Ok, who makes a good timing set (chain and gears) for a 5.0? I know Ford does but is there anyone elses you all would recommend? Doesnt need to be a racing one (only occasionally gets ran and never high rpms), just one that wont screw up after 3K mile .

Alex really likes the Dynagear sets. I have used them with no problems in my racemotor.

How loud are those puppy's, KV? I mean, I know that's a relative term, seeing as how it's on your '69, right? But for a daily driver, aren't they pretty obnoxious?

I am assuming they only come as a gear drive, or do Dynagears come in chain too?

Sooo,

What was wrong with the old timing set?
Any cheapo double roller chain should live a LOT longer than 3,000 miles.

Not sure yet Steve, have to pull the front off (just cranked it and looked down at the cam, no spinning).
