Re: Offenhauser/Edelbrock heads 59AB

I have a nice set of early 49 Offy heads with the angle thermostat housing and the correct housings. Wonder what they're worth. Most guys have never seen a set before.

Re: Eddie Meyer or Offenhauser?

This is a problem of aesthetics'. The 2GC would be a better option.

Re: L-100 & 9" clutch

Back in 87, I was working in a body shop fixing rusty Vermont cars, when a fellow came in as asked if anyone could build a flathead. I raised my hand, and thus started a new life.

Re: Whats up with this bearing?

That's called "Flaking" and was common with WWII bearings. This was also caused by excessive oil pressure. Had problems with the early floaters, back in the day.. Good reason for running a full flow...

Re: Chevy to Flathead distributor

The issue here is the longevity of the ring job, A cheap Egge piston & rings might last 20k miles more. Remember, this is a "street engine" I know there are better pistons available for this...

Re: Chevy to Flathead distributor

I assume this is a "street engine". I question the use of Ross pistons and 1.6 valves. The Ross pistons require larger clearances and a 1.6 valve would only be beneficial at high RPM. Nothing wrong...
