Hi Taylor,
Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you have a really nice build going. I think the Tbird front cover will fit fine with the Windsor heads. Don't forget that it actually came on a lot of different applications, so don't let the salvage yards charge you "Thunderbird" pricing. Your Windsor heads will also be fine. Given the amount of work you already have in them, they should make great power. I really like the Cobra Engineering link you posted. I love that fixture and those pins look sweet. The fact that they are using stress relieved steel to manufacture them speaks to the amount of experience they have with the product. It has been a while, it seems like the cost of that fixture is about what the machine shop charged me the last time I assembled one. Moving to a one piece lower sprocket is a good call for your application. I know the technology has improved since I sold my shop, but that seems to be the way to go still. If you haven't already, you should check out this guy's stuff: https://www.youtube.com/user/andrewlavender08/videos?disable_polymer=1. He makes more power than I ever even tried to make. As far as a valve recommendation, I'm afraid I'm out of date on that one. I always used Ford Racing 2V guides on these builds, but I didn't have 9mm pins available. Some of the new polymer guide technology is looking pretty good. I'm glad you have a conservative tuner. I agree that (depending on your chassis loss) he probably could have pulled close to 600 out of that on the bleeding edge. An impressive dyno sheet is fun to show off, but not worth much after the engine has a highspeed come-apart. I would really love to watch your build take shape. If you have time, please start a build thread and post up some pictures and tell us about lessons learned. And remember, question everything.
Thanks for replying,

Good to know the Tbird front cover should fit fine with the Windsors heads. I just ordered one and should be getting it next week.
I'm going to get a set of the 8mm pins from Cobra Engineering and use the Ford Racing 2v guides.

I like that link you posted... That guy really does get some crazy power out of the 2v's.

I'm still working on gathering up parts for my build... It's taking longer than i thought, especially with the COVID-19. I'll start up a build thread once i get everything ready to build.

I have another question for you.
To fit my Kenne Bell on the Teksid block, I need to grind off the knock sensors. Do you know if there is any danger of grinding them off too Much? Or is it ok to grind them off flush with the block?

Thanks

I don't believe you will have any problems with cutting off the knock sensor bosses. The block is pretty thick there. Just stay above the bottom of the whole. and make sure you smooth everything out really well.

Thanks Bill,

I was a little worried about the block thickness.
Glad to know now that the block is pretty thick there

Thanks massacre,

I'm more confident grinding them off now that I've seen how someone else did it.
Always glad to help any time.

Mark Olson did that write up, he was very talented and a great dude. He was in on the Teksid stuff pretty early. Haven’t seen him around in a long time
The knock sensors changed anyways, so even if you wanted to install late model knock sensors, they won’t fit in the Teksid bosses.
