Subject: tail lamps fixed


My problem was the brake pedal switch orientation. I didn't have a Chiltons when swapping brake booster, and I had the switch (with regard to its length) pointing vertical, rather than horizontal. Don't ask me why it's worked a month or so (I really did check)...

Thanks for the replies, I don't have to drive like a grandma any more in fear of being rear ended.

So how many of you Ford enthusiasts are hams running APRS from the house and
or mobil?

What is your mobil setup?

Thanks and 73

For the parking brakes, check if the cable is shot.  You should take off the
drum and inspect them to see what the problem is of course (duh).

One bit of advice is that if your brake drums are at their limit for
turning, replace them.  I wrecked a new set of shoes because the drums were
at their limit.  The shoes didn't fit well because of the increased
diameter.  This caused them to spring open and broke the lining off the
shoes.  I ended up replacing the drum anyway after that happened, so I
didn't save anything and had to do the brake repair twice on that side.

Can anyone pass along to me the formula for calculating the CFM throughput
of an engine.  Thanks

I believe it would be the following:

((RPM * Disp (cu. in.))/1728) * volumetric efficiency.

1728 is 12 cubed, to give you cubic feet from cubic inches in the
displacement.

volumetric efficiency is a factor related to the efficiency of the intake
and exhaust systems.  It's also speed related I believe too.

Ve (my abbreviation) means what percentage of the "asked for" intake is
actually recieved in the cylinder.  The reason that this is dependent on
speed is that a less efficient manifold can provide all the air the
cylinders need, given enough time, but when the engine speed increases, the
time available decreases.  Hopefully that makes sense.

Ack!  I think I noticed a mistake.  Since the engine is a 4 stroke, the
displacement should be divided by two, since it takes two revolutions to
clear a given cylinder.

More flames "welcome".

I seem to recall getting pretty close using RPM x CU.IN. / 3456
for example a 350 cu in engine would need about 600 cfm to crankout 6000 rpm

350 * 6000 = 2,100,000

2100000/3456  =  607 CFM

We used this back in the 60/70's to size carbs. No sense putting on a 780
when a 650 would do the job. Other formulas are likely more accurate, but
this seemed to work well.

New Process 435 4-speed manual transmission
Ford 8.8 in rear axle, 3.08 grar ratio
If it is a 4x4, Dana 44 IFS front axle

Got one of these myself with the same setup., 'cept it is a '83

Look for N3IP in SE Pa.

N3IP is the DelcoDUG Club station, currently beaconing static position text
and digipeating witrh an Icom IC-2AT, KPC3 and a Radio Shack amplifier.

Also look for W4RFJ-1, Roger is running a Kenwood TM-D700 with a Garmin
35Hva GPS from his Explorer (FTE content).
