    So Kamela and Joe...

    Gun deaths per capita are low compared to other deaths in the US. As far as related to other countries, somebody's gonna be at the top and bottom of the list. Being worst on the list doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad thing. The most gun restrictive cities in the US have the highest murders. Being on top of that list is a bad thing. Hell, living in those cities is a bad thing.

    Life’s Challenges

    Yes, happy tears First round of chemo went ok. Changed the caps out 18 times over 9 hours, with one of them being on the side of the highway on the way home. She hasn't lost any of her hair yet, so well worth it. The first 5 days after chemo were as to be expected I guess from what I'd read, but one hell of an emotional roller coaster with it changing from a laugh, to her curled up in a ball on the floor crying she cant do it anymore. We go back next week for the second of the 4 treatments and plan on kicking this one too. My wife is such the warrior!! Thanks guys for all your support and prayers

    Brake Lines

    Cunifer tubing is an outstanding choice for brake and fuel lines and is considered the "elite" material in the modern extreme performance and luxury car world today. Several manufacturers use cunifer tubing exclusively and many of the top-tier custom builders around the country use it daily. It is equally corrosion resistant as stainless and when polished is difficult to tell the difference between it and stainless. Unless you have a desire for the specific aesthetic appearance of stainless, cunifer is the best choice from all other mechanical perspectives (ease of flaring, ease of bending, no worry of cracking at the flare and/or work hardening, more vibration resistant, etc.) and it can be "worked" with conventional flaring tools, benders & cutters with far greater success than stainless in the average home shop. Beyond that, it's actually kind of "fun" to work with too!

    The Real Truth

  5. 2 points
    A couple of people with pretty good credentials (Barnett and Bryonl) say not to use it. I doubt any of us would be using it at -40F so the only thing its got going for it is that it doesn't attack paint (which I really like). On the negative it has the soft pedal which can increase with altitude, and the corrosion problem. Personally my brake fluid only gets changed occasionally, hasn't been spilled on the paint and so far hasn't been a problem (knock on wood). I guess it depends if you drive at altitude, drive it a lot and need frequent maintenance, or intend to change the fluid often. I don't do any of those things, probably like you Ed, so it just doesn't matter:

    Explain it to me please !

    So watching the vote tally and I see that there is close to 15 million more votes than in 2016. Tossing out a guess, I would say that it is from the younger crowd of under 25-30 year olds. They fell for the lefts its all going to be free for you, No more college payments and free medical and such for you all. Problem is it doesn't add up to reality. They use their new math that does not show the bottom line answer. You want all the free stuff but never ask how it will be paid for, You just expect its your right to have it. Sorry to bust your happy bubble but YOU will be footing the bill for the rest of your life! To keep it simple for those college grads, Look at the supply and demand side of what your expecting. Your demands will surpass the supply available within days if not hours. You need to have those who are producing to supply funds into the cash pie. But your demands are 10 times greater than the production can cover, Because those who were producing figured out that those who are demanding are not adding to the cash pie, So they have quit and joined the ranks of the demanding. Now there is nothing to draw from and NO ONE gets anything, Sorry the math proves it will not work and you got what you voted for. Enjoy!

    Just to follow up on my own thread, I ended up going through the heater hose holes for my wiring. This worked since I have an A/C car and those heater hose holes were not used. I also mounted my controller in the glove box. I removed the liner so I can't store anything in there anymore though. I finished the install in early spring and highly recommend the 4R70W. It's a blast to drive now.

    69 Convertible build

    Over the last few days I’ve got the radiator installed and hooked up, finished installing and wiring the ac system, hooked up the transmission cooling lines, cleaned and repainted my seat frames, disassembled the convertible frame and completely rebuilt and painted it, and installed the carpet. I also got all the electrical issues sorted out and everything works properly now.

    Help for 69 mach 1 alignment

    Can you post a picture of how you took the above measurements? Looks like driver side shock tower is bent inwards on front UCA bolt location and outwards on rear bolt location creating total of 1/2 inches of twist. This will move the left front wheel forward about 1 inch compared to right side when you get caster of both right and left to almost same degree. Temporarily, I would adjust the adjustable UCA 1/2 inches longer on front if you can, if not put 1/2 shim under front. Permenant fix would be to find a place that can twist the tower and get it correct on driver side.

