  1. Weight of 230 ci inline 6

    Approximately 550 to 600 lbs.
  2. Edgy heads being poured now

    Easy, specified CC and comp ratio chamber design etc. Spec is new and determined. For example a brand new iron head at 9 to 1 comp ratio. No measuring an old OEM head to ascertain how much is removed already and how much more it can go.
  3. Edgy heads being poured now

    Okay no problem.
  4. 265 motor

    Most Canadian engines i have ever seen end in C. Yours could be a US built engine just minus the Spitfire head.
  5. Edgy heads being poured now

    Nice but way too rich for my blood. Can buy a lot of engine parts for that amount. I would possibly order if I could afford it and I'm not putting it on Visa
  6. 265 motor

    Hmmm yes of course. Whats your engine number? And does it end in C meaning built in Canada? No Spitfire heads ever on a Windsor Ontario built Canadian engine.
  7. 265 motor

    Canadian built? No Spitfire head engines here.

  9. Cut out and weld in new sheet metal. Or use 3M panel bond on sheet metal patch. Pretty straight forward.
  10. Asian Beetle Invasion/ Infestation

    Hey all, Who has been pestered by these biting, smelly Asian beetles. The look like Lady Bugs but are not. Last fall was terrible, these suckers trying to get indoors by the 100s. Still finding some crawling around. Thank you US Dept Of Agriculture for introducing these pests to North America....BOOH
  11. Home Made Intake and Exhaust

    Nice you need to video this...
  12. Carb upgrade, fingers crossed

    Yes dont do that. Lucky here gravel road and highway super dry..
  13. Glove Box Door ?

    Thanx Buddy back in business. I knew i had 1, but even Ole Rockwood wasnt sure what it'spurpose was....lol
  14. Glove Box Door ?

    Okay on my C series truck my glove box door flys open every time i floor it. Not sure a magnet latch would work. Anyone else deal with this?
  15. Sbc in 50 plymouth

    Doesnt Lokar have the aftermarket throttle kick down assembly? Stock linkage style is probably best and cheapest if its there. Good points though some people dont know this and ruin their transmissions.
  16. Carb upgrade, fingers crossed

    Whens the test drive? Wondering how it will perform and if more power is noticed and at what ranges. Gotta have some dry roads un your area?
  17. Brake drum max inside diameter??

    No they dont necessarily. But most manufacturers and jurisdictions limit passenger car brake drums to .060 over size and some to .090 stamped on drums at times too. I would keep it to .060 on these to be honest as to not have any issues with the shoes expansion limits are not too far exceeded.
  18. Brake drum max inside diameter??

    Are they in good shape now? If they need machining take off the least necessary.
  19. Brake drum max inside diameter??

    Generally .060 over 10 or 11 inch drums max. What do they measure now?
  20. hot rod 1930 plymouth

    Kool. A 230 or a 265 would be great. Speed Parts, George Asche, Edgy Speedshop, Langdon sells nice cast headers for both.
  21. Glove Box Door ?

    Gotta get me a spring like that cant find any at home.
  22. Glove Box Door ?

    What 218 ? Yah missing mine and i might know where 1 is.
  23. Topping up gearbox oil

    Just drain and fill with GL 1 if you need piece of mind. Like Ed and I said we both used the modern type GL4/5 with no ill effects. Mine has had GL 5 for 6 years as I didnt know any better. We dont need a " trans gear oil mass hysteria"....lol
  24. Glove Box Door ?

    Great idea thanx
  25. Topping up gearbox oil

    I have too without ruining tbe brass. Wonder if the sulphur content varies in brands etc. Is this the same as, oh you should run non detergent 30 weight oil only in those old flatheads ?
