71 Mach1 rebuild
Welcome from San Diego California. Nice job!!!

- Mike
Well time for a small update, I have been slowly been getting the parts together so I can assemble the engine and I now have all the parts need to start assembly. First up a photo of the parts got so far to build the engine.

Now with the new cam bearings installed.

There are a few more jobs to be done to the engine, such as install the new correct length pushrods, install the new oil pump, install the rockers when the pushrods are fitted ( this lot can only be done when the part arrive ) and then I have got to get the injectors and drill the fuel rail and inlet and fit them ( and fit all the electronic sensors for the EFI conversion ). So near yet so far, but at least the end is in sight as far as the engine is concerned.

The final build on the engine stands as:

351c bored +.060
Crank reground and worked on
Speed pro hyper pistons
Eagle con rods
Lunati 411A1 Cam (30320511)
Crower EDM metered flat tappet mech lifters
Cloyes 9 way adjustable roller timing set
Trick flow pushrods
Comp cams guide plates
Pioneer harmonic damper ( SFI rated )
Flowkooler waterpump
Flowkooler high flow thermostat ( correct  type )
Four seasons water neck
Speedmaster alloy cylinder heads ( been heavily worked on )
Lunati valve springs ( to be  fitted when the cam is bed in )
matching caps for above springs
Speedmaster inlet to match heads ( to be modified for injectors )
Speedmaster four barrel throttle body ( not that bad just needs a little finishing )
Comp cams lash caps ( the speedmaster stainless steel valves do not have a hardened tip )
Scorpion 1.73 roller rockers
Ford motorsport alloy rocker boxes
ARP bolts used in all the important places
ARP hardened oil pump drive shaft
Sealed power standard oil  pump
Oil restrictors fitted to cam bearing feeds
All bearings are Clevite ( the crank uses HD bearings )
Modified Blackjack headers

The engines compression ratio worked out at about 9.8 to  1 

I do not have a clue as to what power the engine is going to produce but I will be happy if it makes about 400hp at the crank.
After I have got this finished it will be installed in the car and then I can get to finishing the interior and doing the one or two small external jobs which need to be done ( such as changing the torque converter to match the cam and changing the rear axle ratio to something a little better ).
Great. Nice progress.

I'm pretty sure i previoulsly read about your build on MOCGB and reading it again its no less impressive, excellent craftsmanship. I like the re-use of parts, if I had your skills I would reuse more parts rather than buying new, will see where I land. Also gives me more motivation now to crack on with my car restoration. Cowl repair was awesome.
Nothing beats a clean and newly rebuilt engine.
