  1. I know the 65 and 66 has to be cut but my 69 fit without cutting . Could be difference in some cars I don't know.
  2. don't have to cut the colum tube but need to collapse the enter shaft back a little.
  3. The tanks inc tank is a larger capacity which will put the filler tube at a different angle. Your remedy of cutting the tube is what I did, and it worked perfect. However there is a after market tube that will work, that was made to correct this issue. I have seen them on ebay before .
  4. Sold my 69 fastback the other day but the set up was 351 Windsor, rpm performer intake, FiTec, 2 inch filter and no spacers. I had 1 inch hood clearance
  5. smh00n i was under the impression that the Sniper was the same as FiTech when it comes to controlling timing. The FiTech does not need any external boxes just a two wire distributor such as the old Ford durospark.
  6. It is my understanding that the FiTech will cut spark and fuel about 200 rpm's over set point using timing control or not. Maybe the Sniper doesn't I'm not sure about it.
  7. FiTech has rev limiter and I thought the Sniper did too. The old durospark ford distributor will work with FiTch too and assume will work with Sniper also.
  8. Yes from center to center. If u use an explorer DS it has a companion flange that will need to be removed.
  9. I don't know about the 4x4 either but I'm thinking the 4x4 rear drive shaft is a little shorter.
  10. water is 8..34 pounds per gallon, I have used five gallon pails filled with water to distribute the weight around. Maybe a couple in the rear seat area and some in the trunk
  11. I used an aluminum drive shaft from a 1998 2 door 2 wheel drive V8 explorer. As RPM said the rear end yoke makes a difference. Can't remember the length I am thinking around 51 inches
  12. are u changing the rear from a 4 lug to 5 lug or has it already been changed?
  13. About 1 " as you have is golden. Depending on the condition of leaf springs matters too. The more the arch in the spring is compressed the more the drive shaft will be pulled back. Get a 200 pound buddy to sit on the back and see where the drive shaft ends up. Unless u have a lot of arch in your springs I would say u are good
  14. Is that measurement taken with the weight on the leaf springs ? If so you are good
  15. You may be fine using the stock timing cover but they are different from the timing covers with rev rotation pumps. the ports in the timing cover is machined at a different angle. May be worth checking out would be ashame for that nice looking engine to have a cooling problem.
