  1. I think it stops where it is if stopped on the way up. And goes to park if stopped on the way down.
  2. 351W RPM top end kit, Air-Gap, running a flat base and a 2" K/N filter. Also TCP engine mounts.
  3. Bingo! I do have a fairly complete history of the car, as I came in contact with a PO and got a lot of info. There are a few holes, but the car had an interesting life, like most of these cars had. They was meant to be driven, and they were driven!
  4. I know the car had an accident crashing in a highway off-ramp divider in the early '90s, so who knows. But it doesn't look like it had a hard life. The car is mint underneath. The cracks was in the sheet metal, not the actual shock mounts. I think this is just the softness of the SportsRoof chassis. The air shock theory is interesting to me. These cracks were in the car when I got it (2004), and they looked like scissor cuts more than anything. Looked to me like something that has been made over time. I think a sudden impact would have left a more drastic clues, or at least other damages to the area around it. In this picture, I had scraped the under coating, and pressure washed it. It was clean as can be. Can even see the assembly line dolly mounting marks at the rear. I added the subframe connectors in 2005, so the cracks was there before I did that.
  5. The Map light / glove box light and the clock has it's own wire harness. All you need to do is power that harness and connect the glove box door switch. It then all should function as stock. The Map light will light when the glove box door is opened.
  6. It's a color called Rojo Delhi Effect. It is from SEAT, a spanish car manufacturer in the Volkswagen Group.
  7. The hooks are fastened on the embossment at front. There are also rear coat hangers just behind the shoulder belt bolt. Click on the picture to get fullsize.
  8. Did you forget you are running an NASCAR engine ?? Anyway, it looks like a nice build. Looking forward to follow it!
  9. I installed a T-56 Magnum in my Mustang. Also an 351W/FMX car. The Magnum is a bit bigger than the TKO 600, so I had to do some cutting, perhaps you need to also, since the TKOs are pretty boxy. http://1969stang.com/forum/index.php?/topic/48318-crashed-my-fastback-the-rebuild-thread/page/14/&tab=comments#comment-184062 Also, David Freiburger (HOT ROD) instralled a TKO 600 in thier '69 "Discustang", so that should be coming up on either Roadkill or Roadkill Garage shows on Motortrend.com. Could perhaps be a few tips to get there.
  10. I was running 245/45-17. I've sold those wheels, and haven't bought new ones yet. There should be room for 315s at the rear with the correct backspacing.
  11. 102?!? D-D-D-Damn! Yeah, he still has it - It's a Plymouth Barracuda. Last month or so we have been installing a Edelbrock Pro-Flo4 EFI system on it, along with new long tube headers, Magnaflow Exhaust, new fuel tank and fuel lines. Big-ass job!
  12. This one should work with your setup. https://www.summitracing.com/int/parts/aed-6701bk/overview/make/ford
  13. Hi, are you looking for originality or is it not so important? Also - perhaps 351C guys can chime in on this - 351 Clevelands doesn't work very well with Edelbrock/Carter type carburetors. You should run a Holley 750HP.
  14. NPD has 2 concours bolt kits for 1969. https://www.npdlink.com/product/mounting-kit-radiator-concours-saddle-brackets-to-radiator/106112/202824?year=1969 https://www.npdlink.com/product/mounting-kit-radiator-concours-8/106111/202824?year=1969
  15. BigDuke6; I have a 351W with the Edelbrock RPM package (same 60259 heads), 10.8 comp and a Crane HI-6 igintion system. I remember going to a colder plug, I think it was from NGK FR5 to a NGK BKR6E. I have them gapped at 0.050" or 1.3 mm. I remember that helped the engine alot. I run 98 RON gasoline (Shell V-Power) that is perhaps the same you get in Germany, or do you use 100 RON ?
  16. Good work so far! Nice to see another european on the board.
  17. If originality isn't important, have a look at the KRC PS pumps. They have both cast iron and aluminum pumps, so the price range is pretty broad. The cool thin about them is that the flow valve are changeable for flow tuning.
  18. I've always used NGK plugs and Crane/FAST FireWire. They have a super low 25 ohms resistance. After I found the spark plug that works for me I forgot everything I knew about spark heat ranges. But other than the white tip, that plug looks nice.
  19. Nice work, but what application are they intended for? I have a Moroso Road Race pan. I had to modify it to keep oil flowing over and out of the trap-door diamond at hard breaking. I discovered this was a problem at a road course. Original. Modified. Dimples are for the oil pump bolts.
