Re: Impco 600

Whenever you (have) type(d) a large reply, try to get into the habit to occassionally do a "CTRL-A" + "CTRL-C" the entire text (Select ALL + Copy). So whenever something goes wrong during the actual reply, forum-issue or anything else; you always have (part of this text) in your PC's clipboard, whi...

Re: Forum Logo

No-one gets off that easy :mrgreen:

GIF only supports pure transparency, so either full transparent or solid color, while PNG also supports partial transparency.
That's why shadow-effects don't work well with GIF-files.

Re: Forum Logo

I see you put the logo up in the header, but I also see you changed it to a GIF. That's why it's shadow has become 'ugly' with jagged lines.
If you keep the logo as the PNG like posted above it won't get the white lines below the shadow part.

Re: New timing chain set installed

I'm still running on the same tank so don't know yet.
It would surprise me if mileage didn't improve by this, but I've been "surprised" with lack of change more often then I like to remember...

Re: Impco 600

I've changed (leaned) the output curve on a vaporizer with an added light spring inside the current one. The light spring I used came from under the acceleration pump cup from a Carter/Edelbrock gasoline carb. Have no experience with the larger IMPCO stuff. An AFR-gauge is mandatory when tuning an e...

New timing chain set installed

Just prior of my planned engine swap, where I will replace the 8.6:1cr 318ci engine in my Dart for a 11.3:1cr 360ci, I decided to replace the timing set on the 318. I already replaced the timing set in this engine some 4-5 years ago too, but I installed a simple/cheap/stockish timing chain and sproc...

Forumfix for the broken Photobucket images.

I've found a script that can fix all the broken Photobucket images on the entire forum. What the script does, is going over all the topics, and everywhere where there's an image hosted at Photobucket (which are mostly now all broken), it will still download it and store it locally on the forum's ser...

Re: Forum Logo

Another 7 years have passed in the mean time! 8) Currently, the logo on top of the forum has an issue that shows because it's used as a 'repeating background'. The preserved space is slightly wider than the logo itself, which makes it starting to show the next repeat-image on the right. On a differe...

Re: 454 efficiency - Maximum CR

Splitting the topic might be useful if I were to proceed with the 318, but my lengthy post was more to show the things I had done already which didn't do much for economy in my case, so that would leave the engine as the single source of the 'problem'. Hence why I decided to build a fresh high CR en...

Re: 454 efficiency - Maximum CR

Without trying to hijack burb's topic, I'll post some of the things I did to my car in an attempt to improve it's economy, yet to no/hardly any avail; I think I have touched/changed just about everything on my car that I tought it would improve mileage, but it all turned out it did not improve milea...

Re: 454 efficiency - Maximum CR

I've been thinking for quite a while about what cam to run in my recently built Mopar 360ci engine. 'Common sense' made me go with a CompCams XE256H, but this was mostly based on its advertised operating range, because I would be shooting for best 'MPG' (and power). I did however go with a 1.6 rocke...

Re: Site Upgrade

btw,
with the "more graphical enchancements", I ment 'sprucing up' the site a bit with some pictures related to LPG or something and add an image to each subforum, a bit like I've done on some of my (Dutch) forums.

Re: 454 efficiency - Maximum CR

Correct on the 212/218 specs at .050 for my cam.
I chose the cam purely on duration (good vacuum at idle for powerbrakes) and listed rpm operating range.
1.6 rockers were used on the cam to give it a tad more lift.

I'm curious where your cam specs end up.
