    I wanted to do my best MP&C impression, The only car anyone would care less about than a fox mustang is a third gen camaro, I don't have a camaro so this will have to do. I have plenty of room for improvement! Here is the hole the PO installed



    Remove paint / rust.





    Spots


    Grind




    More spots, more grinding, more spots, more grinding, close enough!

    Welded on the 87 some tonight. Filled two big holes with sheet metal and spot welded two screw wholes. I had much better luck with these using the copper backing. One I go the might better adjusted, I had it turned up to high, second I don't think magnet held it tight enough. I will post a few pictures tomorrow.

    I'm building a beer money 302 for the 64 - the plan is stock bottom end, new rings, home hone, GT40 heads, stock bolt down rockers and stock pushrods (as long as geometry looks good) E303 cam with proper springs / retainers, need to pull the heads apart to see if a valve job or any guide work is required. So far the bores and pistons measured out pretty good, cross hatch is still visible in the bores and there's very little ridge at the top of the bores. There is some taper, most bores measured 4.001" at the bottom and 4.005 near the ridge, pistons all came in at 3.997+ at the base of the skirts.

    I'll look around for a B cam Beags....
    Really? What have you heard? I know they don't have the recognition of Comp and so on, I've never heard anything bad about them either. You're the first I've heard. Hey, you work for Ford, right? Can you comment on the distributor gear post I accidentally put in the project forum. I'm wondering what Ford made their 5.0 OHV roller cams out of?

    I'm holding off as long as I can with a cam. I'll clean and paint every little bracket first. The cam will be the last thing I buy. Gives me plenty of time to make up my mind. Push comes to shove, I'll put the P cam back in for the time being. Hell this thing should run better then the 7 cylinder in the car now.

    I'm building mine on PBR money. I paid $450 for the engine and trans, sold a set of P heads for $525 and sold the trans as a core for $25. I was glad just to get it out of the garage. My motor is *suppose* to have less then 40K.

    yeah, I saw them at 200 new. They used to go for 50-75 on the local boards, which is what I call cheap! I guess they all got melted down, it's certainly had it's day in the sun... I have a solid flat tappet I bought from a Crower Garage Sale for 20 bucks. I'll use it. Let's call it "lumpy".

    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.
