critique this budget combo please.

Post  orangejuiced91 on June 18th 2013, 12:53 am

1977 Lincoln 460, has 84000 miles. going to zero deck it and rering and bearing. going to use complete stock shortblock. I have some dove-c heads Im going to home port, thinking about using stock valves. I already have a stealth intake and a Comp 292 cam part# 34-336-4. it is 292/292 advertised 244/244 @ .050 560/560 lift. I know the cam and intake aren't perfect but I have them laying around. I have a c6 with manual rev valve body and a 2800 stall. its going in a 64 Galaxie with a 3.50 gear. Im looking for a fun driver. I already have a race car, so not looking for all out performance. It may go to the track every once in a while. Any idea how much power or 1/8th mile times it could run? Also not sure which rocker arms to run. Im also going to use an older timing chain set.

The cam is way to big, get something alot smaller.

Something with about 218ish @ .050 on the intake.

Your car is way to heavy and does not have enough convertor and gear for a can that big.

I kind of figured the cam was all wrong. I know I can't have my cake and eat it too. but really wanting that choppy idle. My buddy has a Bracket master II cam Duration 280/290, Lift .516/.543, . would this cam work? or is still all wrong? what if I milled the heads?

Spend the little bit of money on a proper cam for the application, it will run alot better and if you want a choppy idle have the cam ground on a narrow lobe center.

Talk with Randy Malik at RM Competition, He's on here and can get you a custom grind for a very reasonable price.

Milling the heads isn't going to solve your problem of too much weight, not enough gear and to tight of convertor.........

Get a custom ground "Street Rod" camshaft and get the choppy idle you want AND have good running over 1,200 RPM.

Use a production valve train with better, (drop-in), springs installed.

Maybe get some 3/8" pushrods with the EXACT length you need.

Get a Ford Racing timing set #M-6268-B429.

IMO,that Lunati Cam would also work fine i have used it in a heavy car before.

Later Mark.

I used that cam in a 466 with 2404 TRW dished pistons and DOVE-C heads.It's been so long ago i don't remember what the idle was like.The Lunati Catalog lists it as a Smooth Idle Power Range 1,500-5,000 rpm.I did use the .554-.554 [230-230 Duration at .050] after the .516-.543 cam and it had a little bit of a choppy idle.

Later Mark.
