Re: 2.5L to 351W swap

I am not positive, but I think the 351C or M are considerably wider. They are 90* blocks and the 289 threw 351W are 60*.
Something that will make a V8 swap in any RBV easier is a body lift. Raising...

Re: Best v8?

Certainly, the F150 has a M5OD that bolts to the 302/5.0L V8. So I understand, it has the same ratios as the other M5's minus the ones for the 4 cylinder, (the laters ratios are lower geared in at...

Re: How do I remove play from my clutch pedal?

Sounds like you need to bleed the clutch hydraulic system. You need to pull the boot out of the reservoir to put fluid in there.

Re: v8 all day

Start with a 3" body lift. You are putting in an engine that is a couple inches wider than a 302, so the lift will give you some clearance.

Re: Best v8?

Why a V8?
In this age of high end v6's, you can get V8 power, (minus a small amount of torque) from a V6 that is going to be a simpler conversion, weighs about a 100# less and will get at least the...

Re: Check Engine Light

I don't understand why you can't use Autozone? The local store does both OBD 1&2. Anyway, for about $30 you can buy an Innova brand code reader model 3145, it only works on 81-95 Fords. Comes with...
