Is werbyford still around? Wondering if he wants to update his

File on my truck and predict what the new engine and other changes will push the truck to as far as ET/Mph. I think I got a pretty good idea what the current combo makes but I'm wondering if he can back figure my combo's new best of 7.29 / 91.73 mph @ 3900lbs. from the annual all ford memorial race this past weekend in hardinsburg KY at US 60 dragway. If he's got a time to gonk the current setup and the proposed setup that would be great!

Been almost five years since I lost my Dad; I think about him every day. Sounds like you had more in common than my Dad and I did; that probably makes it harder still.

Prayers for you and your family.

That is moving on for a 390FE in a truck. I remember when 3900lbs was heavy........

June 14 2017, 3:36 PM 

Now there are "trucks" weighing over 5k lbs.....

Also, and I read this in a welding book of all things, back in either 78, or 79 all US car manufacturers went to a thinner gauge of sheet metal for vehicle body panels.

I wonder how much weight you would save with a glass hood, and bed?

Still here

A busy time, my dad passed on two months ago, been moving his cars & parts & selling what I cant keep.

I forgot where we were in the saga but I do like keeping your combo updated as its probably the fastest real FE truck in the country.

Sorry for your loss werby... curious what the gonk says it takes for power to...

June 14 2017, 4:07 AM 

Push my truck to 7.29 @ 91.73 mph with a 1.535 60 ft. Engine is a very old well used / beaten C3 headed flat top 418 truck pulling piece that I kinda turned into a research deal, has a mix of the old top end/ induction from my second to last 390, street dominator intake, oregon cams version of the 284 B8 comp cam, billet dambest carb, 2 inch header with 3.5 collector into 3" x-pipe. 13 x 31 tall slicks with 4.86 gear last weekend, weather varied from 85-90 degrees, 20-40% humidity, air density was 84-90, the one time I looked my neighbors barometer 29.89... Same trans and converter as always, also wondering what the gonk says it takes to go 7.15 @ 94, 6.90, 6.50, 6.20, and 5.90... when ever you have time is great no rush . Again sorry for loss, gods speed to your dad.

So sorry to hear Bill has passed

I enjoyed his company very much. Losing your Mom really seemed to take the wind out of his sails these last couple of years. My favorite story of his that I still share was the fact that as a line supervisor in Dearborn in the 1960's, his pen was the "body gap gauge". If it didn't fall through the gap, it was OK to ship. RIP Bill Logan😒
