    Foxbody (5.0) engine mount distance question (for owners w/o engines or bare K-frames)

    Title more or less alludes to what I'm after, but here's the full scoop: I'm looking to getting into a ridiculously obscure project that may involve an LS swap (or the "World's Most Boring Engine Swap That Need Not Be Named™" if you prefer), and - as odd as this may sound - I don't think anyone...

    Nice to see another Miamian here!  ::thumb::  -Kurt

    Any interest in a half-finished '71 M-code project for $7,000?

    Nope. Glad I held onto it too. Valiant has been sold though.

    4-leaf springs - 250lb rate?

    Pretty much adds up then. Decided to pass on those springs, even though I think "250lb" was more of a convenient number that the seller pulled out of his butt than anything else... -Kurt

    4-leaf springs - 250lb rate?

    Doubt it. "They are the 4 leaf stock height 250lb more weight capacity helps with squating under hard accel." He knows what it means. Still, sounds like a hell of an upsell. -Kurt

    4-leaf springs - 250lb rate?

    I know Q will probably beat me over the head for this, but before I go ahead and frame table my '71 Mach to verify whether I've got a tweaked framerail or not (long story - check the build thread for details), I figured I might as well swap the rear leafs - just to make sure the slight squatting...

    I finally got my favorite license plate.

    The entire frame is taller by about a quarter of an inch for it too. Probably a different supplier. I've seen at least two other variants too - one from the '50s, and the other a transition to the two here (or a transition between, don't really know). Been missing the Mustang scene myself, but...

    I finally got my favorite license plate.

    It only took a year (one year and four days, to be exact!), but I wound up getting my hands on one more LA City Ford frame (the one on the left) - and this one is bang-on screen correct  :D  Now if I could only finish a Ford around here in my sea of Mopar crap. -Kurt

    Wow - that goes back a long time. Pretty sure I don't - but check with forum member BigBlue. He might have one. -Kurt

    When a 1968 Plymouth Satellite 4-door enters your life...

    It was a busy day today! Drove about 40 miles north to pick up some '80s B-van rims from a gentleman who had them on his '70 Challenger. Threw them on, and immediately went to tackle the Belvederization of the interior - covered in better detail here...

    Exterior antenna delete - Fox-era delete plate work for our cars?

    Sorry to say I haven't, Tony. Back end of the car is still in bits, so the antenna is still priority #20,409,234 in line. I still put a hollowed-out tennis ball over the antenna stub when sliding the car cover on... -Kurt

    When a 1968 Plymouth Satellite 4-door enters your life...

    I really can't believe I shared these photos on the Mopar forums and forgot to do so here. Looks like I have something to chase the Mustang with now  ;) But those photos were taken ages ago - and ages have gone by as the Satellite is barely the same - suspension and brake-wise - as it was...

    When a 1968 Plymouth Satellite 4-door enters your life...

    Guess what I did today? The 2.76:1's got ousted for 3.23:1's. Unfortunately, I screwed up setting the axle endplay a tad too tight, so I've got to go back in there and re-adjust it again tomorrow...and I'll probably be aching all over worse than I am now. At any rate, a quick spin...

    When a 1968 Plymouth Satellite 4-door enters your life...

    Just sitting around here with the back end still not taken care of, nor the left quarter panel damage fixed to my liking - mainly the crease in the lower bodyside. The metal has been badly worked over so much that I'm really considering replacing the lower rear quarter, but I refuse to use the...
