I have used some of the QS components ends. Price was nice, but they wore out quick and bent easily.

I HAVE HAD GOOD LUCK WITH SPEEDWAY MOTORS.

Thats where I get ours.
We get the good ones.
I still bend them from time to time.

Bert might know.
I have Browning pulleys on the jackshaft of the mowers. But, they are a regular type with a set screw(s) in the hub, and are 1 peice.

Does it have a super rare clock worth $6,000?

If it turns until the compression stroke, the valves at that time should be closed. Which means, if thats the case, that valvetrain bind (which still may be occuring) is not the likely fault.
Whats the condition of the starter, battery and cables?
Ground the coil, pull the spark plug and see if it turns over fine. Before doing so, remove that valve cover, and check the valvetrain for binding/hitting something.

This thing better come with a dozen gold bricks in the trunk. Especially if you want the "super rare clock"

1986 CHEVY 3/4 TON HEAVY EMISSION'S WITH A Q-JET, SOLD THE TRUCK! ALWAYS STARTED, HIT THE GAS ONCE AND TURN THE KEY, I LUCKED OUT!

My last one was an 85 Chev. Started life with a 305, 700-r4, 3.08 gears and 235/75r15 tires. Couldnt spin the tires on ice.
Ended with a fuel injected 406, 4.11 gears and 33" super swampers. I bent the rear axle tubes when I was doing some landscaping after building my house. Had some decorative rock dumped in the box. Suspension didnt move. Said, put in some more. Twice. Went over the scale with 3200lbs in the box. 6 months later, when the Eaton carrier in the rear exploded, I figured out the axle tubes had bent..

I had a few Q-jets that worked, somewhat, too. I then used them to practice my mad shot-put skills and went fuel injection.

Nope. I have a very extensive list of things of major suckage in the automotive world.
It includes, but not limited to, Mustang II, Cadillac Allante, cimmaron and Catera, 350 diesel, mini-vans, twin traction beam, mopar (excluding hemi), Chevette, most every car built between 1975 and 80 except Ford F-series, Mopar, the guy who decided to put a diesel V-8 in a van body,v-6 trucks, early lock up torque converters, quadrajets, egr valves, secondary air injection, thermoquads and mopar.

I don't see a Thunderbolt on that list... bigsmile

Bert, you know I don't dislike all Fords. Just the ones that suck. Like your green truck. But even that has its purpose.
11  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Phil Bonner Thunderbolt found on: March 19, 2015, 08:29:22 PM
The first few came with a Borg-Warner T-10, then they went to the toploader. Some cars were autos.
Which trans did you do?

Pretty cool story. Thats one car I would love to have.

Paul, I don't think your system can handle the level of entertainment that would bring.
14  General / Coffee Shop / Re: What exactly is this? on: March 17, 2015, 08:41:17 PM
Ed, how many times do I have to tell you. You don't have proper certification from the EPA, DNR, Sierra Club, NRA, Madd, or Priests for Peace to operate my truck. Plus, you can't handle the POWA.

Bert

Seriously. We collectively came to the conclusion that the TVT in the #1 puts out just as much POWA. But, you cant fit in that seat.

If I were you, I would stop by the Force's. Just to tell John you saw his daughter nekkid in a magazine..except, leave out the magazine part.
