  1. All the tips here are good ones.. I did glass work for years.. so I'll add one more.. Below is the homemade tool many of us use to cut out glass parts and be able to save them. Just a piece of 1/2" conduit cut down to a couple feet long. Then a loose utility knife blade fitted to the flattened end. That flat profile let's you cut from the inside without damaging any trim. .. the long handle gives good leverage and a good purchase on the tool. Using soapy water in a spray bottle to live the sealant and keep the butyl from sticking together. The plus is you can push out and cut the
  2. That's a really nice system.. wouldn't mind putting one in my sportsroof...
  3. That's great! Very happy that my system.. old and ugly as it is.. is unmolested and complete!
  4. Thanks.. I am concerned about keeping my car original.. the conversion to R134a is tempting though.
  5. So when restoring my Grande.. as far as the A/C system is concerned...I want to use as much as possible of the original parts that came on the car.. I know there are replacement parts for everything but I don't want like kind..I really want to have my parts refurbished..restored.. Has anyone been down this path.. what am I looking at?...
  6. So after reading all the posts on this thread... am I to assume the seller here is just using the "Cobra Jet" term to make the car out to be something it's not?? http://vi.raptor.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemDescV4&item=192310867945&category=6236&pm=1&ds=0&t=1509438252000&ver=0&cspheader=1
  7. I posted this one in the Grande section a while ago... https://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-1-of-1-429-cobrajet-with-ram-air
  8. Thanks for the responses guys! I wanted to use the air tires on the engine stand so I can push the block out to my washout area for cleaning..otherwise it would be stay indoors for the build. The crane... I think I'm going to mod it so I can move it around outside via my tractor.. I agree about the front wheels.. may swap for a little larger but low profile hard rubber as ya'll said.. the rear I with put a separate adjustable axle with air tires. With a addition of a removable ball hitch for the tractor.. That way I can lower the crane to it's normal height when in use but put it on the
  9. Has anyone installed pneumatic tires/wheels on an engine stand? I anticipate use of mine on uneven surfaces and those little steel casters won't work well in my opinion.. Also I am thinking of installing them on my cherry picker.... I have looked around online and haven't found anything like this.
  10. I also got a sweet Matco harmonic balancer tool..but bummed as I missed out on a nice front end suspension tool kit..
  11. Yeah.. the press was a bonus.. now I can do my own crank work on my vintage 2 strokers ? .. but it will be handy in so many other ways..
  12. So as a bike guy... I don't have a lot of the tools I need to start working on my project. I'm building a shop to house the Grande and as a dedicated repair shop for it. But I still need the tools and today I bought at a auction 3 items towards the endeavor... A engine hoist, and engine stand and a 20 ton press. I was lucky to get all of them for under $300 and I am very happy to work towards getting totally set up !
