    Just wanted to let you know that an Under Hood Storage/toolbox is liste on E-Bay.

    Don't know if you already have one but this one might be a good one. Search on

    E-Bay for "Ford Bronco UnderHood Storage Box". It was up there today with 2

    people watching it, one of them is me. Hope this helps you.

    From reading your posts, you seem very knowledgeable. I am hoping you will be willing to help me with a problem. If you don't mind, see my problem below.

    I have an '86 f150 4.9. I installed a DUI HEI distributor with the coil and all included in the unit. It is supposed to be calibrated to the 4.9 I6. I also bought a reman carter non-feedback carb. I installed the distributor only, and it ran smoother than ever, but after a few minutes the engine started knocking/clicking (spark knock??? Detonation??). I could not adjust this noise out with the timing. I got scared and put the old distributor back on (this is my daily driver). Could the electronic feedback carb be causing this knock? If not, What am I missing?


    Thanks so much for your help.

    Back in May 2012 you had a post about the choke on Autolite 2bbl and the heat stove going to the choke with a picture of the stock manifold and a custom set up for your headers. Where did you get the custom set up for the headers? That engine looks great by the way. Thanks-Jason

    No worries Lariat. I was wondering where peak torque rpm for a stock efi 302 occurs. I'm trying to build one solely for mileage. I keep seeing that a car should be geared to cruise at 80% of peak torque rpm for the most potential mpg. Am I doing better explaining? And T56 is basically an updated, strong, 6spd version of the T5 manual from a fox body mustang. Also, love the avatar. Always makes me laugh, especially when you're quashing inane ideas like a CAI.
