Short Block: Comp Cam Custom Spec solid roller cam or equivalent Based on the High Torque. Then play with the timing according to what the ground strap and et slip tells you. If you build a motor to the ragged edge of pump gas, and it detonates, you lose horsepower and you will harm the motor. Sorry if this goes long. Thank you I thank you need to go back to proven builds or engine builds and post up a new topic. If you're using an advance timing light make sure you read the directions on how to set it! You should gain about 25 ftlb and 15hp by getting rid of that retard and setting the cam up the way they were meant to be, 1968-71 style.
I was told by a racing engine builder to advance it until it pings and back it off 2 degrees at a time until it doesn't ping. Don't worry about pulling the wiring loose just pull…. Horsepower peak at 4,500 rpm. Generally the engine runs fine, except that emissions have always been a problem. Then advance the timing with an eye on the vacuum gauge. It is designed to give the best overall performance for a given hp range. If you're kneeling in front of the engine it'll be next to your left kneecap! Bottom line of all of this rambling.
Firing order is 15426378, looking at engine 1 is at 1 o'clock position, and order goes counter clockwise. Keep redline to 7500 rpm. This wasn't really a problem because of the engine size and vehice purpose, so I ignored it as long as the thing kept passing inspections. This isn't going to be a race engine just a mild hop up. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa. Since electric motors generate a lot of heat when they run, and excessive heat drains batteries, you would want to use the motor that won't get over-heated because it's pulling a load too heavy for it.
Loosen the hold down bolt on the distributor just enough where you can turn the distributor. The stock crank, 2-bolt mains, and factory bolts are good to the 675-700 horsepower build which after the block should be 4-bolted. Remove the pencil or screwdriver and inseret your finger tip… if it is the same as my 1990 there is a timing window on the top of the bell housing on the drivers end of the engine. Retard the timing turn the distributor in the direction that slows the engine down a little. I am experiencing the same issue with my 460 in my 1990 F350 4x4.
Keep redline to 6500 rpm. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. I will also confirm that plug wiring is correct, just to be safe. However - the engine still misses once in a while. The builds outlined will get you the horsepower listed, but they are not the only way. Ford V8 429, 460, 514 Firing Order Cylinder Numbering Distributor Rotation Rotor Under Cap Spins: Counter Clockwise Torque Specs These specs may not be correct for your application. Most of the aftermarket cams come about 4 degrees advanced as they know most engines run better that way.
. At the same time, I also used restrictor plates on the Flying Toilets a whole different topic but have seen no adverse effects. I also have the fuel flow and fuel level transmitters for it. One blown resistor could keep the blower from blowing at all. If you are looking to over-bore a 460 then it can easily handle a 0.
Could this simply be distributor alignment? I have dabbled in engine work on and off, but am by no means an expert. Another issue is the location of the timing pointer. If you don't get it timed with enough advance it will not make full rpm. Is the spout connector a wire that runs from one of the terminals on the coil. So I get a set of original Ford service manuals by luck and begin reading. The books I have conflict as to which cylinder is 1, but whichever one I use for the timing reference, 1 or 5, the timing is either 30 deg retarded or 40 degrees advanced. Your cylinders 1-4 passenger side,5-8 drivers side.
This is the kind of information I am looking for when I start my Boss 9 build thiss fall. Oil Pump Engine Oil 25 ft-lbs. How do the plugs look as far as the heat mark on the ground strap? Would you guys happen to have a picture or schematic of the front of the balancer with the timing marks? And proper timing is set with it disconnected? It seems to lack power compared to what a 460 should have. I had a mechanic friend of a friend do a tune up about 2 years ago, at which time he told me he rebuilt the carb. This is the reason I avoid using Sealed-Power pistons, or any piston for that matter, that has a short compression height which leaves the piston sometimes as much as. It has a C9 Axle code so if I read right it's 3.
If I put the truck in gear, the miss goes away almost completely. Then remove the old ones and install the new ones. Keep redline to 6000 rpm. This is the kind of information I am looking for when I start my Boss 9 build thiss fall. Flexplate Automatic Flywheel Clutch Thread Locker 85 ft-lbs. I too feel it runs poorly in relation to my expectations.
Used a advancing timing light to set the timing. There is a problem with the Thermactor valve. You are striving for no back pressure. Since my friend's friend had moved on to another place, I decided to try to tackle it alone. It is always open allowing air to be pumped into the exhaust manifold at all times.
