So Doc. Bostick got some parts dropped off to him........... There's some usable parts in here somewhere.


We'll keep ya posted.......







BME rods cleaned and being shipped home for a check-up and resizing.

New manifold purchase:


I even have a few carbs laying around:



We'll see if we can get something together ...... pump gas or something else. Maybe just a dyno mule. We'll get it figured out in a month or so after we go through all the parts.


Keep ya posted ...

Jon, not sure which brand oil filter that thing was using, but stop using them. That things a mess. One layer of window screen could do a better job than that:duh:

Is that a Boss block or a SCJ?
Boss blocks had screw in freez plugs.

I have a used set of alum rods and 4.53" pistons for the older A460 heads if someone needs them. Not sure of the rod length, 3.85 stroke.

:duh::bangmyhead::)hammers:oops:

I cannot believe I asked that!! If I turn in my Ford lovers card, do you promise to never tell anybody I was that stupid?

Thank God it wasn't a 390 and I asked if it was a 427. I would deserve to have the card ripped up, and painted head to toe with GM orange.
boy was that ever a dumbass question!

It's a trashed SCJ block... it needs a lot of TLC, we had water freeze in it and cracked the block it has sleeves in every bore and the block has concrete in it 3/4 full. Not sure what we are going to do with it yet.

Oh I have this sitting on the shelf too: might as well us it too

Ah, you have to love rare and obsolete Ford stuff. If that was a mundane 4 bolt Chevy, it would be a Prius by now. But its a Ford, and we can save it, we have the technology! You can't throw that away Jon, its one of only a few 6 million dollar blocks. You have way to much invest to toss it. Fill solid and run it as a 1/4 mile alky deal for another 20 years.

The oil pump may be the answer to your pressure problems.;)

How well do those work? I had talked to the "guy" at Predator and of course he told me they were great and wonderfully suited to boats........everyone else told me they made a better anchor.
