  1. For those looking for tires for the 1969 stock 14 inch rims, I just found these on the Les Schwab web page: https://www.lesschwab.com/tires/products/grand-prix-gt?size=215-70-14&li=96&sr=t&pn=133396
  2. Put an FE big block in it and don't look back. If you can reach all 8 spark plugs with your hands, your engine isn't big enough lol!
  3. I have the Cooper Cobra tires on my car also. As others have said, they suck on wet pavement, but will last a long time as long as you don't roast them all the time (I have a hard time keeping my foot out of the carbs!). Your tire choices are somewhat limited if you use original size style steel wheels if you want raised white letter radials.
  4. There is a car show at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma, WA. this Saturday at 9 AM. Anybody else going?
  5. Definitely a cool video, and my 428 CJ engine definitely did not go in that fast!
  6. I put mine in the same as MAC390, except still had the master cylinder and brake booster attached. Looking back, it would have been easier with them out, and this may have contributed to my brake booster/master cylinder leak. Not good to have a brake booster filled with brake fluid. Mine was 428, toploader, and Hooker Super Comp Headers. Put it in all at once with a total of three people myself included.
  7. Like Barnett468 said, what engine do you have? If you have a car with staggered rear shocks like my 428 CJ Mach 1, there is only one performance kit option for staggered shocks that I know of. If you have a mild 302 and don't have plans to add more power, you might not need a 21/2 inch pipe. 21/4 might work better.
  8. Probably this? http://www.cjponyparts.com/decal-pcv-ring-428cj-scj-1968-1969/p/DEC983/
  9. This is what you want Dave. You may need to trim or shave some rubber to get it to fit good. http://www.cjponyparts.com/valve-cover-grommet-pcv-1965-1985/p/PCVG2/
  10. After getting one in 2010, I thought FE stood for Friggin Expensive!
  11. There are these pillar gauge pods. Not sure how well they fit though. http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-a-pillar-gauge-pod-dual-2-1-16-with-matching-passenger-side-molding-fastback-1969-1970/p/APGP/?gclid=COjy66fX09ICFUdlfgod50sIhA
  12. Use it. The common thing is to add one more quart than what was original specified. Next time you do an oil and filter change, run it for a short time, then let sit overnight on level ground. Note where the oil level is on the dipstick, and use an engraver to make a mark there. That mark then becomes your new "full" mark.
  13. He doesn't have a stable yet since he doesn't have a Mustang lol! Seriously though, welcome to the forum and best of luck in your search. What geographic area are you looking?
  14. I had a similar problem with my tach car. Turned out that passenger side headlight harness had a bad plug that was preventing a good connection. That is the same plug that your alternator harness plugs into. Check all your connections on the headlight harness, including where it plugs into the firewall.
  15. I've solved similar hood warp problems by putting a towel on the hood to prevent scratches, then adding weight, such as cinder blocks or barbell weights in the area that needed to go down. You may need to use some wood to prop the hood up if the hood bottoms out before it can be bent.
