Re: broke head bolts

Time to remove motor and take to a machine shop for advice unless you are really experieced. Then your questions can be answered by very knowledgable persons.
My 2 cents!

Re: Residual pressure valve? (wilwood 260-3279)

I'm rebuilding my brakes from top to bottom, and from what I can tell the master cylinder on our '49s doesn't leave a little pressure in the line. More modern cars with rear drums have a little pressure to keep the shoes nice and close to the drums. Checking out wilwood's page http://wilwood.com/Ma...

Re: Dying

Repair manuel on fuel pumps:
4-5 1/2 lbs. at carb- pressure
5-6 oz. fuel, line disconnected at carb into catch can with 15 fuel pump strokes= 30 rotations of motor (cam turns at 1/2 speed of crank). Fuel volume.

Fairly easy to test.
