Re: The Ford Engine Pages

http://www.bacomatic.org/~dw/engine/fordv8/mel/mel.htm This is a dead link ... The link works for me. That is not a 64 engine at the beginning though. Other than the power steering pump and tin water pump pulley it also has mounting spot for a clutch pivot bracket. https://suicideslabs.com/dw/engin...

Re: AOD adapted to 390, fit 430?

430 is zero balanced. It all should work unless your kit required some some block modification. I have an FE FMX behind a 59 430.

Re: AOD adapted to 390, fit 430?

Hello,
If your 59 Bird 430 has 6 bell housing bolts it is the same as an FE and will work with FE flex plate. Bolt up and go. Just adjust or make a new kick down to fit the taller MEL.

Re: 60 Lincoln Premiere

Potential purchase if we can come to terms. In looking at specs according to Hagerty's valuation site, the 58 had 375 hp which was cut to 350 in 59 & to 315 in 60. What, if anything can be done to up the numbers on the 60? Are there simple fixes or did Lincoln do major changes to cut the HP? Thanks...

Did you make the carpets yourself? That is a nice straight line along the back seat.
