  1. Awesome!! Thanks for the info, I appreciate it!!!
  2. Thanks for the replies, yes the shifter is long gone but I still have the stick. I can’t remember the guys name that used to reproduce the ‘70 stick but I spoke to him a couple weeks ago and he said he was out and didn’t foresee having anymore reproduced. I thought maybe this would be a cheap way around since I have the spare ‘72 shifters. The part where the stick goes into sure looks the same...
  3. I recently picked up a ‘70 Mach 1 and am starting to locate some missing pieces which leads me to this question. I have a couple extra Hurst 4 speed shifters out of ‘72 Mach 1’s and was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to remove the chrome stick from the ‘72 shifter and replace it with a chrome stick for a ‘70 Mach 1 which I have but needs to be rechromed. I’m trying to figure out a way to have a correct looking 4 speed shifter for my ‘70 Mach 1 since they are impossible to find. Thank you for any input!
  4. Does anyone know if there is such thing as a company that can restore plastic trim panels, I have a set of fold down seat quarter trim panels that will require a lot more than simply scrubbing and painting them, they have some scratches that will be too noticeable for me to live with, at least no speaker holes are cut in them, the panels are not chalky or brittle, just lived a rough life.....
  5. Thanks!!! I appreciate it very much, He's looking for one for me.
  6. Would anyone happen to have a spare tire mount for a fold down seat car? Previous owner removed the original one on my car.
  7. I picked up a gallon of the molasses and a heavy plastic tote, I'll attempt this concoction tomorrow. As for offending the wife, I'm kinda lucky, no wife but I have an ex wife!!! A wins a win!!! lol I'll do this at my shop (pole barn) near a window!!!
  8. Sounds easy enough, what about the rust in the threaded holes, no chance of it eating away at the threads?
  9. Ok, thanks for the info!!! I'll now be googling molasses tank treatment to see how to do that!!! lol
  10. I went and checked the size of the valve spring studs, both ends measured 7/16", or I should say both ends would not fit in the 3/8" hole on the gauge. Also I took a Ford bell housing bolt and it threaded in fine.
  11. I didn't mean to make this confusing, I have two sets, the D1AE heads and the rusty D0AE sets. I was just curious about the D1AE heads with the screw in studs. I'll check the thread size of the studs on the D1AE heads tomorrow and let you know.
  12. Pretty sure the code is 9K6 and there is no dot beside the 4
  13. I'm not going to sell them, it was one of those things that I was just wanting to know for myself if they were a little better than the average head. I got these back in 1985 with a couple 4 bolt main blocks and they've been wrapped up ever since.
  14. Thank you for your input. Not sure if I should save these and use a different set of closed chamber heads??? These are in very good shape just a little dirty. I bought them and two 4 bolt main blocks back in 1985 for a '73 Gran Torino Sport, wrapped them up in plastic and put them in a closet, completely forgot about them. If you figure anything else out about them that might prove they are Boss 351 heads, let me know. They might end up on my '72 Mach 1. Thanks
