  1. Ya that shaker is one of my better purchases. It was on a boat for sale on the side of the road. The extra height of the shaker thru the hood isn't too obnoxious, so I'll keep it as is. That's good to know info on the 95 amp single belt, thanks. Back in 2006 I bought just the cradle from Ride Tech for their triangulated arms. I made the arms and axle brackets pretty easily. It does make routing exhaust out the back a royal pain, but I like side exit. The upper arms are short, ~12", and less than 50% of the lower arm length, which is not optimal. The arms do eliminate axle wrap, and keep the axle from lateral movement. If I had to spend retail pricing for a rear kit I wouldn't do it. Thanks for the info Terry.
  2. 1) Weeell... I have a 351w and my $25 shaker is for a 428cj. So I thought the easy way (wrong again) to fix the fit would be to lower the motor. 2) Currently no PS or AC, but I'm collection parts for a mostly stock AC. 3) 100 amp, I think. 4) No. I lowered the motor and trans the same amount. But I have a triangulated 4 bar rear suspension which makes it easy. Ya, I can't leave well enough alone on my car.
  3. Ya, one of those unnamed avatar names is me, but I'm getting closer to undoing the electric fans and serpentine belt crap. I've raised the motor and trans back up at the expense of the shaker sitting higher than stock. But being able to run stock fan and dual V belts more than outweighs it.
  4. Welcome to the club Ray. You need to post two more things to complete your membership and recieve instructions for the secret handshake: pictures of your 69, and where you're located.

    How old id your little buddy, 7 or 8? He looks like quite the helper, engaged and all.
  6. Ya... but Lee Majors kicked her out of the house. There's an old saying that goes... for every beautiful woman, there's a guy who's tired of £@#%ing her.
  7. Great news. Now do a smokey burnout in that B2 for us. And don't forget to post a pic for us :)
  8. From the party of tolerance. Censorship works wonderfully... in communist countries. We're fucked.
  9. Politicians in general don't think of consequences or unintended consequences. Were not electric street cars in use years ago? If electric vehicles have no downside, why did they go away for 100 years?
  10. For $50 I'd think they'll sell quickly.

    Skynet's coming.

    I believe it was George Carlin who many years ago had a piece on eliminating the word man. The bit ended on the job title mail man. Mail person was to be used until they found mail sounds like male, so it was better to use the words person person instead of mail man. Who knew Carlin would be so prophetic in his gig.
  12. Fly Mach 1 driver out for a week, he'll get it fixed right in no time. But Midlife is driving distance, so... :)

    Skynet's coming.

    No employee sick day call ins, no workers comps claims, no increasing minimum wages...
  14. Your Boss is gorgeous. Four Mustangs, sounds like you've got some hoarding issues :) I wanna know what's under the blue car cover in the first pic!
  15. Fyi, this is the stick I used for the top portion as it best matched the stick in my brother's 69 M1 SCJ. I used the offset piece from a Hurst 3 speed shifter. Pic from my brother's car.
  16. Welcome to the forum Ron. How bout posting some pics of your 70 coupe, and tell us or at least me what part of the world y'all call home? I'm a curious lad.
  17. Since I couldn't find a stick to fit my application, I had to cut and splice a new stick to an old 2" offset base to fit in the center of the tunnel hole. Good point to remind him to put the weld below the boot top.
  18. If that video ain't enough, LA County has a new Public Defender...oops, I meant District Attorney who is lefter than left. Here is an Op Ed piece the Kern County DA wrote in the local paper. Everything she says is true. Bakersfield Californian Op Ed Piece by Kern County District Attorney, Cynthia J. Zimmer A Public Service Announcement For Kern’s Criminals: “Are you a convicted felon with a history of violent crime? A murderer? Rapist? Child Molester? Human trafficker? Armed Robber? Drunk driver who kills? Do you take pleasure in using firearms to ratchet up body counts in all types of crimes? Do you think it unfair that your history of violent crimes makes your punishment for new crimes higher? If so, I have an exciting opportunity for you. On December 7, Los Angeles County swore in its newly elected District Attorney, George Gascón. Gascón immediately pledged to make Los Angeles a sanctuary for criminals by announcing his refusal to enforce the most basic state laws designed to address serious, violent, and repeat offenders. There’s a catch though – his authority only extends to Los Angeles County. Here in Kern County, you’re stuck with me: A District Attorney that will strive to enforce laws and demand that crime victims receive justice. Criminals, you really must ask yourselves – why continue living in Kern County when you can take your criminal activity to Los Angeles, where you will be greeted with open arms? Let me share why relocation of your criminal activity is really in your best interest. First, Gascón has declared he will not allege a defendant’s prior ‘strike’ convictions in new criminal cases – ever. Ironically, on the day he swore an oath to uphold the laws of California, Gascón immediately vowed to break them. Prior strikes are legally required to be alleged by prosecutors. For you criminals, that means that the new LA DA is literally willing to break the law to ensure you don’t face the punishment you deserve! Need more? Consider this: When arrested for felonies like Domestic Violence, Elder Abuse, Child Abuse, and Rape of an Unconscious Person – the DA will actively fight in court for your immediate release back onto the street without need to post bail. Who needs a defense attorney when the DA is already on your side! Just “promise to appear” at your next court date and you walk free. Do you really think victims will testify when they know you are free to retaliate and there is little consequence for criminal behavior? Gascón has also proclaimed that he will seek the lowest punishment possible in every case and will even advocate for early release of already convicted life-inmates. Violent gang members can also sleep easier in LA, knowing that gang crimes will be ignored, as Gascón has decreed that laws targeting gang-related crime will not be enforced. At the same moment that he is releasing criminals from jail with no assurance that they appear in court, Gascón has also declared he will not seek the lawful penalties for those who reoffend while they are released pending trial. When Gascón left his DA position in San Francisco to seek control in LA, the President of the San Francisco Police Officers’ Association issued an ominous warning: “We are praying for the residents of Los Angeles hoping that George Gascón does not do to their city what he did for San Francisco during his tenure; double digit increases in crime…cars broken into by the thousands and neighborhoods ravaged by open air drug markets and crime…We are happy he will be leaving San Francisco but feel he is taking his record of failure to an even larger county where he can cause even more harm to public safety.” In Kern County, the District Attorney’s Office will continue to be an ally to victims and the community in our fight against crime. Gascón has taken the opposite approach. When confronted by the mother of a murder victim who opposed his policies, Gascón replied that she and anyone else who opposed early release of killers were “too uneducated to shut their mouths for once.” Gascón’s contempt toward victims and disregard for the law are designed to benefit criminals at every turn. I pray for victims in LA who are being abandoned by their DA and oppose nearly every policy for which Gascon stands. Criminals hoping for Gascón-style treatment in Kern County can stop holding their breath, because its not going to happen under my watch.”
  19. A very unhappy motor. Don't do it. I had a 50 oz flywheel balanced to my 28 oz flexplate that had weight added to it when my motor was balanced. Cost was only $40. So if you already have a 50 oz FW it can be balanced to your 28 oz unit.
  20. If it's 20 minutes from your house Casey, it's nowhere near Luis's house in Houston :)
  21. It's for the wife. Can't let her be faster :)
  22. Nice score Luis. I moved your thread here to the Project forum. Steve and Glen Buzik own and operate Steve's Mustang Parts in Waller. I know them personally, they are stand up people you can trust. Late model wheels will fit, as long as you run ~1" adapters to clear the upper ball joint.
  23. Wow! Outstanding work and outcome Chappy. Thanks for the update with pics.
  24. Sorry to hear about your wife Casey.
