Re: B Distributor Initial Timing

This may be off topic, but how do I set up a Mallory distributor? The timing cover appears to be the same as an A cover and the Mallory advance appears to be the same as a B distributor. The...

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

But a frame is replaceable, so now where is the title?

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

Both buyers bought a pile of parts which I don't believe either pile will have a title, at the end of the day piles of parts aren't titled. MHO

Re: Distributor question

I am confused as to what problem I had or have. The car wouldn't start - kicked back like it was advanced although it was starting fine. I took the dist. cap off and could move the rotor back and...

Re: Model A Distributor with Centrifugal Advance

This is a straight away drop in, however, Mallory has been bought out several times and the 4 cylinder distributor parts are extremely hard to find.

Re: Distributor question

Got it now. The link answered my question. With out taking the distributor apart it appears that the shaft is solid between the drive and the cam. Thanks.

Re: New pitman arm too loose

Bert's people are extremely knowledgeable (especially Steve) so I am really surprised to see this. I will call Steve next week and find out. Mac's cat. says forged. Need a blue print answer.

Re: New pitman arm too loose

So, did the vender say it was forged? If so that would give peace of mind that really torqueing the bolt won't hurt the arm or set it up for a future stress crack.

Re: New pitman arm too loose

This is something that needs to be verified to see if it is forged. I read somewhere that the model A has over 150 forgings. If it is forged lay into it with the vice, it won't break.

Re: TDC Finder

Can't see how this "snake oil" device is any better than the time and proven method of dropping the pin in the hole. Thumb over the spark plug hole gets close enough to locate the dimple, as I said...

Re: Frame welting application

I use a screwdriver with no blade and tapered a little. With the webbing glued in place heat with a MAP torch and it will melt a nice round hole.

Re: rebabbiting

I think the issue is being resolved. Appears that there is a shipping problem. I have located the rod at a post office in John's zip code and don't expect problems getting it on track to John.

Re: Securing the exhaust better

What ever means the rear clamp/support is used it is important that tail pipe fore and aft expansion and contraction be taken into consideration.

Re: Do YOU single-clutch ?

This works the best for me, I would like to add that these little engines have so much low RPM torque I start out in 2nd gear when on the flat, down hill and even slight uphill - It will go.

Re: Tremec T170 Transmission Troubles (this issue may be a puzzle)

It appears to me that you are looking at a complete overhaul. A lot of damaged and/or missing teeth - it will not get better, only worse and more expensive if used in this condition.
