    Went to the farm today and went scrounging in parts stashes. Came out with a dual seat harness and trim plate, a power antenna minus the switch and a box of 30lb and 24lb injectors and what is probably my 4th set of SE badges. Even found my Chuck shock brackets!

    I found the 65mm Explorer tb I never installed and a very rusty 5 lug conversion.

    It's Gumby's fault.

    I had real good luck with Evapo-Rust. I did before and after pictures, but that was before Photobucket went to the dark side.
    If you want to peruse the pictures are here: http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/e...evapo_rust.jpg

    Edit: make sure you paint or zinc plate the parts after removing the rust with Evapo Rust otherwise they rust up very quickly being exposed.

    You've got a lot of parts stashed away.

    Those 24lb injectors should be fine with GT40 heads. Save the 30lb injectors. If you ever go with better flowing aluminum heads you'll need them (my car did).

    There is only 6 30lb injectors. I don’t know if I will ever go the aluminum head route. Probably switch engine platforms before that.

    30lb injectors are probably from a Thunderbird SC, since you only have 6.

    I've thought about Coyote swaps. By the time I get all required parts/a new transmission I might as well go Dart 363 and be done with it.

    But, that 363 is pretty much at a ceiling, whereas the Coyote design isn't even close to it's peak yet..

    If it weren't a question of money, my next project would be a Coyote. Or even a 32v...
