  1. cazsper, I put a 1970 429 (385 series same as a 460) that has the 521 stroker kit, in my 73 Mach 1 and im running the Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake with a Holley 4150 carb, and a K&N drop base air cleaner that has a 3" height and my stock mach 1 hood clears just fine. But i do not have the air dam equipment that mounts to the underside of my hood either. Hope this helps.
  2. I have been talking to Cazper about my build for a couple days now. I did a all forged Scat 521 stroker assembly with Comp cams roller cam retrofit kit. Still running stock heads that had guide plates installed with beehive springs, otherwise stock 1970 heads, as well as stock 2:75-1 open rear gearing, and this thing is sooo much fun to drive on the street. When i roll in i get a lot of oohs and aahhs, and the torque this thing puts down is fun to showboat. I am also running the Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake manifold with Holley 4150 HP 1000CFM carb using a 3" tall drop base K&N open top a
  3. Yeah, I had purchased the Crites full length headers pretty early then after having them for a while started seeing people posting how low they hang and hitting them on stuff. All in all I am very happy with the Crites headers. I purchased all new front suspension and steering and got the progressive big block springs brand new and after driving my setup since February I think I have scraped my v-band clamps 1 or 2 times going over a pretty big speed bump.

  5. This is power and torque @ the flywheel correct? Not at the Tire? Follow this link to my 521 Dyno results listing that only got 1 comment since I posted it. Mine is at the tires, and the top green dyno results. http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-finally-the-dyno
  6. Welcome from Bakersfield Cali. I love to hear when more folks are throwing the 385 series engines into our big body Mustangs.
  7. Finally got my 73 Mach 1 with the fresh 521 to the Dyno today with my car group. After changing jets on the Dyno 3 times i gained 50 horses just sitting there. My build is for monstrous Torque, but due to my gearing and torque converter, plus stock valves and cast iron heads with beehive springs and roller tip rockers the 68 Camaro sporting the 502 still beat me but he has been fine tuning his setup for quite some time.

  9. So Rocket366, you didn't have to remove anything else from the dash to remove the A/C Heater box, that whole thing came out from under the dash? Or did you have to remove the whole dash itself to get it out?
  10. I purchased a Scat forged rotating assembly that came with Pistons, rods, and crank, and im running a Comp Cams roller retrofit fit system with roller lifters & rockers on beehive springs and Comp push rods and timing set. If you go to page 5 of my intro and build thread i have a almost finished parts list i used on the engine. http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-my-intro-and-build-thread
  11. Here is my 521 stroker based off a 429 block in my 73. I'm using the RPM Air Gap manifold with the Holley 4150 and K&N 3"x14" air cleaner that is around 1 1/4" drop base. I have about 1/2" clearance from the hood. I had bought a 1" TrickFlow spacer but was not able to use it.
  12. Was looking around the site and wasn't able to find any specifics regarding the 1973's steering box. I need to know what the pressure side inlet male hose size is. I am running a Saginaw pump and we Frankenstien'ed two different hoses together to work for now, but its not really working. So has anyone custom made or fit up their own fittings from the gear box to the Saginaw pump? Or made the pressure port a common male fitting? If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Thanks guys. This afternoon we have three tests we are going to run, since i have two 8580 Distributors, we are going to swap the internals to the one in the car after checking resistance to the MSD specs as well as on the box. We have a donor MSD box that we are going to try, and if all that don't work im just going to buy a Dura spark dizzy and ditch the MSD box altogether.
  14. Hey Qcode351mach, yes when the car is idling and its stumbling, when you pull the linkage to give it more gas the carb still spits fuel down the carbs throat just fine, and when you remove the bowl sites the fuel is right at the bottom of the holes. And also as stated no matter what there is always 7 psi on the system whether its stumbling and shutting off or dead. As far as where the fuel pump is, Pump is on passenger side, the 100 micron filter is right off the tank on the driver side using 1/2" tubing all the way up to the front. At the front of the car the 1/2" line runs up
