  1. I don't have a pic, but when I was trying to find bows for a fast back, I found a site or youtube vid explaining that they are supposed to be color coded. Thus, an order of install based on color. From what I gathered the bows with the longest bent leg went in back and they went in order of the shortest leg up front. But that's coming from a foggy memory.
  2. I'll check that. I think I've narrowed down my issues. I had valve cover leak that was blowing back on exhaust. One fouled plug and looks like the bolts that go through valve cover is getting some oil bypassing and blowing on the headers. Seems like the bolts came with Teflon washers but not sure. But, plugs looked good so thinking smell is externa to the motor.
  3. I pulled 6 of the 8 plugs. Not rich, they looked real good actually. If anything more on lean side. I put vacuum gauge on it, running around 17. Rechecked the timing and floats. Everything looks good. I am going to check the pcv valve and other 2 plugs this evening.
  4. I'm getting a lot of smell when driving. Monday was fine parked it got in it Tuesday and it's like a different car. I'm going to pull some plugs tonight.
  5. I just swapped out my original 302 with another 302 a few weeks ago. Timing at 11 if I remember correctly. It's early 70's 302. It has a brand new summit cam, lifters, pushrods etc. I used my summit 500 carb. it ran great Monday. Got home popped hood to check things out. Noticed 1 wire on the distributor cap wasn't seated. Started up still ran great. Parked it, got in it yesterday could smell fumes badly. I checked the floats looked correct. I still haven't pulled the plugs to check them out. The one thing I noticed that was odd, I have aluminum valve covers which are flat on top and fairly tall. The bolts are counter sunk, and a few had oil in the holes. Seemed kind of odd. I am hoping to pull plugs tonight. See if it's rich or lean. Just stumped on what could have happened to cause it over night. Ideas?
  6. Sorry, trying to make joke with metric vs SAE. I'd live in that garage also if it were mine.
  7. Regardless of the spelling of tire. What does this 35mm deal represent? And can I live in your garage.
  8. We need it. Not a lot going on in progress thread. Put it in the garage forum. Per the definition "Talk about anything and everything that has nothing to do with mustangs or everything to do with mustangs. No technical questions."
  9. This needs a Project Progess thread. Or at least, what the build details look like.
  10. They do make the adaptors. I switched my duraspark distributor to Pertronix a few years ago. Had the same issue. Duraspark was male and the pertronix was female. The adaptors were going to be as high or higher than a new wire set. I opted to just buy the new set. https://www.jegs.com/i/MSD-Ignition/121/ASY10124/10002/-1
  11. Pulled my original worn out oil burning motor and put in a pretty decent early 70's 302 with new cam, lifters, push rods and timing chain. Haven't driven it yet, but it sounds good and holds great oil pressure. Going to run this til I figure out what I am gonna do with the original motor.
  12. I have a summit 500 on my 302. I'm very happy with it. I replaced a 570 street avenger with it. No idea about tunability since I'm just running it more or less out of box minus air mix. It's a vac secondary.
