Can anyone see any issues that need attention before I button everything up? I know it's probably not ideal but very little I do is, I'm more concerned with will it work and safety issues right now.

Sorry but I typed incorrectly.  The correct way is to check the float levels with the engine NOT running.   Wink

Hello. Yesterday I started my car after sitting about 6 month. It started up fine and I took a ride around the block. Suddenly I heard a ticking sound and I pulled the valvecovers. It was a valvespring that have broken in two places.
Is this a common problem springs that break?
I have CompCams 999-16

Can I get one spring and change it or do I have to buy 16 new?

FYI -- On Quick Fuel Technology carbs:  The fuel bowl floats HAVE to be set at halfway up the sight glass levels with the engine IDLING otherwise the carb's transfer slot circuits will not get enough fuel to offer the best in performance.

If your cam makes the engine shake too much at idle to see where in the heck the fuel level in the bowl is then give it just enough gas to steady the rockin' engine.

Talking about off idle acceleration.

I finally got my Innovate MTX-L wideband installed!  It was so easy, I should have done it sooner.  I opted to temporarily put it in the radio delete insert since the existing wiring there had everything I needed.

Turned off driver¬ís side HEGO.  WB IS also tied into pin 27 (EVP) so I can data log Lambda through my QuarterHorse.

Iím still chipping away at this thing.  Tried to go for a short cruise and didnít make it far.



Popped like a balloon.  Luckily at very low speed.  I may have slightly over inflated those, but Iím still surprised.  Old tires were Kumho Power Star 758, 118mph speed rating

Found some good radial skinnies made in Holland.  Vredestein Sprint Classic 165HR15, 130mph speed rating, and 51psi max.  It was either those or MT Sportsman S/R, which are $70 more per tire and have a max psi of 35.

Plus, the 72cc combustion chamber is going to put the compression in the toilet unless you're running boost or have a dome piston with a 302.  Could you be confusing the size of the combustion chamber being too big rather than the intake port being too big?

You either have a set of early 205 or 225 AFR heads with a 2.05 valve, or you have a set of early AFR 185 heads with a 2.02 intake valve.  Or... the 185 heads were ported and set up with a larger intake valve.

A set of 205-225 AFR heads with the 2.05" intake valve could be considered too big for a mildly warmed up 302.  The larger 2.05" intake valve could be considered too large for the stock valve spacing AFR head in a small bore (4"-4.060") rather than a large 4.125" bore.

I'm suspicious you may not have a set of 185 heads.

I have TRW flat tops with a set of World Windsor SR heads. I was wondering how  likely I am to run into piston to valve issues. After the fuel system stuff I bought if I get this cam, springs and timing set they will just about finish off the money I have for the car this year so I don't want to get in too much deeper. Also I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this cam and how it will work for a carbed street car running a t5 and 4.11 gears.
