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.

8in is in.

Need to bleed the brakes and work on the hand brake cables. (My car didnt have one.)

driveshaft and u-joints bolted right up.

Having some issues with the new brake lines, so no brakes.

Fronts are ready to go on.

Tires are 215 75 14. I hope they are not to tall.

Wheels are 14x6 Torino GT.

I hope to be completely 5 lug and on the road by the weekend.

Nothing done this weekend.

I had to do some needed maint on my Fusion and Civic. Those are my two work cars. The Fusion gets about 1200 miles a week and the Civic about 600 miles a week. The Civic just hit 300k.

Its been a long month.

Im 5 lug all around. Bled, adjusted and working.

My car is missing the bracket on the passenger floor pan for the hand brake cable. Ive got a plan to use an eyebolt through an existing hole in the frame rail. Hope to have that installed and working this weekend.

I think my booster needs a rebuild.

Nothing significant to report.

Ive been busy with work, yard work, house and grand kids so the cars have been on the back burner.

Slow going. Discovered the heater core leaking.

Thought it would be a quick core replace. Noooooooooooooooo. Control cables shot, heater box has no seals, no defrost vents.

Pulled the heater box, firewall pad, driver vent, carpet, seats.

Bought necessary replacement parts.

Cleaned up pan, dyed carpet, replaced heater core, rebuilt heater box, replaced firewall pad.

The passenger cowl is in excellent condition, the driver side, not so good.

I cut out the hat, derusted what I can reach and am about to install a plastic repair hat. Its the best I can do from the inside and will hold for a few years since I keep the car inside.

Once the interior is back together I will move under the hood.

Picking up a fresh shortblock on a 250.

Pretty sweet deal, oem specs. I think I will change the cam and shave the head to bump compression, then its going in.

Car life has been on hold. Ive had some health issues that I have been addressing for almost nine years, I was in an accident in Oct that made the issues worse. My 65 coupe has been down since Aug for a WP replace and PS upgrade. Im hoping to have that on the road in the next week or two. I think I will require surgery and be down for a month or so for that.

Ive decided that since my 65 is so nice and the 67 will never be a high value car, I may as well have some fun with the 67.

Im going to squeeze more performance out of the 250 long block I bought, install EAPS, do some suspension work and maybe do a T5.

From there i will see what else I can do without busting the bank.

Wish you a speedy recovery. A modded 250 will be a torque monster.
What head mods are you using.
If you need distributor & ignition mods just give a shout. Bill
