    Brakes don't fit on new rotors!!!

    Vincent72Q, Have you assembled just one side or both ? Please keep in mind that wheel bearing cups, cones and seal can have an effect on where that brake rotor sits in relationship to the spindle and the caliper bracket. one bearing cup not being fully seated in the rotor could be causing an...

    Holly Sniper EFI issues or NOT?

    Machattack, MSD 6al ignition, one strike against you (high energy and magnetic pickup) a distributor with an optical sensor would be much better. Specifically what alternator are you running (style and amp rating?. electric cooling fans electrical rating ?. air cleaner size and clearance to...

    GERMYS 72. You did not state if your pedals are OEM or aftermarket, the brake light switch could cause grief, they are different from power to non power brakes, just know what brakes your donor had, weather it be OEM or aftermarket. The difference is in the height. of the attachment rod, which...

    Timing set help

    Mjseakan, Bring the arrow on the camshaft gear to 6 o clock. by doing this, it should put the keyway on the crankshaft gear very near 12 o clock. If you have 4 degree crankshaft gear that should put the crankshaft gear dot just to the left of the keyway (never heard of a blue dot on an OEM Ford...

    Timing set help

    Mjseakan, With the crankshaft gear dot at 12 o clock put a mark on the cam gear at 6 o clock then rotate the engine 360 degrees until your mark is at 12 o clock, now look for a dot at 6 o clock on the cam gear. Boilermaster

    On the ground and running, but.

    Mark Jones, Could be starter heat soak, tight engine tolerances (still in break in mode} or a little too much timing. Since you did not state that there was any detonation ( probably } not too much timing, but the combination of things going on may be too much for the starter you have. If it...

    Valve stem seal tool

    Dirconmach1, I have the OTC 4573, slow and steady and Summit 906784. Please note that the summit 906784 is for 7/16'' studs and it could be used for pedestal mount if you had a 5/16'' to 7/16'' conversion stud such as crane cams sells or have someone with a lathe spin you up a stud. The summit...

    351C 2V Heads Help

    pjs2pc, After watching the video it is a no brainer that you at least need primary accelerator pump tuning, however not knowing where true TDC is (and therefore curb idle speed) will have an effect again on the pump cam timing and clearance. you should be able to make it better without, just not...

    351C 2V Heads Help

    pjs2pc, First the easy part. It looks like your distributor bushing is going to allow 10 degrees distributor and 20 degrees at the crankshaft mechanical advance. Does your distributor have vacuum advance as well?. If so where is it connected. ported or manifold? A look at your spark plugs...

    351C 2V Heads Help

    pjs2pc, you state (cruising @ 2000 rpms} when you mash on the gas, are you in high gear ? and if so does the transmission downshift ? how does the engine perform in 1st and 2nd gears ? Boilermaster

    351C 2V Heads Help

    pjs2pc, Agree 100% with what has been recommended here so far. I would add, don't chase numbers on a timing curve unless you 100% know where TRUE TDC is, Ford balancers can and will slip as well as the pointer can be manipulated keep retarding timing until the detonation is gone (that will save...

    ID an intake manifold

    69 SR, This manifold will bolt up to either 4V or 2V heads. The ports are actually smaller than the 2V intake ports. This will not be a good manifold for a high revving 4V engine and not good for a high revving stroker, it may, however wake up a 2V engine in the lower rpm range, but honestly...

    Fresh off the DYNO!

    Aces, Even though they are two totally different animals $2 says you won't beat the dyno carb. Have you decided on what EFI you intend to run ? if Holley, do yourself a favor and check throttle blades for being uniform before install. Great numbers btw. Boilermaster
