    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.
  6. 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.

    1928 Pierce Arrow ignition question.

    hello all, we just got a 28 series 36 in. 6 cylinder dual ignition. The previous owners has one set of plugs hooked to the " double" ignition pull switch and the other set to a toggle switch laying in the glove box left of the column. Does anyone know the correct wiring for it? I am thinking that the toggle wires should go to the keyed switch but it is seized up so they went this route. Thanks in advance!

    I understand what you are saying we also found the serial number on the frame as well. We literally got boxes of old photos and newspaper articles about this car. We have an original 1911 Model T Torpedo in collection as well.
