Custom Headers for the Mustang II

Discussion in '1974 - 1978 Mustang II Talk & Tech' started by 90NotchBack, Jul 17, 2010.

  1. We got the car back this week. We got headers built to fit the new A460 heads. We also had the front suspension dropped 1in switch raised the car 1inch in the front to give us more room to load and unload the car in the trailer. Plus take some rake out of the stance. We still have to put the motor together and sand a prep the front part of the chassis to repaint in Imron.

  4. I hope to have it painted next week. Monday or Tuesday. I only get to work on it two days a week and only once this week. We will start putting the motor together next week. The crank has already been fitted and in the block. Headers should be back next week from NitroPlate.

  8. First pass 1.25 60ft and when it shifted to high gear broke the input shaft. Which is a glide input shaft. We had a turbo spline in it but my converter out of my Falcon is much better than the one my dad had which was a glide spline. My converter will be sent out Monday to accept a turbo spline.
