Thanks for all the encouraging comments! If you'd like to keep up with the
1963 Ford Falcon Wagon build, check out all the stories here:
http://www.MyRideisMe.com builds a six cylinder Ford engine, step by step.
With guidance from my pops, a retired Ford mechanic, he shows me how, then
I give it my best shot, not always successful the first time, I hope
everyone interested in building their own engine can learn a little
Modified 300 I6 first run
First run of the 300 after eliminating the 1 barrel feedback Carter YFA
carburetor. Now has Holley 465cfm Carb, Offenhauser DP intake, EFI Exhaust manifolds, DUI HEI distributor, Walker
y-pipe, Thrush welded muffler, and more for the future.
Ford 4.9l (300 c.i.d.) Hesitation and Startup Fix
A common issue on Ford's 4.9l (300 c.i.d.) I-6 is hesitation and startup
trouble. Simply remove the connector to the throttle position sensor and
the idle speed controller and clean the terminals. 9 times out of 10 this
will solve the issue.
Ford 300 Inline 6 Rebuild Part 3
Me rambleing. Got the pistons in, having issues with the stud on the #4
main cap under the oil pump not clearing the oil pump. Got the wrong
engine mounts, 1970 motor mounts wont fit on a 1992 engine block. The HEI
distributor instructions tell you not to run a high vol oil pump with the
distributor. Yep I'm having fun!
Ford 300 six build- first run
This is the initial run of my 300 six build. It's got a Clifford intake,
500 cfm Edelbrock 4 barrel, Crane 901 torque cam, split EFI manifolds,
Cloyes adjustable timing set in advanced position, 9.0:1 compression with
~.038 quench, mild port, smoothed chambers with clearance around Exhaust valve and all necessary machine work.
Should be approaching 400 lb ft torque.
