    Ted, Thanks for the HP information. I may have to take you up on a head as I am not having any luck finding one out this way.
    I'll keep looking for a while longer as the shipping will run $80-100.

    Are we talking a 240 68cc, 300 76cc, or 300 EFI 69cc head?

    I believe the 240 was rated at 150hp in 69. I think the same engine was rated at 121hp in 72 due to a change in how they were tested( gross vs. net hp ) .

    I have heads but I would have to disassemble one and then have it hot tanked & mag'd. If it checked out the price would be $275.00 + whatever shipping/freight would cost ( not cheap ) .

    Two questions I would like to ask you if I can?
    1. What was the rated HP of a 240 motor, one barrel carb on F100 pickup in 1969?
    2. Do you have any 240 or 300 bare heads that you would sell?
    Thanks, Tom Welch

    Thanks Ted, I will see if I can find a set of stock units so I can try my hand at porting them like you did. They look real nice. Tom

    Ted, Hello & Happy New Year.

    On my mild 300 street motor I am working on I was going to run a HD Exhaust Manifold but at $275 it is out of my range so as a second plan I am leaning towards a pair of dual EFI exhaust. Wanted to ask if you might have a used pair for sale that will bolt onto my 1992 EFI head? Thanks Tom

    Sent a picture of the rebuild Remy alternator and the fan. Brackets have worked out fine. Had to add a couple of spacers to the alternator tension rod so it moved out a little to have clearance for the radiator hose at the water pump. Looks like it will work out fine. Thanks Tom

    Ted, I got most of the parts painted, industrial gray for the motor & head, black for add on parts. The top bracket for the alternator bolts in fine and should clear the 600 HD exhaust manifold. All the fan/water pump pulley parts look good. I ordered an alternator for a 65 240 from Rock Auto, it is a 42 amp unit that should be fine for now as I have no idea what it will go in and I will have it on a run stand for awhile. Rebuilt Remy for $37.

    I have tried to send 4 pictures for you to open and look at. In the pictures of the fan I am not sure I have the fan in the right direction? It is mounted with the blade pointed end towards the motor. Is that correct or should they face the radiator?

    Thanks Tom

    I'm glad to hear you are ok. That is a scary situation out there. Things like that really put things in perspective. Everyone out there affected by the fire will be in my thoughts.

    Ted, Thanks for the information on the parts. Glad everything is on track. I am sure you have seen that we have a big wind driven wild fire here in Ventura County, we are fine, the fire is about 5 miles from are place but it is affecting all delivery in our area. This is a bad one with over 150 homes and ranches burned so far. Winds are 35-55 and fire is totally out of control. Looking forward to getting the parts, will PM you when they arrive. Tom

    Happy Thanksgiving to all. After I sent PM to you last night I was thinking that I needed to ask you if you have the brackets to mount the alternator to the block & the bracket Pc to tighten the belts. I do not know if the 240/300 block mounting holes are in the same place on my 1992 300 block. When I got this motor it had none of the add on Pc.
    If you do have them please get me a price and figure them in the package shipping price. Thanks Tom
