HAD ISSUES WITH ROD BEARINGS

SO Here is the latest on the ROD BEARING issue,

The problem revolved around the sizing of the rod journals, the ".010" over bearings a and 2 replacement 39 rods ordered in for pin bushing issues.

1. The crank was turned .010 under and I did not realize 37 .010 bearings are not available. ( MY MISS, not the suppliers) This resulted in purchasing 39 and up .010 over bearings.

2. During reassembly the Mains worked very well, As discussed above there were issues with the rods.
The final answer to this is,,, The .010. bearings were the same size of the journals, actually I believe they were about .001 smaller ID than the OD of the journal.

3. Back to CUSTOM CRANK , Bill did a GREAT job in resizing the journals to fit the replacement rods and bearings to correct fitment,

4. While at CUSTOM CRANK Bill identified the 39 rods were a touch too thick and sized the one he had.

5. 39 rods are heaver than 37 rods,

6. Reassembled all rod caps with bearings, Flat sanded the sides of the rods and matched to the 37's, removed some material from the sides of the 39 rods ( casting excess) until all 6 with pistons matched in weight.


Cost for this repair, 2 hours shop time and materials, about the same to as the crank turned the first time and a new set of rod bearings since the set I was installing got messed up.


LESSON LEARNED,,,,, Verify , ( the info was printed on the .010. I just missed it,,,,,,) Get your rods bearings etc gathered up then have the crankshaft turned to spec.

Bypass oil filter install on the 37 6 cyl.

Ebay purchase of the canister / mount for a 50's "Packard".

With several members input and photos I designed this mount and piping configuration.

I accessed the front port o n the oil gallery

While I had the timing chain covers removed I was able to run the feed pipe behind the backing plate, I used a piece of rubber tubing to protect the line from rubbing on the plate or block.

I decided to use the Oil filler pipe as the return point so if in the future the filter is removed than there was no hole in the block.

The inlet to the filter has a 1/16 reducer to reduce the possible loss of oil pressure.

ADMIN ; please rotate pictures, Thank Larry

Larry, thanks for sharing the story and photos. The engine looks great.

Now would be a good time to mark the damper with timing marks and install a pointer on the front cover. I did this with my 115C and it made setting the timing much easier than using the port under the starter and marks on the flywheel. Just a suggestion.

Please let us know how the start-up goes.

Well it's been a while since I did an update.
So. Long story shortened.
I ended up with a faulty "reman distributor"
Found after many checks on everything but the distributor.
In the process I warped the head and the grandson assisted in the removal for reworking.
The chrome shop sent the front bumper to another customer. The lost my center bumper guard,
I found a usable core guard at David Moe's summer garage sale. Along with a wiper motor and Reman fuel pump.
Also had the speedometer start squealing
during a test drive so had that serviced.

Also added a couple of still shots.
Hopefully not upside down. ;)
