My back up lights don't work. and unfortunately they look fine. is there anything that could be traced back to the wiring that I dont know about? my brake lights work fine, turn signals etc. but without the back up...

    But yessir i did confirm its a Cleveland motor on the yellow sticker on the cowl, and the way the radiator hose goes into the motor (motor is the one that came with the car too)

    A knucklehead needs carb advice

    I'm planning to make 330 hp max as i dont need anything over that at 17, so just an intake swap, maybe engine/trans rebuild to service it, only modifications would be a carb and intake. (and new exaust) its the side thing on the passenger side where it has the 2 arrows and 7 slots saying lean...

    Alright, so i adjusted the knob. it was all the way to the rich side i think, it was to the left. moved it over a little bit. now the car idles better and shifts better. Crazy how such a small adjustment changed the whole cars feeling.

    it is a cleveland as the rad hose comes out vertically, one of the differences between the windsor and cleveland

    aaah okay, so This intake would work to use the 4b carb on the 2v head for now, until i can fully convert it

    and im assuming that there is no way to mount the 4 barrel carb properly, without changing the heads, as well as the intake right

    From what i saw the 2121 looks like its for the 289/302, the 2665 would be for the 351 4v right? and I'll be sure to send pictures of the area, i just have not done it just yet. and is it easier to delete the egr valve or buy the intake that isnt marked "Non EGR"

    quarter panel patching

    +1 you were right on that one. When I pulled the quarter off, all my powerwashing went to waste on my driveway as it is orange again, but Ive patched the wheel arches properly, then de-rusted them then sprayed them with rust bullet, the trunk and drop offs have been replaced as well.

    quarter panel patching

    Also, Does anybody know where to get the colormatch paint for Blue Glow (3K) and what would I do for clear coat? I'm fairly new to mechanics and I am just learning here and there. I want to cover up the primer for now until I get all the body work done, then the car can be sent off for blast...

    quarter panel patching

    Is the extended bumper actually useful safety wise? I prefer the cut back look like you did, but I am a new driver, and Im 100% positive will at least get into a fender bender with this car at one point. if the bumper will save the rear trunk brace rail I'll leave it on, because I do not want to...
