I`m rebuilding two `72 Panteras: #2417 and #3771. Any other Germans doing a rebuild? Would be interested in sharing our experiences.

Bei Bedarf einfach melden. lg.Peter
ZF well....Mine got done by ZF Service close to Stuttgart in 2015/16. They have an "old" fellow who does know the /2 from apprentis times design and build.
They did all 5 synch, replaced differential parts and replaced the shifter mechanism as was bent. Parts came from RBT (3000USD)

here the adress info: Manfred Huber is the guru..(he is the tech lead of the place)
ZF Services Stuttgart

Top article...
1) get the castrol Limited SLIP important
2) change oil frequently, as the parts do ROST! - true for the synchs defenately!

3) not mentioned, the PILOT BEARING should be checked as you need the CORRECT sizes, the US stuff very often used from FORD does NOT FIT, too loose. Original is SKF..(see Jäckel)

Hi Husker

Not any type, it depents of course but Campi clones are fine.
I want to use them with semi slicks for track day´s
All V8 Fords from that time looks the same.

The base's needs sometimes work to fitt on the carburetor , and beware if the hight.
Eugenio, as Simon says, almost all factory V-8 Ford air cleaners look identical. Panteras had the removable lid chromed as the main variant, and there were two orientations of the snorkel air intake. Early cars had it pointing towards the left-rear while later ones had it pointing toward the right-front (180 degrees different).

There is a protrusion inside the air cleaner body that orients the assembly off the carb top, but by cutting the little sheet-metal protrusion off the air cleaner body, any air cleaner can point either way. The snorkel indexes to a formed sheet metal 'choke-stove' & flex tube attached to a cylinder head around #8 exhaust (rt. side) or #1 (left side) as needed.
The hole inside the air cleaner that fits on the carb top will be much smaller for 2-bbl carbs. Most 4-bbl carbs and aftermarket throttle-body replacements are semi-standardized at 5-1/4" OD.
Thanks Boss.
What is the correct manifold for my 72 Panty?
D1ZE-9425-BB with the groove embracing the 2 smaller venturi holes or
D3ZE-9425-AA with the groove embracing one big and one small venturi hole? Several on Ebay at the moment.
D1ZE stands for 1971
D3ZE for 1973

Go for a aluminum Boss 35i intake manifold,
D1ZX-9425- CA = whit the EGR modification
D1ZX- 8425-CA = whitout the EGR mod.

all build dates are 1971

There are NO Pantera engine parts, only same time Ford parts .
Look on 1971/72 Mustang parts.
