351c - Identify this part??
#11
I have a 72 351 C that came from a mach and it has that same set up including the washers. 3 to be exact. I date coded my engine and it is a 72. Strange mine would also have 3 washers. The car it came out of was a manual from factory. Maybe these were sloppy and this was a known fix back in the day. I have seen stranger things. lol

If you ain't afraid (even a little) then you ain't going fast enough!

I would set my engine back 3 inches in a heart beat if I was doing it again.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

asusnz;245189 Wrote:Hello, wondering if anyone can identify exactly what the part I have circled in orange in the picture is? I know this block came from a 73 Mach 1 that had a manual transmission. I'm thinking the clutch is connected in some way here at a guess? The car had previously been crashed I recall seeing the front cross member pushed in on the drivers side before that engine came out. That might explain the thick washers. Would be interested what others think?

OK see if this helps. I added 2 pictures to the 71 mustang gallery under Stanglover. They show the bracket, Z bar and the tapped hole in question on the block. This is on my 71 Mach 1 factory 4 speed.
If your block has a correct positioning, then it is not a mustang as far as I can see. Maybe a Torino???? Just guessing now. I can stand correcting on this!!

That's great Stanglover those photos are useful. The block is stamped D0AE-L date code 0L16. The engine was pulled from a 73 Mach 1 though not original to that car. It had a Toploader connected to it but no tag was on it or any useful information externally to say what it is. Many of the parts on the engine were from different year Mustangs and was not setup in a factory standard way.

That block is at the machine shop at the moment when I popped in two days a go I noticed this part had been screwed in. I asked the engine builder why and he said that it was installed originally before cleaning up the block. I thought that it was an odd part to be there. Again Stanglover thanks for the photos worth more than a thousand words to me!

Hi asusnz.
I did find a schematic of a clutch linkage on Google, that looks the same as the one you have. I googled "1973 mustang clutch parts", or something like that and found 'pictures of 1973 clutch parts' They were not the best, but 1 was clearly similar to yours and it was for a truck application and that makes more sense than if it were Mustang. Perhaps that's where the donor motor really came from, but was jerry-rigged into the Mustang. I admit I'm not too familiar with the 73's and I suppose it is possible that Ford may have changed things, but really unlikely. I guess that's my "cover my a**" statement!!
Did you say what you're putting the motor in? I'd be interested to see what you do eventually.
Glad the pictures helped. I just have to figure out how to upload and add to posts................ HELP anyone!!
That's a Nov 16th 1970 block you have there. I wish I had it for my Mach as it would be closer to being date correct. I too have engine woos. Also, my T/L has the vin consecutive # stamped on the top flange. If yours does, you can get an approx. date of when it was built...maybe. Kevin Marti's book " The Mustang and Cougar Tag book" list all the info you need.
