Boy looks like you have it nicely prepped there George, just like brand new.

Looking good George!!
Have you checked the block deck for true??
I always run a large bastard file diagonally etc. on the deck of cast
iron blocks to check for high (shiny ) and low ( not shiny ) spots.

Thanks
Randy

Hi

I got a 1935 ford V8.

I'm been struggling with carbon build up which also resulted in sticking valves.

I now there general is lot of doubts but I tried Marvel Mystery Oil in my gas with success.

Problem is gone and its running very smoothly and quiet.....

Carl and Pete, you guys are absolutely right. I learned a very long time ago to work to work more with the brain and less with the body and yes she is very very heavy. Cheers. George.

GOOOOOOOD !!!! You should try the HEI distributor they make for your engine ! The spark quality is much better and my engine runs smoother than ever !

 Mike, i appreciate the info but i converted to PERTRONIX electronic conversion about 16 years ago on this engine. I would only recommend the original points to the birds. I have converted every car i have owned for the last 20 years. Cheers. George
