Fresh it up

Time to freshen up the 390cid in the Edsel. One burnt intake valve for sure. so the heads will come off and be sent out for cleaning, inspection and rebuild if they are ok. Then take a look at the slugs and see if they are in good shape and if the cylinder walls are ok.

No, we never did rebuild it when we took it out of storage. Cleaned it up, Dupont overhaul and just gave it a whirl. It went about 3,000 miles before the valve burnt. Not bad for a engine that sat since 1970.
