Well I finally had a chance to get the car up to my buddies shop before the snow hit I dropped it off and I day later he had the whole engine tore down to the block and getting it prepped for the new parts ! One of the things I wanted to know if it was the original engine or not ? because when I bought the car the owner said it was replaced with a new Jaspar engine that it only had 44k on it? Well It couldn't be proven until today .We had our doubts but when he got down to the pistons he noticed some number that seemed different and turns out that this is not the original engine just like the lady said turns out to be a 308 bored 40 over ! So i'm a happy camper Here's some pics of what we got done so far....

Ok Today we are going to clean up the firewalls/strut towers with some por15 and spray them up with a little red paint to clean up some surface rust that hasn't been touched in 20 years ..I'm getting ready to send out my 19lb injectors that were on the car to get cleaned and serviced also decided to get a smaller crank pulley for the car to add some extra horse power and decided to remove the air silencer/smog pump and going to advance the timing ...... We'll see what kind of horse power this engine brings!

Here's mod list.........

Gt 40 heads (F3ZE) rebuilt
original 93 cobra intakes-powder coated
1.7 crane rockers new
255 walbro fuel pump new
accufab 70mm tb
75mm 19lbs maf new
bbk ceramic shorty headers new
95 amp alt
169 Piece Polished Grade 8 Stainless Steel ARP bolt kit
Ford motorcraft waterpump new
h-pipe high flow cats
Aluminum drive shaft
Aluminum two core radiator new
93 cobra valve covers-powder coated
felpro gaskets
stock Gt cam & 19lb injectors

port the heads while you have the chance.

about sending out your old injectors... with a cobra intake, and Gt40 heads.... there was a reason the 93 cobras came with 24lb injectors instead of 19's...

Heads are done no port work on them...Those 19lb injector are good up to around 300 hp or so this build is no where near that,should work just fine. Looking to get 250 hp to the wheels....... thanks
Added this.........
Cleaned up the A/C compressor for the build !

Great Job on taking your time and getting everything clean and fresh! It's better to have everything looking like you want it to instead of having regrets of not doing something while you were there.

It's cool to know the previous owners didn't bull crap you about what all the done to the car! Seems like you have a solid budget build on your hands, and hitting your goal of 250whp should be an issue at all. If you haven't done so already about the only thing I'd recommend is maybe an electric fan since you already upgraded the alternator, and maybe an adjustable fuel pressure regulator with a fuel gauge as well. that way with the added power and the timing bump your gonna do you have less of a chance to get any detonation under hard acceleration.

I was up at Lou's shop yesterday for a couple of hours here's how far we got it's starting to look like an engine again waiting and the injectors at this point... I realized after we started putting it back together that it's going to be alot of work now keeping it clean ! Here's some pics....

Here's a pic of how far we got today shows the new radiator in had to make some light adjustments to get this thick radiator in also put stainless steel brackets in to hold in place. Painted along the shock towers and firewall alittle to stop the surface rust from getting any worse.There's still alot to do but it's slowly coming together ! More pics to come...

^ thanks ! update: Working on the car again last night and got the Radiator, fan shroud, fan is all in and came out nice.He had to make some custom brackets and such. Also installed and wired the alternator and put together the upper intake, throttle body, egr, iac,distributor etc. If the injectors come by Saturday a good chance when can get it all back together have the oil changed/radiator fluid back in and try to firing this motor back up !
Here's a couple more pics ..........

Found that a 1.5" carb stud works great for mounting the throttle body.
There are 2 options:
1 regular steel, 1 black oxide ARP ? I went with the black oxide ARP, here's a closer pic

Lou, primed the engine, everything looks good,also got a measurement for a new belt.

I went back up to Lou's shop Sunday night changed the oil installed antifreeze and put in the new O2 sensors.Lou worked on the top of the engine installing the new injectors upper intake and airbox connected all plugs and fittings it was the moment of truth to turn the key! The car started with in seconds no oil leaks or water leaks to be found the car idled on its own... NOW the bad the car seems to have a chatter on the passenger side Lou said wasn't happy with the way the 1.7 rockers sounded?So at this point we are going to remove the upper intake and valve covers and see if we can find the problem? Perhaps it's has simple maybe the rocker hitting the valve cover I personally doubt that being they are cobra valve covers and made to clear all that. If that isn't the issue maybe considering reshimming the rockers on both sides to a different setting to perhaps quiet them down a little or to get to the bottom of this in one quick shot change the 1.7 rockers back to the stock rockers to figure out if it's a bad rocker or head issue ? So that where we are at ........

Here some more pics !

Thanks ..... I'm a bit uncertain about the tapping.Lou shimmed all the rockers to preload at 1/4 turn (which is where I like to run a hyd roller). I'm wondering if a rocker is hitting the baffle in the VC, or if it just wants more preload....

I'm going to swap the stock rockers back on, and give them 3/4 turn of preload (thinner shim) and see what that yields. If that doesn't solve it...then it's a head/guide issue....
Lets hope that isn't the case.
If that DOES in fact solve it, then I'll put the 1.7 rollers back on with the same preload and see what that does....
Problem solving 101 in effect...

That's the first thing I thought of when you said that, especially with 1.7's

Turned out to be an adjustment issue. Quiet like stock, tended to a few slight water leaks, clean test drive, just drove it 20 miles home with out incident! Runs 100% better throttle response you can hear that air sucking in that fender wall now that we took off the air silencer ...Here a little video not the best quality but you get the idea !
