    Now you just need a personalized plate saying "DDYWGN".

    I am gonna put a 351 in it next week maybe and see what happens. The headers have an exhaust leak and instead of fixing...

    Hum.....so.....pictures?

    And, how does the saying go? There’s no replacement for replacement? Or something like that

    The engine isn’t much to look at. Once the engine is in it will look the same, just a little taller. I just want the car to be a little more sorted before I really dig into it. Haha!

    Yup. Lightning lower. I will document visually as usual. I take pics as I go and choose which to post up. A lot of pics don’t make it but I still have them for myself. I am gonna grab an engine gasket set and some valve seals to button up the 351.

    Some of the necessary swap parts.
    In above pic: oil pan and pickup and dipstick, swap headers, flywheel with 28oz. balance, tfi 351 distributor with roller cam compatible steel gear, lightning lower intake, and swap accessory bracket for a/c and power steering.

    I pulled the heads off of 351w and cleaned the piston tops.

    Wow, that cleaned up really nice!

    Yup! I was pretty surprised myself! Also the engine rotates really smoothly and easily. I know it’s supposed to, it’s just that I bought this motor years ago. It is an unproven commodity for me. You never know buying used stuff.

    Thanks Brad! You and I both know what it means to build a project car. I completely agree with you. There is definitely a “pride” when I talk about the Daddywagon.

    You can’t even see the water pump. Especially surrounded by all of the new and shiny parts!!

    Haha, yeah I'm still proud to open my hood, in spite of it. A new waterpump will come with the shortblock rebuild/cam swap that may happen this coming season.

    It’s on the to-do-list. Especially if the 351w works out. Then I’ll probably pick up an action cam. Then I will have to learn how to “walk” a burnout and then practice. Once that all happens I won’t be able to stop doing burnouts and tires and rear will probably have to be replaced shortly thereafter.

    Just find a local tire store with $25 Used tires. Get a $50-$100 per month tire budget. Get a camera man (woman) and go to town!!!
