    If one side fits good but other side does not, why don't you measure the right and left side glass and see if they are the same?

    Been running the Autolte 45's forever.  In my 289 as well as the 428.  Reliable with consistent quality. Under $3.00 each but steadily creeping up.  Brian

    I think you are right to be troubled about the flex-plate.  That would be my first guess. Brian

    The recent discussion about axle housings got me curious and would like to ask for some confirmations or corrections.  As I recall I took these measurements with the car up on jack stands.  So some areas are hard to get at and probably not accurate down to the 1/4".  Thanks Brian

    I run a Holley 3310-1 on my 428.   Car/motor w/manual stock 4 speed and 3.25 rear gear runs pretty good at all speeds.  Congratulations on the fix.  Carbs can be tricky to dial in. What bugs me?  6.5 mpg.  Sometimes I feel like doing something about it.  Then I remember; " if it ain't broke ".  Brian

    Your car is a 70, 351 w/ manual drum brakes?  Does your brake pedal pivot look like this one?   Could have ordered/installed the wrong master cylinder?   https://mustangsteve.com/product-category/master-cylinders-for-classic-fords

    Brian Conway got a reaction from RPM in Difference between Tail Light panels, 69 &70   
    FWIW; my 69 quarter extensions are fiberglass and are C9ZB-11-C and 10 C.  The 69-taillight panel is definitely curved top to bottom.  Fitment on exterior tops and sides is quite good.  With the trunk lid open gaps are obvious on both sides and in different locations.  I think the outward appearance was/is more important than the symmetry.  Brian

    Brian Conway got a reaction from KMD88 in Mentorships and where to find them?   
    The motor, carb and intake info might help?  Idle mixture screws are a great start.  Easy to do and undo. We all like to work on acceleration.  Professional tuning is usually best left alone.  That said with the help of a tach (so you will have a base rpm) you could adjust the idle rpm's using the idle adjustment screw.  Brian

    Doesn't make the manifold bad.  Does make the 'lower oil baffle' bad.  The purpose for the baffle is two-fold.  Provide an insulated area below the carb. pad from hot air and hot oil splash.  Brian

    Brian Conway got a reaction from RPM in 69 Fuel Sender   
    OK got some new info and the results are ... it's the dash gauge and Rocketman is the recommended vendor for recalibration. I did put the Spectra FG 86B in the car Oct. 10, 2019  at 20,280 miles.  Kept a record of gas fill ups, ohm readings and mileage.  End result was with the gas gauge needle dead on E I got a 65 ohm reading. I still had about 5 gallons of gas in the tank.  Bill Basore at Desert Classic Parts refurbished my C9WE-9275-A Sender.  I installed it yesterday, at 22,325 miles, with much the same results.  With an empty tank and the needle below  E  I got a 66 ohm reading.  With 3 gallons in the tank I got a 53 ohm reading and with 20 gallons, at $6.70 a gallon, I got a 10 ohm reading.  I called Basore, relayed my findings and he confirmed the dash gauge was the problem. Basore took a bit more time to explain the why and how but that's the short story.   When I pulled the Spectra unit the float had an eyedropper of gas in it.  Other than that the Spectra sender did a good job.  Because I am not taking my dash apart to get the gauge out, right away, I will live with Empty means 3 gallons of gas in the tank.  Close enough.  Brian
