    Looking good!
  3. I realized that I probably have a b front cover and a b oil pan and flywheel housing on this motor. Do I need to change all those for A stuff?

    Ford blue. I think its a 70's color. It was a very close match to @Wallingford Noah little league baseball team color along with black, and was a color I wanted to do. So it just made sense.
  4. Remove the flywheel housing from the B pan and the upper B flywheel housing and install an A flywheel housing. Done.

  5. Can i swap to an A oil pan?
  6. Probably easier to modify the B pan. If you use an A pan you have to cut the rear for the larger rear main bearing on a B and dimple to clear the rods.

  7. The front cover needs to match the distributer you are running to make it easy to time. You can fool around and set the timing wth the wrong front cover.

  8. big ups to hitchhiker. I couldn't do this without you brother.

    we are moving along slowly. dropped engine in the other night but ran into a couple issues. header we were gonna use is not tall enough for cragar head, and there is not gonna be enough room to fit header with the firewall in way. we still have to order new header (been talking about it for a week now.....) and modify firewall to make it all work. I'm super excited to get this on the road and see what she got. gonna be a fun ride!!

    Did this roadster come from the Emery's in Seattle area?
