  1. Try taking the return elbow off the top of the pump. If it runs ok there is a restriction somewhere between the pump and the tank. You can kill the motor by holding your finger on the hole. When the pressure equalizes on both sides of the plungers, the engine dies. When you have a movable obstruction, there is no set time limit on how long the engine will run. When it builds up pressure, it quits.
  2. Your subject is interesting to me because I want to try the same thing in a F30. I have a busted up all- fuel manifold that l’m trying to piece back together. I was wondering what you tried your special brew in. Are you looking for a manifold because yours is in bad shape or did you try it with a gas manifold?
  3. There are small foundries that do custom one-off stuff like that that, there used to be one in either Red Power or Harvester Highlights. Find one and discuss what you want to do. I don’t know your wood working prowess but it is possible that you could make the pattern ( you will need mathematics and a foundry ruler) and give it to them to cast for you. Or, just pay them to make the pattern. Just guessing as I do not know pattern maker’s wages, if $100/hr, you could be looking at $800 starting point . But call a foundry first and let them explain your options.
  4. We had a mom-n-pop auto parts store that handled S-K. One day I went in there and the entire S-K inventory was gone , replaced with True-craft. I inquired as to why, owner said credit on broken tools declined until it was nonexistent. The auto parts store replaced the the tools for the patrons, but received no credit from S-K. Ultimately, the inventory went back to S-K , and a 5 gallon bucket of broken tools went in the scrap pile. This occurred in the late 80s, I didn’t know S-K even existed in this century.
  5. Just out of curiosity, how did the valve get in there? Head break off? Strip the keys? Stem break below the retainer? While the the valve striking the seat crooked when nearly closed is less than ideal, it is possible that you have unrelated coincidences here. After all , valves do fail when everything is running straight and true. Like the one pictured. There comes a point in time that the valves and springs and keys should be thrown away in high- time engines, or, in your case, a head of unknown origin, to minimize the possibility of a fatigue failure.
  6. Tony, it appears to me that you have taken offense at my comment and I assure you that I was not in the least discounting the value of your post. I’ve both seen and heard that a written statement can be interpreted in different ways than a spoken one. I failed to make myself clear, the fault is entirely mine. Or, if your scratching your head wondering what I’m talking about, well that’s just me getting it wrong again. As a friend once told me, “It’s better to LOOK stupid than to BE stupid”. Hope we can part as friends. B.
  7. Well be that as it may, the point of my comment was to use a repair sleeve for a sleeveless block which has no counter bore. So if any counter bore remains in that 9 block after boring to fit the sleeve, it would probably have to be enlarged anyway to accommodate the greater flange diameter of the repair sleeve. The whole argument is pointless anyway because he’s already got it handled, at a sensational price , I might add.
  8. So what do you do when you have to double sleeve a damaged cylinder ?
  9. So you’re getting 4 custom sleeves, remove studs, deck the block , turn the crank for $1000? Dang that’s cheap.
  10. 434’s were never 6 volt, were never positive ground and have only a temperature gauge. Oil and charge are indicator lights. It could possibly have a factory alternator if it’s a late one. It would have originally had a Lucas, possibly cost too much to fix and grafted on a much more common Delco. Whether or not it is charging, this will have no bearing on whether the instruments work. All you need is a test lamp to see if the instruments are getting power from the ignition switch.
  11. The Ford 9700 is 4.4inch bore. Six repair sleeves installed was $1100. You should modify the block to take a common sleeve, not the other way around. You’ll have to have a custom sleeve made every time a malfunction occurs. Not saying one will, but if one does, you’ll have but to pull the sleeve and replace it with an off the shelf component ; not paying for expensive custom work.
  12. With a little ingenuity you can install 5100 tubes on a M-F drill. Those are only $13 each. Ribbon tubes are great but not $50 great.
  13. He would probably know that dimension you’re looking for also. He ran a machine shop for 60 years and is pretty knowledgeable.
  14. Google rockanddirt.com and ask for their newspaper. The back section is all parts suppliers, and a heap of undercarriage people. Explain what you have to them and they will figure it out for you TD-15 is a popular mid size machine , must have the same chain pitch as something else.
  15. That place in Wisconsin that saved all the IHC paperwork, can’t think of the name right now.
