Default Booster Installation

>I am now only down to installing the pwr booster, master, hardlines and bleeding the brakes and she should be good to go.

When you mount the booster, could you take a photo of it, once mounted, with M/C and the remote reservoir please?

I need to see a live installation to get an idea how it operates and how much room it takes up.

THANX! ;-)

Default RE: Engine Identification

@ KULTULZ,
Thanks for the tranny ID info.... Thats a keeper! I will get at those numbers this weekend and then I'll know if this was a complete transplant (I already suspect it is). I do believe I will take your (and others) advice and if I can't find a date proper engine by the time I'm ready for it, I'll run this little baby... It would be more sellable running anyway (?) <--- I would imagine.
Once more, thanks for all the help and support. I'll post the tranny #'s as soon as I can.

Frank,

If it were mine (and I can only wish here), I would keep this early engine and if desired find the correct carb and rocker covers (if they are different). Finding a numbers correct engine this late in the game may prove difficult. This will give you power until you can maybe find the correct casting/date codes to make it correct.

Maybe look in HEMMINGS to see if there is anything available. May have to but it piece by piece.

Yes, I can shoot some photos of the booster install. I put the mounting plate we fabed up on the car last night. I'm not sure I am doing what you are thinking tho. I don't have a remote resivor. I am using a two chamber power booster and two chamber master cynl with an adj prop valve. It is a universal setup, at least that is what I was told. Really it is almost the same thing I am running on my 68 olds, but nicer, was tempted to use this setup on the olds.

It is not nos or factory ford style stuff at all.

Thanks that was what I was wanting to know.

I wasn't sure about the color till I rubbed it out and started setting the car up, the color is really growing on me.

I understand. I would like to see how well the double diaphram fits/looks in the BIRD if you could... :)
