Today I Babbitted tomorrow I line Bore
Is this the same engine that had a broken crank, or its replacement?
This is a 1928 T engine. The one in my 25 roadster that the crankshaft broke in is actually a 1919 engine.
What kind of boring rig is that?
That's a Hempy-Cooper Main Bearing Boring Machine for Model T Fords. You better be in good shape if your going to hand crank it though.
Put the quick release main bolts on the shelf and use regular bolts while lineboring the mains. You can't torque the qc ones anywhere near enough to duplicate the clamp pressure of regular bolts.
Don , I use a Milwaukee right angle speed up tool to do the cranking.
i have one of those like deans. i will put it in my tool museum. on the rod bolts on the overlands i rework the rods so i can use stock 350 chev bolts and nuts and the sheet metal lock nuts,good enough for 350s what more could you want??????????? charley
