  1. All American Car Show Australia

    Holy cow. What a great looking bunch of cars. I am not surprised that there are nice old cars in Australia but I never realized how popular U.S. made classics are down there.
  2. No. No. No. And if that is a Ford shaker hood, Hell No. Dave R.
  3. 428 CJ Fuel Pump issue

    What brand of pump Ridge Runner? Dave R.
  4. 428 CJ Fuel Pump issue

    I also remember a paper element but not sure if it was Holley or aftermarket. Dave R.
  5. 428 CJ Fuel Pump issue

    I recall a porous filter that went inside the bowl inlet. Looked like a stone but was bronze colored. Dave R.
  6. 428 CJ Fuel Pump issue

    Brian, is that a filter on the suction side of your fuel pump? I have always heard that a filter should be on the pressure side of the pump. Especially a mechanical pump. Whatever works I guess. Dave R.

    +1 on snugging the screws. The pump is obviously working, somewhat. The seeping must be stopped before any other problem can be diagnosed. Dave R.
  8. The '69 filler neck has a small notch on the rim of the neck where the cap gasket seals against the neck. I think the notch is located near the 12 o'clock position on the neck rim. That small notch is the vent for the tank. If the gasket is being forced into the notch, maybe the gasket is getting old and soft?, that might seal the notch closed. I think the '70 used a smooth neck and a vented cap. This was just discussed a couple of weeks ago on one of the Mustang forums but I don't remember which one. Dave R.
  9. I've never had a 302 apart but doesn't the oil from the valve springs/rockers drain back through the head gasket? Dave R.

    Good choice topless. I like mine. Just finished cleaning them, and the rest of the car, up for a show this weekend. They look fabulous. Dave R.

    Well, since we have effectively high jacked this thread is the NAPA sender accurate? How long ago did you get it from NAPA? Dave R.

    Agreed. But just because Drake specs out a part to be made for them doesn't necessarily mean that part is going to be OEM quality. The fuel sender we have available for instance. Dave R.

    My guess is that the Drake wheel is a Wheel Vintiques wheel. I don't think Drake actually manufactures anything, just resells parts from various manufacturers. Drake may have parts made specifically for them to sell but my understanding is they are like CJ Pony, NPD and all the rest of the Mustang warehouses. I don't mean to sound critical. For all I know Wheel Vintiques may be reselling wheels made by someone else. No matter who owns the Mach 1 in the picture, it is gorgeous. Wow. Dave R.

    I think Wheel Vintiques has the 15" GT wheels and trim rings. Not 100% sure that is where I saw them. Dave R.

    I chose those wheels because I liked the GT wheel look and didn't like the trim rings very much. The biggest reason for my going 15" is tire selection. Tons more to choose from and that little bit bigger tire fills the wheel well openings better. Just my opinion. The stock GT wheel in chrome without the trim rings makes a cleaner look in my eyes. Good luck. Dave R.
