I believe I have the high volume unit, but I can't remember for sure. I do have one bolt that needed to be a bit longer than what came in my ARP kit, but I believe that had more to do with my thick...

Odd that you're having repeated failures from these pumps. Was it a new pump, or a reman? The remans are A1 cardone and are pretty shoddy. Seals fail all the time, bearings fail. I hate the damn...

No, #2 is a greenish, goopy compound that doesn't harden. Comes in a small squeeze tube. It's similar to aviation sealant, but more messy.

Permatex #2 is designed to seal threads. Unlike RTV, it won't flake off into the coolant passages. Not that this is catastrophic, but I'd rather not have any RTV in my coolant if I can help it. ...

^That is a good point. Any bolt that goes into a coolant passage should get a smear of Permatex #2 (not RTV).

You're both right. At the end of the day, it depends on the ratio needed. You need to take a look at both to see what colors (and therefore teeth count) gears you currently have, then see if you...

Fel pro seems to work fine for me. I use a thin smear of black RTV around the cooling ports.

I have a ~325hp 331 that's .030" over, with about 25k mi on the build;) I also run 60/40 water/coolant, with a bottle of water wetter.

With a 1" and a 1/2" shim, iirc, the fan sits half in, half out of the shroud just like it should. I don't feel at all unsafe about the attachment; it's really not going anywhere.

*shrug* It's a concern. The noise is what gets to me, though. I like to hear the exhaust, not the cooling fan.

Yes, they will, but they wouldn't be what I'd recommend. The upholstry is different between the two years, but they're functionally the same. If you want to get something more comfortable (and with...

While fixed fans work, I much prefer clutch fans. They're much quieter most of the time, rob less power, and I think you can get a clutch and fan for ~$80.

^That fan does not flow nearly enough to replace an engine-mounted fan on these cars. I'd call the 2100CFM it advertises optimistic at best. A fan from a Mk VII or a dual-fan assembly from a Taurus...

Is there an overflow tank? If not, consider adding one.

Step one would be to pick up a clutch fan setup (both the fan and the clutch) and a radiator shroud. Clutch fans work very well, and are...

Couple questions, in order to facilitate more helpful answers:

1) What kind of fan do you have now? Is it a flex fan, or a solid fan? How many blades?

2) Do you have a fan shroud?

3) What...

Gas-A-Justs really do ride like crap. I had them on my '67 for years, and while they provided great cornering stability, ride quality was terrible. It was so bad that the rear tires would often...

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...
