Hi StangNet! I’m new to the forum. I have a 68 in transit as new project car. I’m totally stoked to own a piece of Pony history!

In preparation for arrival I’m rounding up as much as I can so I can get right to work. It has a 351W (stroked to 387!) that I’ll need to pull. Does anyone know what the correct bolt size and thread per inch is to mount a load leveler to the head? I’m planning on pulling the transmission attached so I’d prefer to bolt to the head and not the intake.

Many thanks!

Accessory bolts on heads are either 3/8" or 7/16".

We just installed one in my buds 65 with 289 and C4 attached and used only a carb lifting plate. Went in perfectly. Would do the same way again.
