  1. Let us know how the new knee works out. I don't think it'll be long before I need a new one, too.

  2. Thanks for the doc. It's a good read. In this case, I know I was rich. I went up significantly in jet size, and adjusting the idle mixture screws the RPM's just kept climbing all the way to 1,150. She was drinking like a fish.

  4. All 4 windows in my car are power and I've seen other Mustangs with power having the same, all 4 roll down powered. I've never seen the configuration you speak of and I've been in this hobby 39 years.

  5. I sent my brake booster to Harmon Classic Brakes in Canton, GA for rebuild. They turned it around in about 2 weeks. I'm not to the point of installing it yet, but just pulling it out of the box, it looks brand new. Just throwing that out as another option.

  6. @69 Rustang I'm not sure which hole you talk about.But the one you see here is the result of some "custom" work, ment to reroute the electrics thru fender side to have a clean engine bay. The guy who did this (and many other things on the car) for my friend, was basically a butcher with 2 left hands. Here a pict of the professional install that was done and the nicely crafted extra holes he made on the apron because of course, some wires needed to enter there as well. In the engine bay, the 2 round holes at the most right next to booster location, were "foamed" closed. Kept them closed

  8. My '73 Q code Mach has power windows and the rear ones roll down. Great to have when the weather is nice and just cruising in the car enjoying the exhaust sounds.

  9. Hello everyone,I'm still waiting for my rear axle ,so I have been working on the radiator mounts.The first set was a fail,the nose drop is too radical of a modification to use the factory mounting holes with mounts that bolt in.So I will be making mounts that weld in.Anyway I found some neat pictures of Ed Hinchcliffs car in its current state,and the blue and white Mustang is the car is how it originally looked in the late 70s,enjoy........

  10. I certainly might consider the original movie "low budget", and "dated", but compared to the Nicholas Cage version, it seems more "real", both the car and the action scenes. The original movie , I read, was actually shot out on city streets, some scenes on streets not cleared by the Police. The new version uses a custom bodied Mustang reminiscent of a Shelby GT-500 ( but not actually a really one unfortunately ), and with all those scoops and flairing, etc,, one might expect the performance and handling to be more than factory. The original movie uses a Sportsroof, not a Mach or a Boss, so we

  11. Ahhh...excellent work all around! You really need to move to a warmer climate. I hear Siberia has lots of space and land is kinda cheap there.

  12. @timachone, ahahaha, yeah probably. It's hard to get some motivation in this cold weather. The upper and lower ball joints are not working with me. The top one went loose after I've asked kindly with a respectable hammer to let go, but after that, the rod being free rotates if I try to turn the turn that i've kept on for a few threads to not damage it (it will be replaced, but old monkey me always keep the nut on flush with rod before slam to prevent balljoints to become air born :) ). It's a revetted model and the nuts on top sturn with the rivets. So now it's all about pressing while t

  13. Not much progress this weekend. I did get the hood reinstalled and lined up. Then I worked on increasing the gap on the front bumper—it is a consistent 1/8” all the way on both sides. Then I pulled one of the fenders off and started blocking it. I need to do the other fender then I can re-prime them. I did manage to access some boxes stored up high around my lift and do some digging—there were some interesting Mustang treasures up there. I wish they were easier to get to so I could properly dig and sort. In other news, my 16 year old son earned his Brown-Black belt. He really had t

  14. Sounds like cam lobe failure that took the lifters with it.

  15. Be careful with cam selection. If the lift is sufficiently high and you do not change valve springs, you can get spring coil bind and have lots of bent pushrods...an no oil pressure...don’t ask how I figured that out, but I was only 19 at the time. I have to wonder why you have a bent pushrod now?

  16. Finished the prep and repairs on the rear body and epoxy primered it today. Had to make a patch for the big rust spot—I really like working on California metal.

  18. Can't say much bad but there are differences. 1971 you had to pay more for the deluxe interior was not standard. 351 way more desirable than 302. 6,121 of all models and engines made in 1971. Of course the Q, R, J and C codes are pretty rare. It is sort of odd that the H code with 3 speed only had 85 built. All 71-73 verts have power top and glass rear window. You had black or white top only. The front seats are different for 71 and also the rear seat belts and side panels are different. PW for 71 72 are the same. 1972, This year you get the deluxe interior at no added cost. If you g

  19. The way things are going with restrictions, you'll have lots of time to work on projects. To replace my 73 vert, decided to go a bit more modern. For some reason, I keep finding blue exterior colors to my liking. Not much needed to do with this one except enjoy the drive.
