  1. Mach 1, you maybe right, I thought he was talking about the brake booster - which I highly recommend sending it in for a rebuild and not replacing. however, I've seen some rebuilders do both MC and booster so that still could be a thing. in regards to the MC, its probably cheaper to get a replacement online, like summitracing, napa, oreilly auto and getting shipped if none are local, he just needs to know his bore size and swap over the pushrod before he tosses the old MC. I do recall some stores use to sell rebuild kits for MCs back in the day, but I think its just cheaper to replace now. My other suggestion is for op try http://www.chockostangclassicmustang.com/ and see what he recommends he knows his OE brake/steering stuff.
  2. just rebuild your unit, send it to that company in the video or the one I linked, or find someone local. not hard to look up in google search engine, plenty of vendors that can rebuild your unit.
  3. I think thats the best route, aftermarket boosters don't last a year before failing again. Find a local rebuilder in Texas, you can usually ship them if they are faraway. I use these guys as they are local to me, but plenty of ppl ship it to them for rebuilds. Definitely worth the wait if you can't find a builder near you.

  4. gonna be tough with the brand, I bought it years ago but its a 24" 2 or 3 row I believe. for now, ill just do a prestone 50/50 since its already premixed and ill add a additive to help with cooling/lubricate the water pump. my go was driven CSP, but going to try VP Racing Cool Down Additive. VMF woodchuck helped I will also add a Sacrificial anode to help with electrosys.
  5. I noticed my upper rad hose is swelling, so I figured a rad flush is in order. what coolant brand/ratio do you recommend? Livin in CA, temps around around 35-80+ depending on the season. Running 351w Man-o-war block made of nickel-iron-alloy AFR Aluminum heads and aluminum 24" Radiator w/ 13 lbs rad cap. also in regards to replacing the upper hose, do you add sealant at the water neck or leave as is? also, what water recommendations do you recommend? I've read distilled water is good/bad I have a disposable filtration system connected to my garden hose, would that work or should I just get the 50/50 mix and call it a day?
  6. LT dont hang that low, not like some 289-302s headers. Since 351w are a taller deck, they tucker under pretty well, I run an external clutch slave/fork from MDL and everything clears including the p/s drop, never had an issue. The only thing that hangs real low is the magndaflow exhaust kit, the mufflers will scratch first prior than the LT headers and I run SOT Front coilovers and 3link rear.
  7. I run these on my 427w, https://www.summitracing.com/parts/hed-88308/make/ford/model/mustang/year/1969 I did have to use a drop bracket for the p/s setup, I highly recommend these heavy dutiy versions than the cheap ones scott drake sells as those will tear the frame eventually: https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/e5h21.html?a=GoogleProductSearch&sessionthemeid=26&srsltid=AfmBOorzfz3pRboxGCNDMK_5GMyl_bgodvJtNP4k9-UsJRaI89fhn4GVMfw
  8. Hi @Brian Conway cant see the pics, seems the site is still going through spam issues. Feel free to email pics djash03@gmail.com if you want. Still deciding on which I like best, I've seen a couple of Distinctive Industries/TMI so I might pull the trigger DI.
  9. Picked up a set of 70 Mach 1 seats with the grey stripe with minor tears but showing its age. I am wondering who makes the best covers? So far its TMI, Disctinctive Industries and Cobranda are the only companies that make them. Has anyone used cobrandas covers? The description says its has the correct grain/weave pattern. Also, how hard is it to change it the cover? I did my std buckets but wasn't sure if there is anything different with the High buckets.
  10. I run 18x10 with a 1/2 spacer without issue, your main concern is the tire size width and height. Depending on the tire brand you may need to roll the fender lip. I running 275s/35/18 but I've seen ppl go wider but you may need a BFH to hit the inner wheel well.
  11. its tough for sure, but adding ublock or adblack extension on your browser can help block the pop ups (if any). Glad its moving on to a new server Ben. Let us know if there is anything we can assist with.
  12. Happy to help, if you need an extra mod.
  13. It's prestiges motorsports 520hp crate option: Man-o-war Block AFR 195 Renegades Weiand Stealth Intake Brawler 750cfm Headman 1 5/8 headers w/ 2.5 x-pipe Magnaflows fitted with a Roller Cam (see cam card)
  14. Took the car to a dyno session a few months back made a few more ponie, defintely alot of torque on the low end (due to the Stealth intake) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc0BdMBcYCE Engine Dyno: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oa61GsZJFcQ Happy with the results regardless, eventually I want to upgrade to a single plane intake and hit a higher RPM but need to find a nice intake that will fit under the stock hood.

  15. Ridge, not sure what browser you are using on mobile phone (looks to be android?), but I suggest going into the browser settings make sure the ad block feature is enabled or download firefox which tends to be more protective of blocking tracker/ads.
