    Rear axle is a 9 inch Ford... disassembled and rebuilt. Axle housing and brake backing plates were powder coated. 3:50-1 ratio....this axle has been upgraded to a 9 inch positration....4:11-1 ratio....will play with them to see which gives the best street performance.

    Ford Fairlain Project

    The engine was a mess....Its a 390 Ford FE engine....block was badley pitted.....cylinders were not round...crankshaft had major scoring on main bearing thrust face. So it needed an inspection. Took it Roush Industrys an they gave me the bad news. Need crankshaft....block could be saved....heads could be reworked ....rest was scrap... I realy wanted to rebuild this myself but since it needed much machine work they got the job. They found a 410 crankshaft and with the boring it got to 418 cid Pistons were machined ....mild cam....and they took compression ratio from 10.5 to 9.5 as the fuel in this country barely burns. Canadian whiskey has more octane! Dyno'd at around 370 hp with 340 ft lbs of torque at 4800 rpm. Would have liked more horsepower but that can come later. http://s1189.photobucket.com/albums/z439/cdochene/Engine/
