^that.

I have Edelbrock IAS shocks and I love them (much better than the Gas-A-Justs they replaced), but the custom-valved Bilsteins aren't much more and are valved specifically for our...

67mustang302, which housing are you running? The only one I've come across with a sensor fitting is the factory cast-iron piece (which looks terrible next to an aluminum intake).

I never did figure out a good solution to that problem, Gun Jam. Unlike pressure gauges, you can't just tee a fitting and make it work; the temp bulb needs to be immersed in the coolant stream. In...

I have the same heads on my 331 and I do not have the same problem, or at least I didn't the last time I yanked the intake. I can verify...

I run an OE-style 4-piston disc brake setup on my '67 without a booster and I love it. That said, pedal pressure will vary with the specific brake setup, and I can't speak directly for the Wilwood...

Pretty much, although I'd still check the seals like barnett mentioned. It's pretty easy to tell the difference when you yank the valve cover.

Seafoam does work pretty well, Barnett. It's pretty slick stuff. It's similar to Marvel Mystery Oil, in that you can put it in pretty much anything oil-based as a cleaner. Unlike some harsher (but...

I'm kinda leaning with Barnett here. Oil getting sucked down the intake would do that. It might not be noticeable as smoke, just enough to gum up on the valves. Could also be PCV. I know mine...

That's what things like seafoam and techron are supposed to do.

Personally, I'd use Seafoam. Slowly pour half of a bottle down a big vacuum line (PCV, brake booster, etc) with the engine running....

No. The axles aren't really the weak point - it's the diff that you need to upgrade, which means an 8" axle housing, with axles. Build the center section before you put it in the vehicle (or have...

Alternatively, the Ron Morris mounts are really nice :D

I wouldn't do the AOD now. It's not going to help you any with that 2.79:1 rear gear. Do the gears first (I agree with the others, 3:50-3.75 will be fine), and the AOD at the same time if you can. ...

Pinched line or a stuck caliper piston are my first thoughts. Is it just one side, or both sides on the front?

Edit: If it's both sides, 67mustang302's comment below makes perfect sense.

+1

Hard starts with varying temps and no timing pointer; timing issue is the simplest explanation (occam's razor).

What heads do you have now? If you have large chamber (post-66, I believe) heads, you're going to have to find some larger chamber aftermarket heads to keep your CR down.

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...

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.
