    Looking for suggestions on upgrades please. (and apologies - i know this question will have been asked several times in similar fashion) I have a fairly stock 289, which is still getting hot on the passenger side. I've got the citric acid flush left to try, but pretty sure i've narrowed it down...

    I’m doing a budget build for a 1963 Ford falcon in search of some basic parts for my 289/C4 will be installed in a few weeks. Pulleys, different brackets, torque converter, driveshaft, etc. Also was wondering what cars I should keep an eye on because ford threw the 289/C4 in a good amount of...

    Hey everyone, first timer here. I was working on my carb and noticed I have two fuel filters. One is attached to the carb (pretty sure it's supposed to be there) and one is inline from the fuel pump to the filter on the carb. Could this be causing fuel starvation? I noticed I need to adjust to...

    Guys, Over the last year I've finally decided to get my 65 Mustang back on the road. My foundation, 5.0 HO from 94 GT Mustang into my 65 mustang. The mustang was an inline 6 with 5 lug conversion and 8 inch rear end pre done years back. The 5.0 motor was converted to carb, edelbrock 289...

    Have a mainly stock 1967 coupe sports sprint. 289 motor, nothing real special. I have recently learned quicker acceleration at the cost of gas milage and top power when dealing with the 3rd member I plan on switching mije out for a ratio of 3.25:1 because milage is a priority and I'd rather...

    So I’ve recently gotten into learning about classic mustangs, as it’s my dream to restore one, and I want to get clarification on an engine I see for sale. As the title suggests, it’s a 302 F-code. I did some searching and found that that specific engine is what was put into the econolines in...

    Does anyone know how to get the push rod out of the disc brake master cylinder? I forgot to buy one when I bought my new one and I hate to wait a week for it to come in the mail

    Hello, I am looking for the vacuum fitting that goes on the intake manifold with inverted flare for the automatic transmission and an inverted flare for the power brake booster. 260v8 or 289v8.

    I have an early (Jan 10,1963) 289, 5 bolt bellhousing and matching 4 speed narrow bolt pattern toploader. According to the casting numbers it's a 289 2-bolt main Hi-Po. It has a two barrel manifold, so I don't know how that corresponds to the "Hi-Po". I've read that 289s made in Mexico at the...

    Hello, Apologies as i'm not overly familiar with tuning petrol engines, but i've been having some issues - mostly noticed with the engine getting a bit on the hot side. It's a 66, with 289 engine. C4 g'box. Engine used to get too hot, but over the summer i did a top end rebuild - changed cam...

    Hey, Just finished putting a T5 transmission into my 1965 mustang and wanted to do a write-up about it. Reason being, I’m grateful for all the info I’ve found on various threads, however, I still had some things I had to figure out that weren’t out there. Also there wasn’t one with a full...

    Rebuilding the 2100 carburetor on my 65 289. The kit came with two identical looking (same hole pattern) base gaskets. Am I supposed to use both? Here's a picture showing something similar: Motorcraft 2100 Carburetor Repair Kit K4008

    Hi all, Wondering if anyone can tell me (or decipher) what this code means? Vehicle: 1965 Ford Mustang Coupe 289 Thanks! Jordan
  14. Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...

    Here is the Back Story I just bought a 66 Coupe! Test drove it, bought it, parked it. The next day I was stoked to take the girlfriend the first joyride aaannndd 4 blocks down it completely died. It was her first experience ever pushing a car and she was not happy=.😂 With the help of a buddy...

    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.
