Re: 8CM or EAB cam for 260" Merc?

I've checked a number of EA and 8CM cams. Generally the 8CM has .335 lift and the EA .325. Lobe centers are 110 on the 8CM and 112 on the EA. The EA has 2 deg advance. Keep in mind these measurements...

Re: timing advance how much is to much

Why can't you have full vacuum and full mechanical at the same time? If you have the mechanical all in in at say 2000 rpm, at light load you'll still be pulling 16 - 18 in hg.

Re: Head gasket installation

I use no sealers on my gaskets. Just the studs or bolts.

Re: 39 or 40 truck motor

The Offenhauser heads are good for eye candy. You can achieve the same results with cast heads for a lot less money.

Re: Help with transmission selection

I had a 66 Cyclone GT with a 3.89 rear axle and it was pretty busy on the highway as well as tough on the gas mileage(family car at the time).
