Does crower make a SS shaft mount rocker for AFR220 eliminators?

Their product descriptions are vague and have me confused. Crower website says their rockers fit "Eliminator Street heads with L-98 bolt pattern only." The AFR website lists my cylinder head as "220 race" while the 185, 190 and 195 as "street" . I can't find any actual specs to try to figure out if ...

I eventually did call them. Ended up going 1.5 ratio.

Figuring out which offset shaft mount rockers I need for 220 eliminators.

I'm guessing I need these?: http://tdmach.com/product/small-block-c ... et-intake/


Confused because they don't specifically list the 220 eliminator, but I'm pretty sure the 210 and 220 are the same casting, right?

Guys,

I pleased to hear from all but I had got the race business in mind here.

I had an order mixed up at summit that my wife had to call and get straightened out, while on the phone the customer service rep mentioned that they were busier right now than they had ever been.

Re: 2 vs 3 circuit metering for an auto trans road course car?

Can you provide more details of the engine build? Thx - Brad Ill provide what I know so far: either a Little M or SHP in the 400 to 440ci range, AFR 220 heads with shaft mount rockers, not sure on cam size yet but it will be a solid roller. Still undecided on intake choice too. I would like to see ...

Re: 2 vs 3 circuit metering for an auto trans road course car?

I've built up to a 2.600 blade spread base carb with 2 circuits active, adding any intermediate fuel on the dyno only hurt it. Over 1500 HP... There are a few exceptions where having the third circuit may come into play. Methanol for one, because of the sheer volume of fuel required, even then it d...

I have used the 1094 on aluminum heads, no issues, tons of dyno pulls, no retorque. But as far as long term corrosion I can not say.
Appreciate it, good to know

Re: Can I use felpro 1094 gaskets with afr 220 heads?

If using a steel shim gasket on a aluminum head you may/will get some dis-simular metal corrosion. The speed/time that this occurs is hard to pin point . There are specialized coolant system antifreeze types that will slow down this type of corrosion. Short term ok long term ????? Going to need at ...

Re: 2 vs 3 circuit metering for an auto trans road course car?

Call up BLP. I prefer 4150 metering for street use. I like 2 circuit on manual transmissions because when you are say in and out of the throttle or engine braking you have a cleaner deccel especially with 2 power valves.. I did a few drag week engines that we sent out with 1500-1700 CFM dominators ...

Re: 2 vs 3 circuit metering for an auto trans road course car?

Clean ,crisp part throttle response and drivability are very important for a road race car. Out of the box dominators aren't typically known for this. Is your intake manifold bolt pattern for a 4150 or 4500 series carb? Adapters are usually too tall. My questions for the OP... how good of a carb tu...

Re: Can I use felpro 1094 gaskets with afr 220 heads?

afr recommends the 1003, I would like to use the 1094 to help compression a little. I would go with the MLS gasket with the thickness you really want to get the comp. up. The 1003 will brinel the heads and they will leak down the road a while they are intended for iron heads they do work on aluminu...
