  1. Between all the "nipple and pumping deeper and harder references" I thought you were talking about something else. Too funny! The accelerator instead of the brake pedal was also funny. Translations often result in humorous outcomes. Well done Fabrice. Chuck

  4. The circuit breaker attaches to the starter solenoid. The wire runs along the passenger side tower brace, the firewall to a hole in the firewall on the outside of the brake master cylinder. That is what the panel grommet fits in. The yellow 3 socket connector is the accessory power for the power top.

This will be super nice for transporting and storing the inflator and all the small parts that it comes with!! It also adds even more value to the raffle so hurry and get your tickets before time runs out!!

  6. FullSizeRender.mov Careful CAD work has ensured it will clear the driveway. I’m hoping to make some more versions after Father’s Day. Wheels are Method 308’s. They are not offered in the correct bolt pattern… IMG_0493.MOV

  8. Just a couple of thoughts... I think replacing the lower valance and bolting it to the bottom of the fender would look good. Maybe skinny up the sides in front of the tire. Free advice... EXACTLY what it's worth! LOL What wheels are those?

  10. Ok I may have been mistaken about the bad gas. I think I had run my fuel line too close to the front of the block. I moved it some, but still had some more vapor lock issues. I have now added a 1/2 phenolic spacer and that raised the fuel line and wow! My engine really likes that after I re-tuned it. I didn’t really hammer it too much, but it is even more responsive than it was. Anyway I’m pretty sure that the fuel percolating is done.

  12. Mine had a similar rattle to what you describe. Turned out to be the battery tray come a bit loose and made noise every time the passenger side of the car went over a bump. I tried several time to get the car up in the air and jiggle things to track down what was making the noise. I sat in the car and had a buddy rattle everything he could get his hands on - inner fenders, hood, fenders, splash shields, wheel, grille, emergency brake cable - to see if any of them made that sound. He made a lot of sounds but none of them were the right one. I considered mounting a goPro under the car and recording while I went over bumps. And after that, I was going to start taking off the hood and fenders and any other part of the car I could, piece by piece until the noise went away. Another thing you can do is roll your windows down and try to find a place close to a wall to drive so the sound will bounce back at you. This is helpful in determining which side of the car its coming from, and if its front or rear. If you have a buddy and a rough parking lot, have them stick their head out the window or pop the trunk and have them ride in the trunk and listen out over the edge of the car and see which side it making the noise. It just turned out that I was replacing the radiator support and while I was tearing the front of the car apart, I put my hand on the battery and rocked it back and forth and found my culprit.

  13. I casually track prices. I do think they are trending a bit higher, perhaps 10-15 % over the last 3 years. I don't think it has anything to do with regular used car prices. As for most people pretending to want to sell a collectable car on FB, THEY ARE OUT OF THIER MINDS on pricing. Kevco(sp) or Mike from Motor City Mustang would probably have more insight concerning rising value. Chuck

  14. true story, not a week old. If you're having a leaking rear end and problems with brakes to solve, at some point you need to bleed the brakes system again (just celebrated the 5th time in a month last weekend) I usually ask my wife to pump the pedal while I go thru the 4 nippels while keeping an eye on the level after each one. Last weekend, it was pumping time again. So while me laying under the car, she was behind the steering wheel talking with our neighbour's wife thru the open window.... me: Pump please...[ noises of pumping ] a few secs pass... me: Dang it, I must have a leak somewhere or mc is dead, nothing comes out me: Pump faster, deeper please [ faster pumping noise ] me: You can stop no change, no fluid coming out thru the connected hose. Stood up and went at the mc check the level. me: I don't understand what's going on, nothing happen, level is unchanged.. what on earth is going on?! neighbour's wife: I see this thing moving back and forth when she pumps, pointing at the accelerator linkage...

  15. So an update, full set of hard lines are here, will start replacing those. Also got new wheels and tires from Tire rack and they mounted the fat tires on skinny rims and skinny tires on fat rims, so the set when to Discount Tires for a redo on Tire Racks dime. all 4 corners of brakes are done, so I need to clear out old fluid and hook up hard lines and replace shocks and I should be able to get the car down off the jack stands.

