Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Heads
« on: May 08, 2009, 01:50:38 PM »
I saw something earlier today on heads and it got me thinking.  What is the difference between all of the cast iron ford heads?  I looked for a website to explain all of this but had no luck.  Maybe you guys know if there is one or have any info.

WarZone / What really happened.
« on: February 27, 2009, 08:22:56 AM »
I know a lot of people on here are questioning what I did, so here is the other side of the story that no one has heard.  I am doing this because someone whose name rhymes with "Skip" has asked me to clear some air.  If you read this and dont like the way I did things, well to bad because whats done is done. 

Tony lent me an exhaust log for a 460.  While I had his log or what I thought was his log (remember this part, it comes into play later) I lost my phone and didnt have any means of contacting anyone for a few days.  Apparently Tony was trying to call me during this time.  Now a few days have gone by and I have gotten a new phone but I have lost all contacts.  Tony gets a hold of me and we talk and I told him that I still have his log and that I could give it back to him the next day because at the time it was dark outside and I wasnt going to try and pull a log in the dark.  Later that same night Brad calls me and said that Tony called him and was calling me a bitch because I wouldnt answer my for days (remember the part where I lost my phone).  At that point I said to myself, "well lets just see who the bitch is," and decided to keep the log a little longer but still had the intentions of giving it back.  Now after several more days have passed I go and pull the log off of my boat to give back to him.  The same day I pull the log, the real owner of the log contacts me and starts to threaten me.  At this point I say to myself, "fock this guy, I am gonna give him a little spanking."  I put the log back onto my boat and continue to use it but still had the intentions on giving the log back to Tony in a few days.  I believe it was two days later when someone and I dont remember who it was said that Tony and the real owner (which turns out I work with the guy) had gone to the head boss of the Needles terminal where I work to "tell on me."   Now to me this is an attack on my livelyhood so fock both of these guys, I will give it back when I am good and ready.  I was then forced to work in Bakersfield for a while.  While I was gone either Tony or someone with the same build as him was caught at like three in the morning in my boat.  This is where I then say to myself, "That motherfocker just lost his shit, this is my log now."  Now the real owner of the log sees me at work and tries to threaten me in front of all the people I work with about how he is coming over to my house blah blah blah (here is a little hint for everyone: dont threaten people if you are an overweight middle-aged man that couldnt handle yourself in a real fight!).  A couple of days pass and my conscience starts getting to me about this whole thing so I decide that these two clowns have been spanked enough.  I removed the log and gave it to 2sav and he then returned it to Tony.

The whole moral of the story is:  If you just be polite to someone instead of thinking you are some kind of badass you will accomplish a lot more.

Thats the whole story the way it played out, to the best of my knowledge I didnt omit anything from it.  Like I said earlier, if you dont like the way this played out thats too bad because its already a done deal.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Lifter ??'s
« on: May 17, 2008, 09:22:38 AM »
I was running my boat yesterday on the river and cruising around 3500 rpm.  All of a sudden I had this loud ticking so I shut it down.  It sounded to me like a lifter or something collapsed and not a rod knocking around because it was a light ticking.  Then the ticking stopped but the engine had a miss to it at high rpm kinda like a cylinder wasnt functioning right.  So I went out this morning to investigate further. I fired it up and no ticking.  Still has that little bit of a miss in it but it runs smooth.  Took the valve covers off.  Everything is tight.  Ran it with the valve covers off for a few seconds and everything looks good and getting oil to all rockers.  Is it possible that a hydraulic lifter has partially collapsed or anything like that.  What are all of you people's opinions on what this sounds like to you?  Thanks Ryan

Ok, here is what my tuna clipper looks like after a plethera of work to the gel.  These are the steps that I did in order:

wet sand 1000 grit
wet sand 2000 grit

2 applications of Meguiers cutting compound
1 application of Meguiers wax prep compound
1 application of Turtle brand scratch and swirl remover
1 application of Meguiers carnuaba wax followed by 2 wiped downs with 100% cotton microfiber towels.

ENJOY!!!   I thought my boat was a lost cause as far as the gel was concerned, but now I am very impressed with the way this turned out.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Sanger Engine and Other Goodies
« on: April 11, 2008, 08:06:40 PM »
Here is a few pics that I took today while at the machine shop where my engine for the Sanger is.   The pistons are Keith Black .060 and cost an arm, leg, and possibly a testicle (still waiting to see if the testicle is gonna be taken in leiu of payment).  The piston that is shown in the block is not a Keith Black (its actually a piston for a 460 that the wrist pin height is not tall enough.  Long story!).   Enjoy!!!

Needs trans work. I was quoted $500 to make it right.  I paid over 3k at a shop to have it rebuilt and it wont shift right.  All internals in trans are supposedly new.

Limited slip front and rear with 4.10 gears.

Engine runs great.

This thing is a billy goat offroad. I have climbed the face of comp hill at Dumont many times.

$3000 obo (reasonable offer)

Makes you think about that time you stayed at a hotel.  I stay in hotels almost everyday working for the railroad and the first thing I do is take the comforter off the bed and throw it on the floor because that thing never gets washed.  I have some pretty funny stories about hotels.  If you want to hear 'em pm me.
