Hi All
been a while for me! Is there anyone still out there? Hope your all well and playing safe.
Simple question I have a 1970 Torino Thunderjet 429.
Engine misses on 1 and 6. Directly opposite on the distributor and running same port on the Edelbrock Performer RPM.
Tried caps, rotors, different leads and distributor.
No vacuum leaks I can find, good compression on both, cam lifts about right with dial indicator on the rocker arms. New plugs.
770 vac sec Holley new power valve etc etc. WTF am I missing?

Hey guy's, I recently found out I have a blown head gasket Sad  the motor specs are as follows:
New Style Boss Blocked 331 Stroker. Vic JR Loc Wire Heads W/1/2" Head Studs, Vic JR Intake,
D-1SC Procharger @ 12LB Boost and about 500 miles on motor. Compression check was good.

My question is what is your opinion on using.....  Blue Devil Head Sealer to fix the problem?
I do not know if it is more critical as the motor is forced induction.
I do realize this is not the correct method to fix this problem but I would like to know what everyone thinks. thanks, James.

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?
