taking a leak

If the leak is on the manifold side, it may be at the coolant passages into the intake. The L 20 B are difficult to get at and tighten.

May cooler heads prevail

First, is it overheating, or is it just the gauge saying so? Does it actually boil over? Second, is the system in working order? Coolant full, system flushed, belt tight, unobstructed rad, motor timed properly, Third, does it overheat only at high speed, or at idle too. At high speed the pump can ca...

Is this the valve that adjusts hot water flow through the heater and do you have a pix?. Manufacturers like to use off the shelve items they already have in stock. This valve may also have been used on the 210's 710's even 620 trucks (with slight alterations). Take the old one with you and check out...

they should match correctly w/o the need for it.
So what you're saying is that you shouldn' have to balance, but it wouldn't hurt if you did?

can you handle the pressure?

Hey, heirfaus. My L 20 B ( high milage) reads nearly the same as yours when cold. Hot idle is a little over 1 Kg. per centimeter squared, metric 720 truck gauge reading. I did the conversion and it works out to about 15 psi. Around 50 psi hot running. I suppose new rod and main bearings would raise ...

I don't really get how its possible. But the big explosion in the begining is a nice touch. Does anyone remember the Hurst Hemi Under Glass? It was an early Barracuda with a long sloping back window. A 426 hemi was installed under this window, behind the driver and above the differential. The front...

re:Jason Grey's Frankenmotor

Have to ask: with the exception of pistons that are cut down, would any or all of the rest of these mix 'n match motors require balancing of their reciprocating parts? For example, L 20 B rods on Z 22 S crank with KA 24 pistons. This would be a great build-up but I would like to keep it simple.

We now have variable valve timing, what we need is variable intake port diameter. Throw in variable length too! An intake that morphs.

32/36 holly

Good new info for me burtvorgon, knew about ford & jets only. Wonder if float might interchange to other 32/36's. Found 5 assorted carbs: manual, water choke, electric, G.M., holley... got them for a case of beer!
Should be able to mix-n match one good one.

Carb mounting

I know the L series motors do need an adapter, the A series most likely will too! Find out from someone before you start making plans.

The new hainz manual

BTW, got my new copy of the L-20 hainz manual, sat up last night and read half way through it. I specially like the moving pictures.

Have a W53 head (courtesy of Haines) after removing the liner, we found that quite a large amount of welding & grinding would be needed to get good flow in the exhaust. We were after round exhausts ala the FIA head. Not worth the effort. It was not the head we thought it was. Did not know that W-53...
