Days like these make me rethink my black interior. Do you that sizzling noise?

I can now click on the recent post and get to that one post, but I then can't go anywhere else on the forum.

Skip, I have the same issue on my android phone, only it isn't even working as good as it sounds like you have it.
I've given up on the phone use for now, waiting to see if this gets fixed at some point.

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 :-\
