    Spring saddle/perch bushes, Shelby drop

    Money no object because previous car was an XF same engine and drivetrain and the balljoint failed flipping the car in turn 1 at QR This is just good insurance and cheaper than a new chassis especially with the crazy prices x series demand these days With these arms you don’t have to move the arm to the rear as caster is built in so it fits well in the space, tyres rub a little at full lock thou so have to be a little careful when reversing but forward it’s ok as it will scrape but not rip the bar out

    look the thing with the open tracker bearing spring saddle is this: does not add harshness at all does make the ride smoother with harder springs does make the ride a lot smoother with normal springs never have to grease it etc. and can be rebuildable So yes it does make a good difference that you feel when unexpected, it's not a night and day difference but it's got a smoothness to it that is hard to pick but it's here, strangely enough i felt it more on the wet when the car leans it's a little more taut. I don't think it's a performance mod thou as I could not really get a chance to test it on the track and on the street you get locked up finding the limit of a well sorted old box falcon (sad hey)

    I use the opentracker ones, they use roller bearings, bliss, very smooth I have global west UCA and LCA both on bearings on the lower and Delrin (solid) on top, super pro on caster rods and sway bar and with 800pound springs and Koni the car is extremely smooth with no harshness at all, smoother than my mk6 GTI global west arms have added caster in them and have built in Shelby drop, they drop the top arm almost half inch more and no binding issues, it's a nice bit of kit, no fouling on anything

    Diff oil

    I'm running https://www.penriteoil.com.au/products/gear-box-oil-30 .... not sure why people run such heavy oils these days, that's like from the 60's, just run this and change it every few years, it's like 20W-60W which is ok, just give it some time to warm up and it will quiet as it warms up, I like it some of the 90W oil is just fucking stupid, if you'd be drag racing it I'd probably just run ATF and change it every few months

    351 into 84 xe

    what did you have to go through to get the clevo in? I have two clevo blocks seating here ready to be put in the XE if it's relatively easy, one has the 4MAB crank just needs rods pistons and heads

    Triple carb set up's for 250

    the cost vs everything is too high with triple carbs and I can bet my left nut that on the same motor it will make more power and torque with an EB s2 or ED manifold and going EFI for much cheaper than the carbs the eb2 and ed multipoint manifold is a little bigger than ea/eb it will start every time and drive better, would not bother with triple carbs unless you're drag racing it and every HP counts

    Stored crossy

    I use machine oil, never fails! I squirt it down the bores, dump a lot in the pan as well, take the rocker cover off and coat everything in there with machine oil, take oil filter off and coat all the crap in there and take dizzy out and squirt some in there as well. I have an engine that it's been apart for about 18 months now and not event the slightest sign of rust and it's not even packaged up or anything, just bare block and crank, pistons etc. all coated in machine oil and it's all good The pic was taken on Moss St ?

    crossflow porting results

    that was at .600, never went above that as I thought it might not clear my head and don't want to notch pistons it scaled quite well from .300 to .600 but was stupid from .200 to .300 ...wish I could had that from .500 to .600 ! were the valves cut from a bigger one? mine were 2.1" Chev valves cut to 1.910, seats were cut by UMR so I doubt they are anywhere near good but I knew that and just wanted to see what was what

    crossflow porting results

    I got 247.16 with a 1.91 valve and run off the mill 3 angle job without touching the chamber of an unmarked head, 39mm cross section on the face of the runner so I guess that's a pretty good flowing head for a stock port size and valve size can you talk about the seat or how the valve was cut ?
