Separate names with a comma.
Would that not be honing it?The factory tool swages the bushing in place, while burnishing it to the proper ID.
more detail on "runs like crap"
Idle, cruise, WOT no load, WOT under load, does it every go from running well to abruptly running poorly, or does...
Basically you are trying to push the power band up, The route I would take is to make it fatter on both ends, with 6k being the ceiling.
yikes, something ain't right for sure. Maybe the crank register was too shallow and the TC was holding it forward..
Honestly that means nothing. Unless you verify that true piston TDC is being displayed as 0° on your particular balancer/cover, you are 100%...
I would use an actual piston stop, and mark the balancer to ensure you are dead on TDC, and your balancer has not slipped.HEI, or electronic...
did you verify TDC with a piston stop?
what distributor are you using?
What method did you use for setting it at 10°?
I just use windex the same way, except you'll hear RPM drop or stall
I'm sure he wouldn't have an issue getting some out to you
not sure if he sells the springs alone, or only with the limiter plate, I picked up the plate, his tuning book, and springsHow to limit...
yes the 6 spring kit pictured
Also if you call Don on the phone, he will actually stop what he is doing, and give his suggestion on how to set up everything up based on what...
Highly suggest getting this spring kit and drop in limiter plate combo (J685S) from 4secondsflat.com[ATTACH]
what steps did you go through to seat the rings? not sharpshooting, just curious
PO built the engine for street/strip. It’s well beyond anything I would have done honestly
Would you mind expanding on that? I have hyd. roller in my 418, but I'm fairly ignorant on this topic
Yea if you don’t really get into it and hold it often, you are likely to open the secondaries and find some snotty fuel.
Have you had it backfire recently?
I would go back through and baseline the carb. Set floats, choke, idle circuit, etc.Just check YouTube, tuning videos for days
Before cranking, are you pressing the pedal to the floor to give a little shot of fuel and to let the choke close?
What do you mean after a run? The plugs will show you the status of the engine at shut down. So to read idle tune, shut off at idle and pull...
Spark plug reading can be complex and sometimes frustrating task this page will help make it easier and the results rewarding
Found it on Amazon. I wish there was a "Build a bulletproof street engine" book.....
That’s what I’m thinking, push rods too long. Yes the valves clearly contacted the pistons, but that’s not what caused the push rod damage
If the valves are truly undamaged, I can't imagine the valves alone are responsible for that much "customization" of the push rods.If that's...
@RAMM tried to send you a msg, inbox is full.Do you mind elaborating on the bearing modification, or do you have a thread where it’s discussed...
Are you referring to the converter not being fully seated, and damaging the bearing on initial startup, or an incorrect airgap?
No not too much to ask at all. There is an aerosol coating out that looks incredible.
