Oh sorry for causing you to spend more money..!
The other motor turned out ok, it was just tight with solidified oil so that was nice
Propper nice is that crank!
How did that engine work out for you?

Hats off for taking a T block that far.
For me, the 3k limit was always to help protect the Babbitt not the limiting factor of the lubrication but...

Postage extra but won’t cost much
He always intrigued me. Never knew him or spoke with him. His knowledge and experience was a real surprise. Enough there for a pretty interesting...
do you have a photo of the steering wheel?
I’ve emailed you in the past with no reply. Kind of figured you didn’t exist??
This may turn out to be a dumb question I'm far from familiar with these carbs.
Is this an original 81 from a V8-60?
Were there any later repros...
What a find. Was it cheap? Or affordable..?
Had this photo for years. Seems sensible to share it now.
Wondering how much these would cost...
‘28s have tin covers over the pushrods and cast edges in the block. 26 or 27 this one.
Available for pre order?..
Santa dropped things off early to me. Oldsmobile 3 port.
Mac. I may have south west England cornered.
Still on the 3 port thing.
Can someone talk about the drilling from the centre exhaust port through...
Sometimes you can have too much choice
Nice find. Model A original fitment?
I may chase Rich’s Pinto OHC idea. I have a surplus of heads to play with
The head cost essentially nothing...
Pre ‘28 Chevy Block
So you think that can could be adapted for the chev/olds head? With a bit of cut and shut for the valve spacing?
Rich. Do you mean this Pinto engine? (I’m not familiar with the US Pinto)
The Brillman company does lots of plug adapters. I had some chev 4 to 14mm from them. Great service
Are you using an A or T steering arm into the spindle?
T truck frame is longer than car. Same width which is probably the important bit.
Loving your work here.
I’m looking forward to the rad modification.
Have you got an exhaust manifold for that head?
You mean the M40? I'm working on (with more than a little help from a Hamber) fitting an A torque tube to the back of on.
Great boxes. Look old...
If I use the M40 then I would be content with no OD but keep the torque tube. That's a must. I'm currently working on a housing to mount the...
One big reason for running the ruckstell is wheel brakes. Left with only the trans brake and fiddling to find one of 138 gears could cause...
Rotating front piece Six Ball? The bell you mean? It's fixed on mine
Mac, your running a Chicago behind the chev?
I still don't fully understand...
Six Ball. You got it in one! Well found.
Burkedore. I'm not sure we could find any pre-war box that ran smooth...
I am keen on this idea of...
