Re: Nurex Timing Gage

Cape Codder, my first question is: Are your absolutely sure that the engine is at TDC when your timing marks are aligned? How did you determine TDC when you set up the NuRex timing gauge?

Re: F 150 OD trans

Royb; That's what I thought about using the Mac's flywheel, no need to shorten the input shaft. That's the extra 5/8" in the overall length. Thanks for the good words. I'm glad I was able to help.

Re: F150 trans or 39 Ford trans for banger?
