  1. Stock 351W Distributor

    All Ford Techboard
    the 94 351w should be a roller cam isn't it? If so you need the distributor with the matching gear (bronze?) or you'll ruin the cam or the dizzy
  2. Junkyard Dog, po'boy stroker build and questions.

    All Ford Techboard
    I did the "piece by piece" stroker off the scratch and dent table and then they started offering a whole kit - take my advice and get the whole kit for your block (crank, rods, pistons) then you can build it the way you want and don't have to worry as much about making things match. I'd put...
  3. Carb swap

    All Ford Techboard
    You should be able to eliminate everything except for a vac line to the power brake booster and the distributor. Large (~3/8" line from port in manifold below back of carb typically goes to power brakes, 1/8" line goes from ported vacuum nipple on carb to distributor vac advance canister).
  4. Is there an internal design difference between and Edelbrock Carb and a Carter

    All Ford Techboard
    I've swapped jets, rods & springs between the two with no issue. I've heard that the AFS Thunder series ? is a totally new design. I believe it's a matter of today's fuel composition (ethanol) that causes the boiling rather than the build of the carb.
  5. 79 Bronco won't start

    All Ford Techboard
    Make sure your battery cable goes to ground (on the motor) and the other end goes to the solenoid and from the solenoid to the starter! The plow pump gets power straight from the battery - I suspect you've got power going to the plow and from there to the solenoid, disconnecting the plow left...
  6. checking key FOB transmitters?

    All Ford Techboard
    Anyone know of a way to check if my keyfob is working correctly? I think my tailgate button is sticking and giving me phantom trunk action. I figure I'll go to Advance/Azone/Orellys and use that little transmitter tester they keep on the front counter by the Energizer display to see if it's...
  7. HELP 2007 Expedition power liftgate randomly opens itself!!

    All Ford Techboard
    hadn't considered that - WD40 to the rescue! We'll see what that does.
  8. HELP 2007 Expedition power liftgate randomly opens itself!!

    All Ford Techboard
    Ok, Just bought the wife an Expedition EL on Monday and now we're having liftgate problems - it's an 07 with 111k on it so it's out of warranty The problem: the liftgate randomly opens itself - when in park with the doors unlocked it will open - I came out of the store and the gate was up. I...
  9. 351w help

    All Ford Techboard
    Jedi - the choke spring should just barely close the choke butterfly (& pull up the fast idle cam) with the thermostat cold when you floor the carb prior to cold startup. What jetting are you running? Which springs? Which rods? I ran that same setup in my Bronco and loved it. I can go pull the...
  10. 351W rebuild manual?

    All Ford Techboard
    Yeah I was hoping it'd break free and I'd be able to start it up - guess it's coming out and getting torn down. Should've asked Santa for a 4.030" ball hone! I'll have to find a copy of Tom Monroe's book, I've got "the best of hot rod's" , HP books Ford Windsor, and SA design's Ford Performance.
  11. 351W rebuild manual?

    All Ford Techboard
    You're the man Dan..... Thanks - Now, have you any tricks to unseize a motor that had water in #7 cyl? My breaker bar and I are heading out to the barn....
  12. 351W rebuild manual?

    All Ford Techboard
    Anyone know if there's a Ford shop manual for rebuilding a 351w? I've got some of the HP books on "rebuilding a sbf" but I'm mostly concerned about the oil galleys/plugs and whatnot. I took the thing apart about 10yrs ago and now I'm trying to piece it back together but all those pipe plugs and...
  13. Motorcycle carbs on Tunnel Ram

    Makin' Progress
    I'll tell you, you could pickup the throttle bodies off any of the newer fuel injected bikes and use them for the butterflies and TPS - Megasquirt the rest of it. I was hoping you'd have easy success with the carbs but there's a reason EFI has replaced them - there's only so much you can do...
  14. floor pan replacement / unibody frame rails 71 stang

    All Ford Techboard
    Yep, granted, the weld seam gets "contaminated" with the mild steel and can start rusting there. It's a little better if you use stainless wire and trimix.
  15. floor pan replacement / unibody frame rails 71 stang

    All Ford Techboard
    thanks guys, I was thinking of building my own with some 14# stainless I've got lying around.... I'll have to tear the carpet out completely and see what's what.
  16. floor pan replacement / unibody frame rails 71 stang

    All Ford Techboard
    OK, maybe this should be posted in the 64-73 mustang section.... I'm getting ready to put floorpans in my 71 and I notice that it appears I've got a top layer (inside the car) and a bottom layer (under the car) is this correct? the replacement pan looks like the inside... My front frame...
  17. Motorcycle carbs on Tunnel Ram

    Makin' Progress
    Wow Motorhead, great work! I've been considering building an intake like this for my 392 (& VW buggy) but haven't gotten around to it. my thought is your vac signal through that tunnel ram lower is causing alot of your problems, that suggestion to a low rise dual port for these 4 carbs might...
