Re: EBay forged pistons

Sandboxer: I am curious as to exactly what your plans are for sectioning the LS head. I assume U R going to make the head a 3-piece TIG stitched cross flow by using a total of (2) production heads? Cutting one down the middle and using both of these 2-chamber end pieces then cutting a center 2-chamb...

Re: Sandwich head. Or two piece head.

Just read all the threads above and felt compelled to chime in with regard to Moldex Tool aka Dearborn Crankshaft and Bob Gillelan who I met while on a NASCAR crankshaft assignment in 1968 and developed a long standing personal relationship with. Bob was that consummate thinker and tinkerer but he u...

Re: Cam Selection for Weber DCOE carbs

Re: Maximum CFM flow potential for 240-300 production heads

My Two Cents >> Thank you all for your follow-up posts in regard to the CFM potential of the “U-Port” head and the suggestions regarding multiple carburetion on a plenum vis-à-vis independent runner Weber carburetors. FTF asked a question as to how our (3) 2-bbl plenum worked when we gave it a try. ...

Maximum CFM flow potential for 240-300 production heads

First I want to thank all of u for your kind words about me being somewhat the “lone Ranger” of Ford 240/300 Six cylinder development which began (for me) in 1968. From what I read here I must say there is a collection of knowledge that would make the late great Dyno Don Nicholson take notice. Let’s...

Re: Off Index Lobe Grinding

A Question for all your camshaft aficionados. I need to know the current choices one has for roller lifters and links. Also has anyone successfully tried the HP Ford hydraulic lifters as a good middle of the road compromise. Bruce needs to know for current Prep H project.

Re: do they have high performance water pump

Re: Off Index Lobe Grinding

My 2-cents Back in my early Ford days we had a ‘rash’ of camshaft failures throughout the entire performance spectrum of engines as did our GM counterparts. Turned out to be in the casting process at one of the largest raw casting sources in Jackson Michigan which I believe may have been Melling Too...

Re: 240/300 balancer rebuilders

Here is what I remember. On the Preparation H Maverick I never ran anything but a stock Harmonic Balancer with 2 or 3 sheaves. Although like most everything else I did to prevent flying debris I went to the engineering people who designed balancers for a living and queried them on which production b...

FTF: A word of caution re the flat tappet crane cam you probably will use. I had several of these made up for my former ride Preparation H as did other competitors e.g. John Russell (Mad Maverick) that had a different lobe taper. Some of these "back in the day" Crane & GK 300 lump stic...
