It's not 12V. You want the choke to open as fast as possible, so you want to give it the full 12V. That's why I don't use the stator post on the back of the alternator. It's only 7V. A relay is...

I think Stanger still does rebuilds. He rebuilt my pump a couple of years ago with excellent results. He is NOT fast, and it is hard to get a response from him. He does do extremely good work. I...

With those miles, I'd say there's a good chance your radiator is plugged up. I'm sure it say for long periods without being flushed. Have you looked at the color of your antifreeze?

Both of those upgrades are pretty big jobs. Personally, I'd focus on other things first. For the steering, I think you'll need a steering box and drag link as well. Modern Driveline has a complete...

I agree. A restored, numbers matching R-code will be $50k-$60k. I've seen people asking in the 20s for rusty projects.

I don't think so. The 351 has a taller deck height, so the shaft would have to be longer.

Nice link! I'm getting ready to do this to my '69 convertible. I already have the spindles, rotors and proportioning valve, and soft lines. So I still need a booster, MC, and pedal.

I have an engine already, how much for the swap

I have a stockish '84 351w sitting in a corner of my garage. My 5.0 is burning a quart every 500 miles. How much will I spend for all the parts needed for the swap?
