of it.

Also, typical valve lash values for performance cams are about .015, so it is doubtful that it is just a bit too tight and...

Re: Engine Problem

What is also concerning is that it starts and idles just fine . . . which means the valves are not hitting the plugs.

Then you rev it up and the plugs get whacked and closed. If this is the...

Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

Re: Getting paint inside boxed in areas?

Another option (though pricey) is to have the body stripped of all oils, etc and then e-Coated and epoxy primered (part of the process). This will coat everything extremely well and is a lasting...

Re: ford aluminum heads

The only real con that I can think of is that aluminum heads tend to have increased corrosion and electrolysis issues over cast iron.

If you correctly maintain your cooling system it should not...

Re: flathead cam

Question: Did the cam come in an engine that had a crankshaft in it? Would love to know if it had a 180 degree (flat) crankshaft? There were some guys that did this (usually in dirt track cars) -...

Re: flathead cam

Keep in mind that Pete is talking about a custom made billet cam core - usually made out of AQ/BQ 8620 steel. The initial operation is to make a cam core (lobes, journals, etc) - but oversize in the...

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Bill has it correct - as this particular cam has the same exhaust lobe profile as the intake. There are other cams where the profiles are different and the split overlap method doesn't work - you...

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

The cam card clearly denotes what it SHOULD be - and that the checking clearance is 0. What he is probably going to find is that the cam does not match the card - which I've seen MANY times. If the...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Or, if you have "adjustables", just back out the adjuster until you feel it tight against the valve (when the lifter is on the heel of the cam). Even if you go a bit too far, you've taken up the...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

You should do it with zero lash - and use the .050 numbers (they tend to be more accurate). We have no idea as to how the opening ramps influence the timing - only way to figure it out is with the...
