    Block or head layout
    by bettlesr
    I am looking for a drawing of the stud locations vs the center line of the cylinder bores. I have a Winfield 7:1 crow's foot head that I need to have flycut to clear the pistons that stick up .062" above the block. I have been using a standard gasket, a solid copper gasket and then another standard gasket. That is not really working well at this time. It left me with a crack between the water...

    Cleaning Block for New Head Gasket
    by dmaxweb
    I've got all the head bolts off except one of course. I'm in no hurry and sure as heck don't want to snap the stud so just soaking with Kroil for now.

    I came across this video on cleaning the top of the block. It's a Ford block but not Model A. Any thoughts on the procedure?

    HC Heads and Gaskets, the real dirt
    by Mitch
    I took this off the Best Gasket website. It shows the specs on all of their gasket part numbers.
    The Model A part numbers are as follows:

    Copper 509C
    Graph Tite 509G

    The Model B part numbers with the steam holes are:
    Copper 573C
    Graph Tite 573G

    How careful should I be in cleaning the engine block surface after pulling the head? do I need to keep all debris out of water jackets, cylinders, etc.?

    Finally replaced the head gasket, need a head
    by thom
    I overheated our '28 Sport Coupe some time back and thought it had blown a head gasket, again. Today I finally changed the gasket. When I thought I was all done and poured water in the radiator it began leaking out. I first thought it was coming out at the gasket in the center on the driver's side, but after a closer look it appears that the head is cracked just above the gasket surface in that area....
