  1. If you go new, you cant go wrong with the Alloy Metal Harness. And don't forget, there's a difference in harnesses depending if your car is with or without tach. I believe even the alternator harness is different as well based on with or without tach.
  2. I could not agree more. I realize its a revenue stream that's necessary but................... you got to be careful not to overwhelm the visitor. It P*sses me off how this crap taxes my computer on the net
  3. I would look into the Thoroughbred floor pan assemblies before you pull the trigger on a Dynacorn.
  4. There's a lot of truth to this and we have all been there at some point and time. It's easy to let yourself get distracted or alter the initial "plan". Rest assured, what ever time table you estimated to complete the job at hand will "always" take longer. You will ether encounter something that also truly needs fixed or you start thinking "well....... since we already have it out, might as well replace............" . It will get you every time if you allow it. Remember, its a hobby (or illness in my case)
  5. Who doesn't love the 351C. Its a fun motor to work with and you can make some wicked power with just stock parts. I actually have 4 or 5 351C tucked away in my garage. I'm finishing up a 408C that Tim Meyer helped me with. I used his stroker kit along with a BT intake, roller cam, and a set of CHI heads. I cant wait to get it finished and drop down in my 68FB to see how she puts around. I love to play with motors. I really want to build a 351 Hemi some day. For no other reason than "just because". If you look at my avatar, its a 351 Hemi built by Nick Arias jr.
  6. I like it !. Nice fixture Ridge. I especially like the set up at the hood hinge sections. The whole fixture is well thought out
  7. Can you explain this so I can better understand?
  8. Many places sell the boss 429 scoop replica and I'm sure they all differ in some way. My brother bought one for his 69 that has a lower height than the normal boss scoop. For me, its an acquired taste. I don't care for it myself but it fits the Boss 429 personality. I always thought it looked like an after thought as if someone cut the handle off an old coal shovel.
  9. SPI epoxy primer and you're done with it till your ready to work on it.
  10. My $0.02 If your keeping the car, buying a set of good quality "Eaton" leaf springs is money well spent.
  11. Exactly what I had done. The knob will unscrew from the shaft with some effort.
  12. I had a great Christmas ! Santa brought me this under hood light http://www.amazon.com/ATD-Tools-80050-Underhood-Light/dp/B002J8RTF0
  13. Your original can be rebuilt. It's a little more involved than you might think. I would suggest using Dan at Chockostang or Roger Rodes at Rodes Restorations. I have used them both http://www.chockostangclassicmustang.com/discbrakepowersteering/steeringboxs.html Rodes restoration 1406 Lohr Rd, Galion, OH 44833 Phone:(419) 468-5182
  14. See attached Sorry, after posting, I realized it does not give the specific dimension you are looking for.
  15. See Attached, At the connector on the switch, The red wires with blue stripes are for the neutral safety switch The black wires with red stripe are for the back up light
  16. The pan simply kept hot oil from splashing on the bottom of the stock intake. (remember the 351C intake is a dry intake) Some use it but many of the 351C engine builders do not. You are using an RPM airgap intake so oil splash is of no concern. I typically do not use it and I built a few 351C's with both stock heads and intake as well as after market intakes like Blue Thunder which I currently have on my 68. I've not had a problem not using the turkey pan. Before taking anything apart, make sure you've torqued the intake bolts to proper spec. Also, keep in mind that an intake leak can occur from the bottom side of the intake as well as the top.
  17. I'm with bob on this. I too, enjoy all things classic mustang and "especially" those that I can learn from. Where ever you post it Ridge, let us know. I really want to learn from this. In my mind, I can see and understand how its done. But, that's me, I'd like to follow someone with experience.
  18. No problems here. I think we could all learn something from the transformation / grafting you will be doing.
  19. I've eaten so much, I'm in a food coma
  20. Just wanted to advise those in the area (Ohio,Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Western PA) about the United Ford Owners Annual Fall Super Swap this Nov.28-29 at the state fairgrounds in Columbus, Ohio Four buildings of nothing but Ford parts ! Lots of window shopping and good stuff and I like "stuff"
  21. I would run out and buy a lotto ticket before the day is over. I don't do the lotto thing myself but for you to have such a lucky break pretty much mandates you use the mojo while you have it before it leaves you.
  22. I never touched an automatic transmission before until several years ago. I bought the Bad Shoe Productions video for the C6 transmission and did my first. I then bought their C4 video and have done several since. One of the absolute best and most complete you will ever find. I've done (3) more C4 tranny's since then and the results were great. My buddies think I am a pro with automatic transmissions but I'm not. I don't know squat. I just know how to watch a video and pay attention. http://www.badshoeproductions.com/c4.html
