1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 2

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.

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 1 https://youtu.be/AwpLK-HMjQE 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 2 https://youtu.be/gFUibnY_Fbs 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible Engine Swap Part 3 - Dis-assembly of the 289 https://youtu.be/d3SPN57NcBA 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 4 - Building the 289 Short Block https://youtu.be/9cTnq88odCA 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 5 - Heads, Lifters, Push Rods & Roller Rockers https://youtu.be/Q9ZmYzru2P8 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 6 - 289 4bbl & Oil Pump https://youtu.be/zvkvF50XYbc 1964 Falcon Sprint Convertible Engine Removal Part 7 https://youtu.be/tqBuvtURs9w 1964 Falcon Sprint Convertible Installing Ford 289ci and C4 Automatic Part 8 https://youtu.be/1AMQo7ENCM4 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible Maiden Voyage 289 V8 C4 Automatic Part 9 https://youtu.be/i5nWiqp3Oqo





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 closed pressure of about 70PSI. 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible Engine Swap Part 1 https://youtu.be/AwpLK-HMjQE 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 2 https://youtu.be/gFUibnY_Fbs 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible Engine Swap Part 3 - Dis-assembly of the 289 https://youtu.be/d3SPN57NcBA 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 4 - Building the 289 Short Block https://youtu.be/9cTnq88odCA 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 5 - Heads, Lifters, Push Rods & Roller Rockers https://youtu.be/Q9ZmYzru2P8 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 6 - 289 4bbl & Oil Pump https://youtu.be/zvkvF50XYbc 1964 Falcon Sprint Convertible Engine Removal Part 7 https://youtu.be/tqBuvtURs9w 1964 Falcon Sprint Convertible Installing Ford 289ci and C4 Automatic Part 8 https://youtu.be/1AMQo7ENCM4 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible Maiden Voyage 289 V8 C4 Automatic Part 9 https://youtu.be/i5nWiqp3Oqo For machine work for both old and new see Mando's Machine Shop http://www.mandosmachineshop.com/ Music by: Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Title: "Exotics"





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. 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible Engine Swap Part 1 https://youtu.be/AwpLK-HMjQE 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 2 https://youtu.be/gFUibnY_Fbs 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible Engine Swap Part 3 - Dis-assembly of the 289 https://youtu.be/d3SPN57NcBA 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 4 - Building the 289 Short Block https://youtu.be/9cTnq88odCA 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 5 - Heads, Lifters, Push Rods & Roller Rockers https://youtu.be/Q9ZmYzru2P8 1964 Ford Falcon Engine Swap Part 6 - 289 4bbl & Oil Pump https://youtu.be/zvkvF50XYbc 1964 Falcon Sprint Convertible Engine Removal Part 7 https://youtu.be/tqBuvtURs9w 1964 Falcon Sprint Convertible Installing Ford 289ci and C4 Automatic Part 8 https://youtu.be/1AMQo7ENCM4 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible Maiden Voyage 289 V8 C4 Automatic Part 9 https://youtu.be/i5nWiqp3Oqo Music: Kevin MacLeod Title: Modern Jazz Samba





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.
