I don't see any problems with it. Obviously steel line is stronger and more resistant to physical damage, but fuel hose should work fine as long as you're using a mechanical fuel pump.

I'm terrible at drawing wiring schematics on the computer, but I can give you a run-down.

There are two ways to wire things up while keeping the fender-mounted factory starter solenoid:

That's definitely one way to do it.

When researching aluminum radiator options a while back, I had decided on PCP as a supplier. They do make some good aluminum radiator options.

Don't bother with a 4-row radiator. A good 3-row will flow more air and allow for better heat transfer. I run a quality brass/copper 3-row in front of my 331 in 100+ heat and temps never go over 210...

I don't recall any hardware holding my panel in from the rear, just the screws on the front. I do have to lift mine to get the lip of the gauge panel housing over the lip of the dash, but that's it....

Direct replacements were being produced a while back. I'd take a look at your favorite aftermarket parts supplier, or eBay.

If it's not available anymore, you can hack an 80's jeep tach (commonly...

Toploader is Ford's 4sp manual. They're extremely durable, but probably not what I'd recommend for you.

Late model Ford AOD transmissions are fairly common swaps and will get you an overdrive gear...

No, you pretty much want nothing from the front end of a fox body. The transmission and rear can be handy, as well as some EFI bits if you want to go that route, but fox body front ends are...

4-row radiators are generally a gimmick. For your application, a good 3-row should allow more airflow and heat transfer than a 4-row. If you have cooling concerns, look at a either widening your...

It's not the gears alone that need to be changed. The entire car needs to be converted to the V8 5-lug setup, which means new spindles, hubs, steering, and axle assembly (including the housing).

If this was originally an I6 car...have you upgraded the suspension, brakes, and rear end? If not, those need to be top priority.

Changing out the intake, carb, and cam may net you some improved power/torque, but I suspect you'll still be disappointed.

Sounds to me like you might want to be looking at re-gearing the rear...

Thank you:)

I think the firewall is a bit different from 65-66 to 67-68, necessitating a different m/c mounting bracket. There's also some clearance concerns with the brake m/c when you mount the...

Quite a bit, unfortunately.

The factory bell housing doesn't have provisions for an external slave, and the clutch fork pivots from the driver's side, necessitating a puller slave if one were to...

Congratulations!

First thing, pick up a copy of the Factory Service Manual. It'll set you back ~$40, but it's worth every penny.

Personally, I'd start with the brakes/suspension repairs and...
