  1. I don’t see why not. Of course air compressor air is cheaper than the cans, but it’s just compressed air.
  2. Thanks Kilgon, I figure with the high heat here lately that the brass float may have expanded. I guess I thought that the brass floats were better and more durable than the plastic ones? I guess not
  3. Hello Sarah, and welcome to the site from Michigan. Great story about your car. Hopefully you get everything all figured out and you can drive it and have some fun. There are people on here that know absolutely everything about these cars.
  4. So I have been having some problems with keeping the proper fuel level in the front bowl. I have a Quick Fuel 735 dual feed with vacuum secondaries and electric choke. Anyway, the last couple weeks I have had to adjust the flat level a couple times, after I thought I had it right. I have cleaned everything up and made sure the needle and seat was clean and moving. It was, but I did notice that the float was kinda sticking somewhat. So I removed it to check the little spring, thought maybe something was wrong with it, but it was fine. Then as I was moving the float around I thought I heard something sloshing inside of it. I have found the issue, fuel in the float. Son of a bitch! No wonder I couldn’t seem to get the level to stay the same. I couldn’t find where it was getting into it though, probably along the seam somewhere I guess. I took a plastic float from an older Holley I have and swapped it into the QF. To late to start tonight so I’ll have to wait till tomorrow morning. I’m sure it was the problem, just thought I would post about it in case it helps someone in the future.
  5. I have that same clutch fan on my 351c. It works great and I have had no problems with this set up. Just make sure to check your spacing between the fan a radiator and also make sure you have enough clearance on the engine side too. I think I added a 3/4” or maybe a 1” aluminum spacer to get the blades closer to the radiator.
  6. Try to check the float level in the carb bowls, especially the front one. You could have a bad float or just some crap in there that’s preventing a proper level.
  7. Congrats on your new ride and welcome to the site! Check out the 429 megasite for all kinds of great info about your car and how it left the factory.
  8. Hello and Welcome from Michigan. Great looking car!
  9. You can get a really nice Mach 1 for 25-30k and be able to drive it. Why spend triple that price for a B351 if you’re not concerned about a numbers matching car? You can still get a really nice car with a numbers matching driveline and not be afraid to take it out and drive the wheels off it. There were only 1800 ish b351’s built, so they are pretty rare. With the way people are driving these days, I would be afraid to drive such a rare car, but they are really cool!
  10. I think someone on here used the matte black to refinish the center gauge panel. The pics of it looked really nice. I’m sure the SEM paint would look good too as long as it isn’t gloss.

    Dream Cruise

    I agree with you mjlan, I think restrictions will be back in place by then, but who knows. I would meet up with you if you want. I usually take 59 to Pontiac, so I probably drive pretty close to where you are anyway. Plus I would like to meet up with another cool Mustang owner too! I might be able to get a couple other Mustangs to come over with me. I know johnj and manyo, both from this site would probably come too, but that would be up to you.
  12. Yes, I’m doing the same to my original wheel too. I was going to go with the Krylon satin black or the matte black Krylon. I have heard that both look great. I guess it would be up to you which one you like best.

    Dream Cruise

    Ok, so just as I expected the Dream Cruise has been “officially “ cancelled. They were dreaming for awhile that it was still going to happen. But there will be people still cruising up and down Woodward, they won’t stop that. Just no big parties and gatherings on the sides of the road.
  14. I used the wire for the throttle position solenoid.
