    Flapper Door Air Cleaner

    Sounds like a find! You sure the dizzy is correct? Mine came with a single point vacuum advance distributer. The reason I asked about the air cleaner was exactly what I have found. From what I understand after January 1, 1973 Ford stopped the installation of the air cleaner system due to EPA...

    Cal Tracs

    These are the best traction devices you can buy for a leaf spring car. The were first developed by Wayne Calvert for the 428 CJ cars. They will wake your car up on launch. Don't know about the "lower HP" statement. If you look at most of the S/S drag cars you will see these under there. Fastest...

    Flapper Door Air Cleaner

    Exactly what Kit said that is the way the system works. The side flapper is to give the engine a shot of extra air flow when the throttle is cracked open. Same principle as the Ram Air system, no vacuum doors open, vacuum doors close. By the way do you know the build date on your 73 Q code...

    HELP: Brake pedal travel?

    If your adjusters are froze replace them. The brakes need to adjust them selves that is why they are called self adjusters. Not very exspensive and can be picked up at any parts house.

    Anyone have any luck with Top loader "imposter"

    They look just like a top loader, very easy to take advantage of someone that does not know what they are looking at. Yes they were used in Granadas.

    Best upgrade I've done (Shocks)

    I have a full set of the KYB gas shocks on my bench if anyone is looking for a good riding shock. They are brand new. I had to step up to the Gas- adjust due to wheel hop that showed up after I installed the rears. I loved the ride, but with the lead foot. If anyone just wants a good ride these...

    Need help identifying Holley Carb

    Sounds like you could have a bad eccelerator diaphram. You might try shooting some B12 carb cleaner down the airbleeds. If you are going to look at the pump diaphram you will have to pull the front bowl and metering block anyway, shoots some B12 through all of the passages and blow them out...

    Need help identifying Holley Carb

    Looks like a street avenger as said. I think you are dead on with it being a 670. I am running a 770 S.A. with a milled choke housing and really like it. I had some issue after about 6 months of use just weekend cruising and some track time etc...pulled it apart and did some fine tuning, milled...

    Anyone have any luck with Top loader "imposter"

    Do'nt do it. It has really weird ratios. Basicly a 3 speed tranny with a OD.I put one behind a 289 in a 68 stang many years ago before I figured out what I had. After many hours of making a Hurst shifter work on it I pulled it right back out and found a real top loader. Differant as night and day!
