Engine renew for the 66 F100

Post by RewT » 27 Feb 2013, 07:09

I need to replace most of the gaskets on the 390 in the 66, so I decided to pull the motor and put it on the stand to make it easier. I also wanted to clean up and paint the engine bay. The motor will also be getting a good cleaning and some new parts.
Getting a good deal is no reason to accept sub-par work, since making it right costs more later.

The water pump and all the front pully are getting cleaned and sandblasted and a fresh coat of paint along with the valve covers. I will take some more progress pics today.

been alittle busy and havent upgrade this tread, trucks looks really good. I also found out the 390 heads and manifold are acutually a set of 428 matching set worth quite a bit of money. Here are some pics.

Kind of a pain to do this by yourself.

And back in, Thanks again Ed for helping me get everything back lined up.

Just alittle more work and it will be ready to fire, been working on customers cars/trucks so this gets pushed to the side until I get some spare time to finish. It will be ready to cruise this summer..
