    Fuel Tank Sender

    I have my tank off, giving it a clean up. It looks better on the inside than the out which makes me think the previous owner bought a new one from ďTankautoĒ just before giving up on the...

    4606
    Thanks all. I ended up going with Allis. It’s sort of like archeology cleaning the thing up, near as I can tell it’s been painted twice since original.
  4. Fram Orange, is it Chevy Engine or Allis-Chalmers?

    Iím getting around to buttoning up my engine after blowing a head gasket on my CJ3B. It occurred to me while I had so much stuff off of it, I should repaint what I can. I sort of feel like a kid...

    In a similar vein, I sent my radiator in to see about getting an estimate for rebuilding. It turns out that rebuilding it will cost me about the same as buying a new one from KW. I'd like to...

    On a similar thread, I need a new radiator. A local shop says they can re-core my original for about $550 --estimated before pressure checking to see if it's a more minor problem. KW has one...

    Great to know! I hadnít contacted Mike about an F block yet. I was doing the leg work to see what my options were. If I manage to get my present engine running satisfactorily then I donít imagine...

    Yeah, anyway, according to the post in the other forum this wasn't that unheard of, to put an F head on an L block. I think it could also be interesting to contact Kaiser Willys about this idea. It...

    Disregard the wonderings about the water jackets. They seem to be a perfect match.

    "Like"

    So according to the post I referenced, which sort of confirmed what I was thinking, the push rod ports line up exactly with the intake valve ports. The reason you can't just put the F head...
  12. Adapting an F134 head to an L134 block

    After finding cracks in my F134 block, the gears in my head started turning to figure out what my options are. I noticed that the L134 and F134 are so similar that they share a huge number of parts....

    Yeah, I thought about that after I posted. If the object is to run hot, I need to restrict water flow.

    Ok,

    So I'm going to try to see if I can use block sealer to keep it going for a while, until I figure out what to do next.

    MB for sale on Craigslist

    This isn't mine, I saw it while scouring Craigslist for parts. Sorry if it's in the wrong place. I'm sure someone out there might be interested. I'd be interested if I had the cash or space.

    I agree with the assessment that this is an F-134 engine. It appears to me from the milled surface that there are no intake valve seats, only the ports for the push rods for the overhead valves. The...

    Thanks for the advice. I think the head might be ok, but there might have been a crack in the block, running from a coolant jacket between the No. 2 & 3 exhaust valves. 40224023.

    WD40, that sounds right.

    Right now I’m weighing my options. This was a pretty big setback and I’m trying not to let it get me down.

    Yes, it’s an F, and it could be warped. Simplest case I was going to hold a straight edge in it and check with a feeler gauge.
