  1. Gents! I just picked up a calendar today. Lulu sent me a code for 20% off: BCP2019 So if you want one of these, use this code! Not sure how long it will be good.
  2. I'm not sure I see the same thing. I also believe the hash marks are 2deg increments. On the right hand side of the image, I see another 10 deg mark (had to zoom in to see) but I interpret this position to be 10 degs below TDC... Looks to me like the marker is directly over the 10 BTDC mark. This would be consistent with 2deg increments on the smallest hash marks. Really suggest you get clearer readings on the damper before proceeding.
  3. Alright. It's that time of year again. Someone tell me we have a Mustang Babes calendar coming for 2018....
  4. Damn it. I'm still stuck on Nov 2016, a tremendous month of last year.... Now WTH am I gonna do? Can't stay stuck there forever.. Gotta find some pin-up girls for the shop someehere...
  5. I used these same guys for a dual system with H-pipe on a 302 69 coupe. Fantastic fit. I would say that the mufflers are a tad on the quiet side, but the exhaust system was just fantastic. Highly recommend them. There was not a huge cost to ship, and I even live in TX. So, I had an excellent experience with them.
  6. Thanks for the help guys. No more evidence yet as I keep experimenting. These problems that pop up randomly are slow to troubleshoot!
  7. Hey guys. It's been awhile from me on this topic, but I am nearing a complete rebuild, and I have a new recommended option for cleaning up bolts. it takes a day or two and involves the rock tumbler, but I have found a simpler easier method. Before I was recommending use of grit and water in a rock tumbler. The method worked well, but I found use of the grit to be "kind of a pain". I had to spend time rinsing.... and trying to "save the grit for another use" etc. I felt like it was a necessary thing to get the small spaces clean, but I have found something easier and likely better.
  8. Well it seems the old girl is "powering down" on me occasionally now. Has happened 3x now while driving. At low-speed or idle, but in-gear. Car is C4 auto trans. Symptom is complete power outage. Engine immediately quits, radio, lights, other internal electrical also go out. In all cases, after a few mins (usually including several shifts of the gear selector trying to get it restarted), everything comes back and behaves normally. I'm wondering if this could be NSS related? Car is known to have occasional issue where shifter needs to be pushed full fwd to get NSS lockout to all
  9. Ran into a gentleman today in town that had a nice dark green driver 73. He was unhappy about the 73 bumper and wanted to replace it with a chrome bumper. I am bumping this to the front of the list so that if the guy makes it to this site per my recommendation, he'll be able to find this thread.... Jay (Friendswood, TX
  10. Great feedback- It would be cool to have more tech info. If you pay for the "fully custom order" ($80) you caould probably have him add any of the info or styling you like....
  11. I just heard of this artist on the 69stang forum. The artist will create a custom "blueprint" of your car. $80 for a custom (basically whatever you want on there, you can send him specs, pics etc), but he will do a "standard" year for $25 or so. Blueprints are 18x24in, and look pretty nice. Electronic download, you print yours at a local shop. I'm getting a custom one done for a buddy who has a 55 packard patrician, but I haven't seen the results yet. the guys on the 69 forum said it was a great product. You can look at the 1969 standard print here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/385
  12. Here is some hopefully helpful info. I rebuilt my proportioning valve (been thru this stuff with 2 cars - a 71 & the other a 69), and I would say one thing that may have been missed above is that the plastic sensor switch that is in the prop valve should not be exposed to fluid. If fluid is coming out of the sensor switch, this means that there is a fixable, but internal leak in the prop valve. There is a "shuttle valve" inside that moves back and forth if the front & rear hydraulic chambers are not producing balanced hydraulic pressure (note that bleeding brakes and not using a
