That’s three good reasons. I may repaint mine if I can save up enough for two cans of paint.
A tall "sucker" for sure. Did you use the word Sucker for humor?lol.
But what do I know. I have a Pontiac with A Caddy engine that goes nowhere very fast. Lol
Good to hear from you and no, I'm not that smart (bawdy, yes).
bro. d, (whom you know too well)
Thanks Brother! Its been a while and had some exciting and challenging life situations pop up! Lol. Don't go there D.
Don't you mean,
Oh! I forgot.
wh"F" (******)at do all those stary things mean? there are 6 after the letter "F"
here is a short list I came up with:
Well 2 kinda work, failure and favored but I should let you tell me.
The only Ferd parts I can say that I own are a pair of Taurus electric fans and a 9"..... "Differential"..lol....
Hate to admit it, but if I had to be a ford guy, id like to mess with one of those big mel engines 462 inch I think.... They look eerily similar to a big cad though...
I ordered a can of cad blue from Hirsch... It actually matches the eastwood pretty close, well close enough anyways.... When I build another motor I'll paint it all again anyways... I'm doing all this efi shenanigans on a stock motor so I can sort the stuff out before I put it on a built motor.
Saturday morning is going to be pressure test and hopefully gasket material is here to make some intake gaskets..
Going to sandwich a used valley pan between gasket material. That way the pan can keep oil and such off my injectors and wiring..
If you are going to put this thing in a '56 with Mansfield bumpers, WAY KOOL! Should shake up a few late models at stoplights! Oh, and the batwing air cleaner should be a super sleeper at car shows.
Progressive linkage mockup. The secondary carb starts to come in at the same time as the secondaries of the primary carb. Should make it get 40mpg.lol
Under intake wiring and fuel rails completed. Now just need to pressure test yet.
Intake gaskets cut, but out of gasket adhesive to bond them to the valley pan.
Nice job on this
Thanks. I just hope the injectors can handle the heat. I figure it shouldnt get any higher than 240° or so.
If you are going through all of this. Then you are using an ECM. Why not use an intake temp. sensor under the intake?
Regarding any possible heat issue with the injectors:
Is your setup a return less (bypass) fuel system? If so I don't think there would be much of a problem.
I am running -8an return style with a bosch 044 pump. It should bypass alot of fuel with the stock motor. I believe that that pump and fuel system will provide 2 or 3 times what it will actually need.
Hopefully that can help keep temps down. If not, I can always open up the intake between the runners and make it an airgap type intake...
I did not think about that. It would be easy enough to add 1 more input to my megasquirt to be able to monitor that also.
