Picked up the engine Friday, it's a Dart 363 from Fordstrokers.com. It has TrickFlow 205 11R heads, a custom ground cam, internal balance and lots of other stuff. Carb will be a Quick Fuel 750 DP. I'm going to dress it out like a 289 hypo, I may even paint the heads to match the block.

The heads are CNC ported and have 2.08 intake valves.

Moore engine photos

Carb is a Quick Fuel 750DP Those are 1982 vintage OEM valve covers, they won't fit with the baffles, Ansen makes some valve cover spacers that will raise them a little over an inch. That's next on my list


I'm using a screen type windage tray and the pump is from Precisionoilpumps.com. This one is a standard volume and the relief spring is adjustable. Also, the gearotor is supported by the bottom cover plate.


Canton front sump pan designed for Cobra kit cars. It's a little narrower than their other front sump pan. If you use the FelPro 1 piece gasket on a Dart block, the gasket needs some trimming at the #4 main. These gaskets have a steel center, so trimming it is a little more involved than with just a rubber gasket.

that silver looks just like my dynacorn quarter panels with weld-thru primer...

I don't know if it is weld through or not. It's pretty coarse, not smooth like the e primer. I've re- welded most of the spot welds at the torque boxes and cleaned all the primers off prior to welding. The weld through still burns when welded and makes a mess. The welds are easier to clean for finishing if all the primers are gone

I needed an engine stand that would allow me to assemble the engine, bell and trans so I could insure everything fit as it should without having to install it all in the car. At the advise of Tubbster1966, I got this engine stand at Speedwaymotors.com for pretty cheap. It originally came in two pieces and I didn't want that so I welded in some " X 1" rectangular tubing. I also ordered the caster kit for the stand. Painted the modification and it's the exact same color blue that Bendpak sent me to cover scratches on the lift. Speedway has the same deal that Summit has for shipping, spend $99 and shipping is free. So I bought enough stuff to get the free shipping. This stand is pretty heavy and shipping would have been expensive.

A couple of minor things got accomplished yesterday. When I ordered the pan, I also got the Canton dipstick. IMO the dipstick tube looked a little cheap so I made another one out of 3/8" stainless tubing along with a bracket to stabilize the tube. The bracket is constructed from a piece of 1/2" stainless tube and a piece of stainless flat stock.


I'm using Fox serpentine brackets and a Sanden A/C compressor. I cut down the steel bracket because it just looked better without a chunk of steel bracket sticking up. Welcome to B.C. Broncos! The best source for Early Bronco Parts for your 66-77 Ford Bronco sells the compressor adapter brackets for less than $20.00 that adapt the Sanden compressor to the Fox serpentine brackets. One of the adapter brackets is bolted to the cyl head bracket.

The Headers came in today, they are FPA headers, with a 1 5/8" to 1 3/4" step, 3" collector and ceramic coated. They are a little expensive but I've never heard a bad thing about them. They even stamp your name and the application into the flange. The step in the primaries is supposed to have a positive effect on torque production.

Fab'ed up the coolant pipes to the heater today, they're 5/8" stainless. I'll finish them after the engine is installed. I'm looking for a mandrel bender for the 5/8" tube so I can get rid of the preformed rubber hose at the water pump.

I like the heater hose set up. I have that engine stand too. Use it for removing the engine out of my Tiger. When dropping he engine out of the bottom bolt it on and roll the engine out. Easy to store too.

What is the wall thickness of the tubing you need to bend? You don't need a mandrel bender, just a hand bender available from any industrial supply house, for tubing up to .065" wall thickness. .035" wall will handle the pressure just fine, though .065" would give more vibration tolerance, it just takes some muscle to bend. You could even eliminate the short braided sections with bent hard line (with different fittings).

Thanks! I was thinking that the engine needed a little bling on top.
I think there are only a couple of engine stands that will allow you to bolt up the bell housing and transmission while the engine is on the stand. I have another one that supports the engine from the oil pan rails, but it won't work with a pan that has a kick out type sump.

It's 5/8" tube, probably .035, That whole thing was made up from mostly stuff I had laying around from other projects. I like to put a little flex line in stuff like this, it will keep from cracking the tubing.
