Re: 66 200 dies at idle when I press the gas.

This winter I did allot of upgrades on the 66 i6. Painted the block, new starter, starter cable, battery cables, plugs, plug wires, gauge wiring harness, oil pressure sending unit, oil pan, pick up tube, oil pump, fuel pump and a rebuilt Autolite 1100 carb from eBay. Points replaced years ago with ...

Are these worth keeping around or should they go to the recycle bin?



Are the rocker arm assemblies the adjustable ones?

Re: Cleaning Internals

Probably a dumb question, but what is the best way to go about cleaning the internals of a C4? I'm doing a complete rebuild of one and this is the first time I've ever done anything with a transmission. Last thing I want to do is something stupid and pit the guts because I used the wrong thing to c...

Re: Ceramic coated header question

I purchased a carb spacer just haven't put it on yet. I'll install it and just run with the powder coat. Thanks for the info.[/quote] The powdercoating process is usually baking the coated part at 400 degrees F. Your exhaust header will get much hotter than that and some of the coating will burn off...

Re: New Aluminum Head for Jeep & AMC Sixes!

I called Edelbrock about the AMC 4.0 head, and it weighs 41lbs, which is a savings of 25 lbs over the stock 66lb head. The reason that it isn't lighter is because it has a 5/8" deck cast in. So far Summit has the best price, just under $1500. It should be popular with the Jeep/offroad crowd. 8)...

Re: 240CID to C4

Thank you for you knowledge and assistance. What is the most effective way on my C4 to identify/verify the correct teeth count. Will any of the build numbers/tag on the tranny help or is there another approach? As to the tail end of the tranny, is it likely that the bracket holding my speed will wo...

Re: New Aluminum Head for Jeep & AMC Sixes!

:hmmm: Though this was interesting that Edelbrock made a new Alum. Head for the Jeep Sixes looks great! http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive/mc/cylinder-heads/jeep.shtml For Edelbrock to jump into the inline 6 alloy head market, there has got to be a big demand and $$$ in it for them. HESCO was maki...

Re: Wanted: Ford 200ci Turbo/Supercharger recipe

Hey guys/gals new to the forum and I am in search of a new project. A few years back I was at a local car show with my sons and I noticed in the back corner a early mustang with a 200ci inline six that had a blow through 1bbl turbo setup on it which has had a lasting impression on me. Does anyone h...
