Re: SBC vortec distributor cap issues

Are the contacts inside the cap brass or aluminium? I used to have a car that used to have the brass contacts but then they stopped making that and the replacement cap had alloy contacts that did exactly as you describe. After replacing the cap several times I got tired of that and started bead blas...

Re: Low speed (1500-1800 RPM) driveability issue

Status update... the combination of the divider filler and the 4 hole space is the hot ticket.The car is running smooth in the range where I was having the problem, and the low speed cruise afr is stable right at 14:1. Also, I am having the reduce the main jet sizes and the PVRC restrictor jets to ...

This sounds like the same Chicago company that bought out part of Edelbrock, but I don't see it in their portfolio.

Re: Low speed (1500-1800 RPM) driveability issue

Does your RPM Airgap manifold have the step in the divider? If it does then this makes it act a little more like a single plane inlet along with the reversion problems at low speed associated with that. Try filling that step and keep your 4 hole spacer. This will make the inlet behave more as a 180 ...

Re: Sbf oil pump for 8000 rpm

Lots of wide clearances everywhere....... I know your involved with Nascar, but I would bet none of your engines have a 3" main journal like his. I agree that the rod clearance is a little loose though. cgarb. The OP has not stated what size or configuration his engine is. If it was based on a fact...

Re: Spark plugs- ground strap”tech”?

I have always wondered why people pay so much attention to the spark plugs to start with - that's at a minimum the second gap that the electrical energy has to jump. The gap between the rotor and cap (conventional ignition) seems to me a place where some minor gains could be made. If you take a spa...

Re: SBC Piston pin - Spirolock or pressed ?

Piston pins for use with locks are usually shorter to allow for the pin to fit between the grooves for the locks. If your Silvolite pins are the same length then you could use them.

Re: Crank failure

I assume that you were NOT running it externally balanced at that power level?? No crank likes that.

You mentioned that it is an offshore crank that you won't say any names.

If it starts with pro then this is normal from what I've seen.

Just wondering what the updated system to use you machine is worth??
From Hines it is around $8000 USD. By the time I get it here in Australia it will be around double that.

The initial post is too abstract for me. In the long run, I think it would be a better use of time to figure out how to get something like this to work well: Pretty hard to argue with the price....... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Performance-Bare-Aluminum-Cylinder-Head-for-Ford-SBF-289-302-351-Angle-/3...
