  1. 1963 Mercury Meteor Resurrection

    Makin' Progress
    Looks like a great starting point. Factory 4 speed? Mine came with a 170 and a 2-speed auto. I wouldn't have swapped out my drivetrain if it started life like yours. Looks like you got a great deal. Congrats

    Update on the 4R70W with the GT40P replacing the 2speed and 170... I now have my exhaust partially hooked up. I am running 1999 Chevy Tahoe exhaust with cats and the Mountaineer O2 sensors. Still need to tie in to a 2 into 1 collector and then a 2.5 or 3 inch tailpipe and muffler. Wow - it...

    From what I have read, the go to swap is the Granada 5 lug spindles, discs and rotors. Not so easy to find anymore but you might get lucky.

    With 120 compression and the fact that you changed the distributor and have spark, I would not do a major teardown until I confirmed the problem. If I read correctly, you suspected the distributor was bad so you changed it and you still have spark and compression but won't run. I have put...

    The feeder can was like $25 or so on eBay. This is how I modified it and mounted it behind the left headlight.

    Hello everyone, What can I say? I like Ford and especially Mercury cars. I wasn't born in a Ford but Mom tells me I spent my first birthday in a 1947 Tudor on moving day. Also been working on Fords since age 5 if you count shining a droplight in the wrong directions "helping" Dad and...

    Looks like the C4 puts first gear lower and second becomes your passing gear. I know my 170 had its tongue hanging out if forced into kickdown on that 2 speed. 302 V8 dropping into second on a C4 would be a great improvement. Top gear is still 1.0 so the 3.00 stock diff (guessing yours is...

    I am finishing up a swap from the 170 and 2 speed to a GT40P and 4R70W from a 1997 Mountaineer. Not a huge horsepower motor but the increase in torque and the lower first gear make it roast tires a little too easily through the open diff. Mine is a 3.0 open and it should be strong enough for...
