    headers???

    Hi Mdan575, Thanks for that. Have you got a picture of the headers where they cross the Z-bar and power steering gearbox? I think I have the smaller bell housing (157 tooth flywheel) so I shouldn't have the clearance problem with it. Were the Procomp headers similar to any other brand? I typed...

    headers???

    What was the outcome of this? I have the same problem. Nothing seems to fit a 302 in a '73 with a manual transmission past the clutch linkage. I wrote Holley/Hooker and ask their technical dept. what I should use and I was told that they have nothing that will fit my car! :( It looks like the...

    Headers for 72 with stock manual trans

    Thanks Jeff73Mach1, When you say Hooker Comps, do you mean #6921HKR? They say they only fit 2V 351C. I have Edelbrock heads on my 302. Maybe I would be better with a set of shorties?

    Headers for 72 with stock manual trans

    I just ran into the same problem. I had a set of Hedman 88300 headers that came with a '69 with 302 automatic. I rebuilt the 302 and have installed it in my '73 with 3 speed toploader. I downloaded the instruction sheet from Hedman and saw a little note up at the top (will not fit 1971-1973...

    71/72 engine mounts bracket vs 73

    Hi, I'm removing a 250 I6 from my '73 Fastback and installing a '69 rebuilt, 302. I have to replace both the frame mounts and the motor mounts, anyway. The 71-72 will work? I don't want to lay out the extra cash to get the scarce '73 mounts if I don't need to and obviously I don't care about...

    Edelbrock performer vs RPM air gap

    Thanks again for all your input. I ended up going with what I originally planned and stuck with the Performer 2121 to match my cam.

    Edelbrock performer vs RPM air gap

    Ok great. Thanks guys for all your opinions. Sounds like either one would fit my application. I'll let you know what I decide on. All Edelbrock intakes are 10% off this week at my local performance shop. Saves a bit of cash anyway.

    Edelbrock performer vs RPM air gap

    That's what I was worried about. I know they aren't a perfect match. I want a street engine, but with some punch when I want to get the heart rate up a bit. The cam is a bit more aggressive than a stock cam...as long as it doesn't bog out at lower RPM when I'm bootin' around town. Always driven...

    Edelbrock performer vs RPM air gap

    Hmm.... I have the ram air hood but none of the parts of the plenum. I was thinking of trying to gather all the spare parts and making it functional but I would probably need a stock carb on it too. Not too worried about that right now. I just feel like if I've put all the time and money into...

    The Rickster - a 73 Mach 1 work in progress

    Good luck, Brother. I had a '69 in about the same shape. The more I stripped her down, the more rust I found. I didn't have the stick-to-it-iveness. Hats off to you. I really hope you can bring her back! I'll be following your progress.

    Edelbrock performer vs RPM air gap

    I'm rebuilding a 302 cid out a 1969 Mustang Pony and I'm going to put it in my '73 Sportroof. I put a mild Edelbrock cam (2122) in it and the E-Street heads and I was going to put a Performer intake on it until I started looking at the air gap. I saw a video on u-tube comparing the two intakes...

    73 Mustang Enthusiast

    I'd like to see pictures of the one with the 400 but I'd like to hear more about your current project, too! Post some pics of both when you get time. Cheers!

    Great car! Great to have another '73 to watch the progress of. Good choice ditching the hood scoop.

    Re-introduction

    I'd like to see some pics too. I start and stop on mine too. Mostly because of money. Took me 2 years to save up the cash for new cylinder heads for the engine I'm rebuilding for it. Now I'm on a roll and just want to get the new engine stuffed in the front of it. Keep the momentum rolling!

    Powerfire Distributor

    That is a low price. I checked into a rebuilt because I was just going to run a stock with the Ignitor III in it. The rebuilt was that much, plus the Pertronix module. Our prices are more up here in Canada, but that's crazy low if they work well. I installed a Pertronix II under the I6 cap on...

    Powerfire Distributor

    New Pertronix ignitor III billet distributor on order. Should be here in a couple of weeks. Finally getting back at my rebuild. Took me a while to get enough scratch together for the new heads. Now it's coming together.

    Powerfire Distributor

    HEI = high energy ignition, which is what I want for my Ford to give my spark plugs some snap, crackle and pop! I know GM introduced it, but we Ford boys can use it too!

    Powerfire Distributor

    Nice. I'll let you know what I decide when the time comes. Also looking at the new E-Street heads. Just don't have the change right now. After buying the car and getting it on the road and paying for the machining to the 302 and parts for the bottom end it might have to wait. Trying to gather...

    Powerfire Distributor

    Hi Guys, I was wondering if anyone has installed a Powerfire distributor by Professional Products. The make them for 351 and 302 and look great. They have an external knob so you can advance or retard the timing on the fly. They look good and I'm thinking of installing one on my 302 while I'm...

    Nice to find a site for 71-73

    Dude, Hat's off to you and your wife for the great job you're doing on that car. I went through your web site and checked out your pictures. What a labour of love. You guys are doing a great job. I wish I could get my wife into helping me. That's great. I love the paint that you chose too...
