Re: Flathead / Ardun Question

I dont think there is anything specific about the sound of an Ardun compared to many other engines, but they sure are sweet.

Re: 6 volt change to 12 volt (pros and cons)

I can't think of any cons to switching to 12V other than doing the work to do it. However a 6v system works ok.

Re: Oil Pressure question on new 8BA

Thanks for the input. Its a mechanical gauge, just a generic brand at that, but I have not checked it against another mechanical gauge to see if its acurate.

Re: Flathead parts questions

The Grant rings that came for my Ross pistons were not chrome rings, They were part number P2360.000 listed in their catalog as: plain cast, racing overbore 3.313 for 239 motor.

Re: Flathead parts questions

My Ross pistons came with Grant rings. I dont think Ross would use a poor quality ring. I agree that rings will seal up better if broken in under a good load.

Re: Blown head gasket?

After closer inspection and cleaning up both surfaces this area looks suspect to me. On the head surface there seems to be a little bit surface degradation from corrosion. what do you guys think?
