Denny's Falcon

Hey gang,
I've got Denny's bird in my shop. If any one could spare a little bit of time, his wife needs advice on where to go with the motor. Denny told her he blew it up.
I don't think so, but can't turn the key and look under the hood at the same time. I've got the next 2 weekends free. Sheila and I would appreciate it.

My daughter (and my wife) seem to think I need to attend her wedding and associated festivities this week-end. Possibly next week-end?

Just conversed with Roger regarding this...... Will 9:30 - 10:00 work for you? What kind of tools will at our disposal? Maybe we'll just bring some general stuff? Do you have any info regarding what it did when it died? Is it a six or eight cylinder?

Let me know what you guys find out. I will be in the middle of juggling a 7th grade science project build and staining wood for my dining room project.

There's a bit of science to staining a table - you could'a just combined them. But the lava spewing volcano should be cool too.

Is it a six? If so, my '62 has reached the "terminal frame" stage, and the 3 speed and engine are available.

The first clue to the problem was while turning it over - not - seeing the fan spin So it appears the crank must be broken somewhere in the middle. At least a couple pistons are being driven, but clearly not the front two cylinders. We didn't go much further than to determine where it broke since it was a foregone conclusion that the motor has to come out and see how extensive the damage might be. Bill will be getting this info over to Denny's wife to see what she's wanting to do from here. I extended the invite to offer a tech day to his wife to pull it and tell her what the damage is - but that will be for her to decide. It's going to be a couple grand no matter which way she goes.

I think it was a 331 stroker, but right now it may be a 83 or a 165.
