How does the Y block rocker arm design compare to the FE in strength with two bolts per pedestal and no bolt holes in the shaft?

Looks fantastic!  Great blend of technology and old school right there.

I guess no one looked at rocker arm geometry back then.
How high the rocker arm pivot is - no way to get remotely near to mid-lift geometry.(not even close)

The reason factory FE shaft failures occurred is due to lack of shaft support. Not because it was a shaft design.

Neat to see what was thought to be fantastic way back then. Just like 1/2" rod bolts. :)

Cheers

What's your budget, Paulie? What are your end goals for the car?....There's a bunch to be had inside a C6 too.

I believe Mark Williams? offers an aluminum 9" housing.

....with the Ford logo on them?  Should be a C7AZ part number.

Even if they are not the same yours could probably be made to work.  But your buddy has a pretty special car and if he has any ideas of returning it to it’s former glory he should find the correct pieces.

I agree that your buddy has a special car. There is a good resource for info at torinocobra.com.

What's your budget, Paulie? What are your end goals for the car? For a bracket car, best bang for the buck is in lightening up rotating parts and unsprung weight. How about a carbon fiber drive shaft? A Wilwood kit up front would help. Heck, why not a straight front axle why were at it? Replacing the flat glass pieces with Lexan would help. The door windows could be done like the T-bolts ditching the crank and regulators. Fiberglass body panels, not sure what's available. There's a bunch to be had inside a C6 too.
