Congrats David



Got the truck semi-running. Six, count 'em folks, six pushrods were at the less than optimum angle to properly open the valves successfully....




The 2V intake manifold weighs approx 486.6 lbs. Fukr was heavy and I needed a sledge hammer to bust the seal loose to get it off the engine.


Suprisingly for as old as it is and as much carnage there was, driving it with the bent pushrods... it's pretty dang clean.






To reach anything you had to 'assume the position'....


Problems outstanding.....
throttle bracket jesus-clips are missing and the throttle doesn't want to shut completely.. hands a little open
The dist is a tooth retarded... so gotta fix that.
#5 cyl intake valve sticks. It was bad so that it would not close, but now it s l o w l y closes. So so that it's pushed open before it can completely close. Bang on it with a shop hammer and it'll close. With luck some ATV down the carb will free it up. I hope. Otherwise I'll have to take all the crap off of it again to do a valve job.


say what you want about "old technology" but you know what, it ran on 4 cylinders and had engine damage and will run like a champ here shortly and cost 100 bux to fix. Can't say with what happened here that anyone of our "new technology" motors would have survived. Hell ping the motor a little bit and the dam thing goes boom Sure things a dirty and a little difficult to get to, but I love working on old cars.

I love the old stuff. Screw all the computerized junk, I wanna be able to fix it if it breaks down on the road. Working in engine bays where I can actually get to (and see) stuff. The old cars just sound different too!

Ya that's what I said, I mean what are the odds of that I didn't plan it. I notices later when I loaded the images.

Ray I was here just to pay respects to the M/W in the service, I was going to take the ROUSH but I woke up to late. Lots of cool speeches a fly by and the Terminator showed up! At one point Arnold walked so close to me we almost had a man boob collision! On the Mustang front I cleaned my engine bay today.

Well, I'm paying KBB trade in value price.
It also still has 2 months left on the 3/36 warranty (plus the 2 years powertrain left).
