You all have nice engines and compartments, I feel kind of ashamed of mine. I cleaned the engine all up and painted it nice but I didn't do anything to the crusty engine compartment. This is right after I got it installed, I still did not have everything hooked up at the time.

 

It is a stock 5.8 out of a 97 F250, I just took off all the fuel injection stuff and put on a four barrel intake headers and front sump pan. It runs pretty good, but the trans now needs rebuilt.

Don't be ashamed, just keep it going one step at a time. Make improvements as you have time and budget. It takes time to turn an old car into your dream car. Alot of clean-up can be done with the engine in place but since the trans needs to come out it is sometimes easier to pull the engine and trans together.

man that is ridiculous! And people have the nerve to say the big Mustangs suck?

 

Please....

 

VERY IMPRESSIVE


How much was the March Serpentine System? What's the part#?

 

WOW, very impressed. I have A 351 cleveland also and want to stoke it to a 408 like yours. Where did you get the serpentine system at and how many horsepower are expecting from this motor.

Going to be upgrading soon to an Air Gap manifold. I rebuilt the engine a few years ago. It's running a H-278-2 Crane cam, headers and flat top pistons. Changed out the Autolite carb to an Edelbrock 750 using a Trans-dapt adapter for the 460. It runs surprisingly well, but I'm sure I will like it even more with the Air Gap once it's on it!

Work in progress on a few more upgrades and pulling those grungy valve covers for replacement.

 

If I can find it and figure out how I'll post a dyno video

 

Oh and the monte carlo bar is a modification of a 2011 Shelby GT 500 piece I picked up for under 20 bucks.

Let's wake the sleeping topic since I found none so ever big block engines, so let's start!

Basic Ford Racing 460 Cobra Jet crate. Disassembled by Rick Toombs TN, he balanced & blueprinted the engine and assembled it and shipped the crate to Finland. Std. bore & stroke 460 cid, CJ heads, A75 rods, victor Jr, BG 850dp, C460 Ford Racing camshaft, vindage tray etc. Behind the "thing" is a aluminium flywheel, McLeod Streettwin clutch and TKO600. Strong engine, like to torque and the hp. There is MPG heads export brace systemn installed but the bars were hanging on the wall... I also removed the 1qt expansion tank and placed a 1.3 gallon expansion tank to under the driver fender, it fits there like like a glove (I know it is big ex.tank), I am also using a engine oil cooler, it was usefull when the engine was breaking in.

 

Going to install these Blue Thunder puppies soon.

Overall you guys have very nice engine compartments!!! My Mach use to have a '72 HO Cleveland, it was nice engine to blast, it got street master, 750 holley dp, Crane commander cam, crane rockers etc. It surely was a nice Cleveland.

Dyno would not print out and had problems that day but that run was 298 at the rear wheels with 292 torque. It was an extremely hot day and we were chasing some tuning issues.

Well....my engine is dirty and sad from sitting for 12+ years so i won't bother with a picture for now.

 

I had a 351 Windsor built in 93/94 to replace the tired stock 302.

I haven't seen the specs for years and likely lost them in a move.

Here's what I remember......

 

Standard 351 Windsor machined .030 over

fully balanced

Basic crank/ rods

Hypereutectic pistons (about 10.4:1 compression)

standard iron Windsor heads (mild porting)

Manley valves/springs

Engle cam (only remember in. 496 ex. 520 at 1.6 lift)

Weiand stealth intake

Holly 4160 750 cfm with vacuum secondaries

Ford TFI distributor from a late Bronco (added later after numerous distributor failures)

Crane Hi-6 box

Crane coil

Taylor 10.6mm plug wires

 

Not too exciting but it was set up loose and pulls like hell to about 6800.:)
