Re: First timer main caps

Well guys believe it was a touch too hot by the numbers ive been told but I believe it to be my best pour yet after dusting off the cap with my Babbitt knife the Babbitt was clean and with almost a chrome finish, it fell a tiny bit short the length of the cap near the matting surface but don’t know ...

Re: First timer main caps

Joe bell thank you for the advice but I have found that if you don’t cut sprue and clean mating surfaces of cap when hot it is hard as a rock and it for me has been easier to get the cap clean and sprue cut out of the way while it’s still hot. I’m still learning and will pour all three mains agin ju...

Re: First timer main caps

Jab I started using the temps mike bender gave me and got much better results 500+ degrees on cap and mold and 900 plus on Babbitt I found that when the dross on the top of your Babbitt starts turning the color of pencil lead your at 900 plus I tested this theory with a IR temp gun with a probe Gene...

Re: First timer main caps

Well guys the third main turned out to be a horrible fail... don’t know where I went wrong but the mold seemed level, anti heat damming the front plates but I couldn’t get the mold to fill I believe my tin job fell short and the upper edges and didn’t give the Babbit anything to bond to so it just p...

Re: looking for easy way to check toe-in

I believe the book says to measure centerline to centerline in the front side half way up the tire and the back side half way up and there should be a 3” difference, the front should be 3” closer to each other
