Happy new year for all banger guys!
anyone have a drawing of the bolt pattern on a v8 clutch
i think its a 9" pressure plate
Last winter I think there was one or two posted. Next time it comes around I will save it to my photo bucket
It was last Feb. when I ask last year.
A guy on the hamb Emailed me a print But it is lost in my old broken lap top
i have the flywheel all ready to go and realized i didn't have the drawing. i guess if worse comes to worse i could trig it out.....lol and they said i would never need that after school...lol

It is about time DaddyO....
happy new year
and thanks for posting the links even if its on the 2nd page
Sorry for the late post.
I've been out of town and drunk for 5 days.....I think.
If you drank more than five days you'd drop the glass counting Unless you were shoeless......
That's why I had to drink out of the glass in the other hand......
As I thought ....... If you sat the glass down to count...... You'd loose the glass
It's a good sign that you didn't count some fingers more than once.
Happy new year everyone.....I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of the combustion chamber and valve terrain of an Adurn OHV conversion for a Model A/B. I did a search for it but didn't find much info. Thanks
I have such an engine from H&H. It is not high rev style. I feel you could have more power with either Cragar or Miller and probably better quality too. Anyway this pulls smoothly with broad useful torque range.
The ports are small with tight turns. Combustion chambers are shallow round shape with valves in cup like pockets all in straight line. Handmade aluminum rocker arm tips and shaft worn out rapidly and I have to make new of harder materials.
I have two 97's on log intake and homemade short small tube header on it. American Bosch magneto on side. Way too much slack causes ignition variation. Some kind of DIS ignition would be better but not as cool.
