I heard some sad news this morning. Fellow Banger HAMBER "Just plain Bill" has passed on.
I have no way to verify it, but it comes from a reliable source.
God Speed Bill!!!!!!!!
What a source of knowledge - condolences
As some here know I call from time to time just to chat and catch-up.
Bill was one of those guys. I'm very happy to remember him the way we were AND the information and greetings we exchanged on the phone. Good night Bill
I can now confirm that Bill passed 11-5-2017.
He will be missed. Another wealth of knowledge is gone.
Well said Jim.
Banger Speed Bill,
Very sad. Bill was a very nice and knowledgeable guy. RIP
Great guy always shared his secrets godspeed.
Bill's knowledge of Winfields was most welcomed by this newcomer. He will be missed. RIP
Yes Bill sent me on the right path with my Winfields with a few short messages still not sorted but due to other problems
going to miss the whiner from the recliner

Dang, that's bad news. Condolences and prayers for his family. His posts were always on my must read list
Bosbill...always had time and knowledge to share over many years that I knew him. Shocking news, indeed. Never know when your time is up. Condolences to the family.
A loss of a very valuable fellow...R.I.P., Bill..You
WILL be missed!
Sad news Condolences to the family
the world is a little poorer without Bill
Well a first for me...
I have a B engine that drops a cylinder from time to time and I've been chasing that. I finally pulled the intake/exhaust manifolds and side cover to see what I could see after ruling out carburation, ignition, etc. that and I'd get where I could hear a loud ticking noise when it dropped the cylinder The exhaust valve is hung in the guide right before it closes. The guide is moving up and down in the block freely enough that gravity will seal the valve against the seat. I can free the valve in the guide and the valve will close with spring pressure but it hangs up eventually again. I soaked the valve stem with Seafoam (on the advice from another banger buddy) to remove deposits, but to no avail. It just freed up the guide in the block even more. I got my camera and took some photos and there is galling on the valve stem. I guess it is going on to the next step, pull the head and valve....going to have to wait until after Thanksgiving.
I didn't know "Just plain Bill", besides his comments on here - he made me chuckle more than once... my thoughts goes to those, who knew him better.
Can anyone help me with the drill pattern for the 9CF clutch pressure plate?
Just need my flywheel drilled, before I can send it off to be balanced, but I might have bought a warped one, as I can't seem to get it to fit any reasonable measurements.
Measure the bolt circle, count the bolt holes and look in a machinist handbook for the formula. Do NOT do this on a drill press, use a milling machine. Use an indicator to find the true diameter of the flywheel.
Must be some here that use a real pressure plate to replace that thing. I've seen old style pressure plates shed springs.... not fun!!
