  • B Block with Drilled Counterweighted Crankshaft

    This could be a good start for someone's engine build. I'd want to see it in person though, otherwise you bid at your own risk.

    Nice grease what does the top side look like.

      There might be nothing wrong with a welded freeze crack, but I'd pass on it. How much has that crank been turned? What's the bore? A lot of things to take into consideration. I've seen a few complete A engines at the swap meet for $75.00 How do you know without looking at everything what you are getting besides a scrap piece of iron?

        Rebuilding a model A engine
        by George Miller
        I do not want to get into bashing people. So I,m going to say the model A engine is one of the hardiest to get right when rebuilding them. You could do 2 chev small blocks or Ford small block to 1 model A engine, that is if you do it right. Every one always says how simple they are. But they are not simple to get right....

        How much can I remove?
        by DaWizard
        The engine I got has some serious pitting on the top of the block. I would like to know just how much surface I can remove to get rid of that pitting?

        I am thinking most of you will say just find another block or engine, and I might do that depending on what my surfacer says it will cost me. We will see.

        Engine Block Sleeves
        by dmdeaton
        If you need to sleeve a block, are the new sleeves modern steel? How do these wear and hold up compared to the stock cast iron bores?...

        2 questions, crack in block and holes in crankshaft.
        by old31
        1: Do I have to worry about the hairline crack on each side of the stud?

        2: Do those holes mean that my crankshaft is balanced? I have 2 holes in the back and 1 upfront?

        Opinions:. How much power???
        by Corley
        Just wondering about how much power do you think one should expect a stock A bottom end to hold up to with fair reliability? The are lots of ways to extract more beans from the A engine, but hat bottom end is pretty whimpy. Or a touring car, no racing involved, do you suppose the bottom end can take, say, 80 hp? 100?

        I've got a neat little blower, meant for a Miata, but never used,...

        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 .
