I threatened to replace it with a MEL several years ago but the 352 has been so dependable I promised it an overdrive this year.

I plan to replace my 428 with a stroked 427.  The plan is to run just as fast, but with less rpm, less gear, and less stall.

Which one?  My 427 in my Galaxie , to replace the old one with a new Tunnel Port version. Its currently sorta on track for Beaver Springs.  The 56 f 100, may be change out the BJ/BK twin carbs for a set of BC/BDs that I have setting on the shelf.

One step warmer plug
Better gasket matched intake/heads, found some 1/16" gasket lips in there I did not like
Properly aligned valvetrain, jacked the rocker arms up .25", new pushrods
Valve cover oil leak
Version 2.0 of adaptor spacer for Holley twins on Edelbrock intake, preserving the dual plane all the way up to the carbs, delete the 4 hole and reduce the adaptor angle
Set of Quick Fuel 600's so I can see how another set behaves and swap the BJ/BK's in and out
PCV valve
Air filters to let it breath better
Reduce the stall on converter from 3100 to 2700/2800

The thing winds out really well albeit a bit lean, need more bottom end.

Thanks

To finally install the headers that I bought 2 years ago and had ceramic coated last year.

Due to a broken exhaust valve my 483 was shut down in September.  I repaired the P block the engine was built on but will be going with a NOS 71 427 service block for the next go ‘round
Strongly considering going sold roller for this iteration. Should be able to re-use the Scat forged 4.25 stroke crank and the H beam rods.

An oil change?   That's about it for the wagon.  The clutch is getting a quick service, might split the transmission and recheck things.  Beyond that, Nadda, nuthin.

Got my BT 2x4 intake to put on. And maybe a rotor phase and an oil change and pray it runs good. :) 8)

We'll see what you say after the Beave.  As for me, my FE plate is full. Engines to build, change, and all around mayhem. I can't have just one, nope. Damn bucket list.

What goes fast takes your money with it.
So I'm slow & broke, what went wrong?

Stangman, you got a used MSD cap there for the phase job?
I have some available.
