    Cowl Panel Repair

    I got my car about 7 years ago, and ever since I had a problem with water leaking through the dash on the passenger side. It turned out my upper cowl panel was rotted out around the heater box inlet. This is apparently a very common problem on the older mustangs, so check yours out. I bought a...

    What did you do to your car today?

    Finally figured out how the stupid clutch helper spring comes out on my 73 mach 1 and did the gymnastics to actually do it. I am more excited than I should be because I have tried 3 or 4 times over the last few months and gave up, since I couldn't position myself in way that I could see...

    What did you do to your car today?

    I just got an OTC 7311A from Amazon and it worked like a charm. Granted I already cut it up and doused it in PB but from the time the package was delivered I had it off in about 5 minutes. One good shot with my impact gun and it was off. The side to side bolts were key IMO, the cheapos from...

    What did you do to your car today?

    Did a bunch of cursing, throwing tools, busting knuckles and almost got my pitman arm off.  :atomic: I will be getting my 3rd pitman arm puller, this one has cross bolts so the stupid thing doesn't keep slipping off. I will finish cutting into it tommorow and I'll get the new tool Saturday...

    I fixed my emergency brake today

    Glad I could help, good luck! That's good info, and looks good too! I only really dusted the bare metal area with paint because I was concerned that a good coat of paint would glue up all the parts that should only take a fraction of a pound to move. I didn't really get a picture of my pedal...

    I fixed my emergency brake today

    I've owned my car for almost half my life now, and the emergency brake has never seemed to hold. I even replaced the pedal years back and it still just popped out whenever I stomped it down. It's been parked in flat garages for years, but now it is an issue because I failed inspection lol. After...

    What did you do to your car today?

    There was a good video from engine masters* on air cleaner theory.. The filter top seems to be great because the air is already traveling at a high velocity in the direction it needs to go (down into the carb throat). They ran a literal salad bowl with just a filter top and it was at the top of...

    Got my new fuel injector early and let it idle a little bit. [video=youtube]

    What did you do to your car today?

    Started it up briefly. I have a leaking fuel injector so I won't really get to run it until Wednesday.  [video=youtube]

    What did you do to your car today?

    It looks like a mess but I'm going to try to start it up tomorrow for the first time with on the new engine. Once it runs I will go back and clean up the wiring and everything else about this picture that is bothering me.

    What did you do to your car today?

    We're getting some nice weather this week so I got my fuel system together. I ran new 3/8 NiCopp hardlines from the new tanks inc. in-tank pump setup and replaced the -8 pushlock I was running all around with -6. I spent today trying to figure out the whacky setup that holds my fuel rails down...

    What did you do to your car today?

    Dropped the engine in on Saturday, ran into some issues as expected (My Sachs clutch kit came with 2 wrong pilot bearings). It's in though, have a little bit more to do and it's like 20º now so I'm not really rushing to drive it.

    I feel like there's too many nice examples in this thread to single anyone out, really enjoying it!  :coolphotos:

    Show us your engines!

    I'll probably tell people it's an olds motor for fun. That'd be a nice surprise, I hope you're right haha. My injectors will only support 500 hp though, I should be able to get an idea from the duty cycle they run at.

    Show us your engines!

    Just some bolt ons  :whistling: It shouldn't be anything special though, just a 10:1 aussie headed street-ish motor with a solid roller. Hoping to make 400 hp or so just under 7000 rpm. Thanks, I hope it works lol

    Get Mach1 into 12.5 second zone

    The math checks out  ::thumb:: What's the compression of the stockish 429? The simplest (on paper) ways would be more bang in the cylinders either by running the thinnest head gasket you can for a compression bump or getting a cheap nitrous kit. A small nitrous shot (<100 shot) is relatively...

    What did you do to your car today?

    They are 73, I have to double check that they are for a fastback but they look just like my old set.

    What did you do to your car today?

    Found some motor mounts for cheap on ebay and they turned out to be in great shape. They were being sold as 71-73 mounts so I figured the seller didn't realize they were rare. You can still see the ford logo in the rubber and they are solid. I am considering rebuilding my loose set with...

    How aggressive is this cam????

    That's pretty aggressive on the lift, and I'm not sure what lift the duration is measured at. It could potentially be extremely agressive if it's @.050 lol. You'd definitely need a good spring that doesn't go solid at that lift, and most likely some kind of vacuum pump to run power brakes. I...
