Allright, this one may be a little tough, and I'm not sure if it's in the spirit of the trivia, so just let me know...

On a 1949 Ford Flathead V-8, how much should be milled from the STOCK cylinder head to achieve a 10:1 compression ratio?

...it will require some math or a copy of Fix Your Ford copyright 1952 page 185.

Sorry, MARTINSR, but I've got .120. I give you the floor though for trying, and b/c I'm heading out of town early tomorrow and gotta get rest. How is the SF hot rodding scene? I spent lots of time out there when my wife's dad was still alive.

That IS a lot of metal, but recall that a jump to 10:1 from the original +/-7.5:1 is also a lot. These engines could also be bored a lot too, some prime blocks 3/16" (from 3.1875 to 3.375+ more) which also will add to the CR. My favorite size used on several that I built was 3.3425 or ~280cid by using a 4" Merc crank without the .125 offset grind so I could use the late model individual shell bearings instead of the pre '49 full floating versions that captured 2 conn rods.

Ah - those were the days!!!

No kidding! My dad's actually got an old merc crank and a '47 block in the garage...I'd love to do it but I know nothing about flatties. Except that parts are spendy compared to a SBC.

Anyone got a new trivia thread?

I certainly don't deserve it with such a lame answer but I'll toss one out there.

Hey and listen, this is how the trivia thread works.

1. The winner poses a question.

2. People guess, it could be a day or two or more with people guessing, if it's active, let it go, let them sweat.

3. The poster does have the final say in who gets the floor. Let them slide, sure, that's cool. Let them sweat some more with a hint or two, that's cool too.

This thread has been a gas, let's keep it going.

Here is my question.... in 1963 you could get an super high performance brake system on your Corvette, what is this option commonly called? And for a bonus, describe some of the differences.

"The Z06 option included unique dual circuit power brakes which included sintered metallic linings, that were larger than the standard metallic linings, vented backing plates, larger finned brake drums, cooling fans in the drums, self adjusters that work going forward instead of the standard when backing"

You got it. So when you see a ZO6 Vette on the road you know where that name came from!

It's your floor Nightrider!

You are so close that I'll give it to you. This interior actually a '64 Chrysler Newport. Mopar called this the 'Aerowheel'... But I bet you knew that.

It's all you 'bone.
