  1. Brakes and steering first here also...
  2. m-6009-427f from Ford has treated me well...
  3. Barnett I agree on the paint but the radiator should be sized big enough to cool the engine with some more to spare.. allowing the thermostat to function properly...this is Texas...it's hot..I have a mc338 in my 427 small block it keeps it cool with room to spare with a 147 deg thermostat ...there is a big difference between a 20" and. 24" 2-3-4 cores out there...more BTUs...I'm not taking about a small fan either..18" or 19" if you can fit it in a shroud... extra cooling flex..I would give up HP for better cooling between rounds...or stopping at a red light
  4. All mine are 24" ac radiators..work great at the track and convertible blows cold ac at idle in the Texas heat from a 4 core I bought from John's years ago.
  5. You can paint the aluminum flat black so its not seen from the front...I bought a champion aluminum..pain to fit with a factory shroud..but I did have my factory radiator recorded to a 3 core... bought a 4 core for my convertible from John's mustang...many years ago..it was expensive but the fit was good...
  6. Hmmm..cross flow in 69? Not any of mine..also a 70 with a passenger upper hose and a lower hose on the driver's side...if they are calling that a cross flow..??
  7. 69 and 70 have different inlet hose locations....69 passenger side 70 driver's side... different location of water pump inlet ...and timing pointer's....just get a 69 radiator.24"..with new top mounts and lower mounts...you are done and off cooling..
  8. New pistons are in.. Custom cam here to.. New AFR 220 renegade also.. Waiting on custom 2" headers.. Time to make the 427w breath..
  9. Thought it was just a head gasket...nope..heads destroyed..and 3 pistons hurt....to much timing for pump gas.... ordered new heads and custom pistons that will keep the compression down around 11...
  10. Changed rear gear from 4.11 to a 3.70...new slicks mounted..getting read for next week racing...I haven't had a good year...driver keeps sleeping on the tree...
  11. the rear will act like a spool a little when it is tighter...popping in the rear during a turn.. other than that all is normal ..you will be able to hear it and sometimes feel it..
  12. I use 3m weather strip adhesive on my servos...my line pressure is 90 to 225 .that was the only stuff that would hold the fluid in....make Shure the servo is not warped..
  13. big difference...power is very nice.. have a manual disc I drag race and its ok.. will stop any time.. But have 2 power disk cars that will through you forward if hit to hard.
