You should have seen what the Rochester 4bbl carb in my dad's Camaro looked like after serving as a rat toilet for 30 years...blech.

We have it *almost* working. Car is hard to start; seems to be a problem with the idle circuit so may just have an expert take a look at it.

1969 Mustang

I took some pics of my carb. It is dirty and probably needs an adjustment. Click image for larger version

That's a two barrel carb...
That shouldn't be on your car...

1969 Mustang

To my knowledge, the only 351 that, that carb came on was ford trucks starting in 73 and ending sometime in the 80s...
It is possible someone put that carb/intake on that engine as a replacement...

I was told the engine is from the early 80s. They didn't say what it came off of.
It is possible they replaced the carb. I am finding parts from different models of mustangs on it. It has a GT gas cap. Grande interior. It is like an Easter egg hunt.

Considering it's an 80s Cleveland I'd honestly look into putting another engine in the car. But if you still want this engine I'd recommend contacting Barnett high performance. A friend of mine had them build his 351 for drag racing and it's still as strong as the first pass, been 3 years. I personally haven't used them but I think it's worth a shot...

I'm going to find the numbers on the block and get the details on it. I've been busy and forgot. I want to stroke it out to a 408 and really concentrate on the low end horsepower and torque. I was thinking about replacing the engine. But figure I already have a 351 block and I'm not sure of the advantage of getting something else.

Personally, I'd go with a 347 stroker, probably my favorite ford carb engine ever...
But if the 351 stays, I'd want to how much power the block could handle...

With that vv carb it is probably a 82-83 351w from a truck with low compression pistons and about 155 horsepower. The 351m from that era were same as 400/429/460 bolt pattern

And you have to find an old mechanic with the right tools to tune that carb. Definitely not a performance part either. We used to replace them with Motorcraft 2V all the time. Some might argue, but you should probably lose the VV

Pull your starter motor off (should be two bolts underneath on the pass side), and your block casting stamp should be behind it. That will tell you everything you want. You can go by the # on the intake, but swapping them is fairly common, so pull the starter to be sure.

I'm going to replace it. I just need it to limp along for a while. I'm probably getting this carb.

I'm not sure on the intake yet. Probably, Edelbrock, but I'm not sure which one yet. I want to focus on torque and low end power.
I'm going to do a full restoration. But it is going to be a slow process.

68 Mustangs are awesome. I want to see your progress on it. I'm kinda in the planning stages right now.

Absolutely, I have a thread on here somewhere called 68 progress. I haven't updated it in a while because I haven't worked on it much till just recently ( kinda got lazy for a bit) I've tried really hard to do mine in stages , however my restoration A.D.D gets in the way sometimes LOL have to really make myself not jump to something else I see that needs attention..you should start a thread for the progress of your 69!

You definitely need to replace what you have. But slow down a little.
You really need to plan this out. It all needs to work together: carb, cam, intake, timing.
You can have a badass, carb and intake, but if the it doesn't work with the cam, it will run like crap.
Figure out what you want out of the engine and start planning and researching.

I am in the planning phase right now. The whole thing is being planned around a 408 stroker. I'm using the 351 Windsor that is currently in it.

Thank you for the advise. I am just planning everything right now. I'm still exploring my car and dreaming about what it could be.

For example today I looked it over and found it has a 9 inch rear end. It feels like they put in new gears and it has traction bars on it. The engine sounds good and runs clean. It isn't leaking any fluids and it started a lot better today. I am going to clean the carb and see how she does.

I don't think it is leaking around the carb gasket now that I am looking at it closer.

Huh, the best thing I have found is a dime and a penny. But you put so much cash into these cars, it's nice to get some back.

No rat turds, but it was among the spider carcasses next to the wasp nests.

It has the old Ford turbine wheels on it. Does anybody know how much they are worth? I was told them might be magnesium. Any thoughts on that. You can reference a pic above to see what I am talking about.

Thrush turbo muffler? That's what my 68 Firebird had on it and it sounded pretty good!

If you intend to slam the car I think the trans am racing wheels would look great on the car...
