If you still have the OEM EFI, then tampering with the EGR valve will be of no benefit. The computer tune is designed for EGR. There is a EGR feed back potentiometer mounted on the valve that the...

Yup, the deep thunk is what I was experiencing. The mains were showing copper. The rod bearings looked good and I broke out my micrometers to check every thing. Left the rod bearings alone. In my...

I suspect you're experiencing main bearing rattle. Loose mains can rattle on start up, until they get some oil flow. A bad rod bearing will not normally come and go like a main bearing. My 302 F150...

Here is a little something I did to my 95 F53 class A motorhome, to firm up the E4OD shifts. The tranny had held up well for 125,000 miles, while moving 20,000 lbs. down the road. Only takes 2 Radio...

The gas shouldn't be high enough in the float chamber to leak where you say it's leaking.
I suspect you may have a bad foam float causing the high fuel level.
Even new floats will soak up fuel and...

Just for grins, turn on the ignition and put your volt meter on the green wire of the TPS and open the throttle. Need to prove the TPS is indexed on the TB correctly. If that is positive, voltage...

Headers don't have to leak or not fit. You get what you pay for. I you want to do it once and forget about it, try Banks headers. Mine went on over 8 years ago. Yes, Banks is very pricey but comes...

Hi Pat,

Some of the water pump bolts do help hold the timing gear cover to the front of the block. It is very possible that the timing gear cover gasket failed, once the tension was removed, when...

Those headers should have come with a bolt set. Is there a chance the original owner has the bolts? Or they are stuffed in one of the collectors?

Yes, 460s in motorhomes do break the right rear exhaust manifold bolt and warp the manifolds. And sometimes the head breaks at the bolt hole. The headers are the cure.
Do believe the hype about the...

Another possibility is any GM Delcotron, from the 60 or 70, with a Marine/Farm Implement regulator installed. The regulator is the only difference between a one wire and a 2 or 3 wire.

Push rod guides

Guess I'm out of date. I was looking around on Ebay and spotted these. Never seen push rod guides like them.

The engine computer does advance the timing, based on the EGR feed back potentiometer. You may actually see a reduction in fuel economy, if you remove the EGR.

The fresh air flowing in to the exhaust manifolds is part of the equation that the O2 sensor sees. You will do more harm than good by removing the air injection.
