Subject: Re: detonation problem

Joel, first question, did this happen before or after you put the spacer in there
?

>the problem is detonation above 2500-2700 rpm
>in 3 and 4th gear. NOT in 2nd i can floor it with the secondaries
>opened in 2nd up to 4500rpm with no detonation
>but when the secondaries open in 3rd or 4th around 2500-2700 rpm
>it has a pinging sound(yes i am sure it is a pinging sound)

This is 'cause you're going much faster and working the motor harder with the
higher gears ...

>it has NO egr or computer stuff on it just, fuel-fire-air-electricity

>also i have richened the jets in the secondaries by 1jet up.
>should i go to about 2or3 jets up.
>also the initial timiing is 10 BTDC and the total is only 34.

>i have been told that this engine(8.2:1 or 8.5:1) should be able to run 36
- 40 degrees total timing, whats wrong. the engine only has 2500 miles on it
and my old engine did this too.

>please can i get some suggestions?

You pulled the EGR off, and upped the jet size, but have you checked to really
be sure that's enough ? If you lean it out too much you will get the pinging
problem you describe ... that is a fairly low compression and should be able
to run lots of advance based on pre-ignition, but if its some other cause, then
it doesn't matter what the timing is ... what sort of temps is the motor runnin
at ? What thermostat,etc....

I have a 1996 Ford F-150 with a 5.8L auto, I was wondering if there is anyone out there that could give me some advise on what performance modifications I can make without adversely affecting my gas milieage.


Thanks for your time. dfrey14 hotmail.com

Many of the people with ford-trucks.com or ford-trucks.net accounts
are either not checking their mail or in the case of ".com" addresses,
not having their mail software delete the messages after retrieval.

This situation is getting out of control, with half the mail queue
space being taken up by mail 3-9 weeks old. This weekend, I will be
installing software that will delete all mail over 3 weeks old. FTE
is not meant for online storage of mail.

A "Nascar Craftsman Truck Series" forum has been added to
the web site message boards. In addition being a place for
you to discuss the races, I'll also be posting Ford truck
series press releases there.
