Those are some of my mounts and they're steel, and the bushings are 70A durometer poly. If you wanted to do solid in place of the poly, you'd want to have a way to locate the bushing on the larger ho...

Finally was able to drive it today (Had to go to the office, and the weather is nice). Pulls clean with no signs of detonation. Now to get some of that timing back into it... ;)

Yeah, I just had to reset base timing on my TBird with the old MS1 w/Extra set-up. Set to "Fixed Timing" in TS, by however means needed in the settings. 20* was recommended. Keep the SPOUT in and s...

Well, finally got every thing together and we're firing on 4 cylinders now. I found a little "wobble" in the current old dist, so I grabbed my stash of stuff and found an old, unused refurb dist an...

There's probably some truth to that, but not enough for me to fret over for this engine. I had one of these let go 20+years ago and dropped in used replacements without issue for years after that. ...

Yeah, I didn't *really* think the TFI would be the issue, but stranger things have happened. I lost a dist/aux gear set YEARS ago, but haven't run into it since. There is some rotational slop i...

Seems like an odd question, but I've run into an issue on the TBird where it's dropped out spark on the #4 cylinder. The car has had a MS1 w/extra unit running a TFI distributor for a while now. Th...

You'll just have to get creative. I just installed a old, modded Steeda 5-Link set-up on my Tbird. I made new upper links, new RUCA chassis mounts, modded the panhard chassis bracket, etc. I was...

Just looking back at this. TL; DR verison Those mounts you have are fine. There is also no way to incorrectly mount the brackets to the engine. They will only fit one way on their appropriate...
