    Jeff--some advice
    I just got a FI 351 truck engine. The next project for my 49, in a couple years.
    My question, do I go with aluminum heads, I notice some folks are running gt40p heads with out problems like blown head gaskets. Looks like I can get the heads off ebay for $600, as time goes by the price will rise I'm sure.
    My thought now is cubic inches not stroke.
    Thanks Pat

    Hi Jeff
    Need some advice, got a cooling leak that hasn't shown up any where.
    Don't see it on the ground or the motor, not on the spark plugs.
    It's small and intermitant. Didn't show up when cold and pressure to radiator.
    I'm getting ready to pull intake and change it out.
    Can I put compressed air through a heater hose and dry the coolant passages
    in the intake. That way if the leak is there I won't have water all around when I
    get to the gaskets? And might see the leak in the gasket seal.

    Hello Jeff
    I blew a water pump seal on my garenteedforlife auto-zone water pump.
    At the track I'm shifting at 5000, temperatures are fine with a stock 68 cougar pump.
    Do you know if this is a quality pump?
    Does high volume equal higher pressure or just volume?

    Well,you used the wrong mounts which is affecting clearance on the exhaust, motor mounts are late Mustang Autozone Duralast 2725 and 2726 transmission mount is a 2253 see these pics for the mods you should do:THE H.A.M.B. If you want to add headers use HEDMAN 88400 they clear everything with zero mods needed.

    hey jeff, Ive got to go to work right now but will respond this afternoon but for now, yes front sump [68 stang ebay] I fabbed my motor mounts plates and used a 70 bronco motor mount. but have heard that late 60s mustang motor mounts are a direct fit, not sure about that but wished I'd heard that earlier,making my adapter plates was a royal pain. I dropped ther tranny mount about 1/12 inch and reformed my trans tunnel then mounted a b&m shifter #80776 with a b&m aod adapter kit#40496. now I'm dealing with custom shroud.I put in a double pass aluminum radiator race application [speedway#917-341-22].the trans mount is a 1992 ford van . don't have that #. This is definitely more fun than work but gotta go. hope this helps a little. Oh by the way the driver side exhaust manifold did not clear so I used a 1965 ford fairlane manifold, it does not drop into the steering box but goes straight back. of course custom dual exhaust to be added. I kept stock brakes but went through them completely

    Hey JeffB,
    It seems that you are the go to guy for info on swaping from a Ford Y block to 351 windsor. I'm working on a 59 Ford wagon. The 292 it had in it was scrambled when I bought it. I'm going with a built 351 windsor and an AOD trans. What motor mounts and trans mounts could I use with little or no fabrication. I'm limited in skills. I was told that I would need a front sump, do you have part numbers. I'm thinking going with a floor shifter and replacing the steering cloumn with a tilt. Do you know what shifter would do the job? Also what headers will fit without clearance problems? I know I'm asking alot of questions, this is my first swap and I want to do it right. Thanks in advance for any help. 59fordwagon.
