    Gas Pumps I am still chasing down the rough engine problem I have. Got my Dizzy back from Glazer Nolan, Dan replaced some missing pieces amd set it up to stock specs. Still runs rough when I hit the throttle. The one item I didn't replace was. The plug wires. Will try that today. When I had the engine and trans out to replace the leaky trans gaskets, I replaced the flywheel and clutch, they where fried. I am wondering if there is an imbalance with the flywheel and clutch assembly. Still problem solving. Bill

    Hello Gas_Pumps, I was wondering about something you said in your reply, I was curious as to why a 66 valve train is better than the 65? I am looking at buying a 66 289 motor/trans out of a ford falcon which I can use temporarily in case I need to rebuild the original motor, which it seems like I might have to. If I do this then I can use the Valve train out of the 66, I am just curious why it is better, you also suggested using valve guides if not, just curious why?
    I am new to building motors, just trying to be as informed as possible.
    Thanks, Devon

    Sorry for the delay. Have not been home for a few days. Let me check it again for condition and I will get back to you. I don't think it has any cuts. Will see what I might need that we could trade. May be a day or two before I get to the garage.

    I could really benefit from the 65 wiring harness. Let me know if you still have it and what would be an acceptable trade, cash or other parts you may need that I have.
