Bought an old 55 F100 and got it running, best i can tell
its a 89 Lincoln lopo 5.0, roller cam w/standard 302 pattern, e6 heads, guessing it has cast dished pistions from what ive read. Weiand xcelerator,  600 holley, shorty headers, 2.5" exh, T5, 3.27 gear

Ive bought custom cams before from Jay and buddy rawls,  this ride will not get that treatment.

Just wondering if anyone has cammed a lopo long block like this?
Can it be cammed without ptv issues?
All i want from this engine is a good hitting lope, i know it will loose power and i dont have a problem with that. YEP, Want a cam for sound only which is a no-no i get it.

From my research it looks like the e6 head has the valves way up in the chamber with more free drop than an e7, and there shouldn't be any valve reliefs in the lopo dish pistons.

I will verify ptv clearance before engine runs, what im really asking is, what is your thoughts on what cam might fit with a good lope without fly cutting

Didn't know where else to put this so here goes....

I installed a clutch pedal assembly into an automatic mustang and after I put the steering column back in, the bolt holes don't line up on the shaft and column in the engine bay.

Did something get moved or did I reinstall the column wrong?

It needs to move 1/2" for the holes to line up.

Is it a collapsible column, where I need to move the column side of the assembly out or what?

1991 Ranger 3.0 5spd, occasional stumble, CEL flickers when it happens. Actually died tonight on the way home. Replaced EEC power relay, ignition switch and swapped to a different ECU, did it again once on they way home from the shop.

It's got me confused

Found what I was looking for....found I can use a wire that goes to the tfi module since the po cut off the coil wires.

I installed an HEI distributor in my 88 mustang, carbureted 5.0, and was wondering if the stock ignition coil negative wire would work if hooked up to the tachometer connection on the distributor.
Need the stock tachometer to work.
Didn't find anything in my search, so please don't flame me.

Gonna depend on your valve covers.    I have tall trickflows.  With a Wilson elbow everything clears but no chance of using a stock hood.   I saw some edelbrock elbows that were shorter but you would need to be past the valve cover on my set up for throttle linkage to work

I need to upgrade my Edlebrock RPM !! intake which is 11.13" high. The key here is to keep the stock hood. The Victor EFI comes in at 11.4" and the Super Victor EFI can be pieced together to get really close to 11.13 however the parts selection is critical because the only elbow I see that has a chance of working is a 3847 and I'm concerned that will bury the throttle linkage into the valve cover. Has anyone pieced together a Victor EFI (p/n 2928) that fits under a stock hood or is there another brand of intake out there that will work. Just FYI the ports on the 205 11R's are 2.250x1.4.

popped a head gasket on the dyno on #3, it's a turbo setup 18# of boost. I want to increase to torque on the ARP studs by 10# to get more clamping force and I will be using ARP lube on treads. It' a stock 5.0 block with GT40P heads that is going to have felpro 9333 gaskets. Question is...good idea? bad idea?
