Several folks out there are going to feel the twitch to respond but here goes (Keep in mind I like race engines). I always do these things on first crank 1) use an old oil shaft and prime the system ( I do not turn the engine over at this time to avoid losing cam lube off the lobes) 2) emediatly after priming I have the wife cranke it and watch the RPM gauge ( bring it up to between 1500 and 2000 RPM and hold that for about 10 minutes (this avoids wiping a lobe)) 3) after Hi RPM run I bring it down to 800 or so RPM's and cover the radiator with a single piece of card board and get the temp to 200 deg and regulating with the card board hold it there for fifteen +/- minutes then shut it down let it cool off then repeat the heat up (usually twice more) then change the oil befor the vehical moves.

Now with all that out of the way. I'm sure (could be wrong) that you are not to far over stock valve seat pressure and that you are not running moly rings so the above will probably be a little much. Prime the engine start it maintain a good solid idle and bring it to operating temp. let the engine run for about 15 to 20 minute shut it down and change the oil and filter (some folk will argue that this is a premature oil change; however, if there is any thing that is floating about (grit,shavings ect...) I like the get them out as soon as possible.
Drive the vehical as normal Excluding any stinuos task for +/- 1500 miles chang the oil and filter again and you are ready to race.

Sorry you feel that way. every one has thier preferences. I like FE's And doesn't alwas trip peoples trigers either. People that run HiPro are generally good the ask about things because they are hard to a fault on parts and if a certain part is breakable we'll find it more often than not.

Not all of us Knock the 351M/400. I personally recognize them as good solid equipment. Folks some people look for adversity and unrest and it is to bad because we're here to try to help each other and this type crap damages those efforts. If you do not like something simple say I do not and leave it at that. Some of you guys sound like Chevy owners.

My experience is that decelerating helps cool and lube the rings.

TO seat the rings (especially if you are running chrome rings), after the engine has seen 50/100 miles, you need to do a few _short_ WOT runs, say from 2000 to 3000 RPM, and then decelerate. THe WOT combustion pressure puts extra pressure on the rings, forcing them into the cylinder walls. Then the deceleration flushes them with oil, cleaning out the crosshatches and cooling the rings. _Then_ its time to change the oil.

This thread is probably one of those "religious" issues

Today we received 4 digests at approx 30k each. List activity is enormous. I would like to suggest to the list that if this kind of activity continues for more than a week that we vote on a split again. If a split (pre 1980 and post 1980) does occur, I will have to ask for donations to pay for the second list. Total cost is $25 for the 1st 3 months and $15 every 3 months there after. I would prefer to pay for a year all at once so I wouldn't have to beg for money every 3 months. Total yearly cost for additional list is: $70. I think that between 500+ users we can manage to come up with it. Naturally, this would be voluntary - no one will be compelled to pay, but if we can't come up with $70, no second list. Users would be welcome to join one or both lists.

Opinions?

Right. Another thing to do is be patient; if you send a message, and it doesn't appear immediately, that doesn't mean it won't. Give it a bit before re-sending your message. (Sometimes the geek who configures the mailing list server does something _really_ stupid which can delay messages. Yes, that would be me...)

A bit of administrivia: there have been a number of people subscribed to the lists here against their will by malcontents using the various web pages to make people's life miserable. We have taken steps to prevent this from happening in the future - if you are one of those people, _please_ don't send messages to the list. Send to the "list mom" address at the bottom of each message, or to me, or to the postmaster lofcom.com with a _polite_ request to be removed.

I promise to now quiet my keyboard so the list can get back to the regularly-scheduled discussion on Ford trucks, already in progress...

