Re: Motor Parts

A follow up on my alternator adjustments. Lowes did not have any wide 1/4" aluminum plate so I had to go with a 1" piece. This added an additional challenge. So I used some of my years of watching "The Woodwright Shop" on PBS. The shows on forging in the blacksmith shop paid off. All is well now and...

Re: Motor Parts

Here's another long winded follow up on the mounting holes. The drilling went well (didn't strike water or break off a tap). The mounting bkt needed a little filing to get the holes lined up but that went well also. However as one thing changes so does another. The boss for the holes is a large area...

Re: Motor Parts

Here it the solution that I came up with for my drilling jig.

That's a level tapped to the handle. And a 90 deg magnet for the side to side.

Re: Motor Parts

Thanks for the "support" I think. Yes it is all part of it. This block was given to me already prepped so I was a little disconnected (at least that is the story I'm sticking to). I have to assume it is an early 400 block as the starter didn't have 2 mounting sets and now the lower holes. But it is ...

Re: Motor Parts

As the old saying goes. "What is wrong with these pictures"? The alternator was the last part left to bolt on however as the pictures show no holes. Sure wish I had seen the holes missing while the motor was out of the car. Had to pull the electric steering back out but I can get to the bosses. So i...

Re: Motor Parts

Starts when warm ok. I don't think no fuel was the problem. The Holley double pumper dumps lots of fuel when you move the throttle. for a while I thought I had flooded it. I have to pull the distributor to get the motor back in (its in the wrong place you know..lol) that is why I had to redo the tim...

Re: Motor Parts

Here's another one of my long winded progress report. No pictures this time but I just had to share this one. I got the motor in the car. Won't start. So I do the reset distributor thing over and over and over. It's got spark and fuel won't start! I had dropped the cap while moving things around on ...

Re: Motor Parts

It was in September when I broke my hotrod's motor. Things are looking up now. I static set the timing and it was right on the money...go figure. Filled up the float bowls and hit the gas a couple of times and VROOM! (v) ..] No leaks or bad noises coming from the engine so big smiles here. O:::: Now...
