69 Mustang project

Post #1 by Llink78 » Sat Oct 21, 2017 6:43 pm

I guess its a good time as any to finally post about my mustang. It’s always a guessing game when cracking open a 47 year old motor. Sometimes you just get lucky! Picked up my 69 3 years ago, and recently came into a deal on a Aussie head for the I6. Started the disassembly and to my surprise the block was bored 0.30 over. Started disassembly yesterday and got as far as getting the headstuds in and realized i needed to order a few more things to finish up. Here are some pics of how she currently sits. End game is a single turbo 2 years from now. When i got here i tore off just about all the suspension components and replaced with parts from Global West.
Think she sits good.

Getting closer. Motor is together and did a start up. Running rough. Sure I need a lot of carb adjustments.
