    When I blew a head gasket in my banger, it sounded like a little man inside with a big hammer. I pulled the head off to remove the hammer from the Lil fella only to find a blown gasket.... it was between #1 +2.

    Posted using the Full Custom H.A.M.B. App!
     
  2. i was also thinking condensation.. but there is antifreeze blowing out from the sparkplugs aswell(bad sparkplugg gaskets) but the engine is also blowing water from the radiator.. i will find out next week tho! :) hehe
     
  3. so you did not find the litle guy? :( hehe..
     
  4. well, the gasket looked okey, but no harm in changing it :)

    HaHa OK Kjell owne up to it , you didn't have a head gasket problem, you wanted a excuse to put a bigger cam in it:D
     
  6. hehe ;) well, the cam is still not in the block tho.. and the motor is back togheter.. so not yet :p but i would get me an extra block before i tear the one in the car apart :) hehe

    Its lookin great! How'd you go worth timing mag? I don't know much about the one you have, does it advance? Or is it fixed? What type? Los of questions :confused::D

    Sent via carrier pidgeon & smoke signals with the HAMB App
     
  9. it should be automatic/fixed to serten RPM's dont remember the specs now, but its 13degree at 1945rpm or somthing like that :) 5degree at 850rpm

    its a vertex magneto, similar to the Joe Hunt magnetos :) i did have it running for like 10 secunds here a few days ago, but i think i have some big carb problems...
