Decided to drop the pan on the cheap engine I picked up prior to installing into my coupe.
The fella I bought it from had no history on it.
Hope so. Looks like it will.
How about the pressure plate? I’m assuming it’s bolt on since it’s just rebuilt by Snyders, but does anyone have a...
Got a Clings adapter kit for cheap(ish) and bought a lightened flywheel/V8 pressure plate from Snyders.
I’ve had one before in a car I sold, but I...
Looks pretty mean the way it is.
They were on the car when I got it.
They aren’t high quality, so I assume they’re from one of the common model A suppliers.
One good thing about...
Mine is actually an SR-B.
I bought a few of them at the same time and eventually plan on selling the others. All matching and rebuilt.

A couple alternatives, just for conversation since I’m up early on a Saturday...
This is as low as I can get the idle without stalling.

Ok on the air gap, the bushing fit reasonably snug (can’t be pushed out by hand)
As far as the shackles, they’re difference diameters.
Not saying you guys aren’t right, I honestly don’t know, hence the question.
Makes sense to me though.. but there’s a difference when I flip it....
Original vs aftermarket shackles.
The originals, at least the pair I have on hand, seem to be a bit bigger than the after market set.
Got it. Had to flip it.
1st position was almost vertical.
Flipped it and it’s leaning back about an 1/8” bottom to top.
It wasn’t marked...
