It's a 72 -  turn signals were under the bumper.  It's also not a Mach 1, nor does it have the Exterior Decor Group, so no sport lamp grille.

Agreed, the 268H is a very mild  cam at 218/218 duration and should easily pull 15" vacuum. I ran the more aggressive  280H which is 230/230 and it had plenty of vacuum for the factory power brakes.


Either way, it's a nice looking car and appears to be pretty solid. The doors sound really good when closed, not the usual "coffee can full of bolts" sound you hear.
Your probably correct re: enough vacuum with that Cam. I'm going to check the vacuum and I'm looking into eliminating the "noisy" vacuum pump. The car is a very nice and solid example of a 72 and does not sound like "a can of bolts" at all. It rolls down the road very straight and quietly, with no rattles that I hear.

I don't think the HEI is ugly and it was freshly installed by my mechanic to eliminate the hassle of points, a coil, etc. And yes, the Ram Air is compromised and if I keep this car I'll look into making the Ram work.

I'm seeing subtle differences with my own though ...

  • The antenna hole is in drv rear qtr panel rather than drv front wing.  Chin
  • 351 RAM AIR decals are a bit high up the hood
  • The wheel rims are not something I've seen before
  • Loads of 3rd party add ons ...that doesn't bother me as much as it does purists
  • Body dings are easily and invisibly fixable 

...sorry but I just couldn't live with that digga-digga-digga pump noise. My brain cells would incandescently erupt with all my OCD, spattering my brain all over my garage wall at the speed of light...my poor wife would have to clean up. .  Bomb  

The only noise that should ever come from the front of one of these, is the satisfying, captivating, delicate, intoxicating hum of a Cleveland 13726548 firing order, conjugated with the soft flow of air through the radiator, united with the rotation of the fan....ahhh beautiful  Big Grin  , Mozart, Mendelssohn, Beethoven or even Motorhead haven't come up with music this good.  Tongue
Looking into eliminating the vacuum pump, going to check the vacuum to see if there's enough to operate the power brakes (on all 4 wheels) and if so, vacuum pump is gone. Mustang horse is easily removed from cowl (was there when I obtained car) The org. owner put an electric retractile antenna on the back (don't ask me why) but the antenna does work.  Rims were on it when I obtained it too. Obtained from an estate. The digga-digga-digga noise will be eliminated.

I don't mind the HEI either. I run one in mine. But I will caution you on the particular one you have installed. I ran the exact same one (made in china) for about 1,500 miles before this happened. I went with a Davis Unified unit from performance distributors. As you can see the shaft sheered clean off and lets just say fishing the bottom half out was not fun. I am not running a high volume pump either.

73pony - Checked the vacuum without the vacuum pump and the vacuum is sufficient to run all 4 power disc brakes.
THE VACUUM PUMP HAS BEEN ELIMINATED AND REMOVED FROM THIS BEAUTIFUL CAR!!  NO MORE VACUUM PUMP NOISE!

1sostatic - Checked vacuum and it is sufficient to run power brakes all around. The digga-digga-digga has been removed from car, there is no vacuum pump in car now and zero noise, the motor purrs and sounds beautiful now, like the satisfying, captivating, delicate, intoxicating hum of a Cleveland 13726548 firing order that yoou described!
