Made some good progress today.

Rebuilt the idler pulleys and refurbished the fan, motor mounts, alt bracket, trans mount and the exhaust manifold heat shield.

Also started cleaning up the engine compartment but will be focusing on that tomorrow as I’m pretty much done with the engine parts.

Engine will go on the Dyno next week and when I get it back I’ll be sending out the valve covers and distributor to get restored.

Engines hitting the dyno next week for break in and then some power runs. We are going to run a set of headers and a carb instead of EFI and stock manifolds how I’d run it. I’m not to concerned with the numbers going on the dyno for break-in.

Valve covers and distributor will be removed and restored after dyno time.

Some original parts from my engine rebuild. I didn’t know that Ford originally used nylon timing chain gears in these engines! Very interesting for sure!

It was on already but the front says B2. Does that help?
I had front and back reversed. Yes it does help. It confirms I have a 429 TJ/CJ/SCJ damper on the shelf. Now the question is why do I have it and what to do with it (I'm trying to de-clutter my garage). Thanks for responding. Chuck

Bone stock rebuild of my 71 429 CJ bored .30 over. Just broke engine in for a while and did one power run for fun. Ran on the Dyno with a carb but will have SNiper EFI when installed in the car so it should t be as rich on the top end. I’m happy with the numbers!

Making some progress. Need to re-route spark plug wires correctly and move the drivers side lift hook to the proper location.
