The Jalopy Journal
I’ve ran a few sets of 416 and 601 with no cracks. The earlier ones like your alternate I’ve had crack, posted a thread on it last year.
I’ve seen that happen but it takes custom pistons- pretty sure anyway
anyone build one?
wondering why ?
How might it run?
Well There’s one sitting here now.
I’ll probably open it up later this week to see what...
I got a set of 6 pistons and pins.
Brand new in a Jahns box, packed in January 1955 news paper. kinda neat
I can’t make out any numbers on...
That was my thinking too. they look like they are way too tight
What’s the chances your cam is retarded in that crate engine? 50/50 chance or more.
The low gears in the 200r4 at 2.74 with 3.73 rear gear...
Just 0.030 over
#3 valves posted a pic above
I don’t see anything that looks problematic or out of sorts with combustion or timing. Valves all look good too except #8 intake has some debris...

So guys, help me out here.
How many different scenarios can explain debris on top of the 1/2 pistons with intact cylinder walls and debris in...
Run the non ethanol fuel.
Hot engine with shit for fuel, a successful start after 5 seconds isn’t bad.
As to your other remarks that this didn’t...
Not one grinder mark

I’ve got a really super neat front axle I would love to use. I believe it’s not going to be strong enough though.
Anyone have the computer...
Aged hardner/activators opened or not can cause issues.
Wish I had some spare time to figure out a pressure pot for small sprays like engine...
Oh there’s no way in hell you’re going to take a blower off an old diesel bus and go drag racing. It’ll never work right
I’m that GM example
They purposefully needed a center bearing
The engine/trans and center bearings become motionless and irrelevant.
Hey hey hey now.
Yes it’s a good show/time
The CEnter Line of trans out put shaft usually winds up really close to the top of the frame on the 35-40 frames.
It’s hard to tell because...
