    So, what do I have here in my new-to-me 68? The engine is original to the car by VIN. I assume the heads are as well - 289 stamped. I'm thinking a rail type rocker with a locking nut on a pressed in stud. As far as I can tell, a bone stock 289 except for an intake and Holley 4bbl. Is this...

    Hey guys! I recently bought my first car! A 1967 Mercury Cougar with a 289 v8! Anyway, I've been trying to tackle this running problem for a while now. So basically the car does not seem to like to start when its warm (yes I know this is a symptom of older vehicles but my car is inconsistent.)...

    What would be the best build for a 66 289. I got my hands on a 289 and want to see what can I do with it and add to it. It has already been rebuilt, but lacks parts such as an intake manifold, carb, etc. I want to be able to use the most I can from what the rebuilt block came with, but I am not...

    I kinda feel like an idiot asking this, but this is my first ford, and this seems really wrong. I have a stock 289 in a 68 mustang, stock cam, stock hydraulic lifters, and a set of flotek heads with valve guides (bad combination I know but I'm using whatever is laying around to try and get...

    so the carburetor sat through an engine fire for, at most, 2 minutes. I have a 1967 mustang, 289, with the 2100, stock AC, and Power steering. I have since rebuilt the carburetor with guidance from a grandfather. I can see fuel sprayed, when the gas pedal is pulled, I know my pump is set...

    Wondering if anyone has put a turbo on their 289 and how it went? I’m considering putting the turbo kit in the pictures on my rebuilt 289.

    Hello everyone, I am new to this forum, but glad to be here. I have recently been noticing that my oil pressure drops down very low when idling. But when moving at high speeds, particularly above 40mph the oil pressure gauge needle goes back to the middle. I am currently running Valvoline...

    I have a 67 mustang with a 289, c4 trans, and edelbrock 4 barrel carb. After driving car for as little as 15-20 minutes on a hot day it heats up to the h and I either turn it off or it will idle bad then die. It has an oversized radiator full to the top and I just changed the oil. I’m wondering...

    I'm working on starting my 1966 Mustang after it has been sitting for several years. It has a 289 v8 and automatic transmission. I've gotten a new starter, starter solenoid, voltage regulator, points, rotor, spark plug wires, and plugs. It cranks over just fine, however, I haven't been able to...

    I have a 1967 convertible with (as far as I can tell) the original 289/C4 combo. The paint is not correct to the vin and I have already upgraded to a 4bbl intake/carb, front coilovers and wilwood disc brakes. I am tossing around the Idea of a 351W/T5 swap. At this point, does it matter that I am...

    Hello, I have a 1965 mustang with a 5 bolt 289. I am currently trying to gather parts to swap out the c4 for a four speed toploader. I was wondering if I can buy any toploader (close or wide ratio) and have it bolt up to my 5 bolt manual transmission bell housing. I already have the bell housing...

    Hi folks, some much appreciated advice would be helpful. I’d like see ideas on restoring the bay, and what to change, what to keep etc. I personally don’t like the snorkel so the cover is going for a nice shiny new one, but open to ideas on the rest? Relatively new to all of this so all advice...

    Hello everyone, I just bought an 27 roadster that has a fresh 289 block C40E-6015C, casting date 4B3 (early Feb 1964), 302 heads, 289 internals, no miles on the rebuild. I've been told by a few people this is a not so common block that early Mustang builders would likely want. I'm considering...

    Greetings, I have a Holley EFI installed on my 65 Mustang 289 and have a "jerky" response when applying pressure to the gas pedal. By that I mean instant acceleration when applying light pressure in traffic. Its at the point, where I have to apply pedal pressure with my toes compared to entire...
