  1. Do not believe that is the issue as the entire front runner system was provided by CVF racing, all particular to the 351W with standard pulley direction (clockwise). They provided the AC compressor, alternator, Saginaw pump & reservoir, along with the pulleys and belt. Directions were followed and double checked...accessories and belt can only go on one way.
  2. Nope, 6AN pressure out from pump to 9/16 lower port of rack. 5/8 return from upper port of rack to 6AN of remote reservoir. 10AN from remote reservoir (with baffle) to 10AN return side of pump. Remote reservoir is located above pump, straight line, unobstructed gravity route
  3. Brand new crate engine start up with new TCI Rack & Pinion along with CVF Racing Saginaw pump w/remote reservoir. Within a minute power steering fluid started blowing out the vent cap of the remote reservoir. I double checked the hoses, no leaks and all connected to proper ports (high pressure/returns), bled the system by turning wheels lock to lock on jack stands about 10 times. Every time I start the engine this happens, needless to say I have a serpentine system so breaking in the engine w/o pump is not an option.Thoughts, anyone have a similar issue? Other than that the Holley Sniper EFI is great, crate engine start up within two seconds, nice idle...need to address the steering fluid issue so I can break the engine in.
  4. I did the same set up as RPM and Vic, no issues.
  5. Looking for exhaust options. I have a 69 Mach 1 with a Heidts four link, coil over, & panhard bar set up along with Heidts X-Brace. Interested to know if anyone had luck with a packaged system (Flowmaster, Magna Flow, Pypes, etc.) or am I looking at full custom? Understand a custom pipe will be required from the JBA header flange to the main system within the trans tunnel if a packaged system is available. Unfortunately the vendors say the systems are for stock OEM cars and cannot confirm the fit will work in my application. Don't want to be buying packaged systems only to pay the freight of returning same. Suggestions are welcome.
  6. I went with the sniper on my 408, along with the Holley dual sync distributor, and Holley 69 EFI fuel tank, all plug and play.
  7. Working on the Vintage Air, replacement front runner system, and electrical. New mods as my original thought was no A/C. To change to AC required a new pulley system which CVF racing agreed to take my mocked up system in exchange for the upgraded Wraptor single belt serpentine. Nice folks to work with. Taking electrical cues from Vicfreg, he put the thought into it which allows others to follow, shout out to Vic!
  8. Lambert Airport is approx 40 minutes away, the Arch (downtown St Louis) is in the middle of the two.
  9. Awesome work, thanks for the time to share and post, very much appreciated.
  10. I'm on the Illinois side of STL, visit Gateway Classic Cars in O'Fallon, IL, http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com/ http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com/location/STL
  11. Was interested in the under dash, around the evaporator and penetration point. I have the bulkhead connector kit along with the hose kit, seems like a straight forward process. Since I smoothed over my firewall my location points are gone. Figured I'd hang the front, then level out and mark the inner firewall. Any tips to make it easier?
  12. Not that it helps now, but the crimp on style are much more cost effective at ~$110, even with the purchase of the ~$130 Master Cool crimping tool (from amazon). Do appreciate the pic. Did you use the vintage air bulk head, or grommet and insulation wrap? Can I bug you for an inside pic?
  13. Here ya go...https://www.fordmuscleparts.com.au/shop/products/show/id/4759
  14. Regarding the vintage air, assume you went with the bulkhead, do you have some close up's of what you did...can barely see it in this pic?
  15. Thanks Vic, I am going to customize the routes for the AC/Heater lines, going with a bulkhead set up, not using the original locations (maybe through the fender well area) will be the weekend project. Picked up the Master Cool die crimper to make the AC lines. Need to get the evaporator mounted so I know how much room I have for lines and electric. I smoothed over the firewall so finding the location to mount same is challenging....or at least a pain in the back...literally.
  16. No, still in build process, pretty confident on the Wilwood system (4 piston Wilwood calipers w/14" drill and slotted rotors). More pics of brake system on project forum - 69 Mach 1 / 408W.
  17. No, the pushrod has plenty of adjustment, a few twist back and forth and she was dialed in. More of the pain came from bench bleeding, difficult to bench bleed and install w/fluid in as you can see from the paint removal at the frame rail. Thought I had enough plastic and towels but the dang fluid ran down and starting eating the paint. Make sure you wash all the area after connections are made.
  18. I went with manual Wilwood w/proportioning valve as my motor will lack vacuum. Best price I found was Amazon. I made the backer plate out of aluminum. No issues, worked well.
  19. Lots of goodies the past few weeks. Built out my power distribution system in the trunk (Thanks Vic for inventing the wheel). Decided to go with a Vintage Air System, though plans did not call for same, so the front pulley system came off for a new front runner. Luckily, the team from CVF Racing agreed to the return of the mocked up system for an upgrade to the Wraptor single belt serpentine one.
  20. I went with JBA ceramic coated, they fit perfect...but I do not have shock towers.
  21. Question, how much clearance is there for the 9 pin transmission controller connector on the passenger side of the 4R70W? The trans sits too high in the tunnel to fit the connector. One option is to use a hole say and drill through the passenger floor for the clearance and mock op some kind of access panel...looking for guidance/suggestions.
  22. Vic, talk about the NB-100 controller for your fans. Why did you go this route versus the coolant sensor and relays.
  23. What is the title of the thread? Tried to find same, no luck
