  1. I just pulled the second piston with 25-30 comp. It also had broken land between the top ring and second ring down. No broken rings or scoring. All cyls. had no ridge on top. As far as the valves go I previously freed up the stuck lifters, lightly lapped the valves, all the adjustments were good, 8 & 11 thou. I also pulled the third piston with 25-30 comp. No broken rings or lands. but the top ring was frozen in grove. I dont know what the previous owner did but the last time it ran was 1975. Just for your update. Thanks
  2. Let me clear up myself. I said zero comp. These four cyl. had had 25 to 30 lbs. comp. I said zero because they may as well been zero. Thanks Ltc
  3. 37 Olds straight 8 flathead. I pulled a piston that had no compression. No rings broke. but a piece of piston between the top ring and second ring down was was broke. About an inch and a half long. Why would that break? No score on cylinder wall. I have three more to pull that had no compression. I will pull them all to replace the rings Thanks for your tips.
  4. For gas tank call 218-326-0463. I got a new one for my 63 Bonne. from them. If you join POCI you get a website and mag. every month with all kinds of contacts and parts. Look up Steve Barrack in AZ. Large Pontiac parts cars.
  5. By that grill could be a LaSalle or Caddy.
  6. When I get ready for a tank for my 37 8cyl Olds I will look at Chevy tanks of that vintage because the filler is in the right fender.
  7. Keep up the good work. I love seeing them go back together.
