347 stroker and procharger
I'd look into a girdle for under the intake. They're known to split the block down the center after 500hp or so. And honestly if you're going to dump money into it and go all out, you could always start with a 351 Windsor. Find one from 94-96 and they have a roller cam. You can find the right oil pan from summit and I believe the motor mounts will change right over as well as all accessories. I'm not completely positive on the electronics though. That's something you'd have to research. And if you don't want to do that route just keep in mind the 347 is known to be pretty hard on the mains so I'd look into good main caps and good main studs which would require a line hone for the caps to match the block and possible a main girdle.

what are you working on?

I'm not certain what the resistance has to be on that wire, but that could be part of the problem. Check to see what the manufacturer of the alternator says is a required resistance and see what you have at the wire. Could just need to add a resistor in line with the light and it will work fine

I have other transportation, and time to look at options. Justin, the issue with thrust washer is not an isolated one, with this engine, I've looked at many Ford forums and oil pressure loss from this happening is not hard to find. To answer your question though, the transmission has never had an issue, leaks, or shown any signs of being the cause. I think in my case, driving the truck like I stole it for most of its life has a great deal to do with it. But who doesn't like to burn the tires down once in a while or do dounuts in a super cab truck. I just waned to know for a future build if there is an alternative to thrust washers, could some machining be done to replace them with a thrust bearing, that has worked very well in millions of motors for many years, and what other improvements can be made. I'm sure a local machine shop could answer that question for you. I honestly haven't had much experience with the modular bottom end.

Without knowing year, make, or model it's hard to help you. But it sounds like your alternator isn't seeing a reference voltage. An alternator won't charge without have a keyed excite wire, and it needs to have the proper resistance for a "dummy light" in the dash. A little more info and I can probably help you or at least point you in the right direction.

On a limb here, have you had any transmission problems? Such as cooler lines leaking or blowing apart? Thrust bearings on a crank don't fall out for no reason. I'd be checking your transmission for problems such as too much feed from the pump to the converter creating pressure between the converter and the flexplate. If the pump in the transmission isn't being limited enough on how much pressure it feeds the converter it can have that effect on main thrust bearings.
