Re: Project "GuldenRod" 72 Gran Torino Wagon
also have Ford Motorsport Aluminum black wrinkle valve covers to install but i'm giving them a fresh coat of wrinkle paint as they are off my other 351C that I have had since 1988.
I had issues with the accelerator pump and is now leaking and squirting fuel onto the intake instead of inside the carb
Instead of rebuilding the Motorcraft 1.21 2 barrel i'm gonna get intake gasket and swap on the Edelbrock Performer 4 barrel aluminum intake and Carter AFB 600 cfm 4bbl carb from my other 351C
have a set of 8mm wires off the other motor and a glass fuel filter plus chrome oil dipstick which it will get.
eventually when I can afford to freshen up the other engine and have the pedestal mount heads milled for studs to put on roller rockers and get a different milder cam as this will be street driven and a tow vehicle for the 72 Sport so need it more fuel friendly so no big race cam like it has now. After that motor is ready I will do a swap and add headers,
Car has dual exhaust now but it has the stock manifolds.
I want to change the mufflers and thinking maybe Magnaflow's
any thoughts on those mufflers??
