1973 Mustang 351 Cleveland Tear Down Part 2

Moving along with 351 Cleveland rebuild for the 73 Mustang, #ProjectSportsRoof, I’m about to remove the intake manifold.

You’ve seen this 351C with its breathing apparatus removed. That was back when it bent a rod and the valve burnt.


Bent Rod.



That was why I had the heads rebuild.  As a refresher, this tear down is a result of discovering the a bottom end knock after the heads were replaced.

So here is the video for the intake manifold removal.


 Thanks for reading.
