Default '66 289 Engine Schematic?

Hi all, new here. Anyways I had a friend from college give me her dads 66 coupe. It needs some help, most of the engine was torn apart; hoses, wiring, distributor cap etc are gone. I'm trying to rebuild it but an engine schematic or blowup of where everything goes would be really helpful since I mainly do work on diesels. Thanks.

Default '66 289 Engine Schematic?

Hello fordblue11,
First - - welcome to the forum. This is a great place to learn and so many responders will help.

You can of course do a google search for pictures of 289's.

I would also add that you may want to get a set of "Shop Manuals" for the car.

These manuals are available in CD or printed version. They come in 5 volume sets and are year specific for you car. These are the books the "Ford" mechanics would use when the car was new.

The CD version is about $15.00 and the printed version is about $50.00.
They cover, electrical, motor, body suspension etc. A great investment if you are thinking of keeping the car.


They are available from places like
Mustangs Unlimited.com
CJ Pony parts
National Parts Depot
Dallas Mustang etc etc.

Also Check out - Mustangs Monthly online for some great Tech "how to's"

I would also suggest you request "free" catalogs from these and many more companies. The catalogs themselves contain great pictures themselves.

Here is a link to the shop manual - -http://www.mustangsunlimited.com/itemdy01.asp?T1=SM2+01&Category=Literature&subCate gory=&CatKey=EMUSTANG

There are so many people here that have great pictures and will post them.

Another tip is to read Veronica's post "Care and feeding of Ponies. When you opne the tech forum - it can be found at the top.

Keep checking this sight I am certain the pictures will start rolling in.

I'll keep watching and I am confident otheres will post pictures. I run a 351c so my motor is a bit different. Just give this a day or so and you'll be ready to start.

If you have specific questions about say the "dizzy) no problem - we can help.

It is great you know wrenches and you will soon be a Pro at Mustangs.

Be well - - work safe -- - Print Dad

Good news - the '65 - '68 manuals are only one volume! They went to five in '69. Oddly enough, the single volume for my '65 is much more informative and easy to use than the five volumes for my '72. I would also strongly recommend '66 Engine Equipment and Electrical Assembly Manuals. These are reprints of what the workers at Ford had to put everything together, and are full of exploded diagrams.

Here's the wiring diagrams:
1966 Mustang Wiring and Vacuum Diagrams

I agree that the shop manual for your year would be best. I keep all my notes, casting numbers, modifications, part#'s, maintenance, etc. in this book so it is a one stop reference. Available ~$50 at most mustang suppliers, 2 I use the most - www.nationalpartsdepot.com
www.mustangsunlimited.com

They also sell the wiring harnesses so if you need the complete harness from the firewall to the engine compartment for engine and lighting they'll have that too.

Welcome to AFM

I agree 100% with all the advice you've been given so far. Those are the places I go when I need to figure things out.

Here are some pics of my 65 289. Though not exact, it should be pretty close to your 66. Hopefully this will get you started putting things in perspective of what goes where. If you need more help, let us know. And again, welcome.
