  • A Model B Crankshaft, Maybe Not

    Just saw this listed on ebay, but I'd guess it's an early V8 crankshaft.

        Mitch, is Tom looking for a crank ? I got two engines with my truck, the original and a extra 5 bearing cam, w/new style crank, .010 pistons, painted a nice green. I would give the guy, that helped me build the original motor, the extra one. Plus a Delcolight Plant, that I believe I gave someone already ? Memory is fading fast ;) Thanks, Pat

            I don't need a crank, but just noticed this one on ebay.
            The crank throws appear to be 90 degrees apart, which means a V8 or someone made a 4 cylinder into an uneven fire.

              I think you are right it looks like a early V8. Does this mean I will not be the only one with a uneven fire engine.

                  1933 v8 Crankshaft/Rod Bearing "Oversized"
                  by ClaudeC
                  I noticed when looking to purchase replacement bearing that they list standard size plus additional oversized sized. Why are there oversized sizes, Is this to do with the original block size variations?

                  motor balancing attempt with pics
                  by Tom Bellfoy
                  First of all this was not my attempt
                  What can you knowledgable Model A guys tell me about this attempt to balance this A motor ?
                  here are the facts:
                  - The motor has only about 5 hours on it after rebuild and balanced.
                  - no matter the positioning of the flywheel in relation to the pressure plate it would shake the fillings out of your teeth.
                  - using a fairly accurate kitchen...

                  Understanding Crankshaft Balance and Counterweights
                  by Tom Wesenberg
                  Several people have a hard time understanding static and dynamic balance, and the need for counterweights.
                  Jack up the front wheel on your Model A, and if it's in perfect static balance, it will stay wherever you rotate it and remove your hand. Now place a 6 ounce weight on the outside of the rim, and it will sink to the bottom because it's out of static balance. Now place a 6 ounce weight exactly...

                  Burlington crankshaft and float-a-motor mounts
                  by Dennis
                  I was reading Burlington's website about recommendations and noticed they recommend not using float a motor mounts. Anybody have experience with a Burlington and would like to comment? I realize this is a suggestion and not required. Also I notice the kit made to install a 32 and up trans requires float a motor mounts, so it looks like you don't have a choice in that circumstance.

                  If I pressurize the mains?
                  by DaWizard
                  I have been sorta developing a pressurizing for the main bearings that I have confidence will work. What I am wondering is, do I really need to drill the crank and pressure oil the rods?

                  I know, I know, you are going to say, "why go half way?", well, on my extremely limited budget I can't pay for a drilled crank, nor can I do the job myself without the fixtures and mill the

                  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....

                  B Block with Drilled Counterweighted Crankshaft
                  by Tom Wesenberg
                  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.
