I just need confirmation that I'm working with the correct piston and spring on a 74 1800.

Bottom of case, or side of case?

I'm also having high oil temps at high rpms. Should I find a stronger spring for the piston that goes in the bottom of the case? Or the smaller one that goes in the side of the case?
Thanks in adva ...

It stinks, but all the Bocar pumps are putting out like 7 psi nowadays. I've been using an inline gage to read pressure, while shortening the pushrod like .050 at a time in a lathe. It's way cheaper ...

I was just razzin' about the grass last year. Thanks for all you're doing to put this thing on.

The venue sounds pretty awesome. And having it two days instead of just one will make it 2-3 times more fun. I'm not real sure. You do the math.

Will Bryce need to mow this year? Laughing

I'm not living in Florida anymore, but common sense tells me to tie the cruise to a big event, such as BugJam. Far as I know, it was the last event he was supposed to attend, but missed 'cause he was ...

I've bought tons of stuff from him, didn't need to ask about price, 'cause I knew he was always a fair man. This is a huge loss to the Florida scene. My prayers are with his wife and family.

You have no advance from the carb, but can you get it to advance with your mouth on the hose? It could be that you have a bad vacuum can on the distributor. Or the advance plate is stuck somehow, or ...

Jake's kits will be idiot-proof and well worth the money. I've got over 30,000 miles on a single port 1776 of his. He built it and even installed it in my 69 bug. A loooong time ago. Before he acq ...

All it takes is a pair of calipers and a snap gage to see if you have the right interference fit. They must have been in a hurry, or training a new kid.

Your measurement is .028 thousandths out. Hopefully you torqued it to 250 ft lbs before measuring. You could (1) take the flywheel to a machine shop, which would charge you at least $50 to deepen th ...
