    Barry Grant filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Oct 14th. Guess his carbs had too many swarfs in them. I was never really too impressed with his parts, but I guess it's hard to compete with companies like Holley and Edelbrock.

    The reason for the 5.0 and 351 firing order is it takes stress off the front main bearing the old firing order has 1 and 5 in the same position,I think that Summit Carb may work well Ford Muscle did a good Tech article on one and the price is right,I actually run a Carter Competition Series 9635S 625CFM on an RPM intake on my 302 which is the predessor to the Edelbrock Carb.And the reason I advised you to run the aluminum heads is they will be more forgiving with compression and flat tops,also SBF's run best around 170 operating temp,also in your last post you mentioned working the iron heads with the ones I recommended that won't be needed,and don't get hung up on Comp cams you can always buy their decals if it makes you feel good.

    Sad to say Holley filed last month too. Hope they get their act together!

    Pat McCarthy deals alot with Erson cams and sells them.
    Thats also what I like to run in my Fords.
    I always liked the TQ30 Cam kit that Erson put out for the 302.
    Pulls inbetween 5 and 5,500 hundrend RPM's.
    The TQ is for thier Torque Series Cam's, Flat tapped hydrolic lifters.
    I ran it for years and loved it, But you better have high back seats.
    Because it tries to rip your head off and throw it out the back window.
    It's got a real nice lopy sound to it too, it turns everyones head when you pull up.
    Drop Pat a Line on here, he can give you the Cam spec's.
