Selling a FE Girdle I ended up not using. New. It looks very well made. Paid 450$ for it, selling it for 325$ shipped. Take PayPal (friends and family), money order, or personal check if I recognize you and you have enough posts.

Looking to buy or get information on a set of 427 std pistons. Prefer the 65 medium riser.
Thanks, Dan

FE Technical Forum / Cam selection pt2
« on: January 24, 2017, 11:25:04 AM »
Keep looking at different cams and I think I'm going to go with the CompCam 270S. 406, flat top pistons, c2se heads, 3x2s with cast iron headers, toploader & 3:50 gear.

  Adv duration.       Duration @ 50.      Lobe sep.      lift
     270                         224.                   110.         .540

That is until I ran across the cam card on the cam in my yblock.

   Adv.  duration.      Duration @50.          Lobe sep.      lift
      264/268.               234/238.                 110.          .528/.536

How would this run in the FE. Any advantages or drawbacks. Worth the expense.

This car sounds good and runs good with this cam. Car is a 57 Ford 292 domed pistons, ported and shaved heads, 3x2s with header type ex. manifolds 5sp & 3:50 rear end.
Any opinions.  Thanks Dan

FE Technical Forum / Another cam choice
« on: January 16, 2017, 10:19:53 AM »
Another one of those "help me choose a cam" posts. Car is a 61 Starliner 406, 3x2s, toploader 4sp., ps & pb & either a 3.00 or 3.50 gear. Ignition is a stock dual point dist. Probably going with 225/70 14 tires. A little more detail, it has flat top pistons (going for .005 in the hole deck) C2SE heads, shorty cast iron manifolds running thru a mostly stock (probably go bigger on the pipes) exhaust. Everything is at the shop now getting machined and balanced. I was gonna go with the Crane factory type grind until I read the 114 lobe separation put the power at the upper rpm limit. Just using the car for shows and cruises I'll never get there. Here's some cams I've looked at.
                                   Adv. duration.  Duration @ 50.   Lobe sep.      lift

Crane C3AZ-AA.               284.                  244.                114.           .524

CompCam 33-244-4.        270.                  224.                110.           .540

Howard 252342-10.          265.                  230.                110.          .560

Lunati 30330511.            272/282.           236/238.           112.          .569/.580

Lunati 30330508.            290/300.           241/251.           108.          .525

Not a fan of dual pattern cams but I put a couple in anyway. Would any of these cams be a good choice or do you have any suggestions. Just looking for that good FE "thrash" without a radical lope.
Thanks, Dan

FE Technical Forum / 406 build
« on: December 07, 2016, 09:12:40 AM »
A few questions. I'm gathering parts to build my 406 3/2v 4sp 61 Starliner. Not building a monster 1/4 mile engine just something that runs good. Trying to stay mostly with stock parts. Thinking of going with a C3AZ-AA camshaft. Picked up a set of Egge pistons for it and wondered how much I could machine the deck to achieve the best piston deck height. Don't have it apart yet so I can't check what it would be with the new pistons. Currently have C2SZ-C heads. Would it be worth the expense to find a set of the EDC heads with the machined combustion chambers. Finally the web site lists all the block and cylinder head casting numbers, what years they fit and dimensions for all the yblock engines.  Is a site like that out there for FE engines. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
