Lifters on flathead V-8s are solid, not hydraulic, and nonadjustable.
Adjustment on stock lifters is done by grinding the end of the valve
stem. Adjustable lifters are available as a "hot rod" accessory, have a
threaded adjustment screw on the top.

Subject: Re: A/C units


I have an Old Air unit in my '53. It keeps the windows
defoged on these chilly mornings here in Northern Ca.
It won't cook me out of the truck, but if my morning
commute is all the way to work, instead of just to the
train, it will be comfortable in the truck. I just got
my air conditioning working, so I don't know how well
that will work on a hot day.

Subject: engine painting


OK guys and gals, I need some advice.
What are the pros and cons on painting your truck engine while still
in the truck, and pros and cons of lifting the engine out and painting
it.    Mine needs a lot of cleaning of grease, grime, and crud.  Can I
paint with brush or spray can? what parts would have to be removed or
covered.  I want to paint the '54 239 Y-block the original red, with
argent valve covers, and black accessories.
         Suggestions, tips, and experience welcomed.   Thanks,     Abe
