Hello from United Kingdom - Mach 1 351

(1/3) > >>

I am new to this forum.

I have a 1970 mustang mach 1 351.

Bought it from a guy local to me a month ago, he had it for 3 years, when he got it he took the engine and gearbox out and had them both professionally and completely rebuilt at the cost of thousands.

But he lost the plot and then did not know how it all went back together again.

So i bought the car off him with the engine and gearbox on a pallet and also two boxes full of bits , nuts, bolts, trim, carb in bits, distributor in bits and half the spark plug wires missing, ect.

4 weeks later

I now have the engine and gearbox back in the car and running, its got a new holley 600cfm carb, new electronic distributor, and new fireball coil. and it runs fantastic

The guy give be a picture of the engine before he removed it, he said it never run right so thats why he had it rebuilt, BUT for some reason in the picture the sparkplug wires where wired to all engines except 351. so i wired it the the picture and on start up it only run on 4 cylinders and then cut out.  so i then wired it to 351 as it says in the haynes manual and it runs perfect. LOL

it did have an original autolite carb and a 1973 dual contact breaker distributor which i thru away.

This saturday coming i am taking it for the UK MOT test so hopefully it will pass. I will also get a tune up while i am there.

I should have it on the road shortly after that. I cant wait . I know this will get much more attention than my 78 black trans am and thats a daily driver.

Wish me luck!

Here are some pictures:
