Nice.

Thanks for the always well detailed updates. They always make me feel as i haven't done anything on my project though

Anyway. the manufacturers offering items that they have no support for is surprising. They must have bought some ones idea, not the tech behind it.

1967 Mustang coupe, Mustang II front suspension. W/RV camed, D3VE headed, 460/C6 (soon to be 557 CID w/ported police interceptor heads) out of the box BBC headers(with homemade steel adapters)

The race is not over till the Fat Block Ford Sings!

Augie, what pistons are those? They look a lot like the KB # 206's that I'm running in my boat motor.

Oh, and "Hi" again. I was off line for a while but now I'm back! Lookin' good!

They did..... Holley bought out NOS and the head guy from NOS is now doing NX and those guys REALLY know their sh*t!!! Wasn't on phone but 5 minutes and knew what I needed, needed to do, how to figure changes, things to watch for running alky and nitrous AND had the new alky compatible solenoid on the way to me. If anyone has questions or wants to get the right setup the FIRST time I would call those guys in a heartbeat! I talked with 4 other companies/manufacturers of nitrous systems and all they could tell me is what their brochure said, lol. These guys were all over it!!!

You are doing some great work on that thing. I've learned a lot by following along. Keep up the good work and posting the detailed info. It is a great read and fun to follow along.

Happy Easter!!!!!

Did my first powder coat job! Did timing cover in dark translucent blue over a silver base. For my first job it came out AWESOME! I can't believe how easy!!!

Then yesterday my daughter and I cut out and fit the Lexan windshield. Now to notch it and form a doghouse to install.

I mocked up the short block with a freshly ported and polished Eddy Vic Jr and installed a 726 lift cam to check clearances and no problem! I ordered my new Lunati solid roller
gross lift 796/803
adv dur 326/334
dur@50 288/296
LSA/ICL 114/110
lash .024/.026 hot
RPM range 4800-8200

I have to go longer on the pushrods to get my geometry that I want. Running Crane Gold Wide Body 1.73 roller rockers and Crane roller lifters. REMEMBER, I also had roller cam bearings installed. Jomar rocker stud girdles to stiffen it up.

Installed my crank trigger magnet wheel on back side of steel blower pulley hub. Couldn't get a crank trigger for a blower set up without going with the good ones from RCI. I found Aerospace had a flying magnet kit for BBC with roots style blower but holes DID NOT match up.... with a little careful "hand held" machining I got it to fit. I installed it when I checked the cam and run-out was LESS than .004. The recommended gap is between .060-.080. That gives me .020 to play with so my .004 run-out will be fine! I can also mount the data logger pickup on the other side and use the same wheel... DOUBLE DUTY!

Doing oil pan tomorrow and mounting pump, dizzy shaft, pickup and pan. Flex plate and tapping out soft plug holes.....

Will post updated pics asap..... I am starting to post my extras in the auction block so keep looking for more stuff...

Listed 10gal fuel cell and tall alum valve covers today. Have new Malory Unilite dizzy, intake, carbs, air cleaners, main girdle and stud girdle, roller cams, roller lifters and roller rockers and many other parts that I will be listing over next few weeks so keep looking back. Will try and give heads up on here when posting parts. Also selling my block and heads that I pulled out.

Stay tuned!!!!!

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!!!!

update

Getting rid of a lot of my extra parts finally and also making headway on the car!

But selling parts, posting, packaging, texting pics, shipping, etc, etc..... SURE CAN TAKE A LOT OF YOUR TIME AWAY FROM YOUR PROJECT!!!!!!! hahaha

But thanks to those who have sold to me in the past and those who are buying from me now. I'm just trying to help some people out.... I'm not asking for every penny I can get, but if a part has 5 passes on it I'm not going to give it away either! lol

All I do ask is that the people who buy something because THEY need it..... USE IT, and not beat me up on price just to repost it and make a few bucks. That's not how I see this forum being.... It should be Ford guys helping Ford guys... AND GALS!!!!

I have learned a lot, used it's services and tried to give something back!

LETS KEEP IT THAT WAY!!!

Thanks guys!!!! Oh... AND GALS if you are out there!!! hahaha

No big write up today, lol. You pretty much know by now what all is going in it! I did switch from the crane lifters to Howards (morels?), MUCH better movement. I feel a lot better! Clearance from valve to pistons is just short of .100 at closest point. So now everything is going together for the LAST time! Hope to have motor/tranny buttoned up over the weekend and then finish what I have to in engine compartment...... will see how it goes...

Hope all of your projects are coming along faster than mine (or finished!)

Take it easy!!!







Still have to squeeze the safety plate and NOS plate under the hat..... running to summit for some gaskets, lol.....
