Had to make this plug and weld it on from the inside...

Image

Had to grind down this bolt boss and counterbore for a cap screw...

Image

Haven't got a mill so I kept drilling incrementally to 0.5mm from the head diameter then modded a drill bit for the final cut with flat base for the head of the bolt...

Image

Couldn't get a 5/16" x 135mm cap screw so I welded an 8mm stainless cap screw to a 5/16" bolt thread...

Image

Gettin there...

Image

Had to cut this brace off the bonnet for clearance. I think I can move it side ways to clear the T-body and weld it back on. As it is the TPS and breather tube hit the bonnet so unfortunately I'll have to educate it with a hammer or cut a hole in it :( ..

Image

Had a hell of a time trying to find the Fuel reg vac line which uses a really big barb on the intake side.. I had to borrow this one with a view to replacing it. Thanks BPT!

Image

And this curved one(which is too short here) on the underside is also unobtainable!?...

Image

It's on there!...

Image

Just test drove it and it has a more effortless feel to it, like the car is lighter. Bloomin marvellous!

Thanks Greg, Yeah it does go good. I got one of those Hero3 cameras and that was my first test of it. It was in the waterproof case hence the muffled sound. I'll do another soon with tother open case.
I'm lookin for another engine to build. I think this one has broken rings...the catch can fills up with oil.
There's a mob in Qld getting a few F4 short blocks in soon.

Ok this thing has been goin great for nearly 2 years now. Still haven't sorted the transfer shifter. Not that it stopped me from going off-road, I just did everything in high range without a diff lock and still drove around lots of other so called 4WD's with lockers and lift kits to the wahzoo!? so I've ordered the Discovery2 cable shifter setup from Ashcroft transmissions. I've also yanked the engine for one I'm building from an F4 roller lifter block with GT40Y alloy heads and 1.7 rockers on the stock truck cam. Was going to get a 408 short from the U.S. but they're so busy there's an 8 month wait!? Plus I'll need much stronger diffs and axles with one of those!
I've just swapped the old 3.9 MAF for complete front and rear axles assemblies from a 96 disco to make it a little stronger than the 10 spline jobs.

Image

After I bought the CDL(Centre Diff Lock) shifter assembly from Ashcroft it turns out I can't use the shifter part afterall but the rest of the cables and linkages I can.
So here's a roughy of my dual shifter idea...

Image

Machining the stainless shaft...

Image

Finished shaft with dual ball races per shifter...

Image

It's going to sit about here. I ran out of material to keep going so, more soon...

Righto update time;
Finally put together the engine. It's a std bore low k '97 F-series 5.8 hyd roller block. We checked it out and nothing needed doing. So I reassembled it using new bearings, Double roller timing set, and Mellings std volume pump. I re-used the near new Balancer and flexplate off the old engine. All 5.8's are 28oz imbalance.

Image

Here's the block engineering number for those trying to find one...

Image

The heads are stock Ford GT40 Y302 aluminium. Not as good as the X302 head but still a good head with excellent port velocity in the low to mid lift range. They come with 1.94"/1.6" stainless valves and good quality double springs,retainers and locks. Plus they only cost $1300 complete for a pair from Ford racing

Image

Beware though. They don't come with the thermactor plugs but you can get them from the likes of Pioneer for about $8. Because they are a thread within a thread as it were, with what looks like screwdriver tangs they aren't easy to put in....

Image

So I made this little tool out of a cap screw...

Image

Now it goes in easy...

Image

I used custom length Trend pushrods, Crane 1.7 roller rockers for a little more lift and Felpro 1250-S2 intake gaskets which have a steel sandwich plate inside and are re-useable and stock Ford roller lifters.

Image

Don't forget the re-inforcing rails and a one piece steel sandwich silicone gasket..

Image

Flexplate on...

Image

Ready to go in...

Image

It's been running well now for a few months. It's got torque in spades but could actually do with a bigger than stock cam. At some stage I'll probably go with a Comp XR264-HR14 cam I've used before in a coupla Falcons with the same engine spec.
Oh and I still haven't actually tuned it...still running on a stock EB GT 5.0L calibration.

Nice!!

I thought all the 5.8 roller blocks all started with F4TE, my last one did and the one I have in the car now does.

I'd luv to see this is the flesh one day, would be such a beast to get around in!!

Cheers Jimmy,

I think the very last F4 blocks were minus the T. It's been suggested that they were made in cleveland plant towards the end but I have no way to verify this.
Come visit then.
