Looking good :thumbup: Though I don't care for the old rope seals if you can get a lip seal :hmmm: Give you back a bit more power too! :nod:

I may be old but I love new technology .... :mrgreen:

I have ordered a new (Modern) seal... :mrgreen:
I'll show it when I get it..

A rope seal will work without leaking and last a long time. Still the later style seal's are just that much better! :nod:

You are indeed correct as this seal has never leaked and it looked good when I took it our.
BUT
It was installed by a professional and I is certainly ant one O dem… :?

This will be my 4 rear main seal install and I don’t count the first 3 as that was 50 years ago and I had my twin brother helping…

So just call me chicken little cuz i dont mind.
I is going for what I consider the easiest… :mrgreen:

I installed the oil rings for piston # 1-2-3 and 4 over the boss facing the thrust bearing pointing at rear of engine.
The # 5 and 6 over the boss facing thrust bearing pointing at front of engine.
Image
The scrapers and compression rings at 45º relative to oil rings.

I use Quickseat on the cylinders. I believe you can see the cylinder walls are a greenish color.

wish me luck... :wink:

Good luck keep up the excellent work. :thumbup: Years ago seen pictures of the special tool they made to install rope seals round stock with shaft to pound it in. I have always installed the rope seal's just using a big socket side ways to push it in and than tap it a gently with a hammer to seat it. After that trim ends with single edge razor blade or other sharp knife. Never had a new install leak. :nod:

I'm gonna think about that. It's the cutting the ends that causes me concern..
If I'm to short or to long, slight angle ?????

It's real easy with a razor blade start at inside edge with blade about 30 degrees and resting on block’s parting line slice it back and forth as like a saw. It may take second cut to get it trimmed flat even with block. I know you can do it. :nod:

Well how does this look… for starters..

This is as hard as I could push down on the crank and I see a crack at the bearings.
When I torque this down will it make a better seal at the end joints?

it took a half box of razor blades to cut this sucker..

if this dont look good enough , say so. ya ant going to hert my feelings.. :mrgreen:

hahahahahh Hey woodbutcher… now that is funny.. heck I’m glad you asked why..
When we were kids my dad always told us..

“”Son in this world there are only 2 GATES…
The Fast Gate
And
The Slow GATE..
Both of you two boys are always coming out the slow GATE””

It wasn’t until after we got out of the Corps that we realized what that GATE was all about. He was an avid gambler on horse racing…. Darn good at it to..

So I is still always coming out that darn old slow GATE.
It has been drilled in me by someone that really knows the difference… :mrgreen:

Your Grandfather is steel on target… and I wont forget “”Better slow and sure..”” :thumbup:

That seal install looks good enough to me from over here :hmmm: Only other thing you might do is polish up the crank’s area were that seal rubs against (if the cam is in) than your ready to lay the crank and finish up the rest of short block. :thumbup:

Thank you bubba…
I did notice the surface area and it did not have a worn seal type grove.
I didn’t think to polish it. I will use some emery cloth.
Good catch…. :thumbup:

The cam is in just waiting to settle the bolt issue with it... :?

By the way.. I will wait for the new rear seal to come in…
This rope seal has me on the ropes.. :mrgreen:

Good oil priming tool for the early inline six.
Use the original oil pump Intermediate Shaft:
Use 1/4" 8mm 6 point socket:
Use Long 1/4” x 6” extension and cut the ratchet end off.:

Works grrrrrrreat… :thumbup:

You can get a new Intermediate shaft HERE

Hey echo, the only thing I'd add to your oil-pump priming tool is some electrical tape to the joints. It really sucks when you drop a piece of it in the pan....BTDT.

Aren’t you going to use a later distributor? IE like a 68 up points type, a DSII or DUI. If so the 1101 would be better chose and save you some work modding them. In the case that you are keeping the LOD dist. only the center carb needs a hookup the end carbs would be plugged.

MPG it was always about Tri Carbs

The whole reasoning for this build was to go with a tri carb set up.
At that time mike said he would have a tri carb manifold ready before I was ready.

Well that did not go as plan. Mike doesn’t know when he will have a tri setup ready.
So I go with plan B.

That is with the log head modified and the ofy tri carb manifold.
I believe the Autolite 1100 will fit with out having to drop the engine or cut the hood.

I will machine a plug for the SCV… because I could not get 3 1100 w/o the SCV..

