Re: MSD 6 AL 2 PROGRAMMABLE

I got a 6a, 6al, digital 6al2 and a 6al2 programmable box, not used the last two so no feedback on the newer boxes. I just bought em for future projects because I got a really good deal, paid less for the programmable box because the places messed up n two codes stacked so I got almost $200 off. Any...

I prob should research it out but right now I'm just trying to make ok vids an learn bout all the other related junk. They end up what the...

Re: Opinions Of This Deck Finish???

Failed to mention earlier. The same very smooth surface requirement also applies to the block as well. There should be an Ra value available from the gasket mfg. But then who now owns a surface profilometer? Yah even a block I've cleaned up a few times is much better than this head. Thx couldn't re...

Yeah the surface finish is crap.
I'm assuming the heads are aluminum. Aluminum heads you want very smooth.
I'm also baffled by how he stretched 30 seconds of content into ten minutes.
Oh it almost was longer LOL I had to stop myself from rambling off a few times

Extensive development work by Goetze has indicated the need for a very smooth head surface, not rough.

The reason is due to thermal expansion and contraction which tears up the gasket surface with use.

WOW that is interesting to know, Thx!

Chipped PCD insert on the cutter head?
Prob never know but maybe since it seems a few think it was the machine, my friend using that info could make an argument to get them fixed/redone by that shop. I'd just go someplace else but they are his heads so it's his choice.

Opinions Of This Deck Finish???

Ok so I got this used procomp head from a friend to make a comparison video and the deck looks like the worst I've ever seen. I had a m-shop tell me that a smoother head deck was unacceptable even when I told them that I was using a blue felpro. Still honestly I don't mess with this stuff a lot but ...

I saw the $321 and change total and thought that was per head. :shock:
Plus taxes. The last set I bought for my 2.0 video was $371 but they have more common intake flange ports and should be 64cc chambers

They look like the pro-comp speedmaster casting, I tried to use a pair on a 400 a few years back and there were two rocker studs on each head that were not located correctly-there was no easy way to correct it
They aren't I got a procomp I'm gonna make a video comparing the differences shortly

Re: Cheap SBC aluminum heads..

I looked at the ad and it has the ebay (100% buyer satisfaction) & says (FREE 30 day returns), so basically look them over well and if you find a issue or just don't like them start a return and you'll get a label(pretty sure free) to send them back. Your just out inspection time or cost basically. ...

Re: Politics / Religion / Current Events forum.

The MSM are all millionaires with vested interest in what they push. It's no longer about reporting news but opinion! They've been proven/caught wrong/lying time n time again and just ignore it. They all get the same marching orders and don't care about anyone but themselves!

Re: Politics / Religion / Current Events forum.

I guess some people spent too much time in it, I don't blame em all the BS going on right now!

I've gone over to Yellowbullet political sub forum for my venting, I'd rather bitch online than keep it all bottled up.
