Mustang 440 Motor
Posted: 05/11/2010 05:56 PM
I just got an Older Mustang 440 . Motor is out of it , in pieces, some missing , cam and carb . It came with a motor out of some sort of a sweeper . It appears to be a Ford , it has a carter YF carb on it . It hasa coil pack rather than a distributor . There is some sort of a control box to control ignition . There is a three wire harness orange , red, and black , then there is a single black bullet connector about mid harness. If I can get this motor fired up , I 'll try puttin git in , looks like it should work . Otherwise I need to find another motor or parts to rebuild the original one . What kinda mess did I get myself into ? lol Suggestions ??? Thanks

I'd try and get the engine running first, see how you go from there.

The one that was in it is probably worn out, thats why it was in pieces...

Well , I got the motor out of the sweeper to fire up and run . It is a 1990 ford 1.6 . Sounds good . Got wiring figured out . It same system they use on English Fords . Escort with 1.3 liter be be exact , very simple system . Gonna get some pics of progress on this project . Good clean up , then start swapping mounts and hardware etc. Thanks

Well ,his is turning into more of a headache than it looked like. The transplant motor ,although very similar in looks ,lacks many of the bosses and brackets the old motor had . Water outlet in different , exhast , gov mounting brackets etc. Gonna be a lot of fabricating ahead ! Looks like I'll be removing the engine /hyd pump craddle from loader . Then lining up new motor , building new mounts . Once thats done I can figure out exhaust , gov mount, and radiator hoses . Might be some Frankenstein plumbing going on ,lol .

how easily is the motor going to line up with the pump. once that is done the rest is easy because that dictates where everything must go. i am using stock radiator, exhaust, alternator, breather, all had to be modified to fit when in put a 20r toyota motor in a bobcat. i have the ford motor out of it if you can use the parts. im in iowa also.
