Hey Steve,

Isn't all this reasoning and logic stuff just great!

Oh well, we know what we are talking about.

Sure the HiPer ignition might work a *little* better, but you can upgrade the
stock ignition a little at a time and still save money. It is just SO EAST and
CHEAP. I think that was your point, I know it was mine!

Here is my whole story about how I installed my ignition:
When I was 15 I bought a '71 F-100 w/ a 302/C4. The 302 was junk! I bought a
351M/C6 (had about 80,000 mi on it) and installed it myself. I was clueless abut
the ignition, but I was smart enough to keep everything from the 'donor truck'.
I tried to find a mechanic who could hook it up for me. Two said they couldn't
do it and a third said it would require rewiring the entire cab! I was forced to
buy a point distributor and install it. About two years later I rebuilt the 351M
and had the C6 rebuilt. After that was done the truck sat alot (doing body work
and it took longer that the engine/trans work). While doing the bodywork I
studied the wiring diagrams of a '71 and a '77 Ford truck. I thought to myself
"It can't be this easy!?". I decided to go for it. Works great! That rebuild has
about 80,000 mi on it now and still gets GREAT mileage. (And still no oil leaks
from that disconnected PCV valve, but thats a whole 'nother story).

Some people are just set in their ways and refuse to listen to reasoning and
logic. It is like talking to a cow. No matter what you say, all you get back is
a big MMOOOWWWWW. (:

Have a nice day.

Harry.

Message-ID:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

hey guys....I need some help, I have a strong running 302 ford, but I
want to make some serious street power from it. I was wondering if
anyone out there has built up a 302 before. I would like to make around
350-400 horse if I can. I would also like to keep my budget under 1000.
if thats possible. Right now I already have an aluminum single plain
edelbrock manifold, with an edelbrock 750 fcm and headman headers. As
far as labor goes, I can do a lot myself, and I have a mechanic of 40
years to help me. so that cost doesn't need to be included. I am just
looking for piston, cam combinations to make this kinda horse. And if I
can make that kinda power and keep my stock crank. Should I keep my
stock 302 heads, but take them to a machine shop and have them worked
over? or find some 351W heads for it? Help on this would GREATLY be
appreciated. And if there is no way possible to get that power from
that motor, I'll toss it and build the 429 I have sitting in a feild.
But for weight purposes and lower costing parts, I wanted to keep the
302. Thanks!!!!

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

As of today, we have enough money to pay for both lists with a
few bucks left over. I'm going to make arrangments this evening
to have the new list up ASAP. Unless we run into any snags
we should have another list up and running withing 24-48 hours.
Full details on switching to the 1980+ list will be given ASAP.
Older truck list should not require any changes since there are
more old truck members - simpler this way.

I'm sorry I doubted you guys (oh me of little faith) - I was
getting worried that we wouldn't be able to cover the costs.
Thanks! Thats not to say that you should not send if you were
planning to because in 3 months we'll have to fork over another
$60 bucks to LOFCOM. I'm going to set up a quarterly emailing
(or semi-annually based on contributions) to ask for donations
if and when we need it. We may not need a mailing for a while
if more donations arrive this week. Again, thanks!

Message-ID:

well, I'm not one to argue about anything, specially the PCV valve
theory, and what I figure is that if there is any chance of something
going wrong, why do it? Specially from what I've seen here, its like
50/50 on agree or dissagree. And with that I don't find it worth the
lil "Risk" of harming my baby. Plus I'm curious if the type of
motor/carb you are doing it on has an effect on how it works. I have
heard of a guy doing it on a peice of junk scout (no offence to the
scout's, this one was just trashed)
and he said it did make a difference, but thats probably due to the
motor being worn out, I don't know. Alright, I hope this gets sorted
out soon, it seemes to be getting pretty hostile on this topic. I just
say go with how you feel on the subject, and go with what makes more
sence to you.....Thanks,

Exhaust Gas Recirculation. This is used to prevent the formation of Oxides
of Nitrogen (NOx), one of the 3 components in automotive emissions that are
harmful. The reintroduction of exhaust gasses into the fuel/air mixture
lowers the combustion temp below the point that NOx is formed (2500 degrees
F, I think).

I wouldn't. There are engine flushing compoounds you can add to
your oil to help clean it out and, from what I've heard, switching back
and forth between standard and synthetic oil is not a good idea. In fact,
you could even run a quart of ATF instead of oil for a few hundred miles -
should help clean things out nicely.

This is just a suggestion since the list content is up to you

concerning the "Badge wars" that have been going on. I don't
think we should jump all over someone because they don't

opposite. Just a thought, do what you feel is best... you

A felony is anything that is punishable for more than one year in prison. It is
NOT a felony to 'tamper' with emissions! No I am not that familiar with FEDERAL
laws, only STATE laws. Were I live we have no inspections.

I would like to do this to! Dose the belt just come over
the back of the seat? If it has an upper bracket that
attaches to the cab, would something need to be welded to
the cab? Could you please explain the motor? What activates
it inertia or letting it go forward then pulling it back
out, or other ? Currently I have only the lap belt.
Thanks!

FYI --if flushing out sludge is the object here:

A buddy of mine works at the local Ford dealer as a wrench and he says they have
a machine that, when one hose is hooked to the oil filter outlet and another
hose is hooked to the drain plug hole, flushes solvent through the motor.
Anybody ever heard of an item like this? I don't think he'd lie.

I don't know if the procedure works well or not, but I guess it's an option. I
hear the only thorough way to get rid of sludge is tear down/boil/rebuild.

I may stop by to check this machine out one day. I'll let any interested parties
know.

I wouldn't. There are engine flushing compoounds you can add to
your oil to help clean it out and, from what I've heard, switching back
and forth between standard and synthetic oil is not a good idea. In fact,
you could even run a quart of ATF instead of oil for a few hundred miles -
should help clean things out nicely.

We received our Ford build sheet today and it said our truck came with a
3.50 conventional rear axle. We are still not very well educated on axle....
