Re: '80 F26 issue

If you are seeing around 30 degrees advance at 2000, then that is about max, spec is probably closer to 27, unless you have engines with knock sensors etc. Maybe not such a good idea to advance timing past that point while under load as the timing curve is very important to avoid detonation.

Re: 1971 F26 Front Window

One quick tip for you, on the cut edges, sand them nice and smooth as any ragged edges, or sharp bits can start cracks.

Re: Few questions. Setting carbs / New windows

I spoke to soon lol. After running them at idle about 10 minutes. Now the prveiously good engine died and will not stay running at anything under 1000 rpm Old Carbs are very difficult to get right, sounds like you have identified the problem carb and it sounds like there might be something floating...

Re: Wind Turbine placement on 1975 Trojan F30

He ain’t the only one. When I used to consume a lot of rum, I too thought about putting a wind turbine on an F30! Those turbines are not that expensive. Now sans rum, solar panels are the way to go!!!!! Yup, and also the panels are silent, have you ever been near someone with one of those turbines ...

Re: Posting Photos for the Forum

I have always done it this way cause I can't figure any of the others out. Just email the pics to yourself , that way they can be resized to fit the forum, then just save them to desktop or what ever , then you can upload from there to the forum.

Re: Insta Trim / Boat leveler parts

Try a regular hydraulic repair shop, you never know it might just be a standard off the shelf piece, can't hurt.

I had that stuff, took it all off and replaced with the bennett retrofit kit.
