    Yes, that's what it is. It's held tight by a head stud or bolt once you center it, then you cut the ridge from the bottom up.

      Two of my most favorite people in the world right here on my post ! Fighting again Good thing is, VFF President won't ban you both for a divided thought. Bill, Tom says it's a ridge reamer and cut from the bottom up. You don't think it's a ridge reamer ? or don't cut from the bottom up ? Dog's confused

    You know, I would like to see much more pictures of it before making a determination. It looks like it could index on a cylinder, but it has no throw to cut a ridge, and if it could, I shudder to think what it takes to come up with a dimension.

    Not enough information!

        I think the antique stick rule, puts it into perspective ?

      Whew, that sure makes a world of difference. Now that I can see clearer how it might work, I am thinking like you, and it is a great wall art piece.

        Tom, does it do a good job or is it better off on the wall ?

        I'll let Tom show you and I'll watch I know it will work, but getting it centered and moving the collar down gradually would be a pain.

    • #10
      You set the long slot over an engine head stud, then push the 3 tapered leg part against the top of the bore to center the tool, then clamp it in place with a flat washer and nut. Then you can loosen the fillister head screw and slide the cutter out to the cylinder wall. The cutter should first be turned to be positioned just below the ridge. Then turning the cutter in a clockwise direction will cut the ridge as it moves upward.

      Look at the thread and it should be a left hand (reverse) thread to make the cutter rise as it's turned. I haven't used mine since the 80's, but this is how mine worked. I believe ZIM is out of Chicago, and they made several engine overhaul tools. BTW, that tool is useful, and not just a wall display.

        Good morning Tom and thanks for saying it's useful. I will try it out on an old Briggs engine I have. I didn't notice threads, but will check it out later today. So helpful you are and such a busy young man !

        Had hydraulic leaks on my skidster and have to spend some ching on new hoses today I need to get up and see you, but hopefully next week now. I need to hire a service manager down here. Tom, you wouldn't know a Tech willing to relocate ? Maybe with a Model A background and great electrical skills. Keeping my one and only bad eye open for one ;) Thank you Sir, Pat

      I have one of those some place. Never have tried to use it. Neat looking, but not pracical with having the modern style. Probably should put it in the KRW cabinet. Rod

        PAAT, going out to the farm tomorrow to do drywall work as we get the place ready to put on the market. Will look for one while I am there. Brought home the battery charger with 6V start circuit yesterday to test the starters. So I am making progress on your list, just a little slower than I hoped. Rod

        Had to shorten my sleep yesterday morning to replace the coax to our modem before it got too hot. Cable company said it had too much RF bleed and if not replced they would disconnect our cable and internet. Gave me a deadline of noon today, but had it done before noon yesterday. Then replaced the latch on storm door and shipped some 16" wheels. With only 4 hrs sleep I was shot when done after that. Anyway internet is not disconnecting every few minutes while the modem resets and the storm door will latch again. Rod

      No. 8 Head Stud
      by 29er
      I'm replacing a blown head gasket. I believe head stud #8 is the one that holds the clamp for the ignition cable. In my case, I'm using the skinny ignition cable and don't need a clamp. #8 is a little longer than the other studs to accommodate the clamp. If I replace the clamp with a flat washer to make the exposure above the nuts all the same, will it interfere with the torque? I'm thinking it won't...

      Head Stud Installation
      by 29er
      I was reviewing the various types of head studs and bolts and ran across a tool called an "angle torque gauge". Does this have any relevance to the Model "A"? Or is this tool used only for head bolts? Also, when installing new studs, is there a special procedure for somehow torquing the studs in place before installing the cylinder head and torquing the stud nuts? Or does one just...

      I evapo-rusted my block for a couple of days and didn't really get much of anything out so I flushed it and let it sit for a few days waiting for my new used head to arrive from Bert's. It's due here Wednesday so I decided to clean things up and get ready for the install. Yes, I finally got the broken stud out and replaced. Anyway, I found a small hose about 3/8" in dia. and taped it up to the...

      Stuck head
      by 2manycars
      A few years ago, someone gave me a truck load of model A engines that had been poorly stored. I saved 2 of them, but the rest were so rusted that I could only save a few parts from them.
      My brother is more persistant, and sent me these photos yesterday of his attempt to remove a stuck head. I think the new engines being cast by Tod will solve this sort of problem.
