    Finding TDC

    And if you turn the engine back and forth past TDC , you will find that #6 inlet and exhaust valves will open and close accordingly, ie. tighten and loosen on the tappets. This should confirm that your timing chain is installed probably correctly, could still be off by a tooth but unlikely.

    Distributor Wiring

    The coil will function when connected incorrectly. Not as effectively but still works.
  3. It's a tuff gig but someone has to do it....😉

    Does it die immediately? If so, probably an electrical issue to the ignition system. Ignition switch?

    Ben Mendelsohn. He does a great character of an aussie meth head in this movie. I can't remember the name of the movie .

    Great movie that one.
  9. Lol! You can see more pics here, www.roaringtwenties.net.au
  10. I think it's lost some of its character, not as noisey, and cabin would fill with smoke from the blowby that came out of the crankcase tube, it would distract the brides (I do weddings) from their anxiety. In 1928 Walter Chrysler said it had 54hp from a 180ci, this motor was bored 0.060" whatever that works out to be, now it's probably close to that but still needs a good fine tune. Regardless, I can drive it at regular traffic speeds, up-to 40mph, pulls strong. The old motor probably was down to 30hp

    6v heater fan wiring polarity confusion

    It will be fine, will spin faster.
  12. Drum roll.................................. Drive shaft had wore inside the pockets of the balls. When I inspected the drive shaft initially, the balls looked GREAT! However, neglected to look inside the cups, which are worn badly. Why do they make the balls from hardened steal and the cups from mild steal? It surely is easier to replace the balls than the cups. New modern drive shaft (almost a hotrod now) and she is less rattly...lol
  13. The engine is so quiet now that I can hear the loose change in my pockets and all the other rattles....lol Drum roll..................................

  14. The mystery of the rattle is solved....😁
