Congrats! :)

Probably have better luck looking for 260/289 mounts, though by 68 they may
have had 302's showing up in them, the mounts will work for a 302 as well as
the 260/289, but expect funny looks if you ask for a 302 for a 65 :)

I assume you mean as a bolt in ... dunno on this, the big thing to watch is
the width and the spring width ... so you need the distance between the
backing plates, the distance between the spring perches, and the width of
the spring perches ... if you are willing to have one shortened then you can
get them from anything, but if you want it to just bolt in you'll have to do
some searching ... I don't know what has the same width rears as the
Falcon's, you might find a Maverick that is the same width, but I doubt
those ever got the 9" rear ...

> Will early 69-70 windsor heads bolt straight up on a 80's 351 ?

I would guess so, but you have to watch the intake manifold, and the deck
heights are different, so things may get goofy in the valve train and such
... I know people bolt them on to 5.0's and such, so I'm sure they will work
on the 5.8's, just be sure you have a W not an M-block that you're trying to
bolt to ...

I would check the push rod lengths too, and then use clay to measure it to
be sure they won't hit ... also watch your compression ratio if you're
trying to drive this on the street ... the stock heads for 69/70 were for a
9.5+:1 compression ratio, then when they changed the deck height, I can't
remember if its in your favor or not, at any rate you might want to figure
out the CC's of the head and the dish on the piston to be sure you won't be
runnin a diesel ...

The plastic piece you describe sounds like the shippong plug used to plug
off the filler tube/dipstick hole.
they are designed to be pushed into the pan when the filler tube is
installed and left there causing no problems. At time of rebuild it can be
left out. Some rebuilders keep them for their trans when rebuilt or for
shipping.

Good Call!! I didn't even think about that... I think there is another
shipping plug in the thing as well, in the output shaft, but it wouldn't end
up internal... I bet that is what it is....

Subject: FTE Perf - chrysler master cylinder question

I'm starting to do brakes on my '53 f-100...I'm using a Volare clip and a
Chrysler power booster and master cylinder (that came with the front clip.
I need a Chrysler (i suppose) master cylinder that is set up for dual disk
brakes. the one I have now is for disk/drum. Does anyone know what I
should look for(year/model chrysler product) that will mate up with my 86
Chrysler Power Brake booster and work properly with disk/disk setup?????


also will a late model disc/disc master cylinder have enough bore diameter
(pressure/volume) to work these older disk calipers properly ???


thanks

john

True...

You're looking at spending cubic dollars for a '65-'66 Mustang
9" housing *ONLY*. Between $400 & $600, then filling it, which
means more $$$. As far as I know, these are the only rearends
that will fit as a bolt in. Then you have to consider the fact that
the 9" rears had 5 bolt axels, where as the others had 4 bolt axels.
As does the front hub.....
