    Hello from Jarvenpaa Finland

    Hi Iku64, nice Mustang you got there, have you joined the FMOC Finland? There's a some information about these cars but not as much as here. I don't follow FMOC forum much, I did followed it for long time though. This is a great forum to ask specific '71-'73 questions. Greetings from...

    Get Mach1 into 12.5 second zone

    C6 is one heavy puppy when comparing to Toploader. C6 is also a power robber, it takes more hp than Toploader. Surely it changes quicker, but otherwise I am not thrilled about the C6. If you want to go fast, you might want to search for a C4. It can be build to hold great power and it wont cut...

    460 take a chance?

    D0VE-C cylinderheads are the most sought after 429/460 heads after the 429 CJ heads. D0VE-C heads provides you a small cc combustion chamber 72cc which is small in the world of BB engines. You can get a good compression ratio with flattop pistons, no need to go heavy domed pistons. As the guys...

    Danish Mustang “Pro-Touring" project - Dominator 526

    I'll bet that the new engine is making Daniel to work harder!!! Should be nice ride when done, I mean the enginebuilder is knows his stuff when it comes to SBF windsors. Nice fabricating Daniel with the lower sheet metals - looks good.

    Toploader

    Thomas, with what engine have you ripped the Toploader apart? In my experience it takes streettires with 3400 lbs and a 572 cid 750 hp and you're going to brake the Nascar toploader. Not in the first or second gear but when it starts to hook.

    Hydraulic Clutch questions

    Guys, have you checked these puppies? They are sweet pieces and it gives you a clean firewall, mounts the brakebooster under the dash - bit of pricey though. "71 Mustang RRS Stealth under-dash booster/master cylinder system – compact, complete including pedals and hydraulics, dual reservoir...

    Hydraulic Clutch questions

    Nice looking setups. I only wonder why they don't mount the pedal cylinder like the MB does it, it only leaves the fluid reservoir to be mounted under the hood and now clearance problems with the brakebooster.

    Thanks Thomas, I love the hood! If you ever want to restore your Mach 1, I am interested in the hood... Innocent looking ride (exept the hood)!!

    Hydraulic Clutch questions

    I am using a McLeod throw out bearing with McLeod Street twin clutch assembly. I fabricated the pedal cylinder from a Mercedes Benz W123 or W124 clutch pedal assembly. I bought a new MB clutch cylinder and installed it to assembly. I took the brake pedal off and used the Mustangs original...

    Jon Kaase Boss 429

    Great!! Am I mistaken, but somehow I have missed pictures from the ready car & hood outside the carage?? :) I visited with my family Kolmården on last Thursday - Friday and we really enjoyed all the animals and the world largest roller coaster made out of wood. Weather was great. I saw only...

    Jon Kaase Boss 429

    What's the status with the car?  I visited Jon Kaase Racing Engines at GA last year. There were a bunch of new B9 heads on shelf and he also had an ol' IHRA prostock 816 inch big muthur laying on the ground. It was for sale... I was seriously thinking for a few seconds that would I dare to ask...

    Danish Mustang “Pro-Touring" project - Dominator 526

    600 hp, isn't that more than you're originally thinkin off? Not that is a bad thing though, nice to have more power - allways. It should be fun car with that hp level, if you can make it hook rightly it should fly to low 11s on quarter or in best case scenario to very high 10s. 11s should be...

    How do I get a the little Gun in my Profile?

    In January I got my first AR15 riffle. It uses DPMS upper & lower, Armalite bolt & carrier, Lothar stainless 18" Barrel, Jard trigger, 15" parallax tactial ultra slim rail, Burris reddot and Meoptra RD 1-4x22 scope. I absolutely love it and the lack of recoil is amazing. I use it as my...

    Danish Mustang “Pro-Touring" project - Dominator 526

    You're in good hands with Ville from Finland. He knows his SBF stuff as well as Ford FE and 429/460 stuff. SBF is his real expertise. You can see his restored 390 cid '66 GTA Fairlane, its on original import car from 1966. How much of hp are you looking for Daniel?

    Slicks at the back

    I'll be damned. I checked the rulebook NHRA and national Finnish Hot Rod Association's (FHRA) rulebook - uses the same picture as above. Spacers are allowed. But, they do not mention a word from spacers like prospacer which are bolted on. Rulebook only states the text above that the studs needs...

    Danish Mustang “Pro-Touring" project - Dominator 526

    Talked with the "guy from Finland", he said that the 8" rearpiece is probably the strongest in whole Europe. Nice. Wicked looking rear tires, make sure to slam the rear to the weeds so the low profile tires looks good.

    Slicks at the back

    Do the first mock up without spacer. Just check how it sits, if it contacts the inner wheel well then don't install the stud bolts. Eibach is one the best manufacturers for the spacers. But, all the sanctioning bodies does not allow to use wheel spacers f.ex. NHRA. Now wonder why? Because the...

    WIDE-BODY KIT FROM SCRATCH

    Nice article!!! But you don't need to do anything to be able to mount 315/35-20 tires to 71 wheelwells. No minitubbing or flares needed - been there done that. Article should be saying that you can mount 345 rears with ease - right??? Nice job though.::thumb::

    Slicks at the back

    1" spacers, Plus 400hp & bb torque, manual, drag slicks... Are you using pro spacer style spacers which are bolted in or are you running 3" studs? I am not feeling comfortable with the spacers, slicks and strip combination. Might work and can also rip the studs out of aluminum spacer...

    Slicks at the back

    30x9-15 two possible way to read, diffrence comes by the usage of a tire. Drag tire 30 = is the height of the tire 9 = thread width 15 = rim diameter street tire 30 = is the height of the tire as above 9 = section width 15 = rim diameter as above For example my M/T ET Drag tires...
