I pulled my motor and tranny last night for a rebuild and discovered that my Clutch Equalizer Pivot Bracket was cracked with signs of previous brazing. Just wondering if anyone has ever found any NOS or REPOP... I can't find anything for a 429... Drake make one for 351s... But it appears there's nothing out there for a 71 429... any suggestions?

A lot of 429s went in the Mercury Marquis...that community might have something ...you know .. the car that rides like a water-bed and steers like the moon.   :classic_tongue:

Thanks for the suggestion - after poking around apparently bracket is a unique part to 429 mustangs and cougars :( It's a real drag... I found one guy in NY that fabs them, but his listing is for a whole assembly and wants 800 USD for it. I have reached out to see if he'll sell just the engine side bracket alone, but I'm not holding out too much hope.

Shoot me a PM, if you send me the bracket, I can reproduce it.

The 429 engine side brackets are hard to find!

I've been trying to locate one to use as a pattern for a while also.

@Hemilkiller: if you do get one to use as a pattern, build an extra and I'll buy it from you...

I also had to fabricate one for my conversion. I used parts from the original 351C one and made a new mount from 3/16" plate and worked well.

Thanks, Jay
