not sure. Next question, who makes a good adapter to use a holley
flange on the Q-Jet bolt pattern, I saw in Summit one that was ported,
and one that wasn't, can anyone help me out here as to what the
difference is?

It would be a '70 model from the P/N(D00E), and that would indicate one of the
very few that did use the Q-jet. They also made one in later years that is
spreadbore but not Q-jert compatabile. It uses the Motorcraft spreadbore
pattern which is different from the Rochester and Carter pattern.

Where you located???? I might be interested in a swap. I have a
squarebore(Holley) and a spreadbore(Motorcraft) - both factory.

Subject: FTE Perf - Need 460 Upper Alternator Bracket

We've got an '87 F-350 mini-dump truck here at the shop that had an ori=
gnal
engine of unknown size and now has a 460 from a Lincoln installed (accord=
ing
to the former owner), but unknown what year. The upper alternator bracke=
t has
been replaced by a rig that isn't getting the job done and we'd like to f=
ind a
stock bracket for it; It's discontinued by Ford and no luck locally. :-(=


Anybody got an extra one for sale?

Well P.A.W. was kind enough to replace my 2 piece cam with a 1 piece which
finally arrived today along with the backordered intake and 4V adapter. Yay!
I can finally get back to work on my 400. I do have a question about
modifying the intake. I checked the intake ports on the manifold against the
gasket and there is a significant difference, quite a bit more than there
was on the heads. I don't think there's nearly enough metal to get the ports
even close to the same size as the gasket or the heads. Any thought? Should
I just smooth the ports out and open 'em up as much as I can? Has anyone
ever worked on the Edelbrock Performer 400-EGR before?

TIA

I don't know of one, but depending on the budget an 'Offenhauser' 4-Bbl i=

would be a nice setup and a 4-2 adapter could be used if he's set on havi=

that would work if you supply them with the differing gaskets.

Just send it back and get an Weidland. It will make plenty of off the
throttle power but will sure give out on a higher RPM pull.

Subject: FTE Perf - towing help

I have a 1984 F-150 4x4 with 33" tires.
my question is are the frames on 1/2 ton through 1 ton trucks that different
I am considering putting the 10.25in rear end in my truck with the dual
wheels
and then adding the dually bedsides to add towing capability to my truck.
will it bolt up and will it help, will the 1-ton springs bolt on good. Is
the 1/2 ton
frame pleanty strong for towing a 3horse trailer and firewood and also
towing the occasional "Bobcat" bulldozer with an electric braked trailer??
I know of a lot of 80's F-250 's with 351W and t-18 trannies like mine so
are they that different in power capability? And would a short wheelbase rig
with dually wheels look okay or just very stupid??

Also my braking is very vague.
And rather than looking into rebuilding my 1/2ton brakes
is there an upgrade to a lot more heavier duty brakes??
that can brake a lot bigger and heavier load more efficiently??


thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully help me.

Yes but Weiand doesn't make a smog legal manifold.
