Subject: Re: Oxygen Sensor/Meter

ok.... Quickly.... the sensor operated LEDs are really simple I would
imagine.... an O2 sensor produces a voltage relative to the O2 content in the
exhaust, This production of voltage does not occurr untill the sensor heats
up to above 600 degrees. Don't worry about the Air injection system.... it
only operates for a short time when the engine is first started to introduce
02 in the exhaust stream for the sole purpose of getting the Catalytic
convertor to operating tempature sooner.... This is not exactly text book but
a general idea. I read your listing and just felt like running off at the
fingers for a sec or two.... hope it helps... need more info let me know,
however I know nothing specific about the LED systems you mentioned.... but
as one last note.... having been a engine performance guy from way back... I
really don't see the lights being of much help...... you really want to
tune.... use a chassis dyno and a four gas analyzer.... depending on where
you are located, many tune-up shops have both... trying to find a technician
who really knows how to effectivly use them is something else..... good luck

I'd go for the Hooker supercompetition headers for the fit. It took me
only 1/2 hour to install a set on my 66 Galaxie 428.

You are talking about plastic deformation as opposed to elastic deformation.
The variables depend on the material used. Mike B.

Hmmm, a C4 behind a FE360? Is that for real? On an 8000lb GVW truck?
Somehow it seems unlikely to me...

Happy motoring,

The ID tag on the drivers door has a trans code of G. C4 right? Well you
got me thinking (can you smell it?) so I just went out and crawled under it.
It's dark, it's cold, it's Halloween, it's a C6, OK, so I was wrong. Are you
happy? I am! :) When I first reported FE360 C6 I looked at the engine
sticker and it had an auto trans, so FE360 has to be a C6, I didn't look.
Today going over the ID I seen the G trans code, C4, again I didn't get down
there and look. Now I have looked at it and it's a C6.
I bet the people on the fordnatics list still think it was you! You said
you were leaving! Thanks for pointing this out to everyone buddy, pal,
friend (ever notice (fri)(end) coincidence? I think not!)
Later! :)

Subject: Re: 77 V8-400 Firing order... Again!

Just a thought:

If some one changed the dist at one time they may have gotten it
installed incorrectly ( I.E. 180 deg out or even just one cylinder )
they may have been lazy and not corrected it and gust rotated the firing
order on the dist cap. Everything would work fine but the #1 on the cap
might actually be 4 or 6 or something like that. Do as some one has
suggested and locate TDC on the #1 piston and see where the rotor is
pointing. If you don't want to pull the dist then just start there as if
it was the terminal that said 1 on it.

Good Luck

Yes they are. They are nice looking wheels. I would like a set of
centerlines. If I ever get the money for centerlines their yours. I don't
see money coming in any time soon, unless you've got a set to trade me.:)
The guy I got the truck from bought it for the wheels it had on it. He
pulled these off his truck. Made me wonder what he took off if these are
what he put on. I would bet money all it had on it was cheap chrome spoke
wheels. Some people are easily impressed.
Later!
