  1. I'll be there all weekend with the Cobra Jet .
  2. Yes thanks, I'm looking of an original set (date code correct) for my car.
  3. Going to look at a set of chrome 69 Mach1 wheels. Is their any thing I should be looking for? Thanks, Tim
  4. If you ever get a chance watch the first season of TOP GEAR . It was so lame It wasn't even funny. The audience was made up of the production staffs families. It takes time to build the kind of chemistry that they have today in the UK. Just be patient. They must use what they know will work then work in the American style. Just my 2cents
  5. That sucks, They make you pay to register an antique plate every two years. In Pa. You pay a one time fee, and you own the plate. The only fee you pay on the Antique tag in Pa. is when you transfer it to another vehicle. Does that tag come with driving restrictions? Can't be used as daily driver ect.
  6. You can make more power cheaper if you use a 429-460. Parts are more available than 428. Just use one piece export brace and monte carlo bar to keep the towers from sagging from the weight.
  7. There is a company that makes them. It's the same towers that are used of the 4.6L conversion. The 4.6L and the 429-460 are almost the same size engines. I'll have to see if I can find the link.
  8. Not sure if this is new or not. Was just working on the computer and saw the four headlights on in a barn. Started watching the video The black fastback is the theme of the video. sweet car. I'll have to look on you tube for the video.
  9. I used to have a Cross Boss intake for a Clevor I built years ago. Worked pretty well.
  10. I have purchased items from them and never had any problems. No suspention stuff though.
  11. +1 Bill did my shifter he does nice work.
  12. That's with in the region that a race.(93 mustang) Not sure if we'll be in Dayton area next year: we were at I think it was Thorton Hill this year. I'll let you know
  13. You should be just fine. The gears should make a big difference. Plus you have ported aluminium heads lightweight and better flowing. 13's is very respectable for theses big cars. I think you could hit the 12's with some sticky street radials!!!! Any more HP and they are not very street-able. The best part is when you light them up though 1st,2nd and bark 3rd on the street. A good looking car with some nuts gets a lot of respect on the street. Keep us posted on your runs. Where ya located ?
  14. Engine is .30 over not sure on compression 10.5 to 11.0 Cam 554/556 lift hydraulic 750 carb(to small) Heads cast iron just cleaned up turns with headers. The run was threw full 2 1/2 exhaust.
  15. My Osborn electrical manual shows the light is located looking from the rear of the car, it is on the left back edge of drivers side of the trunklid. Tim
  16. I'm running 13.5's @ 103 with 325rwhp on 245 street tires. I only have 3:25 gears. You should run low 13's The hardest part is getting out of the hole. I was scared to run my car to. Just shift at no more than 5,500 rpm. These motors are only good till 5,200 to 5,500 rpm. Numbers from the time slip: 60ft 2.099, 330-5.794, 1/8-8.775 @ 81.89, 1000ft-11.336, 1/4-13.52 @ 103mph Hope this helps, Tim
  17. Mounted mine same location but with industrial Velcro. My engine runs hot (428 CJ + headers) but no problems with box failure. Plus no holes and can remove it in seconds. Great anti theft. I'll try to attach pics
  18. I think it's on the under side near were the pedestals attach. C9- or D0-.
  19. They only came on the Boss 302 in 69. May be dealer option on Boss429 but doubt it. It was an option on the 70 mustangs. Whats the part number?
  20. My car was almost in the Peter Jackson movie "Lovely Bones" But the prop master said the car was to nice for what they wanted:huh:. Well I took it as a complement. He was impressed by the car. They said if they used the car I could be on the set. I could give the actor/actress technical info on how to drive the car. I would be very skeptical of letting them have free reign with my car. There's always the future.
  21. Hey Guys, I survived my day at the track with the Mach1 with out breaking any thing:001_smile:. Traction was an issue to say the lest. But I was able to get it down the track. I ran a 13.52 @ 102.63 with a 60ft time of 2.099. I then ran a 13.59 @ 103.77 with a 60ft time of 2.141. The last two times I went up in smoke trying different launches. One run My 60ft time was 3.02:sad: Over all a learning experience. Not sure if I should bolt up the ET streets. Not sure if the fly wheel can hold the torque. I don't need the flywheel coming apart and flying trough the floor. Tim
  22. Jump over to the Cobra Jet registry site. www.428cobrajet.org Tim
  23. I use the Jim Osborn Manuals They make several different manuals Chassis,Engine Electrical. This is his web site. www.osborn-reproduction.com
  24. Hello, I'm getting ready to run my Mach 1 at the local drag strip. I'm going to run the car one day with just street tires, then with M/T street radials a few days later. The car is a close ratio four speed Top loader. My other car I race is Auto with a modern suspension and easier to launch. Besides launching in Second gear can any one recommend an RPM for launching on street tires and cheater slicks. Thanks, Tim
  25. I run 20W-50 Penzoil with STP oil treatment. Never had a problem, and I run my car extremely hard.
