Just got a B Allis and the head is removed rods/pistons and sleeves in a bucket. All the parts are there although I"ll be installing new sleeves/pistons rod bearings and all gaskets. Now to my question::: the pistons are already off of the rods and noone marked front on the rods, but They are numbered. are these rods installed the same as most rods with the bearing locks toward the camshaft? Thanks for your time

Got this ole gal running after getting spark from the magneto, rebuilding the carb and of coarse the engine. Now I need to rebuild the waterpump or buy one. Again thanks for the info on the rods ( and yes they were self explantory once ya started putting them in the engine)

I do not know if the "B" is the same as a WD-45..but, on them, you need to know which wrist-pins need to be off-set and which way to get them to be "Centered" in the pistons, once installed...

no, 2 and 3 are installed backward from 1 and 4. If you install them wrong, they bind on the crank side wall. WHen you try to install, it is obvious if they are backward.

i mean the rod will be too far to the front or rear and it will drag the throw of the crank and not be centered on the journal.

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
