Re: PBB-7003-F Questions

Anyone Weld The Right Lower Half Of A FE To A 65 430?

I have a Fenruary 1st 1965 430 and a donor Fenruary 22nd 1965 Cleveland casting 352 FE. The 430 was a running engine traded for a 460 and the 352 is freeze cracked.

My 65 F100 has a black spot of cooked paint on the underside and now rust up top from a leaking spread spread bore Motorcraft carb. Look forward to seeing your MEL run.

Re: Big Block, Small Block, What ist correct for a MEL 462!

The MEL has 2" in length, wider and taller than the big block FE. Today I dollied a 352, minus rods and pistons, including the crank and main caps. I also...

We have blocked off the two center carbs, no progressive linkage on this one, the carbs are the "new" Stromberg 97 that flow around 180 cfm from speedway.
That makes sense. Is it very streetable? If he goes this route it will be in a 1959 Ranchero with a 4 speed manual.

Re: Stroked 430 in 1939 Ford Coupe

Did you modify the carburetors linkage to progressive? I know a man with one of those intakes. His thoughts were to block off the outer 4 carbs. I have no experience on the 6x2 but I thought the fuel mixture would somewhat fall out of suspension before it reached the outer cylinders. How likely woul...
