The 4 speed is smaller than the c-6 so I wouldn't expect any trouble?  Long
tube headers collectors come out right at the little arc in the cross
memeber which is well away from the tranny and actually where the original
exhaust goes (2wd only).  On 4x4's you have to clear the xfer case.

Gang,
Well, as I said before, the best laid plans of mice and men.....
My motor took longer than anticipated, so I missed the SBSO. BUT, the new
heart is in and pumping fine. I still have some tuning to do and some
adjustments to make, but all in all, it was a definite learning experience. I
am making a parts number list and any custom modifications I had to make so
it would work. This will be listed on my website very soon, along with pics
of the install. What a rush of power the 351 has, I cant wait to get this
thing tuned right and tear off a couple of runs at the track.


Better to be a racer for a moment, than a spectator for a lifetime

I looked for a long time to find a set for my 75 F250 429/4spd. 4x4.  The
set of Sanderson's that I ended up using would fit in your 2x4.  They are a
bit more $ then the Headman's but they are a much higher quality unit then
Headman has ever built!  I didn't install them the way that Sanderson said
to using Felpro gaskets in-place of silicone sealer.  No leaks even when 2
bolts fell out!
Needless to say I'd recommend them.

Look forward to seeing you again.

My problem is the clutch z-bar that goes between the frame and the
bellhousing.  Its pretty much right there, and is the reason I ran open
manifolds till I could afford the exhaust system after I swapped in the 4
speed.  I hope I can find some, cuz if I can, shes gettin dual 3 inch pipes,
and a nice balance tube.

Thanks Chris.  I assume those would be the block hugger headers, that almost
look the same shape as the manifolds?  Looks like I may end up saving for a
lil while longer.  This project has been taking awhile, so its almost gone
out of spec for some old truck motor.  Still building the standard 460 bottom
end, but its balanced, and has the truck style rods (the same as the 429 CJ
rods) 1968 heads (with the pistons Im runnin, Im lookin at 9.7 or 9.8:1)
Comp 268 cam and comp valve springs.  Offy 360 manifold, and Holley 750
(these two require thanks to some fellow FTE members)  Due to me being unable
to remove my old 460, I've been having to locate all the bolts and tinware
from other motors so my machinst can get it assembled.  Did a quick valve
cover swap yesterday so I could get my aluminum ones polished up and ready, I
ordered an allen head bolt kit from ebay that covers all the exterior bolts,
and also an oil pan.  Total Ebay investment for Tweety?  $50.  Also, since I
had no headblots, and 460 head bolts are dealer only, I went ahead and
ordered a stud kit for the heads.  Cheaper than standard bolts from Ford, and
better too!  Only things left to round up is the timing cover, spacer, and
fuel pump eccentric.  Goin to the wreckin yard tomorrow for that stuff. Got
my K&N cleaned up yesterday, even though they work well when dirty, I decided
that at least the large mud chunks had to go.  Vegas actually has clay here,
and man oh man, is it hard to clean off! Im gettin real close to wrapping
this all up.  Gettin all excited.  Oh and the color I've chosen to paint all
the beautiful hardware?  A nice bright Daytona Yellow.  Sorry but Ford blue
just looks odd in a brown truck.  Coulda gone with old school Ford Gold, but
I just dont like gold on a truck, too much of it here already.  Thanks for
listenin to me ramble.  Im just way excited.
