        EVALUATION OF J. BITTLE AMERICAN, INC. T.F.S. CYLINDER HEAD
 EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE
     WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS




I.    INTRODUCTION

      J.   Bittle American,    Inc.    (JBA)   of 9630 Aero Dr.,   San Diego,   CA.

92123, has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code

Section 27156 on their T.F.S. cylinder head (P/N WIL—302/351—990—2) for

installation on 1992 and older Ford vehicles.             JBA has submitted a completed

application and all the required information.

II.    CONCLUSION

      Based on the submitted information, and an engineering evaluation, the

staff concludes that the JBA‘s T.F.S. cylinder head will not adversely

affect exhaust emission on those vehicles for which the exemption is

requested.

III. RECOMMENDATION

      The staff recommends that JBA be granted an exemption as requested and

that Executive Order D—216—5 be issued.

IV.   T.F.S.   CYLINDER HEAD DESCRIPTION

      The T.F.S. cylinder head is specifically designed for installation on

1992 and older Ford vehicles equipped with 289 to 351 CID V—8 gasoline

engines.     The T.F.S. cylinder head operates in conjunction with the original

equipment manufacturer‘s (OEM) emission control systems already certified

with the stock engine.        The purpose of using the modified T.F.5. cylinder

head (P/N WIL—302/351—990—2)          is to increase the overall engine performance

and reliability which is accomplished according to the manufacturer, through

labor intensive machining and the use of the finest materials available.

                                                 —1—


The intake and exhaust ports are machined to match the gasket and manifold

surfaces.   The interior surfaces of the ports have been machined in the

critical areas to reduce backpressure and maintain laminar flow.       The valve

seats are machined to provided optimum sealing and increase flow.       The

combustion chambers are polished to eliminate hot spots which could cause

detonation or pre—ignition.

     The following are the T.F.S. cylinder head specifications:

            1.    Head Casting ———————— Cast Iron

            2.    Valveg ————~~————_~—— 1.94" Diameter Intake
                         —————————————— 1.6" Diameter Exbaust

             3.   Chamber Volume —————— 68 cc

            4.    Spark Plug —————————— Angled

v.   DISCUSSION OF THE T.F.S.    CYLINDER HEAD

     The T.F.S. cylinder head is functionally identical to the original

equipment manufacturer (OEM) except for its intake and exhaust valve sizes.

A typical Ford cylinder head may have intake valves ranging from 1.59 to

1.85 inches and 1.39 to 1.54 inches on exhaust.     JBA consolidated these

variation by designing their cylinder head to be at the top end of the

scale,   1.94 inches on intake and 1.6 inches on exhaust.   This translates to

a 4 percent increase in exhaust and 4.8 percent increase in intake when

valve diameters are compared to OEM top scale.

     Staff visually compared the T.F.S. cylinder head to a late model Ford

Mustang cylinder head.     No visual deviations were observed between the two

castings other then a change in surface texture in three critical areas.

Combustion chamber along with intake and exhaust ports were carefully

machined until a smooth chrome like finish was achieved.        Based on this

data, the staff concludes that the installation of the T.F.5. cylinder

                                       —2—


head will not have an adverse effect on exhaust emissions of the affected

vehicles.

     JBA has submitted all the required information and fulfilled the

requirements for an exemption.


APPENDIX


INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION AND USE OFP "TRICK FLOW" CAST IRON
302/351 "HIGH PORT" CYLINDER HEADS



PART NUMBERS:

        302—351~990—2 (with emissions)



Note:  All parts recommended/mentioned in these instructions are available
from your "Trick Flow" distributor.

 In order to make your installation,     as trouble free as possible, please
 follow these instructions:



 1)   Check for any visual damage immediately after removing the heads
      from their boxes.  If any damage is noted contact the shipper as
      soon as possible.

2)    Read and completely understand all of these instructions before
      you start.  If you have a question or do not understand any of
      these instructions, please contact your "Trick Flow" distributor
      for clarification.

3)    The valve guide holes need to be honed to size according to the
      valve stem diameter of the valves you are using.  We recommend
      «0012 inch to .0015 inch of total clearance between the O.D. of
      the valve stem and the I.D.    of the valve guide.   We recommend using
      Sunnen brand diamond hones to make the most accurate and concentric
      holes.

      Note:  All valve guides are machined to accept 17/32 seals.       We
      recommend using them.

4)    For the best air flow possible,    grind the tooling cuts,   in the
      casting surface just below the valve seats, until they fade into
      the cast port wall.   We recommend that this be done by a qualified
      ‘automotive machine shop.

