Re: Source .100 over Piston rings 255 engine

If you want 4 rings you will need to buy 2 sets
Or just run with three rings is what i was told by Rich at AER in Skokie Il.
The two bottom ones are the same

Re: Lightened Flywheel?

Stock flywheel is 63
I've got mine down to 37
What's a perfect weight? I guess that would depend on engine and what would work best for your application

Re: how to remove front hub inner bearing seal?

Probably really don't need to replace it
Just clean it all up and, you should be good seeing that its just something to keep the dust and dirt out of the bearing.

Re: Remove this bolt?

Heat it cherry red and spray with
penetrating oil let it cool down and then try and turn it out
Will almost come out with very little trouble

Re: clutchplate just fits the flywheel, or not ??

Flywheel probably gas been resurfaced a little to much
You could get ARP flywheel bolts and lock tight them

Re: Does 1929 Open Ford Roadster Windshield Latch?

Only if you leave the wing nuts loose at the top
Close the window and tighten the wing nuts and, the window will stay closed

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

50/50 mix is best
I personally would never run just water ,
With antifreeze it helps keep the rust from forming

Re: Timing Issue

hc head has nothing to do with timing!
and if you are running your timing in the retard position all the time, it will continue to overheat!!!!
