Non-FE Discussion Forum / One Barrel To One Barrel Adapters
« on: November 16, 2019, 09:50:12 PM »
I am experimenting with hours per gallon on my tractor. The intake is a 2 5/8" bolt spacing. I want to also use a 2 3/8" bolt spacing and 2 15/16" bolt spacing carbs. Anyone have one made up or store bought you would part with?
Thanks, Chris

FE Technical Forum / Electronic Vacuum Advance Module?
« on: November 07, 2019, 07:52:23 AM »
I called MSD about options for an electronic vacuum advance for a dual point that didn't offer a mechanical vacuum advance. I figured there would be a small discrete module that plugged into vacuum and worked with the newer 6&7 boxes. Seems like a simple concept. Has anyone figured out a way around running a vacuumless dual point distributor with an electronic advance?

Non-FE Discussion Forum / Taboo 226 Flathead Six
« on: October 27, 2019, 01:34:29 PM »
I have a former propane 226 going to gas. Once I get a fuel pump and pushrod is there anything else missing to complete it? Looks like the rod rides directly on a cam lobe. Is that right?

FE Technical Forum / C0AE-D Heads And Remflex Gaskets?
« on: October 23, 2019, 09:54:22 PM »
Which Remflex gasket works with the D head port? There web site does not give port to bolt hole reference. It is not the same as my C4. Lots of ways to seal headers to heads but I am only interested in Remflex.

FE Technical Forum / OEM Steel Shim CC?
« on: October 15, 2019, 04:01:35 PM »
I have a couple of sets of steel head shims. They are several hours away, no other numbers or measurements available right now. One set is shaped like the Felpro 8554 at .021" thick. The other is shaped like the Felpro 1020 at .027" thick. Anyone have cc's figured up?

Non-FE Discussion Forum / Anyone Heavy Used An 8N 6 Cylinder Tractor.
« on: September 10, 2019, 11:20:51 AM »
Anyone used the I6 or V8 conversion and had problems with over loading the PTO/transmission? Specificly running an 8' shredder?  No need to turn it over 2600 rpms. I know these are solid tractors with the 23hp Flat 4.

EDIT: The specs for the 8N claim 30hp

If someone has some parts laying around so do I. Can drive within a couple hundred miles of Roswell, New Mexico, Waco, Texas or in between. Let's trade. Two54-six40-eight073

Parts needed:
Exhaust manifold
Correct carburetor
Air cleaner

Wish list:
Hydraulic front end loader (I have the cast iron oil pan version)


I am sliding a 76 Dana 70 F-350 axle in my 65 F-250 while I rebuild the original Dana 60. The 76 wheel spacing and perches are good to go to the 65. If the 65 backing plates and brakes won't bolt up to the 76 axle I will use the 76 rear brakes. I have not looked up the specs yet but the rear brakes are wider and the cylinder is likely 1/16" to 1/4" larger in diameter.

QUESTION: If I use the larger brakes on the existing 65 system will there be a big enough difference to lock the rears under semi aggressive stops?

What is the load sensing rear brake valve called that came on some cargo vehicles? I could take advantage of the oversized rear brakes and give them more juice when loaded heavy.

Working in the 430 to the bare chassis before I pull the FE out of my daily driver. I will post pictures on this site after I have gotten a little further.

My time is coming soon enough when I will get these "helpful" reminders.

Never seen a sign like this. He must be something.
