Re: What is a "reasonable" speed in a Model A for one to get "reasonable" engine life

I doubt it was because he forgot cotter pins. I don’t have pin in my rods. No little second lock nuts either. He forgot to torque them!

Re: New engine - intermittent backfiring - stuck valve?

Sounds like a start. Do they show jet orfice flowtesting criteria? With a zenith, I have had to open the high speed jet.

Re: Taillight bulbs

I was behind a car the other day that had red turn signals in the middle of the brake light assembly. With the brakes on and then the middle flashing, it took a second to realize what was happening....

Re: Carburetor backfire

It sounds lean to me. Have you opened up the GAV when it starts popping to see if it runs a little better? Be sure to let us know what the solution is.
Have you played with the timing recently?

Re: low & no spark on #3 cyl

Are you saying you checked the actual spark from the spark plug to ground, or are you saying you just shorted it out and it made no difference on number three. If it’s the latter, then it could be a...

Re: Cylinder head machining advice.

That stud hole may have rusted through into the water jacket, so you need a thread sealer like permatex. There’s not much you can do to the deck without a disassembly and machine shop. Usually the...

Re: Hard turning with new pistons

Set your rod bearings without the pistons in the block.
I would get some Prussian blue (Napa) and check your bearing surface to crank fit. 80% I think is acceptable. First mike your crank. I’ve...

Re: Motor question.

If this motor runs very well, that means it’s been run. If there is no dipper tray, then it should’ve burned up. I wonder if you have a pressurized oil system. If you were to pull the oil...

Re: Lack of power/rpm

Running retarded because of low compression doesn’t make sense. You need the spark at the correct time. Running retarded will cause the symptoms you describe.
