Yea, but i won't get fined for it. After finishing the rust repairs on Vivek's 240Z and then starting another 67 Mustang fastback i squeezed in some time to build another sump and revise the front mounting cradle to get everything sitting just where i want it. This engine is now in permanently.

I need to do surprisingly little more work to have this project running and driving. Another fuel tank and engine bay wiring loom are at the top of the priority list.

Scoota !

Just had a look at the posts on this one

Nice project, but Lucinda ? I would have thought more Lucifa because it looks like it will be one hell of a ride and sound from the rear of it.

Cheers

John

The project looks like it is really coming along!  The picture of the manifold on ebay must be the funniest thing I have seen in a while

Meh, i do what i can. Really want it ready for the BBQ this year. John, refer to the first build page which will explain the name of the vehicle.

More progress, the alternator is fitted from a VS V8 Statesman and has had the front cover changed to suit the ford motor. Fuel and brake lines are back on, Diff, Halfshafts and Tailshaft are in and exhaust has been fitted. Seeing as it came with the $200 conversion kit i bought i was expecting to have to modify it. Turns out it is one of the best fitting exhausts i have ever seen and just needs a rear muffler and tip to complete it. It fits really tight up to the underbody.

Chasing a few parts now. If anyone has an aftermarket manifold laying around for a cleveland (doubtful) i would snap it up. Oil relocation, spark and fuel are all that it needed to fire. Cleaned the valve train, exhaust is on for good and everything else is torqued to spec.
