Re: "Mirror 105 FE"

I have a 1974 FE engine for sale. where would the best place to get the value put into it? It has been rebuilt and bored to a 390 and has less than 6000 miles on it- currently it is in a 1970 F-250 Highboy 4x4. Please and thank you.

Didnt know about the possible larger Dizzy hole... will have to measure it out... Where do you get the "spacer" and what might it be called?

$550 bucks to $1200 if it's truly a nice runner.

Don't confuse a FT engine with a Ford pickup truck engine.

mirror 105 does not mean that it's an FT. Just measure the crank and find out which it is.
Also that block on EBay seems like alot, but it's got a warranty, and a good bit of money spent on it already. (ie, Threaded oil galley's, baked, cleaned, sonic tested, etc). Plus it's standard bore, so would probably clean up at 30over.

best of luck,
Drew

Here's one place I found the distributor bushing. dscmotorsports.com

DSC Motorsports - Part Details

It's available elsewhere as well. I think even from Ford Motorsports.

Re: "Mirror 105 FE"

Agreed Frdnut,
I think the easiest thing to do though is just use the truck pulley setup. The crank pulley has 4 bolts on the FT instead of the FE's 3 bolt setup. I got mine already as an assembled and running unit, I decided to pull it down and go through it simply so I would know what was inside. If I have time I may do a mild port on the heads while down. I also have to check the valve clearances and flycut the pistons if necessary as I am using a much larger cam.

Yes, but that wasn't the point....I could have said it better
Given the choice ( it's not like you're going to get many used standard bore 390's ) the strength of the block is the advantage.

When the racing world was low on 410 blocks and didn't want to use over-bored car 390's, this was what they used...(makes a great 406ci too)

I see what you mean about the distributor Plovett. I will need to check the pilot hole in the block to see what I can find out.

Thanks again.

I think the FT cranks had larger snounts so it would have to be turned to use your regular car front pulleys...Probably not worth the hassle unless its an all out race motor..

Re: "Mirror 105 FE"

This may help - FT vs FE. If in-fact it is a 391 rather than a 390, you may have to make some decisions. And, yes, the FT distributor is different.
