Hey Guys, Squirrels Old Skool Valve job thread fired me up a bit...lol I have a 1955 Dodge Fargo truck. It has a very tired 228 long flathead 6 with dual carbs and exhaust, T 98 Acme 4 spd trans and a Mopar 8 1/4 3.23 diff. This engine is okd and tired and never been open. Compression 85- 90 across, wet or dry no difference , cyl leak down test most leaking big time. I only hear air rushing out the oil cap not out carbs or tailpipes. Vacuum is steady 17 but had to advance timing to get there. I have a 265 combine flathead 6 but if needs at least rings, honing and valve lapping. It has a slight cyl ridge too but quite clean. I also have a 225 slant 6 supposedly low miler was running in carbtil fall of 2017. Dirty inside rockers and oil pan I cleaned it up cyls have nice cross hatching and by hand it feels good on compression. I have a rebuilt A833 overdrive and bell for this engine. Swapping it in is not too complicated but things like the clutch pedal linkage might be. It has no performance parts. So thats my choices right now have not 100% decided on my direction yet. Here are a number of You tube vids on this.
