  1. The remote trunk release was a dealer option. I've never seen a trunk lid that didn't have a lock cylinder, so it was probably filled in by the P.O. Steve
  2. Just my rule of thumb, I think double pumpers are best on cars with improved air flow (headers, better intake, higher profile cam) and manual transmission. Anything close to stock and/or with an automatic and they tend to bog the engine down when you bury the gas pedal. Steve
  3. Same with me. I showed up one day to check on progress of a car I was having done and the place was dark. I went next door and asked that business what happened, and they told me he folded up a couple of weeks before. I told them my car was in there and the guy said the body shop owner said I might show up. The shop doors were unlocked and my keys were in the ignition. Any one could have taken it. They also hit my hood with a forklift getting their shop equipment out. One year and a lawsuit later, I got my money back.
  4. I have one for all the old Fords I've bought. I haven't bought a "new" one in a long time, so I got mine while they were still free.
  5. Yes, thank you. I have a hard copy (two big books) but am saving this, as PDF's are easily searchable. Steve
  6. I use the Ford Master Parts Catalog. I think ebay and some vendors have it available in a digital format.
  7. Can I suggest a possible change in direction? My lift has a 240V motor and a push button to turn it on when I want it to go up. You might consider changing the motor and eliminating the VFD and contactor. Steve
  8. A little trivia, just because. 240V is indeed two 120V sources, measured to ground, but they are 180 degrees out of phase with each other. That's how you get to 240V.
  9. Welcome, also from north Idaho, but a little south of you.
  10. My reply to several of the responses. Yes, you could probably check all the option boxes and build the same car. You could do that with almost any car, excluding things like the Boss, and in '72, you could get the HO in a coupe or convertible. The point is it was an option package, that put it all together for you. New cars don't bring me the same excitement now as they used to. I figure that's because I'm getting old and I've seen the same stuff over and over. My kids still get excited about new cars. That's probably as it should be, because I still drive a 20 year old truck with 2
  11. It could be a bad headlight switch. Repop stuff isn't as good as original. I would say check for a short in the auxiliary/parking light circuit. I've also seen bad bulbs cause a short, so check them.
  12. From a selfish point of view, I'm stuck with satellite internet now. By the time the damn things download, I've moved on.
  13. Another way to look at it is, the 351C was used for about 5 years, 50 years ago. The 351W was used for 30 years as recently as 20 years ago, and is still available as a Ford Racing crate engine. They are just a lot more common. It doesn't pay for a manufacturer to tool up and produce a bunch of something that may only sell a small number each year.
  14. I feel your pain. It could have been worse though.
