    Hello from Long Island - 73 Mach1 351C

    Watch a couple of youtube videos on the oiling issues. I am in a rebuild right now and my mechanic has added restrictions to prioritize main bearing lubrication. I have heard of a simple hose being run from front to back that has also mitigated most of the issue to prioritize. It's a deep...

    '71 with 408W CDAN4 EEC-V retrofit

    Great thread, Kudos! I have a '73 vert with a 351C that I am restoring and switching over to SEFI. I have found Decipha to be an excellent source of information (like 95% of what I now know). I have never completed an EFI conversion before so I am after picking up everything needed. I was happy...

    Do you still have the frame of the donor car? Is it a convertible? I am looking for the small trunk pan to back seat transition piece that covers the shock mounts. It has the bracket for the convertible top pump on it.

    4r70w current day swap info

    I am doing the same thing. The crossmember is harder to find that the Holy Grail. What are you using for a shifter?
