    Took a Nice Little Ride Today.

    First longer trip since the Pro Flo 4 install. It was maybe a 200 mile loop here in the Texas Hill Country. Folks were out in numbers from hot rods and Harley's to loads at the wineries and just walking the streets. It was great to see. I had a nice Thai lunch and hit a classic car dealer and a...

    Pro-Flo 4 Up and Running

    Well today I picked up my car, a 427 Windsor 73 Mach 1, from the shop and I am more than pleased. I had dismantled the manifold so I could have it powder coated black. They did the install as I am have never been comfortable with "wiring". As has been written easy cold start, crazy throttle...

    Walk Around

    So I tried to do a walkaround, about 90 seconds, while trying to import here it came as 150 MB so not allowed. What am I missing as I have seen longer ones, minutes, at the below MB so what am I missing?

    Tail Light Seal Replacement

    I am replacing the seals on my 73 Mach 1 and note that there was some kind or sealant/glue between the seal and lens. What should I use when I install the new seals?

    Rear "Trap" Door Releases

    I was opening mine today for the about the third time since I bought the car five years ago. It opened fine but the "release latches" looked like ordinary nails to me and while playing with one it pulled out. What should they be?

    What Goes Above My Center A/C Vent?

    I installed a new center dash section deleting the gauges as I installed a Dakota Digital system. What belongs in this void?

    Trunk "Plugs"

    What are these called and where can I get them? I see kits but it is unclear to me that they contain these. TIA.

    Dome Light Replacement

    Dumb question here but I need to swap the bulb in the subject light on my 73 Mach 1 and see nothing on it in the manuals. I have proven to to pretty solid breaking little tabs when doing such (just did it on my 17 Boxster S...). I assume I squeeze in the middle of the long sides and pull? TIA.

    Stage 8 Locking Header Bolts

    I will soon have a set of JBA long tubes arriving for my 427 Windsor that will land in my '73 Mach 1 Q code. Has anyone used the subject header bolts? Thoughts or proven alternatives appreciated. I will be using Remflex gaskets. I tried a search to no avail.

    Engine Build Complete

    I spent last Thursday watching the assembly of my Windsor based 427. I wanted a good street engine making torque/HP in the RPM range I tend to drive. On Friday it was on the dyno for break in and tune. After 16 runs the tune was nailed. I am more than pleased with the results. It is going in my...

    I will soon be swapping my original 351 Clevelend in my '73 for a 427 Windsor stroker from a local builder (Smeding). I am also going to go with the Vintage Air Front Runner serpentine accessory drive as well. As such, I will need to go with and an electric fuel pump and cooling fan(s). I am...

    Front End Replacement is Complete

    Out went the original (literally) front suspension/steering on my 73 Mach 1 and in went a Street or Track coil over system with their strut rods (Shaun was a pleasure to work with during the install and alignment). New tie rods ends via Moog and new idler and pitman arms. New 4 1/2 leaf mid-eyes...

    Alignment and Clearances

    Rather than continue to pile on the below alignment thread I will start anew. I did a bit more on my 73 with the SoT coilover system and landed on the following: Camber: -0.6 driver   -0.5 passenger Caster  : +4.0 driver  +3.3 passenger Toe in  : 1/8" I would like the 3.3 to match the 4.0...

    First Look

    My son and I completed the installation of the new 4 1/2 leaf mid-eyes and Bilstein's today. The Street or Track coil over system has been installed as well. I set the front about midway up the tube for a first try. We just got it down on the wheels and it seems to sit about how I wanted. I...
