T5 Recommendation for a 65 mustang 200

I know there are many discussions already about the T5 swap. I just have one specific question. I have a guy who will build to order any T5. I also know that gear ratios differ from year to year. Is there a specific year that works best with a 1965 200, 2.77, 8.5" clutch. I have done moderate i...

Re: 1.5" exhaust values?

Is there any worry of removing too much metal to fit the hardened seats in and accidentally damage another part of the head?

1.5" exhaust values?

I have a 1980 cylinder head that I have been working on for a while now, and I can't find any information about whether or not to add hardened valve seats after increasing the exhaust value opening. I assume when increasing the diameter of the exhaust value opening from 1.38 to 1.5 I would be elimin...

Re: Chinese autolite 2100. Ever try one?

I'm not a big fan of that either, but I can't find too many motorcraft 2100s online and I'm not sure what I should expect to pay for one.

Re: Chinese autolite 2100. Ever try one?

Sorry if this is discussed in another thread, but I am trying to decide whether to buy one of these off of eBay. Has anyone gone ahead and used these Autolite 2100 knockoffs? Any information and/or results would be great to know about.

Finding a Rocker Assembly?

Hi all,
Since the rocker assemblies through V.I. have been out of stock for a little while, I have been trying to find other options with no luck. I would like to find adjustable 1.6 rockers if possible. Can rockers for any other work ?

Thanks for the help

Re: Exhaust for a modified i6 200

Ok, so now I am dealing with the throttle attachment to the carb. As you can see in the picture it is connected by a rod. Do I need to replace this with a Lokar throttle cable? Any instructions on how to accomplish this task?

Re: Exhaust for a modified i6 200

I don't want to put much into the carb because I hope to be switching it out for a larger Holley by this summer. So, whatever is the easiest way to go would be ideal. What is a tube'n end-nut?

I hadn't planned on a pot divider because I have read mostly mix reviews with little to gain.

Re: A/C Removal?

If there is a leaky o-ring, should I assume all the Freon has leaked out? If there still is Freon in the system how do I isolate it for removal?

Or should I just go to a mechanic and have them deal with it?

Finding a large log cylinder head?

I am fairly new to this so forgive me if I am missing something. I have a stock i6 200 and from what I have been reading there is a lot to gain by putting a 250 head on a 200. What is the best way to find one and what should I expect to pay for it?
