    Default 2.8 from Germany.

    Hey!
    I want to start the topic of repairing and restoring my
    Mustang 2.8 1979 hatshback.
    I bought the Mustang in 2015, but due to health problems I had to postpone ...
    But in June 2020, he decided to return to the restoration.
    There is very little information about 2.8 Cologne, I have books,
    but they are in English,
    and I have a problem with it)))))
    And I have a lot of questions ...
    I will ask them here and I ask you not to take offense at my English,
    this is Google)))))
    And the first question about Motorcraft2150 V2.
    I went over it three times already, but it still throws a lot of fuel and
    the spark plugs turn black and stop working. I bought another one but it has
    the wrong vacuum connections.
    Can a couple of pipes be blocked?

    The engine was in working order, but after I cleaned the carburetor, the engine began to work poorly and after reading a lot of things on the Internet I found this site and have been reading for a week without stopping ...

    Looks like it was running rich. If all the plugs were the same, I don’t see a reason for tearing it down. Likely a problem in the carb. Capping all the vacuum lines should not be much of a problem for troubleshooting. You really only need the vacuum advance if equipped.

    That looks much better! Hopefully it's just carbon build up from being too rich but you are redoing valves. I did some porting and polishing in the inlet and outlet ports. I think it made a nice difference. Any smoothing you can do will likely be of benefit.

    I picked up an assortment of carbide burrs from a work supplier and finished porting the exhaust bowls and ports. There is not a lot to do there. The book only states reducing the hump a bit and smoothing up the cast in the port. So that is what I did:

    Next was the intake port. The valve guide boss is a huge restriction to flow. The recommendation is to remove half of it, taper and smooth it to end up with a tear drop shape.

    Before:

    I wasn't comfortable to remove that much. The book even stated for race applications that it would be entirely removed!

    After:

    http://i1337.photobucket.com/user/82...165f5.jpg.html

    So I ended up getting one intake port and bowl done plus radius work on the intake and exhausts. The ports are done on the other two intakes, just not the bosses. All three exhaust are done. ON ONE HEAD! Time consuming, but I am being as careful as I can to not nick the seats etc. I also took the time to clean all of the water passages as well. I figure two more afternoons (weekends) and then it might be ready to go back to the machine shop for valve work.

    Спасибо, я видел твои фото и тоже думал об этом. Пока что в первую очередь шлифовка клапанов, но посмотрим.
    У меня нет возможности купить или скачать указанную вами книгу.

    I have no way to buy or download the book you specified.
    Serhiy, you are already progressing well but I have a second copy of the Sven Pruett book. Send me a PM if you wish to discuss purchasing it.
