MuscleTang mod project thread (1971 M-Mach 1)
The valves look to be ford parts-replace them with good quality 1 piece stainless valves while you are doing all this work.

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

Yeah, they are Ford valves. Everything will be replaced, except the heads and block. I want this car to be reliable and withstand spirit acceleration all the way to the red line whenever I feel like it.

Completed disassembly of block. Found about half of the pistons with cracked skirts. I found couple pieces in the oil pan. Cylinders look okay with some longitudinal wear. Cylinder 4 shows a bit of surface pitting. It most likely leaked water at some point in its life. Since the cylinders are at 4.0 there is room for some boring.
