Welcome from a fellow 73 Mustang owner and I live in Arlington, Wa. Sounds like you have a very good project. Looking forward to pictures.

It is inexcusable for scientists to torture animals; let them make their experiments on journalists and politicians.

Thank you for all the Welcomes. I have a question for the group. I'm getting ready to order my Marti report, how long does it take to receive?

 

Mike


also a couple have asked about my username. Several reasons I use CaptJackD. First as the other member stated, I am retired navy, and second, I like pirates and have dressed up on more than a few occasions as a Pirate for Holloween and finally the D stands for Daniels.. Just a fun Twist. I have indulged a time or two. So CaptJackDaniels....

Hey Mike. The Marti report only take a few days. I think you can order an online version and print it out immediately.

 

I spent 10 years in the Navy, and we have quite a few former swabbies as members. I was a Corpsman - what rating were you?

Can anyone identify this holly carb from the pic. I also still need to check if this is the original engine or possibly a 289.

Very nice, Mike!

 

I would post the close-up picture in the 71 - 73 Mustang Talk forum and you'll probably get a lot of info.

I ordered the online deluxe report and it took a few days before i could view it. I think its a must have to give you a starting point for your cars history.

Ordered a deluxe on thursday 5th. Telling myself, when the project is finished I'll upgrade to an Elite, I'm pretty sure I will not find anything surprising in the report, this seems like it was a garden varity 302 coupe, But I have nice plans for the winter. a couple parts each paycheck.... Tks..
