Not sure what exactly to say about this first gen Ford Ecoboost V6. I have a theory that these heads have this restrictor built into the intake ports to keep performance figures lower than their V8 Coyote based platforms. Problem is sludge from the PCV system is now allowed to build up, hold valves open, and cause misfires. #workflow #machinist #machineshop #ford #taurus #sho #turbo #ecoboost #boosted #f150 #escape #explorer #flex

Final stretch this week until CON/AGGEXPO! Got a couple more scrapers this week and a couple other small jobs then I'll be Vegas bound. Let's link up! If you see me say what's up! #lineboring #borewelding #heavyequipment #machinist #machining #welding #980g #heavyequipmentlife

Maybe this explains the knocking and the rusty bores...three pistons down in the hole at .034", and one at .024" ... they are supposed to be protruding out of the deck by about .008" 🤔 #racing #engine #machinist #chevy #corvette #lt4 #lsx #drinkingh2o ? #norcal #sonomacounty #autoshop

More lapping experiments. This is the bottom of an old Anton vee block I reground recently. Shot video of lapping this one. Check out my YT channel in the next couple of days. Lapped the vee and the base. #toolmaker #shoplife #machineshop #machinist

One video and cutter was made by me back in September. The other was made today by my apprentice Tim while I am home recovering from spine surgery. Same tools just the way it should be. (Luckily we just bought another Anca or I might be pushing a broom around when I get back. 😜)

After 19 years experience in the game and laying down some killer passes, here's a trick from..... @southshoretigwelder how to not run short on filler rod.....👌

For those that were asking about the stroker 4v Cleveland motors - we've done more than a few of these combos over the years for street cars with several different camshafts, the extra cubic inches do a great job of making up for the ports that made these 351" motors not very fun to drive on the street. Scat Pro Lite 4.0" crankshaft, Pro I rods, coated Icon forged pistons, Crane hydraulic roller cam, Ultra Pro roller rockers, MPG port plates, and an Edelbrock single plan intake manifold for use with a Holley EFI system. #racing #engine #machinist #classiccar #ford #mustang #mercury #cougar #351cleveland #stroker #horsepower #americanmuscle #norcal #sonomacounty

im reminded of the great renaissance poet, sir lou graham who coined the phrase "feels like the first time" everytime i put this album on. ive probably listened to it 1000 times in the last 35 years, never gets old. i mean no disrespect to the original #blacksabbath recordings, but this interpretation of their music really speaks to me. and later in life to find out the band only had 3 days to learn over half these songs and be ready to record them for a live record. how it mustve felt to show up at #theritz on sept. 26th 1982 thinking you were gonna see the #diaryofamadmen tour, and get to witness this. in rudy sarzos book, he talks about how they used minimal lightshow and didnt even wear stage clothes. maybe the coolest live album ever.... #speakofthedevil #machinist #whatilistentoatwork #ozzy #tommyaldridge #rudysarzo #bradgillis #weregonnadoanumbernow #aboutcocaine #thatwastheveryfirstsongieverwroteinmylife #thatihaventdoneonstagesince1972 #attheoldfillmoreeast
