  1. I have a bump steer kit in mine and set the caster heavier too, have almost totally redone the front end with the exception of the gear box, I still have a bit of wander.
  2. Had some fun before I put some new cooper cobra tires on...
  3. Also what I meant by ride comfort was I’m staying away from 18”+ wheels, I daily a car that has 18s. So I understand the plight of a 40 series sidewall
  4. Thanks for the all input! A little more background on my car is in order. Car is lowered, I’m running a mid eye in the back and a slightly heavier spring in front, the # eludes me at the moment, strut rods are stock with a harder rubber bushing, not poly. Outer tie rods are swapped to the TCP bump steer kit, the shocks are RCDs on all 4 corners UCA and LCA are grab a track. Currently I’m running vintage 14x8 ET X wheels but I want something a little different. This will likely be a weekend warrior with spirited winding drives.
  5. So this is the year, I’m finally getting new wheels and tires!! for the sake of ride comfort I’m leaning towards a 17 by 7.5 or 8” those of you running a square set up, what offset did you end up using?
  6. Thanks for the response, it may be worth the shot. My dad’s car really is/was a rare one. It’s the yellow one in my avatar, with bench seats with the super deluxe interior. His had a bunch of weird extras that my V8 didn’t. We think it was a special order with dealer mods.
  7. First, thanks for all the help so far on my 69. I’ve been able to get it running and doing burnouts in the driveway thanks to a lot of the help I’ve gotten from here. I’m trying to do a little refresh on my pop’s 69 mustang he has a 250 with a carter RBS 1bbl carb and I’m trying to find a good kit to overhaul the carb and also trying to find a points conversion kit. I’ve been unsuccessful in finding any of this stuff from stores or brands I know. Do any of you guys have any pointers?
  8. Perfect! Shims are needed then it seems... many thanks good sir!
  9. Greetings all! i hope you all may be able to help me out. I’m soooo close to getting my mustang back on the road and I’m at the last bits. So I have a ‘94 roller set up and due to machining the valve train geometry is no longer stock. My question is what should I set my preload to past 0 lash on the heel of the cam? Is there a number of turns I should be? Right now with 6.143” rods I have 2-3 full turns which seems a bit much. Thoughts?
  10. Cool! I’ll roll with that! Much appreciated
  11. Greetings! So after a long 2-3 year slumber the mustang is finally waking up. One thing I’ve always wanted to do is clean up the spark plug wire routing. I’ve got a 94 mustang roller block which I believe has the 351w firing order. So those with this firing order, how where did you put #1 on the distributor so the wires aren’t all cris-crossed and looking like a rats nest?
  12. Great to know! I’ll make sure I build a knuckle with rotor and calipers and run over to team 3 wheels to check clearance
  13. this is great info. now to gather parts.... thanks a million folks!!
  14. no sh!t? That's GREAT to know. How do I know if i got the "big bearing" spindles for 1970 when i buy them? is that a naming thing? Thanks Nathan!
  15. Not sure if you all know but it seems like SSBC went belly up I have been running their Com R kit for years loved it. But now I have a seized caliper and don’t have a way to rebuild it. So it seems I will be going OEM+ now. FML more $ down the drain In any case, is there a vehicle that has bolt on brakes that are bigger than the stock ones? I want to be able to service this in the future and not be locked into and aftermarket company. I’m open to ideas that do NOT include Wilwood. thanks!
