Re: Just Another V12

If that is a Continental, it will be 1790 ci (5.75 x 5.75). When in the Army, as a mechanic, I went to track vehicle school at Ft Benning, GA. The ones I worked on were in the M60 tanks and were all...

Re: What's up with Fastenal Blue Line freight?

I don't know what happened to Fastenal. A year and a half ago, they would ship anything, anywhere and would ship to and from my area. But, 3 months ago, I sold a Zephyr OD trans, to a guy in San...

Re: 1949 Ford State Police car

In '57, the largest engine in Merc's and Linc's was the 368 Y block. The 430 didn't come out, until '58. It was called a MEL (Merc, Edsel, Linc). I had the 410 version, in my '58 Edsel Corsair.

Re: Pop-up Adds at Bottom of Screen

Ryan, I would like to add my thanks for removing the adds.

I very much appreciate how you think and what motivates you.

It's a truly great site and I access it, all most every day.

Re: Pop-up Adds at Bottom of Screen

I agree with everyone else. They are very annoying! They would be much easier to put up with if, they didn't "flash" like they do.

Re: Winfield su1a

I think the R1 would be more streetable. I would call it more like a 3/4 race cam. Compare it to the Harmon-Collins 3/4 race cam.

Re: Winfield su1a

The Ex numbers @ .050 don't add up I think the 1 should be -1:
18/58 @ .020 = 256* 110 LC
53/13 @ .020 = 246* 110 LC

3/43 @ .050 = 226* 110 LC
39/1 @ .050 = 220* 109 LC

39/-1 @ .050 = 218*...

Re: Winfield su1a

This might help and it lists another Isky carded SU1A but, the timing for the lobes is reversed on it.

It will give you a idea of where the cam lays, compared to other race cams.

Re: Winfield su1a

It will be lumpy, for sure, as it has a lot of overlap. I think it will want at least another carburetor, to get the best of it and better valve springs, of course.

Re: Stromberg carbs

In your case, you should be able to run 2, with the other 2 on a progressive linkage.

Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

Yes, you need to tap at about 1/2 the drilling speed, that goes for the C'sinking, too.


As a machinist, this is how it always goes for me.


This doesn't work with a tapping head, if your...

Re: 1936 dual carbs/ triple carbs

Re: 1936 dual carbs/ triple carbs

The Offy, regular spaced (narrow) manifold, makes the most since. The forward carb is very close to center and you can run a progressive linkage to the rear carb. You can also run the generator in...

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

I have a question on this:

Has anyone rebored the mains for the 2.500 main bearings? Is there any problems in doing that?
