    Stock rods are not too safe after 6. Stock rod bolts too? What valves are you running? The cam and 2v heads will probably save you getting from higher RPM anyway.

    I use this stuff (Sta-Lube). Be sure to use non-synthetic gear oil GL4  85/90 weight and don't forget the additive for the trac-Loc rear end.  Pictures won't load sorry.  Brian

    Why not just buy a regular jug of Prestone and top it yourself with distilled water ? Cheaper that way

    69 Flip style. Lift the tab to open.  You may have a twist style? In any event a bit of tinkering may be needed. Wise and mature to ask.  FWIW a good time to compare your dash gas gauge reading to the actual amount needed to fill up.  Brian

    I put a point on my soldering iron just for this job.  Going a bit anal I also put some blue tape on top of the carpet before drilling any holes.  Makes it a bit easier to see where the hole is drilled and where to burn thru with the iron.  Brian

    I have never had a hood blow up ,but i always run hood pins ,my brother let a 69 hood blow clean off the car ,it went clear over the car and landed in the middle of the road ,he didnt have the hood pins on ! I have worked on many Mustangs that had the hood blow up or off and smash the front of the roof and rip out the hinge nuts taking them with the hood ,hood pins are one of the best safety features you can have!

    You may take a look at the headlight assembly as well.  Some or all of the parts could go on before installing the fender. Brian

    Same problem.  On the bright side it's not a bandwidth problem. Brian

    I just reinstalled mine for about the 50th time. The screw holes on the clock bezel on mine are not countersunk, they are flat.

    Thanks.  I did take a look.  The pedal support is a 70 and the clutch pedal is a 70.  Can't see the date on the brake pedal but will guess it's a 70 as well?  So, close, but not what I am looking for.  Thanks again.  Brian

    Brian Conway got a reaction from Grabber70Mach in Restored 69 Carb   
    I got a hold of a date and numbers correct carburetor last month.  Got it off ebay and after a little barter/swap I 'made an offer'.  Seller accepted and I had a shop, J and J Carburetors, rebuild and restore to original specs. I Installed a choke kit, bent a new fuel line, hooked up the pcv and installed on my 69 Cobra Jet.  A little fiddling around with the idle and the choke's fast idle speeds and we are back on the road.  All in all I am very satisfied with how it all turned out.  Gotta say the carb shop did a great job.  Three weeks turn around including shipping, no extra's, ran it before sending it back and did it for the price quoted.  Brian

    Generally speaking for an original system; the curved arm is for a 69 and the straight arm is for the 70.  The brake switch fits onto the brake pedal post. The switches can be for manual brakes or power brakes.  Brian

    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?
