Hey everyone heres ail update as to the progress on my engine. 
I had a 429 SCJ built and was finally able to pick it up out in Colorado.  
Finally was able to put it on today. 

Here's some pics I'd the process. Hopefully  they are the correct view. 


















Now that its in i have some miscellaneous  things that need to be done so Ii can drive it. Hoses, drive shaft, exhaust, shifter linkage . 

The shifter placement is off jus a bit. Need some advice on fixing that. 
Any and all suggestions are welcome. 



This view is looking straight down in the cab. 

Here's the specs. 
603hp @ 5600 rpm
638 ft/lbs @ 4300 rpm

what shifter do you have? the factory Ford / Hurst has an offset arm bracket.
the round bar is 1972 and the flat bar is 1971 or 1973 i forget which ATM


as does the aftermarket Hurst Competition Plus shifter
