    Hey Ramos, what motor mounts did you end up using? I will be needing a set for my 88 TC with a 351C. Thanks!

    I ended up finding a used set of Chuck mounts for a 302. He doesn't make them anymore but I was lucky enough to find a set here on the forum.
    I'm not too familiar with the Cleveland engines so I'm not sure which mounts would be best for you.

    Graham (88turbo) knows the specific of using a truck 5.0 fuel rail in a 2.3 to 5.0 conversion. Basically the idea is that the truck rail mounts to the existing 2.3 lines on the firewall (or wherever they come up from) rather than dealing with the work of making new ones to come up on the passenger side to match the Stang/Bird 5.0 units


    This is what I've read and been told, haven't put it to work myself...


    Ramos, I believe you were the feller who got my Chuck's mounts when I sold off my stuff, right? Glad to see it get used
