I will have to also recommend Booster Dewey out in Portland. He rebuilt the one on my 68 Mustang several years ago, and still working fine.     Mel

     Hell yeah, and not just ATI, and then customers want to know what takes so long to "just" bolt the motor together!      ::)

    Bad parenting is right!! That is almost unbelievable. To quote Barney Fife..."let me see if I've got my bullet". I know several years ago, the Franklin Mint had a store in the Mall of America {I don't think it's there any more). We walked in the door and they had a $1,000 chess set sitting right out in the open. I told the kids "don't touch anything in here". They had several model cars on display and the antennas and mirrors were broken off of many of them.   Mel

Not the original engine, but block was decked and stamped with vin number. I'm not the type to tell people its the original engine when its really not. Some folks would do that, but not me! Hope that clears it up.
Thank you for looking

Thank you for your honesty.

William,

If you can hold out to find a low miles SBY Laguna Seca you'll never lose a dime if not make $$ later on. Seems like the regular B2s are so plentiful the current market is pretty soft on those.

Ford only built 765 of the '13 B2 LS only in black and SBY (2 were built by Ford in candy red and gray for charity). Only 262 are SBY which makes them pretty rare and will surely be in a much greater demand 10 years from now. One will come up if you are patient like I was.

No regrets ever....

Best of luck,

Marty

My first advice would be to keep it stock or at least aftermarket parts to a bare minimum. With those low miles the car will be worth far more later on...

What are you attempting to do with the car when you get this wheel hop situation? If it's drag racing from a dead stop, keep in mind these cars were designed for road racing. You're going to have to change alot of parts and install some add-ons to keep that from happening if drag racing is your thing. You'll never see that money invested ever again and your resale value will surely take a hit.

I don't drag race my LS but when it comes to the power and handling on the winding road there's nothing more fun than one of these cars...

Just my $.02

BOSS 302 General Discussion / ATI Super Damper/Timing cover issue
« Last post by xler8ion on December 10, 2019, 11:36:49 pm »
During my most recent 69 B2 build I had switched to an ATI Super Damper using the original timing cover. The ATI has the 28 oz. weight attached to the back of the inertia ring and shell causing it to extend 7/32 (.218) toward the timing cover. With the original timing cover I had .030 inch clearance between the weight and the cover with the thrust to the rear which ran with no problems although obviously closer clearance than maybe preferred. For other reasons I subsequently have had to take apart and reassemble the motor at which time I decided to install a new timing cover. I looked at several wound up putting a pioneer unit on it. During mock up the weight on the ATI balancer now not only had no clearance with the cover but would dead stop the assembly on rotation hitting the flat bulged area just below the water pump both directions. Took it off and measured each cover at the impact area and discovered the flat area was cast thicker on the pioneer. Went and got a drake and an edelbrock. Same as the Pioneer. Talked to ATI and got the "I dont know never heard of that" stock answer. Measured the hub distance on the damper... 3 inches same as 69 stock and spec. Measured double measured etc. no other answer except these new covers are substantially thicker in that area. Every other dimension is same as stock. I wound up machining .080 out of new cover to give me ,060 clearance. (It's .253 in. thick). ANYBODY had this issue with an ATI 69 application and new cover? I have searched using every phrasing I could think of on the net and nothing. If not this is a heads up for others on this issue.
