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

ok all my freebies have been given away.

Guess the thread served it's purpose in some way.
I have a box of non adjustable rockers with refinished tips. One or all pay shipping.

FE Technical Forum / Re: Electronic Vacuum Advance Module?
« on: November 15, 2019, 07:16:08 PM »
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?

Thanks Chris.
[/quote]Noticable difference in low end torque between the 390 and 410. I ran one for a couple of months in stock form.

Try better dirt cheap electronic ignition or ford tfi electronic ignition.pdf
I never did find anything. I do not recall any vehicles that may have used such a unit. I e-mailed him a week ago but have not heard back. Did you see mention of this?
Thanks

Hey guys, I need your input here. I have a chance to pick up a complete 1995 351w (5.8) roller cam engine from the same place I purchased the T5. When I say complete, I mean the complete engine plus all the front dress--brackets etc.
This would make a V-8 swap/5-speed swap much easier. I could save the 410 for something more appropriate and deserving of it later down the road.
It would be cheaper for me in the long run as there would be no fab work, which I would have to farm out, and would be pretty much a bolt-in swap.

I'm kinda leaning toward this....

What do you think?
Mine stock with 2° advanced timing was typically a 15-16 mpg engine. (November 95)1996 F-250 351 5 speed 3.55:1 gears. It was no power house compared to my 7.3 but it was dead dependable. 116,XXX miles when I bought it in September 2000. 318,XXX in April 2012 when I sold it. Opened the engine once at 186,XXX miles to replace a broken exhaust valve spring. Still had 163 to 175 psi static compression when I sold it. Happened into the old truck at a wrecking yard 5 months after selling it.

Are you using the iron C0AE-D heads? At 52 cc you confirming my thoughts on the small chamber heads on a small cube short stroke spinner. I have wanted to do a 352 for a long time myself. Cheaper to live vicariously through your shop.

FE Technical Forum / Re: Street engine cam timing
« on: November 11, 2019, 07:06:59 PM »
I believe the +4 from cam grinders comes from the fact that most people choose a cam that is bigger than what they actually want. Cam makers realize this, and that'll help gain back some of the torque lost from a cam that is too big. That's just a guess though, so it's worth a solid plug nickle.
Reasonable guess.

Anybody want to talk about "chain stretch" and the possible need to advance a couple of degrees to compensate for that?

:)

Several years ago I asked Barry R if there was a good chain that kept its composure and was adjustable. He sent me a MotorSports double roller with 9 positions. I have beat on it with a couple of FE engines. The chain has 30,000 miles on it. 1500 miles ago it was still tight when I played with the camshaft. Around 9,000 miles with a 282S dual springs
The last 21,000 stock type cam.

Going by what’s in the Ford Parts Book, ‘58-‘59-‘60. It looks like the change may have started with the 1960 352 360hp, then spread to everything else starting with the 1961 model year.
Thanks Kevin.

   Is it still common practice to set cam timing one or two degrees advanced for
a street use engine to allow for a bit of chain stretch or just to pump up low end torque?


Mike.
I like to line up the dots and check. I have gone 6° minus to get 109 ¼° of the advertised 110° with a Comp 282S. 4° forward on my current cam is what the engine likes.

Thanks
