  1. TheDude, What is your budget? I have the 1994-2004 Cobra 13″ Front Brakes on your Classic Ford kit installed on my 1973 Coupe. I bought it s few years ago. Works very well. The price for the kit then, was reasonable. Wow, not cheap these days!
  2. Jomar1957, I had suspected that you were asking for. If Don cannot help, then look at the Ford F Series from the early 70’s and to maybe early 80’s. The tilt mechanism was the same. The universal joint is the same. The Lower shaft will be different in length. You may get one cheap and use the parts. They are not making this stuff anymore. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Are you looking for the universal joint inside the tilt housing? That is one reason I posted that video! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Rocketfoot, Good work! Thanks! I was trying to get the new updated site back on Tap-a-Talk. Any news or updates on when that will be available again to allow to follow?
  6. All, Several mechanics tell me the key is to let the transmission seal, "Vulcanize" . I have heard to let it sit over night. I had Ford change my F-150 Transmission fluid with the mechanic stating there were be a 2 to 3 hour vulcanization process to let seal. NO Leaks
  7. I also had the quick steer ratio installed and it is a bit touchy. As Hemikiller stated, " The quick ratio definitely takes time to get used to! "
  8. All, I have an update- I received a quote to have my current center console shifter cover vacuum plated by Vacuum Orna Metal - 11380 Harrison Rd. Romulus, MI 48174 $109.00
  9. I agree with donkost, I can see a fresh up rebuild with hydraulic roller cam system, and roller rockers. I do know that the 1970 Cyclone 429's had 375 hp. from the factory. Maybe you can look at the compression and other specs to mimic that 429.
  10. All, Has anybody purchased the reproduction Center Console snifter cover? There are times where reproduction is cheaper that re-chroming original. https://www.cjponyparts.com/black-console-plate-assy-1971-1973/p/CONP17B/

  16. All, It is amazing when after 8 years of working the 1973 coupe, some hardware seem to have legs. Case in point is the hardware that bolts the sliding tracks the bottom of the front seat frames. I am fortunate to have a location that has several original 1971-1972 Mach one parts seats to get the hardware. What surprised me was the Torx head bolts. What? Huh? When did Ford start using these? Source: 1971-72 Mustang Interior Assembly Manual - CC. Jim Osborne 5002 Page 44 Since these bolts new are pretty much non-existence, I am going to source some grade 8 that will
  17. Ash0468, I am with the first 3 forum members. You have a matching 1971 M code 4v engine that was a stout motor in its day. I highly recommend these books to read! https://images.app.goo.gl/f952yzXxij2pYWAR8 https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1884089275/carlytheautow-20
