Technically, I don't believe, "parts is parts." There are many cases that you get what you pay for, you just need to be prepared to accept the consequences for buying junk.
I'm just showing off some of the parts that I bought for the Falcon. I got a little baby Holley 4BBL, an HEI distributor, roller tipped rockers and a few other things. It looks like I'm going to start pulling the engine next weekend.
Thanks for watching.

1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 4 - Building the 289 Short Block
A lot of steps cut our of this. I completely disassembled the block and
de-greased the block, the crank and several other parts. I did a quick hone
on the cylinders, mostly to freshen them up a bit but also to clean some
stains out of them. Upgraded to a double roller style timing chain.
Everything is torqued and ready for the heads. I'll do those next.
1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible Engine Swap Part 3 - Dis-assembly of the 289
It's finally happening. I'm pulling the 289 apart so that I can wash the
parts and get it ready for reassembly. Looks like I have some extra work
ahead of me too, someone tried to steal the cd player, so now I need to
pull the old one out and get a new one.

1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 5 - Heads, Lifters, Push Rods & Roller Rockers
When I first pulled the heads apart it was evident that the "rebuild" was
sloppy. The intake valve and the Exhaust valves were all Chevy/GM. The Exhaust valves were fine though and we reused
them. The intake valves though, well, they were quite a bit longer than the
Exhaust and were making the closed
spring pressure too light. All new intake valves took care of the problem.
We now have a closde pressure of about 70PSI.

1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 6 - 289 4bbl & Oil Pump
Looked up how to set the valve lash for hydraulic lifters. I'm not sure
what I was thinking in the last video. Oh well! Valves are set and so I
install the intake manifold. That old factory 4bbl intake is the closest
thing to a 289 HiPo this engine will see.

Watch the 2015 Ford F-450 6.7L Diesel Super Duty Debut at the State Fair of Texas
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) Ford introduced its 2015 F-Series Super Duty
lineup at the Texas State Fair and the big news is a better Power Stroke V8
turbo diesel engine. They've also beefed
up the F-450 to make it even tougher. The new Power Stroke features a
larger GT37 turbocharger that measures
72.5 millimeters in diameter versus the smaller GT32 it replaces which came
in at 64 millimeters. This means Exhaust gases have a larger surface area to spin
the turbo so you'll get extra power.

If you're looking for a fun classic that is as unique as it is cool, this
impressive '65 Ford is the incredible value you've been waiting for!
When this striking Futura rolled into our showroom, one thing was
immediately apparent. The quality of its restoration is top notch in every
way; and whoever spent the time hammering its solid body back into shape
has either spent most of their adult life in a body shop or restored more
than their fair share of second generation Falcons. From the top of its
smooth roof to the bottom of its cool Turquoise body, this car is much
straighter than when it rolled out of Ford's Lorain, Ohio manufacturing
facility and features a great looking coat of urethane paint which displays
virtually no flaws.
The car's reliable but basic 6-cylinder engine was swapped for a larger 351
Cleveland four valve V8 that looks great covered in a thick coat of
traditional Ford Blue paint. And its clean engine bay was fitted with an
assortment of dress up pieces, which range from gray hood hardware to
polished stainless fuel lines, and then refinished in the same slick
Turquoise urethane as its glossy exterior panels. The 351 gets its air and
fuel from an Offenhauser aluminum intake which props a Holley 4-barrel
carburetor below a chrome topped, satin black dual snorkel air cleaner.
Fire is provided by a traditional points distributor that sends spark
through eight Autolite Pro Fit premium plug wires which snake around finned
aluminum Ford Racing valve covers. And cooling is provided by a Northern
aluminum radiator which is complete with both a polished cap and a polished
Motivation is provided by a reliable Ford C6 3-speed automatic transmission
and a traditional Ford nine inch rear end. Steering is provided by a
traditional manual rack which gives the car a unique, vintage feel. And
braking is provided by a combination of manual front discs and manual rear
drums which do an excellent job of providing fade free, drama free stops.
Keeping the car firmly planted on the pavement is a nice set of Halibrand
15 inch Five Spoke wheels which ride on 195/65 Hankook radials up front,
and 215/70 Cordovan Centron radials out back. And overall, the bottom of
this Falcon presents very well with solid floors that display no signs of
rust, a straight frame that shows no indication of damage, and a slew of
road ready parts that all function just as they should.
This cool Falcon's tasteful and comfortable two-tone blue interior is a
classy reminder of the days when style and appeal were the central focus of
automotive design. At the front of the car, rebuilt factory gauges ride
inside a fully restored dash which hangs pristine stainless trim above a
set of modern, chrome trimmed auxiliary gauges and a chrome shifter that's
complete with an awesome piston shift knob. At the sides of the car, great
looking two-tone door panels wrap like-new vinyl around restored, stainless
trimmed armrests, fresh chrome handles for the doors and windows and
correct chrome emblems. And in the middle of the car, completely rebuilt
and recovered two-tone blue bench seats provide the perfect spot for main
street cruise nights. In front of those seats, a correctly restored
steering wheel holds a chrome horn button above a chrome turn signal stalk
and a large, column mounted Sunpro tachometer. Below the seats, excellent
looking dark blue carpet rides under color-matched floor mats. And above
the seats a like-new tan headliner leads the eye from chrome A-pillar
covers and a flame embossed rearview mirror to a straight and fade-free
package tray which hangs two speakers over a fully restored trunk.
Solid, well-done early 60s metal like this doesn't come along too often,
and given the attention it draws in our showroom, it won't last long
either! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more
