New Motor into Old Car

I'm putting an 93 EFI motor (V8) into a 67 Ford. I have an AOD trans and would like to use the original dash and gauges.

Can anyone tell me how the Hall Effect thing works? What do I need to hook electronically to make the Speedo work? Has anyone done this before?

Any info would be much appreciated!

If there's commotion coming from the passenger seat, and nothing but earth going round and round outside the windows,.......then everything is not as it seems!

Afraid not. My newsagency has had one copy in the last 6 or so months, and the only article in it was starting to get into "hooking up new electrics to old instruments". Or something like that.

BTW - I found excellent material for the roof-lining that was cheap and have sewn up a new one for $20. Then I saw your new pics. Bugger

I'll try and have a look in my back collection, as i've been collecting them for a while. I ended up subscribing to Mustang Monthly ($140 Aus for 24 issues, as opposed to $15 per issue...) and it gets delivered to my door!

No worries about the roof lining.

Re: New Motor into Old Car

You wouldn't believe it, but I actually found this on Monday. I printed it out and have read it about 10 times.
The only problem is that the motor was already running, and all they did was to put the upper and lower intakes onto it (not sure about the head).

But i liked the idea of the Ram Pod Filter. That's what I have now decided to do with mine. And turn the intake plenum around.

Has good pictures though!
