I wouldn't expect much, do you have 2 bolt motor mount pads or 4? Can you see any numbers or letter on the crank? Is there any kind of weight on the flex plate? Casting numbers on the heads or block?
I do a ton of FE Ford, sounds like you have the original 390, except for the measuring of the cylinders that sound like 428, but a tape measure between 4.05 and 4.125 is tough to do, keep the info coming
The motor is stuck, I have been working on trying to free it, I removed the head on the drivers side, there is one piston on the down stroke, Measured from the top of the piston to the top of the cylinder, it measured 3 3/4, there is a piston almost at the top, it is a 1/4 from the top, the piston has a notch on the top edge.
I think you are over-exploring this engine, FEs generally use an earlier main cap with the block, no big deal. It's just a nice early block. Is there something you are trying to accomplish with all the numbers? This is just a normal-normal early engine, they are decent for cores, but nothing overly special. Last set of C1AE-A heads I paid 20 bucks each for, last early block I took for free because nobody wants 2 bolt motor mount blocks. If you have a use, great core assuming it isn't bored to death, but nothing special
I have an 88 Tbird that hesitates like it's starving for fuel and stalls at idle until after about five minutes of driving. The service engine light stays on about five minutes or less at each start up but the car runs ok. I don't know how long the ol lady let it sit before I bought...
I have an 88tbird 5.0 that runs and drives great but shuts off at about 98mph. I need to get rid of the governor. Could I use an 86-87 mustang GT ECM, though they are different firing orders, or just get the car reprogrammed?
I know someone parting out what he thinks is a 64 but it has a 2 bbl,I do not ever remember a 60s having a 2 bbl and it also has the 65/66 style valve covers. I have not had the time to check any casting numbers but something tells me it does not have the original engine.
I'm looking for some information from anyone who has ever converted from a manual window and lock to a PW/PL system in a 77-79 car.
My first car was a 77 T-Bird with PW & PL and I now have a 77 Ranchero with the worst designed all manual door panels on the planet. I'd like to go...
Alright boys I'm finally posting here for help. Time to lay it all out for you.:frown2:
I've owned a '78 XR-7 for about 6 years. 65k all original miles, 351w, FMX trans. Everything is stock except for an air cleaner upgrade, a new radiator, the plugs/wire kit I put on, a distributor, and an OEM...
