This has been posted over and over.

But. Did the air vent ever get discussed.

If the plate and body are warped . or anything that lets the gears pull air from the vent tube.

I have not seen vents in other pumps.

Is that vent for vacuum pump. Been awhile since I've seen complete 56 pump.

I had a machine shop face the seats. They put the guides in. Used a quick way driver to put guides in.

And they were a bitch to pull back. I used the same. All thread had to get b 7 grade. Other was snapping.

And I had to buy a ream. Cause the new guides aren't as thick at ends as old ones. So pulling on end closed it a bit.

I used brass on the end. And the tip still closed.

When you get to the valve clusters . Mr pushbutton was repairing the valve rocker needles/ rollers.

The rocker shafts Packard used a long plug. But as far as I know you can't get them. Only the Dorman type. I think I used 2. Per end. And I might drill the end to put a pin in. I have an uneasy feeling with those Dorman plugs.


My dad's 12 engine I have on hold. Dealing with my 56.

And. Things around the house keep popping up.

My next thing on the 12 is valve clearance.. Which is critical. Whatever clearance my dad used..that engine was quiet.

Packard gives the high and low. I'll be in mark Claytons clearance.

One thing that can cause that is the sector insulation wore a groove and the finger got stuck.

The fix is to epoxy some phenolic and file it same height and curve of sector.

Look at the fingers.

Orange wire and pink wire.

It's best to remove the motor. If you can.


And make this test set up

Thanks

Ross the crack goes from journal up the counter weight.

I have a 20 under crank. Ready to go ..so will probably use that.

The phone just would not get a good shot.


Another question.


With the oil problems. Why would someone groove the cam.

Could be a few areas.

Shift relay.

Sector.

Fingers.

Connectors.

PB buttons.


If you can. Make up the test light for push button

It helps..

Hh56 should reply.. And he can add more in depth

Jack.

This is 56 super motor. Which someone bored out to 4-1/8.

Fits in oil pan.

They also balanced the Pistons. The car was a 56 patrician with 3 on the tree. Std trans put in.

Car is to rusty to save. So the frame I am making a torsion display out of it.

And this engine I am putting in mine . I have a knock in my engine so swapping..