  18. This is a true one happened to me. When I took my job at Spartanburg Steel Products, Inc. they had included a months free stay in motel in Spartanburg. So I did it. Would come in each afternoon and it being warm weather they had a happy hour outside. I had made friends with a guy doing business in the area and we had drinks each afternoon. Se we are sitting outside and this huge tour bus pulls up with U.S Calendar Girls down the side and like a flag waving. The door opens and all these gorgeous scantly clad gals get off. Tank tops, no bra, Daisy Dukes, wow wow. They come over to the bar and order drinks and tell us that they are a traveling strip show doing a show at a local pool and dance hall. They get their drinks and head inside to check in their rooms. Well happy hour is over so me and my friend go inside to the bar. A guy comes in and sits down and he is from Sweden I think he was, there for some BMW stuff. Here come the gals back down with really hot outfits on now barely clad. The leader of the group comes over and sits in my lap and asks me, "You want to ride with us on the bus to the show". I told her no that I would get in trouble for sure. They go get on the bus and the foreign guy says who was that? We tell him they are strippers. He gets all excited when we tell him they take ALL their clothes off. He begs us to take him to the show and he will pay our way. So we finish our drinks and go like 1/2 mile to the place. I get $5.00 out and put in my pocket. As soon as we come in the door the leader of the group comes bouncing over, no top, and G string on, and gives me a hug and thanks us for coming. I whisper in her ear that the guy is from Sweden to show him how it is done in the U.S.A.. I put the $5.00 in her G string. She gets the guy by the arm leads him out on the dance floor. Gets a chair and sits him down. Of course there is music playing and she gives him a lap dance and then stands up and bends over and pulls her G string off. She steps off a distance from him then starts doing back flips and ends up with her crotch right in his face in a hand stand. We all laughed until we cried and the Swedish guy could not quit smiling. Then the movie Dumb and Dumber comes out and they turn down a ride on tour bus with a load of strippers. I do not know who told them about my experience but they copied it, lol. Wish I could go back and say yes.

  19. We found mom a car yesterday. Its not a mach 1, or even a ford. She ended up going with the chevelle. The car she got to replace her mach 1 back in the 80s.

  20. On my 1970 Mach 1 351 Cleveland project, I went with Vintage Air, they have a control conversion kit that uses a slider that hook ups to their ECU that you then calibrate by sliding the control levers. Also, they make a York mounting bracket to Sanden compressor adapter. I bet you can use it with any Sanden conversion kit. I then made a top bracket to bolt the tensioner bracket and the P/S cooler to the top of the Sanden compressor. Looks similar to the stock setup. I also installed an aftermarket steering box with a GM style Saginaw P/S pump. mine is from CPP but it is very similar to a Borgeson conversion kit. No one makes a moutning bracket for a Cleveland with A/C and either a CPP or Borgeson P/S kit. So again I had to coble something together. I spent a lot of time lining up the stock crank, water pump pulleys with the Sanden and Saginaw pulleys. If anybody is interested in trying it, I'll be happy to share the details.... ork mounting bracket to Sanden compressor adapter. You can buy it on Summit Racing. I believe this is a 351W P/S steering bracket Made the top bracket to be adjustable forward and back. An aftermarket Saginaw bracket. I used two of them on the front and back of the pump Made my own spacers. Putting all together...

  22. I know this is kind of dumb but I went through hell, 3 clock makers, reading rocketmans website info, exhaustive web searches, and hours of painting and polishing plastics and faces just to keep the original clock. Not because its going to be a concourse showcar or anything but for one simple memory. When you're sitting at a stoplight, and the engine is purring just enough to hear, that's when you hear the tick of the clock, the movement, the moment before you can if you wish, light it up like a friggin roman candle and scream off the line. Theres something about that little tick in that few seconds that's just special, and truly only in a muscle car.
