Hi everyone, I've had some great advice given on this forum so I thought I'd formally introduce myself and show some pics of the rides...I've owned nothing but Fords for a while and the 66 I have now is one of my dream cars and my first classic. Before this I had a 2001 Turbo GT that put down 585 rwhp/695 rw tq, and a 97 Cobra that was blown and put down 509 rwhp/499 rwtq...Looking forward to learning a lot about these sexy machines and meeting some cool people!!!



Here's the 66 with the old 289 before the crank went.





The new roller 302

That's my buddy's car there (the camaro). He is building a 70's style street machine with it. Big 427 with 12:1 compression. It's gonna be nasty, he runs a restoration shop though which has helped me greatly in my rebuild...


BTW anyone now why the bolts for the pressure plate (into flywheel) in an 88 302 HO are different than those in a 66 289??? I tried to reuse my bolts and they started crossthreading!
