Re: What is the vacuum test telling me?

I agree with Mark, looks pretty normal to me.
The fluttering is not very much, as slow as a T idles...IMHO

Re: Found Key!

Melina, that key SHOULD be brass, you might be able to clean it up without wearing it down too much with some CLR and maybe a little polishing compound.

All I was saying about repop keys was, maybe take a known working key to match up before you buy one. I have a couple repops that work fine...

Re: High Gear

Sounds like you may be a little lean. Try about 1/4 out on the mixture and slowly pull the throttle down after the shift.
Also don’t close the throttle as much...and close it when you’re in neutral, just for a split second before high.

Re: FS, Differential case and spider gear shaft

I haven’t had a chance to measure yet, but I see the shaft fits nicely in the ring gear half. The other half is way smaller where the shaft sits, like it needs machined to fit. Was there a smaller size shaft ? Also the shaft where the gears ride cleaned up with a Scotchbrite, I will measure it also....

Here the spark rod had came off at the distributor and it was still fully retarded. The exhau...

Re: Found Key!

George, I have a 55 ignition key and cylinder, the newer key’s slot is off compared to 2 older round head 55 keys I have.
There was another original Ford key around, but I haven’t found it. It also fit.

Re: Found Key!

Just for the record, a friend gave me a repop key and the straight groove is not centered and it no worky. Won’t even go in. :( It’s a diamond shaped key like pictured above.
I may try a dremel and widen the groove.

Nice chart Dan :D I’m in the last group, 3:1, I run Ruckstell generally up to about 25-30mph. The higher ratio makes it more necessary for Ruckstell, especially for braking, but I can climb most hills around here in Ford high/direct. But my engine is not stock. It takes some practice, but shifting i...
