Boys: I am new to the list, and have my first dumb qesution. What is the
real differences bewtween a 302 and 351W pan that stops them from being
interchanges with each other? I have 2 front sump 302 pans (1 chrome, 1
polished aluminum) and would like to know if it is possible to modify
one to fit the 351W. Any suggestions?

Subject: FTE Perf - Windsor SR Heads and Cam Seletion

Guys:

Need to know your suggestions on helping confirm my cam choice for my 68
Merc M100. I am currently building up a 372W stroker/auto with a stock
convertor, 3.25 gears, BFG295R50-15s on the rear.

Truck is a 2WD, short box, show truck/toy, weighs 3300 lbs, that sees
3000 miles /year. Drivability - I want to cruise 2500 RPM 60 mph all
day long, smoke the tires at the lights, and do some very light utility
trailer pulling from time to time. Wish to have power and torque down in
the lower/mid range.

Currently I have a set of new 2.02/1.60 aluminium World Products Windsor
SR heads. The heads came assembled, with the 1.25" dia springs (100
lbs), and the castings appear a little rough in the chamber, so I was
going to clean them up. Am thinking of new Edbk RPM Performer, Crane
energizer roller rockers (1.6), chrome moly pushrods, etc.

My question is, I have selected a Crane Powermax cam, H-272-2, which is
a hydraulic, dual pattern cam with specs as follows: duration 0.05 is
216/228, max. lift is 0.484/0.512, lobe separation 112, adv. duration
272/284. Am I ok with this set up?

Would also like feedback on if this cam will cause piston interference
(stock 351W replacements), do I need to notch them, and finally, do I
need head studs for this application.

Fords Rule!

Subject: FTE Perf - Re: "Ready to Run" Electronic Distributors

Has anybody tried one of these new Ford small block "ready to run"
electronic distributors from Accel and MSD yet?

I am considering purchasing one for the 351W I am building and wanted to
know the real world opinion of them. Is it a good idea to have the
electronics under the cap like that (heat vapour, vibration?) - just
asking'

In terms of cost, it would appear that they are cheaper then a new
distributor combined with an MDS-6A, or have I missed a "gotcha" here?
