    Re: bronco

    I ran this '69 for years. Had a 351C 2 barrel engine w\ 3 speed when I got it, otherwise stock. I swapped in a NP435 trans then a ZF 6 speed transmission, and 351 Lightning engine running a 302 mass air setup. Custom power steering box and HD pickup tie rod. The front Dana 44 had 3/4 ton axles, 4.10 gears and ARB Air Locker, the heavy duty 9" rear housing had 31 spline Currie tapered roller bearing axles, 4.11 gears and ARB Air Locker. 2" body lift and 33-12.5 BFG All Terrains, Beard seats, rollbar, Warn 9,000 lb winch, and much more. Did Moab, Colorado and California trails for many years.

    Nice job, Bruce.

    There is a nice looking early one up the street. No top on it, and sitting out in the weather for weeks now. Sad.

    I reduce the photos I post to take up less server space that the board has to pay for. Your photo started out at 4 mb, and then down to 2 mb somehow as I played with it. I brought it into Outlook, like I was going to email it, reduced it to 117 kb and put it in a folder, then here. During the process, it became right side up.

    Re: bronco

    Observation;

    I read that a car that runs in the 12s has enough acceleration that the fuel will slosh in the bowls to stand at a 45 degree angle, as the mass of the fuel tries to stay where it was and the car is moving from that spot. That's why Holley makes "slosh tubes" to go into the secondary jets.

    What is happening in the oil pan at that time? Same, same. The oil heads for the back of the pan. Would it be a good idea to collect it at that point by putting the sump there? Would it be better to stick a short oil pickup in that sump, right at the pump, or run a tube to the front of the engine so the oil pump can try to pull it forward as the oil wants to go backward?

    Oil pumps are usually driven by the cam using the gear on the distributor shaft.

    A big point of stress on the chassis is the area that carries the front suspension, so there is a big cross member there. There is an advantage in moving the weight of the engine rearward to help balance the car. If your sump is in the front of the engine, this can lead to some engineering challenges, and some pretty goofy looking oil pans.

    Carry on.

    Ok well there will be a break in time while I wait for a Jeep to catch up with the Bronco. And the Jeep may quit functioning. Difference in parts is a Bronco came with a 9 inch. guy fitted in the Jeep.

    Re: bronco

    I had to stop somewhere. Windage trays, baffles, trap doors, dry sumps .........blah, blah, blah

    Why did they put the distributor in the back, was the question I was trying to provide some reasons for.

    As you know, Holley makes "whistles" to help in the back with braking, and in the front for acceleration.

    Show of hands for anybody that put whistles in their Holley. Anybody? Beuller?

    Re: bronco

    Why did Chevy put the distributor in the back? Probably for packaging reasons. Where the oil pump ends up (the oil pump is driven from the end of the distributor driveshaft) determines oil pan shape which has to work with front cross member location.

    Yep! I might still have some slosh tubes if you need them. I got rid of most of my carb stuff before I moved, but there are still a zillion little parts out there.

    Re: bronco

    Chevy only had a 6. So there bring a V8 in cars that fit a six. They poked two hole in the intake. One for distributor and one for oil fill tube. Be better to have oil fill in front.
