  1. can anyone give me some info on this IH paperweight

    Reaper, I notice it says "forging" not casting or pour. Not sure if it makes any difference. Maybe they shut down the forging line/plant for engine parts about when the 300/400 series engines came on line at Melrose park ready for the 66 series??? purely a guess Heath ,Nz

  7. Seal for td9

    Hi everyone, a friend is trying to locate a torque converter seal for his td9... part no : 606293c91 (Possibly superceeded to "c92") it looks to Be some kind of high temp seal as it has something like a Viton/teflon seal material inside a steel casing. We are having a little trouble locating an alternative seal to do the job Any help greatly appreciated Heath, NZ
  8. Look at this cherry red manifold on this 1456

    That Ford engine is the Australian built 4.0 litre inline six As fitted to the "Falcon" range of cars. those things can make serious numbers with relatively minor modifications.
  9. Yes ,and the Gm LS series engines use 11mm head bolts and flywheel bolts The 3800 Buick uses a mixture of metric and imperial in the same engine
  10. 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4 etc etc. ....no sense in having to buy two sets of everything .....no point in changing the size of the drive anyway....just more cost for the manufacturers
