289 HiPo Engine Build-up 40 Years Later
Mark R. Taeschner is an Electrical Engineering graduate of Seattle University (1990) now residing in Washington state. With 21 years experience as an engineer (aka ENGINE-eer) coupled with 25 years experience restoring vintage Mustangs have invoked intense study and research leading up to THE NEED to write this book as a SHOP Manual. The author expresses his opinion only based upon his own experience in engine build-ups for road, street and drag-racing and expresses complete indemnity from any and all liability for the build-ups of other 289 or other engines based upon documented procedures and pictures shown in this documentary. This book is written for educational purposes ONLY. This book is U.S. Copyrighted ? 2005 (TX0006155002). All photos shown were donated or taken during the build process of a stock 1965 numbers matching HiPo 289. This book is dedicated to my sons Cole, James, Joey and daughter Molly. I love you all and hope this book will bring you a good memory of me now and in the future! Special thanks to my friend, Philip M. Schatzer, for continuously proofreading this material. My 1965 “Mustang Fastback 5R09K141894 is a numbers-matching 289 HiPo four speed 4:11 Trac-Loc car.
