Re: Update on 427 engine miss and death noises

Sorry to hear about your engine MS.  Hope it's just a lifter and cam?

Re: Update on 427 engine miss and death noises

I need one of those junkyard $100 351W engines like Al McGee has.  He has successfully driven it all around the country to several bashes with NO REBUILD and NO PROBLEMS.  (Once I cleaned all his extra RTV out of the timing cover water passages, but he added that after he bought the engine).

There is something to be said for a basically stock factory engine!

Speaking of junk yard 351 windsors, are all 351s 28oz imbalance?   


If multiple things can go wrong, the one that will go wrong will be the one that causes the most damage.

Bought the oil and filter today. Got the fender dimples repaired from last year bash trip with a quadruple coat of undercoat. Close to being ready.
