Re: 1985 ford AOD trans.

OKay Thanks Ardun. Didn't realize the rear end would change the shift points that much, I'll investigate the shift kit required? Is it a specific part number or is there only one for the AOD?

Re: HVLP primer gun suggestions & experience

I bought this exact gun last year when I was restoring my '68 Firebird and used this for the primer/filler which is a pretty heavy thick material and it worked well. It's a nice gun for the price and...

Re: Merc manifold bore spacing and size

The carb I found is still on a '65 chevy manifold, bolt spacing I think is 3.25" side to side. I think that is the small one.

Re: Merc manifold bore spacing and size

Re: What to look for on a preliminary block inspection?

What size truck is it? F1, 2, 3 etc? You might get lucky and find it already has a larger than 239 engine. EAB heads are the highest stock compression heads, I think the EAC came out around 1950 one...
