    Default New guy

    Just purchased a Saber 7 in pretty good condition but in need of work to make it road worthy again.
    That being said any recommendations for seats? This is not a low budget recommsioning but I don't want to spend a bunch (under $300 per) and trying to identify the Ford OHC crossflow motor. Eight valve cover bolts, none up by the cam sprocket. Anyone make headers for this?
    Thanks.

    Welcome and congratulations on your new purchase.

    Not sure what a Saber 7 is? Any photos, as the name is not ringing any familiarity with me.


    For the engine I suspect it will be a Pinto. One way to identify is to use the information in the Burton Power catalog page 8/9 area
    https://www.burtonpower.com/catalogue-request.html

    I suspect they will have headers too. Once you know the engine, Dave Bean may have headers. Otherwise you may just want to go custom.

    Cheers

    Saber 7's as far as we have been able to figure out were knock offs of Super 7's, look pretty much the same but the cockpit is supposed to be a bit wider, though my butt says no. Built on the west coast in the 80's by h.s engineering that went out of business in 1991.Uses a lot of off the shelf early Mustang (Pinto maybe?) parts (suspension in particular). Thanks for reply.

    Sounds interesting: you should bring it to the Mike & Tom's annual get together.

    I figure this is a one time deal and hope they last as long as the Tillits they are replacing
