Re: dropping a new 408 cleveland in 68 ranch
Beautiful truck! Knowing as much as you must, maybe you will answer a question: my thread is right below yours! Just picked up a nice '72, with 2bbl. Cleveland, not sure yet about trans, small, deep square oil pan all I could see in the parking lot, looks like FX, or FMX. Not important.
What basics should I know before considering putting my last Motorsports 5.0L HO eng. in this Ranchero? Undecided yet on trans., whether late electronic or AOD, but WILL have O/D.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance! imps
BTW: How do you keep enough traction on yer rears? Extra weight? And, do you use 9"? Spool? 4-pinion diffs. really scarce, I suppose.
