      Pulled the head...
      by Bjunkans
      I posted a while ago about my head gasket going and pumping oil out around the ignition stud. Finally got around to taking the head off, thanks to you guys it went fairly well, loosened the nuts tried to start and the head came loose before it even started. Now for what i discovered after I got the head off, carbon in all cylinders especially bad on cylinders 2 and 3. 3 and 4 seem to be my oil pumpers....

      Multiple Disc Clutch and Engine mating...
      by Steve Plucker
      What would be easier...mating the engine to a Multi Disc Clutch with the clutch assembly already attached to the Rear End or having the Engine and MDC already assembled then mate it to the Rear End?

      Thanks.

      I hope I have a single plate clutch
      by thom
      It appears that when our '28 coupe was restored, or sometime during it's life the engine block was replaced with a '30 model block. The car is an early '28 with the park brake lever just inside the driver's door. I hope that when the engine was swapped that the clutch was swapped to a single disc version. I currently have the floorboards out and would like to see pics of the differences in the bell...

      A & B engine differences info
      by Mitch
      'What's are the differences in the Ford A, B and C engines?'


      The 1932 V-8 was introduced as the 'Ford Model 18.' The four cylinder model was designated the 'Model B.' Although the V-8 was a national sensation and sold very well, there were many four cylinder Model B's produced. Compression of the Model B engine was 4.8; the A was 4.2. The Model B engine produced 50 hp at 2800...

      a B engine, or a C engine, that is the question
      by Ed Saniewski
      A friend of a friend is looking to buy a model A roadster , and it comes with a spare motor. The seller states that it is a C motor and worth a few thousand dollars. I have heard of a B motor, but have never heard of a C motor. How do you tell the difference? Thanks

      Rattle in engine
      by Chuck Sea/Tac
      it sounds like a sheet metal rattle or like a loose nut and bolt.it is NOT outside of the motor. You can hear it when you blip the throttle from an idle also at one rpm range, about 35 mph in 3rd. It seems to be coming from the front of the engine, either in the pan or possibly in the valve camber. It’s a one price crank pulley and tight.I’ve put my hand on the pan, but don’t feel anything....
