SOURCE: 383 Stoker Chevy dies when I put it in gear

That converter should make stalling less of an issue, not more. (stall speed is higher than stock) Make sure that you have the cam degreed in properly, that you have the timing set properly (I'd use 8-12 degrees to begin) and make sure that you have no vacuum leaks.
With a stock converter, you shouldn't use any cam with more than 220 degrees duration...With the higher stall converter, you may get a few more degrees leeway. Also, the carb is too small for the application...should have at least a 750 dbl pumper or larger on there depending largely upon the car weight, gearing and what you have as far as intake and exhaust. (header diameter, length and design)...This should have been all figured out on paper before spending a dime for parts...Biggest mistake I see is people putting "mis-matched" parts together and expecting it to work (everything needs to compliment everything else)

Jeep sluggish between 15-18 rpms during shifting from gear to gear. what is the problem


i cant get that slang, DIff , gears, clutch to jibe. 1990 wrangler YJ
what does DONE mean.?
front or rear diff axle new, new transmission? what?
1500 to 1800 rpm 15 is engine stalled, or rpm of oil tanker ship.

got a MANUAL stick or automatic slush pump gear box?
but is no way to answer. you.
its a hydromatic A/T. right>? AUTO?
if yes,it has.
no electronics then. so clean AFT/ levels per operators guide not guessing? hot?
stall test pass (ask)
line pressure tests pass
kick down cable not stuck
or if M/t do say so, mine is, 5 owned..

but we only have one word here, sluggish to work with,
so that can be :
1: engine weak? (low rpms in all gears, and low power)
2: Trans slips (or flares) High rpm and low power (slip)

which is it?, the rpm in each gear answers that.
the FSM shows the range of rpm for each gear. ever seen a real FSM book? factory service manual.

Need firing order diagram for 1987 ford thunderbird


You did not specify 4.6,8 cylinder. Anyway all the firing orders are available just by entering '87 T-Bird into the search engine. I also have a 1987 Bird that was originally a V-6 auto and I changed to a 351W stroker that has 398 c.i. and converted the block to a roller cam with GT40 heads roller rockers Ford Racing b-303 cam and a polished aluminum dual plane high-rise intake and 700 cfm Holley. Net is 410 H.P. feeding in to a world class t-5 and 373 gears in a completely rebuilt 8.8 rear end. I swoped the front K member for one out of an '89 Mustang so I could use energy suspension motor mounts instead of those weak oil filled biscuit mounts. I retainined the mechanical fuel pump front cover and eliminated the in tank pump and replaced it with a dip tube. Have lots of 87 bird parts I want to get rid of. Like a turbo coupe hood can't use it because of air cleaner bucket clearance so I got a 3" cowl induction hood from Champion Fiberglass.com. Gosh I do run on but as you can tell I do Love my Bird. I need a V-8 driveshaft. Got any ideas. E-mail at nailbender5327_5@msn.com

Need to install a turbo on a 383 stroker from a diesel engine, is this possible?


It is but not good, the turbo from a diesel has a lower compressor rate due to the diesel engine has a lower RPM ratting then your Stroker. The higher RPM your engine revs, the more of a restriction to your exhaust from the turbo causing your valves to over heat and then your burn a hole through them or your pistons.
A good size would be a T70 with a 0,96 AR exhaust and if your looking to get more power get the T76 with the 0.96 AR exhaust side. Guessing that the T70 should give you around 550 HP low boost (10 to 12 PSI) and about 600 HP (15 to 18 PSI) around 4000 RPM. Your compression should also be around 8.5:1, anything higher and your going to have detonation issues during your midrange and up and to nuts off your torque ratio that your just going to burn your tires during your boost stage.
Hope this helps explained the difference in diesel turbo and gas engine turbo and i vote for the T70B with 0.96 AR hot side.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

My distributor gear on my 89 Chevy 5.7 motor with hydraulic roller cam keeps getting chewed up.I've tried a bronze gear and a steel gear and still the same problem.What's wrong?


You can try putting a thrust button on the front of the cam (available at speed shops) That will keep the cam from walking back and forth. Also, check the shims between the gear and housing. if I remember correctly the clearance there is minimum of 15 thousandths. If it's tighter than that it may bind on the cam gear. Also, if the gear has failed multiple times take a good look at the teeth on the cam. If they have become damaged, it will continue to "eat" dist gear unless you remove the cam and either "dress" the gear or change the cam.

1990 Buick stalls when coming to a stop


Sounds like the torque converter clutch solenoid is bad. Unplug it and see if the problem stops. Unplug the 4 wire plug on the front of the transmission.

Stalls


he diff between a lockup vs non-lockup torque converter is the lockup simply locks the torque converter to the transmission direct electrically so there is no slippage in high gear. And there is no advantage to using a 2300 rpm stall converter if you are running a basically stock cam. However if you insist on this high stall speed torque converter you'll be able to lay down some impressive black marks froma standing start! One final note...unless you change your rear end gears your RPM's at a given speed remain the same. All the 2300 rpm does is your motor will rev a bit more before you start moving
