Strokin!

I seem to be developing a small oil leak off my motor. It's dripping from the bellhousing cover so it probably means my rear main seal is starting to go. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] We've discussed the Big Block/Small Block weight issue thing several times and I think I want to stick with my stock block and rebuild it. What companies offer a stroker kit for my 351? I'd like to research this option as I think it would be cool to get some extra thump out of my motor. I would want to build it to perform best in the 1000-3000 rpm range because this is where I'm at most when drivin' the Old Goat. Could anyone come up with a good Stroker/Cam Setup for me? I'll be having to stick with my stock heads but will be investing in an Aftermarket intake. I don't think this should be a problem considering the RPM range I'm after. Maybe I could find some pre 70 heads like Doug did though. For me this really is like being given lemons to make lemonaid with. I'm already letting my wife know (slowly, these things take time) that I'm going to have to rebuild my motor in the next year. (Hopefully the leak will stay slow and allow me to take my time with it.) Anyway. Any help as to a good combo to go with would be greatly apreciated.

You mean, you didn't save all those links I posted a while ago?

Re: Strokin!

since i'm not a grease monkey by nature ... i would check out a fella i seen selling strokers on ebay, out of his shop in indy ... he been at it a while & has nothing but good feedback -- so far (!)

of course - i don't see anything of his on there right now !! - doh ! that's one indication he might be legit ... he almost always includes pics of his shop (probably scanned out of an equipment catalog - i know!) in his listings ... it's a gorgeous setup.

(not that i've been daydreaming of stroker's or anything) ... but he often lists the three-ninety-whatever stroked 351w ... drool

Re: Strokin!

[img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] I have it saved now Doug. I guess I'll be looking on Ebay as well then. If a guy had the right know how and tools (real expensive machine type) Then It's possible someone could put cranks together from home.

Re: Strokin! Makin\' the cam choice.

And, here's (attached) some more information on cam choices.
Compiled from a few different sources. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I should note, sadly, blushingly, I went a bit over-board this last time. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
The mid-range power is outstanding (2,500-5,000 and pulls to 6,000)
but I'm getting really tired of having to shut it off in gear. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
Without a high-stall convertor, it needs to idle too high to keep it from stalling in drive.
If I shut it off in park at 1,200rpm it'll run-on which is not a good thing. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Just for ref:
I/E lift = .498
I/E duration = 221 @ .050 lift / 276 advertised
Lobe separation = 108 (this is probably what's killing my bottom end)

Re: Strokin! Makin\' the cam choice.

How big can you make the 351W go? I saw a 427 stroker kit but I'm not sure if it uses the Windsor block. I saw alot of 408 kits. For some reason I can't load the download Doug. Would you mind emailing it to me?

Re: Strokin! Makin\' the cam choice.

Shoot. Is it that way for everyone?
It's a Word document.
You should be able to click on it and have the options of openning or saving. Hmmmm.


email on the way, Norm. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Holy Cripes! You can go all the way to 454 if ya really wanted to. [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

Edit:
Shoot.
I guess that link didn't work.
Just go here and select Bronco for vehicle, Engine Assembly for part, and enter stroker for keyword.
Part no. is M-6303-A454.

[/ QUOTE ] Bahahaha! OMG that would be a cool as low RPM chuggin' locamotive! Yes, yes yes!!! [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img] What would it cost though. From everything I've seen it's focused on high RPM racing which in turn means everything is built verry tough. Not that that's bad It's just that I do have a budget. lol. But man oh man! A 454 smallblock. Dangit! Dem wheels is turnin' up there Doug!

Re: Strokin! Makin\' the cam choice.

Norm the 392 is an easy thing to do.3.85" stroke crank and stock rods with 302 pistons.Whatever you do you want to have the rotating assembly balanced.You will have to notch the cylinder skirts for the rod bolts to clear.Also check tolearances closely.I helped a friend put together a 427 stroker from a coast HP kit.We wound up without enough rod side clearance.Also they sent the wrong bearings 2 different times.But man does that 69 mustang SCREAM with 427 cubes, windor jr heads and intake.Just remember for a truck and low end torque keep the duration short.For the money the world product iorn heads are a bargain.
