  1. Hey I am a proud til I die user of FF2 yes Ver 2.0 with all CSS and scripts disabled. I have internet access of 2 kbps and all unnecessary code is painful to wait for only to have the page time out. I love the old days of HTML and nothing else, no 1gb banner gifs or multiple menu listing of 1mb ten times on the same page. I am old (hence the passion od 71-73 cars) and I find the whole internet thing was about sharing info but now it is only a giant revenue generating ads index controlled by google !. I used to host and build sites but almost ever client wanted to be number 1 in a search engi
  2. well the 2 73s are for sale separate from the other stuff, obviously local sales are practical. http://mech.5963394.com/73mach.htm

  4. There is nothing wrong with 4300s and 4300D. I run a pair of 4300s on a 351C tunnel ram and the "D" on my other 351C Pulls to 6,500 no problem
  5. WHOA! How many of us complain about buying a car that has a butchered wiring harness? NEVER CUT FACTORY WIRES! the last .PDF is to install an aftermarket "STYLE" 3 wire tach. the FORD 2 wire tach is best left in place and use the MSD tach adapter as stated. Every time a wire is cut many little electron will never find their way home. ( and mystery gremlins start haunting your ride) MSD 6 AND 6AL are easy to wire and can be dropped in stand alone just requiring a a few connections without cutting wires. Always when you can find an appropriate extra mating connector and butcher tha
  6. Just a note...... I have been rebuilding Ford manual trans Toploader and T5s (and also muncie and T10s) and the recent surge in china junk has made its way into the kits being sold. Some not all kits are sold like any other business, for profit not customer satisfaction. I threw a rant on another forum after installing a kit (picking the better used factory parts over some of the new cheap crap) Look at the kits, ask where the parts are made, (even though liars will say USA). Like I say "Ford spent millions on research, I doubt a 3rd world engineer can make stuff better" A can of spray
  7. If you like those sport covers you should see them chrome ! I used polystripper and removed the paint they are completely chrome center piece. and I have the original set 14" and a a pair of Boss 15"
  8. Me 2, I have 5 D2OA chrome magnums with my 72 Gran Torino Sport.
  9. The most important thing reuse the factory fasteners if the are the proper length.(clean, polish and clearcoat or alum paint.) IF you insist on "shiny" bolts make sure they are like factory quality, Grade 8. Trans-dapt, Mr Gasket and others sell chrome or zinc plated junk, they do not take the recommended torque ratings. I am not familiar with the choke heater tube mount for that intake but if a block off plate is supplied check for proper fastener length where the threads may bottom before actual clamping is reached. I have always used the factory metal gasket with "ultra-grey" loc
  10. All the cars need something to be on the road, one the resto completed, another an engine swap and others more intense work. All to be completed with the massive pile of parts. I have had people want just one car but also wanted to rob parts from another (the 4 speed from this car to put in that one) then both cars are bastardised and no one wants the one missing the 4 speed (just an example) I had someone wanting the NOS full factory 1/4s off 3F02 then what is the car worth without 1/4s? I understand your view and if they were complete perfect cars I could sell them individual
  11. I understand the displeasure of having a "member" pop in and peddle parts. I have been a member on Torinocobra ( the cars that were on the road at the time) along with contributions to Boss302 reg and others. It is not that I only wanted to use this forum to sell my stuff but because I would rather have someone that enjoys these cars experience the pleasure I had when I was able, back in the day (street racing, out running the pesky "ticket man" etc.) If i listed on C/L (which no one uses in Canada vs the Ebay POS that passes for classifieds) some chev flipper would........ well.
  12. This is a mess.... for local guys only. I am placing the ad in this section because this will be a package deal. Everything Ford Parts & cars as one package. up to 11 vehicles 5 72-73s Gran Torino Sports and 2 D3ZZ sportsroof projects (460/C6/2.73 & 302/4 speed/3?50 "N" 9" + Full factory 1/4s attached with screws) + other misc drivetrain cars. 2,000 sq ft parts. 25+ v8s (12 351C), 30+ manual trans(toploader/T10/T5) 50+ 9" (& 5 8")etc. I tried this sale before and too many window shoppers. It will be a test of patience to view everything and I can't imagin
