Folks on my waiting list have just been contacted, and I have several left over from the run, so if you're interested, now is the time to get them... I am still including a free lead washer with each valve, in case you have a particularly stubborn carb that will not seal with the fiber washer. The n...

Re: 10 vs 11 tooth pinion

Tim I ran one of the South Dakota Black Hills National tours in a 1919 depot hack with an engine with "0" miles. Not an ideal break-in but I did a lot of oil changes and maintenance on the car each day. That said, the car had stock rear end, was a very heavy car, and passed a lot of broken cars (all...

Re: 10 vs 11 tooth pinion

This pinion was typically used on heavier closed cars in the mountains. I think it would take a very healthy engine to get to 40MPH for any length of time, myself. A tired engine and a 4:1 rear end, more like 30MPH wound out. Would be great with a Warford and overdrive.

Given that it's a fixed ratio of drive gear to driven gear, and the fact that there existed and still exists standard gear pitch and module values, I'm going to bet that the gears are going to be very similar regardless of mfg.
