One of the guys that used to be on here a lot ran a McLeod dual-plate clutch on his monster 351W stroker (after blowing up some smaller clutches). After talking to a couple different clutch...

Interesting. I might consider that if a small rear bar doesn't quite do the trick. I want to see how the car feels with a rear bar in place; it just seems like the ass end is a bit too squishy in...

I don't have one on mine at the moment, no. I have a 15/16" front bar, which does great at keeping the front end managed through corners without killing ride quality. I have noticed some excessive...

Nice looking car:)

One of my friends put the GW arms on his '69 Mach I. They're beefy and effective.

I'm personally looking at a set of upgraded stock-style UCA's from OpenTracker Racing, but...

I would use softer strut rod bushings, or upgrade to spherical-bearing strut rods. Overly stiff strut rod bushings can result in broken stock-style strut rods.

Good subframe connectors are...

"620" springs are often .620" diameter, not 620 lbs. Have to be careful while looking at options. I have the Grab-A-Trak .620" springs (which are roughly 480-500 lbs) and I love them. Stiff enough...

Any parts store should have that gasket. It's just a fiber gasket, nothing special. Same gasket for 302/351W.

I can't really tell from the pic if the studs are shouldered or not. I did some digging, and Tom Monroe (Rebuilding Small Block Fords) also claims that the shouldered rocker studs started mid-1968,...

Barnett, I'm fairly sure shouldered rocker studs didn't start until '68. My factory '67 heads definitely had adjustable rockers.

I thought the '65-66 heads had slotted pushrod holes, while '67+...

Never said it should be crushed. I just don't like it when people pretend they have/are something they don't/aren't. Also, there's a difference between a well done shelby or cobra clone and putting...

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

Option 1) Eliminate any smog provisions and call it a day.
