  • That is good news!

    • Running better with the new pushrods. The ends of the old intake pushrods look different than the exhausts (and the new ones), maybe they were just not so well made.

      • Glad that you found the culprit.

        • Great you found the cause, I was starting to wonder if the rocker studs were pulling out of the heads or ???
          Are your pushrods custom length and different Int / Exh?

          • Big blocks have shorter intake pushrods. Since it has a retrofit roller cam, the lengths are not stock. The studs screw into the heads on all big blocks, too.

            • Cool - glad you found it, every time I look at your car I smile. Very well done indeed.
              I also wonder if I could live with cherry bombs in the falcon if I ran full tail pipes like you have... hmmmm.

              • I'm going to change my mufflers, if that's any indication!

                • Interesting - have you looked at any Jones exhaust? They have some nice looking stuff, haven't heard any mufflers in person though, they are made in U.S.A. They have a small case oval muffler that will work on my falcon, reasonably priced too. Cherry bombs as I recall (Mom says I have expensive ears) are cool, for about a week, then they just become too loud, sort of like flowmasters... except they are never cool! IMHO.

                  • I'm thinking stock replacement mid 60s full size car mufflers.

                    • Can you actually get quiet quiet mufflers these days? I'm considering putting a cut out on the Firebird and silencing the engine exhaust completely. My first Firebird had all stock exhaust and it was whisper quiet going down the road.

                      • Climate change has changed the acoustic qualities of air to the point that whisper quiet exhaust is no longer possible.

                        Seriously.

                        Just the other day I started up a car of mine the has sat for 20 years.....it used to be whisper quiet, now it sounds like a derby car. Blat, blat.

                        Proof definitive.

                          • Could be the muffler rusted away and you now have open pipes, Stiney?

                            • Stock replacement mufflers is a great idea if you want quiet, with cut outs in front of them for racing.

                              Truck mufflers were quite often "round body" larger diameter than a cherry bomb or other glass pack - but still not too hard to package, just longer than a typical car muffler or turbo muffler oval case affair.

                              My 91 truck has a Y pipe then a single round body muffler, unfortunately I think it's only 2.25"... a bit small for a 351.

                              • I don't need the cutouts, since I take it all off for racing (weight savings as well as lower restriction)
