New member from Murfreesboro, TN

Just wanted to post up and give some background info. I purchased my 1966 F100 w/240 3 speed on my 16th birthday for $1300. After i purchased it and drove it daily for a year or so my dad and i decided to repaint it. We painted it Mack truck red.
Now 13 years later i've began a drivetrain swap to an '89 EFI 5.0 with an AOD transmission behind it. I rebuilt the motor back to stock minus the slight bore...making it a 306, flat top polyeuretic pistons, heads were decked and i cc'd the chambers. At this point in the project i have the motor painted with custom valve cover (made by me), motor mount pedistals moved back, motor in, grand marquis radiator mounted, and the headers are mounted. Next up will be tackling the fuel system, transmission crossmember, wiring and mounting the computer, then the drive shaft.
Being new to this forum i will try to upload build pics to my gallery...Hopefully i can get it to work!

I actually live in the Blackman area. You Murfreesboro guys ever make it out to the Cruze-ins at the Avenue?

Tacson, Where did you end up mounting you ECM? I'm looking for ideas

The ECM is Inside on the firewall. Where you see that big Grommet mounted in the firewall the wires are going to the ECM.

I work 2nd shift so I cant make the Avenue. But I have a F100 buddy who lives on Blackman Road down from Jamison Downs and I am down there often.

Good deal. Thanks for the pic. That's what I was imagining doing. I'm right off Florence road.

For sure. I'm hoping to get this swap done by the end of the month. Then I will be looking at the CV swap!

You doing the 03-up CV IFS? It appears to work for the later model F100 but causes/limits tire options on 53-56's. Have you sourced the IFS yet?

Yeah it's definately in the plans. Yeah, that's what they say...pretty much a bolt in other than the motor mounts. Not yet but after finally getting this motor in i'll probably drive it for a little while as I look for a decently priced interceptor CV IFS or wrecked interceptor.

Try one of the U pull it yards around here for that IFS. Probably your best bet price wise
