My 93 Bird has been under construction for about 1 1/2 years, and is done on the out side at last. Still have to get the carb intake sealed off, put in an 8 point roll bar, and a few little things, but I can take it out and play at will now.

Here is a picture taken this week

Here is the 393 engine that is now in it.

BEAUTIFUL WORK! The stance is just right...

One question though. Is the fuel pressure regulator coupled to the fuel log with a hard line?

Who is the manufacturer of the fuel log?

Thanks. The fuel log and carb are from Quickfuel in Bowling Green Ky. The piece between the log and regulator is just a Earls swivel elbow. I used AN8 supply and AN6 return lines. Here is a close up of the fuel log.

Here is the rear part of the fuel system.

The sump is at the rear, then the line goes to the filter, then an Holley style Black pump. Quickfuel provided all the technical information and components.

Do you do this quality/level of work as a profession or just hobby?

Your assembly work is immaculate...

------------------
I am looking for information concerning factory performance/aftermarket speed parts (1958/1960) used on the MEL (Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln) (Also Thunderbird 59/60) Engine Series (383-410-430-462) produced from 1958 thru 1968.

Also older FORD Special Service Tools

Thanks for the compliments. I am a Retired Army Mechanic. I am one of the more senior members here I am sure. I spent 22 years in the Army, then worked at a local hospital in the maintenance department till 98 when I retired. I turn 62 in December. I still prefer the smell of Nitro and burning rubber over the comfort of a recliner.

Thanks... Took it on a short road trip yesterday. What a blast.... Every place we pulled into, we were instantly swarmed and asked what was under the hood. I wanted it to be a sleeper, but when it is running, not a chance
