  1. Hello, how much vacuum at idle should the pump generate? Also I do not see anyplace for the vacuum hose from the wiper motor to hook to the intake manifold. Does anyone have a picture? Thanks in advance.

    Greg, during original assembly wouldn't the connecting rods be assembled from coming down from the top?

    Greg, yes I have been in touch with Dave, very knowledgeable and he sent me a copy of the manual he has. I was looking for something that shows the head coming off. I assume the head is separate from the cylinders and that the cylinders are separate from the lower block?

    1938 Pontiac 6 cylinder cam question.

    I pulled the head found all the intake valves are sticking. I have been spraying carb cleaner and parts cleaning fluid into the valve openings then cranking have 4 out of 6 snapping shut. I will update later. And the spark plug is located over the intake valve on this one.

    1938 Pontiac 6 cylinder cam question.

    I take it that the intake valve is just below the plug opening? If they are stuck what is the best way to go about freeing them up?

    1938 Pontiac 6 cylinder cam question.

    It ran a couple weeks ago. All the valves stuck?? I don't think so. The timing marks on the timing gears are still aligned.
  13. Ok so the car ran fine went to start it up and it sounded as if it had no compression. So I pulled the pulls to look into the cylinders while cranking nothing moving. I assumed that i broke the timing chain or gears. I pulled the timing cover only to find everything intact as should be and still in alignment. Then I think about pulling dist. cap off then crank only to find that the distributor is turning. then i run a compression test no compression. Am I missing something?? Thanks in advance.
