Well last weekend at Macon, I took three mowers. Two ran pretty decent, but the BP broke before I could get it on the track. All FOUR steel push rods got bent. Question is has anyone had this happen before and what are the possible causes?? Last was set at .004 intake and exhaust. Heads are shaved .050, EC alum roller rockers, dual valve springs with billet retainers, and new head gaskets. Rpms probably not over 6000 because return springs would not let it open fully. Comments appreciated.
Anyone interested in New old stock 19 series flatheads? I have a source for several that have been stored, never started, with code numbers 94 to 99. Some with electric start , some manual. Reply or PM me.
Does anybody know if the cams from precision for the intek series "44" have the end drilled for the oil pump rod? I have one on the way and just considered that it would. It would be a shame to send it back as soon as it comes in for more machine work, might delay my build a little.
