Re: any questions

I'm new to this forum, so point me in the right direction if I'm off.
I' replacing the head gasket in me EA (3.9 centre point)
I've read that, instead of 40nm + 90deg, you can torque it to
Stage1 40nm
Stage2 80nm
Stage3 110nm
this sounds great, but will it work?
the source is E Series Headgaskets
any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Make sure you use new head bolts, thats the most important thing with them. I recommend using the 40nm/90deg, the torque to yeild head bolts they use do pull down with a more equal force when tightened this way.
I have never had a problem doing the TQ/Angle method, with tq to yeild bolts it is the best way.

Re: any questions

So it will be a 221 with 250 2v head
Have u ever considered efi?
i think a 350 holley would be fine consided it was setup for ur application, i mean down jetted and decrease power valves also maybe backing of the full throttle mark to only 3/4. This should be fine for a 250 but with the 221 might flood out unless ur revs are up cause the 250 head will lower vacuum mean lower airspeed in the ports so it will not flow too well at idle but u could tune this out with a holley even dual sidedraft webbers might be dooable.

Maybe even advancing ur cam to increase vacuum might help but like u said she will be thirsty so i would suggest efi anyday

Hi, The 2V head will work ok on the 221 but will drop the comp ratio due to its larger chamber. This will still be ok as it will run nice on ULP. The exhaust valve seats are prone to ressesion from unleaded fuels so i recommend you have hardened exhaust seats fitted as a minimum.
If you have the origional Stromberg WW2 carby it will work fine for a stock/mild daily driver. But a weber from an XE/XF would be an ideal choice on this setup due to its staged primary and secondary barrels it will give great driveability, economy and power.
The 350 is too big for the 221 ci engine, it would make good power at higher rpm but you will never get the low end driveability/economy as nice as the WW2 or thr weber.
Stick with the stock carb or the Weber and you will not regret it.
Just take note of the center exhaust port on the 2V head, it has a lower gasket line at the top of it and some extractors/manifolds will not seal it at this spot.
