    Front spring assistance needed

    Ah! I see the confusion and YES it does say for the Mach 1 or Fastback 429, WITH A/C, but NOT the convertible where it say WITHOUT A/C. How confusing can you get eh!!!! I hope that settles that score.

    Front spring assistance needed

    Agreed, Eaton prices are a bit higher than most aftermarket, but, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. Your life may depend on what you put in your car. Somethings you don't cut corners on as far as I'm concerned. That of course is just my opinion, to each their own.

    Front spring assistance needed

    Ok, not to create a shit storm, but your listing is incorrect for the 429. MC 1278 standard ride height is WITHOUT AC. AC weighs quite a lot. MC 1278 does list for the 302 vert WITH AC and the 351 2v & 4V WITHOUT AC. It is confusing for sure and I'm with you on that. Don't forget, Eaton make...

    Check out how much this car sold for at Mecum Kissimmee!

    Ah, I get it now, thanks for the clarification. 66K for a dark green, not my favorite either, Mach 1 that is somewhat similar to mine, a pretty much basic "Plain Jane", is making me think more about selling my car..... or not. A friend has a 71 429 J code 4 speed I'd love to buy, but he too...

    Front spring assistance needed

    Send 'em back and buy from EATON Detroit Springs and get the CORRECT springs for your car. You can order directly or from NPD. Eaton make 1" lowering if you want that option. Back around 2014, I bought a "front end kit" (Scott Drake crap) and the springs that came with it were 2"longer and the...

    Timing

    Good info and post 71coop. I wasn't going to chime in on this as it's dealing with a 302 and I have no personal experience with 302's (other than my first Fastback in 1974 was a 302). "Assuming" ( I hate that word!) your distributor is and will remain a stock Ford Autolite/Motorcraft, there is...

    Interesting story.

    That sounds like a nice find. An untouched motor is indeed quite rare from all accounts. Are you putting the motor back together, or is the shop doing it. As others will tell you, Cleveland's ain't your Chevy 350 and are a beast unto themselves. My engine had to rebuilt twice due to...

    Bond's Mach 1

    I'll watch this clip later AFTER I watch DAF, probably over the weekend now.

    Just joined from Chicago Il.

    Hello and a warm welcome from SW Ontario, Canada. As it's a 351C 4V, I assume the VIN shows it to be an M code eg, 1f05M xxxxxx. I too own an M code and have posted info based on my own learning curve to get the best out of MY engine, which is basically stock. I actually lowered the compression...

    Tony that's good to know. Actually now I remember you mentioning that before. All good then.

    Bond's Mach 1

    Just watched Thunderball last night. I'm noticing the movie quality is getting better as the series progressed. However, I'm just wondering how they got the Aston fixed after it hit a wall pretty hard in Goldfinger? Next on the list is Diamonds are Forever........... Maybe tonight if tv sucks.

    New fan efficiency opinion

    As for the 19" on your 71 M code, that would have been put on by someone else. If your car has the original shroud, the opening is only 19", so I'm not sure how you are getting a Derale 19" fan in there. The 18" Derale along with the Hayden fan clutch, draws a lot more air than the original 4...

    Well, that sucks! What were you able to register it with? If the VIN on the dash, then I would say at least you know THAT part was not stolen. If you have not taken a fender off before., take you time, it's a lot of work. You probably don't need to completely pull it off, but you will have to...
