partssmannMy stock 70 Boss 302 sounds good but nothing like what was posted in videos above. Sounds wicked, what are the specs on that built motor?
This makes me feel better. Mine is at a new shop, hoping to get it running like it should. Gets to 5,000 rpm and runs out of steam. Will go near 6,000, but from 5-6k takes a while. Noticed some slop in the distributor cap seating, and that could be several degrees of timing. I know it will never be really fast, but want it to pull hard up to 5,500 at least. My new Flaming River steering box made the biggest difference in feel. This shop is the one my Ford GT car partner had rebuild his ERA Cobra 427 side oiler, that never ran quite right when he bought it. I think they will get her running like she shouldpartssmann
digmans post a few weeks back got me motivated to get mine off the lift and pay some well deserved attention to her.
its a 1970 Doz1 race boss block with 12.5 to 1 compression, 572 lift cam, bud moore mini plenum, and every trick in the book to make an old school boss302 go fast, port plates, demon 850 carb (yes I took the autolite off, too much of a pain to deal with) 4 speed close ratio box, 430 gears in rear, and 3 inch custom exhaust all the way to the back, a full house.
ill post some better pics/vid of the engine and the car later during daylight.
PILOTJPW1, I can imagine, big blocks torque will push through just about anything, are you hitting the redline because your spinning your tires as soon as you get on it specially with 4.30 gears? I dont think I have ever been in a big block car with such short gears must be fun!Soroush, I have a 69 428 SCJ 4spd also 4.30 and would be interested in comparing some thoughts with you.
