Lem and Charlie

Got the pushrods today, all is well. A big thanks for all the quality work and support from you guys during our 604 build!

Should have it in the car this weekend and the headers built in a couple of weeks…then hold on to your self because the earth’s rotation will be changing!

PS. take note of the plates I made for the ends of the heads, I wanted to trap the soft plugs to avoid blowing one out at 175 mph!

Dan,

VERY NICE ! It looks like a work of art and I know it's a labor of love. Keep up the good work and keep posting pictures. If you don't mind show a picture of the CNC exhaust port for the guys. It's quite a bit different than the square port, that comes out of the box.

Also, as a further point of information. The exhaust flange that Jon Thee makes was patterned off of our CNC'ed exhaust port, (Lem sent him the template) and if you use his flanges, they should mate up perfectly without any port matching or grinding required. Are you planning on making stainless steel headers for your turbocharged engine?

Later,

Charlie Evans

Are those A or C heads?


Also, is that a lift your car is on or just a ramp? I like it, looks like it has enough room to pull the tranny and work on the inside at the same time. Sweet!

The heads are C's and the injection is a home converted cast 4500 intake, I'm using an Accel Gen7 DFI.

Ford 160's

Assuming those are Ford 160's I'm looking at, I'd be happy to share all the information I gathered on these injectors. It wasn't easy to find, and I spent a bunch of bench time developing it...I'd like to save you the trouble.

I have developed an injector offset vs battery voltage function. The 160's are very sensitive to battery voltage.

I have developed a crank fuel pulsewidth vs engine temperature function. Engine starts reliably at any temperature I've seen so far without flooding.

I have a nearly correct low and high slope as well as injector breakpoint. I say nearly because there is still a non-optimal fueling point in the light throttle mid-band area that I need a few more hours to sort out.

I have stoichiometric pulsewidth data for my 435" engine at idle and cruise as well as datalogs you can view/watch if you download a copy of my datalogger software.

My engine cranks, fires, idles, and drives around great, at a 14.7:1 stochiometric mixture at low load.

If you want this info, drop me a PM and include an email address. I'll send it all off.

Dan,

Thanks for the picture of the exhaust port.

Whenever the car/engine has some downtime, send me that intake manifold and I'll get it professionally polished for you. I have a guy down here that does great work and when he's done, the thing will look like it's chrome plated on the outside. It costs about $400 give or take a little.

Very Nice!!! Post some more pics of the whole car. I love any of the Falcons from 1960 - 1965. What are you doing as far as chassis set up on it?

I'm running a MS 4 link square tube chassis, my cert falls back to 8.50's this summer so I will update to SFI 25 spec this winter (up here we have a long winter so thats when I do the bulk of my work).
