blower motor

By 24tbucket

Filed under: 1924 FORD T-BUCKET (BLOODY BUCKET)

In your travels have you ever seen 1/2 a motor run hot?
I am having problems with my T Bucket motor doing just that. The left side headers are turning see through
red and the right side is as cool as can be. I have talked with all my racing friends and cant seem to figure it out. I have run all test leak down compression
water flow and many more and all seem to be in spec.
Now short of putting a new motor in the thing I still have no clue as to what could be causing it and was
wondering if anyone had any ideas??????

Ok here is a long shot but possible. Could the baffle be turned incorrectly blocking more then it should? Just shooting in the dark.

A vacuum leak on the intake manifold can cause the overheating on one side.

Have you changed or added anything to the engine? Do you have a colapsed tail pipe?

i have never seen it on an engine with a blower. i have seen it on n/a engines. isn't that the side that got hit? and if so did you have this problem before it got hit?
