    Misc. hose wrapped around shock

    Yup, and it is a bit dried up too so changing her out is on the to do list. She rides in dry weather so that helps me procrastinate without feeling guilty. 👍🏻

    They say it is the best '72 Mach1 on the planet

    Like Kyle Busch? 😂

    If I ever meet Emily, I will agree with her and add that she is one of the sharpest minds as well out in the honest “real news” sphere..

    What did you do to your car today?

    What did you do to your car today?

    The new gear came today and I gave her a wipe with some moly this time to see if it lasts longer than the previous one. If I could only stop driving her “safely” like an A-hole I might get more life on the gear this time, but how does one stop doing that? 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Parts Wanted Brake booster assembly

    My suggestion is to contact WCCC and see what they can help you with. If you are down they may be able to turn one for you in a few weeks. I have a perfect Bendix core I purchased on here a month or so ago that I could help you with if you are still driving safely but need a rebuilt PBB. Of...

    What did you do to your car today?

    Yesterday morning I went to go fill her up (13 gals @ 8.5 smiles/gal) after I went through $40/day last 🇺🇸 weekend. I then took a cruise into N IL to check on a picket line and make sure the guys had plenty of water and check their temps… I also decided I was going to try to not drive her like...

    351 engine tear down

    Looking good. Did you put a dab of silicone on the ends of the seals before you put the bearing cap on?

    It's a GASSS

    To me it’s zero for my carb/engine set up. I can’t speak for anyone else but where I live we “currently” have those options. Bouncing between premium UL and corn fed will always perform differently agree?

    One of those days

    You are right on point with a 2V and torque is adequate for one wheel peels in 1st gear, so your next question is what are your desires in driving the car? How fast do you want it to go divided by how much cabbage are you willing to drop + how fast do you want to drop the cash = your own...

    It's a GASSS

    This morning in SE WI: 87 w/10% @ 4.89 / 88 w/15% @ 4.85 / 91 no eth @ 5.46 / 93 no eth @ 5.85. I don’t really notice a big diff between 91 or 93, but have never put any corn in my tank because it will affect jetting and of course, timing in a carb’d set up.

    351 Cleveland harmonic balancer slipped photos

    Either because a “made in china” tappet cam washed out the #2 exhaust valve lobe, or the damper just decided to cash it in and enough was enough. To me there were no obvious signs of degradation with the “old one” when the previous engine build was going together as it went on as normal and...

    New problem, engine randomly dies, no spark

    Glad to hear that you found the gremlin. I went through a similar situation a few years ago and mine was the connection on the I post of the starter relay as they are M/F socket connectors and for some reason were worn out and loose enough for intermittent contact.
