Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

I no longer believe there is any valve timeing issue. Why would you suggest it in lieu of the overall story? Im open...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

No I have not. I only have the manifold single ports vacuum sources, not a central vacuum. The timeing is so off, I not sure that would be worthwhile. When I get the timeing issue resolved, I'll do...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Kurt, no that was not done. The reason being, the cam in question was run in my '40 for a period of time several years ago with no problems.

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

I agree. I have taken the distributor out and tightened up the advance springs, hoping that will retard the baseline timeing. Have yet to test. Not wanting to heat up the garage today. Expecting...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Yes, the timeing marks were developed before I put the heads back on. I first located the location I wanted my marks for easy viewing. I then found TDC using a dial indicator. I then made my pully...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

There was no TDC mark except the one I created with heads off and a dial indicator. This is a 41 block with the factory correct pulley and crank mounted fan. I did use an 8BA crank.

Terry, would...

Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

The current status of my miserable running V8.

I decided to start from scratch on this motor. I pulled every piston rod assembly, and inspected for any broken rings. No broken rings. I had a set,...

Re: 8BA fuel pump pushrod diameter

.060" deflection at the top of the rod is insignificant. In my opinion, unless the rod itself showed unusual side wear on the shaft I would not be concerned.

Re: Rear Spring Installation

Did you change or remove the top spring leaf?

Re: Hard turning with new pistons

Was the crank turned prior to assembly, or was the crank already done prior to your build? If done before you, did they check the crank for straight?

Re: Question on cam gear marks

Hi Brian, the engine is partially torn down for visual inspection. I'm considering pulling the heads so i can check the rings for broken. When putting some of the pistons in, i had a problem with the...

Re: Mixing lifters

If all lifters were properly set it would be fine.

Re: PCV valve good idea?

That's an interesting question. I'm curious also. Awaiting some answers on this, although I doubt much rear main leaks are from crankcase pressure.....but maybe??

Re: Cleaning Silvered Plated Lamp Reflectors

Post 18 for the lamp-black. I think you can make your own by lighting an acetylene torch and not giving the flame any oxygen. You let it build up on the reflector surface and with a soft cloth polish...

Re: Question on cam gear marks

I confirmed the cam is ok because I have run it before in another motor.

Compared to another, the cam gear is properly marked.

No Terry, there is no coil bind. There would be I bet, if I was using rotators.

Re: Engine Expert Opinions Needed

Yes, I'm using the passenger front cylinder as #1. My crank gear was so lightly marked it could be easily missed. It does fullfill the rule 3rd gear tooth clockwise from the keyway of the gear.
