Re: L-100 cam in a 221

L-100 cam in a 221

I've been forced to rethink the motor I've been building and will start over with a 36LB block with maybe .030 overbore and stock stroke. I'll be using stock 36 aluminum heads. I plan to optimize the...

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

I found 2 pairs of -.030 +.015 inserts for the front and center mains at Red's Vintage auto parts, thanks to Red Hamilton and Marilyn. I'm running out of folks to ask, the few who understand what I'm...

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

Not so far, that's why started this thread. I'm still hoping to find them, other wise I'm starting over with another block or modifying this one. If I have to modify it, I may as well make it...

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

L-head - at .015 over you'd have to move the bore centers way too far up into the block to be useful afterward.


Brian, how much narrower are the later center mains? Milling that to size seems...

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

+1 I was just looking at that this evening, there appears to be room for the larger diameter between the studs. Has anyone done this?

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

Thanks very much for that Brian. Looks like neither length is correct here. The length issues I can deal with, we have ways to machine it and I can even handscrape if necessary. Putting material on...

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

I see. He wasn't specific, just said Ford didn't make them. I asked for other sizes, got no answer so I took that as no rear bearings of any size made.

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

I asked him, he doesn't have them. That's who told me there were no rear mains made for this.

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

Just finished that with this block. Disassemble, clean, mag, derust, pressure test, etc 5X. I keep finding new ways to find problems.
Where are those new blocks Tod?

Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

The very last check I made before taking my oh so carefully cleaned tested and prepared 37 block to be bored was to bore gage the mains to be sure I had the correct main caps installed. In the...

Re: 36 Ford Pickup...

What is the difference between 36 and 35 brackets? I'd like to be able to put 5X5-1/2 wheels on my 36 and carry a useable spare, what's the best way to switch back and forth?

Re: helmet distributor

I'm waiting to hear reports on the Mallory distributor for 3 bolt engines and I don't think I've seen one here yet. Has anyone here used one?

Re: Big Claude Hoppers- Size 12

Your feet do grow. I used to wear 13s now it's 14s. I fit terribly in old cars. And yes people are bigger now.

Re: I found a crack in an odd place while pressure testing

Poking around a little more through the lower pump hole, the crack ends real close to the wall of the exhaust port, so close that a drilled hole at the end of the crack might hit the outside of the...

Re: I found a crack in an odd place while pressure testing

Which Devcon? There are quite a few.


If this was a running vehicle, I'd wipe it off and apply a glob of PC-7, which is about the same as JB weld but thicker, and drive on. Since this is a fresh...

Re: Question about a "Helmet" distributor

Does 6V vs 12V make a difference in the condenser needed?

The crack is between the forward exhaust port and the water pump mount on the passenger side of a 37 block on the outside of the block.

The opposite bank seems tight, it has been holding 25 lbs...
