    Hi AB:

    I live in Boise as well. How's it going? You seem to be dialed on rear end gears and I'm struggling. My rig is a 66 F100, 300 IL 6, 4 speed manual (first is basically the granny). The stock rear end gear is 3.50 and the truck is geared way too low. It is screaming on the highway at 60 mph. Based upon other commentary on this site and looking at gearing calculators, I'm leaning toward 3.0 rear end gears. Do you have any advice on this? The truck is entirely for show....no towing and I plan on plenty of road trips in the future. Could you weigh in with your thoughts?
    Thanks much, Doug

    AB, I was reading the "Distributor recurve" thread you did a few years ago. I'm pretty getting pretty close to doing that myself and I was wandering what you finally settled on for springs and which slot you used.
    Also thanks for all the time you've put into this forum. I've learned more here than probably everywhere else combined.

    AB--hello to you. Does the Walker Y pipe have a flaired end, allowing a 2.5" pipe to slip inside it?

    Thank you very much for your quick response. You have confirmed what ive been thinking. I got the engine running the other day, runs like a dream! Its my first ever engine rebuild so i must have done something right so far. So far has loads of power in mid rpm, a little lacking in the upper. Havent pulled yet, going easy for a while. Good to meet you, your postings have been a great wealth of knowledge for me over the past year or so in my research of this engine. 1967 ford highboy, 300ci 4 speed, 4.10, 255 85 16. Engine: 9.2cr, .040 over, comp cam 260, cloyes advanced timing gear, 240ci ported head, 3 angle valve job, clifford intake, 2100 autolite, 300 HD 2.5 in single exaust manifold.

    Hello AB, I live just up the road from you in Mountain Home. I need your opinion on a cam related topic. I just rebuilt my 300 with help from an old school hot rodder. Upon inspection of my original stock cam, i noticed the spacer ring for the first time. I didnt put it in... Oops. I was very careful when pushing the cam gear on, to watch for proper clearance between the gear and the thrust plate, unaware of that being the purpose of the spacer ring, which I had no idea about. I have a very tight clearance, but the cam spins free and smooth. My question for you is, is that the only purpose of the spacer ring? If I am comfortable with my clearance, can i get by without it? Is there a chance the pressed on aluminum gear could some how "walk up the shaft" seeing that the gear is aluminum with helical cut gears that could be prone to side load? I see no other use of the spacer ring other than clearance. Its a Cloyes aluminum gear, and I really dont want to pull it off.

    Hey there..I've been wanting to ask..did you have any water/seapeage.leak problems when you had your log manifold water heated? I've been thinking of using that setup on a spare engine for my 85/camper,

    Good evening, I was looking at your pictures of your 4bbl conversion. What manifold gasket did you use?
    I have a Mr. Gasket 260, but in your pictures I see a multi gasket being used.
    Thanks
