I was checking and the Geo Metro has a 1 L engine. I may pick some up after work and  tinker with it tonight.


yep the geo bearing are what i have looked into also, you can get undersized rod bearing, my local napa give me all the specs of the bearing for the geo let me know if they work for you i still need to put the rods back in my motor.

Sorry meanmachine I just can't type today  lol what I meant to say was with the undersized bearing did it fit the rod without cutting or the crank journal without cutting? I just checked and the price around here for a 91 Geo metro runs about $33.

Last I knew, there is a 42 pressure lube still for sale in Kalamazoo, MI for 100 bucks...  The 46 pressure lube he had went fast though.  :-)  The owner is a member here, and has posted them for sale at least once, possibly twice so far.  I'll get it when finances permit, unless one of you guys does first.  I really don't care if it's pressure or splash, in fact I'm looking for 46's of the splasher persuasion, mostly.

Sorry Garry that's the one I'm getting.  doh he said he will bring it to me so he can break in his new engine in his car. I told him I would give him $50 for gas. I don't know if its 46 or 42? It doesn't  matter to me as long as it is a pressure lube.
I'm building a 42 splash but what concerns me is I have the engine sitting where the cylinders face front and back of the mower and the Carb sticks out of the hood on the left which puts the oil slinger on the left side of the engine. What's got me a little concerned is that when I go into a turn the oil goes to the right side of the sump pan and the splasher can't get enough oil to sling. So far I haven't had an issue but a pressure lube would make me feel better

Sorry for not replying sooner. The pop up piston does not effect flow. The flow comes from the vacuum made by the piston travelling down the cylinder. Do not cut flow to increase compression by shaving the head. My pistons came out .090 of the block under the wedge and had .015 squish. I also remove much material from the block at the top of the cylinder. I open up the area between the valves and the cylinder right down to .010 above the top of the top piston ring. The pop up barely starts to recover what I remove. My engine builds just a little over 80 lbs of compression when starting but builds 180 lbs at about 3300-3600, don't know about higher as It won't turn much over that while only firing on one cylinder. I build my single flatheads the same way.

Lester the popout does affect the engine. It affects flame travel. If the head and piston are not modified correctly after poping the piston out it will kill flame travel wich will kill hp and it will also affect flow. The engine will be a weaser on the top end. A properly designed combustion chamber on a flathead will be able to support 120+psi cranking and still turn big rpm and make hp. 80psi is very low in my opinion. That engine would make more hp and torque if you got the compression up. You can verify the engine is efficent by checking the flame travel markings on the piston after running the engine a while.

Very cool!  It is going to someone that really wants a pressure lube.  Alex told me the 46 went right away, but he still had the 42, so it is almost certainly a 42.  Glad you got it; now it need not haunt my thoughts!   lol

Thanks Garry. I will put it to good use  Wink to get the engine to fit under the hood of a new Holland s8 you have to turn the engine sideways or you will have to cut most of the up to get it to fit and I don't want to cut it.
