It may well be the numbers correct heads and other parts. But somebody will need to take it partly apart to see.

Re: Buck tag

Re: 1970 Mercury Cougar Boss engine stamp

Hold on there cowboys. D10E 6015 AA It is a 1971 302 block with an 8.206 deck height. The 289 and 302 blocks are virtually identical. The 289 was phased out during the 68 model year. And yes, that would be in the neighborhood of a 71 block. That casting number would appear on blocks used between au...

Thanks. This is what we found. The engine was replaced almost immediately after the owner bought the car (it is a one owner car).
Look for screw in core(freeze) plugs. If it has the screw in plugs it is a boss block(or a well modified standard block)

Re: close ratio with 3.0 rear?

Only experience I have with like ratios is my T5-Z. Not the best first gear ratio. I know Ford/Mercury built cars that way. I parted one out about 20 years ago. I would recommend changing the rear gears to 3.25 or 3.50 with a traction lock unit.

Re: Oh no!

Right on! As a fellow Miata owner, I fully support this decision. They are not fast but they are so much fun. Love the BRG color and hardtop. If you were to sell the hardtop separately, it would be worth over $1k. Yours is known as a NB, or second generation. I have a NA, first gen., with the pop u...

Re: 1968 XR7G 36x48" Mercury Dealer Showroom poster reprints for sale

This is one of those times where I have to put on my man pants and tell my wife where it will be prominently displayed in our home and not ask "if". I will let you know how that goes, :mrgreen: ! That's funny. Let me know if you need advice on convincing your wife. My older reproduction of this pos...

Oh no!

Some of you know that in September my 2015 Ford Focus was totaled by an inattentive driver, or he was just trying to pass my by going through my car. Well, I got a decent settlement for my car. I had been thinking about what I would replace it with. No rush was planned. After all I still have my Ran...
