Lol.
I missed this thread!

You need a dial indicator and a mount as well as the degree wheel, typically. And one solid lifter.
Your shop teacher will probably have everything, but the solid lifter helps to get an accurate reading.

Well shes all together on the stand waiting to go in. I am a little concerned about the break in period and what oils to use. Any recommendations?

I'm coming through the same thing with my 289, in goanna use joe Gibbs break in oil and his hotrod oil after that. As for break in it seems like everyone is saying hold it between 2 and 3k, changing the rpm periodically to direct oil splash for 20-30 min

I guess I more concerned about oil will any high zinc formula work? And what weight should I run?

I got 30 weight. Comp cams sells break in oil or you can just get an additive from then and run regular conventional oil. Stay away from high detergent or synthetic oils if you choose the latter. They tend to wash the zinc right out of the solution

I have electronic ignition already from petrinox or how ever you spell it and not sure if i want to put that much more into it. Does it help a lot ?

They say the electronic igniting helps with a lot of potential driveability issues. The Pertronics uograde helps with reliability and you can get some more energy but not like a Duraspark or DUI.

Well she idles fine but as soon as I put her in reverse/drive it dies unless I keep it at like 3k and i can't keep it running unless the timing is above 14*. Any ideas?

I had the same problem. Make sure you have good vacuum then you have to work the timing and idle together to get it right. I ended up with more base timing than I thought I would. Try to find someone with experience working with performance cams and get some advice.

Yes. It helps to have a vacuum guage when doing this sort of tuning.

Have you got the idle worked out yet?

Well.... It has developed a knock...... I don't think it's a lifter tho all the push rods are still spinning I think it's either my starter or TC studs rubbing on the block or starter. I hope

Lol.
So it was the spark arcing out of the coil that was the source of the noise?

Well that's a big relief!

I'd thought I better share a little problem I had with the car I couldn't get it to run quite right and had to have the ideal bumped way up like 2500 and have it wayyy advanced so much it was pinging really bad only to have it die when I put it in drive unless I kept the gas on and if I slowed down to much it would die almost as if there was a vacuum leak checked all the hoses and they were all fine so after hours and hours of check double and triple Checking everything and adjusting my carb over and over I was about to throw in the towel but as I was adjusting the carb one last time I put my hand on it and it moved.... I guess in my excitement to finally hear my car run again I forgot to tighten down the carb to the spacer and now it runs and sounds great!!! Really happy with it and can tell there's a bit more power now.... As much as a little 6 can have haha

Love easy fixes! And if I had a dollar for every time I've forgotten to do something simple, I could buy another mustang.

I was rebuilding an old Ford Ranger 4 banger back in the day, had the head serviced at a machine shop, and put everything back together, filled fluids, ready to go. I fire her up, and hear this loud splashing sound, and immediately turn her off. I had forgotten the oil pressure sending unit, and all 5+ quarts I put in her were on the ground. Palm->face.

Ha it's a double edged sword if I just took my time the first time I wouldn't have had a problem. Oh well it's fixed now!
