    So I recently picked up a 1970 mach 1 with a 351M engine. The guy who had it before me put on an after market fuel injection kit that has a little controller box in the center console. There are a few problems im having but the biggest one is the starting. The car starts fine when its cold...

    I have a '65 fastback that has a 351c from a '70 Mustang installed. To get a cleaner look in the engine bay I want to remove the two hoses leading to the heater. I don't take the car out in the winter, and even if I did the radiant heat from the headers would be more than enough heat :) I...

    Hey everyone just got some questions for experienced cleveland owners. I will begin building and researching fitting components of a 351C 4V. It has been bored .020 over and needs new pistons, valve springs and possibly valves. My big questions are what piston types will fit with the huge valves...

    Hi all, I have a '73 convertible and I'm looking for someone who knows their way around classic Mustangs and carbureted engines. Jersey shore area would be ideal, though I'm willing to travel (central/northern NJ) for a great mechanic. My car is a daily driver and is not restoration-level...

    Hi, I have a 1970 grabber blue mach1 and iv been having this problem for a while now. It will start just fine but when the engine warms up it will just die, it wont sputter at all, just stops. It'll do this to me while going down the road as well. After it dies it always starts right back up...

    I have a 70 M-Code CV April Build date. I bought the car without an engine. I found a Nov 69 351 C 2v motor from a Cougar for cheap, and then found a set of ready to go 4v heads from around the same date. Since this is my first 351 C is there anything different between the 2v engine and the 4v...

    I got an engine for my engine rebuild class and the plan was to build it to throw in my 1967 mustang. I thought it was a cleveland but my teacher told me it was a 351m. After researching it i couldn't find anything positive about throwing it in a mustang. Am i screwed?
