  5. Wow March already!
    Anyway question for you all, I have a Miller OHV in my 28 roadster, it needs a new radiator.
    I'm thinking of two options, Berts Model A does a high perf unit that is made from record originals, or a brasscraft one? (Brasscraft also does one that is pressurised that wont be seen under the hood)
    Given I'm at 5,500 feet and water already boils at a lower temp and I don't want an electric fan - what radiator do you suggest?

    It's in a 40's style rod with everything older than 48 (apart from tyres and new brake cylinders LOL!)
    Thanks
    David

    Are you running a pressurized cooling system?

    If not, I would make sure that whichever radiator you get will hold 6-7 psi.

    Mr Crazydaddyo,

    Is that the rear main in your pic? Do you know what might have caused it?

    My dad is Mr. Crazydaddyo, you can call me Crazy. :rolleyes: :D

    Yes, that is the rear main.

    Cause:
    Overindulgence. Too many RPM. Questionable crank mods. I mainly think the cross drilling of the crank to get oil to the #4 rod was done wrong and with too big of a drill.

    Thanks for the Crazy reply:cool:

    What should the proper/correct size hole be? If that size were to be, say 5/16ths, then going slightly under size, say 1/4" be safer and still provide enough volume of oil for the job? Note, i'm just using those numbers for discussion.

    I'd have to check again, but I think that one was @ 1/4" or 9/32". 3/16" would be the biggest and 1/8" would be the smallest i would go. Volume isn't that big of an issue here. Pressure is.

    Funny, thats usually what causes that in overheads too. Small world.:D
     
  19. Not yet, it just has an old recored original. Hence thinking about going to a pressurized one.
     
  20. I went strange as far as banger... 54 lotus/ford four cylinder... Looks cool

    I like your thinking and before anyone says its not trad it is and the later twin cam versions even more so they were used in race cars but now parts are expensive and hard to get your hands on great little engines will look great all polished up in a light tee bet it will be fun too.

    I'm new to the older stuff. Any way to convert or change a 29 Banjo rear to posi or limited slip? Anything that is a "bolt-in" posi from that era?

    My banger is about 90hp so I don't think excess HP will be an issue.

    Thanks!

    Quick change rear ends still use the stock axels and ring and pinion. Still doesn't have posi or limited slip. I'm running a V-8 banjo quick change with a locker diff. I don't know of any set up for the A banjo

    This is where I got it:

    I posted this over on the ford barn but thought I'd throw it up here and see if anyone has any ideas...
    I have a model B engine which I bought as a core to be rebuilt. It is a diamond block that has been re-sleeved back to standard bore and has bronze (or possibly copper) cam bearing inserts. It has not been magnafluxed or pressure tested or even cleaned yet. It has what looks very much like a crack running up from the water inlet boss. Because it is otherwise such a good candidate for re-build I thought I'd repair this crack by stop drilling the end of it, veeing it out and brazing it. Does anyone have any experience with this type of problem and could offer advice on fixing it?

  30. Do you guys feel that a hand fuel pump pressurizing the stock tank is a viable alternative to a B fuel pump when running downdraft carbs?
