Thanks Stu. Today was a beautiful day so I rolled the engine out of the garage today & did a little more work on it. I installed the intake manifold, distributor, water pump, & the dip stick tube. It looks sooooo much better Ford blue then the black the machine shop painted it.
Today before it got too hot & humid I installed the new harmonic balancer instead of using the 32 year old Ford one, installed the 10.5" King Cobra clutch disc, pressure plate, & installed the bell housing.
