          Hi guys... Sorry for the long pause in my activity here - I’ve been a bit under the weather and so has Dar. Now trying to get caught up around our place here in AZ. More on that in another thread.
          I ‘spose we oughta stick with Fords - I have had numerous non-Ford vehicles that might qualify as Engine-Porn however..
          Here’s a cool pic of another engine going into a GT40 replica.. I like the Weber look EFI.

                Thanks Mitch.
                Yes on the HEI. I have one in my 33 with 302 as well. I’m going to be removing mine and installing a Duraspark dist at some point.

                  Geneology of an A Engine
                  by Denis4x4
                  As an old hot rodder, I never consider a car is ever finished. To that point, here are the modifications that I've made to the A engine in my roadster over a 26 year period.

                  The engine in my avatar was built in May of 1931 and rebuilt in August of 1992. At the 2015 Speedster Reunion, this engine in my Zipper roadster registered 60HP @ 3500 RPM's at the rear wheels. It's been in and...

                  I need serious experienced help with an engine problem
                  by Ray Horton
                  This engine, with only 4000 miles on it since rebuild, has always overheated and locked up when shut down after overheating, which is usually when driven at 45 or less for 30 minutes or more. (This did not and does not happen when driven under 35 and/or just around town for less than 45 minutes). I thought I had this problem fixed. But apparently not.

                  Here is the history: On 3/16/14 I...

                  This would apply to the Model A Fords just as as well as the new cars. It is a new 'take' on SeaFoam, SeaFoam was designed for two stroke engines according to Scotty Kilmer. Makes sense why it doesn't work as well on a four stroke engine. Check out this short video. I have used SeaFoam in all my cars for years, I'm switching over and trying something new like the Gumout. Mitch would be familiar...

                  I learned something new today
                  by copgib
                  Most of you know the story of my 1930 Model A. It was a barn find that had a siezed up engine. The seller which was my brothers church friend sold it to me and when he heard the engine was siezed, he offered me another engine that was in a 1929 Model A Basket case. I was told it had been rebuilt a few years earlier. My mechanic at the time confirmed it looked like it had been rebuilt after checking...

                  First is the front of the Model A Museum building, built as an old dealership would have been. Franklin, Lincoln, and Cadillac have done the same.
                  Next is 3 Franklin engines on display just before entering the special exhibit room. The cutaway engine is a 1963 turbocharged Corvair Spyder engine. The last most will know is the Delorian....

                  English Ford Pilot engine
                  by pooch
                  gday, I am curious as to when the Poms started building the 21 stud engine and a few details .

                  I know they never changed to 24 stud , and had a lot of surplus engines over at war's end, so they designed a car to use the engine, which became the pilot, a car that in size and shape very similar to a 36 USA Ford sedan .

                  The only difference in the engine casting that i can readily...

                  Old wives tale or fact?
                  by Chuck Sea/Tac
                  my friend was told to not push your car over 50 mph when it’s really hot out.? The only reason I can think of is being worried of a poor cooling system.?
                  the other one was don’t drive at the same rpm for long stretches. Makes no sense to me, unless the engine isn’t broken in.
                  On the same note, 20 years ago i pulled up to a display show our club was doing, and retarded the spark for...

                  Engine rebuilding
                  by tbirdtbird
                  Many Model A owners will need their engine overhauled at some point. There are great many questions that come up when this occurs. We strongly encourage owners to do careful research, as there seems to be a lot of shops that claim they know engine building, but few that really do. Questions such as, babbitt or inserts, ring gaps, piston-to-cyl wall clearance, piston choices, camshaft choices, proper...

                  This is not for the old timers who know and have experience with these things, but for the new comers who have some machines and the know how to use them and want/need a little more hp under the hood to keep up with traffic, First, The head! The 5.5 heads coming from Snyders are an excellent first step. Even the 6.0 seems to be ok. For a little over $300 this should be the first consideration. Next,...
