    Hotrodding Basics
    Hello there guys. last week I found my head gasket had blown out on my SBF 302. So I tore it down replaced the head gaskets, intake manifold gasket, and changed all of the fluids. I fired it up and it runs only if I stay on the throttle. as soon as you let go of the throttle it dies. I did...

  7. Building a Small block Ford

    Hotrodding Basics
    I'm making plans to to build either a 289 or a 302 with a manual tranny for my 1962 comet. The 170 six just isn't blowing my skirt up.

  11. Ticking sound (lifter, rocker arm?)

    Hotrodding Basics
    I bought a vehicle with a Ford 302 in it last year. It had been sitting for about five years, from what I heard it was only started once in that period of time. Anyway, it runs fine but it has a ticking sound. The previous owner thinks it's a hydraulic lifter. We tried some transmission fluid...
