Re: What to do Next

Sludge all gone, timing gear done three months ago, water jacket air blown, and all sealed up. No leaks, drips or oil drips. Is smoke in filler tube normal?

Re: What to do Next

I did lapp the valves for quit a while, and they seems nice and snug. As for machining the head no, I just cleaned it up and emory clothed the sealing surfaces to assure a good seal. The head measured flat and true, as per my methods. I will know this weekend if I gained any speed, but the smell of ...

Re: What to do Next

So I changed the valves, and valve guides. Most of the valves showed oil getting past. I got it back together and motor feels much stronger. Icy day so I couldn't take it out for a speed test.

Re: What to do Next

I am inclined to take your advice. I have ordered a new valve kit, guides springs, etc. I will pull the head and make the changes, and see what happens. In the interim, I can soak the cylinders with Marvels Mystery oil to see if that frees up some gunk. Thanks for the advice. I will keep you all pos...

Re: What to do Next

Ok, well lots of ideas. I went back and checked the cylinders again. #1=50psi, #2=40psi, #3=40 psi, #4=50psi. Plugs 3&4 oily, plugs 1&2 not so oily. As for blue smoke, not so visible, but my exhaust smells oily. What position does the rotor have to be in to get all four cylinders to be part way down...

Re: What to do Next

Ok, now I tested all the cylinders at top dead center and all four cylinders leak through the oil fill tube. So does that mean rings for all four cylinders? How do I determine what size rings to buy? Does my test tell me my valves are ok?

Re: What to do Next

Ok I did the test. Motor turned to top dead center. Spark plug 1, closest to radiator, air is leaking through oil fill tube. In cylinder 2,3,4 I hear air going to muffler. Does that mean I need valves and rings?

Re: What to do Next

Stakebed, et al , Thanks for your insight. 1/2 a cup of oil, no I certainly did not use that much. As for oil placement, I can't be sure of that either. I have an old plug with an air compressor fitting welded to it, and I can regulate my air pressure, so i can bring it up from 5 psi to 30, when I d...

Re: What to do Next

Hey thanks for the help.. let's see, yes I have oily spark plugs. As for how much oil, from full to low on 2 tanks of fuel. The truck paint is midnight blue. I have a high speed rear out of a 30 AA. I have an original dipstick and a 29 AA motor 2. Million serial number. I lean towards rings, as I ha...

What to do Next

Hello, I have my '29 AA on the road, and have actually driven 550 miles, lots of fun. Ok well, I seem to be burning oil and my compression tests at 40 psi across all four cylinder. I had added oil to one cylinder head, and tested again, no help on compression. Do I need rings? What is best technique...

Re: What is the best way to change the Front Cross Member?

Why not remove the engine while you do the work,a whole lot easier to get at all the rivets with a torch. The engine goes in and out with little effort and good time to replace the clutch. Just a thought.
