Re: electric fuel pum and tank installation

I have a 16 gallon foam filled race fuel cell under the back of my "A" with the pump mounted on the frame rail alongside. The car has a luggage rack with a box trunk on it so the tank is almost...

Re: Used cam value?

The journals can be sleeved back to standard but it does not become cost effective at
$200 each until the supply runs out.

Re: Adjusting the F-100 Steering box

There are 2 adjustments that can be done without machine work. The end play in the upper shaft is more critical than most people realize. This is the shaft the worm is attached to.

Re: Ardun Engine

That must be Rick's grocery getter. Wet sump with carbs.
His race car engine is supposed to be making over 800hp and it is a FLATHEAD.

Re: Edelbrock manifold

It very well could if you put a 150 nitrous shot on it.

Re: Flathead Cam help ID

The problem with used cams even if you are able to identify the numbers, it could have been reground to something else.
The only way to know for sure what it is, is to degree it in the engine it...

Re: Edelbrock Slingshot

Yes, a couple of "big" 97's might make a difference but they are costly compared to slightly scarce 48's.
On a small street engine, go cheap.

Remember, you are monkeying with miniscule hp so BIG...

Re: Edelbrock Slingshot

I don't think you will notice much difference between any of them for street use. A definite difference between 2 and 3 carbs though.

Re: Edelbrock Slingshot

They have a larger venturi so they flow more so they make more hp when you need it. They will not hurt mileage at street driving speeds. They look identical to 97's.

Re: Edelbrock Slingshot

A vintage Edelbrock Super will work much better than a "slingshot".
More power, more mileage, more "cool" factor.
Use 48's, NOT 97's.

Re: 60hp v8 - model A

A good V8 60 will turn over 7000 and make at least 150 hp. You might have
to run E85 nowdays to do it though.

Rich knew how to do it.

Re: Setting 8ba valve lash by grinding valve stems

You have a simple but good setup for adjusting your valves.
In the end this system will be FAR superior to adjustable lifters.

Re: Proper procedure for re-torqueing head studs

There is so much misinformation and plain LACK of information in that post, I am going to let someone else handle it.

Re: Proper procedure for re-torqueing head studs

Just as a side note, hypoid gear lube is a "unipolar type lube". Several other lubes for other automotive use are of this type.
Basically what it means once you apply it to a HARD bearing surface,...