A good break in consists of the usual high RPM 15-2K for 10-15 or NORMAL op temp for 5-7 minutes then surging from 800-1500 up and down to incorporate First the cam break-in then the rims. YOU should not exceen about 45 mins of op temp at low rpm. Once this is done just get on the road and do some highway driving with surging everyonce in a while. JMOHO

Subject: Helping out to defer admin costs....My $.02 Message-Id: Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Hey Ken and all,

What happened to the suggestion of voting on helping you with a donation to help defray some of the List costs you experience? I saw some posts on the subject, but then none. I never emailed my thoughts on this so here goes:

I don't think it would be a good idea to require admission for access to this list. I think it would be a turn off to a lot of potential Ford truck enthusiasts if they had to pay initially. I also think, that if I were in your shoes as admin, it would be a nightmare trying to keep track of who paid this month, or if someone paid for a whole year and then wants out after 3 months, etc.... Seems like that aspect would take the fun out of what this list is all about. And I am no accountant, but it seems that this would then turn into a business for you and you'd run into a whole bunch of other issues that you may or may not want to worry about.

With that being said, I also put myself in your admin shoes, and I think that it's unfair that 500+ people (give or take a few) have an awesome forum like this that exists nowhere else (at least a few months ago when we were first discussing the possibilities) that costs them nothing and Ken Payne is forking over the bucks to make this possible.

I guess what I'm getting at is this is obviously a complex issue. I think my feeling is that we as list members could send you a donation on a voluntary basis, to help with the costs you incur in running this list. Heck, we've got 500+ members, and if 1/2 sent you 5 bucks each, you'd have $1250 bucks for the year. (This is only an example, to make my point.) Now I agree with a couple of the college folks' posts awhile back that the bucks for some people are hard to come by. We've got an 9 month old baby, one income, and find it difficult to keep ourselves above water, but I'd be the first guy to send a couple of bucks to Ken. I also paid for my 4 year electrical engineering degree BY MYSELF, so you college guys will be hard pressed to convince me that a Friday nite's beer tab couldn't be forgone for ONE nite!! ;) (If only I'd have saved that money that went to MY beer tabs!!!! I'd probably not have to work now!!!
;-{D

Anyways, my intent is NOT to flame anyone by any means... This is just my

thoughts on this subject. I guess that I would just would hate for Ken to say one day that he can't continue with this list...

Does anyone have any further comments?
Sorry for the long email and thanx for listening!

Hey Ken,

First off, Congrats on the fine admin work you do for all of us (who can read directions!) on
this list!

What is it with all the folks not knowing how to unsubscribe themselves lately? As a couple of people said earlier this week... _This Annoys Me!!!_ I guess what "they" say about sniffing glue as a teenager causes brain damage is true!!! ;-)

I have a suggestion:
Can you modify the List software so that whenever it sees "unsubscribe" or "desubcribe me" sent incorrectly to the whole List that the FAQ and the ENTIRE LIST ARCHIVES are automatically downloaded to the offender?!!! That'll learn 'em!!! :-{O
As for the List milestone,
Why................it only seems like yesterday when a few of us would just CC: each other for Ford Truck info! Now, through your dedication, we're up to 500+!!! Just amazing! Keep up the fantastic job!

Looked like pretty decent sheet metal
Painted white (not the best paint job up close, but it's better than mine!!!!)
Re-done interior, with modern steering column Alum. mags
Fiberglass Tonneau cover
Appeared to have a small block chevy (SBC) engine $1995
Located in south central Indiana.

I can find out more details about this if someone is interested. I have no other affiliation with this vehicle other than just thought it was cool and I stopped to check it out.....

Message-Id: Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Hey Folks,

All of us who have been around the internet and on usenet for a while have seen this crap of some slob asking all of us to send him a buck to help him out.

Well we have a pretty good thing here and if its time to put up or shut up I say WHERE DO I SEND MY MONEY?

We enjoy the fruit of Ken and Charlie's labor and if Ken needs our help to keep it going I'm in.

M

BTW As to this unsub etc... these F! #$%^ A*&^%$# need a brick dropped in thier mailboxes.

Thanks for the space to vent N rant
