Mmm, nitrite free uncured Chicken Dogs with Tillammok Cheddar, and some Turkey bacon topper. Organic Corn chips to finish it off :P

Hmm... I wonder if there is a record for lining up sleeping cows like dominoes, and tipping them... Hmm.

Make sure the fries are gluten free and the sauce is fair trade. Did you get the name of the cow?

V8 swap in Mustang II
« on: September 11, 2007, 04:51:34 PM »
same as Pinto right? I have a chance to buy a 302 4 speed from a 83 Mustang, and wanted to install it into my daughters 74 Mustang II (it had a 2.8 v6 but she blew it up) I know the best way is to find V8 II mounts, manifolds, front sump oil pan etc.  Anyone try to install without these parts, I'm a good fabricator so that's not a problem....how about trans etc....see any problems I don't know about...thanks for helping a brother out

This may very well be just like the Pinto since the 74 Mustang II was unique.  It went through a redesign in 75 when they made the 302 an available option.  You may have issues with the radiator fitment, but I am not completely certain.  Good luck!

You will most likely need the small flywheel and bellhousing specific to the Mustang II.  Either that or some tunnel surgery.
1 Pinto, 2 Mustangs, 2 trucks and an 07 Freestyle.  Maybe I should thin the herd a bit? My classic cars are for sale!  I live in Tucson, AZ :D

You wish you were working on your car?  MINE were 2000 miles away! Mine are now for sale and the AZ originals are rust-free.

sure only if it's the V8 version, I have a rebuilt V6 radiator....th ink it will supply enough cooling, if it's an issue with clearance between fan and radiator, how about electric fans instead?  Yeah I heard about the bellhousing issue :-\
