The Jalopy Journal
I bought most of my internal parts from Reds Headers and H&H Flatheads. Rock auto sometimes has really cheap flathead parts too.
Great milestone getting it to a roller.
You're spring pack is close to what I have in my Coupe. I'd leave it like it is for now. Once the gas tank and battery are installed it will be a...
After rebuilding mine I used Macs 600W. Second gear syncro would always grind unless I shifted real slow. I changed to 140 and it got a little...
Thanks Man, I appreciate the kind comment.
Bought my long block and rolls of paper on Amazon.
[ATTACH] [ATTACH] I have what I believe to be a crank for a 57-58 Pontiac / GMC 347 V8. I will give it to anybody that needs it. The black color...
Ya man, get to welding and grinding on that body. Once you see progress there you'll be inspired to keep going and get this bad ass car on the...
That 34 is a beauty!
Well I'm not super sure on this, you'll have to do some research. Some guys take a Merc 4" crank and offset grind it so they get 4-1/8" stroke....
I have a set of 29A rods I'll trade you for your 8BA rods.
I like the Bronze and Black.
Take a look at my video, at 12:29 I explain the grooves in the shaft. In your pics it's hard to tell if there is more (damage) there than what is...
Great job so far Mat. I love the way Walden plans his chops. You are a smart guy following his examples. If I ever chop my Coupe, I'll be doing it...
Nice repairs. Perfect time to do all the metal work, it takes a lot of time and not much money :cool:
My thoughts are that if your motor isn't all gummed up with the old paraffin based oil, maybe it had some work done on it later in its life when...
Love this thread:)
The picture of the valley in the block looks amazingly clean. You might have gotten lucky on this one.
Score!!! on the grill shell.:cool::D
After clicking on the link, go to chopping a 32 3 window part 8. It starts there.
Walden has a great video of how they replaced the door skin on a 32. The video is on their website.
I wanted a period correct early 50s traditional hot rod, I think I kept it pretty dang close;)
I had a similar problem with the same symptoms as you have. I found my front carb inlet had a bunch of debris in it. The front carb bowl would run...
Since you said your plans were to put this motor into an AV8 Roadster, here is what I would do. I would be careful and remove the pistons and...
You have to pull it pretty hard. I only used super glue at the point where both ends of the seal meet.
Great job on the brackets.
I have this, but it's for a 29.
Post it on Yuotube, then link the video here.
Here is how I did mine.
