  1. I have my motor and C6 out and the current transmission cooling lines are a mess, they are smushed, twisted, and have sections that were replaced with rubber hose.. I want to make them better, am looking at "Classic Tube" replacement lines. Anyone have any experience with them? as the car is a 73 coupe, and the C6 and 429 are from a 70 Torino I'm having issues there as well. The lines they have for a 1973 mustang, C6 look correct when compared to my current mess. Classic tubes does not have images up but CJ Pony Parts does, any experience with them? Summit also has them, https://www.summitracing.com/parts/cst-mut1011-oe Non of the suppliers listed in the classifieds show them.
  2. I'm trying to clean my engine compartment up some when I get this motor checked out back together and back in the car can I just plug the heater core Outlet on the pump and the heater core return on the intake manifold on my 429 or do I have to put a short Loop connecting the two of them so water still flows through there? I attached an image of the two holes. The more stuff I pull off this 429 the bigger it looks. The car is a garage princess I really do not need a heater core in it the one that's in the car now popped and I've already changed it twice I've had the car since 1985 so I'd rather just not have that heater core functioning and not have all the lines. Thank you for your assistance
  3. Now that's alot of good info, thank you very much. Transmissions are Greek to me, it does have a slightly deeper pan with a plug already. I would not mind driving a ways to deliver and pick this one up if anybody knows of a really good place within 100 miles of Bryson City NC.
  4. I was quoted $900 by a shop with excellent recommendations. Including new torque converter and built to handle the car and driving style. I will be pulling the c6 and motor at home and taking them the tranny. Not leaving my car there.
  5. My 73 Coupe has a 429 and C6 transmission out of a 1970 Torino in it, has not been out of the car since 1987 has work really well untill the last couple of years now it's not downshifting on its own, I have to do it manually and when the transmission gets hot say I've been running a curvy Road hard I start to get a shutter like something slipping inside the transmission, going to have it rebuilt, found a local guy here in Franklin North Carolina that's highly recommended. What should I request or look out for it's got pretty good horsepower and torque pushing it. A friend of my dads rebuilt it in 87, and all I remember is that he said he built it stout. He sure did as I ran it hard for years.
  6. Thanks, My door panels are original and in excellent condition and I didn't want to cut them up, and I didn't want to put non Factory kick panels in, so it seemed like the only way to have room to put speakers in.
  7. Front speakers, had to cut the baffle off to get air flow in front of the magnet. At least that's my guess, I tried them without the baffles and with the baffles modified to this point and this point sounded the best.
  8. Also used boom mat baffles on the front speakers but also had to vent the bavk of them to get good sound. And this is the amp I used Kenwood KAC-M1824BT Bluetooth 400 Watt Waterproof Marine Stereo Speakers had already been mounted back here when I got the car back in 85, I cleaned it up alot though, looks much better now.
  9. I already had a custom Autosound radio in my 73 it looks good but sounded like crap, even with pretty good speakers so I got to researching, Broke down and bought the Kenwood Bluetooth receiver amplifier with a wired remote. Amplifier is mounted in the trunk wired remote runs under the carpet under my console and I mounted the remote control in the ashtray holder. Installed a couple of small but good 4in Morel speakers under the front dash, had to custom make some brackets and they turned out really well, had to trim the speaker cover of the passenger side one but the speaker is not modified. already had a nice pair of 6x9 Pioneers in the back they sound 100% better with amp pushing them overall sounds really good compared to what I had. I can also still use the custom Autosound radio through the amp I hooked it up to it and then even if the amp goes out I left the front in dash speaker hooked just to the radio I can play it even if the amp dies. Used boom mat foam speaker baffles on the rear speakers but had to put large holes in the bottom of them to get the sound right. Installed the baffles between the metal of the car and the particleboard rear shelf, put a thin layer of closed cell foam all aound them to even things out and cut noise from the trunk.

  10. And I stocked up on Knob Creek last week
  11. I've had my Mustang since 1985, back then we would start in Almond North Carolina run 28 to Fontana Dam, 129 all the way to Chilhowee, when you came out of the curvey part of 129 and hit the straightaways at Chilhowee that 429 would moan.
  12. Looks nice, bet it looks great on t he road
  13. we were pulling some G's in the bottom 2 images
  14. Setting here at home, working from home, county line closed,, thinking of better times, My son and I ran 129 last summer
  15. Yep there are very few people I would loan my truck to, even fewer with the mustang, perhaps 2. and man your mustang looks to the exact same color as mine
  16. I believe those are called fender and hood extensions, in post #15 of this thread Fabrice talks about options with them.
  17. Great Information! This is doable for me, This summer when I have the time off from work will be the time, and I think I will start looking for parts!
  18. Thanks for the info, I feel the same about the bumper,,, I bought my 73 back in 85 thinking it wold be a simple swap to a chrome bumper like the 72,, found out I was wrong later on,,
