  1. Source: http://www.discbrakeswap.com/swap.3.3M 65-66 manual brakes 3rd edition 03292017 E.pdf :-)
  2. It's your hoster not the internet provider of any user. I get the same message when I try to go to 69stang.com. 1969stang.com does work indeed.
  3. This is what the 1969 Service Specs manual says...
  4. I will have to install the weatherstrip also and was wondering what side of the weatherstrip is the right one to be glued. The larger or smaller one?
  5. Yes, I know. Had no others at hand when I put the rear axle in.
  6. Thank you guys! I think I will order the Howards cam barnett468 recommended. Sorry that I forget half of my suspension data. I have the Bilstein shocks front and rear plus 4.5 leaf mid eye springs in the rear, but the wrong shackles installed atm. The front springs are Grab-A-Trak progressive springs. The car seems a little high, but there's no engine installed right now. Subframe connectors are not allowed on cars with historical registration in Germany but I have a rear stabilizer bar also. lca reinforment plates are waiting to be installed in the winter. I think the setup is not that bad for a classic mustang :-)
  7. Good point! I thought about getting adjustable engine mounts before, but will test fit that setup first. Ok so let's drop that speed limit thing, I'll save that for the stroker ;-) 90-100 mph should be possible with a more conservative camshaft, right? I do enjoy daily driving in summer nd the car should be streetable too. I really don't know much about cams, but what can I expect from a Comp XE262H: https://www.summitracing.com/int/parts/cca-35-238-3/overview/make/ford It's a bit more conservative in all manners but isn't that more drivable?

  8. It‘s not a roller block. 1988 was one of the first EFIs. I will change it to a carb intake. I have an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake and an 650 AVS carb. For the German highway speeds, i should be able to go 100-120 mph (won‘t go that fast often though).
  9. I'm getting a stock 1988 351W from an Econoline van and would like to put it in my Mach 1. For a little bit more power I have a pair of Windsor jr. iron heads and Hooker Super Competition Headers, hoping to raise the compression to about 9.3-9.5:1 with the heads. It's a 5-speed car with 3.55:1 differential. My intention is to drive it on the street and take it to a race track 1-2 times in a year. What cams would you recommend? It should be a budget build, because the plan is to put a 393W stroker in the engine bay in about 2 years. Any help is appreciated!

    Best bumpers?

    I'm in the process of putting my Mach 1 back together. I bought the NPD bumpers in 2013, they are from Golden Legion. I don't know if these are the "good ones" already, but I'm not completely happy with the rear bumper. It's pretty light and I think it's wider than it's supposed to be. I haven't checked the front bumper yet, though... Does NPD have another set of bumpers now? The part numbers are the same today and when I ordered them.
