    Remote jumper cable posts - good or bad?

    The remote jumper terminals are really meant for race cars so they don’t have to open the battery box or don’t have to try to get in a confined space to attach the clamps. also if you have a street rod and you have hidden the battery under the floor, under the bed, under a seat...etc. they allow you to jump your car without taking things apart
  2. As said the difference is in the depth of the console insert. You can leave it as is and run it. If the gap bother you, you can also make a shim that would move the boot up to fill the gap

    heads questions

    Just because you port the heads does not mean just make them bigger. on the exhaust side the ford heads are so restricted that going bigger is the first step. But a lot of porting is to get the best flow out of the size of port you have/create. when I do porting I always want to know what the customer wants out of the car. And that drives how much I port and how big I make things. this is why you will find that companies that make the aftermarket heads will have several versions of their heads and will list the port volume. That way you can best match what heads are for your application with stock heads it would be hard to make them too big as you can only go so far

    MSD ignition box placement

    I put mine on the driver inner fender panel, but a friend mounted his under the dash, he then split the tape on the gauge harness and ran the wire with that and rewraped the harness. you would have to look very carefully to see that he had an MSD or anything added

    heads questions

    I used to port and rebuild heads all the time. It was good money for a while. since the newer wave of aftermarket heads have come out, not that many people are willing to pay to have their heads ported. personally I see your situation two ways, port what you have and rebuild them. You can even do the porting yourself. or just but aftermarket heads ready to go. if you price the difference between new valves, port Work, hard seats, labor, etc, you may find there is little difference between the rebuilt heads and the new aluminum heads

    Head and cam combo

    Keep in mind that you only need the bigger headers, carb and exhaust for the higher RPMs. if you are not spending much time at those higher RPMs then going bigger can lose low end response as well as mileage for exhaust, 2” is fine. 2 1/4 is good, and unless you plan to be at wide open throddle a bunch then the 2 1/2 is really too big do your research and you will find there are cam grinds available for the edelbrock, TFS, AFR heads that are designed for those heads. some other places have build sheets that show example engine they build and what the dyno results are for decent bargain aluminum heads you can look at the skip white heads

    Narrowed 8.8 rear end

    It gives you rear disc brakes, a posi, and 373 gears. if you just want the rear disc brakes all you have to do is take the rear disc set from an explorer or crown Vic and swap them onto the 8” or 9” you already have. explorer for the big bearing crown Vic for the small bearing

    70 rear brakes locking

    Check that the disc brake cars don’t use different wheel cylinder. i know in the 65-6 models if you have a disc brake car the rear wheel cylinder are a different size. The prop valve will be calibrated to that designed balance.

    Car gender?

    Cars that are expensive and need constant attension or they won’t run are female for sure

    Car Trailer

    I have had both i like the steel bed better. the wood bed trailers are cheaper, it the wood will need replaced at some point. A.so if you need to drag machinery onto a trailer the wood bed makes it harder

    Rear Frame Rail

    You still may want to get another car to use as a donar if you start to replace large sections or lots of pieces. you may be able,to find a bare body with roof damage cheaper than buying a bunch of repo metal
  12. Do a search on the web somone has already solved this. i was looking at it as I will be adding a factory tach to my car and I have a pertronics and MSD

    Tow Hook/Straps

    For the rear I made ones that go between the shock plate and the leaf spring. They also incorporate the location to connect the rear sway bar for the front I was going to weld a plate with loop to the front bumper bracket. When I boxed my lower arms I should have welded a loop to the lower arm at the time easiest thing is to go to Cobra Automotive and they make ones that clamp to the rear axle and bolt,to the same bolts that hold the strut rod to the lower arm

    Seat riser repositioning?

    I don’t ever move the seat pan. i modify the seat tracks to move the seats back

    66 Aussie Falcon

    That car is cool. I would even put up with the steering wheel being on the wrong side if they wanted to give it to me
