I was told the engine was too heavy for the suspension. The car also has a lifter tap? Is that an easy fix and ok to buy?

matt we are talking old motors, that being said the c is not any heaver than a w [they are both small blocks] and even a two bbl c will run circles around any w motor. the c was only made for about 3 years so parts are obviously not to plentiful but basic performance stuff is still available at any good speed store. the c was the up step from the boss 302 and was originally designed to be a full blown race motor but ford dropped out of the horsepower wars and that killed all the other big guns they had developed also. if the motor is in good shape you could easily sell it to a restorer and upgrade to a more modern system. however don't let anyone tell you a c motor is a dud. it kicked chevys a$$ for many years and one on one the chevy 350 could seldom beat it.

The Cleveland had better flowing heads then the Windsor, but a weak lube system that made the bottom end of the block unreliable. The W, on the other hand, had a solid oiling system/bottom end, but low flow heads. When Trick Flo came out with the first aftermarket heads for the W, they cured the low flow problem, and pretty much nailed the coffin shut on the C. That's why the big C is now history..... So, if you want to put $$ into your C, that's up to you ........
