Ah, didn't know that. But the red stuff is significantly tackier and doesn't slough off as easily as the black.

You have a flat tappet cam, so use a liberal amount of the supplied red lube for the cam lobes and bottoms of the lifters. Black/grey moly lube is for bearings, journals, and roller cam lobes.

Assuming you have a V8 car (or at least the V8 5-lug front end), this is a very common conversion.

I have the CSRP SWAP.1 kit on my '67 and I'm very happy with it. Installation was mostly bolt-on...

Billy, I have almost your same setup on my 67 and I run 67mustang302's alignment specs (2.7* camber, -0.3* camber, ~1/8" toe-in) and I'm pretty happy with it. Corners really well and tracks very...

Yeah, you're really limited with those 65-66 models. The only cars that came with proper width 9" rears were 65-66 Mustangs with 9" rears (and possibly Falcons and Comets of the same year).

It's...

Hard to say what the advance spec should be for your particular motor unless we know more about the cam. Rough guess might be 6-8*, but it's kind of a stab in the dark. Too much and you get...

I was under the impression that the ported vacuum switch started in 1968 on CA cars, but I could be wrong.

In any case, a temperature regulated vacuum switch screws into the thermostat housing. ...

I'd recommend against wrapping ceramic coated headers. I've heard that wrapping them will ruin the coating.

You can tee from the current oil sending unit. You'd just need a switch that's...

Forgot to add: figure out something for a safety cutoff. Either pirate an inertia switch from a junkyard Ford, or use an oil pressure cutoff. Electric fuel pumps are safety hazards in accidents and...

I think you've picked the two extremes for available fuel pumps: cheap bull**** and high end overkill.

Airtex and Federal Mogul both make generic inline 12V pumps that put out 5-9psi (keep in...

To my knowledge, the only thing that's different is the little "disc brake" emblem on the factory disc brake pedal.

Plenty of us (myself included) have swapped to factory disc brakes with no...

If that's the case, stick to GT coils and 4-leaf rears, along with some good shocks all the way around. It'll ride plenty smooth and handle well enough for typical street driving. The stiffer...

"Good" is relative:) And also depends on the kind of money you want to spend.

I'm very happy with the way my '67 rides and handles. It's a little stiffer than most, due largely to 540lb coils in...

I believe you can upgrade pre-67 LCA's to the '67+ style LCA's and adjustable strut rods to allow you to set camber from the bottom, but don't expect any performance gain from it. Really, the...

210 isn't extreme. In fact, a 195F thermostat is supposed to keep the car right about that temp. That's where Ford wanted it. That said, if it's still climbing at 220, I'd call that an...

As much as it seems like a really extravagant part, I'd look at Mustang Plus's restomod 5-sp remote shifter mechanism. Before I stumbled on my close-ratio toploader, I was pretty set on a 5sp with...

Sorry, forgot to mention that. Two people definitely makes life much easier. But the clutch alignment tool usually comes with a new clutch kit.
