It doesn't show the internal engine assembly. It shows what brackets, position the different options are and where they are installed on the engine.
As far as the 65/427 engine stuff. I thing you might be wanting to install (or dreaming of installing) a 427 into a 65 ala what the factory drag racers did back then. You'll need to look into buying the few old car magazines that will show how things were done. And, it was always custom fitting. I problem I've had is I have yet to bump into the magazine that shows how the front suspension was modified to do this. Yeah, the shock towers are cut but what else? (another one of my many fantasy car builds.)
Aha. I was thinking that it was the assembly line manual for the engine builders much like the weld/sealant, body assembly, wiring manuals were for the chassis builders. I mean...the 425 SO WAS a factory engine; I just don't recall it being installed in anything off the line in '65. It was installed in the R-Code Fairlanes in '66 and '67, so maybe there would be some assembly information on it for those years?
You are correct, though, in why I was looking into information from 1965.
Back to the drawing board.
I'm looking to install a 425 into a '67 (no modifications to the engine bay) but you are correct in that I am looking for any information that would have been available for converting the '65s over to racing.
You said "the few old car magazines that show how it was done..." Do you have any specific recommendations? You said you haven't run into any that discuss the shock tower modifications but that seems to me that you're saying you've been looking.
I had a bare block that was supposed
to be "clean" but it really would have needed the 3,4 and 7,8 cylinder pairs re-sleeved...so it's back to the hunt for a reasonably clean (all I care is that it isn't a white trash lawn ornament and the cylinders haven't been -and don't need to be- re-sleeved) pre-1968 427 FE block.
To the shock towers:
I would imagine that my shock towers don't *have* to be cut; I mean, the 428 PI fit the bay for the GT500 just fine without. I would imagine if you were wanting to go with an exotic front suspension installation, you'd possibly be needing to but I'm going to go with a TCP coilover to upgrade the front suspension that utilizes the existing shock tower.
