As the crankshaft rotates while the engine is running, the counterwieghts and throws skim the surface of oil in the pan, and at times pick up oil as they rise. This causes drag on the crankshaft,(imagine moving your hand through water), and slows down the rotation. A windage tray is a baffle which removes the oil from the crankshaft as it rotates. This prevents the oil from clinging to the rotating assembly and removes the drag, increasing the possible acceleration rate and horsepower output.
I had a 74 Motorhome that had a 440 in it. It also had the windage tray and when I ask the dealers about it they said it gave me about 10 hp more due to less drag . It is my understanding, could be wrong here, but I was also told that the Boss 302 also has a tray in them, never seen one apart so can't be sure of that fact..One thing you do have to consider if you instal a tray is to mark the full line on your dipstaick before you instal the tray, as the extra gasket and the tray will make about a one quarte difference on the level of your oil.
I’m working through understanding all of the wiring in my ‘65 while waiting for it to come back from paint. I’m working on the starting system now and have a question that I can’t figure out from the diagrams.
What does the red/white wire go to in this pic? It is on the engine gauge feed...
It’s about 100 degrees here in sunny North Texas. Feels even hotter. We’ve got too much to do on my daughter’s car, so it’s time to get creative. I would have gotten a single larger unit, but my in-laws had these two 5,000btu units new in the box, so I’m giving them a test drive.
After an hour...
I purchased the following steering wheel from CJ Pony Parts for my early 65 Mustang coupe (not 64.5): CJ Classics Steering Wheel Kit Shelby-Style Woodgrain 15" 9-Bolt With Horn Button 1965-1967
I know this is simple but I can't figure out the wiring for the life of me. I have the wheel...
