Re: IWtb Low Head

Why mill the high head?- it will still look like a high head and you won't be changing the CR that much. Probably best to just wait for a low head to become available. Just my thoughts.

Re: Buick piston used in Model T??

Using 292 pistons requires cutting and welding the connecting rod if you use A rods. Plus, they have very little dome on them so your compression ratio is going to suffer.

Re: Pan straightening

Langs has had the castings available for the 4th main locating cone, the bracket that locates the cone and the bracket for the front to check the hand crank bore. I'm not sure if they still offer these, but its worth a check if you have a jig that's missing parts.

Re: WTB: early auto camp items

Here is a running board cooler that is in pretty nice shape for its age- had it up on the shelf for way too long and should belong to someone who can put it to better use. Cloth is in great shape other than a few stains. If anyone is interested, send me a PM.

Re: Scat Stroker crank question

That's huge for the limited time on the engine. If its the writ pins, I would check the hardness on the pins- they may have not been heat treated correctly. 2nd question- what head was this running with. T size wrist pins will not take high compression ratios without excessive wear after a while. I'...

Re: $ Difference Between Replacing Broken Crankshaft w/ stock crank or a Model A or B or Scat crank?

The longer stroke of the A crank should provide more torque, not less. There are so many more things that affect and influence engine performance than just the change in stroke that I don't think you can realistically come to the conclusion that you would loose hill climbing ability, but . . . . . j...

Your plan is pretty much spot on. Be aware that heat in your dam area will tend to distort the pan, but your pan jig will fix that.
