It only takes about 1/2 a horsepower to turn that smog pump. No real gain by deleting it and in fact, it's a loss because that pump helps you to pass smog.

About your 'cam shopping'; if it lumpy...

I would check the adjustment of the kickdown linkage first before I went any further. Follow the Haynes manual or Ford Factory manual on this.

Second, did trans fluid come out of the vacuum hose...

Stinking thieves!

Car thieves need to burn in their own special corner of hell. Best if it's trapped under the cars they stole. I have no compassion for thieves.

I had a very tricked out '58 F-250 that I started...

Some info

I just checked at NapaOnline and they show different starters for my 1997 7.5L

The nose depth of manual and automatic starters were always different in the older SBF offerings.

Just my $0.02 USD worth

If any of this transaction occurred across state lines, I'm sure the California DMV and some other state/federal entities would get involved in helping rectify this issue.

If it were me, I would...

It's not just a visual inspection, it's actual "sniffing the tailpipe" on a road simulator dyno that we have to pass. The bad part is most of our mechanics have no clue what they're looking at. A...

Yeah, right!

After some searching, it would seem your truck is still subject to a bi-annual
tailpipe sniffer test (VEIP), since it seems like you live in Washington county. Just so you know, that little Holley...

o_0?

I thought we answered your questions in your last thread on your whole carb conversion deal.

Just jump in, get a carb and Duraspark distributor in place. If it runs, I'm sure there are folks here...

It does have that sound of a dead hole - either bad injector, burned valve or holed piston. It's not likely but don't rule out a bad fuel distributor. In essence, one hole ain't hitting worth...

The current pricing on the 'Net seems to be around $1,800 or so plus shipping. that Banks system uses 3" mandrel bent tubing which is more than sufficient for a 460.

Keep in mind that it's a...

Unless you're converting to points ignition, you'll need something to control the distributor. Not sure if this is an oversight on your part but y'all need something, a stand-alone controller to make...

Well, your starter ring gear is on the flexplate. If you can still start your truck, the issue most likely lies inside the transmission or the torque converter, not the flexplate.

Yikes! Another Hot Air Intake!

I hate to tell ya, that K&N 'cold air filter' just made your wallet lighter and lowered your performance in hot weather. Take it off, put the stock box back in so you can pull in cold air from behind...
