    Fan clutch replacement guidance and recommendations

    Drain the coolant through a coffee filter and see if any casting sand comes out with it.

    Fan clutch replacement guidance and recommendations

    Would that indicate blockage if it collapsed? If so, lift up the rear axle and put it on jackstands after a long drive to get it where you think is over temp. Maybe even take the tires off. Have someone look at the hose as you maintain 60 mph. Don’t do it too long as you won’t have any air...

    Fan clutch replacement guidance and recommendations

    Did you have the block sonic checked before boring? Anything you can think of that would cause excessive friction in your engine? Does it perform the way you think it should? Hard to diagnose this without physically being there to witness it happening. Anyway it does sound like your fan clutch...

    Fan clutch replacement guidance and recommendations

    That’s the idea of a fan clutch. To stop spinning at mid to high rpm’s or when you get into it, I believe. Air moving through your radiator at highway speeds should cool your coolant without a fan.

    Fan clutch replacement guidance and recommendations

    Are you sure you have the right radiator for that car? If you have the right radiator, has your engine been modified to produce more power that the radiator can handle? It sounds like the radiator is not getting enough air through it to me. Did you modify the grill?

    Fan clutch replacement guidance and recommendations

    Not real well versed in fan clutches, but if your heat problem is at highway speeds probably not the clutch. At those speeds and rpm it should disengage.

    Speedometer jumping around help

    Its been a while since I have done this, but you need to remove your cable to grease or replace, either way. What I can’t remember is if the cable itself can be pulled through the casing once it is removed due to the squared off ends. If it does come through, don’t pull it all the way out. Pull...

    Speedometer jumping around help

    Try greasing the cable. Friction is grabbing it and the end/ends that are squared off that drive the cable/speedometer are skipping in their prospective sockets. If that don’t work new cable and drive sockets, as in new Speedo and gear.

    Owner hoping for 50k?

    Brazilian detailing company. And I have heard that they pay stupid prices for cars in Mexico and South America.

    How much would you pay for this 340?

    Hard to say, I know I like $500 as a price. I’d go there with tools, make sure it turns over a dozen times, pull the valve cover and take a good look with a flashlight. Maybe even pull the oil pan. Lots can happen after 6 years.

    Enlarging PRP doesn't always help

    Enlarging PRP doesn't always help

    From what I understand, flow gains doesn’t trump port energy and efficiency. I believe that comes from trying to equalize port speeds throughout all areas of the port and trying to keep speeds around 300 for stockish size ports (with in reason for porting with available meat to port).

    One of the first 340?

    If it is an early 340 block AND it was a 4 speed car, it may have a rare wilder cam than the 68 4 speed cam.

    Napa Gold now made in china

    Not so, a lot of companies have left China for Mexico. Masterlock has. Abbvie also pulled their diagnostic labs as well. There are more. The Chinese are thieves and the word is out. They reverse engineer product and counterfeit for profit. If it is intellectual property, you are screwed. You...
