I am spraying UV dye on the main saddles, camshaft tunnel and lifter valley. Is there any crack prone area in particular I need to check for?

Re: Removing Stuck Pistons In A 1960 430 MEL

This is not the super thick cores I have read about but the thickest I have seen in person. The 61 C1VE 430 was a safe .030 bore with core shift in the same area as this 1960 B9ME casting.

Re: Stuck 1960 MEL

Friday more heat and hammering did nothing. Two things you want to be weary of when beating out pistons. One is not to beat on the combustion side to the point of concaving the piston spreading it and causing it to wedge tighter. Another thing to be mindful of when beating out stuck pistons is the r...

Soaked overnight with WD40. http://i1237.photobucket.com/albums/ff469/white65ford/196...

Removing Stuck Pistons In A 1960 430 MEL & Sonic Test Result

Bought this from a 58 Lincoln. The heads and intake were gone but it looked like the hood has stayed closed for the most part. Been soaking diesel in the cylinders for a 3 weeks. Today I wire wheeled the tops and cylinders then hit it with a rosebud. Beat pistons with a 2x4 and a dead blow as it coo...

Re: 59 mercury 383 crank driven ps pump

The below pump from my 63 Lincoln is like the two bolt/two alignment dowl you were sent. The second picture down is a 59 Lincoln power steering pump that is a independent bracket mounted Eaton unit. I know where another 59 Lincoln is that I might buy and part out. If I buy it I will let you know whi...

Deleting The 63 Power Steering Pump

I am putting the engine in my pickup and do not need the power steering pump. I also have a 58 MEL. Is it as simple as swapping front covers out and using the 58 pulleys?
Thanks
