In the Nov/Dec 2012 Newsletter, I included an 'Engine Painting Tips' article from my experience over the years and thought I would save  as a separate document to reference from the website.

I have updated the article a bit and saved as a PDF file which you can now access, save and print by clicking on this link: Engine Painting Tips

Hopefully this will help some of you in your restoration of your 390 & 429 engines.

Jason.

Tim, generally after 24 hrs to make sure the paint is dry and started curing. I will have to add that to the write up sometime. Jason

Jason, how long after the final coat do you wait before putting the engine parts in the oven?
Comment by Rob on March 10, 2013 at 8:37pm
Great info.
Comment by Jason Edge on January 4, 2013 at 9:40pm

2 to 3 cans of engine primer, gloss black  and blue engine paint, and 1 can of the hi temp primer & exhaust paint. Of course the more coats you add the more more paint. I generally do 2 coats of each....and bake and cure as indicated in write-up.

Great post about the engine paint colors
Any chance you can give an idea as to how many of each can you did use ?
( That break dancing is exhausting stuff--LOL. )
Happy New Year

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…
