  1. So who does the best gauge pod restoration?? It is a standard tach dash and as usual the chrome rings around the gauges needs help. The guages themselves look ok. any suggestions?? thanks everyone.
  2. Am wanting to put an AOD behind my stroked 390. What AOD would you reccomend. Would like to stay away from electronics if possible. thanks
  3. Excellent point re. externally balanced 410. This could create a great expense trying to find correct acc. and bracketry. Would I have to look for 428 brackets ect. as this has non with the motor?? thanks Eric
  4. I went to look at the 390 its in an LTD everything looks correct for a land yaht. Was wondering if all the acc. brakets will work for the fastback?? Also while looking around the fellow said he had a torn down ford/mercury 410ci. Now this interested me as this is exactly what I wanted to do with the 390. From what i have learned a 410 is a factory stroked 390. Any insight as to the 410 motor? think I will try to get both engines. thanks Eric
  5. Well I am going this AM to look at the motor. It is in a 70 LTD according to the owner. Less than 100k on it and runs nice. I would have to agree, a sbf stroked would do just fine, however, i already have one of those. Thus i feel its time to grow up to a big block and try that out. I was unaware of the need to drill out for a 4bbl manifold. He said he has some "crazy looking heads that will fit this motor that he just wants to get rid of. He said they are dual drilled to accept both types of exhaust manifolds. I assume he means the horizontal and veritical bolt patterns but will find out more this AM. I will post casting numbers if I can find them on both sets of heads and the block. Where do I find casting numbers on the block?? A local guru also told me he has seen alot of service replacement blocks come from ford bored 60 over and has had no problem with them. I would think a sonic test would be in order if going that far, any opinions?? thanks Eric
  6. I have available to me a 1970 390 FE motor and was considering building to roughly 450hp for a 69 fastback. Any words of wisdom on this build? Is the 1970 390 a good base to start from? thanks
  7. Has anyone tried the ABS power gear box yet??
  8. I have available both a 1970 429 from a thunderbird and a 460 from a pickup. Would like to stroke a big block for a 69 mach I. Which one is the best choice for this build. thanks Eric

  10. I am wondering if a 460 from a 75 F250 is the same motor used in passenger cars as I have one available to me cheap that I would like to put in my 69 Mach I. thanks

  12. Maybe I was not clear in reguards to this topic. Everyone talks about rack and pinion steering but I have not seen any posts regarding a power gearbox similar to what GM used for thier power steering. Anyone??
  13. So is this possible or offered and how does it compare to R&P systems any insight and info appreciated. Thanks Eric
  14. I posted a Q a few days ago looking for someone that restores dash pods and gauges. Well I found a place called Autoinstruments.com that does all this. They rechrome and restore the pods and do instrument repairs as well Anyone have any dealings with these folks and how was your experience?? thanks
  15. who restores gauges and dash pods for 69 mach 1. thanks
  16. great info keep it coming please before I spend a bunch of $$$
  17. So what R&Ps have you tried? The good bad and the ugly of them all. I understand you loose turning radius with some, others are just knock offs. All opinions appreciated. Eric:helpsmilie:
