351w

  1. Vintage Mustang Forum
    Hi everyone, Just purchased a 1970 351W Mach 1. Been a long time away from classics but glad to be back. My question is around seeing the timing enough to tell where it's at. The visibility is very poor and I'm just wondering if this is a common issue or if there were modifications done to...

    Just bought: Borgeson Power Steering Upgrade Kit 289/302/351W 1968-1969 It doesn't fit with the old headers I have. Has anyone here used this power steering box before? What did you do for exhaust on your 351w?

    Hi. I was having some weird timing issues with my 351w with a b303 cam in it. I pulled the cap off the distributor and there was a big chunk of magnet flying around, the rotor wiggles, and the vacuum advance doesn't do anything. The trouble is as it is a roller cam it needs a steel gear (I...

    Hi all, I gotmy new 351w and rebuilt c4 ready. I installed both accidentally without puttingthe headers on first. Lifted the engine up and jacked the car a bit and there is no way that these headers (D623) are even remotely going to fit. I spent hours trying.I sincerely don’t see how they can...

    First let me start by prefacing I don’t want to go manual, so that takes options off the table. I have a 351w I just got ready for my 67 Stang ,. I also have a case filled C4 (72-74) I was planning on rebuilding for it. When I got my engine back I started getting many opinions on whether the C4...

    Hello to all. My dad has a 1970 Mach 1 (a few actually) but one is painted raven black with a red interior. He is about to start restoring it and wants to paint it grabber blue and change the seats to black ones. My question is how rare (or lack there of) is this color combination? I’ve tried...

    I just built a 408 stroker and my oil pressure flutters very quickly once it warms up. It goes from 38-44 very quickly. When cold it stays at 65. I’ve never had a fluttering problem before and was woundering what it could be or if it’s a concern. When cruising 1500-2000rpms oil pressure stays at...

    I'm replacing the stock 2bbl carb and manifold with a Sniper 4v EFI and aluminum manifold on the 351w motor in my '69 Mach1. The problem I'm having is hood clearance. The motor is stock other than a small Comp Cam. I got the Sniper and a Weiand Stealth manifold from Summit and before I even got...

    Hello VMF experts, I am about to embark on some lovely cowl repair and will be pulling the original C-Code 289. I have a F4TE 351w disassembled sitting on the stand waiting for the money to build a 408 stroker properly. I am planning on swapping the intake as I have a Holley sniper set ready to...
