Re: Trouble shoot 1950 8Ba initial start up Help

If youíre using repro condenser and points they are junk. I had problems on initial start up because of weak spark. Bought NORS condenser and point and it started right up.

Re: Cast iron 2 groove wide belt crank pulley

Re: Two 8ba Engine Noise Questions?

Re: 8BA noisy valve update

Thanks for the video, you are a talented guy, for sure.
Doesn’t sound like my knock is a head clearance problem after reviewing your info and the audio of your knock.
