Subject: RE: FTE Perf - compression ratio's

sorry, clarify this a little. that would be 0.000 running clearance. the
build clearance would be more. the guys that run this way sneak up on
0.000 clearance a little at a time on each new engine build till they find
the right build clearance. at teardown they look for signs of the piston
touching the head. this is of course harder on straight wedge heads like
the Windsor family IMHO. Then again, i may be wrong. i ain't ballsy
enough (rich enough?) to try zero clearance despite all of it's advantages.

aluminum rods complicate this more, with the increase expansion rate they
need more clearance. something like 3 times IIRC. Chris, are you there?
shed some light on this subject for us from your experience.

You're talkin' Bad Boy tolerances. What heat expansion allowance is
included
in an aluminum to steel clearance of .0.001"? That has to be an interesting
number.

The closer you make this spec to zero the more care you need to take with
such minor details as rod, center to center length variance between rods,
piston compression height varience and deck relationship to main bearing
bores from one end to the other etc.. If you have no accurate way to
measure these parameters then 0.020" is too little IMHO but if you do and
they can be adjusted to match within 0.001" or so then you can bring them
right together as Sleddog suggested but only if you can match these
dimensions.

Subject: FTE Perf - ADMIN: Anti-SPAM

A vendor has just recently cruised by our site and harvested email
addresses from the pictorial and is sending unsolicited email (spam)
to list members. They've just been chastised about it. If it
continues, I'll announce who they are to the lists so you'll know
who to stay away from.

Last night, an automated web email address harvester hit our site
and nearly brought it down. I fought with the stupid thing for 4
hours because it was stuck cycling through our shopping cart pages.
The web logs were building up faster than I could remove them.

Due to these two recent episodes, I'm going to revert back to a
policy I used to have on the web site: all email addresses on the
site will now have *spam-remove* in the middle of the address. This
will help prevent address harvesting.

Subject: FTE Perf - ADMIN: More on spam... please read.

I just did some investigation and found who hit our server last night.
Check this out..... and read it all before you send any nasty email
to the spammer if you're one of the recipients.

Our logs indicated that IP 209.67.161.130 was the culprit. I did a
lookup and that resolved to globalpac.com

The spammer, John's F100s, was using kminet.net for the email server.
Did a lookup on kminet.net and guess what? Its hosted by globalpac.com!

Do not jump down John's F100s for this. They were, in many ways, a
victim, just like Ford Truck Enthusiasts and many of the list members.
The email address harvester from kminet.net caused major damage to my
shopping cart database and its going to take a while to rebuild.
Kminet.net is getting billed for all my time fighting off their attack.

I just got done talking to Diana Wall, of John's F100s. She was
pretty distraught. She was told by the marketers at kminet.net that
the mailing list they provided contained addresses of people who had
requested Ford truck products. As is sometimes the case, an innocent
victim can have their reputation ruined by the deceit of a spam
company. Diana had no idea that kminet.net just harvested the addresses
from our site, and who knows how many other Ford truck sites. She
didn't know it was spam, she thought the people wanted the emails.

For the record, Diana extends her deepest apologies. She offered to
email the people who were spammed but was afraid that it might make
matters worse. John's F100 has a good reputation in the classic
Ford truck community and I don't think this incident should change
that. Please send complaints to kminet.net as they are the true culprits.
I'm preparing an invoice right now to kminet.net for all the time I
spent last night fighting this off.
