You’re making me like the sound of the Pantera more and more Doug
I should be able to get some pretty decent hooker headers into the ‘70 stang which might alleviate some of the problems you note, I probably still won’t get what you get from it thanks to weight and weight distribution as much as anything else, and I might actually drop in a 2v Windsor (was original H code) and keep the 351c aside when I eventually sell up. (I’ve half an eye on restoring a 71 convertible eventually and that’s got quite a bit more space under the hood a Pantera being way out of my price range for now)
Just to pull back a little to something George said in the original post:
‘It is my hope that someday soon a manufacturer shall offer a steel bodied pedestal mount rocker arm.’
In lieu of that eventually happening, I’ve come across an Aussie bunch called Crow Cams offering steel roller rockers for the Cleveland (screw in stud and plate, 7/16, 1.7 ratio, ironically more info on eBay than their site) anyone had any experience with these fellows? As I guess they’d well outlast the Aluminium versions and the price looks okay.
