460 into '70 mustang

I'm installing a 460 in my '70 fastback. Here's a couple of choices I have:

Sitting, waiting for the additional VC breathers I bought on Ebay. The used
shortblock has a bit of blowby, and the cool vintage-looking round-top
breathers pop off when I get above 4K. Ugly but rugged factory twist-lock
breathers don't pop, but I figger I'll give them some help. Meanwhile, the
new Arrow shed has been getting my attention in weeks past, and this weekend
it's the '81 VW Rabbit diesel truck I just bought. I gotta yank the C4
outta the Montego and find out what went "180" with first gear, then sell
the car. That and fixing the various PO bush league repairs on the Rabbit
will keep me outta the '58 for a while. Sure looks pretty sitting on my
1700 sq/ft of new concrete, though.





And in keeping with recent posts by non-regs, "I'm schpechull! I'm
important somehow!!! Notice me, daddy!!!"

Damned horsepressure. Well, sounds at least like it's not puking oil
out the covers any more? Sounds like you're very close.

Meanwhile, the

Einen RancheroSnchieff!! Whatever, I've always liked those lil old
things. =) I've threatened getting one to replace the Tempo, in fact,
as a good, economical shit hauler.

I can only assume you mean "totally ****ed up" by that.

Quite a bit keeping you busy. I've got a number of OT projects and
repairs to do, too. New garage? Kewl.

I hope you get that crankcase pressure problem solved with the 460 soon.
It seems par for the course for a conversion like this, which is to
say, tiresome and trying but ultimately worth it... plz give an update
once you get the new breathers on it.

WAHHH!! Yeah, what useless little bitches. It's embarrassing to read
the relentless crying. It's fun to roust their ire, but that too grows
tiresome....

Please give updates, I know the travails you've had wit dat fitty aight

Makes good gumbo = )
