Appeals / Any saac forum members living in Canada?
« on: October 10, 2019, 06:43:50 PM »
Hello everyone.
I have a question/problem. I am currently trying to purchase some parts for my vehicle and the parts are in Canada. I was wondering if there was any saac forum members on here living in Canada that maybe able to help or would be willing to help.
The person I am trying to purchase parts from will not ship out of Canada to the USA. So I was wondering if there would be any saac members that maybe able to help me with forwarding on some parts to the USA from Canada and of course I would happily pay for the service/help.
Thank you all very much for your time and if you may be able to help me please pm.
Thank you very much have a nice day.

Hello Keith and Scott.
Thank you both for the advice and words of wisdom they are very helpful.
I have decided on the factory adjustable rockers made by crane however I am having trouble find a new set of sixteen. They where available a few weeks back but are not anymore?
So if anyone has a set or if anyone has any leads that may help would be much appreciated.
So scott if you have any new in stock please let me know.
I also have another question that maybe best for a different thread however Keith reminded me with his post.
The engine is a 445 fe 10.8.1 compression edelbrock 76 cc  427 fe aluminium heads, c7zx intake
3.25.1 rear axle ratio so what would you guys recommend as a good performance street cam that is a upgrade from the factory stock that makes enough vacuum for power brakes. Also 6000rpm will be the max engine limit however I doubt the engine will ever go past 5800 rpm to be safe.
I remember I believe on the old forum people suggested the 390 high performance cam from the early galaxies rated 390hp was a good cam. But I believe thatís solid lifter I would like hydraulic lifter.
Thanks again everyone for your help.
Have a nice day everyone.
Best regards
Dave :)

Randy
Thank you once again for the information itís very much appreciated.
I never knew that the early isky rockers accepted a ball/ ball pushrod, the only isky rockers I have seen in photos or looked at all look as if they accept the ball and cup style pushrod that is common on the factory adjustable rocker set up. So thank you for the heads up.
I think for my set up,the 445fe stroker is being built as a fun street motor that would see 6000rpm at the max as I still want the engine to idle nice and have plenty of vacuum for the factory power brakes.
(The idea is to go just one better than factory if that makes sense so as example 445 ci vs 428 aluminium heads instead of cast iron, slightly bigger cam to supply the more cubic inches while still being streetable.)
As the idea is if anything should go wrong the original motor is shelved and safe.
I think the best route for me would be the crane adjustable rockers with the jam nut and a good set of end supports as you suggested.
Once again thank you very much for your help and advice.
All the best.
Have a nice day
Dave.

Hello oldmil and randy.
Thank you all for the kind words, wisdom and advice.
Randy thank you for the information on the end stands I did intend on purchasing a set however I wasnít sure from where so I appreciate the lead.
Randy I  have a question if I may ask.
I am interested in using the factory style adjustable rockers also like yourself however are you using good original fords adjustable rockers,or do you track down a nos set of factory ford adjustable rockers or do you use the crane version or isky version of the factory adjustable rockers?
Just curious on you thoughts opinions and experiences.
Thank you once again for taking the time to reply and for and information or words of advice.
It is very much appreciated.
Thank you all.
Have a nice day

Hello everyone.
I have a lot of respect for the knowledge and wisdom on this forum and I am after some words of wisdom regarding adjustable rockers for a Ford fe engine soI hope I have posted this question in the right place on the forum.
I am currently building a 445 fe stroker engine for in a 67 gt500 and shelving the original engine so that the original motor is safe and if the stroker motor should go bank while having fun the original motor is safe.
The idea behind the engine is to go slightly better than a factory motor for example stroker motor equals more cubic 445 vs 428 inches,forged crank shaft instead of cast, aluminium cylinder heads instead of cast iron and so on, all the while trying to make it look like a original 67 500 motor as best as possible.(keeping original intake manifold, rocker covers ,air cleaner, pulleys ,accessory brackets)
I have a question regarding rockers I know from the factory I believe the rockers were no adjustable shaft mounted and again following the theme I thought I would upgrade to adjustable.
I wasnít sure if roller rockers like the shelby engine co roller rockers would fit under the original 67 500 rocker covers so I figured well what about crane or isky versions of the factory adjustable rockers which I believe are 1.76.1 ratio.
Does anyone have any information or advice regarding what is best to use? Roller or factory adjustable and what experiences people have had with different brands Or any other words of wisdom. I appreciate the kind words or any advice anyone can give me from there experiences in life.
Thank you all once again for your help.
Have a nice day
Dave :)

Hello Everyone.
I am currently looking for a 1967 shelby gt500 shifter mechanism for a customer.  I believe these shifter mechanisms had a extra piece weld on them as part of the special handling package available on mustangs I believe? I maybe wrong on that.
If anyone has one for sale please contact me and send me a pm.
I know this is a long shot and I'm sure they are hard to find however if you don't ask you never know.
Any help, information or leads are much appreciated as always.
Thank you for your time.

Randy and shelby Doug.
Thank you for the responses.I went on cobra automotives website today and could not find their 427 fe harmonic balancer listed anywhere? Do you have a part number or a web link you could post to the item.
All I found on their website was a professional products balancer.
Thank you all for your help.

The Lounge / 427 ford fe harmonic balancer
« on: September 24, 2018, 09:37:40 PM »
Hello everyone
I hope I have posted this question in the correct area. My apologies if it is posted in the wrong place.
I am currently building a fe engine from scratch and am looking at buying a new 427 fe style harmonic balancer.
I have found two brands so far scat #sca-8009. And professional products #80009 both are the street brand rated safe to 6500 rpm non sfi approved.
They then make some slightly more expensive ones that are Sfi approved and rated good to 10000rpm well beyond my fe (6000rpm max) I believe you just change the 8 in the part number to a 9.
My question is has anyone used these brands and what was your experience?  Would you buy a sfi approved harmonic balancer instead even for a street motor? or can someone recommend a different route to go.
Thank you all very much for any help,advice or guidance you can give me.
Thank you very much
Have a nice day
Dave.
