Re: Best graphite thickness

Thanks Ron. I've used mine twice and wasn't sure if I should buy a new set next time.

Re: 21 stud motor oil leak rear of pan area

Iíll see if I can replace the rear main bearing while Iím down there. And add a drain tube if there isnít one.

Re: 21 stud motor oil leak rear of pan area

Thanks Jack! That image helped me to understand. I can make up a similar gasket.

Re: 21 stud motor oil leak rear of pan area

Adam, Iím going to investigate if my motor has the same failed gasket. Where did you buy your replacement gasket?

Re: 21 stud motor rebuild, beginner questions

That is my understanding too Brian. (but I didn't know about the tube). The car sat for about 20 years after a rebuild. I bought it two years ago and have done 2500 miles, but with a constant spray...

Re: 21 stud motor rebuild, beginner questions

Thanks! Thatís good info. Iím not sure what it take to pull out the whole crank. I guess all the rods, mains, plus timing gear. A real seal sounds like a good improvement though. Iíll locate...

Re: 21 stud motor rebuild, beginner questions

Thank you! That page on Red's site describes it well. And I might have been overfilling the oil. I did a four-hour freeway drive and the motor leaked about 1 quart every 75 miles. Ugh. It doesn't...

21 stud motor rebuild, beginner questions

My 1937 motor is leaking badly at the rear main. I think it’s time for new piston rings. Cylinder #1 was low compression, leaking down past the rings and blowing oil out the breather and also into...

Re: where to drill 21 stud intake for PCV?

thanks Talkwrench. The issue is that the recommended PCV requires a gigantic 1" diameter hole for its grommet and there is no place on a 21 stud intake big enough to drill a hole that large. But I...

Re: where to drill 21 stud intake for PCV?

I think thatís the solution. The grommet type one that was recommended is just too big. Iíll find a valve with 1/4NPT threads. That should be easy to fit beside the generator.

Re: where to drill 21 stud intake for PCV?

Iím still hoping to hear from somebody who can say where to mount a PCV on a 21 stud motor. Maybe I need to buy a different valve, one that doesnít require a 1.0Ē diameter hole in the manifold near...

I saved a photo from an old forum thread that I can no longer find. It shows a tiny 1/4" hole drilled into the intake manifold on the passenger side beside the generator. But the PCV that everybody...

Re: Front tube shocks for 41

I need one of those upper shock brackets for my 37. Do you who sells them? I searched eBay, but didnít find anything like them.

Re: Oil pan breather and other questions 1940/41

Did you ever find a good detailed description of how to install a PCV on a 21 stud or a 59A? I’ve read over 20 threads on how to do it in an 8ba, but there isn’t much info for the early motors.

Re: Closed PCV System for my C69A

That sounds simple. I like it. But donít the carb jets and the air filter eventually get covered in oil?
