      Lawyer up?

      Steamer replied to the thread Crankshaft hand crank tool.
      1/2" pipe and 3/8 all-thread rod. I drilled the hole a might small and pounded it in. Smooth rod or a long shank bolt would make a nicer job. I pounded it in long and then trimmed to length.

      I have the pump off and never noticed this before. On this GMB pump or other pumps in the past. The gasket matches the plate so it’s the casting that doesn’t align exactly. Don’t know if it impedes the flow any. Has anyone else noticed this or do...

      If you're not starting the engine but just rotating for service, I put this together with material I had on hand. Not something to stow onboard, but good enough to hang in the shop.

      Valves all looked good. I'm impressed with how clean it looks under the valve cover also.

      Steamer replied to the thread 1972 F Engine runs too well.
      How well does it keep running? Smooth enough to drive or is it shaking, pinging, and making other strange noises? If it has the stock carburetor, make sure the idle cut off solenoid is functioning and that someone did not raise the idle speed...

      @Grayscale I was just talking to a friend after church about this and he says the same thing you said wrt pressure drop as the oil warms up because it can flow into more places more readily, so effectively the volume has increased. He’s been...

      Actually, in that drawing I didn’t depict the third port as I wasn’t aware of it. I now realize that schematically the Redline diagram is correct but it’s confusing because it shows the “T” intersection outside of the regulator when in fact it...

      Ah! Thank you for that. I missed that image and I never saw an F in person. Most of all I didn’t realize that the regulator has three ports. That’s where my confusion was. Did I label the regulator diagram correctly?

      The F manual offers no diagram of how the regulator is plumbed. It only offers a description of it. I believe I correctly hand drew how it is plumbed going from the manual’s description paying attention to the one sentence I boxed in red above...

      Or, the higher pressure from higher rpm.

      Ok, so which do you believe to be correct?
    • Steamer
      Steamer replied to the thread F Motor is a Better Oiler.
      Ok. Your understanding is as stated in the manual. My point is the manual’s description and Redline's description are totally different. Here’s the confliction as I see it. This is Redline's Description This is how the F manual describes it

      Steamer replied to the thread F Motor is a Better Oiler.
      My take on Redline’s diagram & description is, that the ratio of oil to the filter vs oil direct to the engine is not adjustable. It may alter a bit only by engine clearances vs filter efficiency. And the regulator is more like a relief valve...

      Steamer replied to the thread F Motor is a Better Oiler.
      I’ve always been confused about how the F’s oil regulator is plumbed. I thought I was getting clear here on this thread, but then I just now I came across this conflicting description and diagram, on RedLine’s webpage “HERE” . So, which is...

      Thanks for uploading the FSM. I see two branches, one for lubrication, one for filter element (F engine)

      Where did you get that top picture? Do you have a copy of the Toyota F-Engine Repair Manual? If not here’s two pics of the applicable section on F-engine lubrication. There’s three bifurcations, and oil pressure above 42 psi sends oil back to...

      If you’re trying to increase oil pressure then run 20-50 , if you’re trying to improve lubrication for a flat tappet engine then use a zinc additive. Zinc is natures way to smooth operation

      Here is the diagram, and a realistic scaled-drawing of the head and block, of the early F filtering in action. It pumps oil directly to the engine parts, after it controls the pressure at the location where it bifurcates: And, specs if you...

      I thought I would given an update on my Holley sniper 2300 2BBL. My project 1976 FJ45 was running like a bag of spanners. After sorting the Ignition, timing, valve stem seals, and tidying the wiring, she ran better, but it was far from...

      I should leave well enough alone….. Where in that original, super long, rambling, darting post did you ask how to optimize oil pressure? Side note, I get less oil pressure in summer in most of my vehicles because the oil is hotter and...

      Even though the cover has tabs to hold the gasket outwards to the edge lip, I've found the cork gasket still likes to creep inwards. That's another reason I like sticking the gasket on before installing the cover. I came up with this setup. Stick...
