  2. Thanks for the input, think I'll go with maybe 1+ lbs of pressure. You guys are a fountain of knowledge, now can someone direct me to the Fountain of Youth?
  3. How much, if any, cooling system pressure should a late 30's early 40's flathead, straight eight have. Trying a DIY radiator repair and thought I'd pressure test it with air, WITHOUT blowing it apart. Any Help?
  4. Can someone explain the timing marks on my 39 Stude 250 cu in straight 8. UDC 3-6 about 4" around the balancer, UDC 1-8 about 2" away INOP 1-8. I know UDC= TDC
