    60 HP at the wheels. Will post details and a video later. This is a Zipper with '31 Model A running gear. Engine was built 25 years ago with inserts. Over the years I've added headers, FS ignition, a B-F super head and a '39 transmission. Switched from a pair of English 97's to a single 97.

    Hope you all can help me . Took my Pickup out for a test run. It over heated pushing the water out the over flow. Let it cool down and add coolant 50/50 mix , restarted it and notice no water flow just a raise in the tank of the coolant and the stock water pump stated to leak . Qusestion is should I replace with a stock A pump or something else.
    Engine has 6:1 alu. head ,twin 81s, headers, 60 over with balance crank and 36 lb flywheel, Jim B R1 cam . Tank was just gone thru at rad. shop

    new leakless pump & recore the radiator .......
     
  10. If you over fill the radiator it will push the excess water out of the overflow tube. Rebuild the pump with a leakless kit or replace pump with same leakless feature. Flush the radiator out checking the flow. Which tank was just gone through? You didn't say but was the pump leaking before?

    thanks for the help!
    The Radiator was gone thru , but I will check the ticket. I was wanting to stave with the Model A pump so a new one will be ordered , I was reading on the V8 pumps but the cost is up there to make the change.
    The radiator did not over flow the first test run only after I finished putting the front fenders and doors on and drove it a longer test run.

    Thanks again

    You will need a fuel pump AND a fuel pressure regulator ...a good one that works properly... not one of the cheesy cheap ones. If you have a B motor you can use the original block mounted manual pump, if not you need a low pressure electric pump. Stromberg 97s only use around 2.5 to 3 psi., (3.5 maximum ) . Any more pressure and you will have trouble with mixture control.

    Also put a good filter between tank and pump most modern push pumps dont like rubbish.

    Dyno results...
    I missed this year but the Speedster Trials and Reunion at Speedway Motors, Lincoln, Nebraska they have a driving tour, hill climb and you can run your car to a frame dyno as part of the activities. I believe this is where the numbers are coming from any 4 cyl powered car is welcome as long as it is pre '35
    I'm not missing it again

    Dyno Runs were performed at "The Shop" in Lincoln during the Speedway Motors Speedster Trials and Renion. The Museum of Speed (part of Speedway Motors) hosts the event in June on odd numbered years. An mentioned above, it includes: a Road Tour of about 200 miles, Hill Climb using F.A.S.T. Rules, and Dyno Runs. You also have a lot of free time to visit the museum. Group picture outside the museum. image.jpg

    I have similar Scintilla mag also. Too bad it died 2years ago. I really liked look of mag and it worked well before it died.
    It has self advance and was used previously in water pump. Now i'm running FSI.

    Does anybody knows where you can get new coil to Scintilla?
     
  26. Joe Hunt coils might work?
