Ok. So Friday the man from the courier company delivered these:


So then Rocket had a clearance sale on Saturday so I went and bought this:


I got some deals - H bean rods for I beam price, a TKO600 for a few hundred off and discounts on every other part. Happy days. The pistons they supplied are Sealed Power so they might get returned. I got SRS and Sealed Power mixed up at the counter.

Still have some purchases to make so will be happily ebay-ing tonight and getting the rest of the bits.

I just had my clutch built by Jim, which I think you already know Shaun, but he was closing up shop for a month while he moved premises. He may have already done that and re-opened by now but give him a call to find out. Great guy to deal with!

I won't need a clutch until end of the year.

House renovations are taking priority. I can buy things and ask questions on forums but not allowed to touch the car (sad face)

You wont need to touch the car to buy a clutch. Just have your wallet and listening ear open. Jim likes a chat. I learnt a lot about clutches though.

Very cool collection of parts. Nice photo of those Dart heads.

Indeed do send the Seal Power pistons back and get the Probe SRS instead.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Great guy, I've had a few clutches from him over the years. I once a Torana XU1 fitted with a falcon crank, with holden ends welded to it, 232 cube red motor, back in the 80's could not keep a clutch in it. At the time Jim had a Fiat parts place at the Gabba on Logan Rd, called Italia spares and did clutches as a side line, haven't got a clutch any where else since. Peter Tighe ( Ivan Tighe's son, Tighe cams ) helps him as well. He has made clutches for me for Mg's, E type jags with Tremec's you name it. Blown injected SBC with Tremec etc. Lovely guy very cost effective.

Jim was still trading as Italia Spares when I sent payment through to him.

I think I must have spent an hour each time I was on the phone with him. We went through all kinds of details and then nutted it out more later on. Very easy to deal with, a genuine guy. It was a pleasure.

I'm now looking at water pumps. Dumb question time: the motor is an '85 Bronco unit. Do I need to change the timing cover to suit an alloy water pump? I am looking at buying a GMB alloy pump (125-1700 from Summit) so not sure if this just bolts straight on. Do i need a matching timing case cover as well?

The car has factory air and steer so want to retain those. Any issues with pulleys, etc?

Sorry for stoopid question, I have like 4 Windsor build up books but none cover this.

Depends on what fuel pump you use, most of the injection engines dont have a mechanical fuel pump mount. But other then that they are the same, having said that the last 2 engines I did I had to smash the covers off anyway, as they were seized on the long water pump blots.

Also, you need to decide if you going left or right side pipe outlet and reverse or normal rotation (often related to V belt or serpentine belt system). Then you have the long nose or short again usually related to the belt system intending to use.

Unless you get it all accessories as a kit then your often going to be looking for pullies to suite or make adjustments.

Fuel pump - electric
Water pump - Passenger side (LH) outlet
V Pulleys as per original

What are the measurements of long and short please? I'll be reusing the original lump's pulleys so will then work on them to source a pump.

Just get a Edelbrock water pump

www.summitracing.com/i.../make/ford

The short pumps were for the serpentine systems.

You also have one last item - does your Pan oil check stick need to go through the timing cover (as the early blocks do)?

I would assume so then you simply use an early cover and block off plate for the mechanical fuel pump hole.
