  1. Dash Gauges or A Pillar Pod Ideas

    Those look pretty nice. If I weren't already up and running I think I'd like the VHX Gauges from Dakota Digital http://www.dakotadigital.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=791/category_id=434/mode=prod/prd791.htm That said both these solutions are expensive. What about a couple cup style pods strapped to the steering column? I did this with a super mini tach and and AFR and really like the way it looks.. Similar to a rally pac (though not as nice of course). Maybe you could find a broken Rally Pac and replace the gauges with what you want. Just a thought.
  2. 3G Alternator Hints

    This is interesting. I did the 3G on a 302 and didn't have any of these issues. I used an Alternator from a 90s Windstar I think. The only change for me was I had to use a bolt and nut on the lower alternator/bracket connection because the new Alternator didn't have a threaded hole. Instead it was smooth so I got a longer bolt and a nut and it worked fine. Which alternator did you get? I read somewhere DOHC late 90s Taurus alternators work well (I only see the Sable below). The one I got for a Windstar worked well. I'll post a part number tomorrow. From a Stangnet forum- https://www.stangnet.com/mustang-forums/threads/3g-swap-these-the-basic-steps.866228/ Here is a list of vehicles that have the 3G alternator, most are 130A, but some might be 110A:94-96 Mustang 3.8 V-694-95 Mustang 5.094-96 Thunderbird 3.8 V-6 (non SC)95-96 Windstar 3.0 V-6 (most are 3.8's)93-96 E/F series Trucks/Vans 4.9 L6*96 Sable 3.0 V-694-96 Cougar 3.8 V-6 *Probably the best one if you can get it (should be easy to find, too) is off the E/F series...this series uses a threaded top ear like the stocker on the Mustang....E/F series with threaded ear uses metric bolt. ALSO, make sure the E/F series is 130 Amps and NOT 95."" That last note probably explains the change i needed.
  3. What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    Now that is a funny story!
  4. Maybe I'm the only one on the planet...

    It's funny... I went golfing with one of my oldest friends. Across from the course was a family with a 1969 Mustang SP of some sort in the drive way that was 60% apart that they were obviously working to restore. I pointed it out saying I wouldn't mind another Mustang (I mean who doesn't want another am I right). And he said 'Nah, I'm not into that style. I like the ones like yours'. Mine's a coupe of course. I didn't realize he liked the coupes so much. I have to admit in High School I loved the 1965-68 Fastbacks but thought the 69/70 sports roofs looked squashed. The 71-73 still do look that way to me. I've since come to really like the 69 Sports-roofs but I understand where the Coupe lovers are coming from.
  5. What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    Yeah as long as the tools are thrown at walls or out a window and not at your buddy's head because he is trying to be "helpful" in his words.....
  6. What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    Changed my oil... But I think I might have used too many tools. Why does this stuff have to be so complicated?
  7. What direct fit Aluminum Radiator is there

    I put this one in for a 347 replacing a 3 row copper radiator. It made a huge difference. I also had tried a 4 row copper radiator and had some over heating. This one has the bigger tubes for increased cooling. I drove the car in high 90 degree weather and it held up pretty good. https://www.dallasmustang.com/parts/cooling-heating/radiators-accessories/24-maxcore-aluminum-radiator-1968-1969-v8-2-row.html
  8. I decided to go another way (Rosehill performance adjustable) with my strut rods but had already purchased new rods and bushings. If I were to put all of that in a cart today on CJPP it's $110 on labor day sale. I'll sell the kit for $75 + shipping. All new and un-installed.
  9. RoadKill Mach1 Junkyard Rescue

    So how was Roadkill nights? Did you get to drag the Disgustang?
  10. Came across this add on CL. Had to look due to 'Movie' car. But not sure on this car that adds to the value. https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/cto/d/movie-car-hand-autographed/6243612492.html
  11. Del-a-Lum Leaf Spring Bushings

    -- This is why I didn't buy a poly kit in the first place. Since the car is basically for fun on the streets I wanted to keep decent ride quality. -- When you say rougher was it similar to ashleesmach1's statement that it was like a buck board? I would think the Del-Alum would allow the leafs to move more and do their job better but you would be loosing the cushioning in the bushing. I was originally thinking a future upgrade would be a Watts Link or a Pan-hard Bar. But John suggested this bushing kit.
  12. Del-a-Lum Leaf Spring Bushings

    Oh I don't doubt that. He actually was pitching me on less expensive solutions than what I was looking to do. I was just wondering if anyone on the forum was using the product and see how much they like them. I don't mind being a guinea pig.
  13. I've emailed with John at Open Tracker Racing a little bit lately after I ordered some Roller Spring Perches from them. One of the topics was on controlling the back end. I had mentioned I was thinking Pan-Hard Bar or Watts Link and he said to try aluminum bushings for the leaf springs. Anyone have any experience with this kit? http://opentrackerracing.com/product/del-lum-leaf-spring-bushing-kit-1965-1973/ Does it help keep the weight in the back from pulling in a hard corner? For the money it seems like it would be worth trying.
  14. new engine.

    Congrats. Good Choice. If I had to do it over again I would have bought the ATK over the Ford Performance. Let us know how it is after you put some miles in.
  15. Wideband sensor and gauge

    I don't know anything about the gauge brand but the sensor is the Bosch so probably ok.
