  1. Last Friday May 25th this engine was on the stand with crank & pistons installed Monday we fired it up started on the 2nd crank banged & popped 7 & 8 wires were reversed. Broke it in for 30 mins everything went fairly well. I didn't do that much except setup the MSD system. 460 cu in Ford, all MSD, 950 DP, Isky Cam, Springs & Roller Rockers, Offenhauser Manifold. https://photos.app.goo.gl/OtfAj2UnKd9t9tE12 https://photos.app.goo.gl/X2jx49TyN8JMDafy1
  2. Here's a clutch & brake setup that would be the correct one if the poster has it posted correctly. https://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/pts/d/1969-mustang-clutch-and/6589130416.html
  3. That's a good video explanation was easy to understand. The only thing I would add is after you've done your math to determine center line geometry I think his number was .355, 7.1 turns. I always use a dial indicator even though it's not necessary, either setup a 1" travel indicator or setup a standard indicator at the top of the throw & use .355 Jo block. I guess it's the machinist in me. Didn't mean to add a new twist the OP will be fine doing it that way in the video. Going to setup a 460 with an Isky cam, push rods & roller rockers later today or tomorrow for a boat good refresher video.
  4. These specs are for SA570 out of the box. Primary Main Jet 54 Primary Power Valve 8.5 Primary Pump Nozzle Size 31 Product Type 4150 Model Carburetor Secondaries Vacuum Secondary Main Jet 65 Supercharged Application No Mine is an older carb it came with 58 primary 66 secondaries & 31 pump nozzle. I found the 54 & 65 gave much better gas mileage & throttle response with one size down on the power valve. You can pull the primary bowl without removing the carb just disconnect the fuel line & 4 bowl screws. You can download the Holley doc's from their site with the list on your carb. https://www.holley.com/support/carburetor/
  5. When you adjusted the pump was the throttle cable disconnected? You need to adjust it at WOT to a snug fitting .015, if it's adjusted to tight it won't come back to idle like it should & you'll smell gas.
  6. No words can help they are more than just a family member never ending love that can always put a smile on your face when your down. We've owned German Shepherds since the late 60's we lost our last one to hip dysplasia 10 years ago we wanted another one but just can't take the pain of losing another friend. I honestly love our animals more than most people. We have a cat that's my baby going on 15 years dreading the day we lose her. I still get emotional thinking of our animals we've had during the years.
  7. AZ actually sells them but they are listed on their website as a 4 pin instead of 5 pin, Amazon also sells them. The part # varies N005W or DF005W they're both the same. I bought a case from Grainger for a bit over $10.00 I'm going to use them on the headlights also. https://www.autozone.com/electrical-and-lighting/relay-and-resistors/blazer-relay-and-resistors/548657_0_0 https://www.amazon.com/Blazer-International-Trailer-Towing-Accessories/dp/B00LCVZNPS
  8. Barnett, Question about a Scott Drake t-stat housing I had another brand on mine that leaked no matter what I did. Found & bought a concours oem ford tooling t-stat housing when I was ordering some other parts it's a SD part # is C50E-8592-A. Hasn't leaked a drip since I put it on. Does SD have a line of oem concours Ford tooling parts? With a line of over the counter AZ, O's, NAPA cheaper repros. I'll be buying some more interior parts like window cranks how can I order from you? I agree on almost everything you suggested especially the PPG paint it's one thing you don't want to go cheap, lesser quality paint can ruin a build. I haven't heard anyone say anything good about AAW wiring kits. Sorry about the hi-jack Trips I was running an old Pertronix 1 conversion till the dizzy finally wore out after trying a couple other setups I went to a Pertronix Stock Look Cast Dizzy they sell them as either 1 or 3. I used a relay to power the coil with 12 volts using the fused stock wire to energize the relay didn't need to run a new wire from the key & the fused wire is still there if it ever goes back to points. The PO owner had a big mess of wires under the dash one was the 12v power for the dizzy, I'm slowly getting rid of the mess. Here's the Pertronix 3 for a 351c https://www.summitracing.com/parts/pnx-d7134620?seid=srese1&cm_mmc=pla-google-_-shopping-_-srese1-_-pertronix&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI5dOE0bjd2gIVl8VkCh0ZOw0dEAYYAiABEgJ4wvD_BwE
  9. This type of relay is referred to as a Bosch or European style relay with dual #87 normally open N/O pins.Mostly used for powering a set of headlights etc. A relay with 1 #87 & 1 #87A is usually referred to as a common relay with #87 N/O & #87A N/C. When #30 triggers the relay #87A will change to N/O & 87 will change to N/C. I'll try switching pins with dizzy & coil next time I'm working on it. It's working good now I hate to touch it. I'll take some pics after the harness is cleaned up.
