  1. Thanks Rio! That appears to be the same information I got from another member. I'm going to contact that vendor tomorrow.
  2. Beautiful car! Welcome from Birmingham Alabama!
  3. Does anyone know of a rebuilding service for tilt steering wheel columns?
  4. It's mine now, lol! Waiting to go on the most deserving project I have!
  5. Good info David. To be clear, how do you think it would help me in my current situation? I sit still a good idea to look for the original motor to my Cougar? And I guess you're saying that if someone replies I should verify and then tell them they need to give me the motor back? And if they don't I could probably hire an attorney here to prosecute? Please let me know what the DMV says. I doubt I could get ant info of any kind from the DMV here. Do you think a registration in a non-title state like mine here would have as much clout as a title? Thanks. Kevin.
  6. Interesting info David. But here in Alabama, and some other states, cars older than a certain year aren't titled. As a matter of fact, the people at the DMV here get mad at me if a present a title when I buy an old Mustang. They typically say, "We don't need that. All we need is a Bill of Sale." They inspect the car and give me a registration certificate. That gives me ownership of the car. It gives me the right to do whatever I want to do with it. If the car is too rusty to build, I can part it out. Then I can sell the parts, including the engine or transmission. I find it hard to believe that anyone who presents a title from 20 years ago for a car registered in my name can claim ownership of any parts from the car. I don't think Alabama would prosecute the case. After all, they inspected the car and the paperwork and gave ownership of the car to me. If what you say is true, that someone with an old title is the owner of the original motor, then you would think it would follow that if a car is legally registered in my name in a state that doesn't title such cars, and if I find the motor to that car somewhere else, that I can force the person who possesses that motor to hand it over to me for free. That seems like a stretch. I would expect that if I find an original motor to any of the cars I own and want it back, I'll have to pay whatever the person who possesses it wants me to pay. I think the key difference is that we are talking about cars that are 50 years old. A lot of things can happen to a car in 50 years. You were talking about an experience in the 70's. Those rules might apply today for a car that's a few years old but you'd probably have to have a police report documenting the motor as having been stolen. It is, however, an interesting topic for discussion. Here's what I'll do if I find the motor to one of my cars on the boss302 forum. I'll demand that the person who has it hand it over to me immediately. When he asks why, I'll say, "because David said so!"lol.
  7. Hi all. What's the website I can post to looking for my original motor and transmission? Thanks.
  8. Hi Geoff! I am 61 and , yes, I remember back around 1982 when driving my 1971 Mustang Mach I, the throttle cable broke. Major PITA, Funny. When I read your post about "Rednecks," I didn't think you ever heard of those in Canada. They're all over the place where I live in Birmingham, AL., lol!
  9. Hi. What is the best way to search to see if someone is a member of this forum? Thanks! Kevin.
  10. Thanks Don C. That's a good idea. Randy (midlife), what do you think? Even if I have my ammeter converted to a voltmeter, don't I have to run 2 new separate wires to the voltmeter?
