Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

Hallo und guten Tag,

my friend means exactly the small valve shown below, which regulates the flow rate of MMO.

The floating steel cone foot was firmly corroded in the brass pan and broke off...

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

I had received an address for an MMO restorer here in the forum. He sends spare parts. I had positive contact with him, but I can't find the email address anymore.

Re: Buy flow tested carburetor jets?

Tachchen.


Drilled or unstamped nozzles were originally installed. Consumption was 20 - 22 l/100 km.


Only with the calibrated nozzles did I have a basis for adjusting the other subtleties.

I bought these tested nozzles two years ago and their quality is excellent!

Re: New Snyders catalog

It is a special gift for me to be able to leaf through the beautiful catalogs over and over again, to find tips and tricks there. In any case, nicer than the annoying screens.

And also to see...

Re: Oil filter questions.

Hi,


if you measure the oil pressure in front of the filter, then the delivery pressure of the pump is too low, or the bearing clearance is too large.
If you measure the low pressure behind...

Re: Autom. advance spark timing

Hi,


I always drive high-octane alcohol-free gasoline. I fill up with leaded fuel every now and then. (This makes the engine run much smoother.)

Modern iridium spark plugs, whose heat...

Re: Autom. advance spark timing

Guten Morgen,

with the hand lever the ignition was at -3 and with the lever almost down (gap 1/7") at 25.

It is noticeable that with the automatic ignition advance full throttle uphill the...

Re: Autom. advance spark timing

Today I mounted the NuRex centrifugal phaser. The stroboscope/flashlight ignition lamp indicates 0 degrees when idling and 28 degrees at high RPM. That's how it should be.

However, the engine...

Re: Adjusting valves

Guten Tag Randy.

I adjusted the valves these days. This is a bit tedious, but it works with patience and subsequent measurement. Note that the valve clearance can vary by 0.05mm when the tappet...

Re: Marvel inverse oiler

My additional question is if anyone knows what #5 the tiny vent hole to the vacuum side is supposed to do.

Re: Marvel inverse oiler

N'Abend Mystery Oiler.

I still haven't figured out why my Marvel Inverter is giving a lot of oil at idle and none under load. I disassembled everything again and see no mistake.

I drew a...

Colin his hint came too late, at the time of reading Snyder's had already shipped the centrifugal ignition adjuster.

In the meantime, I have...

Hi Tom,

when measured cold, a serious diagnosis is not possible. Engine at operating temperature after 20 km of hard driving is really warmed up.

I also use my powerful charger in parallel,...

Re: Autom. advance spark timing

OK, that's helpful advices. Who teach me that the simple NuRex centrifugal ignition is the best conversion for automated advance ignition.

They hurt, the high additional costs. The freight...

Re: Autom. advance spark timing

Guten Abend Ursus.

Danke, that would be a nice option. I could purchase the B distributor shown below. There are probably a lot of A drivers here who have already done that like this, I hope. ...

Re: Valve clearance

Something basic about valve clearance:


The purpose of this air gap between the end of the valve stem and the drive mechanism is to ensure that a tiny air gap always remains under all...

Re: Autom. advance spark timing

Thanks, Colin, for your guiding help.

Changing the wiring is therefore not a problem. Good.

But after reading further here, another question arises:

Re: Autom. advance spark timing

Alexis,

thank you very well, that's important to know.
The pop off switch must remain installed. The cable change to an other doesn't matter.

But I do not know how. I have an electrical...

yes, this is a mechanically simple and beautiful system!

Re: Marvel inverse oiler

Servus Daniel,

what you write is correct in principle. But an 'inverse' oiler works the other way round, which is its patent.

The higher the vacuum, the lower the oil dosage. This is the only...

Marvel inverse oiler

Guten Abend,

I installed an Inverse Marvel Oiler over the winter. Unfortunately it doesn't work properly. He fizzles out a lot of MMO and that when idling and driving on.

Autom. advance spark timing

Guten Abend.

Is there a difference between Bratton's mechanical centrifugal ignition ($225) and Don Snyder's ($203)?
Does the device work very well?
What disadvantages are possible?

Many...

Re: Sun visors

Good Morning, Rotorwrench.

I didn't understand that correctly. Could you kindly explain that in a bit more detail, please?
