thought i would do an update on the mustang today. This week I installed new calipers for the front disc brakes and also installed a rebuilt bendix brake booster and master cylinder. The big project for this week was that i finally got the 351 cleveland installed back where it belongs
The engine install wasn't without some headaches (always seems to happen). After a couple of false starts, the engine finally bolted in the engine mounts and looks really good. I still have an issue with the tranny crossmember not lining up with the the two bolts coming down off the tranny. Since the engine wasn't in the car when I got it, rather than worry too much about that, I plan to just weld up an adapter plate so I don't get too bogged down on that part.
One thing that turned out really nice was the hedman long tube headers. Even though the cleveland is a pretty wide engine for a small block, the headmens bolted right in with no problems. I am looking forward to firing it up with the headers but still have lots of things to do before I will be ready for that.
I am hoping to get the radiator installed this weekend so I can do a leak test and then start tuning the 650 dbl pumper which is always fun.
