    Nothing special needed to end up with a reliable motor but do not use a high volume oil pump in a fresh rebuild, there is no need for it if bearing tolerances are correct, it put extra load on the pump driveshaft and cam for no reason, and it won't fit nicely in a stock oilpan. The Ford 1 piece rubber oilpan and valve cover gaskets are fantastic as in no leaks and not that expensive.

    Thanks again. I'd appreciate any other advice you might have for the rebuild. I figure I should do it right the first time...

    Yes get a Comp 31-255-5, the stock cam in this motor is brutally small and THE reason this motor is such a pooch. No this won't upset the EFI system.

    Hi, I've been following your posts- you seem to know a lot about these trucks. I have a 1990 Bronco with a stock, tired, leaking 5.0. The only modification done is shorty headers. I bought some GT40 heads at a junkyard and had a valve job done in anticipation of an engine rebuild (I'm not doing it myself). Anyway, my question is should I purchase an aftermarket cam or am I going to run into problems with the SD fuel injection. I really don't want to modify the FI. I just want a little bit more power.

    What would you recommend for spring weights?

    Yes with upgraded springs it'll be fine, but don't use dual springs or you will have binding problems with the valve stem seals, instead use a heavier set of single springs.

    I forgot to add I'll be putting on new springs. If I install springs that can handle the lift, 1.7s shouldn't be a problem?

    You can't use 1.7 rockers with that cam and stock springs but it's not because of valve clearance it's because of coil bind.

    Is it likely that I'll have clearance issues with the 35-512-8, GT40 heads, and 1.7s? I'm getting a set of GT40s and all they need is rocker arms.

    So what would be a good set of springs to install.
