Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Chaffin 270 vs 280?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Jeremy Gibson on Friday, March 24, 2017 - 08:21 am:

I really fancy a 280 cam in my speedster but I cant afford (read wife won't let me) a new cam.
Would I be missing much with the reground 270?

Unless someone wants to swap a painting for a 280 cam, I'm sure I could talk my way out of that.

Jeremy, More lift is not always better. Valve timing, duration and advance are just as important as lift. Lift only gives you more top end but you will also decrease the low end. You need the best combination of all four. I can send you computer dyno test results of our 270 regrind and 280 new cam if you like. It shows you the comparison in torque and horse power for the full operation curve. It also shows the comparison to the Stipe cam and stock Ford cam.

Yes please if you don't mind, it would help make my decision much easier.

No one is addressing the real problem here. Jeremy needs a new wife.

Jeremy, Send us your address or post it here and we will send you the cam information. Glen

Seth,

I thought it was you when I saw the promo for the
History Channel new series " The Model T Bachelor "

Haha Jim, I'm just sayin', a wife that won't let you buy car parts?!? That's a fate worse than death.

Yes, but it cost you at least one head, Mark!

In my wife's defence we are saving up for a house.

She will let me keep things running, and replace parts as necessary. But I'm on a tight budget for go-faster bits. Having said that she has horses and they might as well eat money.

Yes, a wife with horses makes owning guns and T's much easier. My wife has five horses. Life is good.

I had a wife once who "would not let me" do this or that. Chances
are, she's still trying to control some other poor slob with that
dictatorial "my way, or the highway" BS. We all make choices. :-)

The only thing My wife ever ask is "do you have the money for it without using the plastic monster?" As long as I have cash life is very good!

Mine talked me into buying our 53 Merc. 2dr hardtop, 13 touring and 41 Ford business coupe and kept me from selling our 20 touring which she promptly claimed as her own. She is as crazy as I am though she Denys it.

It's nice to have a woman around. They can come in handy for a few different things (nothing comes to mind at this particular point in time). But, the correct camshaft is a whole different kettle o' fish. My advice would be to buy the correct camshaft, buy the little woman some trinket, and forget the house crap. Haven't you already got a roof over your head?:-)

My wife had horses and anything else she wanted. Then she decided she needed another married man with his own teenage daughter. Hasn't worked out well.

At the end of the day, could have bought a hell of a lot of cams....

Damn Rob. Didn't see that coming. Sorry to hear that. Been there myself. Dave

Rob, I'm sorry to hear it. I had some suspicions but wasn't about to ask. Time heals all wounds. God bless.

Time also wounds all heals.

One day thirty years ago my wife said something to our three year old about waste of time we spend on the weekends restoring our '29 Nash and going to car shows on Saturday and Sunday when she worked those days.
She said it to the boy but it was for my benefit.
So I said to the boy, for her benefit, ya boy, why don't we just go buy a 6 pack and chase women instead?
To this day I have never heard a complaint about all the old cars or the time I spend on them.

Balance in all things, and compromise, are the key to a healthy and happy life. Unfortunately, and one of the things my parents got wrong when I was little, it takes two to make things work well. It only takes one wrong person to have a fight.
Most people, that try to control, and demand, too much? Leads to one of my hundred or so favorite quotes: "People that demand all or nothing? Almost always wind up with nothing."
Rob, My sympathies to your situation. I have been wondering a lot.


How did we wind up here from "camshafts"?
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Hard to judge, each case is different I spent almost 30 yrs with a bitch. It was one of the happiest days of my life when it was over. She was into money and got most of it(worth every penny). I got the farm and all the cars. Now life is good, married Ellen 8 yrs ago, best thing that could have happened. She is involved with everything I do, so much so she put on the 60th MTFCI tour mostly by her self until the meet actually started when we luckily had a lot of volunteers to help.

Chad, BAAAD! ROFLMHO!
I was going to say, "Camshaft/shafted, maybe there's the drift?"
:-)
Dan, you definitely have a "keepher" now!

David, I can't take credit for the drawing--not sure whose it was actually, it was posted here at different points. But thanks for the Kudos, I had to save it to my computer just for such an occasion.

Dan, I had the honor of meeting you and Ellen briefly when you came to our Christmas party. And also by judging what I see on here, I would say YES, she is a keeper.

Chad, It looks a lot like Rich Eagle's work--note the smiley face in the wood grain!

I was thinking it was Rich's work too, always enjoy seeing his artwork.

I have 6 Model Ts and wifie bought all but one. I had to lay on the floor kick my feet, hold my breath and turn blue to get my tractor conversion. But I can take it to tractor shows and it has a bed on it so it can be a pickup or a rat rod. It gives me free starts and I get more questions and a bigger crowd than the clown car boys. the funny part is her tongue is tied in the middle and flops on both ends when she has a crowd that ask her questions.

Thanks David and Chad, I think so also.

Love is grand. Divorce is 500 grand.

Sorry to say I got you all beat ....

I re-married my second wife shortly after our first divorce.

Needless to say that was followed by a second divorce.

I am a first class dumb @ss ...... :-)
