    Need some engine advise

    I think after everything I'll stick with the 351C. I plan on stroking it to 393. The 460 is an 1988 block which apparently is not too good to start a build with.

    Need some engine advise

    I have the opportunity to pickup a 460 for dirt cheap. My '71 Mach 1 is an M code 351C with CC heads. If you had a choice which would you build for the '71? Any one been in this dilemma? I would be mating it to a 4 speed.

    351C and misc. Parts for sale/trade

    I'm sorry. I didn't know. I will post prices when I get back on my computer. I did it this way cause I didn't want to go too high or undersell myself. But I will look up what each part is relatively going for and post the prices accordingly.

    9 inch housing help

    I was going to try to keep the staggered shocks so I'll probably try to have some fabbed up so I can keep them.  Do you got any photos of your set up? I would love to see some shots of how it's all mounted up.

    9 inch housing help

    That's some really good info. I have been reading about the 8.8 inch and the inherent problems with the C clips. There is a solution out there that gets rid of the C clips entirely. I know most of us build our cars for that 10 percent. But I'm trying to sway from that and build for the 90...

    9 inch housing help

    That's cool! I wouldn't mind switching to disc brakes. Especially if it's oe. Well some fabrication needs to be done to this one so maybe I'll sell it and get a 8.8 instead. I'm sure I won't have trouble selling the 9 inch. Starting from a blank slate would you rather get an original 9 inch or...

    9 inch housing help

    Good afternoon everyone. I got a '71 Mach 1 that the previous owners swapped an 8 inch in place of the original 9 inch (learned from help here and the Marti Report). Well I finally got a good deal on a 9 inch from someone local to me all he knew was that it was from a pickup $150 for the...

    How to Remove & Replace Black Fuse Block Only in 1971 Mustang, keeping existing Wiring Harness and existing Fuse Clips/Pins ?

    There's a bolt in the middle that you unscrew. It's spring loaded if I remember right. Once you unscrew it completely from the top there is a clip that disconnects the engine harness from the dash harness.
