78 Fury 2 door HT 55k original miles 2.76 rear, 904 trans. 2 bbl, still needs lean Burn to be removed. just fired it up today, fired right up. so far only mod from stock is true duals with Thrush welded mufflers (like the Flowbastards) with tails out to the bumpers. typical corner muffler shop exhaust. I don't want to swap gears (yet anyway) (might) eventually look for a set of 3.08 or 3.21 gears for the 8-1/4. Car is a slug off the line, absolutely loves cruising the highway at 70. will never be a race car. Not while its mine anyways. just want to wake it up a bit off the line, nothing crazy. want the wife to be able to jump in and go, kind of manners. NO, NOT going EFI. No way. I have 2 4 bbl intakes on hand an old school 2 plane Offenhauser (have to go look for a model name or number) and a std Performer. also have a set of fresh from the machine shop, '302 heads. have a couple Carter/Edelbrock and a couple of TQs collecting dust. the '302 heads, one of the 4 bbl intakes and carbs, and a new cam WILL be going in. one of the AFBs is a 500 cfm. I cleaned/boiled that one some years ago, but threw it in a box. time to remember how to reassemble an AFB. as I remember it was pretty clean/ pretty good shape I also have a 600 ("625") or 2. I will be putting a thick spacer in if I go the AFB route as the last few I ran on 318s and 360s, had fuel percolation issues while hot. maybe the Champion radiator will be enough to slow that down? one of the TQs I have, is a 9801, with the integral built in choke. the other is a stock one for a 1980 49 state 360 (out of a Ramcharger) that I haven't used since Demon Sizzler went thru and tweaked it for me.... was meant for the Volare but it went to the attic instead. I actually have 2 of these, same carb number (don't ask me what it is right now) both got the same Demon Sizzler treatment, since at the time he was the only way I knew to get the shafts rebushed…….. already has an Edelbrock true roller chain and gears from the recent water pump replacement ( was that close, figured "might as well" do the chain) might be 8000 miles on that chain and gears. that will be staying with the engine. I have 2 cams in mind, looking at the thread on FABO about 318 cams my head is spinning. Im looking at a COMP 252H. (looking at its specs it is a "DEAD RINGER" for a stock 360-2 barrel cam with a whole 0.015" more lift being the only difference if you have the specs for both, side by side. this cam would be brand new (don't have it yet) the other option I am looking at is a COMP 260H. we're looking at doing the power tour in about 2 months and would like to do this before we go. we did the PT in this car with the existing cam it left the factory with and existing 2 bbl carb and Lean Burn back in 2009-2010. Id like to "wake it up" a little. Like I said nothing crazy. Thoughts? am I "way off" here? would you guys use the 252, the 260 or neither? The 260 is also used, my son ran it in his Ramcharger about 5k miles before he changed his mind and decided to go 408 and went with "whatever cam the machine shop said to" at the time I had him pay the extra to have it Tuftrided straight from COMP, still have the lifters that were used on that cam and they are marked which lobe they came from. would the "used but have the matching lifters" cam change anything regarding the "how to" on the break in? I have never used a used cam in a different engine than it was taken from.
