    Scorching hot alternator pulley

    If I were you, I'd go to great lengths to get the V belts to work. I didn't even think to try a double V belt when my single belt kept slipping with a ~100 amp alternator. I even used a turnbuckle to tighten the belt. Even though I dislike the serpentine belt look, it does work. My need to use the 100 amp alt was a classic rabbit hole affair, which I don't recommend. Since I just had to have a shaker air cleaner, tIhen found it sat too high thru the hood. Shoulda milled the Stealth intake, but lowered the motor. Which required custom motor mounts, engine crossmember, electric fans since stock interfered with lower radiator hose, custom tranny mounts to keep angle correct. All for a damn shaker. With dual fans, power windows, and stereo, I went big on the alternator. In hindsight, I'd keep it stock. Much more simple, and stock works just fine.

    Floor pans on both sides are now in and just doing some prep work on seat risers and the Global West subframe connectors, before welding them in. I have a few days off next week, so hoping to get the welding finished, save for the front rad support.

    Headers for a 347/TKO600/Borgeson in a 70

    Keep in mind, since you're running EFI, they prefer single plane manifolds otherwise the sensors/computer gets confused. Don't take my word for it, read up on this subject. Dual planes disrupt the way they sense air charges, in short

    Correct, you need to plan this out to do it right. It would be a good time to add a mega* fuse and a fuse link. I would suggest a 3G Ford style alternator (not PA Performance) of around 100A, unless you will be adding a big stereo and power windows. The thing with the ammeter is that it has to be disconnected, but you could have it converted to a functioning voltmeter and no one would ever know. The secret here is that it already is a type of voltmeter, but not what you need. *haha, the first time I actually spelled that maga (Make America Great Again), not mega.

    Drum brake spindles have a 4 Bolt flange for mounting the backing plate. Disk brake have a 3 bolt flange for mounting the backing plates. I beleive 70 have a larger spinal that takes a larger bearing as well. Then there are granda spendals that I have knowledge.

    Shelby Arning Drop with Stock Parts?

    exactly what i was going to suggest Lanky. I did this to mine and also set the shaft in control arm forward a thread or two. all this made the grease fitting to close the the shock tower so I plugged the original hole so I positioned everything the way would be torqued down and marked the nut hex flat facing out. took back apart and drilled and taped the hole. With this modification and lower control arm pulled forward as far as I could without tire rub on valance I got 5 degrees caster. I had CPP intergral steering box similar to Borgensen and the car drove awesome.

    I've been hesitating spending money on my mustang lately. Don't know if I might need it for more necessity items with all the instability across the country and what will probably happen in November and beyond. Though I'm pretty well set, I might have to increase my family's security provisions.

    hey, whats important to know is that today is Ashura. it now shows up on my apple calendar, but im sure muslim shit will replace Columbus day, 4th of July , Christmas and thanks giving! Didn't they just terrorize this country a few years ago. This crap just gets better and better, I'm no Bible thumper at all, but old friends of mine have been talking about Rapture, barcode tattoos, watch the gay movement, and whats right will seem wrong and wrong become right, since i was a teen and all sorts of crap i forgot. I always said, they were full of shit. But i'm afraid to say they were right. Im sure its not coincidence. I have never before felt like my time was up and that we would actually be in a holy war / race war. I do believe we are there. Never-mind the elections, no matter who is in or out, this will get worse. But what really concerns me is we wont be able to drive our mustangs anymore with trash like AOC :-)

    Explain it to me please !

    So I am old and have seen a lot so far but the complete loss of common sense has me at a loss. Why is it so dangerous to vote in person, Yet we go to the stores, gas stations, banks and more without worry about the so called danger. They blame Trump for the virus, So do they have a better idea or cure ? If so then why do they not come out and show us what can be done to stop it , Why do they need me to vote for them to see their plans. They keep yelling Black lives matter , As they slaughter each other in the streets daily. Calling to defund the Police , But do not say who or what is the plan to protect the citizens of the US. You want a Green New Deal , But you cannot tell me why tossing money in the air is going to stop millions of years of climate change. You scream for reparations and burn down, loot, kill and say I have white privilege but know nothing about my lifes hardships. News Flash!!!! Your reparation check has been defunded and sent to the cash pot to replace and rebuild the cities and business's that were destroyed in your misguided riots. Looking back at the Lefts idea of It Takes a Village to Raise a Child program , They forgot to consider what would the out come would be when your village is full of Idiots!

    Electric fuel pump

    Understood. You could possibly do the same set up just use the Carb Regulator. If you ever switch to EFI, just swap out the regulator. And yes the right PTFE is not cheap and I did get the good stuff as I read the same things about the pin holes. Certainly didn't want that issue.

    If this is an electrical coolant sensor, don't use teflon products on the threads, as the threads are the conductive path to ground.

    Life’s Challenges

    Prayers have been answered and we got some great news today. Stage one, cell doesn’t appear to have any blood vessels through it, and lymph nodes looked normal. Next is choose between a lumpectomy with centralized radiation or a mastectomy. Lymph nodes would be removed during either procedure and then more thoroughly checked. Dr was so awesome and took the time to explain what we are dealing with, what happens next, options on how to proceed, genetic test available to help with that decision as well as benefit Erin, and then preventive measures to help insure another cell doesn’t pop up. Sue was so relieved as I and we can now focus on what it actually is, in lieu of the unknown. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers!

    agreed, Im going this route once I go EFI, the stealth tank can handle both EFI and Carb Set ups. its matter of getting a fuel regulator and correct hose.

    Mini Starter

    Mini starters can be expensive. And some of the gear reduction aftermarket stuff can be noisy. I had the same issue you are having, hard to crank over when hot with the 351W in my 1969 Mach 1. This was many years ago, I went to the parts department at my local Ford dealer, the part number changed a few times, but I ended up with a late model permanent magnet gear reduction mini starter. It solved all the hard starting issues. If you have an automatic trans, I think a starter for a 1995 or so F150 with a 5.8L and automatic trans will fit. Those are a PMGR mini starter and you can get one from a parts store. Just do a close comparison before installing it, especially the drive gear.

    sub 11 could be done with both motor combos. roll cage not needed but a 5 point bar minimum. I would suggest swing out on the drivers side.. ran a pump gas 393 and it put print out 11.15 slips all day..

    Seems like I've seen this thread before somewhere. But anyway.. When people say they want a bunch of power and there's a choice between a smaller engine and a bigger one, the answer is the bigger one. Pretty much just that simple. Getting around 400 HP from a 351W isn't too hard. Stroke it for more. 8 inch rears rule of thumb are good up to 400 HP or so if there's no drag racing with slicks. Sounds like you'll need a 9. The "sub 11 second" thing kind of throws this. Such times aren't that easy to achieve. Plus if you do, they're going to say you have to have a roll cage if you plan to keep going to the track. Have a plan for that? An alternative to all this is to just hotrod the engine and car how you want to with an eye towards improving it's performance. If you forget about focusing on some arbitrary blue sky numbers the whole thing is a LOT more enjoyable. On the other hand, if you intend to use the car for competition then of course you need a thought out plan with realistic goals.

    to answer your first question: my current 392w stroker had a "street fighter" c4 from performance automatic with a 2500 stall convertor and I had stock open 3:00 diff, it was a good platform and nothing ever broke as I was on street tires. I would definitely look into performance automatic if you decided to stay with the c4 or you can buy their 4spd auto. I decided to go manual as that was the original goal, so I went with a TKO0600 and went with a trutrac ford 9 w/3:50 gears. I was able to put down 360rwhp and 400rwtq after dyno and tune. if there was a 5-6 speed auto that could fit with no cutting/mods I would have gone this route. For the 302/351w: both 302//351w are great platforms, though the power you are wanting to make, I think the 331 should be easy build, but the 302 block has limitations if you are trying to achieve max power, thats when the 351w comes in to play, they can take up to 600hp no problem. price is roughly the same with both engines, with a 351w you are limited to intake options, if you stay with the stock hood, I wanted the edelbrock airgap but I read there was clearance issues with the stock hood and some ppl recommended going with a cowl hood. I went with the weiand stealth intake instead, to keep my stock hood and I make good power overall. the 302's are easier to work on, they are smaller and no clearance issues, 351w are somewhat wider and taller and can get tight under the hood if you go with big heads and headers, servicing the 351w can be tiresome, which is why some ppl tend to stay with a 302 but 351w can take more power. of course, these opinions can be eliminated if you went with a dart block, then I suggest going with the 331.

    Suspension options

    I'm also very close to order suspension for both the front and back. I can share my experience. The main benefit for removing the shock towers is more room in the engine bay (duh) which would make you possible engine list longer, and easier if you want to build a turbo engine. Other than that there isn't really much difference in performance between a Mustang II-ish suspension setup and one that uses the stock pickup points, though everything is supposedly better than the stock suspension. That is if you want to trust the internet because I don't have any actual experience. Regarding the rear, the difference between a 4 link or a 3 link/torque arm as I understand it is that the 4 link is better in straight lines and worse in curves and the 3 link/torque arm is the opposite. Not to say that both can work decent in both areas. Here is some pretty good summaries of some regular types of suspensions for solid axles. Here in Sweden if I want to have the car road legal with suspension othern than the original setup I have to get it inspected during and after the actual build before I can get it approved and registered with the new suspension. The inspector that I've been talking to didn't really like my first suggestion of a 4 link because he said that the arms usually bind at the extremes where as a 3 link or torque arm is virtually bind free. He aslo said that a 4 link will want to steer the rear axle when the car goes through corners. If you turn to the left the rear axle also turns a slight to moderate amount to the left (or right, can't remember), which can make the car harder to handle. His suggestions was to try and keep the self steering in the rear to a minimum and to try and reduce scrub radius as much as possible in the front (that's another story). He has been working as an inspector for modified veicles since at least 2002.

    69 Speedo Cable attachment

    Thanks just figured it out haha. Had to set some pliers on the collar and tap the cable into the hole. Tight fit. Then I pushed the plastic clip to one side and sure enough it fell right into place. I chucked the cable into my drill and slowly turned it to see if it works. This cable is cut in two and I was just getting ready for the new one I ordered. Thanks again

    Update, started to take a closer look at Sheet metal. In summary 3 main points; 1-inner fender pieces, LHD and RHS to replace as hood hinge fixings missing on both sides 2-LHS frame rail, firewall and floor, find the odd pickle point, so cutting out floor. less on RHS but going to cut that out when LHS done. 3-front rad core support piece, nr RHS top bit crusty And looks like a small fender bender in past so replacing whole unit with RHS inner fender panel as battery tray is rotten from below aside form that the car is solid. getting parts in U.K. proving really difficult, having to order via and circa 6 week delay and driving me mad eg global west subframe connectors ... joys of owning a US car over here in U.K.

    69 mach 408w build

    finally fabbed up the driveshaft loop. i started with a universal kit from summit that i had gotten about 17 years ago... the only part i used was the loop. i trimmed a little off and welded the two halves together. i cut some 1/4" plate to make the side brackets and cut up some 1/8" 2X1 box tubing for the connector pieces. it's located about 4.5" from the u-joint centerline but the first fastener is about 7" from the centerline. hopefully i won't be forced to have to ever argue with any tech. i plan on painting it the same color as the undercarriage with the loop painted the same stainless steel paint as the driveshaft.
