  1. Hello Sir, I have sinse learned that my "unknown" engine is a 1940 or 1941, The multi piece crank is actually a regular crank with Welch Plugs. It is so neatly machined that with the plugs installed it looks like it's several pieces machined and fit together. I am in Fort Smith Arkansas. I don't have any parts that I am interested in selling at this time. I don't know where you could find a crank for your engine. You may try to chat with PEECHER on this site. He commented on this post. He may be able to help you find the crank,and he is full of knowledge on these motors. goood luck, Stay
  2. Peecher, Thanks for the message, My email is jamie.boyster (at) yahoo.com
  3. I have done a lot of investigating, I have learned a lot about these engines and all the shortfalls in the overall design. The engine I WILL build will be used as a daily driver and will likely be driven about 20K miles per year. This is my plan so far, Please review this and tell me what you think and add anything I may not know about. Thanks, Jamison. 1945 292CID V-12. Using repair sleeves reduce the bore to the 2-3/4 size of the 267 engine but use a .040 over piston that will put my overall displacement at 275.1CID. ( still don't know for sure if the wrist pin is the same, Stroke is t
  4. I have two engines, One is build date 9-11-45, The other may possibly be a '47 or '48? DETAILS: Both engines are 292CID. Both have three swelled out spots along each side that are very visible with the oil pan removed, and visible but not real noticeable with the pan on. These swells have what looks like freeze plugs in the bottom on the pan gasket surface. On the '45 model the swells are two different sizes, the ones on each end are smaller than the middle one, The plug sizes are aproximately 4 each at 1" diameter. (I did not measure them that's a guess) and 2 each at 1-1/4" possibly.
  5. I have two engines, One is build date 9-11-45 and it has the traditional style Crankshaft and Flywheel. The other is build date unknown, I believe it's possibly a '47 model because the bearings appear to have a date on them (8-47). This engine has a multi-piece crankshaft, It's several pieces machined and fit together. The flywheel looks more like a Clutch pressure plate than a Flywheel. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, My Question: Which is better? Is this crank or flywheel junk? and anything I may need to know to use them for standard duty, long life? Thanks in advance, Jamison. P.S. both engines are 292
  6. Hello all, I am new here. I have two v-12's one is build date 9-11-45 and has the traditional type Crank and Flywheel. The other is a '48 model I think, The crank is several pieces put together and has a flywheel that looks more like a pressure plate. My question is, What is the difference? Whats better? and will the parts enterchange? For instance, I was hoping to trade the cranks between the two motors because one really needs rebuilt and the other can be cleaned up and ran but ONLY if the cranks will trade out. Thanks very much in advance. Jamison. <DL id=profile10535 class=postprofile&g

I have two V-12's, I want to totally rebuild one of them. I have done a lot of homework and I'm very aware that this will cost me around $7000. It seems worth it to me. This is my plan and I hope for some opinions about what I intend to do. Engine DOB 9-11-45, displacement 292CID. Keep in mind that I am not after HP, I want life expectancy Put Ductile Iron repair sleeve
