Actually i am not sure.

What i have read so far, is that you don't want to adjust the modulator more than 2~4 turns either direction..

Also: The "striping" just indicates roughly where the adjustment is set to.

Also you can adjust the length of the modulator pin.

There are 4 pin lengths.

1) 1.601-1.611
2) 1.634-1.644
3) 1.650-1.660
4) 1.666-1.677

A metal coat hanger works well.

Yeah I used a coat hanger on the last one. Ill have to try the different lengths, thanks for that. So far I got it finished friday and took it to a car show saturday. Everyone loved my wagon and that monstrousity residing under the hood. Left that car show sideways lol no one expected that. Next on my list is to my a cowl induction hood.

Did you use the governor and VB from the same unit? Must use the white stripe screw in modulator. The 429CJ used a green stripe. Regardless need to set up the modulator and can adjust the pin length. If WOT shifts are low is a Governor or VB problem. Can grind a little off the secondary governor weight (or shim the spring). Can adjust the shift valve springs tensions to change the 1-2 and 2-3 shift points. Of course may be more work than you want to do.

So did you determine what caused the old unit to fail?

So the white stripe is better than the blue stripe? I adjust the modulator in some and it didn't do much. I'm thinking that the pin length is short enough to wear it has no to little effect on the modulator. So I'm gonnna try that, changing the pin length. WOT shifts at 5,000 which is where my rev limiter is set. It shifts great and runs awesome. Yes a washer broke and feel in the bottom and two parts ground each other away. Womp womp... oh well hopefully this one will last. All my friends are finally going to cecil county dragstrip this friday but unfortunately I already have plans.

Well I got the car up and pulled the mod. Turns out I have the longest pin length in there already. So I made one just a little bit longer and felt some preload while screwing it in. But it still shifts at like 1200 rpm on light throttle. Is this bad? Should I try using a white stripe one?

Default whays up

Hey Montego! What's up? You guys still running on the tracks over there?? We are closed down and snow covered!!! LOL

Why didn't you go with a full manual shift? Forget about auto shifting while street driving! No different than putting a 3-4 speed in it, lol...... though if you are still using cruise control it might be a problem, haha

I'm in tear down mode. tranny out, parts getting shipped to be balanced with new crank, new P/G ordered and have to run up to Buffalo NY to drop off injection system and pick tranny up in a couple weeks. My post will start firing up again with posts and pics in a couple weeks.

But keep telling us how you are going together and doing better to help keep my ambition up through the ugly season!!!!!

Will check in on you later!! And good luck with that shifting. We will have to find a track between us next summer and hook up for a day of racing!! LOL

Take it easy, Auggie

Hey guys! I have made some progress. Money is severly tight right now. Have been spending too much and making too little. Anyway I, in the meantime, have replaced valve stem seals and rebuilt my steering control valve. Which I am very pleased with, made the steering so much nicer and tighter. And it doesn't leak now. I didn't get to go to that track last weekend. We had planned to go friday night but my car wasn't ready. Then saturday the track was privately rented for the day. But its still OPEN! and I plan to go this saturday and post some vids!! I'm soooooo excited I can't contain myself lol. I need to put on two rear tires because mine are bald and dry rotted specifically designated for around town burnouts haha. And I'm going to install and h pipe because I have heard so much of the benefits! Also need a shorter alternator belt because I'm out of adjustment and its still alittle loose tho tight enough to run the car. The 460 is just waiting to have anything done to it. Once again lack of money flow. Yeah I was thinking about full manual but the kit was much more than mine and some times I like it to shift all by itself. Its already snowing there?? I hope we get some snow at all this year. I have been watching both your build threads. I'm glad everyone's moving along. Auggie I'm amazed that you are able to just do so much and switch stuff out like you do. My shop is so slow I need to get a new job. I can't afford this trying to go fast lol. Well I should have atleast a burnout vid by the weekend. Hopefully and quarter mile run as well! Auggie we should def get together i would love to see your car in person and maybe even get a vid of us racing side by side down the strip. That would make my day! I cant wait for spring hopefully ill have some stuff sold and some new stuff done to that 460. Thanks for being curious guys And stay tuned!!

