  1. Does anyone know where I can buy these radiator brackets that hold top of radiator together? I have 71 Mustang Mach 1. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Ok everyone sorry for the long delay in the response. I ended up looking at the #s on the block and they do not match the Vin #. Attached is a picture of my car 1971 Mustang Mach 1, if you zoom in on the picture you can see the Cobra Jet letting on side of hood, so that’s what got the dots all connecting that it did come with car but apparently not. I’m sorry if I didn’t introduce myself but I’m a 35 year old and live in Southeastern South Dakota and have had this car since 2004. I got tranny rebuilt about 4 years ago and lucky if it’s got 500 miles on since then. The motor just got done being rebuilt as a knocking sound all of a sudden started and lost oil pressure. Luckily it was just a broken push rod and landed on the pan under intake so didn’t ruin anything. Ended up finding out it’s a 4V block with 4V heads and rebuilt with roller cam, roller lifters, forged pistons....going to be excited to fire it up here this week or next. Again sorry for not introducing myself, please let me know if you would like any other info. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Ok I was just looking to put these on to show off motor little bit. I will check #s, will be interesting because the hood has Cobra Jet decal on it also. So I’m really confused now. Thought the dots were starting to connect maybe not Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I have the M code and see pic below it shows it came out in late 71? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I brought my 351 Cleveland motor out of my 1971 Mustang Mach 1 to machine shop over the winter. After tearing apart and looking at numbers it ends up being a 351 Cleveland Cobra Jet! In looking into it more it looks to be the original motor that came with this mustang. First of all I’m looking for set of Cobra Jet Valve Covers like the picture attached, I can’t seem to find them anywhere to order? Anyone have any idea on where to get similar ones? Also anyone have any insight on how to verify 100% that this is original motor with this car. In my research very few Mach 1 came with 351 CJ 4V. Thanks for any help.

  6. Anyone ever had any luck with any of the brush on products? I'm in SD and have limited nice days left to paint outside and don't have proper ventilation inside. I've read couple post about using brake caliper brush on paint and won't see brush marks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I am going to be soon painting the engine compartment of my 1971 Mustang Mach 1. I am wanting to make sure I paint it the correct color of black. I am finding semi gloss black is this correct? And if so do you have the paint code for this? Also is engine compartment color same as lower bumpers and cowls? Firewall? Chassis? Thanks for any help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Could anyone please tell me some websites for ordering 1971 Mustang Mach 1 parts? I am currently rebuilding motor and will be painting the body in near future and would like to know best places/prices to get from. Thanks for the suggestions! Dan Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I need to currently rebuild my 351C. An offer came across the table to possibly buy a 429 that's already completed. Is this possible, lot of things I need to change to fit? So far I am reading that motor mounts, some of the lines won't line up? Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hello: I own a 71 Mustang Mach 1, just recently lost oil pressure and is knocking. Local mechanic said more than likely bearing is shot on crank shaft. I am going to pull out and completely rebuild it. I would like people opinions on what to do/not to do to motor. I plan on using the motor for street driving, probably no drag racing but will get on it here and there. Want it to sound like a mean motor with a good sounding cam but also don't want a motor this will over heat around town. What's the advantage of roller cams verses mechanical? I plan on buying all the kits through local machine shop that is very knowledgable on the motors but just wanted any extra feedback from people that have been through it and wished they would of done something different. Thanks for any advice! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I am going to be rebuilding my C6 transmission in my 1971 Mustang Mach 1 that has a 351 Cleveland. What are everyone's thoughts of putting a stall in it instead of the torque converter? I think older cars with stalls sound so much better. I only use the car to cruise around in no drag racing. Also while I have the tranny apart does anyone recommend replacing anything else? Thanks for the advice!
  12. I am going to get my transmission rebuilt on my 1971 Mustang Mach 1 that has a 351 Cleveland with C6 transmission. Would any of you recommend putting a stall in this or leave torque converter in? I have an older pickup that was my high school car and the stall made it sound even better. The car is mainly used just to cruise around no drag racing. Any other recommendations on replacing anything else while I have this tore apart? Thanks for the advice!
  13. Thanks everyone for the advice couple problems I ended up finding out. I have 4v exhaust manifolds and nobody at parts stores seems to know the difference so they gave me 2v gaskets. I ended up having to order 4v in from summit, will be here in a few days. I also didn't clean the old gasket off well enough and there was 1 spot with old gasket which would of also caused it to leak. Thanks again for the advice!
  14. I appreciate all the advice the longer bolt did work:) then when I went to start it. It still has a exhaust manifold leaks double checked all the bolts and they are tight. Anyone else confirm that u for sure don't need exhaust manifold gaskets on these? I have heard of such a thing. Thanks again for all the help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Hello everyone this is 1st time I have been on here and posted something. I hope to find this very useful and helpful for me. I have a 71 Mustang Mach 1 with 351 Cleveland, last weekend I went to replace a exhaust manifold gasket with thought it would be a easy fix but turned into a 2.5 hour project(hard to get wrenches in right spot). My problem is one of my exhaust manifold bolts are stripped into the head? I am thinking this is why the exhaust manifold gasket blew out in 1st place. Any suggestions on how to fix? Longer bolt maybe work? Thanks for any help!
