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 have a large collection of 1, 2 & 4 bbl carbs (about 100, or more). Smallest Holley 4v is a 450 off a 327 Rambler and largest is a 850 dp. I have matching pares of 550 & 600's but, no 660. Another carb that I have and will ...

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

Big Block, this isn't about the heads, it's about the M-9424-D302 manifold. This isn't a race engine, it's going in a '48 Ford PU, with a AOD trans. With a relative, small amount of work, the heads flow 200 cfm and all I need for this. I'm hoping that the M-9424-D302 will have a little smaller runne...

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

The engine will be cammed to operate at a max of 6200 rpm. At 6000 rpm, it will pull 575 cfm of air for 331 CI, if it reaches 100% efficiency and I plan to use a 600 or 660 cfm carb.

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 ma...

Re: 4150 4778 Holley carb questions

Bill, your description sounds like it could be a C4 Corvette?

I want to eliminate my Crossfire and go with a 4v. I have both a Torquer and Performer manifolds but, if I install the 4v, I don't want to cut the hood.

Do you or anyone else have info on getting 4v on a C4 w/o cutting the hood?

Re: 302 Ford manifold selection

Yes, that was the one that I quoted from, above.

As I alluded to above, many have AFR heads, did they all choose a NON AFR manifold to go with the AFR heads?

302 Block oiling

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. Unl...

Re: 302 Ford manifold selection

The application for mine is a 306 CI, peak HP of 78-8000 rpm. This has been all I could find on the TF-R manifold: "slightly better than the super victor! On the 351W we built here it was worth 4HP and 5TQ and 1.8 avg. HP and 1.9 avg. TQ through the pull from 4500 rpm to 7200rpm. All we did to it wa...

Re: 302 Ford manifold selection

Bill, thank you for that info.

I had heard that the earlier (8-10 yrs ago) chi copy's were very close to the original FW's but, these later ones are basically, very inferior.

Have you ever talked to anyone that has used the TF, R manifold?

Valve spring program

Is there a program, that will output the open valve spring pressure needed with the valve assembly weight and rpm inputs?

Re: 302 Ford manifold selection

I've been schooled on Funnel Webs by, JDC so, I know what to look for. They have to have a Aussie emblem on the bottom.

If you look at the Ebay one, you'll see how rough and uneven the plenum is. The runners are said to be the same and some have spots that leak fuel.
