  1. Out of ideas

    All Ford Techboard
    Have a used stock roller cam 302 in a Granada. RPM air gap and a 4160 Holly, Hei ignition and Headers. This thing leans out about 2200 Rpm and starts popping. I have replaced the Intake gasket Removed and Plugged the vacuum hoses. Tried different carbs and all with the same results. Used...

    You need to line up the oil pump drive. Some times you need to bump the starter and it will fall into place.

  5. Max advance for 302

    Barnet468 I would like you to reread the post. I appreciate the help but, we are not communicating correctly. After plugging all vacuum lines, I retarded the timing to start the procedure you described. I was trying to keep it running and set idle and a base timing around 6-8* The timing...
  6. Max advance for 302

    All Ford Techboard
    Retarded the timing to try what Barrnett468 suggested. At one point I blipped the throttle and watched the timing retard about 5* then started advancing. no vacuum is hooked up. Is this normal for a Hei distributor?

    OK, double checked the carb. Fuel level is right at the bottom of the plug when removed. Electric pump with a regulator set at 5 psi. Best vacuum 1 5/8 turn out. Not sure how to make any adjustment to vacuum secondary circuit. Accelerator pump set per Holly's instructions. Backed of vacuum...
  8. Max advance for 302

    I like the idea of reducing vacuum advance. It will put me in more of a comfort zone. The fact that I currently have more vacuum than mechanical advance had me a little rattled. I'll let you know the next round of results.
  9. Max advance for 302

    All Ford Techboard
    David I am not sure I fully understand what you are telling me. When I first started out, I was using manifold vacuum. I am getting 18* of vacuum advance with it. Are you saying run that with the 16* initial and set idle ?

    Bought a slightly used stock roller cam 302 motor to drop into an 80 Granada. It came with HEI ignition and an RPM air gap manifold. Had to buy a timing cover, headers and used a 600 cfm Holly 4160 cab I had. Found TDC and made a pointer and marked a pully. Now I had a stumble off idle that I...
  11. School me on the Ford ignition system

    All Ford Techboard
    Thank you. Exactly what I needed to see. This leads to one more question. After removing the module. The white wire can be capped off. The red wire should still have 12v. Would this be a good source for the electric choke and fuel pump, and what will it do to the charge indicator light?
  12. School me on the Ford ignition system

    All Ford Techboard
    The HEI is not what I am asking about. The factory Ford ICM has 9 wires. I am wanting to remove this to clean up the engine bay. Before I do, I want to know Exactly what I am removing Before I create even bigger problems. I am sure at least 1 of these wires will supply my 12v. to the HEI...

    Nice car. I am building an 80 2 door right now. I may have some questions for you down the road.
  15. School me on the Ford ignition system

    All Ford Techboard
    Bought an 80 Granada for a little hot rod project. Pulled the 255 this weekend to replace with a low mileage roller cam 302. The engine is in place but It came carbed with a billet HEI one wire distributor. Now I understand that Ford used a separate start and run wire to the coil. My confusion...

  17. 9 Inch Gear Timing

    All Ford Techboard
    Thanks for the explanation.You learn something new everyday. I set up a lot of gears in an off road shop. They are all aftermarket and none in the ratios your chart shows as an idexed set.
  18. 9 Inch Gear Timing

    All Ford Techboard
    OK, after reading this I think I understand your question.To think number 2 tooth of the pinion will only touch 2 12 22 and 32 of the ring gear is wrong. Every tooth will eventually touch every tooth of the other gear. There are no timing marks like crank and cam gears. If you have never done...
  19. 9 Inch Gear Timing

    All Ford Techboard
    Gear marking compound is used to check the pattern after assembly. The pattern will let you know if adjustments need to be made. The compound will be gone shortly after break in so looking at older gears you will not see it. exactly what are you wanting to know?
