Austin 6.5 years.

I need to see/hear it run for closure.

I would have probably never thought about this and now it's back to haunt my dreams.

RDY4WAR That darker blue looks much better.

WillyT Ya I ended up re-painting the block. I couldn't stand looking at the bright blue. Sprayed it with VHT dark/late shade, looks much better.

RDY4WAR Or just run whatever color you want and ignore what it's called. I tend to paint mine black.

fb93 I dont sign on much anymore so this is a tad late, but this is in response to the blue shown in post #150 being lighter than expected. There are a couple different shades of Ford Blue should anyone else run into this.

Duplicolor 1601 (Ford Blue 1963-1965)


Duplicolor 1621 (Old Ford Blue 1966-1968)


Duplicolor 1606 (Ford Dark Blue 1969-1981)


To add to the confusion, i have seen Duplicolors 1601 referred to as Old Ford Blue or Light Ford Blue, and 1621 referred to as New Ford Blue or Dark Ford Blue and even Ford Corporate Blue, and 1606 referred to as Ford Corporate Dark Blue. Pick them by shade and not the name and you should do ok.

To gasket match, you'd have to increase the runner size about .100" all the way around. From what I can find online, the Vic Jr is gasket-matched at 2.10" x 1.28" and the Holley intake is 2.00" x 1.19". That's a 12.9% difference in square area. I would imagine the intake is actually probably close to the size of the of the minimum CSA of the Vic Jr port around the pushrod pinch.
That's a pretty good point, about the pinched pushrod area. hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I talked to Holley, the 1262 gasket is as big as you can go, the castings were not made thick enough to really hog out the runners.

Yup, picked up an 88 GT about 5 years ago (that's how long this motor build has taken, lol. Thanks to photobucket, those pics won't display. I'll have to track those down.

WillyT A much brighter blue that I thought, but I guess that's just ford blue for ya.

WillyT Some test fitting. Everything seems to fall right into place, more or less. Don't have the head gaskets yet to truly mock it up.

1996 GT Mmmmmm finally. Looks good.
