Re: 351 Cleveland fuel pump eccentric

Put a new pump on today and it pumped properly and ran fine for a short test drive. I have a few other things to work out and then a fun test drive. So for conclusion, the 2 piece sourced from a 351M/400 works on a Cleveland with a double roller with 3/16 to 1/4 inch clearance on the timing cover. T...

Re: 63 Comet dash assembly question

Thanks for the info all, it was Bruce's thread. I don't actually need the dash, but Aunt Lou is getting to the point were I need to go back through her and I will need to paint the dash this time and of course redo the cluster and install the new dash pad. As some of you know I have a few brand Xs a...

Re: New Maverick+Lightning

Electric vehicles are an environmental hoax. The carbon footprint to build and destroy them far surpass that of a gas burner. The electricity they use is generally created by oil and coal. I will make this argument with most of my vehicles but Aunt Lou is extremely environmentally friendly, she was ...

63 Comet dash assembly question

I saw on another thread were there was a 63 dash assembly for sale, it made me question whether or not the dash unbolts as an assembly or if it was cut out. I always thought they were part of the car, the car was being parted out so it could've been cut out. So my question is, does it unbolt??? Than...

Re: Parted Out '63 Comet Convertible, Will Ship,you pay, or P/ U

So what you're saying is if it's not still listed on your first post on page 1 of this thread, it's not available. And if it is still listed it is available.

Re: 351 Cleveland fuel pump eccentric

I had not but now I have, it's a 2 piece. Thank you for the link. My hunch was right, I ran down to a little boneyard time forgot this afternoon and went into the engine shed and there was a 351m/400 with the water pump off of it and sitting on the trans end. I removed the remaining bolts, pried the...

Re: 351 Cleveland fuel pump eccentric

After more reading I think I am starting to put the picture together but I'd really like confirmation from someone who knows. It appears there are 2 types of eccentrics, a 1 piece which might be an early and a 2 piece that might be a late. The 1 piece is thicker than the 2 piece, maybe 1/8 thicker. ...

Re: 351 Cleveland fuel pump eccentric

Thank you Fred, I saw that as well but it appeared to be a kit of some sort that has a 2 piece eccentric. From some reading it appears there are 2 different depths eccentric that interchange between engines with the same one but I couldn't find anything that was clear on which engines used which dep...

Re: 2021 Comet Gathering in Pigeon Forge TN

I got home about 11:00 last night. We were really pleased with the turn out and again we had many who said what a great time they had and that they'll be back, time will tell. I think there were 8 or 9 65 Cyclones with 4 speeds, that's gotta be a record in itself. My count was 24 on the ground at on...

351 Cleveland fuel pump eccentric

Good afternoon all, After getting back from the Gathering I have to think about the real world again and the Cleveland sitting in the shop. I determined that it was missing the fuel pump eccentric and since I was replacing the water pump I went ahead and pulled it down and I was correct. Now my chal...

Re: 2021 Comet Gathering in Pigeon Forge TN

We're the tent reading the latest and we agreed we had 11 or 12 last year so not more yet but Thursday morning last year we had 4 cars so way ahead now. 5 new cars and people, 2 new cars from old people, 10 on the ground and a lot of "see ya this afternoons". We believe we will have a record year fo...

2021 Gathering T shirts

Good morning all, As mentioned in another post I'm flying solo this year so Courtney will not be making shirts on sight this year. I will try to bring a reasonable supply based on previous years purchases and somehow try to guess what the turn out will be this year. I'm think of gray shirts WITH poc...
