Re: Removing the cam on a Model A

The problem I'm seeing is what's going to hold the lifter in place when the cam is removed
Lifters will drop into the oil pan

Re: Removing the cam on a Model A

Just reread your question
You might be able to go thru the plug hole and with the right bent up screw driver hold the valve up

Re: Removing the cam on a Model A

Air pressure holds the valves closed so u can install the spring and keepers one cly at a time or remove

Re: Removing the cam on a Model A

Put about 60 lbs of air in the cylinders so the valves stay closed you might be able to do it
Done that a time or two on sbc to change valve springs

Re: Wheel Washers

If what is sticking out is all threads, i think i would cut them off to the right length and do away with all the washers

Re: Unhappy with pressurised radiator

Let it find its own level once and see what happens
Is it actually overheating or just puking coolant out every time because u are filling rad to the top?????

Re: Should I be worried about any of these noises?

Almost sounds like a very bad vacuum leak
Replace exhaust intake gaskets and try it again

Re: Rear main bearing cap oil return line question

Re: Does the weber down draft not fit under a stock 28-29 hood?

With the rectangular air cleaner mine would hit the side of my hood, i found a round one that fits the webber carb, problem solved
Can't remember where I found it
Maybe speedway motors
