  • White Powered Dictator: Engine Video

    I got the engine freed up, and turning with the starter. If you will click the link, and watch the video, you will notice that not all of the valves are closing. The intake valves of cylinder 1 & 6 are not closing at all, and a few of the other valves are not sitting down all the way. I tried to fire up the engine before I noticed this, and it backfired through the carburetor, which was confusing at the time, but makes perfect sense now that I know the intake valves were stuck open.
    I will have another video of the engine later when its running. Just a side note, check out the massive stroke of this thing, those pistons just disappear down into the bores.

    Just cuz I'm simple-minded, did you try tapping those two valves with a LFH?

      not sure what an lfh is, I'm terrible with acronyms, but I did tap them with a hammer, and they popped shut, but upon rotating the engine, they opened again, and stayed open. I'm gonna douse them with PB Blaster, and hopefully that will free them up.

        LFH would be a little FH.

            That's a problem with acronyms. Too many possible interpretations, or no understanding at all. trouble, trouble.

            LFH -- a small device for striking unmoveable objects to make them move a small amount. I have NO idea what the F is for......

              We would do better to leave off trying to disguise profanity and just say big hammer. It confuses the new folks.

                Bob, I believe that 'F' stands for 'Fonzie'.
