Does anyone know of a good "do it yourself" Mustang II install on a 71-73? I have the chance to get a hub-hub MII front end setup for $200 and was considering it but I can't really find any good write-ups to see if it is something I want to try. I have found a few "aftermarket, MII "style" front end kit installs" but nothing using an actual MII front end
I wouldnt do it, the front end on these years are pretty good as is. Save that front end for a 65-66 mustang. Or another hot-rod.
1972 Mustang Convertible 351C 4V
1966 Ford Galaxie 7 litre-4speed
It is for space more than anything... Shoving a 4.6L DOHC into the engine bay is a tight fit, even with notched shock towers. the MII setup would allow for a lot more space.
A 4.6 is wider than a 460?
I am not aware of any good write-ups on this swap BUT I am sure it is/has been done, especially considering the fact that the kits are available in the after market.
If I were You, I would go to some of those sites to see what "their" kits looks like and if possible get a copy of their installation instructions. I would think those instructions for the after market kits would not be too much different from the "real thing."
Hope this helps.
Do the RIGHT thing.

That is what i want, a nice smooth engine bay...
Also, sorry if I seemed a little "grumpy" up there in post #5! LOL, that was not my intentions.
