REMANUFACTURED ENGINE BLOCK INSTRUCTIONS
1. Do not attempt to start or run engine without maintaining proper oil
level and flow. We recommend 10 W 30 or W 30 motor oils preferably Diesel grade. The Model A
engine with a steel camshaft and flat tappets performs well with new motor
2. Check oil flow immediately after starting engine. If gauge is not
used loosen lower oil pipe bolt. Oil should start to spurt out in first
minute and half of running. If no oil in two minutes turn engine off.
Determine why no oil flow and repair as necessary.
3. WARRANTY VOID if engine run or operated with out maintaining proper
oil level and flow.
4. Retorque head to 50 lbs after first warm up, at 50 miles, 100 miles
and 500 miles.
5. Maximum timing advance is 28� This is the point of no return and will
promote longer bearing life.
6. Do not attempt to start or run engine at anytime without maintaining
proper coolant level. We recommend the use of antifreeze and 1/2 vial of
7. WARRANTY VOID if engine run or operated excessive temperatures or with
out maintaining proper water level.
8. All parts installed in or on engine are to be clean and in good
working order. The cleaner the engine, the longer the life.
9. Dreamwerks Model A&B Engines is not responsible for damages occurring
to engine or other due to use of worn, dirty, or faulty parts. This
includes but is not limited to water pump, radiator, distributor, oil
pump, oil pump drive gear, carburetor, belts, hoses, manifolds, gaskets,
10. Engine should always be maintained and operated according to
11. Engine speeds should be kept below 45 MPH for the first 500 miles to facilitate engine break-in. Engine should not be lugged in any gear.
12. WARRANTY VOID if any part or parts assembled by remanufacture are
dissembled by other than remanufacture, without notification.
1. Add (3) quarts of oil to crankcase and (1) to valve chamber through
distributor hole four quarts total.
2. 24 hours before starting add one to two squirts of oil to cylinders
through spark plug holes to lubricate cylinder walls, pistons, and rings.
3. Ensure proper spark.
Ensure gas flow
Ensure proper timing.
If all three correct engine will start.
3a. If after seven cranks engine is not running check all items in #3
above. Excessive cranking can gas wash cylinders this can cause damage
before engine is started.
4. After starting check for leaks, do not let engine over heat. Ensure
proper water and oil levels and flows.
THINGS TO WATCH OUT FOR
1. Weak, broken or faulty spring and plunger
2. Proper length flywheel bolts.
3. Remove dipper shelf from oil pan and clean bottom of oil pan underside
of dipper shelf. Rinsing or soaking will not sufficiently clean parts.
4. Do not idle engine to break in. This can cause loss of lubrication to
cylinder walls and damage to engine. Engine break-in speeds should be between 35 and 45 MPH for the first 500 miles.
5. Avoid long cranking times. This can gas wash cylinder walls, which is
loss of lubrication and can cause damage to engine.
6. If using larger intake valves ensure clearance between head and valve.
The high compression Snyders head we sell does have ample clearance.
1. Head gaskets are not warranted.
2. Repairs made to engine and or car that are not due to our fault are
chargeable, this can include diagnostic time.
