Dennis writres: The unit is mounted on the roof with lines going to the
front of the vehicle

The lines going to the front of the vehicle are to the high and low sides
of the compressor. Gotta have the compressor, and I don't think an
electrical unit for vehicles is available. I installed a rear unit in a
D*dge Custom Van I owned, and ran the lines from/to the original compressor
- - worked great, but had to have the compressor.

Who is your cam grinder? They should have the information. I believe
Crane offers a roller for the FE, don't know about any others. I am
planning an FE rebuild, and would be interested in hearing about your
experience in converting to roller. Thanks! lordjanusz

You need new lifters, pushrods, rockers, maybe valve covers, and of
course the camshaft! The nice thing is you can put a flat tappet back
in...in most cases and not have to change everything back!
Hope this helps

Alot of guys have done this conversion on the Lightnings(351). Try
asking some of the guys on the Lightning list!
