  1. These control arms are the Moog problem solver brand part #CK8123 from Rock Auto. They have a less expensive Moog part listed on their site.
  2. https://youtu.be/JPuVxIYLNXM I installed new lower control arms and now the lower ball joints have movement in them like they are worn out. Has any else had this problem?
  3. https://youtu.be/UqImonFarVw I wasn't sure if this vintage Ford intake manifold would work with my shaker hood assembly until it was installed. See how it worked out. Ray
  4. I would like to install headers on my 69 Mach1 351W automatic. What have you used on your car and do they really fit well. How have they held up over time from rust or cracking. Is stainless or ceramic coated the best choice. Any info would be very helpful. Thanks, Ray
  5. If I install a T5 in my 69 Mach1 will the shifter line up with the hole in the center console? Ray
  6. Can anyone recommend front brake pads for my stock 69 Mach1? Everywhere I've looked the reviews are terrible. Most are missing the guide pin holes on the outside pad. Thanks, Ray
  7. Thanks for all the nice comments and the ribbing LOL. Can't believe I'm still laying under these old cars and fixing shit! On the other hand I'm blessed to be able to do it. Ray
  8. Hi Sam, Glad you found my video useful. I understand why you don't want to do this more then once because I just turned 70. Can't believe I'm still doing this shit after all these years. Everything in my dash is still working well and I hope it stays that way. I will need to go though some paperwork to see where the parts came from. Mine still has the original gauges except for the amps. I wasn't aware that there are new gauges available. Will get back to you after I find my invoices. Take care, Ray
  9. New radio, front speaker. speedo cable. circuit board, VR, clock Youtube video https://youtu.be/G-toANkbclY
  10. I really like my red stripes with the black seats and red stripe. I think you should go that route. Ray
  11. Mine is the real deal and I forgot about the adjustments for the scoop. Thanks for reminding me that they are there. I had the whole assembly apart last winter and saw how they work. Thanks, Ray
  12. Thanks for warning me about the clear coat because I was thinking about using that. Maybe I'll look into high heat silver paint. Ray
  13. Now that it looks like it will fit I was wondering what to do with the finish on this manifold. It has been sand blasted and has a very rough surface finish. I don't want to paint it Ford blue but if left raw aluminum it'll start looking pretty ugly after a while. Any ideas?
  14. The gasket surface at the water passages looks good at the front but there is some minor corrosion at the blocked off ones at the rear. I'll post some photos later today. Ray
