Re: Performance parts for 282 (intake, exhaust, etc)

I have an Edmunds 2x2 for the 120/282 Motor. While HP gains can be had with a 288/327/359 motor, I say with experience that the point is lost once you click into overdrive. A 120 with overdrive will get you there just as fast(**) as engineering a later motor. Actually MUCH faster as you will be back on the road earlier without having to re-invent the driveline.

PM me your phone number and we can discuss ransom.

As noted, nothing particularly special about this chain. If Egge doesn't pan out, I should have one for you.

The bearings at the top of the 39 cross shaft are NEARLY unobtainium. Kudos to the shop that adapted to get the job done. any detail info on the bearing and adaptation would be welcome to post....

As for replacement bearings for the 37 cross shaft - absolute unobtainium. If yours turn out to be a mess, lemme know, I "may" have a good used shaft...

my suggestion to remove the pitman arm from the drag link was to trick him into diagnosing the condition of the ball stud at the end of the pitman arm. These often have a groove worn into them. I can tell from the photo the ball stud is original by the way it is peened on. Good experience to see that it is greased otherwise...

But yes, simply pulling the pitman arm off the cross shaft can be done without detaching from the drag link.

Remove cotter pin.
Unscrew end of drag link (I use the end of my short crowbar)
Release from pitman arm.

When your cross shaft is out, report on the feel of the roller on the end. It is NOT easily repairable, unlike the more fortunate 39-later Packards....