If and when Mike ever comes out with a tri carb manifold and I’m still kicking I will use it.

Mean while I have a Tri Carb set up with good eye candy and some increase in performance..

My original objective.. :mrgreen:
Man I'm so easy to work with... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Yea I forgot to note that small 400.00 detail... :mrgreen:

I could get only one 1101 and I did not want to mix and match. I will be using a DUI.
I will also be running all 3 carbs as one unit.

I believe these carbs are rated around 180 CFM? So running all three together will allow me to get peak performance at all throttle from idle to WOT..

MPGs is not one of my objectives
whata ya thunk..??? :mrgreen:

I have always liked a multi carb set up and especially tri power so my vote is too go for it, :nod: might be slightly more time at first to get the tune just right. :hmmm: You could always swap out the straight linkage for progressive if dose not work as well as you like. Have been hunting for a couple Holley 1904 cores (glass bowels) for the old 54 “223” six project it will also be straight linkage. :thumbup:

Double Flair 3/16 “ Break Lines

CobraSix gave me the idea to change my single cylinder master cylinder to a dual cylinder. Thank ya CobraSix.
I took pix of the change over but I cant find where I put them.
But CobraSix has a good review HERE

I used 3/16 “ CNF-3B Cunifer Alloy Brake Line from FEDHILL

The use of FEDHILL idea came from jdn21758. Thank you jdn21758 it works great…

I had the good fortune of growing up wid a twin brother. I could never tape and float an inside corner. I could never get a good double flair using the tube cutter.
My brother could tape and float an inside corner fast, sharp as a tack and smooth as silk. He could also make a double flair using the normal tube cutter with one eye closed, the other eye staring at me and laughing his (buttock) off.. at me.. :mrgreen:

Any way this is how I dun did it and I don’t see any leaks..

I started here.. Thank you CobraSix..
Image

Image
As you can see my tube cut sucked big time. So I fell back on my trusty ban saw. Good straight cut.

Image
1: File burs off and straight.
2: File a good chamfer
3 & 4: I Used 500 grit and repeated 1 & 2:

Image
The left image is flushed to top of fitting or miss slightly on the low side.
Right side with fitting in place and a drop of oil.

Image
1: With fitting centered ready to shape this guy.
2: Compressed until fitting is flush with holding tool.

Image
1: I removed the 1 st flair tool then applied oil to the head and compressed until I ran out of strength.
2: What I ended up wid..

Image
Another look at the results. On the right side you can see the only mark the tool left. Not bad at all for me any way..

Image
My Prototype. Man I like high-plooten words… Worked great.

Image
A plastic bottle of liquid tape and I had a perfect form.

Image
Finished and in place. Don’t look half bad..

Looks good :thumbup: But is that a copper line? :shock: If so it's not a good idea for brake lines :nod:

Nice job on the double flair, I always have trouble with that.
But I haven't used oil so that may be the ticket.
And a better tool would help too... :lol:

Is that copper brake line easier to flair?

Hi echo1955,

Interesting :oopsie: so thanks to you I learned about something new. :hmmm:

You are doing a clean job on your Mustang build up. Looks like you will be ready to go for a cruise real soon.

Hey JackFish.. how ya doing.. Better tool always make better helpers..
Light oil is an important key. Without it the flair gets small scarring and can leads to leaks and looks crappy to boot.

All I ever double flared before was steel and that was 30 years ago. I don’t recall it ever being to hard once I started using the ban saw. This copper looking line was easy but it took me some strength to get it.

Younger folks with more strength would probably walk right through it..
This is for sure. Shaping it is FIRM but walks circles around steel and forget SS.

This is my PS bracket.. in it’s normal position

Image
But it interferes with my DUI distributor. I need some clearance as seen in the photo.

Image
By pivoting on the bottom bolt you can see where a new bolthole will go at #2.
Then I have to fabricate a piece at the top mount #1.

Image
Then reshape the bottom mount at circle…

This should workout ok..

Hey jdn you may not believe this..
But…… I say BUT
One fine day I was just searching the web for a local Mustang Club to join here in the Phoenix area.

I accidentally tripped over the Classic Inline site thinking it might have some info on Classic Car Clubs.

One keystroke lead to another… then I stumbled into your thread with the Tri Carb Set Up…

Other than that
today I would be driving my boring Fastback to car shows with a dull 1v carb… :mrgreen:

So thank you again jdn… :thumbup:
