    Tuning engines can be a mysterious art, all engines need a precise balance of fuel, air, and timing in order to reach their true performance potential. At that point, we sent the cam back and developed the TilTech V8 cam. The Mercury 8CM cam had a lift of 0. The downside was, as Flathead Engineering's Charlie Clark puts it, street rods "began to look about as exciting as a belly-button-everyone had one.

    It is easy to get more lift by increasing the duration, and yet, many of the performance cams have less lift than the 8CM. The author describes a range of Flathead engine combinations that achieve realistic horsepower figures that will assist the reader in achieving their own positive results. If your spark plugs come in one or two surface clockwise the plug right in the spark plugs with a major firing order the wire turns as the first more turns for too much you should be sure it in place. Share your build info and Dyno results with friends on Facebook, Twitter and others. Post your MAP file with your build and share it with others.

    Grinding the seats on a wet bench would be nice, but the sheer bulk of a block prevents that, so it will have to be done the old fashioned way, dry, on the floor. As you increase the duration you will increase the peak horsepower, but you will lose some low end torque. The charge of a both exhaust socket and twist the whole time. Honing with a torque plate is highly recommended if it is available.

If you can find a Mercury 8CM cam, that would be a good option. The myth of the ' C probably got started because all these engines did have counterbalanced crankshafts and the letter C cast into the head.

This usually leads to the valves leaking more readily than if they had not been lapped. In How to Build the High Performance Street Flathead book, we regard Ed Winfield as one of our personal heroes.

Heads play an essential role in flowing fuel and producing maximum horsepower, and therefore receive special treatment. See all 41 photos Somewhere in the middle is the largest group: Potential street rodders who just want reasonably fast hot rods without having a cookie-cutter, car.

For even more protection, install a crossflow radiator and increase coolant system pressure to pounds.
