  2. The problem "Back in the day" was parts catalogs with inaccurate info. Ford's own MPC books were bad enough, the aftermarket....good luck! A lot wrong was incorrect model year ranges and parts listed for vehicles that never left the factory with them. It would be interesting if 1sostatoc can get another look at that catalog to see if it references any Ford ID numbers. Any service/over-the-counter carburetors would have a tag on it just as a production carb would. Easy for one to be considered an assembly line carburetor. I know I sold a bunch of Hollys listed for Shelbys, GT390, and 428

  3. Same as Chuck, I bought a box of the 3M black strip caulk. Works great and even looks original. Kcmash

  4. I have been looking for one of these for years but they are generally in the $600 to $800 range. I think the number one reason people think their drum brakes are no good is because they never have the shoes ground to the arch of the drum. Most have never heard of it when they jumped on the get rid of asbestos all of the parts houses got ride of them. Most took out the brake lathe also so they could sell you new rotors and drums all the time. If you do not grind them it takes a long time to wear in to fit the drum. I got the Ammco disc and drum lathe at a sale about 4 years ago for $350 has a

  5. What brand/who sells the best replacement carpet kits? I purchased one through CJ's, but the fit is lackluster and the molded parts are off enough that the carpet will not lay flat.

  6. For sure you are not "slowly but surely". I think you might set a record for a full ground up build on here. You missed your calling but you have several more in the wings to keep you busy. Great job I am sure you will inspire others to get out there and do it.

  7. Thanks for all the grave outlooks. Specially the one about the "hobbyists", when I just completed the attached. Not sure many hobbyists can do this all by themselves. Even paint. But I have owned Mach 1's before as well. Hope to do just as good a job as this on my trouble titled Mustang. I'll take the fender off and let you know what I find. Thanks,

  9. Quarters are the same 71-73 coupe, sportsroof and vert as far as shape, fitment etc if you're using a lower patch panel. The 73 would require the two slots for the urethane filler pieces to bolt in place.

  10. Finally found some time for a little update! Been busy on the house and will remain busy with it for a while, but every weekend I try to get some things done on the 71. Here a few picts of the activities... Old monkey as I am, I couldn't let these "new" Koni's shocks go. I've helped install them! Car ran at most 300 miles with them before engine broke and for more than 20 years their body rusted quietly waiting for some action on the car with the nose up and no engine. So gave them both some love and they are on my growing to be painted pile. May they'd need be changed,

  11. I use strip caulk, has worked well. The surfaces need to be clean, no dirt or dust. Chuck

  12. IF they were not balanced on a lug centric adaptor, chances are they are out of balance if they were ever balanced at all buying from CJ. You should not assume they were. Do two things, 1 inspect the lug holes for out of round ware i.e. egg shaped. If they are you'll never get them balanced properly. 2, have them rebalanced by someone who knows what he's doing with a lug centric adaptor. You CANNOT balance these wheels on a standard wheel balancer. There are of course other reasons for vibrations. Drive shaft U joints for example. I'm no mechanic, but if it were me, I'd start check

  13. +1 with what Don said. But if it were me, I would just get a hold of Don at OMS and get that section from a donor car and patch it in. It will save you a ton of fab time and will fit properly.
