    Installed some 'locking' bolts on my valve covers

    I've used these on my headers and they work great so I decided to give them a try on my valve covers. I replaced the gaskets and cleaned them up and then installed these 'stage 8' locking valve cover bolts. https://www.stage8.com/product/8960b-valve-cover-bolt-kit-16-bolts/ Basically you...

    Dash Cam catches one of our mustangs losing a wheel

    It guess it was in South East Orlando Florida.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kw2s3gbPopo&t=103s It's part of a montage of videos but I believe it will start at the Mustang losing its rear wheel.   Ouch!

    Seem to have lost the 'last visit' button

    I don't recall exactly what it said.  It was icluded in the 'open buddy list', 'content menu' and 'View Unread posts' group.  I think it was 'post since last visit' or something like that.   You had to be logged it to see it.

    spark plug wire separators suggestions?

    What have you had success with?  351C.  I have tried the clip on ones but they tend to twist a bit.  I see severall different 'clamp' down versions.  Even some using aluminum, which to me would defeat the purpose.

    I just noticed the change in the home page

    It's a great idea!  I try to say hi and welcome each new member but sometimes miss someone.    Also now I don't have to 'hover' to see if I have already posted.  Big thumbs up for whomever came up with this idea!

    So how much rake do you have? I put a level on the passenger rocker, right at the 'Ford'. Rear of the car is to the left. Take a picture of yours and let's all compare.

    MSD Distributor options

    My engine specs are in my sig. I run a mallory unilite now. It works okay but the springs to adjust the timing curve are no longer available and sometimes it acts up a bit. I am limited to small cap distributors because of my carb setup. No FI or Computer controls on the car. Vacuum advance...

    I am looking at pulling the engine. I have 4v hooker comps. I am going to leave the tranny in the car. Has anyone tried pulling the engine with the headers attached? I haven't crawed under it to see what I am up against. Historically I had the super comp headers and I didn't see a way of...

    Speed Bleeders for your brakes

    My Master Cyl was leaking so I knew I was going to have to bleed the brakes. I picked up some of the Russell speed bleeders. I bought them on amazon. I am very happy with how they work. Not only was it much easier to bleed the brakes I can't remember ever having such a tight pedal before...

    What are your thoughts on chaining the cleveland

    Has anyone tried to add some type of chain or something to keep their Cleveland from torquing in the engine bay? Perhaps I have broken a motor mount. But if that is the case it just means if I replace it I will break the next one too. I known when I really get on it my engine is rotating. I...

    New fuel level sender... new problem

    I put in a new fuel level sender. It took me longer than it should have. I thought I had less gas in the tank than I did but, since my old sender wasn't working, I guessed wrong. Anyways. I get the new sender in and fired the car up. Idles fine. I add the gas I took out (about 3 gallons)...

    what is wrong with us?

    So the thread on old tires got me thinking I should look at replacing mine. But I have 14" rims and they are pretty old and I want to get new rims and tires. Maybe 17" or 18" so I can fit in disc in the back and bigger disc up front. But if I am going to upgrade my brakes I need to make sure...
