  1. Mike65's 69 Coupe build

    Today was another beautiful day so I started working on the Lokar parking brake cables to hook up the center mount parking brake.
  2. Headers for my 5.0 build.

    MN69Grande, after doing some research/searching I found a guy who sells on E Bay custom made 2.5" H pipes, & 2.5" mid pipes to mate up to the Hedman 88408 headers that would fit my 5.0, & Jegs sells 2.5" tail pipes made by Flowmaster. https://www.ebay.com/itm/361897019015 https://www.ebay.com/itm/361587030669 https://www.jegs.com/i/Flowmaster/389/15807/10002/-1

    Would going to 2 1/2" exhaust system be good for my 5.0 instead of the 2 1/4"? Vic, what diameter exhaust are you running on the 68 & on the 70?.
  4. Mike65's 69 Coupe build

    Today was beautiful weather (70°) so I rolled the Mustang out of the garage & finished running the rear brake lines on the rear differential to the rear wheel cylinders.

  6. I have the 5.0 that is going into my 69 Coupe at a local engine builder & he is rebuilding the short block & then is going to install my M-6049-X302B cyl heads & M-6250-B303 cam & Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. The car has a world class T-5 & 3.50 rear gears w/trac loc, & will be used as a weekend cruiser. I am now starting to give some thought as to which headers I want to use. I am thinking about going with either the JBA 1650SJT, or the Hedman 88408. I am trying to make this as easy as possible for me to do in my driveway since I can get a "H" pipe for the JBA's & the Hedman's & the get the stock 2 1/4" intermediate & tail pipes & glass packs to complete the exhaust. Is there a better header for my set up that will not break the bank. Ideas, suggestions?.
  7. Winter Needs to be done already

    We had 80° & sunny here at the the Jersey shore yesterday & today it is 41° overcast & raining. Still better then snow.

    Hi Vic, The engine is still at the shop, I am planning on calling him on Monday after work.
  9. Wife got a new toy

    Congrats, nice ride.
  10. Body tag question

    My 69 Coupe is a 11/68 Metuchen built car & has the buck tag as the above pic.
  11. Sound System Help...

    danno did the MP3 conversion on a AM/FM radio I have in my Coupe & ran the connector for the MP3 player through a small hole I drilled in the back of the glove box liner, this way I can plug in the MP3 player & leave it in the glove box.

  13. Steering box questions

    Sam, if you need the steering box rebuilt contact Chockostang he rebuilt the one in my 69 Coupe. http://www.chockostangclassicmustang.com/
  14. Steering box questions

    Sam, If you have to remove the steering column it is fairly easy & it may make getting the rag joint out easier. I would sooner pull the steering column instead of the steering box. The last storm we only got rain where northern NJ got snow. Clinton (western NJ is very pretty) Sometimes I am a little iffy on something to do on the car & I used to be a mechanic, but like you said it is probably old age, I know the feeling.
  15. Happy Easter.

    Happy Easter to everyone here.
