I'm with you Azie. I went home last night and drooled over an old Hemmings
I had laying around, then I cried when I saw the price tag. Gotta Love 'em,
though!

I'm jealous - wish I had any 427, much less a side oiler of '63/'67
vintage.

Hey fellow FORD nuts! I have a 1987 F-150 Supercab I bought brand new. Well
it's time to have some fun!!! It currently has a 302 EFI and a manual 4-speed
trans. I have found a 1976 Merc. wagon with a 460 and a C-6 trans. Its Runs
and all the parts are there. I have done a little research and have found it
is 8.5 to 1 CR, a little low I think? I want to completly go through Motor and
Trans. adding HP via cam and head work ,headers, high rise and??? + plus a
shift kit for the tranmission.

My question is .. Am I starting with the right engine and does anyone have any
advice or sugguestions. All the brackets , PS, AC, Air Pump, ect. are still
intact.
When finished my truck it will still have to pass emissions.

Subject: FTE Perf - K&N Filters

I recently completed my totally non-scientific test comparing the particle
filtering ability of a 3" x 15" K&N air filter versus the Fram paper
element. This originated when I didn't have time to clean my truly dirty K&N
air filter and used the paper element. At the time, it looked like the paper
element was keeping my oil looking cleaner (the scientific test) than the
K&N had accomplished.

I ran the K&N for 1,000 miles after an oil/filter change. I then changed the
oil/filter and ran the paper element for 1,000 miles. Oil was much cleaner
with the paper element and the oil filter seemed heavier (wish I had weighed
them). Driving was all in town, with the usual stop, go and clean it out
every once in awhile. I like my oil to look clean, it bothers me when I
think about additional matter getting between those expensive engine bearing
surfaces.

K&N claims their filter gets better the dirtier it gets and additional HP
from the increased air flow. IMHO, there is no free lunch.

The federal emissions gestopo says you can't put an older engine in your
ride and be legal. Pollution standards legislation tightened up year by year
as the feds forced Motor City to meet average mpg requirements. Now if you
decided to register it in a place that doesn't beg to get at the federal
highway funding pig trough, you're getting interested in making a truck.
Good combination and you're right about the c/r.

Congratulations. How long did you run it on initial fire and what rpms?
Would it initially crank with all the plugs in?