Default snow

We got hit with rain and sleet Monday night with snow covering it overnight and that made for a MESS come Tuesday morning! Black ice and wrecks everywhere. Then more snow. Roads are clear by noon but mornings are bad.

I have put out more than I wanted too this summer but I have to start recouping some of it. I have 3 rail buggies to sell off and a Honda Rancher 4 wheeler and a Honda 1100 Shadow special edition that gotta go too. Plus I have a lot of extra parts that will go once I know what I DON'T need. Still have my 6-71 blower to research better and sell it. I have 3 separate Snap On tool boxes too. I have a Harley Davidson one in my car trailer that is for sale and I would like to sell one of my others off too. Don't need them all now. My big one was 10K with no tools and the medium was 7K with no tools. But with our economy the way it is, selling anything is hard to do. Worse case scenario, I bought a LOT of Lionel trains when market dropped and they have gone back up big time. I can start ebaying and at least double to triple my money on those.

So while I have put out a lot....... I still need to start getting some of it back, lol. My rainy day fund is getting dangerously low!!!

This summer we will have to think about getting together. They have the super nationals up here by me at the Quaker City Drag Strip in Salem Ohio. I live aprox 10 miles from it. We can race all day and then do the cruise in Salem or park at my place and go to some of the local places.

And find some track between us somewhere and meet up and get some pics and vids running them. I'm all for it! My Ford Expedition pulls my trailer ok but I would like to find a Ford Dually in fair condition with a blown motor and put the 466 in it till I get around to the Lincoln project... if that ever happens, lol. There is a nice Super Duty 4 door Dually, 2001.... up the road that I would LOVE to have but I have no car payments right now and really don't want one. But I would feel a lot better going long distances with that compared to the Expedition...

We will see what next summer brings and go from there.... but I see a road trip coming up, lol....

That's my main problem is I have a v6 dakota. And while its a great truck there's No way I'm pulling my wagon. Although my father has a trailer and a suburban so maybe I can make a family trip out there. I would live to get together, I have been showing everyone your car. Looks like your about 6 hours away from me. I could drive my wagon that far for sure. Yes I just posted up a whole bunch of parts I need to get rid of to recoop some space and some money lol. And I would love to sell my motorcycle too and have a good bit of cash to spend! Sounds like you a bit more than me to get rid of tho lol.

Default sell sell sell

I do have a lot to sell..... problem is I never advertise, lol. Got a fellow looking at a carb I have and asked about paypal. I told him I don't know..... I always buy and never sell, lol. I have an account, just need to learn how to send invoices and such.

I had 2 Dakota's, a 94 and an 04, loved them both. The 94 was custom ordered 4x4 extended cab with the 318 in it. 04 was 4x4, 4 door w/ 6 cyl. Both were great trucks but it takes everything my Expedition has to pull my 24ft enclosed trailer and car. And I have the 5.7 with a computer programmer and other mods. I don't trust the weight on the tires more than anything.

But like I said, I haven't had a car payment in a long time or a house payment in 3 years. I have a 2.34% home equity line that I use and then pay down. It's higher than I like right now but after this last go round everything I sell will go back towards it. Plus I pay 2K a month towards it anyways to get it back down. I may have to find a girlfriend with a good job to help supply my habit!!! LOL

I couldn't even imagine driving that Torino more than I used to before the new slicks and that was about a 5 mile radius!!!!

I did just get off phone and new P/G is being built now. Will pick it up in 2 weeks. Waiting on a call back from injection guy to set up a drop off while up there getting trans.

Lucky for the kids that their Christmas gifts are already bought!!! hahaha

I will be posting new picks of it coming apart within the next few days probably.

Take it easy!

Auggie

Well I haven't made it to the track yet but I got new wheels for the rear of the wagon. Have to pick up some new chrome lug nuts bt here's what they look like. They are U.S. Wheel 304 Stealth series from summit racing. Wanted sone 16's or so but they only had them in 15's so I got 15x 8's for the back. After I got tires installed I realized I could have got wider tires but its alright. Have to make my burnout video for you guys and then get the new ones on lol.
