  3. After changing the water pump, I no longer had coolant pooling on top of the timing cover behind the pump, but now I have oil pooling! Got everything cleaned off, then started the car and watched. Started seeing oil begin weeping through a tiny hairline crack on top of the timing cover and running to the area where the pooling was located. Stopped the engine, cleaned everything off, sprayed some carb cleaner just to wipe it down, and then applied a small thin bit of Quick Steel high heat putty to the crack and smoothed it like drywall mud. I let it sit for two hours (package said one), and then fired it back up. Voila! No more oil pooling! I feel good about my fix, as the timing chain cover does not have a lot of pressure to it, and it was just a tiny crack. That was 4 days ago. I've driven it every day, and have been checking. Still no leak! Hooray! The picture show the pooling, although there was usually much more than this! The crack was up at the top of the cover, near the bolt.
  4. Last week
  5. And, due to my shorty headers, I could not run my brake lines on the passenger side of the master cylinder
  6. because with the dual diaphragm booster, the stock master cylinder, and the new equalizing valve and bracket I had for my 4 wheel disc brakes, the setup hit my shock tower
  7. pw520a

    magnum 500 rims

  8. The BF lettering is a pain to keep clean due to the leaching the coopers lettering is holding up 10 times better
  9. He did just have a birthday you know, so maybe he bought a bottle with the intent to send it, but now can’t remember where he put it?? lol
  10. No he did not. Laggard, but I expected he'd not send one.
  11. According to Barnett who is a builder that frequents this site and has done 50+ Mustangs: Go with 15x7 with a 4.25 backspace (back of the wheel to the mounting surface) with a 5 x 4.5 lug pattern. He recommends Specialty Wheels. At one time the shipping was $16 per wheel if ordered individually, but $50 per wheel when ordering four, so you will need to review current shipping practices. The largest tire on the front that won't hit slightly under some conditions is a P235/60R15. If you want "The Look" go with BF Goodrich TA radials with raised white letters. The second most popular tire is Cooper, which actually gets a slightly better satisfaction rating.
  12. Give Paul at Mustang MD a call at 818-367-0055.
  13. THANKS GUYS....I NEEDED TO HEAR THIS......ILL TAKE MY TIME FOR SURE AND IF I HAVE ANY PROBLEMS PAINLESS HAS A NUMBER TO CALL ....PLUS YOU GUYS ALWAYS HELP THANKS FOR THAT AHEAD OF TIME!! I WONDER IS RPM BOUGHT MIDLIFE THAT BOTTLE OF WHISKEY YET?????? ED
  14. Bill is interesting to talk to. I have bought several items from him. I needed a air cleaner base and lid and snorkel for my R code. Some of those repro parts are fiberglass and I did not like that idea. Very nice quality and Bill has them made by the original contractor to Ford. Bill seldom answers the phone but will return your call. Good luck. Dave R.
  15. I can also refurbish the underhood headlight harness for much less than the reproductions. The alternator and engine gauge feed (oil, water, coil) are better bought as reproductions.
  16. just thought I would get some opinions on who makes the best reproduction magnum 500 rims , thinking 15 x7 any tire size recommendations?
  17. I follow this channel in youtube and I thought this was very interesting, this may and possibly save the gasoline engine:
  18. There are lots of companies that make harnesses, but personally I like stock replacement harnesses that match the wire diagram and Ford specs. You can get those from National Parts Depot, and the company is Metal Alloy. Call NPD and tell them what model you have and they will know which harnesses you need- with or without a tach, hood turn signals, etc. Its a good idea to replace the wire forward of the firewall, because it ages with heat and the elements, however for the stuff inside the car you can get it refurbished by Randy at http://midlifeharness.com
  19. thanks for the info > saw the the bolt but didn't want to do anything till I was sure
  20. No worries Phil! would you be able to provide a photo of the header? just curious on how it looks. Also, no prices from the site had to call but no answer, will try again tomorrow.
  21. The engine bay was media blasted and primed with PPG primer, final coat PPG single stage satin black. It's really easy to touch up with aftermarket black satin paint
