Re: 66' coupe I 6 to 348 V8 questions

Ok I have the engine and its out of a wrecked lincoln. It has emmission
stuff on it and the tranny is AOD. I don't know what to throw away and what
to keep. I do have a donor thunderbird that I can use the parts off of for
the suppension but I don't know if it will work or not?

What can I do to the engine for performance? Trade the intake for a better
one change the cam shaft and lifters, holly double pumper or edelbrock 4
barrel and headers with dual exhuast. That should make it pretty fun to
drive right?

Thanks for your input in advance.

What year lincoln? 348? For the AOD you'll need some special adapter plates,
mounts and TV cable adapter.

None of it will work. Now if you had an old Falcon, then you might have had
some interchangeable parts. The T-bird and the Mustang were completely
different cars.

You gotta figure out what you're starting with before you know where you can
go.

Well AFAIK, Ford never built a 305, Chevy did and it was a POS, and there's
no way in hell you can bore a block that far out and have anything left but
a chinese lantern if you put a lightbulb down a cylinder.

Now if it's a stroker motor, then you have something to start with. Again,
the actual year of the motor is important, as then you will know if you have
a carb engine, a Speed Density EFI, or EEC-IV Mass Air EFI. The last being
the most desirable for streetability.

Ok I checked and I have some more information. It was a 302 out of a 78
lincoln. It was bored 30 over and it had a throttle body. The carb with 2
fuel injectors in there.

I want to go low tech since it is going in a '66 mustang. I think it would
be nice to have a engine that can handle top speeds but I like tinkering
with it so I will have to pull out the intake and exhaust and the start
over.

It would have had a carb in '78. You could use any of the aftermarket stuff
for the 5.0 and have a nice motor.

Stick with basics, heads, intake carb, maybe a hotter cam. You need to
decide if you want a stump puller or a high revver, or somewhere in between.

A '78 302 is a smogged down gutless wonder. Like 120 HP or thereabouts. To
get anything out of it you'll need better heads, more compression, and a
better cam.

I have an update. I brought the engine home today and like a dumbass my
friend dropped the engine and broke off the pulley on the water pump. I have
look at it some more but in the morning but I think that it will be fine. I
have to pull the pump if I want to get a new cam in there. And I have to
pull a bunch of junk that ford bolted on there.

I have to pull the ignition stuff from the harmonic balancer. But I should
be able to put a nice distributor in there. And ideas that don't use points.

Simplest and least expensive- Pertronix Ignitor or Crane XR-1 points to
electronic conversion.
Next simplest but better- MSD Ready to Run Billet Distributor. No brain box
necessary.
Expensive but the best- MSD Billet Distributor, 6AL brain
More Expensive but better than the MSD- MSD Billet Distributor but use
Jacob's Electronics Pro Street Kit for the brain and coil.
