The drill bit has the point taper to contend with and then a tapered tap will barely start that shallow. A bottoming tap will get threads down near the taper but it still won't be more than 3 threads on a course thread bolt. I would be concerned about it holding for long.

I see another threaded hole in the head near the exhaust. You could make a triangulated bracket and use both those holes for rigidity and strength. It would appear like another Allen Grove bracket... I have his sets for my alt, ps and a/c comp too. Looks like a puzzle when I opened the boxes...

Yep. Alan Grove brackets. They're not bad. I ended up adding a bracket to the front header bolt.

Thanks for the tip BOBCRMAN! I'll check it with my calipers to be sure it's not going to go on too tightly! The old one went on pretty tight, but looked original style.
Definitely need to check it. I had to buff out an aftermarket damper for a guy's 454 Monte Carlo. It wouldn't even start on. I buffed it out with a small flapper wheel on a die grinder, to where it went on the first inch or so, without a lot of trouble. Still had to drive on it with a block of wood and a shop hammer and finish it up with the bolt.

Thanks.
I should have thought about that since my 327 has on on the other side for P/S since there are no holes in heads (camel humps) it also hooks to front two exaust bolts and a t bracket.

I thought .028 down the hole was pretty much a stock set up. Am I wrong ? Sounds like regular rebuilders pistons. Allows for decking the block.

I put the Falcon back together today. New balancer, water pump, and fixed the pulley for now. I was able to weld up a die to put on my 12 ton press and press out the couple dents in it. It spins true, but cosmetically still needs to be replaced when I can find one cheap.
BOBCRMAN-Your advice on balancer dimensions was great! I took the old one, and my dial calipers along, and checked it all before I laid down my money. Salesman thought I was sorta anal, but I could care less. It saved me doing it again, and it went right on! Thanks!

Weeded my garden ,mowed 2 acres with a push mower , baby sat my grand kids, put a switch on the blue lights I installed in my Vettes side louvers that come on with the lights so if I get pulled over I can shut them off, installed a kill switch on the Vettes ignition, and pulled it out and washed it for the first time this year!

That might have been my problem also,i had to take a brake cyl hone to the inside of mine it would go on about half way then stop would not pull on up even with a balancer installer..it is a Fluid Damper I bought from Ebay ,probably why they sold it, fits the old saying You Get what you pay for.

Not much for me, but I did put a half hour or so in tonight before I ran over to my daughters school to help decorate for her big graduation from elementary school tomorrow. Oh yeah, and by the way, she is a straight A student!

So on the truck I sand blasted and cleaned up on the door, still have a little bit more before I can prime it and then weld it back together.

I buy a lot of my parts on Ebay, but sometimes I get stuck with junk, or things I have to rework to use.

finally the van side arrived at the shop. I handled cutting out the side on the van and the other guys tag teamed the chunk of steel by cutting out spot welds. One problem...Fords use weld bond/panel adhesive around the wheels on their vans and bed sides. So yeah, that's gonna be fun cutting that outer wheel house out(donor) and having to separate it without messing up the skin. Thank god the wheel house on the van needs to be pulled so it looks like I'll be tied up. I'll bring in my mini torch and have them cut around the wheel house(donor) and then heat up that wheel house lip while trying to separate it.

Also to follow up on something I said earlier. I mentioned loosening up the body bolts in the rear to release tension and let the body relax to square up the hole/rear door opening. It worked a little bit but I sped up the process with a huge sledge hammer and 4x4. Rather than gauging the results by looking at the door I did that but put more importance on looking at the mark where the mount used to be and how much I got back. It became unbunched. and the gap to the door got better.

anywho, the Cougar left today and the owner will be installing the head lights/taillights/ rear bumper/ door handles and then it gets new interior and subframed. So it will definitely come back in a month or so for a complimentary rub and I'll get pics of the interior. Got some pics of it today partially assembled and detailed. I'll upload those in a few days. Car turned out well for not being show quality. The team is clicking right now.
