Re: Timing

Jim,

Here is a torque chart that I use, it gives the torque for grade #2-#5 and #8....Personaly I wouldn' go much over 35 lb, for a 7/16" studs/bolts..... after installing a few helicoils in these old cast blocks I like to error on the light side....http://constructionmisc.tpub.com/TM-5-3710-200-13P/css/TM-5-3710-200-13P_22.htm

Bill
Thanks again. I was thinking 45 ft. lbs so I will go your way. I hope to hear it running in the next week or so. May be back to you if I run into difficulties.

Re: Timing

Hi Bill:
Just to let you know that I fired it up yesterday and it ran great. First time it has run in 47 years. If you are interested, check out my project on www.jimmys-durant.com and go to the last page video. You can see it running. Thanks for you interest.

Re: Timing

Jim,

Yes, It's always fun bringing life back in these old engines after setting for so many years....Be sure and re-torque the head after it has been ran a bit and warmed up....Looking at pictures on your site it appears that you had as much a problem digging your Durant out of that barn as I did my Flint when I bought it a couple months back.
