Re: 9T cylinder heads...

Any chance you could scan that and post the pic.
Be a good reference for those with the early heads.

Re: Piston to head clearancing

Nah, if it's a coper gasket, installing it and toqueing it down for measurement purpose, won't make it a used gasket. Just refit to the same side, it'll be as good as new.
You can also grease the...

Re: Piston to head clearancing

Yup, your measurements are what I normally find on uncut heads and OE Ford pistons.

Re: Flathead V-8 tops 200 MPH Rear engine modified 27 Ford roadster

Good work Ronnie,
How are you locating the roller lifters to keep them from turning in the lifter bores? Do you "key" them like the isky 404A or similar, or with straps like most of the OHV stuff?...

Re: 1949 flathead v8 no acceleration

"Timing seems significantly advanced at idle" , Sounds like a loadamatic with its vacuum line connected to manifold vacuum. "vacuum at idle is zero" and vacuum reading goes up. Where are you...

Re: condensor keeps going bad

Don't throw any of the distributor caps away if there not broken. Some folk still use um and like um (they can run real good in fine fettle) but those caps and the little front caps on some...

Re: condensor keeps going bad

Mark,
NOS condensers are prone to fail, some are bad right outa the box, some can be OK for some months, or any where between. Trust me, been there. Currently I've been using condensers from The...

Re: 59AB head

Edelbrock and Offy heads use the long studs/bolts in all the holes, Navarro heads use stock length studs in the stock locations, at least the old ones did.
There are three different length...

Re: New 97 carb for my 51 F1..now pings

Max,
I have heard about Stromberg "8BA" replacement carbs from the 50's but never seen one in the flesh, so I can't comment on how they are setup vacuum wise.
I have seen a couple of 97's that have...

Re: Best carb and linkage set up?

51 Merc,
That's a nice setup you have there, do I spy the "lid" off the original Merc carb adapted to the edelbrock? Does this then have the stock Merc air cleaner on the back? Like to see a pic of...

Re: New 97 carb for my 51 F1..now pings

Max,
The ported vacuum bases on the new stromberg 97, aren't compatible with the Loadamatic.
The loadamatic doesn't use ported vacuum, it uses a combination of above the throttle plate (ported)...

Re: Opinion on PCV valve for flathead?

That's contrary to what I have found. On a wide band gauge setup and on a workshop exhaust sniffer, the difference was notable, hence my post.
And again, we're talking a supercharged engine here....

Re: Opinion on PCV valve for flathead?

Try plumbing in a air/fuel ratio gauge and see what happens when you add a pcv.
Pcv's are a vacuum leak however you look at them, modern stuff's computer's deal with it fine, it's a bit of a job...

Re: Opinion on PCV valve for flathead?

Yup, still a kind of vacuum leak attached to the carb base. And still obviously oil fume laden air.
Just not something I would do.

Re: OD solenoid seals

On my overdrives there is most definitely a seal in the solinoid as well as a seal in the case. Most of my solenoids are from Early (49-51) but also have a couple of 12 volt solinoids, they both have...

Re: Opinion on PCV valve for flathead?

Yes the pan vent needs to be blocked. Not sure about the pcv hose going below the blower, these pcv chaps work with vacuum not boost.
I personally would not use a pcv on a supercharged engine. It...

Re: Would you try to save this?

Ronnie, he stated in a post above that its a 59 block but its the odd "replacement" block with a 3 1/16 bore.
I have one of these stupid blocks, and I'm very surprised it went 3 5/16 without windows...

Re: Caburetor

Because it is, if you remove the air cleaner, open the choke flap I think it's got a load of writing on the float bowl, you can see this through the choke opening.
