    Hello. I currently have a 66 mustang with a 200ci and a c4 trans. I am thinking of getting a spare motor just because they are getting harder to find where I live. Also, in the event that I rebuild the motor, I will have a backup in case one of the blocks or heads has a crack. I am looking at...

    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.

    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...

    Hi all, I've been rebuilding my 67 mustang since February. Had a few issues with a 302 I have which was assembled and rebuilt poorly, leading to a case of piston slap/engine knock. I'm going to be replacing it completely, but am unsure which route to go. Option A: Crate 351W engine from ATK...

    Since my car is in pieces and I’m going to rebuild the 289, I need to get some ideas on how to “dress” the engine bay. I don’t want to end up with an abomination of blue, red, yellow, black and chrome - so pop your hoods! I’ll get it started ;)

    Video -Timing is set at 13 BTDC -MSD distributor is set up with 21 degree blue bushing and 2 blue light springs -Idle at 1200 - 1300 rpms -Vacuum at 18 - 19 Hg Does the idle seem a bit high? I can’t seem to dial it down (idle speed screw) without losing vacuum. See video for details.

    I put a 1987 Ford 302 truck (block) engine into my 1967 Mustang coupe. It's bored .30 over, roller 1.6 rockers, B303 cam, etc. I'm using the 1987 H.O 302 firing order. The problem is that I cant get the engine to run completely correct. I just replaced the spark plugs, but i'm only firing on 4...
