  • $17.03 including S&H

    Is what it cost to fix my cracked block. No leak and no overheating now. Either I did it right or this stuff is foolproof but time will tell as everything else is. Received directions and enough for repair of the crack from:

    He swore it's far better than JB Weld. I don't know personally but he does. Thanks to Mitch for putting me onto Antique Engine Repair out of Skokie, Illinois.

    What is the product used or is it proprietary to AER?

      It's called Titanium Putty and it's offered on the market. He buys in bulk and sells it in smaller amounts.

        Holy cow................that stuff better be good. Now, who's going to glue some valve heads together to compare it to JB Weld?

          Tom how many are you going to get? Just think of the unlimited things you can build with that stuff. Heck you can even put your Gennys together without bolts LOL

        I believed that's why he sells it in smaller amount to the average guy, I wasn't going to buy that much for the crack I had.

        I'm just back from another run, eight miles round trip, never saw the mercury at all in the motometer. Returned, check the rad with a meat thermometer, 161, rose to 169 after sitting. Today's temp outside was 58 so far. No leak that I can see............so far, in fact, no leaks at all anywhere after sitting for a month.

        I have an appointment for my Mechanic Certification Test next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          You know Carl, after reading the description oh Ebay from the sounds of it you could use it to rebuild the valve area and still machine it to specs.

        $17.03 including S&H???? S&H,, you mean like in Green Stamps?? I didn't know they were still around!

        Sounds like good stuff.

        Anything new on Tod's having a foundry casting a new Model A block? Haven't seen anything lately on the 'other' site. The Mustang guys tell me he has really good 351 castings out

          Waiting to amass enough S&H Green Stamps to buy something sure taught you patience! Although it was a great help if a neighbor or friend didn't collect the stamps but would set them aside for you.

          It sure was. Mom would bring the coupon book home and we would look at all the neat toys in the book that you could get, but that never happened. Went to kitchen stuff, towels, etc.

          Oh well it was fun to see the toys!

        Thanks. I wonder if this stuff would work in worn door hinge barrels. We tried another "high strength epoxy" to fill in the center barrel which was worn and then drilled it out for the standard size hinge pin. It worked ok until trying to remove the pin later as a test.The epoxy came out with the pin so adhesion is critical. We ended up sleeving the barrel with tubing.

          I flunked that 'technician in a can' test Mitch made reference to. During the practical I lost the plastic straw thingy from a spray can down the secondary of a wide open quadrajet on a big old Buick. I did get 89% on the snake oil identification part of the test.

            That's ok Mike,
            I lost many straws that got sucked into an intake nipple checking to see if the motor is running lean. They never ever hurt a thing being in there and probably just melt down and get sucked through.
            You passed in my book

          Back in the mid 80's I knew a guy that bead blasted his intake manifold on a Ford V8, and he didn't get all the glass beads out. The van started right up and ran fine for the 10 minutes he let it run. When he went to restart it a half hour later, he had no compression. The glass beads melted and solidified the rings to the pistons. He had to pull it all apart again.

            I'm surprised it ran good for 10 minutes

          Block valve guide crack repair
          by Chuck Sea/Tac
          At least exhaust 1 2 & 3 have cracks. Evidently the machinist did the damage installed the guides in the block. There is no leaking at this time, and I think there’s a possibility of drilling a stop hole, as the cracks appear to be above the water jacket. Thanks for your thoughts.
          its a new build with new Babbitt and has been ran.

          Engine viewing
          by pAAt
          Well I have a date to see an engine on Tuesday. I haven't bought anything, A related, for a while. He's asking $650 for the base engine only, which has been honed/rings, one shim out of crank, painted, run for a 1/2 hour with a re-torque of the head. He said he's been working on them for years and has more laying around that will be ready soon. Figure I may as well go do the talk/snoop thing...

          Engine's out
          by PAPADUDE
          I have taken the engine out and mounted it on an improvised stand. Plan on removing head , pan, valve covers and transmission cover to inspect engine to see what I have and repair as needed. I only have 3 coils for it right now but prior to removing the engine it started and ran rather well for only hitting on 3 cylinders. I'm just getting started but I fear I am getting the fever for Ts.

          Checking Clearances
          by pAAt
          Yesterday I checked some clearances on an engine I acquired a few weeks ago. Mains .002, rod caps .003, intake 13, exhaust 15-16, and I was thinking about pulling pistons, one at at time, to check clearances. This engine came from a fellow that said it was his first build and never run. He said someday he was going to revisit it, but dropped it into my lap. It sure looks like newly poured babbitt...

          Other than keep an eye out on the normal sale channels, are there any vendors that would sell a rebuilt motor outright, without a core? My motor shop has a huge backlog and he has my short block. I am sticking with him for this build as I like what he does. So does a lot of folks, or he wouldn't be backed up. I don't even know if my block is good yet. I want to get a motor to keep my build going this...

          Cracked block
          by 31Roadster
          I have a cracked block left side of engine leaking water . May try Blue Devil Block sealer . Any other suggestions other than a new block. I used it last year for a sand hole casting leak in the valve adjusting chamber worked out good so far over 2000 miles on that repair .
