Looking 4 stock pictures of Lightning engine .

Hey can somebody send me some pic's of the 351W(5.8) as it sits in a stock Lightning.
I'm installing a 5.8 in my 68 Bronco and I am interested in how it was set up in the Lightning. Heater plumbing, accessories and TFI mounting on or remote from the dizzy.
TIA, tonto

Thanx, I'm interested what Ford did on the Lightning’s for plumbing to the heater, the Mustang 5.0 has the metal tube coming from the front of the pass. side lower intake over the injectors to rubber lines threw the fire wall, what did Ford use on the Lightning? I've tried to use the metal tubes off the 5.0 on my 5.8 GT-40 lower but it doesn’t clear the front injector, so I'm left using the truck plumbing, doesn't look as clean. TIA for what ever you can do.

Maybe this will help:


There are two rubber hoses going to the heater core, as shown in that pic. If you view around that directory on my server, you can find other pics.

I forgot to mention. I have a Downs Ford upper intake on mine, which replaced the stock GT-40. I've since put on a 1" intake spacer, but everything else should be about the same.
