Probably a bad prep job. I think the metal they used on Motorcraft carbs starts to oxidize before the degreaser even evaporates....

Something else for me to add to the round to-it list, eh?

Proper masking off is a critical part of proper preparation

Hi guys well it's been a while and believe it or not the snow has just gone...had a crap load 3ft two weeks ago [>:]. Warming up now 15'C.
So this weekend out to the garage and start stripping and cleaning yeeeeeh at last. Will take pics of the strip down and engine removal as I go in case anyone interested. Got the hood off !!!! after marking the hing position.

Some pics of the engine removal ..... and some questions! Like what are the hoses that are plugged ? and why!! ...is that the air supply pump mounted below the alternator it looks like it is not in use as I think the hose with the sparkplug jammed in it attached to the back of it!!! Any help or comments on what you can see would be great....

Default new to the"78" mustang 2

i just got a 1978 fastback mustang 2 from my aunt who is the original owner. the car is a factory 302 factory t-top car. this car has been sitting for 17yrs..since 95. assuming i have no interest in restoring this car, can the block be used in an EFI application? with everything else being what it should be of course. the interior is mint...are these parts sought after at all? when it was parked it had no mechanical problems at all. ???? any help is appreciated..thx
