I would call it a good price with the free shipping. It's deffenitly on the lower end of the price scale.

truck rods with arp bolts

1050 dommy
viktor intake

1.76 gear glide

gonna try to gear is to trap 6200-6500 MAX rpm
will be a total dog but

Just get the converter above the torque peak and it will leave. That's as or more important than the gear.

prob going to run

29.5x10.5 or 28x10.5

going to try to calculate the rear gearing for the best rpm to try to safe the rods ...6200-6500 max
trap speed for 10.00 index is 130-35 mph most cars its seems n/a obviously less for 10.50 index

car should weigh 2800 lbs with me in it guessing car is light being a fairmont

I would hold on the 4:10 gear with a 29.5 tire and a glide might just be what you want

A converter with very little slippage the 4.10 will be close. A 4 speed would be right on the money. Any lower numerical gearing will start hurting you on the 60' ft. A 6.56 :1 final is high for a small engine and lower compression.

I ran that cam in my 69 stang with a 460 and home ported dove heads. I found if you shift around 6200-6000 rpms , it will work the best. pulls really hard at 3800- 6 ish

If upgraded to offshore h beams ...would you get more aggressive on cam ?

Anyone have h beams they wanna sell ? For price probably worth doing for insurance lol

Would you still use that same cam ?

Put the rods in it, and leave everything the same. Those rods aren't the best but they are , as far as I'm concerned a ton better than stock rods you have no idea what they have been through or how many cycles are on them.

If you ever pull it down to freshen, you then if money is there to put flat tops in it and go to a roller and make good power.

When you check the ring gap make sure you use the ring gap KB calls for unless it is smaller than what the rings call for so use the largest gap. I called them when I was setting up my 552 they told me to use the largest gap out of two or I could loose a ring lad.

I have not seen mentioned what valve springs you have on your heads? PEP and Cat come up when the Falcon rods are mentioned, but not much info out there on them.

Roller springs in heads are original and being replaced with new ones

Are you going to have the engine balanced?
