Re: noticed a difference(H V intake manifold)

Norman,

My engine is standard bore with cast iron pistons, I have a Z head and a exhaust header. My car is a speedster. I also use an electric fuel pump.

noticed a difference(H V intake manifold)

Just wanted to say that I noticed a difference in performance by switching my stock intake manifold to the High Volume intake manifold. I run a texas T modern carb. Anyone else have a similar experience?

Are the Baughman brake rods make installation and adjustment easier with the AC brakes? I have the Sidmore AC brakes waiting to go on a speedster project.

Re: Adjustable Two Piece Valve lifter Question

are your lifters adjustable? When I did mine which had non adjustable lifters of all the new valves, I only had to grind one stem to get the clearance. with adjustable lifters i wouldn't think you would have to grind any of the stems. if my thinking is not correct please I welcome the input.

I agree with Dan,

If you go lightly you can probably clean that seat enough to use it for a while. I didn't realize it was that thin between the valves, then again my budget at the moment doesn't allow for overhead toys. :lol: :lol: :roll:

Re: Srtomberg carb and Burns intake

My uncle ran a stromberg 97 with a stock head when he first built his speedster. he used #41 jets and it worked perfect. I am going to put a 97 on my next speedster, I have the manifold for it already, and a either a Sherman head or a Z head which I have both of.
