  1. Yeah, it's the Chevy 350 that need reduced base circle cams (on strokers I think), because they have no room inside the block.
  2. I see Marcus Anghel has the fender pieces NOS. http://anghelrestorations.com/parts.html He would also be the guy to talk to about how to restore the items you do have, and any questions about the two types you have observed. You could also find good info over at concoursemustang.com.
  3. Welcome to the forum! Is there some kind of special equipment on the car since it got 2 vacuum canisters?
  4. I've had Percy Seal-4-Good gasket for years. Reuasable, had them on and off a couple of times. The're multilayer aluminum. I think they are now Taylor Cable brand. It carries the same part number, and looks the same as Percy. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/php-66014 I linked the Windsor gasket. Is that a Cleveland gasket you got there? As for torque, usualy you can only work with wrenches, so I go as much as I can without slipping with that 3/8s wrench. Then retorque after a day, and again the next day after that. I've always used ARP bolts.
  5. They are fill panels for Fastbacks without fold-down rear seat.
  6. This is my car mounted on 315/30/19s. Borrowed wheels, so I don't remember the BS or width on the rims. No tubs, original, but modified wheel houses. The car is not on the ground here, but there was a wee bit clearence. When the car sat on the ground, the wheel moved outward, and the clearing was incresed. Rolled freely. The modifications done to the wheelhouse is a wedge laid into the front of the wheel house. They are very narrow in the front, but are plenty big enough otherwise. The best thing about this mod is that it does not move the brackets for the rear fold down seat or interior panels. The rear seat mount is welded because my car had them offset to one side. No gap between the panel and seat on one side, and 1/2" gap on the other. You can se the top slide lock has not been touched. Edit: Rear seatbelt anchor is still in place between the wheelhouse and frame rail. Will have to go if you tub it all the way. Panel mount is untouched. This picture shows how narrow the front of the wheel house is. There is plent of space towards the frame rail.
  7. 1. Yeah, it's legit. 2. Thanks to the Gulf stream for keeping Norway habitable.
  8. Thanks. I shot the picture on 06.27.2020. As you can see by the snow on the inside of the corner, the track is true to it's name. It's called the Arctic Circle Raceway, ACR for short. The track is located 19 miles south of the Arctic Circle. I live some 71 miles south of the Raceway. There was a lot of snow this winter, and the racetrack is situated over an old quarry up in the hills. I don't remember the elevation right now. At my brother's flickr account you can see all the pictures I took that day. https://www.flickr.com/photos/joakimvike/ The northernmost corner is also the highest corner on the track. It's called the North Pole. Pictured here. In the bottom of that corner, a little left of the half-nude man (LOL) is the place where I had my crash with my Mustang.
  9. I got my Hydroboost at Hydratech. BEST customer service I have ever met! Period! I did have the PS pump and tank beforehand, so I just got a -6 AN weld-ing bung for the tank. Get the biggest bore MC you can find. 1.25" bore is what I run.
  10. I'm making progress on the Mustang again. Probably gonna make a post on my buildthread again soon. My brother's 'cuda is doing great. Got some track time a month ago, first time with the Tremec T-56 and the Edelbrock Pro-Flo EFI, so that was fun. The car worked great all day, but had powerloss at the top end. So we're chasing that one. Think the fuel pump just ran out of juice (electrical that is), so we're trying another relay with much heavier gauge wires.
  11. Jerry, the tandem is just an inline dual resorvair MC, and uses an proportion valve instead of a bias bar to balance out the rear brakes (so that you don't get overamplification). I do not think the tandem MC provides more force output over the dual MC. I would either go for a manual setup or a Hydraboost setup, but you'll need a new MC either way. A small bore MC for manual brakes, and a the biggest bore MC you can find for a Hydraboost. I've ran Hydraboost, and it's great, but it adds a lot of stuff to the engine bay in form of hydraulic lines, and preferebly a cooler.
  12. I had a Griffin before my crash. It was an "Direct-fit", not the Exact-fit, so I had to dent the underside of the hood to clear the cap. I had dual slim spal fans. It cooled great, but for my rebuild I wanted a OEM appearance and a perfect fit, so I went with DeWitts with dual spal fans in a shroud. Have not run the car with that setup yet. Only thing you need to go to the 24" radiator is removing the drivers side block off plate, and adding the bolt in lower radiator cradles. And new hoses of course.
  13. I think the problem is the radiator. I did some research on popular Mustang radiators. While it is easy to think that a 3-row should be sufficient, it may not be the case. The tube size is the important factor in a radiator. The larger the tube, the more contact surface it has th the cooling fins. Popular Mustang radiators has the following tube sizes: Griffin Thermal Products p/n 7-70164 has 1.25" tube size (2-row) Total tube surface diameter = 2.5" Be Cool p/n 62187 has 1" tube size (2-row) Total tube surface diameter = 2" DeWitts Radiator p/n 32-1238007M has 1" tube size (2-row) Total tube surface diameter = 2" Champion Radiators p/n CC338 has 0.63" tube size (3-row) Total tube surface diameter = 1.89" Scott Drake p/n 338-3HF has 0.5" tube size (3-row) Total tube surface diameter = 1.5" So, as the chart shows, a 3-row radiator does not have more cooling surface than a 2-row. It has less. A shroud will help, and powerful fans too, but in slow traffic you get problems with charging with the fans going full bore all the time.
  14. Got this one aso. Click on it for high-res.
