Re: cylinder bore spacing

Great. Thanks Wayno.
I pulled the trigger and ordered a complete Zephyr gasket set so I'm covered for the V12.

cylinder bore spacing

I've spent hours searching for cylinder bore spacing and find nothing.

I know the spacing for the Flathead v8, but not the Lincoln Zeyphr and the V8 60.

I'm needing these dimensions to make my...

Re: 1953f100 fuel injection

Ross, I may be the guy you're thinking of when mentioning 268" engine in a '32 coupe, but I never ran a quarter mile in the twelves, best time was 13.3 something seconds. My injection system is in...

Re: making a flathead have greater than 1:1 valve ratio??

I've played with a hydraulic valve lifter design that I call a jack lifter. In theory small plungers (3 or four) surrounding a central one hit a positive stop causing the contained oil in the lifter...

Re: stock rebuilt

How many miles on the odometer?? How much of a ridge in the cylinders? Are valve seats pitted? Are valve stems worn? Was it recently running?

You mention a "budget" and "stock rebuild". You...

Re: piston pin offset

Crank is offset for mechanical advantage, I think, while piston pin offset may or may not be depending what the engineers intended. Modern engineers "see" things a little differently it seems to me,...

Re: 53 flathead horsepower

Actually it's the torque numbers within your driving rpm range that matters most, IMHO.

Horsepower numbers tend to be used in sales hype advertising and the advertised number is probably seldom...

Re: piston pin offset

Google it.

Mostly pin offset is done to reduce side loading of the piston on the power stroke, as I understand it, and the old time intent seems to have been to reduce piston scuffing. Like many...

Re: Acorn nuts for cylinder heads

Real acorn nuts don't weep coolant when you have studs. I heard somewhere that some Model A's had them from the factory.

Re: Scale engine project

Never had one of those, but assume it is pretty much a generic overhead valve engine. Mine will be an accurate representation of a Ford 59A engine. Haven't modelled the carb, fuel pump and crab...
