Install finally completed!

Post #1 by Gene Fiore » Sat Sep 01, 2018 1:15 pm

I've finally got the aluminum head install completed! :D Looks and runs great. I haven't driven it very hard yet because I need to install a torque strap yet on the drivers side since there is only 1/2 inch clearance between the intake and the shock tower. :wink: I'm trying to install pics but something not working right.

Nice man!

Here's the torque stay.

A pice of steel then replaces it once you've gotten the design right. There is about 3 to 4 degrees of engine rotation under soft engine mount transmission, you set a buffer zone to half the amount to about 1.5 to 2 degrees.




No pictures on the net of the 1971-1977 European Granada Mark I 3.0 V6 right hand side upper firewall dampener.


Replicating the "I see says the blind man" item requires you to use you spring tower brace and hook it to the 2V inlet manifolds bolts on the last intake tract. Make a stern, hard braket to link the engine to the passenger side brace.

Torque stay.

A good idea...

Some 3.8's before the balance shaft got introduced, have an additional drivers side 1.5" diameter shock absorber, it mounts to the power steering bracket, and then to the K member on yet another bracket. .

the only Capris and Mustangs with this are normally 83 and 84 3.8 convertables.

Jason (rcoupe93) commented he had never seen one before so I started looking at other pictures to see if it stock or not.

Every build thread I've looked at doesn't show this bracket. For reference, here is Croke's 84 RS Turbo:

Any idea what this is?

The car is an 84 Capri RS Turbo.

Gene, any updates?

How is it running? What plugs did you use? Was it too rich with the 500 Holley or perfect?

Xctasy: Thanks for posting the pictures of the torque strap.

Hi Gene,

Looks fantastic!

Do I see an external voltage regulator?

Was your DUI set up by WSA111? I had one direct from Performance Distributors, but I didn’t have much luck with it (module failure).

You have an electric fuel pump with a regulator? Mechanical pump wouldn’t be able to keep up?

Looks like, from a fitment point of view, you could easily mount a 4 BBL carb, is that right?

Did I see a power brake booster? Do you have enough vacuum for that with the 278 solid lifter cam?

Thanks
Bob

Thanks Bob!
I am running the factory voltage regulator.

My DUI was not setup by WSA111 but I guess I lucked out because it runs great right out of the box. Did you have the module checked? I have had a few issues over the years where occasionally the engine won't start and there is no spark. I had the module checked the first time this happened and it was fine...but when I re-installed the module with a good amount of dilectric grease under it the engine fired right up! Since that first time I think this has happened once or twice and each time I would just remove the module, clean off any old dilectric grease and re-apply the dilectric grease and it would fire up every time. Hasn't happened in over a year or so.

Yes, I do have an electric fuel pump and regulator. I was only getting about 3 to 4 lbs of fuel pressure with the stock fuel pump and since I used to drag race a lot I was advised to switch to electric for better performance. It's kind of overkill for the street though.

I'm not sure if I could get a 4 bbl carb on there or not. I have no hood clearance as it stands and I don't even have the base installed to that tiny air cleaner because I couldn't close the hood with it. The air filter itself is actually resting directly on the carb flange. But as long as a 4bbl carb doesn't sit any higher than my 2bbl I probably could squeeze it in there!

I do not have a power brake booster. But I do have 15 inches of vacuum idling in park with that 278 cam. :wink:
