  1. Rodney, I see "closed" in your ad. I take it you have located a pair.

    I did find a pair, not seen them myself yet, but I'm told they are in good shape. If you don't need them, I'll likely restore them and sell them later.

    Geoff.

     

    Thanks for looking.

    I purchased a set from Don.....

  2.  

    No idea on the 2V but my guess is it is wrong also. Here is a pic of a 72 Q code air cleaner with decal.

    Jeff is this one that you could measure for everyone?

    This is the reproduction that does not fit...if you look very closely you can see where I had to cut into three pieces to make the radius contour the same as the lid. No one will ever notice but me but seems like they could just make them right to begin with.

    By Joe you are right I see it as plain as day right after the 4V I see one of your splices. If you did not know it was spliced it would be easily overlooked.

  3. When you get this one figured out let me know I need to order one for my 72 Q vert. I need a stock air cleaner also with the chrome lid if anyone has one. My car has a ram air but will do both ram air and regular air cleaners and hoods with locks and without when I paint it.

    Is the diameter or the decal right for the 2-V air cleaner?

    Very nice yes it looks just like mine except my decal was in rough shape. But this one is nice I'll take it.....................

  5. Well, I ordered an air cleaner decal for my chrome air cleaner on my 1972 Mustang 351 C 4V the other day from vintage graphics.

     

    The size is too small for my factory large air cleaner, the radius was too tight and the width was off by about 1/4" the length was short by 1" on each end. Seems like it is for a smaller air cleaner but it was advertised for 1972 Mustang 351C 4V which is what I have.

     

    I have searched the archives and found several with the same problem but none were solved or had any conclusion.

     

    Has anyone been able to find the larger air cleaner decal for the Q code 351 C 4V ? It looks like what I ordered was D2OF-9C611-BC

     

    Someone else said Osborne sells DF0365 to fit my car but not confirmed.

     

    A little help from Don maybe or any member that has solved the same problem. :cool:

  6. (closed)I need a restorable set of factory valve covers to go on my 1972 351 Q code Mustang. I plan on restoring a set and then installing them

    later after a good cure cycle on the paint. Mine are in good shape but I would like to have a set ready to go and then change them out.

     

    Shipping quote to SW Florida 33971

     

    Thanks

  7. I am looking for a set of used 351V valve covers that I can restore to change mine out without downtime waiting for the paint to dry hahahah.

    I am in SW Florida 33971 zip code for shipping quote.

     

    My car is a Q code 1972 351C 4V

    :thankyouyellow:

    Thanks

     I may know someone with a pair, can't be sure, but will let you know next week.

     So you have a 72Q. I sold mine in 91, big mistake. It too was a 4 speed but with a 3.73. gear if I remember. Fast car. I only found out about 2 years ago, that most of the engine was a 71 Boss, but I did know squat back then. Oh well, life sucks sometimes eh!

     

    Sounds great thanks for your help and sorry about your loss.

    I just ordered a new clutch for mine I just do not understand why my clutch is worn out hahahahahaha

  8. Buy Kevin Marti's book, the Mustang and Cougar Tagbook (1965-1973) It's all in there. Jim Osborn reproduction only make a few of these because they a cannot reproduce them if they, a, don't have an original to copy and b, don't have a license from Ford.

    For my 71 4V 4 speed, K613 J, I bought the one for the 351 Boss, K625 J and took it to a local graphics shop as a sample, They reproduced the sticker for me on the correct type vinyl. Been on for 3 years now and still looks new. Alternatively, if you still have your aluminum engine tag under your coil, it too has the correct sticker code. If your car is a 72 4 speed, then it must be a Q code 351C 4V. Your plant code number will be 621. It looks like the prefix is K Non-Thermactor, non-  Claifornia. The suffix letter is a bit more difficult to figure out as these code were on a 3 year cycle. I think the it could be 'S' as 66, 69, 72 are listed as the third year. Mine is second year and is J through R. It's a bit hard to figure out I'm afraid. hope that helps.

     

    I copied and pasted your note to my Mustang folder. Good info and I thank you.

     

    You have a very nice looking engine, mine I hope will be identical.  

    Thanks

  9. Guys

    I am trying to find the right codes for my valve cover drivers side engine code decal.

    I ordered one from ebay and found out it was California emissions and air conditioned car.

     

    My car is a 1972 351C 48 states car with no AC and a 4sp tranny.

     

    I found one on fordification site for 1973 but I am sure the codes are probably different.

    Any help please................

  10. Well I installed my dual inlet hookup to the carb today and because the fittings were chromed I could not get them to seal. On a good note my car idles nicely with the new carb and intake. I have the old fuel line jury rigged with a section of rubber hose as a temp fix until I can find out what fitting is used on the fuel pump outlet. Fordification discussion on this seems to be a 1/8" NPT fitting for a 5/16" line, we will have to see...

     

    Geoff thanks for the nice pic that is about the layout I was thinking of.

  11. I will be purchasing a fuel line tomorrow to go from pump to 4150 Holley. I will be getting a 5/16 line that I can hand form.

     

    Anyone done this and remember what length and fitting size I need to purchase.

    I can take off my old line if necessary but I am sure someone knows what fitting goes into the pump, I hope....

     

    I can buy a longer length than I need because one end will hook up to the carb using rubber hose and fuel filter.

  12. Well I am not very good on the fab side of things and I was hoping someone else had had the same problems and can help a little.

     

    I installed a new Air Gap intake on my 1972 351C and bolted up the throttle cable this morning and it looks like it is 2" to long at idle and 4" too long at WOT.

    In the stock location with the stock bracket and stock cable from my old setup 4300.

     

    I looked for an adjustment but I cannot see anyway to adjust that much length out of this cable. I did a search on this site and did not find anything related to a long cable.

     

    I also have a coil mount problem in that the old coil mount location will no longer work due to the humpy large runners, it will not mount in the same location, any ideas?
