Finishing up with the High Comp. head installation
got the head off.... to do this you loosen the head nuts just about an 1/8 of an inch and then turn the motor over (not by hand) and it will pop the head loose
old head gasket... copper
ya know... no matter what you do.. there is always that one bolt, in this case a stud, that just doesnt want to come out...
top view before cleaning
it was burning great!
old water pump
got the head all cleaned up... just chasin the threads
all the valves had ford on them... 78 year old valves...
touched up the paint and it made all the difference
you have to put new studs in ALWAYS if you take the head off for any reason
cleaned... painted... new studs... new high performance model B gasket
so much cleaner
me workin on my baby
lowered an 1 & 1/2... looks alot better
i added my little detail touch on the fan blade.. like the old bombers had on the propeller..
another little touch of mine... i love small detail stuff like that.. and i love to see if people notice
it looks amazing!!!
this is just a cool picture!!! that exhaust manifold gasket has got to go though.. i have a much better one i need to put on
sooooo much better looking
so fresh and so clean
WOW!!! that made a huge difference
my heater... new hoses... touched up fan blade
