Subject: speed calculator url

hello all,

i found a good calculator (microsoft excel) for speed that uses the
transmission ratios and tire size and diff. ratio to calculate vehicle
speeds. the effect of the transfer case can be added in by changing the
tire size for example, a 33" tire would be 16.5 if the transfer case is a
2:1 ratio.

it works with manual trans, but can only give an idea of speed with an auto
trans as it doesn't take into account the converter slip.

the url is for anomymous ftp:

ftp://ftp.team.net/autocross/Axlecalc.xls

hope it is useful to someone.

The cork gaskets are okay if you haven't milled your heads, or anything.
See, the cork strips are so tall that unless you have a brand new head and
undecked block and nice thick headgasket, your i.m. upper surface (valve
cover) will stick up much higher than the head valve cover surface and oil
will seep there.

Also, your manifold will sit higher meaning that the #$%* bolt holes won't
line up properly.

Finally, when you tighten the manifold down while it's sitting on a too-high
cork pedestal, the sides tend to bend out and down.

The silicone has much more give to it so as not to cause the manifold
(particularly important with aluminum) to warp.

Also, the RTV is very durable. The reason you let it set up some first (for
an hour or so) then torque it down is to give it the chance to become a
little hard, so when you torque down the 'fold it compresses somewhat. The
fact that the sealant is thus under some pressure and provided you let it
fully cure prior to startup, makes it a very good sealant.

One final thing: you will want to do this right. If you let the manifold
slip too much, or if you don't lay a perfect continuous bead, rip it off and
do it again. If you have a broken/uneven bead, you will have a leak.
Silicone is cheap and you'll have a whole tube of it so try to get it right.
You will probably have to buy two tubes to have one thick nozzle and one
thin one, cause you have to lay the thick bead first.

Subject: Re: CDI Igintion Unit and Converting to Dura Spark

Ignition parts are so cheap for these things and since you never know what
youre getting with used stuff, here's what you do:

1. stop bothering to figure this stuff out about the cdi.

2. go to your parts store and buy a rebuilt duraspark II distributor
for an FE (352/360/390) about 45 bucks.

3. go to wal mart and buy a module box, I think the brand is "west",
for 25 bucks or so. While you're there, buy a cap for a 351, a rotor for a
351, an adaptor for a 351, and wires for a 351 or a 400 or a 460. All the
caps, base adaptors, and rotors are exactly the same for all distributors.
Thank Henry Ford for mass production techniques!! Oh yeah, don't bother
with the cap, rotor, and adaptor if your rebuilt dist already came with one.
You might, just to be 100% sure, want to buy a coil as well. Get one for a
78 mercury cougar/ford ltd with a 302, it fits.

4. go to the wreckers and get a wiring harness in good condition. Take
all the wires from the distributor and coil back to the firewall, and the
wires from the dogleg connector on the firewall to the box. You may have to
do a little soldering, but it's easy. Basically get as many plugs to/from
the ignition box and distributor as you can. Make sure you get the white
plastic connector that goes over the two posts on the coil.

5. Basically it all plugs together on your truck. Do you have a wiring
diagram? Even better is one of those basic wiring schematics that is in the
Haynes book (73-79 ford pickups) in the ignition section. Once you get all
this stuff send me another email and I will compare with my truck and give
you the correct color codes for the wires (don't have them quite memorized).

The correct formula for measuring parallel resistors is R(total)=R1XR2XRn
divided by R1+R2+RN. The number of resistors is not relavent and will give an

I am familiar with the 5 bolt/6 bolt thing on Mustangs. Early 65 models used
a 5 bolt pattern. Late 65 and later used a 6 bolt pattern. I have never seen
a bell housing that would work with both. The late 65 and later 289 engines
share the same bolt pattern with the 302, 351W, and 351C. BTW there is also a
"small block" version of the C6 transmission that will bolt up to these
engines.

I've got to be me! Just got to be me! I'm willing to bet that much

While your theory is absolutely correct, in this case we have spliced wire

I agree with Gary ( bet he never thought I would say that ;)) you should
reduce your idle speed and check the vac on the timed port. If it is

you get o deg advance at idle with the vac canister attached. This won't
change your spark curve gust when it comes in.








This is where Gary and I differ: an engine needs more advance at WOT or
heavy acceleration like 35 degs or so. At low rpm and WOT it needs less
advance, like ( and this is an estimate ) 25 degs. At Idle it needs much
less like 5 after ( yes I said after TDC, some "smog" motors are run
from the factory that way )to 8 before TDC, more is OK but not
necessary. A book I was reading recently indicated that you could
overheat an engine by not having enough advance at cursing speeds.


Another thought is that most carbs have an idle circuit then at a given
rpm/vacuum the normal run circuit takes over. If it won't idle at less
then 800 rpm maybe there is something wrong with the carb? Idle circuit
plugged?













Good luck

Once the silicone sets up, it makes a very solid piece.
It's really only about .200" thick or less once everything is in place.
I used to use the stock corks with form-a-gasket #2 (da brown stuff),
but I had a couple unhappy experiances with this.

One of the problems with the stock corks is that if You ever have
the head gasket surface milled (and hopefully the intake gasket
face to match), then it makes the intake sit lower on the motor.
This doesn't leave enough room for the corks to live, and they want to
slither out when all is torqued down.

When I built my 390, I used the silicone to seal the 2-bbl manifold
down. It didn't leak. The heads had been milled about .015" on the
head gasket surface and the same on the intake surface.
When I swapped the 2-bbl for the D4TE 4-bbl manifold, I had a bunch of
the stock cork seals around, and was nearly out of silicone. So I used
the corks with da brown goo and a little silicone in the corners.
All was well for the first week or so. NO leaks.
Then one day when I got to work, I smelled that nasty burning oil scent
when I parked. When I got home, it STANK and was burning lots of oil off
the exhaust and was dripping oil on the ground. )-:
Yep, the rear cork had slid out of place on the drivers rear corner.
I couldn't see it, but a little probing with some wire verified it.
I cleaned everything up and packed a bunch of silicone into the hole
and managed to make it stop for 20K+ miles.
When I pulled the manifold last week to do the edelbrock swap, I got to
see what was up... About 2" of the end of the cork had squirted out of
the gap. It had been fine for the first week, but eventially it got away.

When I installed the e-brock, I used a 1/4" silicone bead, let it set
until it was quite firm, put a thin layer on top and bolted down the goods.
Let everything sit for 24 hours until it sets up good.

I expect no further leakage.

Also, the edelbrock instructions say NOT to use the stock corks, but
use silicone instead. (like I really trust edelbrock these days...)

I've used the corks with good results, but also had some bummers with
them. I doubt I'll ever use them again. Sillycone be bettah.

A *good* CDI unit should make a nicer spark than the stock duraspark.
If the duraspark distributor will drive it, it might be worthwhile
to use the CDI unit. Definately ditch the points distributor tho...

Yeah, even after I had redone the entire front end on my '71, it still