5)    If you are using valves bigger than 1.94 inch intakes or 1.60 inch
      exhaust, you may want to bore the inside diameter of the valve
      seats larger.  We recommend 89 percent of the valve diameter. (Example:
      2.55 inches x .89 = 1.83 inches)

6)    For your valve job, we recommend three angles — 30 degree top,
      45 degree face, and 60 degree undercut.  The 30 degree should be
      approx.   .03 to .05   of an inch in width.   The 45 degree should
      be approx. .06 to .08 of an inch in width.      The 60 degree should
      fade out to the seat I.D.


7)     The heads are machined for 1.437 inch diameter springs.

      Note:   If you want to install larger diameter springs and cups
       a cutter can be purchased through your "Trick Fliow" distributor.

8)    Always use the correct pressure springs specified by the manufacturer
      of the camshaft you are using.

9)    If you are using quide plates, make sure you also have or use
      hardened pushrods.  Torque rocker studs 55 to 65 ft/lbs.

      Note:   Stock pushrods are not hardened.

10.   The rocker stud bosses are machined for 7/16 inch diameter screw—in
      rocker studs.

       We recommend using ARP brand rocker studs.   P/N RRS—3H {7/16 top
      thread) or P/N RRS—1H (3/8 top thread)

      Note:   Be sure to coat the rocker stud threads,   that thread into
      the rocker bosses, with high temperature low volute silicone.

11)   It is very important that after the valve job and any extra work
      you may do to the heads that you thoroughly wash out, in a parts
      cleaner, and blow dry, using an air hose, before final assembly.

12)   Install head gaskets onto the engine block.   Gasket to be used
      is:  Ford part number EGZE—60510A5A.

      Note:   Do not use any gasket sealer on head gaskets.

13)   After placing the heads onto the engine block install and torque
      the head bolits. We highly recommend that a grade—8 or better steel
      washer be used on all head mounting bolts under the heads of the
      bolts.  This will assure that the steel bolts will not damage
      the surface of the cast iron heads.

      Torque all head bolts to the following specifications:

              Using 7/16" diameter long bolts...75 ft/lbs
              Using 7/16" diameter short bolts...65 ft/lbs
              Using 1/2" diameter long boits... 105 ft/ibs
              Using 1/2" diameter short bolts...95 ft/lbs

14)   Because the exhaust ports have been raised to help achieve more
      power—a slight adjustment to your exhaust system may be necesssary
      to bolt the exhaust manifolds to our heads.


      On late model cars and trucks only minor pushing and pulling on
      the exhaust system is needed for proper alignment.


      On early model cars and/or cars with 351 c.i. engines in place
      of 302 c.i. engines may require additional alternations to your
      exhaust system.

      Note:  Recommended exhaust manifold gasket — Mr. Gasket brand
      Part Number 5930.

16)   Use only Motorcraft AG series spark plugs in these heads.

17)   Install intake manifold qgaskets onto the intake face of the heads
      using high temperature, low volute silicone, to hold it in place.
      Be sure gasket is properly aligned with all bolt holes in the
      heads and if any gasket material overlaps, into the intake ports,
      trim the material from the gasket.

      Allow silicone to cure to assure the intake gaskets remain in
      their proper position.   This will ease installation of your intake
      manifold.

      Note:  Recommended intake manifold gasket — Mr. Gasket brand
      Part Number 5832.

18)   Recommend using Competition Cams brand roller tip rail rocker
      arms, Ford magnum rocker, 1.6 ratio, P/N 1431—16.

19)   Intstall intake manifold.   Torque intake bolts at 20—22 ft/lbs.

      Note:  Recommend using a 3/8 inch diameter drill bit through all
      of the intake manifold boit holes to assure proper centering of
      the bolts within the holes in the manifold.

      This will help assure the intake manifold seals with the intake
      gaskets properly. . This only needs to be done if the manifold
      bolts are against the sides of the intake manifold bolt holes.
      If bolts are centered in the intake manifold bolt holes,    then
      these holes do not need to be enlarged to 3/8 inch in diameter.

20)   Install all remaining hardware and equipment.




                                           —7—

             BEFORE READING AND UNDERSTANDING THE INFORMATION




In order to make the cylinder heads interchange from side to side,

there are two holes in the ends, in each cylinder head to hold on

the air pump c?ossoverT

Use high temperature low volute silicone for sealing the threads for

plués and bolts.

The back holes, toward firewall, will be used to hold the crossover


on.   The front holes will be pluggedT   The two front holes must be

plugged with the set screws provided using the silicone on the threads7

Failure to do this will cause oil leaks.

Expansion plugs must also be installed in the front of each respective


head in the air pump holesf   Also,   use high temperature silicone in

the hole before installing the plugsT    The plugs can normally be installed


by using a small socket or punch and driving them in just below flush.
