    What head is this one now John? Fantastic.
    The water pump on the Dodd looks similar to a Dan Price one.

    poshdbs,
    I think you are right Dan Price might make that pump.
    This head is a highly modified Moller casting. It is a monster, I sheared off the driveshaft in the dyno with it.
    Needless to say, it only goes down course anymore and I just work on refining the tune from there.

    John

    You probably got your clamp ordeal taken care of already but another place to find that type of clamp is on some old oil bath air cleaners ...some are flat but I have had some that were V shaped..here's kind of a cool one if a quik release would help, this one is from dairy farm milking equipment.
    The small one with the thumb screw is a aircraft one.
    And then the flat band type. 20191124_210644.jpeg 20191124_210814.jpeg

    Oh I’ve already got stuff coming. Sharp heads, a cam and dual carb intake.

  15. No, that's an A-6019-BR cover which was supplied to service for Model A's after 1932 Model B production began.
    On the B timing covers, the timing pin hole is higher.
    You can time an A engine with a b distributor with an A timing cover though.

    Na, can go another .050
    Those springs couldn't keep up, went to the 1.6 dia big block springs and picked up some revs.

    All good, hey did you get your block yet?

    I made a jigg to copy the B hole on a A timing cover. Can´t find the picture right now, but from the edge of the A´s thread hole to the punch mark for the B thread hole, it is 0,231"
    and from center of the A´s thread hole to the punch mark, it is 0,375"
