    Flanders got a reaction from Mach1 Driver in Throttle cable replacement (Inglese intake)   
    ended up with the black stainless steel Lokar cable for the Borla 8-stack injection system.  Basically identical throttle parts as Inglese.  I'm not convinced yet that the S-bend in my cable is going to give me perfectly smooth operation once I'm driving, but for now it works.  The clip for the gas pedal worked after about 20 seconds with the dremel -- didn't need to take much off to make it fit.  A few pics for reference.

    Flanders got a reaction from mwye0627 in EFI Conversion: it's ALIVE!   
    I'll post more details once I get a chance to sit down and sort though things, however it's ALIVE after the first turn of the key.  Inglese intake, Holley Terminator X ECU.  I had to re-do the IAC wiring (the idle is a bit high in my first start-up video here) so my idle rpm and idle a/f are bang on.  It's coil- for spark, so dual-sync distributor is next...

    Flanders got a reaction from bigmal in 22gal Aeromotive gas tank fit?   
    Just to wrap up this thread -- I bent the flange at the top of my '70 filler neck, just a little bit, with the help of my vise and got things to line up quite nicely.  Any funky-ness in the flange (it's admittedly not 100% flat now) didn't cause any other issues.  It still bolted tightly against the gasket, and the gas cap covers it up anyway.  So, for anyone putting this tank in your '69 mustang, make sure to get a '70 filler neck.

    Flanders got a reaction from Mach1 Driver in 1G to 3G alternator conversion   
    well, not sure yet :D  it should, as I don't understand where else the voltage regulator's field output is supposed to get used.  I'll report back once my engine bay is assembled again.

    Flanders got a reaction from JayEstes in Intermittent ignition issue   
    I've replaced my pink wire with a straight 12V feed (pertronix II) and that fixed my warm-startup issues.  That said, I had to replace my pertronix after ~3 years because it was very intermittent reliability on cold startup.  Got a new one 1.5 years ago and it's been good ever since.  I hope this one lasts longer...

    Flanders reacted to Cigarwilki in Front disc upgrade: good spot for proportioning valve?   
    You can buy generic steel brake line at any parts store with connectors. Probably the wrong ones for stock application and right ones for non-stock newer stuff. Cut the line with a tube cutter. Use whichever fitting you can find that is correct and then  with the compression coupling you can insert it anywhere in your system with confidence it won't leak.

    It looks like there are several good options to chose, for going from manual front drum brakes to disc.
     
    I'm not too interested in power brakes so I don't need to worry about a booster.
     
    that said, are any kits superior than others?  I can't really differentiate what makes one better than another:
     
    -chockostang is $700

    -MustangSteve has parts
    -Scott Drake (via CJ pony parts) has a kit as well ($700)
     
    why would SSBC's kit be $400 more than chockostang?

    Nice color!!
    I finally put my GT stripes on my fastback, it took me 2 years to finally do it.  Now that they're on, I love 'em :)  I have chrome rocker trim, and I really like the look of it.  This lousy cell-phone pic makes it seem really shiny, but it goes really well with all the other chrome trim on the car.
