  1. From Edelbrocks website. Manifold height: A-3.55", B-4.75", same as stock; Carb pad height: 4.15"; My shaker fits nicely in the opening not too high. If the 3" spec was correct my shaker would be lower
  2. With my car I had an Edelbrock Performer RPM. This put the shaker in direct contact with the hood. After researcing intakes I found their Torker manifold to be the stock height. This cured the clearance issue.
  3. Where did you get the LED modules ? Want LED tail lights for my 65 El Camino.
  4. Did my 1965 El Camino a few years ago with an updated harness from American auto wire. Previous owners really butchered the wiring. Had some smoke from under the dash while coming back from the Syracuse nationals and made up my mind. Took it in small batches. American auto wire was there on the phone whenever the paperwork didn’t make sense. Last summer the wipers stopped and they helped me through emails and calls. It is a big step all together. But easily manageable in small tasks. I’d do it again. But I had the car for about 10 years before that happened. Drive it first. Enjoy the experience
  5. Very nice. Hard to tell its been repaired in those photos. When it is under the air cleaner you will never see it.
  6. One loads in from the front as an assembly. The 8.8 has all the guts inside.
  7. Had something similar happen to me. Traced it back to corroded connections at the solenoid. Took everything apart, cleaned. Nothing ever happened in the years since
  8. This has got me thinking about building a 1940 Ford pickup. Orange with a red interior. As a kid I built a model of one that I've always liked. Think it was a Monogram unit
  9. Took a Heinz tomato juice can myself. Popped two small holes in it. Used it for years until I got rid of the A/c units. Left the labels on it.
  10. Anyone have concerns with their injection units lately ?
  11. Taken in small steps with a clear plan it will be done in due course.
  12. Drove my car last night for the first time in a while. Now that I've got a tach installed I found out my car runs like crap after about 3800 rpm. Ordered a new distributer #8578 so my shaker will clear. But I'm wondering if MSD boxes degrade with age ?
  13. Thanks. Tapped into the red/green wire for power and lights. Connected to the terminal on the MSD box. Works great !
  14. Installing an Autometer tach on the column. Need a wire to tap into for switched power. Another for lights. thanks
  15. So you don’t need a carburetor after all. Nice !
  16. Does the battery have to be enclosed if its in the trunk ? Want to put mine just behind the seat above the axle.
  17. Want to put the battery in the trunk. I want to put it between the wheels above the axle. Doing so means I cant enclose it with a battery box due to accessibility issues. Don't have a fold down seat so it will fit nicely. What are the pros and cons of not enclosing it within the trunk area ?
  18. Just things to work on while you're riding in comfort with that Thunderbird.
  19. Whats is wrong with the T bird ? I'd be more inclined to get that mobile.
