My stupid builder...seeking ORIGINAL 351C Piston & Valve & Spring
#1
I ALWAYS keep my old engine parts...I probably got a set of 1973 Original plugs for my first Mustang.

However, I let me guard down with my engine builder. The first engine he did for me, I got everything back: Pistons, Rings, Valves, Springs, Cam, Tappets....

This time, I got nothing. So...I am looking for USED original 351C Piston(flat top with relief), valves, springs, tappets.

I am not too concerned about condition...I am just interested in the ORIGINAL parts for my "library".

Thanks.

A few questions are you going to use this stuff or are you going to use it as shelf ART. What size pistons do you want? standard, .017,.030,.040. On your valve train wish list do you want performance springs or old single springs and how about valves 2v or 4v?

Shelf/Teaching art...I hope to be able to teach my grandkids about all the crap that is in an motor. I also want to show how some things have changed, like the pistons used to be cast/forged steel and now they are aluminum, and the rockers are now roller instead of the "slide". There is history to be taught.

I guess you could say with all the overhead cam engines, pushrods and lifters are going away as well.

I am trying to get items original to a 351C 4V, simply to compare it with the motor I am building....this is what I took out, this is what I put in, here is why it is different.

I am looking for something out of an original motor, so standard. I have photos, but no material.

Whatever was stock in a 4V, with one exhaust and one intake valve.

With the valves, I can show how they used to be 2 piece(not sure what the reason for that was).

Thank you very much for asking.

Sorry I can't help you, James. My builder pitched my pistons and I'm still using all the head parts.

I am just looking for one of each. Good used unclean parts. Thought a bent rod, burnt up piston might be good to. Just looking for scraps.

James, are you in a hurry? I have a used piston and rod (actually all 8) from the new short block I will be building for my car. Valve springs are the same from 2v to 4v, visually anyways. What I am saying is if you can wait a couple of weeks until I'm home I can come up with a few parts, maybe not a stock 4v valve.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.
