Non-FE Discussion Forum / 1969 Mustang disc brakes
« on: March 13, 2021, 06:01:40 PM »
Hi Guys about 10 years ago I installed hydro boost on my Mustang because there wasn't enough vacuum to run the brake booster. Fast forward 12 years I am putting in electric power steering because I'm tired of the sloppy steering and the clutter, I want to get rid of the power steering pump and hoses. What are you guys using for braking these days. I am considering putting in a vacuum booster and a electric vacuum pump.  What are the choices for manual disc brakes ? Opinions please of course I have a roller cam with a ton of overlap so the vacuum is no better now.

FE Technical Forum / cooling question
« on: June 28, 2020, 02:00:49 PM »
Hi guys I have a 69 Mustang FB with a 630 flywheel HP 428 .040 over, Edelbrock heads, .700 solid, roller, Scat forged crank, aluminum flywheel, Hooker 1 3/4 coated headers, 3" Magnaflow exhaust, Edelbrock aluminum water pump, Edwlbrock Victor, Champion 4 row radiator, Focus electric fans. I have a 160 stat, The car stays at 180 idleing all day if the temp is above 80 degrees outside. As soon as the motor goes above 2000 rpm the temp rises as high as 210 going 70 mph in overdrive. Let it idle and it eventually cools off. I realize Champion is not the best radiator but it gets rid of the heat when the engine is turning slow. The Focus fans aren't the the best either but at 70 mph in overdrive turning 2200 should be enough air without fans. I put in an 180 stat figuring the water doesn't have enough time to cool off but didn't help. No thermostat the same thing. The only thing I can figure is with the big cam and lots of overlap doesn't make horsepower till 2000 rpm. I even bought one of those aluminum pieces that covers the top of the grill to force air thru the radiator. I would buy a 1100 dollar Griffen if I knew it would solve the problem. Suggestions please.

FE Technical Forum / Carb tuning

I want to learn more about carburetors. Where can I find some info on fuel mixture besides jetting. My car runs good but the air fuel guage is all over the place. I have 13.5 idling, 11.0 between 2000 and 3000 and 13-14 all the way up to 6500. I was thinking of going fuel injection but reading the Holley and Fitech forum it seems to be ht or miss.

Has anyone heard from Doug Smith- CJ shaker? He was going to buy some valve covers and haven't heard from him. Hopefully he is just busy with life.

I have a 428 stroked to 464 solid roller, duration at .050  266.00 intake, 272.00 ex. .690, .700 110.0 center line 110 lobe separation. 850 Holly hp 80 jets pri 88 sec, 10.5:1 compression, Hooker 1 3/4, 3" exhaust. Timing 35 locked. Victor intake ported to Barrys cnc ported heads. Idles about 1200 at 13.5afr cruises between 2000 and 3000 at 11:1 afr.  in fourth gear from 3000 to 6500 foot to the floor it ranges 13.5:1 to 14.2 at 6500. Seems pretty good except 2-3000 is very fat. Should I just go down on the primary 2 sizes or am I over looking something?

FE Technical Forum / Stainless Steel Headers
« on: August 22, 2018, 06:47:39 AM »
Does anyone make custom headers for a 69 mustang out of stainless? I would like at least a 2" header. Right now I have Hooker 6114 that are Swain Tech coated. I think I am leaving power on the table with 1 3/4 headers. Ground clearance is a consideration. My 464 is making about 625 flywheel hp.

Hi guys looking for recommendations for a solid roller camshaft for my 464. Engine builder recommends Lunati solid bushed roller lifters he says they seem to survive well on the street. Engine specs are 10.5 compression CP pistons,4.25 forged scat crank, scat rods, Erson rockers, Barry R stage X heads flows 330 intake, MSD dist fixed advance, Edel Victor port matched, Hooker 1 3/4 , 3" exhaust. Holly 850, TKO-600, aluminum flywheel, 411 gears car weighs 3500 without my fat butt.

FE Technical Forum / Fe oil pans
« on: June 12, 2017, 10:48:31 AM »
While my engine is at the machine shop I decided to look at new oil pans. I want a T pan for road clearance, I looked at Moroso and Canton T pans. I notice they have a stroke limit. Moroso has 3.98 and canton is 4.125. I don't understand how they are different when you use the same windage try. I was using a Cobra T pan and never even considered the stroke would effect the pan.  By the way I have a 4.25 eagle crank and the stock windage tray in a 69 mach 1.

FE Technical Forum / Rebuilding my 464
« on: May 01, 2017, 12:48:45 PM »
I posted this in the dyno section by mistake.


Hi guys something let go in my current 464. The motor is 8 yrs old many street miles lets say 10k, has 50 track passes plus the usual flogging it on the street. It has Eagle crank, Scat rods, CP pistons 10.5:1 .040 over, Erson rockers, Hooker 1 3/4 headers, 3 inch exhaust, Fidenza 13lb aluminum flywheel. Cam is similar to a comp 294 (custom grind by builder), street master port matched, Holly 850, Msd dist locked timing. Barrys Edelbrock heads pro ported  flows 330 @.600. This combo made 415 rwhp at 5800.
                            What would I need to do to get to 550-600 hp on pump gas? I am assuming it spun a bearing at this point crank is probably toast. Block is good so are the heads. Lets hear opinions.

Drag Strip Results for FE Powered Vehicles / 1969 Mach 1 Driver
« on: February 29, 2016, 11:18:04 PM »
This is my street cruser I had for 42 yrs. Its no race car, but is respectable. Full Interior stereo 100 watt amp and all. Car will go faster if I leave harder. I have been leaving at 3500 this year I will step it up a bit. I might even try powershifting lol. I am out to have some fun and not make any more carnage. Two years ago I spun the rear housing ,tore the pearches broke the driveshaft and twisted the tailshaft. I am glad it was on the starting line and not the finish line and no body damage.

FE Technical Forum / Ignition Problem?
« on: July 10, 2014, 09:06:14 PM »
Tonight I decided to sit in the car instead of laying under it. I haven't driven it much since the Beaver Springs carnage. I got new perches put on the rear, reinstalled the pumpkin, axles etc. Got a new driveshaft and ujoints, Mark WIlliams yoke. New clutch, pressure plate, pilot bearing, throwout bearing reinstalled my rebuilt Robbmc starter etc. Rollerized the Z bar and clutch pivot. I also put telflon bushed rod ends on the rest of the clutch rods. While I was at it I put new lenses on the dash and led bulbs to match my cobalt gauges.

 So I had a tough day so I wanted to go to the local car thing a few towns away. I got in the car started it pulled out of the driveway it ran fine. By the time I got to the main road it was hesitating every time I shifted, By the time I got it in fourth gear it back fired a few times. I put it in 5th and it felt like it was only running on 4 cylinders. I stopped at the next light to make a u turn and it idled fine but misses and sputters all the time while under light load. I got home and looked at the dist cap and it was a little dirty but the center carbon thingy was missing. So I put an old cap and rotor on and it had no effect what so ever. Im going let it cool off and try it later. I think the coil might be going south. Of course I don't have one to swap out. ANY SUGGESTIONS would be a great help. I goes right to 6500 and burns the tires but sounds like its still sputtering. Update I let it cool off for 3 hrs runs exactly the same.
