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 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. Music: Kevin MacLeod Title: Modern Jazz Samba
Storage Auction Find - 1966 FORD FALCON and MORE!
By remote bid I won this unit for $800.00 containing a 1966 Ford Falcon 2 door survivor, Mazda 13B rotary engine, Garrett turbo charger, Jaguar IRS rear end, VW 091 transaxle, paintball marker plus gear, tools, headers, Klein mountain bike and lots more. Watch as I resurrect the FORD FALCON and drive it around. There's not much more rewarding than reviving a classic, forgotten car.
1964 Falcon Sprint Convertible Installing Ford 289ci and C4 Automatic
I finally get the 289 and C4 in the 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible. I still have a lot of work to do. Linkages have to be made and installed. Parts have to shipped. I found out something about the rear transmission mount that I didn't know. It turns out I bought the adapter for the C4 for no reason, the stock trans-mount fit just like it was made for it.
