How cool is that!!!!!! A boosted 4 barrel 6 shooter. Bet it makes tons of power and the block and cranks are nearly bomb proof!!

Back in the day Ak Miller was a big Ford 6 builder. I have seen one of his motors with six motorcycle carbs on it!! Way cool!!

Just to mess with people, I would custom make a rear valance with just one GT exhaust cutout and chromed tip.

I like the idea of a 5 speed.

It has a brake booster, does it have front discs? No power steering?
I like the dual exhaust and 5-speed ideas. Iíd probably use Robís exhaust tips, they look meaner.

Arlie,
5 speed would be bitchin!! And will increase the gas mileage and fun factor!! Dual exhaust with a split header system would be cool!!

Bring that six shooter over!! We can have a bunch of fun with your money!! My favorite!!

Iíve heard horror stories about changing a ring and pinion. Is it really that difficult? If I switch to a 5-speed some day Iíll need to change the rear gears.

The I6 axel is not a removable carrier. I have not changed gears in one, I opted to find another complete axel with a better ratio. Most automatics were 2.82 and the manuals were 3.25. I may have a 3.25. It really made a great driver out of our 67.

The rear gears were changed to 3.20.
Someone also installed Pertronix ignition but didn't use a 12V source. Is there a good source under the hood or am I going back to the ignition switch, or fuse box?

Neil,
You posted this in another thread.
....I opted to use the connector @ the firewall (in the engine compartment). It's the square connector, wire #904 in the wiring diagram
Did you splice into an existing wire?

Today was spent fixing an exhaust leak.
Next are valve seals and a timing set.

Does this help?

I was hoping that video would answer your question. If I remember rightly, the black and red wires go to your ignition coil. The red one is the power, and the black is the ground.

Arlie I see you have the exhaust manifold off. When you reinstall it do not use a gasket, six cylinders are prone to breaking manifolds when a gasket is used. Ford designed a metal to metal fit so the heat in the manifold can transfer to the head. I clean the head surfaces and plane the manifold. I use a Eastwood brush on ceramic manifold paint and coat everything including the mating surfaces. This help further promote a good seal. Also be sure to torque to spec.
BTW the same is true for V8 engines but they just do not break as easily.
