Starting the White Capri
I have been restoring this 1986 5.0 Mercury Capri for over 2 years. I fired
it up and worked most of the bugs out of it, so I thought I'd make a video
of it shaking the walls of my garage. Enjoy.
1985 Mustang 460 Burnout
Hastings high school autos program built this 1985 Mustang with an old 460 engine for
our drag racing team and needed to burn off the old tires before putting on
85 Mercury Capri New Engine First Time Out (Stumble) 3rd run
First time out for new engine. Had a very bad stumble off the line. Found
out later that my MSD 7AL2 was pulling 10 degrees of timing out between
3,000 and 4,000 RPM's. So I was leaving the line with only 24 degrees of
timing!! No wonder the car was falling flat on it's face!! Despite dismal
60 foot times in the 1.80's, the car was still running 7.0's in the 1/8
mile at 97 MPH. That was short shifting at only 6,000 RPM's. My goal of
6.60's in the 1/8 with this new engine should be easily realized after it
gets sorted out

85 Mercury Capri New Engine First Time Startup
Just finished building a 347 stroker for my Capri bracket car to replace
the 351 Cleveland that I have been racing in several different
configurations for the past 23 years. Just started it for a short time to
set the timing and see if therre were any issues that needed immediate
attention. The next day I did the obligatory 20 minute break in cycle at
2500 rpm and varying the rpms.
