Subject: Motor Oil

In my former days as an employee of XXXXXXX Oil, parent Company of
XXXXXline motor oil, Much research was done on the effects motor oil
weights had on engines. Some studies were done on various police
departments who had the 4.6L Crown Vics....tried to run
10W40......owners manual calls for 5W30. The police departments almost
burnt the motors up because the oil was too thick and engine tolerances
were so tight, couldn't get enough oil on the top end of the motor.

Other interesting/old news regarding single weight oil. Some of the
studies showed multi-visc. oils do not break down as they should and did
not provide adequate summer time protection on the "thicker" end of the
oils. In other words, 5W 30 won't do the job as well as Super HPO 30=20
or Super HPO 40 single weigght oils in the summer. The HPO oils are
high detergent oils which should be run in temps that are consttant and
always over 32 degrees F.
I for one run Super HPO 30 in my 71 F-100 360 and in my 89 Merc Grand
Marq. (302, 130,000 trouble free tight and dry miles) in the summer
months when the weather is nice. In the winter, I switch to 5W30 in the
Mercury and 10W 30 in the F-100. I run full synthetic 5W 30 in my 95
Special Service Crown Victoria LX (4.6 Liter)year round.=20

There are several advantages to synthetic and some disadvantages...
Advantages......better lubrication qualities, better heat disipation,
Studies from "the"
company showed two identical engines dynoed for 100,000 plus miles.=20
Changes were made at appropriate intervals, engines were torn down. The
motor with synthetic oil provided
little to no indications of wear. The other standard mineral based oil
showed much greater signs of wear.

Disadvantages........Cost, AND you still need to change oil every 3,000
miles or less depending on your driving situation.

As far as putting modern oil in an old engine.....the more advanced, the
better....
it can help with protection better than the old non-detergent oils. As
far as putting
new oils into an old engine with sludge build up that has been running
non-detergent oil, it may braek things loose. Sounds logical to me.

Make your own decisions, experiment a little, see which oil runs best in
your engine. CHanging brands and oil weghts will not cause
problems.....unless you run a motor oil with a high parafin base, then
you can start having problems. I AM TRYING TO KEEP=20
BRANDS OUT OF THE MOTOR OIL DEBATE. We all have preferences....that is
why I am in the Ford camp. Motor oils are like milk and gasoline(for
the most part)
They all come from basically the same place (pipeline shipments came to
our terminal from other companies, barges came from other companies,
and we put in our own additives). Oils (been to a plant that was
bottling oil for Companies a, b, c, d, e, etc. including there own
branded oil from the same spout!) and gasolines have different
additives which make them slightly different. NO Flame wars here
please! I know from experience on the pipelines and barges gas is all
the same, except for the additives
( I recommend buying 89 or 92-94 octane, they have a greater percentage
of additives
and detergents which help keep modern injectors and fuel systems cleaner
than 87 octane)

Sorry this was so lengthy! Hope it helps someone.

You are correct the words you a looking for are top of piston to center
line of pin. I do not support this idea if a person wants a 390 there
are plenty of them to be had; I suggested the use of a 352 HiPro crank
and rod as they fit the 360 and will enable it to turn 6500 RPM. The
360 was a gas crunch engine and Ford's attempt to lighten up the FE
weakened the crank and rods to the point that the constant abuse of any
performance at all would cause the crank to break in front of the second
main from the back or #4 I believe and provided the crank survived the
rods had a nasty habit of turning loose of pistons at the rist pins. If
a rod turns loose at the pin the ammount of mass swinging and the
leangth of it will break the block through the web (I have seen this
happen.

So far, lots of good advice on the PowerStroke from a number of list
members -- it seems these things have a passionate following around here &
I'd love to hear more from all the owners.

Anyways, as for the Dodge...the Cummins is a wonderful engine (I miss that
turbo whistling all the time like the big rigs), but the truck is still a
Chrsyler product. Horrible brake problems, with days on end spent trying
to stop the pulling problems. They finally got it so it pulled right
instead of left, and was told that was acceptable according to Dodge --
truth is, they've got a design flaw they can't seem to isolate, or
therefore fix. It also had wierd rubbing noises from the front end, a host
of minor problems, and I only put 16500 miles on it. The brakes problems
qualified me for Lemon Law pursuit, but then Chrysler charges you $.15-.25
for miles driven, and you still have to pay for MSRP differences in the new
truck. That is through the arbitration process. I could have sued, but
lawyers ain't free either. So, I said f #! it, sold the thing (remember,
Dodge said it was OK), and got me a handsome, dependable, we've built 'em
for years so we know they're solid, tough as nails F350.

.....'nuff said...

It would be a major conversion, but you would need a divorced Dana 20
(or similar) transfer case and a Dana 44 front axle to match it.
Steering and springs wuld be the biggest problems, especially if you
have a twin I-beam front suspension. It would be easier to drop your

Still working on 89 Ford F350 with electonic/transmission problems in
E40D transmission. Have replaced "FIPL" switch 3 times in 2 weeks, 1st
one installed "backwards?!" by Ford Dealership, still not running
right. Solenoid has been discussed, maybe new wiring harness. Jerry at
Mr. Transmission in Owen Sound (519-371-1110) very knowledgeable on Ford
transmissions. He has reset "FIPL" couple of times. Thinks problem is
wiring harness origin rather than the internal valve solenoid body.
Anybody with any other thoughts on this?

Ted isn't that bad, he quoted me $1200 in labor for the 302 swap in my
truck, and told my friend that works for him off and on that he would
install a rebuilt T5 for his stang for $1200 in whatever payment he
wanted to make. Knowing my friend, he will just work it off.

Au contrair! 1970s Ford distributors commonly had TWO vacuum lines to the
advance mechanism - one was advance and one was retard. The retard line
was supposed to be for decelleration only but it was an emissions-related

DO NOT remove the PCV valve from your engine it sucks the pressure

If the thermostat setting is too low the emmision switches for the vacume (sp?)
will not open and your milage will be crap. Emgines must run at a certain temp
for max. efficiency.

Here's a way you can have electronic ignition without changing the
distributor.
There is a company in central California called Pertronix. (They advortise in
all of the perfomance mags.)
For under $100 they will sell you a devise that replaces the points and hooks
to the coil. That's it. No changing the distributor.

I dont think you will have a prob except for the exh mounting. The deck =
height on a 351w is taller than that of the 302 so the outlets of the =
manifolds maybe at a different angle. Other than that It should be a =
good install