  10. Here's some pic's of a late 69 Mach 1 , early 69's had a domed head with C stamped on them if I remember right.
  11. It powers both the choke & dizzy here a pic of the relay wiring there are (2) #87 powered on connectors. They 2nd pic is with car running. #30 fused 12 volt power, #86 fused link from key, top #87 to dizzy, bottom #87 to choke, #85 to ground
  12. I took a different approach using a relay Blazer 30 amp N005W sp/st with 2 #87 connectors to power both the 12v choke & distributor. I ran a short fused wire from the plus side of the battery, since I wasn't using the fused 6v wire to the coil I used that as the power on for the relay. Ran 2 wires 1 to choke 1 to dizzy, still need to make a harness for it now that I know it works. It's been on there for over a month with no problems, plus I still have the fused coil wire if it ever goes back to a points system. There's a lot of good ideas in this thread Would have posted on this sooner if I had seen this thread.
  13. Glad to hear he fixed ya up. If anyone else needs a set I will have them till next weekend. Trading a couple boxes of OEM parts to a restorer buddy of Cougars & Mustangs for some windshield wiper parts.
  14. One other thought is to make sure wherever the ground wires are bolted on be sure to sand & clean the area of contact don't just rely on the bolt threads for a solid ground, then touch it up with some engine bay paint & cover it with dielectric I like using grounding blocks it gives you more connections in the future. I have a set of 16' Fluke cables that I can reach any point on the car to check continuity from all grounding points. I went through the car making sure I had continuity from neg battery to every grounding point I could find, I found several with poor connections. A bit off topic our last boat the PO had connected 12v grounds to the bonding side (120 volt system) & 120 volt grounds to some 12v grounds this led to stray current in the water when plugged into shore power which could have killed someone in the water or me in the bilge if there was water present. It took me several days of sorting out wires to get it correct. 4 AWG wire is plenty for your system here's a good calculator to to determine amp loss of anysize wire. http://www.calculator.net/voltage-drop-calculator.html?material=copper&wiresize=0.8152&voltage=12&phase=dc&noofconductor=1&distance=10&distanceunit=feet&amperes=60&x=86&y=18
  15. Same here I have 2 or 3 complete buckets 69 FoMoCo pm an address with zip for a shipping quote. The box size will probably make it pricey.
  16. I really don't get your point I wasn't arguing for either side of gun control or confiscation of guns all I stated is what's happened in this country's society over a long period of time. Just turned on the news there was another road rage murder on I-5 at 1:00 am this morning & an officer involved shooting of someone who ran a stop light. I've been hunting, target shooting & skeet shooting since I was 15 I shot 22's with my grandpa when I was 8 yrs old he died when I was 10. All I stated is how the system failed I have no answers this subject it has grown into another one of those divide the country issues. The US population is 5% of the world with over 35% of the worlds gun related deaths this includes accidental, suicide & murders. I would like to see some real debate on the subject with some real answers on a problem that seems to have grown into an epidemic. The opiod drug problem is called an epidemic, it is but who's to blame? The junkie that was prescribed a legal drug pushed by his doctor & pharma companies then cut off left addicted to buy illegal drugs. When small towns with a population of 250 to 3000 people purchase 9 million to 30 million pills who's at fault? ( google that one ) In my opinion our country is in a period of time where it controls it's own destiny we need real answers to real problems not arguments. If it fails to solve the problems we'll be another blip in history that failed. I'm too old to care for me it's my sons & grandson I care about. Hopefully the young folks movement that has started will bring some change just like other movements have this country was founded by a revolution. Our for profit prison system is another topic too long to discuss.
