Very cool (no pun intended.)

If there's any photo work you need from my 115c sedan, let me know.

That looks un-fun. Not looking forward to it on my '40 110.

Double check the bearing tightness after driving it a bit. Both sides on my 115c needed another tightening after about 30 miles. Minor, but significant enough.

Rod bolts are definitely larger for the '37 vs. '46 engine. Just seems weird that two engines, built a month or two apart are so different.

I will either need to repair the cracked/broken '46 exhaust manifold, or use the creatively crafted 'dual exhaust' currently on the '40 for the project going forward.

We shall see...

I set them cold, then heated up a couple of them to see if it made one whit of difference.

Not.One.Bit.

One question though for the hive mind, as I'm puzzled by what I'm looking at on three engines I have.

The two engines for the 1940 110 refresh that I'm using date from September and October of 1946, if I'm reading the date codes correctly, but they are 'different' with respect to the number and type of bolt hold downs for the manifolds. The engine in the 1940 110 I believe is original, but I've not yet dug into that as it's covered up and outside for the winter.

The '40 engine and the October 1946 engine have a combination of short- and longer studs to hold the manifolds in place. The September 1946 date code engine has all short studs, which includes two short studs on the far ends of the exhaust manifold which penetrate into the water jacket apparently, which I think matches the layout on the 237CI engine in the '37 115c.

Any idea why these 1946 engines are so different?

Years ago was pulling parts off an Austin Healey Sprite in a wrecking yard.

Opened up the door; was interested in pulling the hardtop off and buying it and the windshield frame.

Ever smell a decomposing cat?

Yeah. Passed on the hardtop and anything to do with the interior. Changed clothes in the garage and showered for an hour to get rid of that smell.

When I saw the original picture I thought that it looked like Central Valley dust and grime. (BIL and SIL live in Visalia, so anything outside for any period of time quickly goes ag-dirt beige)

[Q]I agree, adjust them cold, it's not worth the aggitation or the burns and losing your faith in God to do it while the car's running or the manifold is hot.[/Q]

Oh I've been tested before. There's precious little ahead of me that would cause me to lose faith in Him.

Please note, I do not own any Japanese or European motor vehicles however.
