I just went there and found two hits, both in Michigan so maybe it's
a small company? Don't know but I believe any shop which can make
them from scratch should have the bushings as well?

Can you tell a little more about the Offy dual plane for spreadbores?
I was just wondering how they could use a separate plane just for the
secondaries, since one plane of a dual plane feeds 4 cylinders and the
other feeds the other 4 cylinders, whether it's fed from just the primary
bore or from both primary and secondary on that side. By the way, I
definitely agree on the spreadbore concept. It seems it would be ideal
for a heavyweight small (302) engine full size Bronco like mine. I just
trashed my new Holley 600 cfm squarebore in favor of a Holley 2 barrel with
a centerhung float that I picked up at a flea market! It's looking like
my mileage has gone from around 8 to 17 mpg! With not a lot of power
sacrificed. It's running with an adaptor on the Weiand intake.

Gary (gpeters3 ford.com) states:

The advantage is high CFM at WOT but small primaries at cruise and
around town giving much better metering and better economy but with a
hidden punch in the secondaries. The Rochester has the largest
difference between primary and secondary I've seen so it's my first
choice. The Offy dual/dual plane manifold uses a separate plane for
the secondaries which is "made" for the spread bore design IMHO so
I'm keenly interested in it. The spread bore design allows for a
rediculous size carb with small carb metering.

I heard that the quadra-jet is probably the most sloshproof carb for
wheelin. If I don't end up using my pro-jection, I will probably go this
route. Is there an adapter to convert square bore to spread.

The picture only shows a cross section and I'm assuming it's a dual
plane since it's made for low end torque. I have the same questions
in my mind as to how they managed to do it and plan to give them a
call one day when I'm ready to play.

My big deal with the Rochester is it's well known for it's fine
metering and high degree of configurability but it's drawback is some
fragility in the metering rods If I recall correctly which I'm happy
to put up with for the better economy without losing any performance
and perhaps even gaining since I can then use a larger "total" CFM
rating carb. I haven't messed with the carters so don't know but am
fairly certain they have less difference between the two bore sizes
than the Rochester. I want the biggest secondaries and smallest
primaries I can get :-) Holley has the least difference so is on the
bottom of my list. I rate them maybe in this order:

Rochester,....Edlebrock, Carter,...............................Holley

If all I wanted was performance I'd go with the Holley Dominator by
Barry Grant. NASCAR likes them so that's good enough for me :-)

You will need to reset the back lash when you get done since the
threaded adjusters won't stay put and the location may be lost when
you take them apart. The new bearings may have a different "fit"
anyway so you'll need dial inidcator to check the lash :-) I've got
a Dana sitting on my bench, I keep saying this but I'm going to take
a quick look tonight and refresh my memory on the bearing adjusters.

I almost could of used one of these this past weekend. A few weeks
ago, I had installed my transfer case. Well, the last week or so,
the driveline vibrations were getting worse by the day. I finally
decided to take a look, and 3 of the 4 bolts that attach the
driveshaft to the t/c had fallen out, and the 4th only had a couple
turns left. I must of forgotten to tighten them down when I worked
on the t/c. Oh well, luckily I had spares of those 12 pt bolts and
it works great with all of the bolts attached 'tightly' now..

All this seems like a little too much work for a center support bearing
on the drive shaft. ;)

Just make sure you keep drive shaft in alignment and don't miss match
the splines. You might need to have the old one pressed off and the new
one pressed on. Some can be really stubborn.

Don't worry about the backlash, that's what the slip yolk is for :)

My 63 uses cast iron shackles and mounts. The truck was a (well still
is really) an F-100 4x4. I have replaced so much of the running gear
with 3/4 ton stuff I just call it an F-250. Anyway the shackles and
mounts are cast iron. A good spring shop should be able to set you up
with the correct bushing or if not could make you up a set with rubber
or poly bushings for ease of future replacement. The big problem I see
with the bronze bushings is the wear. If you don't keep them well
greased they will go south really fast. The ones on the rear of my
truck have enough play in them to cause a rear steer situation.

Speaking of wheels, there is a 61-64 ( I haven't looked that close at it
since not much is left) 1 ton just down the street. It still has the
six lug wheels and tires on it. Only things left are the cab, frame,
rear end and front end. Doors, fenders, interior, bed are all gone. I
might go over and check it out if you are really in need for a set of
wheels.

Pat: From the PAW catalog here is a brief description: "the Dual Port
manifold is actually two separate manifolds in one. The entire manifold is
divided from the base of the carburetor to the head flange. In operation , the
primary mixture is fed into the bottom runners and engine operates on this
smaller port until the driver or engine demand cuts in the secondaries--the top
port. The primary system further restricts the air and increases it to the
'speed of sound.' This adds additional horsepower at low rpm. Since the
secondary is isolated from the heat of the engine the secondary mixture is
cooler adding an additional boost in power.

A lot of sage advice has been already written but I would just
add one more tid bit. When converting to DuraSpark, connect the
red and white wires up to the solenoid *and* the coil '+' to the
existing ignition wire. When you read "only one new connection

Did you use the dura spark harness from a junk car? That saves a lot
of trouble since the only hookups to the original power system will
be the balast resistor or low voltage ignition wire and start relay
pin on the ignition switch or tap off the start relay itself. I
don't see how going directly to the coil will work well since it
bypasses the module? The module green wire goes to the hot side of
the coil.

Does anyone know of a place where I could replace Vol 2 of the Ford Shop
Manuals for my 74? The previous owner lost Vol 2, the volume that covers
the engine, but he had all of the other manuals.

Dustin: I have the factory manuals for a 78. I'll look up the f150 and
scan it and send it if it helps.

In a message dated 97-10-17 18:18:11 EDT, you write:


out one notch, but when you pull it out two notches the headlights come on
and the front parking lights go out. >>

Thats the way it was back then, before side marker lights, etc

List,

Jon thanks for the reference to Pony Carburetors. I hadn't been to their
site before.

I found the following at the Pony Carburetors site, look there if you need
more detail. I thought that their comments were interesting, especially in
light of Steve's recent experience.

carburetor. A 289 2V will turn the >quarter mile in about 17.8 >seconds
