  1. Even though my 1942 W4 has electric start capabilities, I'd like to hear YOUR recipe for hand (crank) starting your H or 4-series McCormick. I'd just like to be able to develop a method that works reliably for cold start specifically. Most likely you have a different recipe for warm start too. I'd like that also. I THINK there's probably some sage advice for where to set the governor control, choke, how many 'pulls' ( or lifts) and then turn on the mag for one more pull. What procedure always seems to work for you? Thanks,
  2. Working on a (new to me) 1942 W-4 with an M&W live hydraulic pump on the distributor drive train. While cleaning everything and replacing bad hoses I found the old fluid was partially like jelly and lumpy. OK, I'm replacing the fluid too, BUT WITH WHAT?!? The pump is #202PX at 1000PSI, 12GPM, and 7HP. I need some idea what fluid (or weight) I should put in it. Thanks for sharing your expertise !
  3. C152 cylinder head stud sleeves

    On the C152 cylinder head for an H or W4 there are several cylinder head studs that go though the water jacket. These studs go through a sleeve in the water jacket. I noticed today on my W4's cylinder head that one of these sleeves has a hole corroded through it. So if I rebuild the head as is, my brand new studs will be exposed to the engine coolant. Which I figure is the reason this stud was so hard to remove that it broke! Does anyone know if these sleeves can be pushed out? Are there replacements?
