Re: torqueing chart

Gerry, I added a Torque Sequence chart for the 14L and 15L engines to the Technical Section page under Manuals & Other Technical Documentation. I used this chart on my own 14L.

Are you still located in the Des Moines area ? If so I have a 1926 Flint Z18 Jr. I am trying to get up and going and am in dire help for information as engine specs etc. for that model seems to be next to impossible to locate. If you could give me any help or direct me to someone that could it would be greatly appreciated. I live in Ames and my phone number is ( 515 ) 233-2076 and my Email address is as follows: stillamcruisin@hotmail.com
Thank you.

Re: torqueing chart

Roger ... caught your posting under wanted section, on Flint F-234 formerly owned by Herman. I am having the Registry updated to show you are now the owner. What I do not have is the engine serial which will start 9L - xxxx , if you would be so kind.

The Flint plant VIN's start at F- 101 to F-1911 to July 31 1926 on the Z-18. The 1927 model year are F-1912 to F-1914 Aug 1 1926 to Aug 28 1928 the plants closing. Flint moved to Elizabeth plant and are E-1915 to E-2218 Aug 29 1926 to model end.

Terje Bratveit in Norway is the Flint advisor flint-norge@durantmotors.org or directly when I email him on vi.ter@online.no

He should be able to help you on the Flint.
