Rack clearance to stock 5.8 pan...no wuckers.

I'll start by using the same setup I used on the 351 Range Rover. It's an adapter from BC Bronco's to allow a stock HO upper to be used on the stock truck 5.8 lower....certainly Lo-Po but it fits under bonnet and will get it through rego...
As you can see I'm using all AU front dress and EECV to run both engine and trans together.

Stock headers will work but there's only 5mm clearance to the steering shaft. Obviously I'll be making headers.

XH is better than E-series for firewall clearance...

Yes, except it's a little engine. Nice though.

Just as I found before with a 351 conversion of an EB....sump clearance with a winged sump will require mods to the wings. Stock '69 351 pan shown.

Here was the best option I could find for a sump. It's an ASR XR-F job which I will modify. Competition engines had em for $279. I'll have to slice the angled wings to make the box square and therefore clear the K-member.

I will trim this dipstick boss from the stock 5.0 pan down and TIG weld into the side..

Having done some 5.8 crank encoders before we wanted to do one for a higher performance application that would be bolt on. With that in mind the Innovators West Balancer was used. It is known to actually release more power from an engine, has a bolt on counterweight and it beautifully made and rebuildable...

the counterweight provided and area where we could bolt the encoder wheel on...

This '94-5 5.0 Mustang type is correct for the 5.8 engine..

and here you can see that when the encoder wheel is fitted it will be in the correct alignment postion..
