Hi guys... It's been a Looooong time since I've logged on.

I'm here again now and hope to participate regularly.

I've got time now that I'm not working and I'd love to get back into the stang talk.

Just ordered some new custom plates and are about to join a new car club here. (have just shifted from Melbourne to Qld)

I've done a bit on the old girl since last being here. The AOD is a beautiful relief!, the CHI heads add quite a wallop, together with the new comp cams pro magnum ultra xd roller rockers.

Nearly forgot, with the AOD upgrade, I also swapped the diff gears from Motive 3.25 to Strange 3.5...

catch soo...

Welcome back.  The AOD is on my wish list for maybe next year.  What tranny did you put in?

Thanks guys... Yes the forum IS very different! Let's not get too modern, we might all end up wearing 20" low profile wheels soon! lol

Brett, I haven't seen him. I've only just retired to sunny Hervey bay. Joined the Conrodders Hot rod and Customs. A lovely bunch of old farts like me! lol (41 members)

To my surprise another member also has a 71. Grabber green LHD, (1F02H). But it does have a shaker and the honeycomb panel on the back.

What I've done to mine in the last little while. New CHI heads (stage 1, any higher and the spring pressures will wear out the hyd cam). Huge improvement in power! Over 50hp easy...

Got the 7/16 stud version heads for the Comp Cams Ultra pro magnum stainless roller rockers. hardended guides, pushies, etc) These rockers, being stainless didn't need to be chunky like the aluminium ones, therefore fit under the original valve covers.

To answer Lux's q, I'm so glad I got the AOD. (Kevlar clutches). Everything is freeway here, so about 2000 revs is all I need. (Running Strange 3.5 rear diff gears -very quiet compared to Motive)  All that was needed was a shortened tailshaft and modified tranny cross member. (plus lokar linkage to tranny and holley)

Also using a dakota digital gear position thingy for my custom console gear indicators.

Anyone done anything weird and wonderful to theirs! (I want some new ideas now that I'm retired with plenty of time on my hands!)

cheers for now. Jim
