If your interested in 429SCJ stuff, I have a bunch of it.
I'm not sure Bill did the 429 scj come in a Torino 500? I thought maybe GTs or Cobras?

The 500 has a 429 listed at 370hp in the Stock Car Guide. The Engine Blueprint document lists that as head # D0OE-R. MustangTek identifies it as D0OE-6090-R 70-71 429 cj/scj. It carries MustangTek's "verified" checkmark.

Don't pay any attention to anything but the blueprint spec that NHRA has. They list 2 different valve sizes for the 302 1.79 1.46 1.78 1.45. Remember you have +.005 and -.015 tolerances. If you are careful you can run the same valve in either engine. You can get a Torino to 3410 with driver. We did it.

I did not know of the tolerance rule. I cant find any 1.79 intake valves except for a 4.6 ford

We bought 351w valves and cut them down. You can use 1.78 valves as 1.79,but check them and make sure they are an the big side. 1.79-.015 = 1.775 so you can use the 1.78 valve in place of the 1.79. With the 1.08 carb the .015 loss in valve size doesn't make any difference.

Stock: Cylinder Heads: Page 135 or so.

"Valve-diameter tolerance:+.005-inch or -.015-inch from NHRA Specs."
