Big steps, congratulations on getting them done...

I am currently living so far from my projects, that I don't know now if they will ever get done.

I took a weeks vacation time last year to try and finish the engine in my 69 Cougar, and, well, failed. I out smarted my self by getting the correct length, but wrong diameter push rods for the engine. By the time the overnight freight arrived, it was too late, and I had to leave.

I was able to get some header mufflers installed on my 71 Mustang, but even that one didn't get started, and it is a running engine!

Congrats on the progress. Those are some big numbers. What are the particulars on the engine? Chuck

I'd post rebuild/machining pics but I can't seem to figure out a way to upload a "group of pics" at one time here or on my gallery/garage. Seems you have to do it one at a time...



Nice!!! Include video when you start up.
John, how do you post a video?

rears don't match the fronts anyway so I plan on "using them up" this summer (if it ever gets done! :shootself: ) and put new one on in the fall...::thumb::



Looks awesome!
thanks Mike!

SWEET!!! ::thumb::::thumb::::thumb::

Looks awesome... sounds awesome... which means, it IS awesome! :bravo:

Speaking of Sanden A/C - I installed a Classic Auto Air system, and it did not come with any kind of an idler pulley or anything. Can you explain to me how your system is set up?

I see an idler pulley, in addition to the separate power steering belt/pulleys, and I imagine the alternator is on its own belt as normal.

I have a 3-groove crank pulley as well... just no idler set-up. I'm not totally thrilled with having to use the power steering belt to run the A/C compressor as well (CAA's suggestion), but I will if I have to. If I can find some kind of workable idler pulley, I'll be happy to clean up the 3-groove crank pulley, swap it out, and go from there.

Thanks in advance!

E,

Thanks for the compliments!

No idler pulley, stock 2-groove crank pulley...

Picture's worth a thousand words!
