FE Technical Forum / Re: 428 oil pressure- calm my nerves
« Last post by cammerfe on January 16, 2019, 11:48:16 PM »
Please note that a bit more idle speed can do wonders for 'idle' pressure. I've never been bothered by an idle speed of about 1000 RPMs.   
 I starts to annoy me at about 1100. (Come to think of it, I've never had an FE with any less of a cam than a 'Double A'.) I believe that idled at about 850. Try bumping yours up a bit and see if you feel a bit of relief.

I wouldn't count on a 'Double A' for power brakes. And I believe the only 427s that came with power brakes were the juice lifter ones  that came in the Mercs. I believe they came with GT or perhaps CJ cams.

I prefer 10 degree retainers on any performance valvetrain - Jay

I have a few sets, including a set on a complete 65 352-4V. Might work OK, as I still have that set of heads that we talked about working on- we can talk

New motor, TP heads with the correct valves and springs for the "D" cam. Which degree keepers would be best for the  .600 lift?

I also install the way the ring manufacture directions say. But being that they move around the piston who’s to say the rings don’t line up eventually even if it’s alittle while. It makes you think as long as you separate them long enough for them to break in shouldn’t matter.

They would have to be the G castings for the combo.  This year's rules mandate using the head that comes on the engine claimed.  These would be on a 352 based combo.

Are the G heads the only ones you want? Might have a pair of H LR heads but they might have exhaust seat inserts.

Yep, it's gotten to the point that it's silly.  I got rid of my 2013 GT because just driving sanely, it was kind of boring.  For it to be fun I had to crank it up, and although I wouldn't say it was fast, it was fast enough that in today's world I'd have gotten a reckless.  The new GT500 will have 300hp more than that car, just no way to utilize that car around town without getting in trouble. 
It's funny you should say that because I feel the same way about my Mach1. Just driving around it's not even real comfortable for me either. I guess that's why after 15 yrs I only have 39,000 miles on it.
