    71 Standard Grill paint

    I am currently repainting my engine compartment, working on painting the grill.  Thanks for the information concerning the Duplicolor Ford Charcoal Grey Metallic paint to use around the head lights.  I noticed that it was not Semi Black or Slop Grey as most of the other parts.  I also plan to...

    My car finally has Pwr Disc Brakes!!

    I installed a similar kit from GPS yesterday and I was wondering if you have experienced any problem with your flexible brake line connection I had to remove the last screw holding my stock hard line to the frame on each side to get the end of the provided flex line to connect. The connection...

    Wire for radio

    I wish I had known that before I wired mine to the fuse box. But I guess it is never too late to go back and change it.

    Edelbrock 1403 and a stock 302 PCV hose

    Problem solved! - I found a black elbow that fits on the PCV (Dorman 46017) with an opening for a 3/8" ID. I also bought a 3/8" to 3/8" barb to use with the 3 feet of 3/8" PCV/fuel line. This will allow me to use my stock cap and make a clean connection to the front of the 1403 Edelbrock...

    Edelbrock 1403 and a stock 302 PCV hose

    Yep - I thought about that.  The 3/8" gas line was not the perfect fit in the old stock, molded PCV hose but I am sure a "new" one - with a little trimming would work.  Thanks

    Edelbrock 1403 and a stock 302 PCV hose

    Thanks Jason. You are the best. Saved me some time as well. I am hoping this upgrade is going to work. Seems like every time you buy one thing - you need to buy something else. Woodrow

    Edelbrock 1403 and a stock 302 PCV hose

    I am still waiting on parts for my new carburetor project for my stock 302 - but I can see the PCV is going to be a problem.  The smaller PCV on the Edelbrock 1403 is in the front and uses a 3/8 ID - (I think that's the correct term for the inner dimensions for the hose).  I fuel line fits...

    Is a Spacer needed between my new Edelbrock 2121 Intake and carb

    Change of mind on the spacer.  The 1403 will fit without the spacer - but it will be tight on the throttle side since I had to order and add the Ford 1483 throttle kit for my kickdown for the tranny.  So I did my measurements with the play dough and had about 2&1/4 inches to the hood - and I...

    Is a Spacer needed between my new Edelbrock 2121 Intake and carb

    Maybe I can handle this intake by myself - I always had to call in help with the stock one.

    Is a Spacer needed between my new Edelbrock 2121 Intake and carb

    And I am still trying to figure out exactly how to reduce the size of the hose on my stock PVC hose to the smaller size of the PVC in the front or the back.
