small block wanted

Greetings,

I'm looking for a small block 302/308 Ford Windsor V8 and matching 5 speed auto box. Can get the latest Mustang spec motor and gearbox but won't fit
unless I do some cutting which I don't want to do. :cry:

Thanx

Re: Propshaft rubber joint (doughnut): Ford Granada Mk1

Hi,

PartQuip part number AR5062 - had to replace mine a while back and made a note of it when Spares Shop ordered it for me. Had to wait until next day to fit it. :|

OK, I've bit the bullet and got a 289 Ford V8. :roll: Now my question is which is the best gearbox to mate this engine to? :twisted:
Target vehicle is an AC Cobra.

Re: Dual carb manifold

Had a look at the Roland website. Picture on there is scary - manifold quality looks to be under par. VW forum reckons to stay away from them. Burton power in UK has got a nice setup but ZAR/GBP exchange rate ruled that out very quickly. :evil:
