  1. There is quite a bit of discussion in the forum on this and related subjects. Here is a link to one of the articles that happens to be in the how to section of the forum. Do not hesitate to search the forum and read as many of the install discussions as possible as they all contain issues and resolutions you may encounter, have the correct trim clips handy & installed, recommendations for sealer, where & when to apply sealer, preventing/fixing leaks, etc... Good luck! :
  2. With all of the vacuum ports on the carb plugged if one smothers the carb blocking all air the engine should die. If not you have a vacuum leak somewhere, may or may not be in the carb.
  3. When did it begin running poorly? I would start with the basics, investigating the fuel supply. Is the carb receiving clean fuel? What does the filter look like? Any garbage in the fuel bowls? Are the needle and seats free moving?
  4. If they are fully functional I will take them. I will send you a PM.
  5. Newstang, I think I can help you on the decklid. Packing and shipping will not be the fun part. I will get you a few pictures if your interested.
  6. Yours are bent. Not the best example but you should be able to see the difference: https://www.google.com/search?q=1969+mustang+coupe+trunk&client=tablet-android-samsung&hl=en&prmd=sivn&sxsrf=ACYBGNRRFsjFBuJ7nzxt2T1oqdejJ-j5CQ:1577465752465&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwizrcjupdbmAhVMVs0KHS9IAGkQ_AUoAnoECA0QAg&biw=800&bih=1280&dpr=1.5#imgrc=cFRAsqY_xsdRHM
  7. Its all good. No worries!
  8. I stated exactly what I meant, crank stroke for 352, 360, 390, 410 & 428. 1970 truck 390 was part of the question. Nowhere was a 361 & 391 mentioned. Not sure what diameter your referencing Vicfreg. In the event your thinking bore then: 352 - 4.00” 360,390,410 - 4.05” 428 - 4.13”
  9. Yes. 252, 360 - 3.500” 390 - 3.780” 410,428 - 3.980”

  11. Napped these quickly while hanging my spare parts out of the way. Hope they are useful for someone.
  12. The factory speaker holes in the door are very crudely cut, think Ray Charles with tin snips. I will be out in the garage later today and will post some measurements.
  13. I do not know if the lack of diode is your issue but it certainly can cause fun on. Turn the fans off and stop them from rotating the shut the engine off. If that helps take a look at adding a diode to the current wording, assuming one does not exist today. In the end it may not be related but it is certainly something easily eliminated.: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/284090/the-concept-of-protection-diodes-across-a-fan-motor https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/electrical-problem-electric-fan-is-causing-a-slow-engine-shut-off.1073169/
  14. Do you have a wiring diagram depicting how your fans are wired? Is a diode in place to prevent reverse current when the fans are costing?
