Disc brakes are of course harder to hold than drums, but as someone else said,
I think 3 is causing 1 ... I wouldn't worry about this til you had it running
right ... unless of course you have no brakes, then I'd take care of it right

Did you try just snugging up the bolts after a couple of heat cycles ?

I don't really understand what you're saying by 'lower flaps are completely
sealed' ... it would sound to me like you have choked the machine clear off
and aren't feeding it any air if everything's sealed up tight ... also a big
block may draw a bit more vaccuum than a 302 ... not to mention being over-carbbed
unless you are planning a LOT of rpm's on that 302 ... a 302 just doesn't need
as much fuel or air as a big block....

Just my $.02

Hey guys, I got a question about high temp paints.
Truck is a 94 4.0L SC, in Electric Currant Red.
I want to paint some miscellaneous underhood pieces, preferably body color (throttle cable bracket, etc.). I was wondering if anybody knows at what point high temp paint is necessary. I can get the dupli-color stuff at Auto Zone, I know it isn't the best but for the brackets and such I think it would work fine. Anyway, obviously I can't get high temp stuff in that color. So if it's necessary, maybe would it work if I used a high-temp primer or other base coat, or maybe a high temp clear coat over it, or maybe both?? Or will I need to select some generic color that is available in high-temp??
