Re: What 5.0L ord engine do I have

Here's a couple things that may help narrow down your block. The 302's after 1981 have a 50 oz imbalance crank. The harmonic balancer has a much larger counterweight on the inside than the earlier...

Re: 68 Mustang Clutch Release Lever

If the fork is now in deeper or shallower than it was, not centering the T.O. bearing, then is it possible you re-attached the pivot bracket backwards. It's a 90 degree piece, if turned around then...

Re: Can you id this ford.

Sal, take a look at this carb. I think the castings at the rear are what you think are screws Whoops, no picture!

Re: Can you id this ford.

Take another look Sal, I can see the rear of the mounting flange, and I can't see anything that looks like the secondary throttle plate activator rod that would be on a 4100

Re: Can you id this ford.

Sal, I've had a '65, '66, and a '67 F100. All were original 352's with manual choke 2100's, alternators and the squared top valve covers. This photo is definitely a pickup from those 3 years. In...

Re: Can you id this ford.

It's a 352 in a 65-66 F100. The angled oil filter, hand choke and flat top valve covers are the indicators

Re: 1966 289 no start

With the top of the carb off, disable the ignition system so there is no spark. Then have someone crank the engine so you can watch where the gas is going. My guess is it's leaking past the needle...

Re: Need FE rocker shaft bolts for 352

Originally they are not a conventional 3/8" bolt. You need at least one of the originals on each side that is necked down in the middle so the oil coming up thru the head can flow better past the...

Re: 1966 289 no start

I don't think the gas flooding has anything to do with water in the oil. Because it is all over the top end, I'd guess its run like that for a while. Have you pulled the spark plugs to see if they...

Re: 289 K-Code Automatic Transmission

I had a '66 K Mustang with a C4 years ago, at WOT it went to about 4800 rpms. Today you can get a governor kit for a C4 that includes a housing, springs and weights at Dynamic Racing Transmissions

Re: 1955 F-100 5.0L timing

Take a look at factory specs on any Ford, GM or Mopar from the 60's. The mechanical system was good for 12-16 degrees, add that to the base timing from 2-12 degrees and you had from 14 to 28 degrees...

Re: 1955 F-100 5.0L timing

By trying to set the timing by vacuum, at idle, you are not compensating for the mechanical advance. Use a timing light, ideally 36 to 38 degrees total (vac & mech) advance is where you need to be. ...

Re: Sensor cable to brake backplate - 2007 F150?

KULTULZ
No actual policy, just common sense. I never sent any cars out with any warning lights on, but I had many cars come in with a light on. In most cases, it had been on for several days. ...

Re: Sensor cable to brake backplate - 2007 F150?

KULTULZ, I know that I said I was done with this post, but I just can't let this thing go. First, I'd like you to understand that I have been in the auto repair buisness since 1968. I have been...

Re: Sensor cable to brake backplate - 2007 F150?

I don't recommend driving a vehicle with any warning lights on. Please don't indicate that I do. You mentioned "the ABS light gives no indication of what tripped" that's not entirely true. It's...

Re: Sensor cable to brake backplate - 2007 F150?

The hydraulic valving on the ABS system is controlled electronically. If the electronics are damaged or inoperable the valving defaults to a bypass position, just as if it didn't exist, the entire...

Re: Sensor cable to brake backplate - 2007 F150?

The cut abs cable will not affect normal stopping, won't drive any different than it did before. You just won't have the anti lock brakes. Drive like you did up until the late 80's, before ABS,...

Re: Engine horsepower

IMHO, dyno numbers don't mean much, other than bragging rights. For most of us it's trial and error. Build it to the best of your ability and find an honest dyno operator and see what you have. ...

Re: 9 3/8 Inch Ford rear ends

Years ago I had a '69 F100 camper special with a factory 390 & C6. I swapped the original open 3:25, 31 spline, 9 3/8 third member for a 3:50 equalock 9", 31 spline. No issues, it was a direct...

Re: 1957 Ford crankcase filter number

Mac's Auto Parts shows one, P/N: B2TZ-6A631-A, but do yourself a favor and block that thing off and install a pcv system.




Google can be your best friend when trying to find parts.

Re: re build or buy

Unless you can get someone to mag the block, I'd stay away. We all know a flathead is famous for cracks and you won't always see them without magnafluxing them

Re: 1961 Fords - Where have they all gone?

Rochesters were the best choice because the manifold is probably an Offenhauser and they had the small carb bolt pattern
