Well, this is how it goes for me; I work overtime and buy parts every pay day. Now I have to come up with the time to wrench. Arriving this week are the k-member spacers to try to fit the 351 under the stock hood. Also a crank pulley spacer for proper accessory alignment. And finally the exhaust headers to adapt the 351 Windsor to the foxbody exhaust system. As soon as the headers arrive I will post pics of the new pieces.

OK. I bought a lightning engine because of the better cylinder heads and the block is roller cam compatible. When I found the roller rockers under the valve covers I was hopeful that this engine was converted to roller cam already. It isn't. I removed the intake so I could find out by looking in the lifter valley, and broke an intake bolt which threads into a cylinder head. Hopefully I will be able to remove it! The block casting shows it is a roller cam block. I will just have to convert it to roller cam myself.

Arriving this week are the crankshaft pulley spacer for proper accessory alignment, k-member spacers to try and keep this engine under the stock hood line, and the bbk ceramic coated shorty swap headers necessary to mate a 351 with a foxbody mustang exhaust system. I am proud to say not a dime of this build is on credit. I work overtime, and then I buy parts. I am trying for a promotion at work, but if I get the promotion and go to the other side of the desk I lose ot. Basically a pay cut despite a small increase in base salary. Small rant over.

235/55r17 is a tall tire. It works out to 27.18 inches according to our tire calculator. That may be fine for today's mustangs, which is where my wheels came from, but for the Daddywagon I needed a smaller diameter. Well I found some worn out autocross tires on Craig's in 245/45r17 for $50. I just wanted to sample the size for fitment, so I bought them. I'll post pics later.

Taken yesterday with the cheapo autocross tires. 245/45r17 is the proper size I think with these wheels. Still need to roll the rear fenders a little.

No time to wrench yet. I did pick up the pushrods I need for my roller cam conversion. I also decided to buy "another" wiring harness for the engine that is comparable to the original mustang harness. This way I can keep the emissions functions intact. Red Duplicolor brake caliper paint has also been ordered so I can show off the cobra brakes. Once I get the 351 squared away I will pull the 302 that I put in there already and swap engines. This will be done on another wrenching vacation just like last summer except I am planning it for September. On the list of parts still needed are 255 lph fuel pump, starter, and the 351 distributor out of a 1989 ford truck or van.

Awesome!

(I'm also sure your homeowners association would like some pictures of your driveway project for the newsletter. )

Once again, thank you all for the encouragement. I am just as anxious as all of you to see the completion of this project! It has been with me for a long time. I can remember planning this build in theory a long time ago and mentioning it to others. Most just laughed it off, but thought it would be cool.
