Well I finally got the tranny adjusted up and road tested her....wow all the work paid off she runs like a whole new beast! Only thing I noticed at idle after getting hot and running awhile she wanted to stall. I am guessing with it at idle and the extreme heat the fuel maybe vaporizing. Any ideas on how to get the eng compart a little cooler. Not that I plan on letting her idle for long periods of time. Also I adjusted the tranny per Lokar instruction and with the little block on the cable at the throttle I set it to about 33-34psi. At this setting she shifted good put a tad early and the passin gear took a bit to to kick in. Now if I set the press closer to 32-33 how would it change the shifting? Thx again for all the help guys!!!!
Also would it be out of the norm to run a gauge to the tranny permanently to keep an eye on the pressure??

That's a nice looking engine installation - those valve covers, but fully polished would look nice on my '31 but will not clear the roller rockers so they sit on a shelf

|acehogg69||Thanks for all the info and help. I have read the return spring on the Lokar kit is week I made a bracket but I need to get a smaller sring to make an assist return spring for it.|

|acehogg69||Well she is running. Got the timing set at just over 10BTC and got the idle screw set. Sounds great! All I got left is to finish up the fuel lines and adjust the AOD. Anyone ever done this is it tricky at all? I got the gauge Lokar suggests.|

|acehogg69||Well gents I figured out what the issue was, after I pulled the intake I cleaned the block up and then went to clean the intake when I rolled it over low and behold on the backside just below the carb was an unplugged port for the brake booster! I think that would cause alot of problems....lol. I am gonna put it back together tomorrow. Thanks for all the help guys.|

OKaaaaay - RTV is fine when used sparingly and if I recall, that goo only needs to be put around the water ports. Gaskacinch - nothing more then a good grade of flammable contact cement. Detractors can argue that point - I've done a low end test with the two.
Use a good high temp RTV in place of those manifold to block end seals.
Intake gaskets - I use one of these, FEL-PRO MS93334 (you don't use the upper gasket) or Fel-Pro 1250. Both should be available locally or cheaper at Rock Auto (http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php)
Unless you have changed out timing gears and chain, you should be fine - unless they have many, many miles and 'jumped' a tooth or so. Then you need this gasket set - FEL-PRO Part # TCS45449 along with a decent timing gear and chain set - I recommend Summit as they have a huge collection of Ford parts while Jeg's, IMO, sucks for anything but Chebbie.
You will need a harmonic balancer puller to check the chain and gears - Advance or Auto Zone as well as others have loaners. DO NOT use any other method. It can get really expensive.

|acehogg69||I am gonna step back for the day, finally get some sleep. I am gonna order a new set of intake gaskets etc and pull her apart tomorrow and god helping get it running. I do appreciate all the help guys!|

|acehogg69||I am convinced I have a vacuum leak. I am really thinking I might pull the intake and start from scratch. I was looking at Jegs for gaskets and I seen I few different ones that had different port measurements, maybe I have a mismatched set of gaskets? Dave and Al you mention cam timing, that's done off the timing chain? And yes the back port/for the brake booster is plugged. All vac lines are new.|
