You can buy good code reader for about that same $200 your mechanic wants to charge you to use his. Never heard of someone cutting the cats open to inspect them.

Can't beat Felpro's #9333 expanded graphite gasket sprayed with Kopper Cote. I ran these 11 years on my Canfield headed 331, just had a leak develop on one side this past winter, I replaced them both...

Yea, I've never had a failure with a Cloyes set. The only time I ever had problems was with a Ford Racing HP set, that one ate into the cam retainer plate, didn't find that out til the block cracked...

I've run that same timing set on a few 302's and a 351, plus my 11 year old 331 that's got a Ford Z303 roller cam and healthy roller springs on the Canfield heads. If any of them did stretch, you...

X two on this. Unless you ran across a motor that someone (like me}>}>) who did a GT40 head swap on it.

Easiest way I've found to Id a cam is to measure the lobe lifts and then compare it to others listed in the books. Sometimes you get lucky. That's not much stretch there. I've seen far worse that...

It's on top of the TB, it's pretty easy to spot, it adjusts the top lever on the TB where the cable attaches.

The main difference in the way the covers bolt to the block was the addition of cover locating dowels, this was begun about in 1979-80. With the earlier covers, you needed to leave the bolts loose as...

The first reverse water pump appeared in 79, with the Fox Body Stangs, long before EFI got started. This was mounted on a std rotation timing cover. In 86, Ford made yet another revision to the...

I'd look at the oil in the crankcase before doing anything or spending anything on it. Also check your coolant level and remove the #1 and #2 plugs and then crank it over with the distributor wire...

The sensor has some "slop" in the screw holes mounting it to the throttle body if I recall. You might try pulling the TB again and loosening it and turning the sensor the opposite way. There's also...

It being a reman crate engine, there's no telling what cam is in there. It's a safe bet it's not the right cam for a 95 EFI system. I'd do as Conanski said and swap it out. The stock roller cam for a...

Depends on what year's you're talking about. The accessory bolt holes changed at some point in the 60's. Everything on the blocks stayed the same with the exception of the boss in the lower front...

Not sure why you did an HO cam swap. You gained very little there. The stock cam in that motor is just a shade less cam on the intake side compared to the HO cam. 10 0r 20 degrees and .030 lift is...

Next time remember that antiseize is your best friend when screwing steel or iron fittings into aluminum. And those valve cover bolts ? Wrist tight using a 1/4" drive ratchet and socket is all that's...