  17. We have seriously considered moving to either Australia or New Zealand still might, the only thing holding us back is our son & grandson. I've been around guns all my life when I was 15 I had to go through an NRA gun safety & shooting program to get a hunting license at 16. That grew into several years of state sanctioned indoor target shooting, my 2nd year I was ranked 2nd in the state. I think people in the US have grown numb to shootings & mass killings every night on the local news which we quit watching there is at least 1 killing. They can't be grouped into any one category it goes across all of society mentally ill, family arguments, gang bangers, drunks, idiots,. Dad shoots son or friend by accident the usual statement is the gun was empty I just cleaned it. If you pick up a firearm you better know the 1st rule point it downwards open the breach. Sadly the only requirement to own a rifle or gun is age must be over 21 for handguns over 18 for rifles even AR15 type & a broken background system to check for mental illness, felonies etc that's it no training buy it shoot it. It has come out the son who killed his parents bought it legally at a local gun shop waited the 7 days for a background check which he past with 1 felony assault & multiple mental health evaluations under the care of a psycho doctor taking some strong meds. His brother warned the dad that he was mad and on the way over there & called 911 sheriff they arrived to late. I have purchased & traded several firearms at the same shop I know the owner fairly well. I was looking at a new skeet rifle when someone came into pick up a pistol on the 8th day of the waiting period. He looked in the database told the guy the City of Buckley hadn't responded to the background check then handed him the gun. He told me it happens over 50% of the time, if the purchasers city of residence doesn't respond you get a gun doesn't matter if your wanted for murder.
  18. Take a piece of 1/4" to 1/2" rope make sure it's riding on the V groove not on the bottom of the pulleys rap it around, cut it to length. They can use for the correct diameter. Did this with Mercruiser engines with belts from 45" to 106"
  19. Wednesday about 7:00 pm we heard several helicopters didn't think much of it JBLM flys over quite a bit training. I spoke to my neighbor yesterday afternoon his brother in-law sub divided a parcel of land into 5 acre plots he had sold this plot next to his house last year the couple had just finished their house a few months. Yesterday when we left 3 sheriff suvs came down the road then 2 more black with blacked out windows suvs went by I was going the same way when we got near a small park there were about 8-10 police vehicles all parked in a group talking. Thought this was strange then we found out about the double homicide of the parents by their son. This happened less than a mile from our home. Sue mentioned she heard some gun shot's but didn't think much about it we're in a rural area hear gun fire all the time. Several months ago 2 brothers got into an argument & shot each other about 5 miles from us.So much for rural life if traffic weren't so bad we'd move to town. Here's the story21-year-old man accused of killing his parents near Buckley; victims identified | Q13 FOX News
  20. As many of you know since I bought the Mustang I've had problems with several 351W dizzys. It had a Motorcraft date correct with Pertronix Ignitor it was set up using 18L curve cams for 36* mechanical advance with light springs all in at 1800 rpm it had a worn breaker plate causing it to stick bushings were shot cost to repair & have it curved was almost $200 so I shelved it. I tried several off the shelf new & rebuilt dizzy's from the usual local parts stores all of them had problems either at start up or after a couple months. Bought a new Ready to Run Billet MSD it failed 2 hours out of the box. A couple weeks ago I bought a Pertronix Flame Thrower Stock Look dizzy with steel gear so far good. The workmanship is beyond what I expected it actually came deburred no sharp edges. Put it in fired before I could let go of the key. All I'm going to do now is get rid of the 2 junky looking 12 volt wires from the fuse block. Bought a 30 amp 5 prong relay to mount near the dizzy & choke to supply the 12 volts to both I have accumulated enough parts to put the date correct Motorcraft dizzy back together in the near future with all new parts the only parts used from it is the housing & shaft. . https://www.summitracing.com/parts/PNX-D134610
  21. I've run the Pre Made Taylor 8mm wires since I bought the Mustang. Nice kit all the wires were made to fit the Ford Racing Harness perfect fit great boots that seal. I've had problems with other brand universal fit brands definitely would recommend Taylor for the price & quality.
