    Cylinder head came back from the shop friday. Casting ear at the rearmost cylinder was broken clean off, valve guides are cut undersize so the seals don't fit, and the valve job has seat heights uneven.

    Crap.

      nothing worse than giving some shitcunt your hard earned to get a bad job. is the broken casting ear a deal breaker?

      I didn't realise for about 15 mins as it never broke the speed limit.

        Nothing is truly ever broken when you own a welder.

        Somethings might be better if you didn't, but this is not one of them. I'll braze the ear back on, so it'll have one bronze ear on the iron head, but it'll stay put and be hard enough to work out fine, I think. Just shopping around for a used cylinder head, 500-1000$ depending on what part of the country you are in.

        So, yeah, it'll get fixed, but it's work I'd rather not have had to do.

That means the crank rotates a full 120 degrees between cylinder firing impulses. By contrast, most typical V8 engines send a piston down the hole every 90 degrees. On the negative side, that means the six's crank must rotate a full 120 degrees before there is another power stroke. But on the positive side, each power stroke has 30 degrees of extra time to put energy (i.e., torque) into the crankshaft. That's why straight-sixes generally deliver more low-end torque than comparably sized V8s—all other factors being equal.

                      Hide and watch me. I've only been working on it since 2016 and still don't have a rear axle, transmission, or engine in it. And in the years since I started, the glass is missing, it has no wheels, no brakes, no axle, no hood, and no seats.

                          Something like that. One car at a time, though.

                            Just about got the head repaired and couldn't resist doing a little portwork. There isn't much to show, just taking out casting ridges and a little brazing work to fix the broken off ear.

                            Ernest is fighting with the main bearings, apparently he's unable to get the crank to fit the new bearings. I've recommended a set of measuring tools...we'll see how it goes. Once it's assembled to satisfaction, we'll finish reassembly and get it running on the OEM carburetor, then the turbo setup will go on after the new cam and bearings are broken in.

                            One of these days I'll get around to finishing my new truck transmission-one more linkage bar and it's ready to fill and bolt up. Then, supercharged datsun, supercharged truck, and turbocharged maverick 1.
