no matter what they should take the tires back i work at an auto shop an we see alot of tires that get ply seperations or the metal on the inside of the tire lets go an our tire distributor always replaces them free of charge so i would take them back to where you got them or if you got them of the internet call them also easy way to tell if there bad is spin the tire look at the tread see if its still round an then look at the sidewalls an spin it an make sure there straight just in case you didnt know

I purchased them from Tire Rack. They wouldnt take them back because they were on the truck for a few days over a month. They only had around 900 miles on them. They lost my business. Called Brigstone they wouldnt take them back either. Finally sold them about 2 years later for 100.00 each. Brigstone / Firestone lost my business too.
I went to Rickson and purchased some 19.5 rims and some F load range 225 70 General drive tires for the rear and steer tires for the front. Not an issue since. Hoping these tires last the rest of my life.

Now for the exhaust. Thoughts were at first were 2.5" duals with a crossover or "X" pipe. There wasnt realy a lot of room for this with dual tanks. The is plenty of ground clearance but exhaust would be hanging a bit low. Looked at a lot of different turbo style mufflers but was realy wanting something rather quiet. Reasons one my ears have seen to much abuse over the years, not realy interested in a more powerful stereo. Big reason ever back up and not feel or hear your crunching something?
Talking to a few muffler shops they wanted to place both mufflers on the passenger side of the truck. Thought that was a bit lame. At this point thought it might work out best all around to find a dual inlet 2.5 muffler with a 3" single outlet. Most of the factory pipes could be retained. I love the look of duals out the back but this is a tow vehicle a big single should be fine. Serching once again found plenty of single inlet dual outlet mufflers.
Finaly looking through walkers stuff looked in the RV section. There was a ricently added muffler. It was dual inlet 2.5 single out 3". Called Walker and spoke with an engineer. He told me it was a direct for a factory Ford motor motor home chassis with a 460. He also stated that the factory muffler was about 8" of back pressure this muffler was only 1". So I ordered one.

Well here is the muffler used all the existing factory pipes almost a bolt on. Thought it might be a water heater for an RV at first. Fuel economy didnt improve but power picked up. Its relitively quiet. Think the engine is having issues maybe some toasted valves from the original owner running 44* total advance. Guessing at this point an intake better than a Performer is needed. Also guessing the D3 heads still have the big lumps in the exhaust. All the real smoky diesels want to race me thinking mine is a diesel.
I will try to dig up the number. Been real busy trying to get my Merc ready for the car show at Ford World Headquartres and orientation day at Waterford race course the next day 30th and 31st

Next I began thinking about the heads. Purchased a 78 F150 with blown head gaskets and a sweet bed that was needed for my 78 F150. The bed on it split in half bringing the ZF trans home for the dually.
The heads were D3s the same as on my dually. Removed them and tore them down. I was shocked that the lumps for the EGR drillings were so huge. Couldnt eve stick my finger through the exhaust port. Without a head to cut up wasnt realy shure how the crossdrilling would look if they were removed. The drilling the length of the head's wall thickness also protruded into the roof of the port.
A friend I used to port heads with had a set of DOVE heads that had been kicking around the shop for about 10 years. They were off a jet boat. I purshased them and went to work.

Some shots of the heads. Originaly wanted to keep the stock 2.08 intakes but pitting common to the old 385 series heads left me with two options. Larger 2.19 valves or seats went with the larger valves. Exhaust was upped to 1.75s. Would realy have perfered 2.08 and 1.75 exhaust but I just happend to have 2.19s left over from a 351C build up.

The heads aree ready to assemble. Wish I could have flowed them but the bench has a burned up motor. Wont do a big block. About two years ago (purchased a set of Hooker Super Comp headers. Started to put them on but half the bolts snapped. Wasnt ready to do head swap at the time. The headers were made incorrectly. I sent them back to Hooker and 4 months later got the first set of corrected ones. I think their customer responce was perty good.

You might be thinking about the Offenhauser "Dual Port".....

Have a few more valves to lap in. Painted the heads. Have been waiting 2 months for the correct retainers for the valve springs. I took some measurements with some retainers from a 302 but dont know if there + or - in position compaired to the correct ones.

So did you get that valve job done?

Did you finally get your valve spring retainers?


Inquiring minds need to know...... <smile>
