Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

Looking at the pulley, I have three button head screws that I'll have to change to hex head to drill them for the safety wire.
I'll wire from crank bolt to one of the three bolts. Should I wire the...

Re: NGK Plugs

I'm using NGK's in my blown flathead with excellent results. They were recommended by some well known people here and so far so good. My 2 cents.

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

So I'm having my machinist make me a 3/8" thick washer at the proper diameter (1.750 OD) with a grade 8 bolt and the Nord-Lock system. I'll torque to 65-70 lbs and check it everytime I go for a ride....

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

Could there be a problem with the space between the pulley face and crank face? It's about a 3/16" recess.

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

To Gary and others about the torque.
I was just going by the torque values I found here on the barn.
I'm using grade 8 bolts so I can definitely crank it down. I think I'd like to try the Nord-Lock...

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

It's a pretty snug fit as I remember it. I can pull the belts and check to see if my memory serves me right!

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

Not sure if I could drill the shank, but the camera's a great idea. I use three of them on board to record A/F reading, fuel pressure, vacuum and rpm when tuning.
Thanks!

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

Lotsa great reading Fordy! The crank is new as was the bolt. I'm looking into the Nord-lock washer system. They seem to hold up to just about any situation.
I was using grade 8 bolts, but no lock...

Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

So this is the second time my crank pulley bolt came loose and disappeared onto the road. The first time it happened, I just figured I didn't tighten it enough. I installed a new bolt, torqued it to...

Am I missing something here?? The...
