Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Just a shot in the dark here so don't laugh. Is the cam gear a press on? If so, could it have slipped to cause this problem? If it is a bolt on cam gear and possibly slotted, could it have moved?

Re: NGK Plugs

GB, B-4L is a hotter plug. Probably a number of reasons to use a hotter plug. I've used them in engines that used oil and they ran better and burned cleaner than with a colder plug. Otherwise, I use...

Re: Airtex E8902

Here's a "work around" that will enable you to use

that pump. I think I picked this up off the "Barn" a
few years ago, but I don't know who posted it. It's
fairly self explanatory.

Re: Rear brakes 40

Looking at your original photos of the rear brakes, it looks like the wheel cylinders and shoes are not assembled on the backing plate correctly.

On the Lockheed system, the long brake shoe...

Re: Off shore adjustable lifters

Why worry? Just buy a set of Johnson adjustable lifters from Topline as Gary suggests or buy them from Gary; "Gosfast" Then you are assured of getting the real thing.

Re: rear gear 3.08-1

Unless someone has changed your rear gear, you should
have a 3.73 to 1 gear ratio. Why not look around for an
