  1. I have access to pretty much every year from 64-73 mustang original shop manuals. (Family restores mustangs concours style) Im trying to find a good scanner that one is big enough to scan an entire page (ie the wireing diagrams) and good enough quility that I can get them online so everyone can have them.

  2. Just a ? why not go with an electric fan. One they come on only when needed with the proper temp switch and two there is no loss of power that other wise would be another resistance on the crank. I know there is a bit more fab work involved but the benifits to me out way the cons of it. Griffen and BeCool have kits for a direct replacement for set ups with up to 22 in fans or dual off set 10 in fans. If you want i can see about getting the part numbers for everyone. I have a friend that works at BeCool and he can usually get me the part numbers for things that arent on there web page. Dont mean to jack your post Cory
  3. Those are some very very nice looking stangs.
  4. Once you start adding all that reinforcement the car becomes more ridge which in turn with make any type of vibrations be amplified to any other parts like dashs, seats, interior brackets and such. Causing a very loud interior. Some ways of fixing those rattles though and putting in the stiffners and such is to run that one side sticky foam under every screw on the dash and interior panel. (pain in the butt) If you are just looking for ride quality cobra3073 could not have said it better. Unless you wanted to go with air bags all the way around. Hope that helps Cory
  5. I have one of those dominator hoods. Im still not sure if i like it or not. Its in the crate it came in setting in the trailer with the car. When I get every thing out and the garage all set up i will put it on and get some pics, post them up. Cory
  6. Thats a good base to work with. I cant wait to see your numbers after the air gap install. Better flow, cooler runners should help bump you up a bit. Cory
  7. Recently got out of the Marines, headed back to school to actually get certified instead of being the guy who can work on everything but doesnt get paid as much as most of the master techs out there. Worked in and out of dealerships even while i was in the Marines. Went in to the custom world because i got sick of the standard maintance and started crossing over. More recently have been building custom buggys and rock trucks, high speed desert trucks and vehicals. Cory
  8. Got some questions. Has anyone done this to a coupe yet, and has anyone used the 940705K1 - Jegster Chassis Kits with Frame Rails & Roll Cages for the 71-73 mustangs. I know its gonna be a little different cause i think they are set up for more sports roof but can be modified a bit to fit the 72 mustang coupe. I have the 4 link already and have to make some brackets for the rear end. Will be running a 33-36 in rear. Just seeing if anyone else has done this yet or if anyone has work with this kit or not. Thanks Cory
  9. Its a blast. Expensive. but a blast. I would have to say more expensive then the mustangs are. Every time we go out somethings gonna break and need replaced. You gotta pay to play.
  10. As to another hobbie. Im big and i mean big in to the the off road world. While stationed down in NC. Thats pretty much all i did on my free time. I just recently got rid of my ole cherokee. She didnt have one straight body panel on her when i sold it. More currently i have an 06 tj that gets flogged any chance i can. The 06 was bought with only 24k miles on her less then a year ago. I know have nearly 40k and most of those miles are off road. I am an avid member on most of the big builder and off road sites. I am also a fabricator. I make all of my own parts if they can be made i make them. from panels, cages dashs, suspensions, frames, exhause, headers, pretty much antyhing. My cherokee And the tj
  11. Well sort of lol. Its a 2 bolt main block but 2,3,4 mains have splayed caps to make it a 4 bolt. Never broke one yet in all the stupid crap i have thrown at the motors.
  12. Thanks everyone for the comments. I dont move to fast due to my time in the service. Was a little to close to some bad things. Even through all that i would do it all over again, except for the part of getting hurt. We are in process of moving to Jeannette. Still getting used to the area. as to the engine its custom 4340 forged 4.200’’ stroker crankshaft, 6.00’’ forged H beam connecting rods, Probe custom 2618 forged pistons, Total Seal plasma moly piston rings, Clevite coated racing engine bearings, precision balanced on a 3000 engine balancer to NASCAR specs. A 4.030’’ bore Cleveland block makes the mighty 429 CID. As soon as we get settled in and the car off the trailer i will get some pics of it. Have to burn those meats off before i tear it down any how and see if i can launch that fmx that is in there. Cobra3073 what set up are you useing to get the 545, i might have to send this one back, and get that (no replcement for displacement) I do have a dove block 460 setting around the familys place some where. Cory
  13. Hello my name is Cory and Im new here but not new to the mustang world. Just recently I purchesed a 72 coupe. Its an H code car 351 2v cleveland fmx. Robin egg blue with a black top. Soon to be tore down and reworked. Already order the 429c stroker kit and a new set of cnc machined aussie heads. New C6 built tranny. Currie 9in center section 31 spline 4.10 detriot locker with alloy axle shafts. front coil overs tubular front suspension, new interior kit complete (dont like the blue interior it has. Mach-1 Dominator fiberglass hood and a set of fiber glass fenders. All other parts will come shortly. Have to get the car stripped down and see what panels need replaced. Plus i gotta start bending a cage up for the interior that will look good with all or mostly all of the stock interior parts. Hopefully the only parts that i will have to drill through is gonna be the dash just to run the down bars to the floor and to attach to the front hoop for the engine bay cage. Other then that a little about my past. I just recently got out of the Marine Corp. Prior to the military service my father had gotten me in to pre 73 mustangs. He had anything from 64 1/2s up to the 73s. I have mostly 67 and 68s. Last one was a wanna be gt. Orinally it was a j code car with the 302 that the PO had ruined. I found a pre 70 390 and rebuilt it with a toploader 4 speed from a torino and put that in. Pretty much a straight forward build other then the coil over set both front and rear. The rear was a 4 link set up with a track bar. Nothin special. So ya i guess i babbling on. Cant wait to get in this on neck deep and see where it goes.
