Re: Question on Ford 3.4" '363' Crankshaft

Several years ago, I started piecing together my 363. There were limited internally balanced 'over the counter' cranks available, and I got the 4340 Scat. It is a 28 oz-in crank, but I had lighter weight Oliver rods and light Mahle pistons. I noticed on a lot of cranks, that from the side, you coul...

Re: Cloyes Hex A Just

I've never broken one, using the method previous people mentioned and I've used tham quite a bit.. But I've heard of people breaking them a lot...so Im assuming they probably just tried moving the eccentric vs moving the crankshaft. I can see that breaking really easily that way. We must be discuss...

Re: Cloyes Hex A Just

Anyone using the Hex A Just timing set leave the valves set when moving it? The instructions say to remove the spring load but...... :wink: You don't physically move the cam, you move the crank to where you want the mark to be, after loosening the bolts. Just like you would with using a belt drive.

Here is a picture of that 4218 carb.
Holley also released in the aftermarket, 2 double pumper carbs with that type bore differential, (a 650 list 6708 and a 750 list 6709), but, they had reverse idle systems, also.

Re: Difference between Ford Racing M-9424-D302 & Vic Jr

Sorry about that, I hit the wrong number, it is a 650 cfm carb, not a 660. I also have a odd ball 383 Mopar that has 600 pri & 850 sec, almost like a spread bore. It's not for sale, I want to try it on something. Holley produced a similar carb for the aftermarket, (a List 7010), but, screwed it up ...

Re: Difference between Ford Racing M-9424-D302 & Vic Jr

While I'm still awaiting more info on high rpm manifolds, I'm starting to collect parts for a 331, street build using a set of C5OE heads that I have. I don't know the history of the Ford Racing M-9424-D302 manifold but have read that it's the same as the 2921 VJ. That doesn't seem likely, as the m...

Re: What is cylinder head choke

What is happening when say a sbc cylinder head chokes at the pushrod pinch. I assume by choke it's what it says the head cant flow anymore air regardless how big the cam is. "Air Flow Choke " ... the way I have always understood it, is when the window of lift area above the valve seat is not large ...

Re: Engine Masters gone

Hot Rod Magazine just came out with results of 2019 EMC, and it shows why there is loss of interest with many errors, minimal coverage, and yet several pages of Tucker, C-10, Firebird, Drag Week, etc. Good riddance! Hopefully the JE Pistons version will be less biased and have better coverage. Joe-...

I'm building a high rpm (basic 8000 rpm), 302 with a solid roller cam. I'm a old school Ford guy (75 yrs old) in the 60's and 70's, 289/302 engines, were build with oil restricters, to the cam bearing and the lifter galleys but, I don't hear it mentioned in most of the builds I read about today.

Copper RTV? I've used it on my header flanges in turbo applications and its held up well.
When installing them with that as a sealer, Just be sure you have no intentions of taking them apart, again. :wink:

Anyone run them verses other performance mufflers? Any HP differences?

Re: Engine Masters gone

I think you'd have far, far more interest and coverage if the challenge covered more than just antiquated pushrod engines. Get the Honda guys involved, get Coyote's in there, Nissan VQs, Lexus V8s, etc. The aftermarket is much bigger than just the pushrod engine. They have tried. For two years that...
