    Hey man when you cut your frame 16 inches does it matter how far off the last bed mount hole that you cut it . I'm about to do mine I'm just worried about how to do it all yours looked pretty simple just trying to see if it matters how far off the holes you cut it

    Hi, it's actually not very difficult. I cut 16" between the cab and rear end, then 4" off the very back end of the frame. Good luck!

    I have 22-2500 RPM stall converter. I don't have SCJ heads, mine are just Ford D3's. The idle is good, there is a little bit of a lope to it, especially when the engine is cold.

    good evening
    what rpm stall convertor did you use with your 262 cam and Super cobra jet heads?
    also what is the idle like with the cam ? Does it have a lope?
    Thank you

    Thanks for the compliment on my truck. My truck is actually green! I admit, under different types of lighting, it looks blue. The colour is called "Cayman Pearl Metallic" or something like that. It was a very common colour used on Ford vehicles in the early 90's. If you type in "Cayman Pearl" or Cayman Green" into a Google images search, you'll get lots of pictures of the colour on Ford vehicles. Hope this helps.

    Sorry about the really late reply!!! I never noticed that I had a message waiting for me. I really like the cam, lots of power/ torque. I recommend using the Comp valve springs that match the cam. My 460 wouldn't rev past 5000 RPM with the stock springs. I used a set of coated Sanderson street rod headers. I made my own motor mounts, so my no other headers would fit. The Sanderson's are 'shorty' headers. I hope this helps. If you need anything else just ask here, I'll try to check in more often. Or try my home e-mail (

    I see that you have the mercury version of my 68 f100 ranger which is awesome. I also see that you are running the same engine, stall, transmission, and cam as me. I was wondering what you think about the XE262H and also what headers you used. I would appreciate it thanks
