Well Dave, FIRST and foremost I would find out the brand of the cam that JC is
offering. I personally have the E303 motorsports cam and I am rather happy
with it. Ford MOTORSPORT has a selection of 5 or 6 cams now that offer from
MILD to WILD. One of the cams is almost the same as the stock profile except
is has a better lobe thickness and has a bit more lift to get the fuel flowing
better. I'd try getting a new SVO/MOTORSPORT catalog or logging on to Summit's
website. I believe they have a link to SVO on there. And as far as a cam
having a power band from 1k to 3k....I have done some work to my truck (heads,
cam, exhaust, etc., etc.) and I make power from 2k all the way up to 4500.
That is a very low rpm number and I would be a little wary of the brand.

has about 3 or 4 different test modes and a way to clear he continuous codes,
without touching the 2 cables together and pushing on the brake petal (I don't

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Computer codes

I just wanted to let everyone know that I figured out the problem. I guess in
my process of checking the voltage on my non-adjustable TPS, I think one of
the stick pins I was using must have grounded and caused the code. I cleared
all the codes, disconnected the battery, pulled the computer and my
aftermarket chip. I then ran 2 batches of tests, one without the Superchip and
one with. I am guessing that my unplugging the computer and chip then
reconnecting the com must have done it. During both batches of codes I got the
111 on the initial codes list and then under the continuous all I had was the
411 codes which is rough or low idle (CAM). Just thought I'd give everyone the
heads up and let you know I solved the problem.

While your this far along I'd spend the additional $100 or less and take the
head to a machine shop for cleanup, valve grinding and new seals and let
them check it for flatness and shave as necessary. The valve seals will be
part of the "upper end gasket set" that you could buy to get the head
gasket.

This is strictly MYHO.

Leave it where it is. The 430 was never a very potent engine - was too
heavy to be anything but a boat anchor - was also offered in 383Cuin Size
in the Mercury. No FOMOCO support anymore and was never any aftermarket
support.

The C6 was not yet introduced when the 430 was offered. It must be a
Cruise-o-matic, which was a reliable automatic and the forerunner to the
C6.

Tim,

I don't know about CA, but I built a similar toy here in SC. Mine was an
84, and I put in an 88 model 5.0 from a Mustang. I changed the FI to an
aluminum intake, and Holley 600. I used a C4, and bought the complete kit
from Total Perfomance. It was a simple swap, I only had to drill one 3/8"
hole to bolt the engine into the chassis. I built it with all the
accessories, AC, PS, PB using the original brackets from the Mustang. The
headers were Tri-Y's from TP. I kept it totally stock looking, except for
the 2" exhaust pipes I ran out the RH side of the bumper. It was a
fantastic setup, it drove and rode like a stocker, and could smoke most of
the late model pony cars. It unfortunately met with an untimely death,
otherwise, I would still be driving it!

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Re: Changing trans fluid

The filter and gasket should come in the same box for a C-6 fluid change.
However, I do recommend draining the torque converter, it contains half of
the fluid and is easier to do than the pan. This is one thing GM owners wish
they had "A way to drain converter"!!!
The rock guard on lower front of bell housing has two screws that hold it
in.
A guy can use a big screwdriver to turn the engine with the ring gear, once
plate is removed.
A 9/16 wrench (to hold converter in place) and a 7/16 socket to remove drain
plug, that's it !!

I drilled a hole in the pan of my C-6 and welded a 5/16 nut to it for a
drain hole, cut out a piece of gasket material and stuffed it on a capscrew
(shortest I could find) and... wala, It is simple to change fluid, all of
the fluid.
"What about the filter?" you ask.
Filter, I don't even call it a filter. I call it a chunk of screen door.
I have never found anything in those screens in nine years of maintaining
twenty-six C-6's in our fleet.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Gearing on '85 Bronco

I am looking for input from list subscribers regarding the potential need to
change the gearing on my '85 Bronco (EB, 351, 3spd AT). I bought the truck
about 2 months ago. It had a new 351 installed about a year ago (9000 miles
on it) by the prior owner. It has 33" tires also installed by the prior
owner. At times (particularly from a stop) it feels like it has less power
than it should, and I wonder if the tall tires effectively changed the gear
ratio and reducing the amount of useable power at the rear tires. The
transmission shifts a lot at highway speeds (50-60 mph) when I push on the
gas pedal to accelerate or maintain speed up a slope. Compounding the
problem (and a separate problem by itself) is the fact that the transmission
seems to fail to shift down to 1st gear when I stop at a light. I am
wondering if there is an easy fix for this, or if it may be a sign of real
transmission problems. Any thoughts?

