Oiling issues on the 65 F 100

I pulled the valve cover to see if they was any bent push rods. All are good and straight and working up /down. BUT it's like every other one is pumping oil good.The engine has an Elderbrock intake. is it possible that the rocker arms out of wack . needs some suggestion / advice.Thanks in advance..
I did drive it to the creek and back. The spitting and sputtering was a timing thang,

Re: Oiling issues on the 65 F 100

it's probably sludge build up in the pushrods.

I'll check that. Just went and check the push rods from "SnoWhite"s 352 and they was solid.

This is an FE, right.

You need to remove the rocker arm assemblies, completely dis-assemble and clean the components and replace what is defective. You them must verify the oil delivery bores in the cylinder heads are clean and pumping oil.

Reassemble, adjust as to FORD directions and enjoy.

The engine is simply old and sludged.

If you have the system (early) where oil is also delivered to the rocker arm tips through drilled push-rods, those passages have to be clean also.

Of course, this is assuming correct oil pressure and the pickup screen is not covered with sludge.

Not an FE I though the had a 351 Windsor in it, a transplant, not a rocker shaft motor.

Re: Oiling issues on the 65 F 100

Everything looks the same as on ''Snowhite''s 352.. My friend whom I helped build her engine said the rocker arm tubing is probably clogged. If I take them off he will take them to work and go thru them.

Re: Oiling issues on the 65 F 100

I took the tapered bolt out and started the motor ,oil shot out..So I decided to pull the rocker arm off. I did and upon taking it apart spring started falling apart.Is it possible that the broke springs allowed the rocker to slide over and cover the holes in the tube. Where can I get the springs.
Thanks in advance

Re: Oiling issues on the 65 F 100

**** that's an FE rocker shaft.

I thought you told us it was a 351 Windsor when you bought it???

Yes you can get locating springs from a machine shop or a good Auto Parts store, for ANY FE made up until 1976.

Just keep them in order and put them back like you got them.

Re: Oiling issues on the 65 F 100

The boy I got it from ''said'' it was a 351 .I knew it wasn't when I saw the exhaust manifold. "SnoWhite'' has the same exhaust manifold. I've heard about spacers in place of the springs . Has anybody had dealings with them. Maybe I should keep it simple.
Thanks

The use of actual spacers is meant for HP usage. The springs should be readily available from any competent parts jobber.

If you will notice, there are supply holes drilled in the tube(s) and also the actual rocker. These have to align properly for oil to be transferred into the rocker arm. These tubes may also be sludged up.

Re: Oiling issues on the 65 F 100

Don't laugh, but I blow my tubes every time I remove an FE rocker, unless it's a nice motor running on modern oil and not sludged up.

Seems that blowing them, is the easiest way to get the fluid to squirt out. Just blow them. They'll appreciate it.

Oh um, Lester? Please use compressed air

Re: Oiling issues on the 65 F 100

I found some rocker arm assemblies a guy in Huntsville .with those and some more springs I can build an extra set.
With all the parts off the tube does look like a flute. I have them soaking in a valve cover and will use my air compressor (compressed air) to blow them out.
I'm not into speed with this old engine . If I want to get some where fast ''I leave early'' I'm still looking for something to put the 460/C6 in.
