I bought a 62 Ford Fairlane 500 last weekend. It has a 221ci windsor motor. The car appears to have been white with a red / white interior. The goal with the car is to get it running and drivable for the a short while until I get all the legalities fixed w/ the nissan pathfinder. Once the pathfinder is good to go, I'm going to do a resto-mod project w/ the car. So far the 11 year old loves the car too, so it may work out to be a project we can work on together and in time, when the 3 month old get older, he can join in. Eitherway, pictures below are from the day I picked it up. Below is a picture of the engine as of last night. I've gone through and replaced battery cables, starter selnoid, starter, distributor, spark plugs, spark plug cables, coil, fuel filler hose, inspeced the tank for leaks, all rubber lines between the tank and carb, drained the oil, gas, and radiator and refilled them appropriately. Also, installed the carb. It was in the back seat recently rebuilt. I made sure to clean the machined surface w/ a razor to insure a good seal. Well, last night it started up w/ the aid of another vehicle jumping it. It ran but was hurting. I'm looking for someone that may know a thing or 2 about this car or engine. I'm trying to figure out vacuum lines. I'm under the impression there should be one running from the passenger side of the carb to the diaphram on the distributor for vacuum advancing the timing. Also, the auto choke isn't working and I'm not sure where the choke diaphram on the carb is supposed to be running too. I'll also be taking another plug at getting the timing right tonight if I have time. I'm thinkin that I should be able to loosen the pinch clamp at the base of the distributor on the block. Then I should be able to spin the distributor to get it in line w/ the timing. Either way, let me know your thoughts on the vacuum lines and spinning the distributor. Maybe I'll have this thing on the road in the foreseable future.
