While I was in Tampa last week, a buddy of mine had a Muncie that he said I could have for free, just had to get it back to Ohio somehow. Fastenal has a 3rd party shipping program where if you crate it, drop it at their store, they will send it to a store of your choosing. So, put the trans in a couple garbage bags, crated, some spray foam, dropped and shipped. Arrived here in Ohio yesterday.
I pulled the side cover to check things out and this thing is super clean inside. Got my shifter and linkages all set up.

We finished up Dyno night last night, everything tuned, timed, adjusted and ready to drop in the car. Since I did not build the bottom end, didn't touch the bearings, pistons or rings, I handcuffed him at 5300 rpm, wouldn't let him go any higher, he wanted to, the engine wanted to, but I didn't so we didn't. It made 460hp @ 5300 and was still climbing when I cut him off. put down 510 ftlbs torque. Don't know how much more HP it would have made and I don't care. This was all about getting everything timed, tuned and adjusted so that there would be no issues when in the car.
It's only an 8 to 1 comp ratio completely stock bottom end.. Next year will be the year I build a bigger, better engine with more comp and aluminum heads. I just really needed to put a bandaid on the bleeding for now and settle for something I could get done and get the car back together. I am happy with the results and can now move forward with reassembly of the car

Funny thing is I can't seem to find a missed call from you.

Something as simple as a throttle cable, one would think it would be a very simple task.. but, no.. a lot of measuring and adjusting to cut once

Not real happy with the steering and oil pan.. Hard right turn is hitting the pan, going to need to adjust the bump stops

Looks like it's coming back together nicely! I went old school last night and snagged a set of vintage M/T valve covers off ebay for the Mustang. I'm going to have to pull the covers and move everything around. The previous owner put them on backwards so the oil breather is up next to the firewall (under the shock tower brace), making it almost impossible to change the oil.

It's the little things that are getting so time consuming. Simple brackets, positioning etc.. seem to take too much time.
I went with a 18" fan blade and a big block fan shroud and had to make a top bracket for the shroud, cut & snip the shroud to fit then re-position it on the core support so that everything is centered and clears.