It's an oddball Ford engine, last offered in 1965. Parts
are really scarce (aside from wrecking yards) and the only
thing that I know for sure it will bolt into is Lincolns 1968
and prior, late-fifties and early-sixties T-birds, and Edsels.
If you want to put it into something else you'll probably
have to make special motor brackets and stuff, although
Edsels were basically full-size Ford/Mercury chassis, so
by extension they might fit late-fifties/early-sixties
Galaxies and Montereys and such. As far as I know, the
"MEL" V8s weren't used in trucks.

It's a really bizarre engine design that has nothing in common
with any of Ford's other V8s. The heads have no combustion
chambers, and the cylinder block deck face is angled to create
a combustion chamber inside the cylinder. Other engines in
the "MEL" family include the 383 (yes, FoMoCo made a 383!),
the 410 (Edsel only, I think), and the Lincoln-only 462.

If it's in good running condition and you have something to
bolt it into, take it. If it needs a lot of work, I'd
check around and see what parts I can find before making a
decision.

The C6 should be standard-issue sixties-vintage Ford, with
the "FE" (352/390/428) bellhousing bolt pattern. Lincoln
automatics were typically heavy-duty units, in fact, Fords
fitted with Police packages were equipped with the Lincoln
automatics. Some Lincolns used oddball tailshaft housings,
but usually the housings can be removed and replaced with
the regular parts. So even if you can't use the engine,
you might be able to do something with the trans if you
have a 390 or 428 laying around.

and Montereys and such. As far as I know, the "MEL" V8s
weren't used in trucks. There is zero available for it in
terms of speed parts, though Ford DID make a halfhearted
effort in the late fifties and early sixties with 430s in
T-birds. It didn't do too well.

It's a really bizarre engine design that has nothing in common
with any of Ford's other V8s. The heads have no combustion

the 410 (Edsel only, I think), and the Lincoln-only 462. The
engines are seriously heavy (heavier than the 390s!) and not
worth a lot except (maybe) to a Lincoln devotee or an Edsel
guy.

If it's in good running condition and you have something to
bolt it into, take it. If it needs a lot of work, I'd
check around and see what parts I can find before making a
decision. It's actually easier to find parts for the old
Flatheads than it is for those Lincoln mills.

The C6 should be standard-issue sixties-vintage Ford, with
the "FE" (352/360/390) bellhousing bolt pattern. Lincoln
automatics were typically heavy-duty units, in fact, Fords
fitted with Police packages were equipped with the Lincoln

but usually the housings can be removed and replaced with
the regular parts. So even if you can't use the engine,
you might be able to do something with the trans if you
have a 390 or 428 laying around.

Check that trans carefully; if that engine is really a 430
there's a real good chance that it isn't really a C6. The
C6 was first offered in 1966, but the 430 was last used in
1965. The engine COULD be a 462, which was used 1966-1968
and looks identical to the 430, in which case the odds are
it is a C6. If it is, in fact, a 430, then it is likely
that the trans would be the old Ford Cruise-o-Matic. The
C6 has an aluminum case; the Cruise-o-Matic is cast iron.
Again, you might be able to use the trans or sell it to
someone who has an "FE" engine (352/360/390).

Hope this helps....

Mark.

Lay a straight edge along the block deck at various angles and try to fit a
flat blade feeler gauge under it. If the block and head are not warped you
should not be able to get a gauge under the straight edge. Because of the
long head on the 300 warpage is definitely something to watch for.

Subject: Re: FTE 80-96 - Change Transmission Fluid

The only way changing the oil in the tranny could make it slip is if the
metal particles in the fluid are the only thing allowing the clutch plates
to grip in which case you need more than an oil change. If your tranny pan
does not have a drain plug then changing the fluid yourself is a messy
proposition. As far as draining the torque converter it really is not that
much trouble, and most of your lube-and-oil places don't even do it. But if
you want to get ALL the old fluid out it is definitely recommended.
