Darrin,
Thanks. I had a tranny shop tell me it was the AODE but I wanted to make sure.
I have been experiencing some of the same problems as the E40D guys. I was
also going to attempt to hook up one of those TC unlock switches. I guess I'll
have to take it in for service as it is shifting weird. As Chris said with the
power I'm making I should have torn it up by now....I think I have!

Subject: FTE Perf - Compression ratio-300 I6

Hey Guys:

I've been trying to find out the compression ratio of my '82 F100 300
I6. It seemed a simple question--at one time!

I make it a habit to buy a factory Technical Service Manual for every
vehicle I get. I've had about 6 different ones, mostly GM, but even
Toyota and AMC. I picked up one for my truck at a swap meet, and found
out later that I only got two volumes of the three-volume set (the
emissions volume was missing). I bought a Chilton's to supplement the
TSM (and get the emissions stuff). amazingly, though every statistic you
can think of is included in the TSM, compression ratio is not among
them. In fact, when I decided to dig out the old formula and compute it,
I discovered that chamber volume wasn't included, either!

I've posted the question to the 80-96 list twice, but never got an
answer.

Am I REALLY going to have to pull my head and CC the chambers, then
compute the comp ratio? Does Ford consider the compression ratio Top
Secret or something? I'd like to know how much I can mill my head--but
without a starting point, I'd be guessing--and I don't like to guess.

Does ANYBODY know the compression ratio of a stock '82 300 engine? Or
maybe where I can find out?

HELP!

I don't know what Ford's secrets are. but in their 1987 Specifications
booklet, the list the 4.9L (300cid)
nominal CR as 8.8:1. this was for all L6's regardless of truck size, man or
auto trans.
I dont have an 82 manual, but in my '83 Engine manual they don't give the
CR, but they do give the combustion chamber
cc's as 73 to 79 cc.
hope this helps.

Thanks, I'm working from home now (on the lists) so my time is
limited but I want to keep in touch with a few of the boys (and girls
too) that I was talking with before. I can't handle the traffic on the
main list now but will stay on this and the PfGroup list and the
Bronco list of course (which is really stretching my time limits by
itself :-))

I have reserved a room at Pigeon Forge in the Grand Hotel, ground
floor, facing the convention center so am looking forward to May 13
and the Ford Truck Nationals this year. Hope to meet a bunch of
you guys and gals there :-) I'll be driving the T bird if the stupid
AODE holds up. Bronco doens't have air and I sincerely hope to
bring my wife so we can pretend we're on vacation :-)
