    5.8 motors use a 28oz imbalance weight while the 5.0 uses a 50oz so that is the source of your vibration.

    have a question for ya. . i saw a post u commented on about a person doing a motor swap from a 5.0 to a 5.8 as i recently just did. You had went into a little depth about the flywheel weights. when i did my motor swap the truck was a 5.0 manual transmission (m5od). the motor i installed was from a 95 e250 van 5.8 automatic.i used the same harmonic balancer that was on the 5.8 liter but i used the same flywheel from the 5.0 as it was a manual flywheel. i have a vibration in the truck it feels more like a lump than a constant vibration. in your response u mentioned weights on the flywheels. are the weights the same for each size motor? meaning does a 5.0 always have this certain weight in oz's and does the 5.8 always have this certain weight in oz's. i was nieve about the internal and external balancing principles. now im certain that the weights are lined up as the balancer has a key hole and the flywheel i lined up with the mark on the back of the crank.

    Want to pick your brain if u gave a sec. Im doing a 5.0 to 5.8 swap in 1995 4x4. I'm using the 5.0 upper with an adapter, gt40 3 bar heads,4.10 gears and 35 tires, longtubes, e40d. What cam do you recommend for my buildup and would roller rockers be worth the money? I gave searched and see a few recommendations but none for my combo. Thanks

    It has the base roller cam in it so there is lots of room for improvement. The Comp 35-512-8 is essentially a high lift version of the '94+ truck cam, add longtube headers and you want 3.73 to 4.10 gears in the rear axle with nothing bigger than 31" tires.

    Conaski I have been reading post on this site for quite some time, and I feel you are most undoubtedly the best info guy on this site for 80s-90s f-150. So with that said I posted a cam question yesterday I have a 9/93 mfg date f-150 5.0 Do you happen to know what cam it has and what I should do to get more power out of it I plan on towing a 6,000lb toy hauler on occasion Thanx RA-150

    do you by chance know if the exciter ring in the rear end for the speedometer is removable or not? im gathering my list of things to get and it dawned on me the speedo is electronic and i know nothing about the exciter ring set up. ive looked some up on ebay n they look weld in but a post on here said they were bolt in on the back of the carrier. any info on it?

    If it's a 5.0 motor go with 4.10s, the trans OD ratio is really deep so it'll still get decent highway milage. I don't know about those headers, maybe ask the question in the regular forum.

    sorry to bug you but i need to pick your brain again. how big of a difference would there be between 3.73 and 4.10 gears with an aode/w trans and 31' tires? it will be on the highway a bit free of a trailer and in town quite a bit? and do you know of anyone running hedman #89350 street headers? they seem to be decent headers and look like fitment would be ok but ya never know till you put them in the truck. thanks again for any info you have cz ive looked everywhere and cant find factory 4.10s and im not sure if id have to upgrade the dana 44 carrier let alone what series it is
