1  Mower Building / Setup Help / Tires / Re: Harden tires without tire oven. on: July 15, 2014, 09:58:28 AM
Simple Green softens tires...It may be the wrong time of year as Al mentioned, but an old truck puller trick is to leave them mounted and set them on the shed roof in the fall. The sun and elements over the winter will harden them up for spring when pulling season starts. That's about the only way to do it without an oven that I know of personally.

Personally I would use 3/4 .058 wall moly, that's just me. And speedway motors sells some really nice u joints made by sweet racing that have needle bearings in them instead of a solid bushed type u joint. ALOT better in the end and they last a lot longer

Another thing to consider, what did you hone your cylinder walls to before putting the new rings in.

Lots of tire kickers and nobody serious about buying. Final price drop is $50 each plus shipping. If they can't go for that I'll put them on eBay soon.

As long as the crank is in that center hole...leaves it up to you

I built all mine out of aluminum. With all the weld in bungs and fill cap from the chassis shop I had around $75 in parts. If ya can't TIG aluminum then you'll have to find someone to do that part too.
I usually made mine so they held a gallon. On a 30 lap race with some of the cautions that always seem to happen I would use up to 3 quarts.

I have no common sense either. That may be why Bert lets me drive his stuff.

I have for sale 2 Wilwood cast aluminum 2 piston caliper with pads for each caliper. Pads are in almost brand new condition with only use being around the driveway. I bought them for a front brake set up I built for my pulling truck but they were not enough and I had to switch to 4 pistons instead. My loss, your gain. Asking $75 each with pads plus shipping. Or both calipers with pads for $125 plus shipping. OBO.
Thanks
Zach

Oil cooler can come off. There are 1" cranks out there if you look, I had a couple but believe I got rid of them all, I will double check though!  The Billets from Midwest are 1 1/8". Roller lifters are by far better than stock stuff, especially if you want to make any horsepower. Factory they are the hydraulic and they suck as far as keeping enough oil in them to stay pumped up. At the very least I would go for a solid/flat tappet type of lifter over the stock hydraulic. They are quite cheap if your trying to do things with lesser money, yet can still work in a camshaft up to 7500-8000 rpm. The rollers just allow for a more aggressive camshaft grind, but with that comes the rest of the valvetrain. I agree with Paul on the pistons, get rid of it. MWSC sells Diamond pistons at a reasonable price, we have had good luck with them in mowers and our pulling truck (4.600 bore @ 9000 rpm).
The freezer idea would be great for putting your ring gear on. I have done several crank gears that way, just don't get caught using moms deep fryer to heat your gears!!  bigsmile
