    Fan shroud

    Hi all. A long shot I'm sure but if I don't ask! I'm after a fan shroud for my 1971 mustang 429 CJ. Its the same as the Torino 429 CJ. Ford part # DOOZ 8146D. A repro is fine and doesn't have to be new at that, so long as the condition is ok. The other thing is that I live in central France...

    Quickjack lifting points

    Thing with the Quickjack, which I looked at and rejected, is that I couldn't see that you could line the lift up in line with the body as the front and rear jacking points are not parallel together as the front is more inboard than the rear. As the Quickjack tilts backwards when lifting this...

    Auto transmission stuck

    Hi, I'm sorry but not sure I follow your last sentence. What parts (and their location) are you referring to?  Many thanks Andy

    Auto transmission stuck

    I haven't done this before so guess I did stuff it up unfortunately. I presume the valve body will have to come out again then? Cheers Andy

    Auto transmission stuck

    The car is level on the ramps. I won't top up, don't want to overfill but as I have to pull the pan again anyway...... The shifter will move from Park to Reverse, just about, but no further than that so no other positions. I presume that I'd need to drop the valve body again to re-install...

    Auto transmission stuck

    Just checked the dipstick (should have done it before) and there's less than one cm showing. I know it should only be about half way up the little holes when cold but sounds a little low? As she's still on ramps I can't run her up hot to check. Would you suggest I top up a little first? Cheers...

    Auto transmission stuck

    Thanks Hemi. Bugger, I followed all the instructions so was confident that I had swapped the springs etc over correctly and reassembled and reinstalled as I should have. But it sounds like there is more to it than just that which was not included in the Transgo notes? Cheers Andy

    Auto transmission stuck

    Help guys!  My 71 mustang has a C6 auto transmission. Nine months ago I ramped her to do some maintenance work. I did a transmission flush (7L of ford ATF) and changed the filter. I put in a Transgo 67 1-2 shifter kit too, a new vacuum modulator, a shorter pin and turned the adjustment screw a...

    What might have been done to my engine in the past?

    Hi All, Been a while and still working my way through a comprehensive servicing of my 429 CJ RA C6 Mach 1. Life gets in the way, as it does, and it's only recently that I've got a set of lifts to give me semi decent working room under the car. I just cleared some oil and crud from the engine...

    Big block headers

    If you don't have to get headers there's always the cast iron interceptor manifolds (not CJ/SCJ ones) as much cheaper and shouldn't really give up much in the way of performance compared with the ford shorties?
