  8. What size fuel tank do you have & what year filler neck do you have?. Is it possible you have the larger tank from a 1970 Mustang & the filler neck from the 69?.
  9. Today I installed the intake manifold, distributor, water pump, & the dip stick tube.
  10. Thanks for all the info everyone, I installed the manifold today using the rubber end seals. I took 2 old intake bolts & cut the heads off & screwed them a few turns into the heads r/s rear & l/s front to locate the intake easier.

  13. Tomorrow I will be installing the Edelbrock Performer RPM intake on my 1987 5.0 engine, the Edelbrock paper work I printed on line says not to use the cork or rubber end seals to just use a 1/4" bead of RTV silicone sealer instead. The last aluminum intake I installed I used the cork end seals with out any problem, the gasket set I have has the rubber end seals. What does everyone think?. Here is the link to the install instructions. https://www.jegs.com/i/Edelbrock/350/7121/10002/-1
