    Wilwood Pro Spindle

    Wilwood spindles look good What are the Pros & Cons of using either stock height (Mustang 2) or 2" dropped spindle It would appear that standard may be better with standard inboard mounting position which then has both arms tilting down toward the chassis so lower roll centre. I'm curious about...

    302 pistons using 289 length rods

    Kev Agree with JacMac Maybe look around for some new old stock forged pistons as they have a thicker crown. Failing that the 5.4 is a good option I've done the 400 Chev rod combo (5.565") before with KB276 pistons and that works nice but a bit of a journey. 2.1" big end size and narrowed...

    4bbL vs weber or stack for max hp from 302

    This whole thing about 4 barrel vs IDA vs 4 barrel throttle body with modified 4 barrel intake vs Individual Throttle body injection is all seat of the pants stuff. There's no doubt a 4 barrel carb on a decent intake will make good power and is easy to get going reasonably well. Everything from...

    Mounting UN1 upside down

    Update on my inverted UN1 Firstly I went with the Kennedy 157 tooth Bell-housing as a starting point. I think this is originally for the Panterra It is a very nice unit and the cost was not excessive - Refer Pics I will have a spacer between it and the UN1 The attached picture shows the mocked...

    Core Plugs

    If the block is a little corroded or worn from previous attempts, it would be easy to get a machine shop to make you a slightly oversize aluminum one. I have made them before based on the steel ones. As far as i remember I went for 4-5 thou interference and just put them in the ice box to cool...

    302 teardown and rebuild UK

    JacMac rather than using 289 rods, aftermarket 400 Chev rods (5.565") are the go with 3.25" SBF stroker pistons (1.175) (also KB 276 Hypereutectic ) with .927 pin A bit of mucking around to make the big ends work with two choices available First option narrow the big end of the rod and use Chev...

    302 teardown and rebuild UK

    Eddy Cam choice is not that hard if you do it right the essentials are 1 Get your head around what you want the engine to do - is it something that you can easily handle in traffic with the odd track visit or is it a hill climb and track special? 2 The decision you make in #1 will...

    302 teardown and rebuild UK

    Just a suggestion Before you head down the track of overhauling your heads, price a complete set of new ones in cast or alloy depending on your preference. Sometimes by the time you have machined the seats, machined the heads for new guides and replaced valves and spring etc, then new heads can...
