Just remember that the stock 2-barrel flows around 500 CFM all the time. A 4-barrel primaries flow lower and get better gas mileage if you stay of the secondaries.

Don't forget that the 5.0 is 50oz imbalance vice the earlier 28oz, which means if you stick with your C4, you will have to change the flexplate.

No...no...no. Do not weld anything. The bushing is a press fit & is easy to drill out. I took a BFH & knocked my stock hinge pins out out. Be careful with the BFH though. The pins are a soft alloy & will mushroom if pounded on too hard. Only one of them was stubborn to get out, but a punch worked fi...

Just did mine last weekend. Using a drill press, drill out the hinge for the outer diameter of the new bronze bushing. After drilling it out, you will have to press the bushing in (tight fit, believe me. I used my table vice). Once pressed in, you will drill out the inside of bushing in order to fit...

Why not take it down to a radiator repair shop? I'm sure they can fix/modify it for whatever is wrong with it. Might be cheaper than buying a used one in questionable condition. :roll:

Be careful welding in those u-joints! There is a slight possibility to spot welding those bearings in place. Just ensure your ground isn't inbetween the arc and u-joint.

Yes, I have a 2" bodylift. If you fit a u-joint about 2-3" from the bottom of the steering column (by the firewall) & one at the box, you'll be fine.

One thing to consider is the throttle linkage on the firewall. Someone mentioned they had problems with it hitting the intake.

Prior to putting the 351W in, did you remember to spin the torque converter (while pushing on it) to properly seat it on the input shaft of the transmission? If your torque converter isn't in far enough, then there might be a possibility that your front pump may have been damaged. Don't ask me how I...

This all started when I changed out my coil & ignition module (Duraspark) in hopes of fixing my hot start problem in my 71. Now when I turn the key to start, the motor turns but does not fire until I release the key to the run position...then it starts (sometimes). I checked the voltage to the start...
