So far its going good ...for my son...now I (DAD) have my own project to compllete by July 10, 2007....I obtained a 1966 Ford Fairlane GTA...factory 390 auto trans,car is complete with 22,000 miles on it!!! It is all complete except for the motor..it has none!!!...I have a 1987 Lincoln 5.0 HO motor with 65,000 miles on it. It is equipped with F.I. but i am going to remove it and put a new perf mani and carb.Question time...would i be better off using the original c4 trans or use the electronic trans with the lincoln engine??...It is not going to be a track car....but i want nice throttle response when i hit it!!....im not concerned about gas mileage or inspection limits!!I have been told i am going to have a major problem with a diff dist for carb..They say the gear will always break on the dist because it is plastic???...why cant i change it to metal???Please help ..im pressed for time to do swap...car must be in body shop for paint by May 15,2007.....SSUPERWRENCH
The AOD is not electronic until 93. Just the normal TV cable. Existing trans mount moves back 2 inches.
Doing the SFI is simple, done several. Carb will not be more responsive than SFI.
Roller cam requires a different material distributor gear. Just use a normal Ford Duraspark electronic dist from the late 70s and change the gear.
If you want to stay fuelie, like me,
Except for computer + and -, and the fuel pump circuit.... there are only 3 SFI wires to hook up to old harness. It is simple and easy.
My personal car is a 63 Fairlane 2 dr ht with 5.0 fuelie (92 Mustang) and T-5, disc brakes, AC etc.
PM if you need more help. :thumbup:
