67 Mustang Coupe Build

Post #1 by Georgia200 » Mon Feb 04, 2019 11:09 pm

Thought I would start a thread separate from my engine build thread.

I have a 67 200/C4, 3.20 Power Drum Brakes. Rust free, good driver, although I think a cam lob is wiped.

Im swapping in a 250, C4, 8in - 2.79, 5 lug power drum brakes.

While the block is at the machine shop Im working on the 5 lug swap. Fronts are ready to bolt on, the axles are out of the rear end for seals and bearings. I also have a set of 14x6 GT rims that I will put my full wheel covers on with 215-75-14 WWs.

Pics tomorrow.

Todays progress:

Dropped the wheels off to have the new tires installed.

Dropped the rear brake backing plates off to have the bosses where the shoes ride repaired. Three of them had grooves.

Dropped the axles off to have new bearings pressed on.

Bought all the gaskets and seals I need to install axles and brakes.

Primed axle housing.

Edit: Gave the new to me front drums a good once over, didnt like what I saw, so ordered new bearings, shoes, cylinders, already have new hoses and everything else looks good. Going with 2.5 vice 2.25 shoes, looks like there is room for them.

Sorted some issues out this week:

My research shows that the 1967 200/C4 u-joint is the same as the 289 u-joint. I think my driveshaft will bolt up to the 8in yoke without a u-joint change.

I couldnt ID the front wheel bearings, so I ordered new bearings and seals for the hubs. When the spindles changed in 70, they used different bearings. Any year hubs work as long as you use the correct race and bearing for your spindle diameter.

I planned on bolting up the front brakes as I bought them, but once I gave them a good lookover, I tore them down. All Im keeping is the drums, backing plates and hubs, everything else is new. BTW: 2.5in shoes will not fit the 2.25in backing plates.

Axles have bearings pressed on and are ready to be picked up.

Rear pinon yoke is derusted and ready for paint

All four backing plates are painted and ready for assembly.

The flu has been going around, Ive had it all week, my machine shop has not done any work on the block due to workers being ill. I still dont know deck height so I can figure out CR and internals.
