looking at a 69 mach1 and 69 torino cobra at a show today. Both were 428 scj without power steering.Did all scj come without power steering? I havent seen a large sampling of cars here, so thought I would ask those that have. Thanks in advance. :)

I know how you are feeling. Imo, I would replace the wiring in the engine compartment, the voltage regulator and solenoid with known good replacements, then the dimer switch on the floor.Or use a new harness from Pete, not hard to install.Good luck,

$=427, press in oil plugs and grooved main bearing early engine. $ is not as clear as my cranks, my mains not grooved mine ground and hand stamped to 5 (as c5--).I have never seen anything except 427 with$ but im no expert others know more. check on F.E. forum they know their stuff.

not an expert but i think red is ford tractor, still a nice find. brass eyelets are an indication of original. :)

Doug ,found some info on the old F.E. forum. the Ford cam C3AZ-AA or the 306-306 or sometimes the 274-274 was sold by trw or melling. Crane Fireball F294, Isky #3351350 Comp Cams #33244-4, 270 -270 s. John V at total performance may have a nos if he is still working.

Holman moody specs are listed as the old Ford specs were. the cam companies dont use them. The C3AZ-6250-AA is the stock Ford cam used . It is the largest cam that can be used with enough vacuum for power brakes. Going by memory but think the comp cam is 270. Subject was gone over on old F.E. forum. Dont know if archives can be checked. Royce Peterson will know, very good on the 427 engine. he posts here often.

Thanks for the grate up date Pete. Your work and dedication are amazing. 20 years and counting. way to go! :) The history on the dealerships is always interesting.

i had the same experience. rummaged through some old parts and found original line and spring clamps. original much tighter, :)
