First off, >190 isn't a problem. Less than 190 is too cold, and can result in excessive quench in the chambers and carbon deposits. The engine is supposed to run at ~205-215F. With a proper...

My question is: Why? With some small changes, the SLA suspension design on the '65 is by far the superior system. Struts are only nice because they're cheap (production factor) and light. It's not...

The brackets themselves should be the same, iirc, but the location of the bracket is different on a disc car. I reused my OE brackets and mounted them in the disc brake location when I swapped to OE...

I'm assuming he means 3" around the coil, not a vertical 3". 3" around a coil is roughly 1/4-coil and makes much more sense.

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.

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).

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.
