Re: 406 sbc rotating assy

I haven't had it done in a long time, but I would think with $100 plus an hour shop rate that a good balancing job would be closer to $500. Don't shops factor in the cost of the machine or just machine time? I guess you get what you pay for.

Re: Here is how to do it

You can call it an "electromagnetic motor" if you prefer but there is no such thing as a magnet motor without electricity. Okay but you can still make the magnet field with very little current and voltage, that is what some folks have done. Gosh they used to make heavy steel plate lifting magnets p...

Re: This can be dangerous

The thing to worry about is mounting and demounting a tire and having this happen, as your face is right there.
I'm with jcc about not driving next to trucks, I avoid them.

Re: Here is how to do it

Yes - there is a reason they are called ELECTRIC MOTORS . There is no such thing as a "magnet motor". Its magnetic s that make them work. Haven't you heard of an electromagnet? Its the electric current that creates the magnetic field with in the motors. So all motors are magnetic ! Just look it up.

Re: Here is how to do it

Magnets are just like springs. How do you make a generator with JUST springs? FREE energy IS real! You take a dead battery to the auto-parts store, they will charge it for free. It's free energy. REALLY! Magnets are not like springs, as springs have no attractive force or repulsive force, and some ...

Just one last thing to say with this argument - YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID!🙄
That is true, and that is what in the box thinking is. I've posted many videos and articles of people that have accomplished what this topic is about.

Re: Low speed (1500-1800 RPM) driveability issue

A question comes to mind : how much does overlap on a cam determine the potential of an engine to reach high rpm and power ? NONE . Hmm then run out and get a 0 degree overlap cam ground NOW, and then report back here and let us know how well it works. This is Cam Kings area of expertise maybe he c...

Re: Ls 3 cylinder walls cracked

Just curious was this ever a problem with the old factory stock bore SBC I can't ever remember seeing that on one from detonation? So how thick are the cylinder walls? Where all the cracks oriented the same? And how? For and aft? Side to side?

Re: RIP Jessi Combs

Its just like any other engineering interest, and has nothing to do with her death, I would like to see what happened. I saw some photos of the partial vehicle on a truck trailer, mostly the engine and real wheels.
