    Sport steering wheel

    Mike Berardi. He only had one. The horn button was broken so I bought a Dennis Carpenter repop and swapped the emblem. They pop up on eBay here and there. 77-78 Mustang II.

    Staggered tire sizes

    Hey everybody. It's time for new tires. I'm having a tough time making up my mind on a front tire size for the Mach 1. Currently it has 235-60r15 front and 255-60r15 rear. I want to do a skinnier tire up front but I can't decide on a 215-65 or a 215-70. The difference is an inch 26" vs 27". Does...

    Rh engine bay wiring

    Hey everyone. I am in process of installing a new set of battery cables and alternator harness and noticed looking at some other engine bays my voltage regulator and junction block are mounted in a different location. I don't see extra holes where it would have been mounted any other way. Can...

    Head Gaskets Options

He said we can probably mill the block to fix it since the damage isn't too deep. The head is trash. Luckily a customer of his brought a set of Aussie 2v heads...

    Head Gaskets Options

    Hey everybody. Well I broke the car drag racing over the weekend. Lost compression on cyl's 2 and 3. Pulled the cylinder head, found the gasket burnt between the two cylinders. The block and cyl head are also damaged. I'm in talks with the machine shop about repairing the block and head (they...

    Caltracs and Subframe Connectors

    That does look a bit tight, nothing a hammer and careful hands couldn't fix. How does it hook with that setup?

    Caltracs and Subframe Connectors

    Take your time, its not going to happen for at least a few months. On a side note what size front sway bar are you running? Mine is stock right now, sad truth is my 2008 F150 out handles my Mustang.... I was doing a little research and many are suggesting the 1" bar and saying 1 1/8" is...

    Caltracs and Subframe Connectors

    Hello out there. Anyone running Caltracs with Tinman Fabrication subframe connectors? I am really interested in the Caltracs. My car currently has subframe connectors by Global West, been there since 2004, I came across the Tinman versions and they look much better in my opinion. Looking at...

    Stock gauges and wiring. Tried it with the car cold not running last night with the ignition on and lights on. The gauge didn't move until I ran the car and its operating temp. Then with lights on it climbs.

    Couple issues, hopefully someone can help

    I tried providing a body ground using a cable from the negative post to the fender apron, no change. The gauge will also go full H with just the parking lights on as well. The fuel and oil gauges don't act erractic with the lights on. I will have to do some more testing. My car only has a...