    Explain it to me please !

    So a virus made in a China lab and released by them is Trumps fault? And when he bans travel from said country he is called racist! As he gathers medical pros to figure out best plan of attack while the left is spouting Go have dinner and dance in the streets. And when he goes to the cabinet that is supposed to have emergency supplies in it, The thing is BARE! Yes both the left and right deep state politicians have done nothing but push back against ANY thing he was trying to do to help the people. Like get funds to help the pushed out of work by this virus, As the pundits fill any bill with pork for their side bailing out or supporting their special interests. Please explain why a simple bill needs the pork? But Trump did fail at the health care reform, Maybe not his fault but those turncoats that slashed it to keep it from passing. As the election goes there is a skunk in the booth and it needs to be put down. Please continue the debate with facts not media propaganda talking points.

    HIPO exhaust manifolds on a 351w?

    I did a bit of digging and found this from George Reid in his book High Performance Ford Engine Parts Interchange. It appears (much to my surprise) that the 351W already has a manifold comparable to the 289 HIPO- who knew- way to go Henry! The 289 High Performance exhaust manifold is obviously different and offers improved breathing. Here, we compare them with standard 289 manifolds (B and D). These manifolds are C3OE-9431-B (Left Side/Arrow C) and C4ZE-9430-A (Right Side/Arrow A) from 1963-66. For 1967, they are C7ZE-9431-A (Left Side) and C7ZE-9430-A (Right Side). The 289 High Performance exhaust manifolds are available as reproductions from Ford parts vendors. 289 standard= B & D 351W standard 289 HIPO= A & C The 351W exhaust manifold is similar to the 289 High Performance pieces just mentioned. It offers improved breathing over the 289/302-2V and 4V manifolds without excessive header heat and clearance problems. As you can see, 351W manifolds vary from left to right. There is a right-hand 351W exhaust manifold similar to the manifold on the 289. Edit, looking at the pictures I see that the bolts don't appear to be in a straight line on the passenger side manifold of the 351W, as they are on the drivers side, but I don't think that's the case with mine. It's too crowded on the car to get a good look, but it makes me wonder about the validity of pictures. I pulled up some pictures of the gaskets and they appear to be mirror images right to left, which wouldn't be possible- has anyone noticed offset bolts like this on their manifolds? Methinks there may be an error here.

    Have our second Bronco being delivered Friday. Doing something different than the rest of the crowd building these. The tubs that we make will be bolted in on the inside and pop rivets on the outside, this way it will be 10 times easier to paint the engine compartment without the tubs in.

    I agree with 1969_Mach1. It's the wrong manifold. I looked at mine (1969 351W 4v) and it has a 1/2" of clearance. Attached pic.

    Welcome Sal to 69stang When testing starter solenoid, its a good idea to disconnect the positive wire to the ignition coil, so the motor will only crank, and not start.

    So the media runs 95% negative comments on Trump for over 4 years now and you say its a 2 way street? Then answer this simple question, What did the Obama/Biden run of 8 years do that was a plus for the people of America? Trump has made more changes in the time he has been in office that has helped all American people than any politican has ever done.

    Sequential tail lights for a 69

    I too installed the Vintage LED set up recently. You can see it is pixelated some compared the stock bulb with just the lights on. But as bright as they are, I should have done it much sooner and VERY HAPPY with the quality and ease of install of the Vintage LED product. I did the front turn signals and back up lights as well. Here is a quick video as well of the, it does flare the camera a little as bright as they are, but I love the setup. I also like that when you hit the brakes it can do just solid and on sequential. 20200523_112043.mp4

    Aslanefe is right, just adjust the UCA, and LCA till you get108" wheelbase. The front left wheel probably sustained damage from a side impact, caused the twist on the tower. Post picture after fix.

    Got all the interior color done. Still have clear to do This afternoon but it looks good. The color is F8 green. It’s a 2019 dodge color. The first picture doesn’t do it justice due to being in the shade and no clear on it. You can see the metal flake and more of the actual color in the last picture.
