Got to hear my 521 run finally!
Custom Scat kit from @Lem Evans
Heads from @Paul Kane
Cam from parkland @The Mad Porter

10:1 comp
RPM intake
Test stand had a 750 Holley, will be an 850 after installed in the truck.

Want to say thanks to everyone here for their tips and advice. The willingness from everyone to help a newbie like me out. I can't tell you how many hours I've read on this forum. Thanks for being here.

Got it in the truck!! It's been a mountain to climb! From everything from Covid closing the machine shop, custom pistons, wrong radiator, broken power steering pump, bad voltage regulator, faulty temp gauges, headers not clearing the engine mounts, wrong u-joints, dead fuel pump, defective wheel cylinders...the list goes on and on.

They say if it was easy, everyone would do it. Well from where I'm from I don't know anyone else building a Ford 429/260. I will say, it doesn't take much at all to turn the tires. Tuesday the custom dual exhaust is getting put in and I'll finally be able to drive it and do more than just mark up my driveway, lol. Still need to update to a 100 amp alternator and fine tune a few small things until I put it away for the winter.
