I put a 66 cluster in my 65.

In order to keep it easy, I replaced the under-dash harness with a 66 as well. Then everything plugged right in. My wires were crispy anyway, so that wasn't a hard decision for me. I have since put...

RE: T5 and no power steering : the real deal!

I am pleased with the way my car drives with one exception... It is a manual steering car, and although they're all new components, most of the driving I do is around town, where very slow turning...

Bringing back memories seeing all those parts spread out!

I've never really understood the romance that surrounds restoring a car originally. If you've seen one perfect "off the line" restoration, you never need to see another one. Yawn. With every...

Do you think this is misguided???

My father in law, who is a long time classicmustang owner and typically a vintage puritan, has his 65 fastback stripped to the tub for a long overdue total restoration. He's primarily a do it...

RE: Made in China- is it worth it?

What's really sad is that by handing them our business, we have helped the Chinese get so good at their manufacturing that not only do they produce the crap pieces, but if you need something built...

RE: carbon buildup and cleaning

I could not believe my eyes the first time I saw this, but I've since seen it work very effectively multiple times without adverse effects. An old timer showed me this. Crank up the engine and let it...

RE: rear disks

One cheap way to go, if you have a little ability to fabricate, is to take the rear end setup off of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, (97)and strap it to your 8 inch. I did this. I had to redrill the dust...

How do strokers differ from non-strokers in terms of feel?

I've been curious for a while now. How do they feel? Great low end, or better high end or both? Sacrifices? What do you lose when you stroke a motor? Start OK? Idle just fine? Do they require cams...

Let's not name names here, but at least one opinion in this conversation MUST BE ONE OF THE DUDES WHO PROMPTED MY ORIGINAL QUESTION. He routinely goes 60-70... OK, there's no traffic so he feels...

RE: Fastlane protocall: I have opinions, but I want yours.

RE: I'm starting to hate my pertronix....

Ignorance is bliss. I should never have chimed in, and I apologise. I use a blaster II coil, and reading back through the posts, there was only one hint that a flamethrower was also a Petronix...

RE: got my engine today!

I thought I recognized those heads, and then I saw Roush stamped into them. We used those and love them. I made the mistake of using 1.7 rockers and we had to slot the push-rod channels because they...

RE: I'm starting to hate my pertronix....

You have trashed a product that wasn't even responsible for your problem. It's a good product. Mine is still running 4+ yrs later. With a post titled as this one is, I would expect some folks should...

RE: New Motor Mounts = HUGE vibration!! :( REVISED

The nose of the differential and the tail shaft of the transmission must be parallel for a pair of U-joints to work correctly. This took me a while to get my head around. I thought a U-joint was for...

RE: Do You Have Any History On Your Mustang?

Its origins are likely lost forever, but in about 1980, my 65 convertible was acquired by two fellows who owned an auto parts store south of Kansas City, MO. They intended to restore it as the...

RE: So my new tires are rubbing already

The difference between a 215 and a 235? Dude, you cut a tire enough that you had to replace it. That's not OK! You didn't expect it then, and you won't expect it the next time it happens. Except the...

Ya, but when people approach you what do they ask?

No one has ever come up to me and asked, "Is that a new car made to look like an old Mustang?" I get, "Is that a 64 or a 65". Or once in a while I get, "Is that a 67?" How do I respond? "It's a 65."...
