Ok thanks....some one has thrown a c1ae 9425b intake on the scj that i have ....that sucks

Agree that sucks being a low performance 352/390 boat anchor. When you remove it have the tail gate of your truck close. This will allow you to push it in a slightly, close the tail gate and head to the scrap yard.
Like Grant says the component ID section on the main page of this forum will be your main source. It consists of input from many years of research by our members. It is the go to resource. There is a lot of mis information on the internet and in print with regards to the 428 CJ. This forum and it's members are constantly adding and revising as we learn new things and contribute our findings. Feel free though to ask questions as most of us like a good mystery to solve.
The search function on the top right corner of the forum section is also a wealth of resources. Be sure to use quotation marks. For example "SCJ balancer dates"

     Ha ha, yea I must be the only guy in the world without cable or satellite television. Chasing a mystery beats most television shows. Last year I chased down a real nice set of CJ valve covers. I spied them on a 390 engine for sale on a local web site. No cracks & a good patina.
     Hey Kerry, I've seen 2, count them 2, 427 tunnel port engines on the same site. Both are here in the middle of nowhere. The one is from a member of a family of Ford drag racers that go back to the dad racing in the early 60's. The other is a guy that has given up on building a replica stretched nose early Mustang. I almost sent you the link but they weren't cheap. But not common parts either. Not of interest to me, I can't afford stuff like that, even to try to flip.

    Honestly, one of the best features of this web site is the id section. I've had my Mach1 since 1975, non original motor. I couldn't even get a good idea of what I was looking for yet alone find it until I found this site. I'm not kidding, I buy more correct parts per year now than I had bought in the previous 30 years.
     I realize the temptation to dive right in asking questions. But I would suggest that you take a notebook & go thru your drivetrain parts that you have. I mean the CJ/SCJ specific parts.
     Get that stuff rolling first, they'll take longer to source. The body stuff is a bit easier to find. Write down every casting part number you find. Then look up that part in the id section. Go back to your parts & separate them into categories. You pick, maybe CJ part but not for a 70, 70 part but not CJ, CJ but not SCJ etc. Keep going until you're done. Above all else, don't throw nothing away until you've accurately identified it & decided that there is no way that you'll be using it. Even doing that, if your car is nearly driveable. Save FE parts in case you want to put a 390 or 428 together so you can enjoy your car while you search for what you need. Oh, the sorting of parts gives you some time to think about how correct you want to make your car & to check your bank account. ;D Yes this will cost some money, maybe even alot of money. JMHO

That is pretty much what I did - figured out exactly what I have first.  Then I knew what to chase after, and what parts I would be able to sell / trade to fund the purchase of the next correct part.  List is getting shorter, one piece at a time!

Could you please tell us something about yourself and the resurrected registry? I didn't see anything on the site itself.

Twister, you might also consider starting a new thread with some introduction and link, and maybe some general known Twister info.  That way folks coming here may be more likely to find their way to your page - not that they couldn't get there with some googling, but the more links and info out there the better, right?

Also - Welcome aboard!
