Re: Oil gallery plug

I believe the plug with the relief, is downstream from the spring metered valve, serving the duel purpose of terminating the valley tube as well as allowing the metered flow path.

Re: Replacing a loose valve seat

As far as the India-made cutter, there is a portable valve seat machine manufactured by Neway that will dress valve seats. The two or three issues I have personally seen with these...

Re: '29 CC PU assembly confusion

Sounds like the problem is that your frame is a '30. Find someone who has an accessible late 28 or a 29 frame for the cab mount hole locations. Or maybe a 29 frame print.

Re: What am I missing? 1930 Model A

If the plugs are dry, your not getting fuel.

Re: Fuel line flare

Who would have guessed such a simple task could require over 40 posts. If you must use a joint sealer, google "Gasoila E-Seal". Specifically for E10 and E85 fuels.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

I appreciate the lesson in cam checking, but as the process has unfolded, I don't understand why more attention wasn't paid to the fact this cam ran fine in an earlier installation. It simply came...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

The gear came from a stash of apparently used V8 parts I bought over 10 years ago.

The cam came from a motor I ran in my '40 years ago.

Re: Snyder 5.5 head

I would think the early patterns have paid for themselves many times over. It would be good PR if Snyder felt they owed the community a product enhancement. They are advertised as "original...

Re: Snyder 5.5 head

Ditto to what Dave said. My 6:1 head has the same problem. I don't know why Tod has not corrected that. Functionally it's great, and really peps up a stock motor.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Is the opinion the duration is 248 vs 260 due to the .014" lash? It seems logical to me. In any case, is the deviation from 260 durationan issue responsible for the extreme static advance I see at...

Re: installing a front crossmember

I'd like to add the importance of the 6 rivets on the top of the frame. They must be low profile, or you will have a interference issue with the front fenders.

Re: Cam Degree wheel setup for V8 flathead

Re: Cam Degree wheel setup for V8 flathead

Kurt, the only one I could find at Speedway that fit a flathead was the Offenhauser one that had the crank hub part of the wheel. Flathead crank is about 1.310" What did you find?

Cam Degree wheel setup for V8 flathead

I've been shopping for a degree wheel to check my cam, but have not seen anything size wise to fit either the crankshaft, or the '40 fan bolt pattern. Any recommendations?
