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?

Hey all,
I have a Ford Racing 347 (2004 vintage with Z heads) with a ITB intake set up.

I noticed a rough idle, changed the plugs, followed by a compression test which showed zero in numbers 2 and 3 cylinders and readings pretty much all over the place across the board.
I pulled the heads and discovered what I suspected - a blown head gasket between 2 and 3.
Further inspection revealed the following:
Head 1 - Damage between 2 and 3 chambers. 
Intake manifold - Pitting from water/coolant leaks at each end on both banks.
Bores - Pitting from water/coolant sitting in a couple of cylinders. Fingernail sized.

So my questions are:
Will a Hone remove the pitting alone?
Given the 347 is already 30 thou over is this block junk if it needs boring/honing?
Will a machinist be able to surface the heads and intake to match correctly again?

Thanks heaps in advance.
Steve

I can't answer your question but sadly this sight seems to have been pretty much abandoned. You might do better here. https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=fordstrokers&epa=SEARCH_BOX .Same people just on facebook

I am new to stroker motors but have built raced successfully many ford engines.

I understand the 6.200 rods are mostly all a Chevrolet design. Can someone help me understand what a "correct offset rod" and which diminsions are being referenced??g

Will the FelPro 1133 MLS head gasket work on a stock 5.0 out of a 86 Mustang with Stock heads. Some places say yes, other no.

Hi guys,

I run a vacupan system, whereby both VC and that rear PCV port is plumbed into a catch can and then out to the exhaust. I have removed the PCV check valve, and just have an open T-fitting pushed into that rubber grommet. Both VC are baffled, but one (RHS) is at the rear of the VC.

I think the vacupan is sucking a heap of oil. I used a qt in one race meet.


What I think is happening is, under hard acceleration while racing, oil is being pushed at the rear of the lifter valley, and being sucked up through the now permanently open PCV port. I didn't have one of those little  mesh filters that go in there, but have now, but haven't tested it yet.

Is my theory right? Can a lot of oil be pushed back there under hard acceleration? I have the TFS Box-R and I know they have a baffle there, but it may not be enough.

Any thoughts?
