Subject: FTE Perf - Proportioning valve, update

Ok I was close but no cigar :-( Mine looked like it was trash so I pulled and
pulled and pulled and got the kanootin valve out and of course parts went
flying all over the barn. I think I found them all so here goes:

It is a disk valve BUT........the inlets to the wheels are above the disk not
under it like I thought. Pedal pressure pushes the disk off it's seat and allows
fluid to the wheels and takes about 50# of pressure to do it.

The residual part is more complicated.......the disk has a recess on the
bottom which has a rubber gasket or washer in it to seal a bunch of holes like
in a bathroom faucet defuser. The rubber covers the whole thing but the
hole in the bottom of the cylinder only covers half of each hole in the disk so
part of it is open to the MC inlet. Apparently what restricts the return is the
pressure of the rubber against the holes and the bottom of the cylinder and
the stiffness of the rubber resists being pushed away easily. There is also a
little brass cup with a spring pushing it against the rubber from the bottom to
completely close off the openings from the bottom when pressure is applied
which force the whole assy up to access the wheel inlets.

Anyway, it looks like it might take considerable pressure to overcome the
return kanootin, maybe 100-200# and the chamber the two wheel inlets are in
does not separate them like I thought so a second axle hose would be
useless. Hope no one ordered one yet :-(

Now that I've taken it appart it may not work and I think my switch detent
thingy is frozen solid in there anyway but the valving may work, not sure.
I'm going to try it anyway and see what happens. Sure am dissapointed
about the separate wheel thing though, darn :-( I wonder what would happen
if I used two propor.......................:-)

Hey there

I am looking for more information about the Ford 430 engine and
related family. I might have located one and wanted to know if it would
be worth the effort to check it out.

Thanks

Bill--

The only place I know of that has mucho performance stuff for sixes is
Clifford Performance. Check the links page, I think there is one
there. CP is not cheap, but they specialize on sixes. I know that
Offenhauser made a 4bbl manifold for the six for a while.

Good luck,

Chad

Subject: FTE Perf - ADMIN: New offroad truck list

You asked for it, you got. The vote to add a off-road Ford
truck list won by a landslide. This list is now active.

This list is open to all Ford truck/van off-roading and 4x4
related topics. All years and models are allowed.

To s*bscribe send email to majordomo ford-trucks.com with
one of the following in the body of the message:

s*bscribe offroad-list

or

s*bscribe offroad-list-digest

(Replace the * with u)

The web site form does not have a s*bscribe/uns*bscribe
form on it yet. You can expect to see this form updated
this weekend.

Here we grow again!

That's the one. The 430/462 were commonly Lincoln power until the 385
series 460 bumped them. Think the 383/430 were also Edsel designated
engines. Haven't heard of performance parts for them.

what engine is that? is the the MEL series?

Are they worth the steel they are cast with or should I let it get melted
down?

i know nothing about them, but my own opinion would be that they are
forgotten for a reason. maybe not a good reason (they may be a great
engine) but where do you get parts at a decent price, where can you find
someone who knows anything about them like all the little tricks that are
known for SBC and 5.0's and such.

you may want to search for a guru of these engines, but where i don't know.

couldn't even find it at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.wrljet.com/engines/
