What to do with Old Engine
#1
Now that Don's rebuilt Cleveland is in the car and going through the break in phase, what to do with the old engine. The block is useless, cracked, which is what spawned the hunt for a new engine. Two of the pistons are oversized, so that set is useless. Nobody would buy a used crank or cam. So that leaves the heads. Figured I could get something for the pair, both D3ZE AA in good shape. Don said since they are D3's they could be worth something or nothing. In late '73 they changed the valve size, how many members know that?

I'd try posting all the parts on Craig's List and see what happens. The late 73 and all 74 (Torino, Mercury) 4V engines got the 2V sized valves. Chuck

The heads are currently in my trunk. My mechanic tells me once the break in process is complete and I get to stomp on it I will need some ballast to help keep the rear tires on the ground.

Always thought this re-purposing project was cool.

Aahh, 72Mike beat me to it! I wanted to say "Make a coffee table". I made one from an old 289. Here´s the thread about it:

I seem to recall someone making a table lamp out of one.

My apologies to Mike (luxstang) It's not right that I beat him to this post with his own table. Tongue
