You mentioned a timing problem with the new motor, and a possibility
occurred to me since you mentioned converting the distributor. Are you sure
you got the distributor back "in time"? It is possible to put it back in
180 degrees "off". Sometimes the engine will still run, just not very well.
(Yes, I did this once.) You really shouldn't have to set timing at ADC on
an engine like the 302/5.0.

I have a '55 F100 with a 318c.i., 360heads, Le Baron torsion bar
suspension, AT. I want to replace the exhaust manifold with block
hugger headers, but haven't found a manufacturer that can tell me if
theirs will fit the space between steering box & starter. Anybody have
experience with this?

What harmonic balancer are you running ? Are you sure that really lines up
with he crank's TDC ? I don't know why it wouldn't, but sometmes you get to
swapping things around and timing pointers move and that sort of thing ...


I'd think you could probably pull close to 14 degrees (Before TDC) if you're
running stock compression ratio's and such ...

if its really after top dead center it would probalby not run over about a thousand
rpm's ... a friend of mine set his a 0 once ... said it was a screamer to 3K
then it just died off ...

I am in the market for an older diesel.
2wd f350 extended or crew cab , dually
i need to find one under 5000$
so yes it will need some work
it will probably be an 80's model maybe early 90's
the trucks here in arkansas are cheap.
so what do i need to look out fro in the 6.9 and 7.3 diesels.
i want one that will pull good and cruiser on the highway good at 65-70mph
and the automatic of those years is a c-6 so with a 4.11 ratio.
that would be revving pretty high right??
I need to know exactly what to look for like any information i need to ask the previous owner like do they need head work after 100,000 miles or anything like that. also what mpg and life should i expect from a well maintained
6.9or7.3 diesel???


thanks
please reply directly
