I've always had good service at Speedway. Their tech people have always been very helpful. What they have got is what you are going to get. In...
Looks like a great start. Glad you are here.
I don't know how you leave a block high in the center but there is a lot I don't know. I do know that a flathead camshaft is not in the center...
I think you should be referring to picture 4. second picture in row 2. the camfer should go outside against the crankshaft radii. Smooth to the...
Bore notching a sbc should be avoided.
Hard to tell by looking at photos but your original photos looked pretty good to me.
I haven't seen anything official but judging from the past 8/17 would be my guess.
What ever someone will give or take. I'd be comfortable around $300,but I'm a little conservative.
I've had a moustache for 30 years that I'd like to keep. Looks like your rig should work. I'm I thinking correctly?
Remove the foam. Have seen lots of problems if it is left in.
If you blow that crap out in the yard you kick it up every time you mow. They do a heck of a job but I sure wouldn't want to be around one or own...
Very sorry for your loss.
I think there is a lesson there for all of us.
AHRA spotted you one length for each difference in class in Stock Eliminator. I believe it was 15 feet but that was a long time ago.
I agree with you on the additive. I use diesel oil and add half a bottle of comp cam's additive at each oil change.
You would have to blueprint the engine to get near the advertised compression level. I'd avoid amsoil. A quart every 2k is great.
I like it. Give us some details.
I used a spreader on top and their 6000 lb strap below.
I like the pinion snubber idea. Might be able to sell that one. He's taking care of the body and suspension. I'm doing the engine and...
CalTracs were my thought from the start. Partner wants to stay more traditional.
Building a 1956 bracket car with a partner. He is bound and determined that we should run leaf springs with ladder bars. Will sliders like those...
On my drag race engines I don't see all that much rotation. Granted they don't go many miles between teardowns. Leakage is loss of HP.
When you heard his music you knew it was him. As I remember the story he hung out with the Fender people and played the first or one of the first...
Tear it down.
hone the cylinders.
Put it back together.
I'm a big believer in electric fuel pumps on a flathead. I think if you are on the down hill, you will be fine.
Wouldn't be without mine on my 50...
rebuild the c4, get a set of steelies and your in good shape.
Three things from my flathead experience:
You need better ignition.
You need an electric fuel pump.
Proper quench makes a big difference.
It seems like in my high school days there was one in the area with a 55 or 56 pickup front axle.
