    Redline Rebuild might be the best automotive series on the internet right now. Simple, entertaining, and cathartic, the series just takes engines apart and puts them back together better. This time they’re taking on Ford’s venerable 289 V8. Taken from a totaled ’64 Fairlane, Hagerty’s team...

    I just created my account earlier today, so forgive me if I'm posting this in the wrong spot. I read some of the rules on tech vs talk and have determined that the following best goes here. I apologize if I am wrong. Note: I am mechanically inclined, but I have no history at all on engine...

    Hi, my name is Chris, I have a 1966 ford mustang 289 V8 4barrel. The car is almost bone stock, except for some new shocks and a battery. As far as I know no other modifications have been made and the car has 97k miles. It needs a full valve job, and I figure if I do the valves I might as well do...

    Hi all, I've got a 67 coup mustang that my parents bought new, gave to me as a teenager, rebuild the motor twice, but has now sat idle for the past 15 years. It needs body work (which I realize I can't do) because of several rust spots. I'm looking for a shop/person that does quality work at...

    Well everyone, a couple months ago I rebuilt my 302 and there's quite a noticeable difference for performance, but It feels like there's more the engine can give, like Its not tuned properly. After driving the car around everywhere for the break-in, I'm curious as to what type of power my set up...

    Does anyone have contact information for Kevin or Tiffany at Laurel Mountain Mustang in Ruffs Dale PA? They appear to be out of business; however their website is still up and they are still taking money from people. When you call either of the numbers on their website it simply states you are...

    My transmission is finally in its death throws of life. All 5 speeds are still operable but reverse is gone. I would like to just purchase a rebuild kit as I don't quite have the coin to get a brand new trans. I don't even know where to begin. Rockauto doesn't seem to carry rebuild kits. I went...

    Aright so, some of you might already know but last week or so ago we (me and my dad) put in a freshly rebuilt engine and transmission into my car. Well, after resolving a few issues that weren't as complicated but now we are pretty stumped. So, sitting in park in the garage or rolling down the...

    So, today we (me and my dad) installed the freshly rebuilt engine and transmission into my car, and got it rolling down the road (fairly quickly i might add) at first everything was going well. But, after going to the parts store and back home the transmission squeals loudly after engaging...

    I'm getting ready to buy a 351w to build into 400hp. My original plan was to go to a junkyard or pull-a-part and yank one out of a 94-97 truck and rebuild that but I found this craigslist listing of a 351w roller cam block that's totally clean and has a fresh .030 bore and comes with new cam...

    I recently rebuilt my Borg Warner NON world class transmission from my 94 v6 Mustang. I`m wondering if I put something back in wrong or what. The car will go in 1st, 3rd and 5th, but it won`t go in 2nd, 4th or reverse. I put new races, bearings, input shaft and output shaft in the transmission...

    I bought a 87 GT AOD. I have a few issues i need to take care of before i start tearing the motor apart though. It starts first time every time and drives good considering. Idles high in neutral and park. Previous owner dogged it out. Theres about 1-2 inches of vertical play in the steering...

    I have a 1996 GT (automatic) with ~150k miles in very good condition other than the mentioned rod knock, which is starting to get pretty bad. It had a head job a few years ago (I forget exactly how much was done), and other than that, it's just had regular maintenance since I bought it in 2004...

    Just replaced the motor and transmission in my 99 (V6/3.8L) and it ran perfectly from the shop to my house (a couple of miles), and then round trip the following morning about 10 total miles in which I did not turn off the car. Tried to start it up later the same day and got nada. I hear the...
