Re: 1934 roadster dash

Boy, Elvis is one metal working genius! All the tools he makes to form metal . . . using just a hydraulic press. Hid postings and associated methods/ideas are well worth the 19-page read.

Re: 1934 roadster dash

That would be cool . . . as I have a 'spare' 34 dash . . . and a 34 roadster

Re: Video of flathead build and dyno test

Exactly . . . when they're probably making more like 125 HP . . . maybe!

Re: 59ab needs clutch in 40 tudor

When I was first building racing Flatheads (early 70's), Joe Reath had me go to 'Long Beach Clutch and Brake' . . . they custom built all my 10" pressure plates. Then also relined, arced and did all...

Re: 1934 roadster dash

Great thread! I have a 34 roadster that is currently "waiting its turn" and I have a 33 Roadster dash. I don't remember if it has the "swappable" panels or not (don't believe so). Even though I...

Re: 59ab needs clutch in 40 tudor

There will probably never be a consensus, but I have recently had RAM Clutches build me custom LONG style clutches for flathead usage - and specially weighted steel billet flywheels. The guy that I...

Re: Wrist pin bushings

That sounds like a nice fixture - keeps everything totally aligned - good idea!

I imagine you swedge/roller burnish the new bushings into the rods? With thin bushings, this is almost always a...

Re: 8BA Compression Test - Is it worth and an engine strip down?

Typically this is due to the accel pump not putting out enough 'squirter' fuel or not enough at the right time. It is usually related to the mixture going LEAN until the main fuel delivery...

Re: Thoughts/Opinions on Piston Rings

One reason that I end up with custom bore sizes is due to ring selection. If you talk to the piston manufacturers, they'll tell you that it is getting increasingly hard to find quality high...

Re: Thoughts/Opinions on Piston Rings

It is not just the reduction is friction, I like a chrome-moly top-ring. I use chrome moly rings on every other brand/type of performance engine, so it makes sense to me to use them on flatheads. ...

Re: Broken stud removal with a new twist! + Engine stand mods! Machining time at Mart

I do like the idea of drilling the center of the stud - maybe only 1/4" or so down. This would give me more area for my TIG weld to adhere too - which in my mind would help the whole deal. I have...

Re: Thoughts/Opinions on Piston Rings

The cost of Ross pistons and good metric rings will be over $600, so definitely not a "cheap" solution - but there are just not many "cheap solutions" for most of the components we use in...

Re: Thoughts/Opinions on Piston Rings

Hey Thanks Tony! Can you drop me a picture of the one you have? Might be easier to just buy one from somebody who already has them designed, versus making them myself (even though I have a 3D CAD...

Re: Need H10 coke bottle plugs. Got ANY

The fact that judges take off points for consumable items like spark plugs has always seemed ridiculous to me. Hell, why not require original points, original brake shoes, original tires, Henry air...

Re: Sleeved 59AB Questions

Re: Thoughts/Opinions on Piston Rings

Do you use an aluminum or a steel torque plate? I'm going to make an aluminum one on the NC mill - as I use aluminum heads so this makes sense to me. I'll probably groove it for o-ring material as...

Re: Thoughts/Opinions on Piston Rings

RE: Ross Pistons

I definitely prefer modern metric ring packages over the old Grant/Hastings stuff.

I've used both TotalSeal rings (worked really well) and also other metric ring packs in...

Re: Speaking of engines

Hey Tubman, the infamous 'Pencil Test' is related to 39 - 42 flatheads . . . do not believe it applies to these earlier 21 stud engines (I believe they ALL pass the test).
