  1. Hey can I use a 4hole gasket to install my Holley 4150 on my Air Gap intake? It looks like it is not a solid base just a little short runner on the center of the intake. I do have one of the 1/8" thick 4 hole carb base gasket to help control heat, but after looking at it it may not work. What do you think?
  2. I live about 45 miles from Naples. I may try to buy the rear valance.
  3. Please let us know how much with pics when you get it done.
  4. I do not know the fitment but I have a Q code 351 4V with the factory 4sp. If it will fit how much to 33971
  5. Thanks guys for the info and yes you have given me ideas as a starting point, Thanks for that.... On a more serious note David why does your car have socks on the pedals? That made me laugh hahahahahahah.
  6. Has anyone purchased and installed a leather steering wheel wrap sew on? I have looked at a few on eBay any how do you know which one will fit? Looks like most are very wide for the modern cars.
  7. Thanks for your advise. I have a small butterfly type air impact and I will try that and see how well it works. I guess I was a nervous nelly about the bolts snapping.

  9. Hey guys I will be installing a new air gap intake in a few days and I am a little worried about broken bolts on my original intake Q code 3514V engine. The intake has never been off since new. Any tips, advise on the changeover would be great. The Airgap intake will be topped off with a 650 DP mechanical secondaries. I have watched a few YouTube videos and each one did the gasket install a little different.
  10. Thanks Chuck I just ordered a set and it looks like it will work great. I will try and post a pic of my carb from Mathis Racing.

  12. I just purchased a rebuilt Holley DP with manual secondaries and I would like to install it with an air gap dual plane intake not purchased yet. I am looking for advise to use existing throttle cable if possible on my stock 351 Q code 4 V with a 4 sp tranny. Any other tips would be great"......
  13. Do still have the air gap? Is it a dual plane for 351c 4v.
  14. I went to the swap meet at Moltrie Ga this weekend and the only 71-73 was this one.
  15. Any one going to the all Mustang show tomorrow?
  16. I am leaning toward a new purchase of a quick fuel 650 with mechnicial secondary. I am also thinking of an intake change since the carb is not a direct fit on my original intake. Has anyone used this combo on a 4v 351c with a 4speed? Any input or comments would be great. Also open to other combos that will give great low end torque.
  17. They make a material that has superior braking I think they are rated at 4.5 where the standard brake shoes are rated around 1.5 or 2. I do not remember the name of this super shoe. I heard about it on wheeler dealer they wanted to keep a clean Volvo original so they added the super brake shoes that gave them near disk brake preformance. Wish I knew more but you should be able to do a google search and come up with this super grip compound. Good Luck
  18. Nice car I feel a little jellous"........ Is it a 3 pedal car ?
  19. Has anyone set up as a Vendor at Zephyrhills Fl Swap Meet? This will be my first time an I need some insider tips about best place to set up, rules, what sells, best time to arrive, what gate to go to as a vendor. Any helpful advice would be great.
  20. Did you solve this issue? I am having the same problem, I thought it was the heat from S. Florida location.
  21. Nice car looks like mine except your roof is not as soft as mine haha. Glad you are enjoying your good looking car. Remember keep her out of the Texas sun or your red will turn to pink. Rodney from SW Florida
  22. If you old roof has a solid base and just rust pitting you can soda blast the pit areas and then treat with a paintable rust barrier. Sand heavily and use 2 part epoxy primer 2 heavy coats. Sand again and use a light coat of premium filler for finishing. Sand again and coat with epoxy primer. Prep for paint. I have used this method and it worked for me. I am sure others will also have good advise.
  23. It is the outer ridge on the top that is in the rear just above the rear glass.
