Re: Hi Temp damage

The braze that dropped out was a tunnel fire ignition fix and not a crack. I was in Paradise but now in Chico. I guess the question would be what were the Ford specs for Rockwell hardness ?

Re: Hi Temp damage

Based on the chart supplied by 19forty I would say that the cranks and blocks were exposed to around 12 to 13 hundred degrees. Even if the blocks were blueprint straight what would that do to the...

Re: Hi Temp damage

It got hot enough to put the piston skirts in in the pans and turn a set of edelbrock flats into a puddle. All of it sat under a 3 ft layer of ash for a couple

Re: Ford V8 Rally Cars

During the early 70's there were a couple of guys out of southern California running a 35 Ford sedan in the Baja 1000. I believe Rod and Custom magazine had a feature on that car " Phantom of the...

Re: fire damage

Thanks for the input. I believe the cooling process was probably very slow and the only picture I have seen shows a lot of rubble on top of where my stuff should be. Still no time line on when we can...

Re: C4 trans adapter

You can run a v8 transadaptor with the Flat-o kit and use the flex plate
that Rotofaze makes for this swap. Getting all this this lined up for 006 TIR
