    Reverse Trike 68 Camero

    Let's just be thankful it wasn't a Mustang.......... of any year. What a friggin joke. I get that some people want to be creative and try something different, but this takes the cake. It won't be in my garage any to soon..... I mean ever.

    New from Texas here

    Hello and welcome from SW Ontario Canada. That is quite an inheritance and deserves to be done right and back on the road. Sheriff mentioned fuel line rubber, make sure you get fuel injector grade as it is somewhat ethanol resistant. After 15 years, there is a ton of stuff that may need...

    New owner, new to forum

    Yes, follow the instructions. Placing the spring washers needs to be done as described. Check the threaded holes in the water pump flange are clean and good. I also used a drop of blue Loctite on the threads. If you find you need longer bolts, make sure they are grade 8. If I remember, the fan...

    How to hold down TMI center console? Also, what shift boot for the mini console?

    No it's not available for the 71-73 and the one for the 70 doesn't fit, I tried one and it's nowhere near.

    How to hold down TMI center console? Also, what shift boot for the mini console?

    When I did my mini console with the 71 4 speed rectangular shifter, I added a 3/8" piece of plastic I had on hand. I also added an extra 1/8" as well. This filled up the gap nicely, but your car has a 6 speed I think, so might be different. I have pics.......... somewhere!! If and when I find...

    Recommended car haulers

    My condolences also. I used Reliable Carriers to haul my car (enclosed trailer) from California to Detroit. Very good and zero issues. That was back in 2008 mind you, I would use them again.

    Parts For Sale Selling some old original parts off my 71 Mach 1.

    UPDATE: I'm adding the original 4300 carb and Philco AM radio from my 71 Mustang. The carb was supposedly rebuilt and it certainly looks like it could have been. There are no visible numbers and the tag is of course, missing. The base plate is burned from the heat cross over, but probably...

    Weird hydraulic swoosh sound

    If the PS system was not making a weird noise before, then I would have to think it's the new wheel rubbing on something at the column. It's either that or a total coincidence that the pump is now making a noise. Could be some air in the system somehow or the pump starting to go bad. Make sure...

    Can I get Opinions on Exhaust systems?

    Is your car an H or M code? You do not give a description.

    Thankfully just one of one, a Mach Z !

    It ain't a Coyote that's for sure!!

    Thankfully just one of one, a Mach Z !

    Definitely a "Custom job". Actually, just from the pics, I quite like some of the custom touches he's done, like the yellow piping on the seats, but that skull shift knob has to GO! Pity it's a 73 though, not my favorite year, but I know a lot like them.

    Can I get Opinions on Exhaust systems?

    I too stayed with manifolds which limits you to 2 1/4" pipes unless you use an adaptor for 2 1/2" or hog out the manifold openings. This is the area of restriction. Stock openings are 2' diameter. Boss manifolds are 2 1/4". Mustangtek list D1ZE-9431-BA, driver side for both 351 4V and Boss, but...

    Fender removal

    Something I just thought of that was not mentioned. Under the top bolt locations, you'll likely find shims. Make a note of them and where they are located. There is also seam sealer along the top rail. I used 3M strip caulk on mine. Don't forget there is a couple of bolts accessible with the...
