351C Cast iron pulleys
#1
I'm working on my '73 Convertible with 351C 2v engine. It has P/S and A/C. I have 2 other '73 Mach 1's with 351 engines and they both have all stamped steel pulleys.
The '73 'vert has a cast iron crankshaft pulley and a cast iron P/S pulley.

I've worked on and around Mustangs for a long time and haven't seen cast iron pulleys like this on any other vehicle. Everything looks to be original. The casting numbers are correct date wise. The alternator is even original to the car.

Anyone else seen cast iron pulleys and know the rhyme or reason behind them??

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.
