I am looking into some issues on a 1965 289 mustang, and have got some Things fixed, but still more issues... so any input is good...



- exhaust is hotter on one side then other

- have some valve knocking, so some tolerances would be Nice, so I can adjust it.

- after it had runned for over one houer today to check and fill oil on gearbox, when stopped it, it started to boiling like hell..

- most times when do kickdown the engine stops, runnes okay but not full Power on normal driving

yes think its running lean, will adjust more onbe day... have found out that the boilong probaly is cap and that its "overfilled" since filled almost to top of rad.

found 3cylinders have all loose rockerarms, so lifters are collapsed...

true... looks like camshaft is bad, since after adjusted and tricked the rest to work, 2 lifters barly move, rest looks okay now...
