Push yer door shut but not all the way. By mornin. Dry floor. I learned this from an old man with a 53 buick he would drive daily.

    your not wrong about them drying up mate. Try living in Australia, all our muscle cars dried up 20 years ago. We have 1/20th your population, less cars made, all rotted away, not much left. You cant go to a junkyard here and find ANYTHING old. not 2 door, not 4 door, it doesn't matter. People scooped them all up years ago and squirrel them away. We also didn't get many selections for a "2 door muscle car" we had Ford with a XB/XC coupe or hardtop, Valiant had a charger (aussie charger) and Holden made a monaro and a few torana's. If you want a 2 door muscle car here they start at 20k for something that looks like that satellite. even 4 door ones are about 8-9k+ Your right, NOW is the time to go out there and get them! I am actually thinking of importing a 69 nova here, because it will still be cheaper to buy one in the states, even though our dollar is like .65c to your dollar, and it costs about 10k to get here with shipping and customs and ill still be infront over trying to get some local aussie muscle car. Keep up the good work bud!

    You like to use alot of gasket sealer....but is that also what ford says to do when rebuilding these engines? I am a believer of letting the gasket do its job...like the valve covers for example. Is it that imperative to put the sealer down?

    • Cameron P
      Cameron P 13 hours ago

      @ThunderHead289 and my engine tech gasket doesn't have a head side labeled or a front side. Does it matter if it doesn't have it? As long as I get the tabs under the gasket?

      @ThunderHead289 10-4. I am in process of rebuilding my 302. I didn't pull the engine. I regret it. But I do as I'm told lol it's my father in laws. You make me want to buy studs. I guess the gasket sealer will hold that gasket in place whenever I drop the manifold on

    • ThunderHead289
      ThunderHead289 3 days ago

      Absofreakinlutely is. Do it exactly as I show, or you will regret it. As for valve covers, always put sealer on the side of the gasket that mates with the valve cover. That way when removed, the gasket stays with the valve cover

  • William Charles
    William Charles 3 days ago

    Centering that timing cover seal by putting on the Harmonic Balancer is a PITA. I bought a crankshaft rotating tool years ago that had the same OD as the Balancer. I didn't even realize it when I bought it and the packaging didn't make a reference to it. All that I had to do was to slip it on the crank snout and center the cover. Sure made life easier, especially with the engine in the car/truck. I'd give you the name and part number of the manufacturer, but there's not a damned thing written on it. I sure appreciate your videos, I've been turning wrenches on Fords for years and it's always a good idea to see what other guys have to offer. You never know what you can pick up. If I learned something new every day, that day would be worth living.

    That's an unusual 1965 Galaxie 500. That roofline with a B pillar was most often seen on the Custom 500, which was the low end big Ford. However, the 65 Custom 500 would have had round taillight lenses set in a "flattened round" bezel to match the body lines, while this one has the Galaxie 500 taillights. Also, the lack of fender badge and chrome strip is more consistent with the Custom 500. This .pdf shows the Custom 500 and its distinctive roofline on page 11. www.xr793.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/1965-Ford.pdf

  • T Newland
    T Newland 6 days ago

    You invited questions so mine is: Do you have any knowledge to share concerning performance oriented centrifugal advance spring kits (for example Mr. Gasket 925D)? I'm running a mild 289 (F303 cam, Edelbrock Performer RPM heads, 650CFM Holley w/vacuum secondaries, headers, stock distributor w/Pertronix. Car is about 2400 pounds, 5 speed, 3.54 rear end. Thanks in advance.

    • ThunderHead289
      ThunderHead289 6 days ago

      As odd as this sounds, I have found that I snap the heavy springs more! Transfer slot theory works for all transfer slot carbs - with running a vacuum gauge and a wideband gauge side by side, I have seen the best results all that I have mentioned above. Also, I super simplified this video - when you open your throttle, cylinder pressure also rises - the higher the pressure, the denser the mixture, and the quicker the fuel charge will burn. So cruising needs more timing, into the throttle takes less. Remember, the goal is to fire the mixture as soon as possible on the power stroke to use as much of that stroke as possible.

    • T Newland
      T Newland 6 days ago

      ThunderHead289 Thanks for the quick reply. And thanks for reminding me about possible idle creep. The good news is that light springs can possibly tailor the timing to an optimum curve; the bad news is the greater propensity for failure. And thanks for the Holley tip.

    • ThunderHead289
      ThunderHead289 6 days ago

      Everyone makes ignition timing difficult, but it’s actually very easy. Outside of your throttle settings, you want the spark to fire as soon as possible without timing creep at idle (too light of springs will sporadically pull idle timing) So after you set your idle initial timing, choose springs that pull in timing as soon as possible without causing spark knock (pinging). Set initial by setting your transfer slots tova square, and adjusting your initial timing along with your mix screws to set your idle - you have about 1 full turn of the idle screw from square t slot to play with before you get an overexposure scenario. I personally run on ported vacuum. Typically I see that for most folks with vacuum canisters that pull more than ten degrees that this works best. Thunderhead289

    • ThunderHead289
      ThunderHead289 6 days ago

      If your screws are all the way in and it still runs, it means you have too much transfer slot exposed on your carb ie your throttle percentage at idle is too high

    Jim Jungle 7 days ago

    The OLD Weiand low rise 302 intake was better than the 289 Performer. Its replacement is the Warrior, which is much lighter weight and I believe is imported. The Weiand Stealth for the 302 is better than the Edelbrock Performer RPM, but is a high rise. The 289 Performer is better than the 302 Performer. The Weiand X-CELerator for the 302 is a surprisingly good one and much better than the Torker II. The Performer RPM gives up torque and hood clearance and the Weiand Stealth makes as much torque as any intake and more power than the Performer RPM for the 302, but still gives up hood clearance.

    Just experiment with your combo, just like the op did. My 9-1 454 with a fairly large flat tappet cam likes ported vacuum better. My old 406 small block with a bunch of compression and aggressive camshaft liked manifold vacuum. Just do what your engine likes.

    I was thinking pouring it in a bucket before he started pouring it out. I like what he did by bring the battery back to life. Go to the junkyard and see if they will let you have the old batteries if you pull them. You could use them in your solar system or as a spare to jump your vehicles. In a truck you could install it and have it only charging and not tied in the electrical system. If the other battery happens to die you can use the other to jump it.

    The exhaust notes in idle is wrong.... it should be four cylinders all sounding the same but it is off...once it warms up then if they all sounded..... it sounds dah, dah, dah, small bang.... not sure of the order... if once they are warm it does it then a value is open on the exhaust port..........might be the spark plug gap is wrong but that is pushing it....

    Actually watched this video to see a little bit of your ignition setup, I know it's been a while since this was uploaded, but what distributor is in your motor? Are you still running the Ford duraspark ignition system? I think that would be a good video idea some day to explain how it works! Love that channel man!

    It pulls a lot of air (and everything else), I once changed the filter in my 2004 GP and found a $20 bill in the air box.

    Thank you. Your videos are great and easy to follow. I'm quite enjoying this carb on my 1970 c20 350/350. I just bolted it on and set idle mixture and curb idle, so I'm looking into adjusting the secondaries via a holley spring kit.

    It is an extremely good idea to prelubricate the cylinder, piston, and rings before assembly. Also, it's much easier to install the ringed piston into the cylinder before placing the cylinder on the studs; leave the piston pin boss just short of the bottom of the cylinder, place the cylinder on the studs, and install the pin and end clips.
