    yeah - stock cam too. Me too. BUUUUAAAHHH.



    and I'm dead serious. If anyone has a B303 laying around for cheap, I would put it in the white car. If you know somebody with a B303 (All hail Beecam!), please get me in touch with them. I might get so churned up about a BEECAM!! I finish the black car and pull the white one in ASAP.
    I forgot the black car is mostly together, I don't blame you I would not open it up either. Now lets see if we can find you cam!

    http://forums.corral.net/forums/wind...llers-etc.html asking 150 plus shipping and paypal, wow unless they really get better with mileage like they say i would get a new one off ebay for 195 to my door. If I saw one for 100 shipped would pull the trigger.

    I was having an awful lot of trouble posting a youtube clip. It kept saying it wasn't a valid URL. Anyway, I'm thinking of this cam from Howards. They make it in both 110 or 112 LCA. I was thinking the 112 LCA would be better for me, I like my tall gears. Howards agreed with my choice other then they recommended the 110 LCA. They said it would have a little more low end but slightly rougher idle. They did ask if I had power brakes. I don't.I don't know why they call it a retro fit cam. It's not a reduuced base circle cam. They do offer it in a reduced base circle version and it's listed as such. The springs I installed for the E cam are good for .540"

    to be transparent without giving it all away, the white car is carbureted, is not a dual plane, and has long tubes. It will pass inspection here because it's 29 years old and an antique. Stock long block and a dremel. Not stock cam. Let's be realistic though, that would be TWO projects out the door any time soon. The black car is not low budget, and I'm not pulling the heads back off to put E7's on. I've got 1100 in the white car as it sits, and I'll list everything I bought for it. It is low budget.

    (I'm back at the computer desk for as long as the project lasts, can't say a lot more than that. The guys I'm working with are extremely smart, so it's enjoyable enough.)

    Glad to hear your budget is increasing, bummer you got to go to work to make it happen. What are you doing?

    I am going to put the shorties back on the 87. I have long tubes but don't have an H-pipe to go with it. And I want this car to easily pass inspection. The long term plan is turbo.

    I ain't skerd (of getting out run) bring it! I think I got a better chassis so I will be ahead at the 60' you'll have to run me down. If all you have to do is get the right sized belt I better hurry I have a whole lot of wires to move.

    Thanks Russell - I need some motivation! It stalled with the pulley business and I lost traction after that. I just took a new job so time just got limited but it also gives me a budget. To be fair - the 302 in the black car has Edembroke heads and Cobra intake but is anchored by a set of shorties. I need to just order a longer belt and get off my ass. Makes sense, right? Underdrive accessory pulleys with an overdrive crank pulley. Pffffft. It's cold enough now to be able to spend time in the garage instead of on yardwork.

    tell ya what... if my garage queen gets off of jackstands any time soon, I'll pull the white one in and take you up on the ported e7 v. stock GT40p bit. It's got an AOD so that should slow it down enough for a fair fight.

    There you go again showing us how to do it the right way. I will start with the small ones. I am not going for show car here. I don't mind the ford installed holes but the ones the PO installed I want to fill.

    I bet there are a couple at least a 1/2" I was thinks lots of cool down time

    Question, there are some wholes I want to fill thinking about using a copper spoon and just miging them closed. It's hard to find a helper to hold the spoon, think I could use a magnet to hold it in place.
    I would use a copper spoon up to about a 3/16 hole, anything larger than that and you are introducing excessive heat in trying to fill in the void.. For anything larger I'd suggest to make some sheet metal plugs out of 18 ga and tack those in, it normally leaves a less pronounced HAZ, less heat, less distortion..

    Here's some mounting holes I needed to fill after shaving a hood ornament and peaking the hood.... I used my Roper Whitney hand punch to make some plugs for the holes, but they could have been made by cutting by hand..




    Plug held in place with a couple strips of tape on the bottom, long enough to tack in place....





    Welded in place and welds dressed....






    Note the minimal amount of HAZ around the 1/4" plug. I would think you could use this method as well, you should be able to hold the plug in place with tape, just be sure to aim your torch ever so slightly to the outside of the joint so the wire feed doesn't have a tendency to push on the plug and move it as you add the first tack.

    A buddy of mine has a turret punch that we used to get some larger size plugs, I think they normally go to about 1" in diameter.

    Thanks Robert! That means a lot to me coming from you. Question, there are some wholes I want to fill thinking about using a copper spoon and just miging them closed. It's hard to find a helper to hold the spoon, think I could use a magnet to hold it in place.

    Beagle, the plan is for the 79 and 89 to be sold as rollers or parted out after all the parts needed for the 87 are removed. I can make you a package deal!
