It really depends on the options the car came with, which is what determines the car's value, as well as your plans for the car. If it has rare options (or rare combinations of options), like the...

Barnett, that's not always true. The bushing cups on my old factory shifter were toast. The tops were mashed slightly flat, and they were mushroomed out and jammed in the shifter housing. I've...

Most cars run fine without the hot air choke. As long as your carburetor choke is adjusted properly, you should be ok.

The breather will depend on the type of attachment at the base. Some use...

Barnett, we're talking about different bushings.

The bushings that are part of the shifter rebuild kit are not at all something you can get from a hardware store. They're small cylindrical things...

Depends on how original you want it to look/function.

Option 1) Eliminate any smog provisions and call it a day.
This will probably be the least-expensive option. You'll need a new open-filament...

Ah, that would explain it. I'm an iphone guy.

That's a factory ford shifter, and it's easily rebuilt. Pick up a 4sp shifter rebuild kit from Glazier's Mustang Barn. It's essentially some...

I agree with the others: stop using the Rotella. I run Valvoline VR-1 10W-30, mostly because of the high ZDDP content. Although you don't necessarily need a high-zinc oil with your roller cam, VR-1...

Exactly. No header mfg recommends wrapping their headers, and it usually voids the warranty on a new set.

Look into ceramic coated headers. The coating does a pretty good job of retaining heat,...

While a shop could weld you up something with flanges that would go in between the shorties and the American Thunder system, it wouldn't make sense to do so, nor would I recommend it.

With everything disassembled, the dash spring will hold the pedal to the floor. That's normal.

By clutch release, do you mean the clutch fork on the bell housing? If so, it will have a bunch...

The spring under the dash is an over-center assist spring. If you run a standard long-style (3-arm) pressure plate, you need the spring. If you use a modern pressure plate with many fingers in the...

I've heard of this happening. It's not common, exactly, but it's not extremely uncommon either.

Make sure you pick up a new z-bar pivot bushing kit as well. This is often worn out, allowing a...

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. ...
