Pantera # 5357 - Rocky's 1973 L model

I have been threatening to do a write-up on my build for a while. I see all these great threads, for example the ones by Rob B., Kirk Evans, and and others detailing extensive, very high quality work being done to their cars. My skills are not as tremendous, but I have the help and assistance of a an expert Pantera enthusiast and Hot Rodder (Wade - 4280 / Mark IV) and the resources of this board. My project started as a new motor build, with upgraded performance goals. I wanted to "freshen...Read More...

Dear friends, my weber engine needs more power. I have a standart 351c block with a flat tappet cam with about .06 lift on a ported closed 4v heads. Heads use crane roller rockers .

Hello, I am considering purchasing the MSD Atomic fuel injection kit which has a feature to run the radiator fans and control ignition timing as it is self tuning. My concern is that it requires a coolant temp sensor before the thermostat and the only one I know of is in the block for the temp sensor. It also requires welding a bung for O2 sensor in one of the headers. Does anyone have any experience with the Atomic FI and or have a secondary coolant temp sensor location suggestion?Read More...

Tach bezel removal tips???

All, Having failed to find chromed replacement bezels for the tach and speedo I want to remove the bezels and have them chromed. They are retained with six tabs folded around the back side. The steel they are made from is surprisingly rigid and normal approach with thin blade screwdrivers is accomplishing nothing - I can’t even get a corner of the tabs to begin to bend upwards. Of course there is a limit as to how much force one wants to use considering the glass lens. Have any of you been...Read More...

For those of you with experience installing an ignition trigger wheel on the crank, I need some advice on how to align my pulleys. The trigger wheel is on a 3/4" (approximate) spacer to clear the water pump so my stock crank pulley is about 3/4" too far forward. Also wondering where you mounted the pick-up as mounting space is limited... Thanks for your help, JohnRead More...

Mangusta Shifter Adjustment

I've noticed that if I don't push all the way to the right going from 3rd into 4th it will go from 3rd back into 2nd even though the shifter is in the gate for 4th. I'm sure it's just an adjustment, but thought it best to get advice and suggestions before I begin blindly wrenching. Is there anything I should check FIRST? Is this common on Mangusta's? Thanks in advance MHRead More...
