Big steps, congratulations on getting them done...

I am currently living so far from my projects, that I don't know now if they will ever get done.

I took a weeks vacation time last year to try and finish the engine in my 69 Cougar, and, well, failed. I out smarted my self by getting the correct length, but wrong diameter push rods for the engine. By the time the overnight freight arrived, it was too late, and I had to leave.

I was able to get some header mufflers installed on my 71 Mustang, but even that one didn't get started, and it is a running engine!

Congrats on the progress. Those are some big numbers. What are the particulars on the engine? Chuck

I'd post rebuild/machining pics but I can't seem to figure out a way to upload a "group of pics" at one time here or on my gallery/garage. Seems you have to do it one at a time...

John, how do you post a video?

I may have just figured it out...this was her first start up, on the dyno rack. Notice no smoke at the valve cover fitting...good sign!

Looks awesome!

EBSTANG,

 

Goose Bumps! The Sanden A/C sure look really good with the 351C engine.

SWEET!!! ::thumb::::thumb::::thumb::

 

Looks awesome... sounds awesome... which means, it IS awesome! :bravo:

 

Speaking of Sanden A/C - I installed a Classic Auto Air system, and it did not come with any kind of an idler pulley or anything. Can you explain to me how your system is set up?

 

I see an idler pulley, in addition to the separate power steering belt/pulleys, and I imagine the alternator is on its own belt as normal.

 

I have a 3-groove crank pulley as well... just no idler set-up. I'm not totally thrilled with having to use the power steering belt to run the A/C compressor as well (CAA's suggestion), but I will if I have to. If I can find some kind of workable idler pulley, I'll be happy to clean up the 3-groove crank pulley, swap it out, and go from there.

 

Thanks in advance!

Eric

E,

Thanks for the compliments!

No idler pulley, stock 2-groove crank pulley...

Picture's worth a thousand words!

Yes, it is (worth 1000 words, that is). ::thumb::

 

Thanks for the pic - I was wondering if you'd done that, or had an original A/C car.

 

That was the 'other' solution I'd considered, BTW.

 

I just played the video again at home... and cranked it up. Damn, that thing sounds stout! Well done, Sir! :bravo:
