I took on a 1930 Model A coupe to get running for a friend of mine. Long story short it turned into a major overhaul of the engine. The cylinders are scratched and grooved vertically so bad it blew oil out the oil fill pipe even with the lid ON! Tore it down and of course it just kept getting worse. pulled the crank out and found the rear main bearing(babbitt) was sitting in place but material was in pieces. Hard to get a decent babbitt job in this state so am wondering if any of you Hambers have an experiance with the insert bearing kits Snyder's sells for the Model A ?? I think the inserts will be a better deal when completed anyhow. I need to know what is involved and what kind of money was spent doing the machine work. Does anyone have a set of instructions that could be posted on here? Thanks for any help, and yes, I DID try to talk him into putting a v8 flathead in it. No can do!
