Re: Which Bronze to use ?

You would be better to split the nuts into two down the middle normal (90 degrees)to the axis and have a means of adjusting them angular wise to each other .You can then adjust the play out of the equation for a long time until the threaded shaft wears unevenly enough for it to matter. Nev

Re: 350 nh

The 350's must have been very popular. Years ago a friend of mine bought one (second hand) in London and toured all over Europe on it, without any issues. and they keep cropping up for sale. I had a 54 with the older brakes and put an iron VH top and innards in it. (in Australia) and sold it in the ...

Re: Studebaker Sq 4.

Coupled cranks and coupled to a shaft Drive with two changes of direction. Sounds like a nightmare to me. Where would the clutch go? For one thing. Nev

Re: 1948 Iron 4G Coil Ignition

Aerostart and such Have ether in them and a very low octane figure. You could get a bit of dieseling 'clacking detonation" not particularly good for head Gaskets and engines generally A small piece of rag soaked in petrol will do as well as long as it doesn't go into the engine. It doesn't need...

Re: 1930 cam profiles.

The twin port head will not work as well as a single port one does with "wilder" cams. It's a styling exercise rather than a performance one. They run a big base dia cam with the sidevalve type adjusters and all that is extra weight mitigating against the wild cams as well. The better of t...

Re: Valve stem oil seals

You can run inlet valve to guide fits pretty close, (they really only have to be free) especially when there's so much oil about. Exhaust guides are a different matter. The need some clearance and on a 3/8 stem it may require .003" If you can get a really good finish ,they will wear a lot less ...

Re: Paint problems Rustoleum

" Modern" paints causing crocodiling of older paints is not unusual, no matter how long it's been left to dry. The wetter the top coat the more likelihood of it happening as it drys slower .A 2 pack clear might be less reactive with paint under it and is best with petrol. Not sure I'd blam...
