Hmmm, it *shouldnt* die.
Coils don't need to be grounded.
There isn't usually isn't any electrical connection between the
guts and the case.
A coil that shows less than a few Megohms resistance between any
terminal and the case is no good, or will be soon....

Happy motoring,

My recent update on the Whitney wiring harness was a continuation of a post
from over a month ago, which included my comments that I've had good
experiences with various truck, sports car, and motorcycle parts from
Whitney, and have previously purchased a '52 F1 Panel truck wiring harness
from them. The suggestions about other suppliers are valid, you can get
wiring from lots of others, but its four times the cost, and I don't need the
correct color braided cloth on my wires. Whitney's supplier is in Brazil,
now as it was way back when I got the '52, so it doesn't surprise me too much
that they don't happen to have '51 harnesses hanging around in the warehouse,
although the customer service rep who called me back from Whitney (!) said
there intent was to actually have them on hand.
I'll post again when I hear more, and let y'all know what I get when/if I
get it.

Starting in 76 if the book is right. I have a 77 300 six that came with
the duraspark system. I used the box and wiring on my 390. The box is
the blue style and worked just fine. The box has no sense of howmany
cylinders it has control over. If you could mate it to a V12 it would
still work. I think......

Ford made the 300 six up until 97 with the old body style. The jump to
EFI was made in 87 and I think used a completely different ignition
system. Some of those trucks should be showing up in junk yards by
now. Totaled out and stuff. The EFI is a great system and worked fine
on the 87 that I once had.

I recently worked on a friends Camry...I know I shouldn't touch anything
other than a Ford...but his car was bogging down badly. Tried numerous
things over a two week period. Finally handed it over to one of his
relatives who is a drag racer. He found that the intake manifold gasket
was leaking. There are a few ways to check this but the only one I can
think of now is to spray WD40 around the gasket area and see if the idle
speeds up or improves. This means it is sucking air in through the
gasket area where it should not be leaking. CAREFUL with the WD40 it is
flameable. I'd have a fire extinguisher nearby if you go this route. I
do know there is something else you can spray that is not flameable that
will yield the same results, just can't remember right now what it is.
Anybody else wanna jump in on this one?


His Camry was driveable if you went easy on the accelerator but the
second you put your foot into it...the engine bogged down to the point
of dying. Hope this helps.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1

i have just aquired low mileage 74 cougar with a 351 cleveland motor and a
cruise-a-matic tranny. the car runs very strong and the tranny seems to
shift ok. my questions are is this a good motor? is a cruise-a-matic the
same as a C6 tranny? would this combo make a good replacement for my 460 C6
that are presently in my 65 F 100? i thought that this tranny was a C6 but
when i went to buy pan gasket and filter for the thing they were
different. with some research i found the cruise-a-matic was the same as
what i had. also i have just found a 65 F100 step side short box truck
that has been stored inside (heated) for the last 8 years that isin pretty
good shape. the guy who has it has xtra fenders doors grills bumpers ect
that will go with it. it has a 6 and a 3 speed on the tree that has not
been started for 5 yrs. would this be good buy at $600.00?

The 351 Cleveland is a good motor. It is different than its small block
cousin the 351 Windsor (fuel pump, water pump, heads, block.... nothin'
serious :~) ) It is a good mid-range rpm motor. If is a 4-bbl with 4
bolt mains, you may have something...

> is a cruise-a-matic the same as a C6 tranny?

not even... Closer to the c-4. is that stock?

You would be trading torque for rpms. What do you do w? your 65?

I would consider the '65 as a good deal

Now that I think of it the truck is currectly a bolt on yoke and the
tranny I have is a slip joint...

I have no forward in any gear. Reverse works fine.

yes, no doubt, but i use cloyes timing gear and that gives me +-4 deg. =
to play with. sometimes it makes a difference, sometimes it is =
marginal. my comp cams 292 in one motor made a big difference on top =
when retarded 4 deg. with no noticable difference on bottom. sometimes =
the difference is very small at both ends.

Another aproach is to take the 2500 to 6500 camcan dial it in for say
1000 to 5000. on a torker this stratagy can give you a great deal more
tork but will usually sacrifice high end horse power.

If I were to go down in octane, I would surely need a ride home just =
after
a few miles away from the gas station :)=20

Gotta love that $1.30/gal gas!

Mike

$1.30/gal gas??????????? hell, where i live $1.30 gets me 87 octane, =
and that's the best deal in town! actually, 1.28 gets 87, but it take =
$1.45 sometimes to get 92 or better. race gas costs $4.00/gal or more =
and no gas pumps here have the new unical 100 octane. of course that =
would most likely sell for $1.80 or more here.

i live in the eastern part of PA, right next to Jersey. the gas is =
cheaper in jersey just 1 mile over the bridge, but only by 1 or 2 cents. =....
