    Another new part bad out of the box

    The starter on my 1969 Cougar decided to go bad sitting in the driveway. Searched over a dozen parts stores near me. I finally found one for a standard shift about 10 miles away. I got out the jack stands and floor jack, something I am loath to do these days, and installed the new starter. Still...

    HID headlight upgrade for F-250

    I want to upgrade the halogen headlights on my 2002 F-250 Lariat. There a lot of no-name companies selling products that have poor beam width and other problems. Has any one done a conversion, on any vehicle, with great results? If so, what products did you use? All input will be appreciated. Chuck

    Shocks for 2002 F-250 Ford truck

    My truck has 161,000 miles on it and it still the best vehicle I've ever owned. However I'm considering replacing the shocks. None are leaking but the ride seems harsher than it used to be and 161,000 miles seems like a lot for shock absorbers. I'm considering the Bilstein 4600 series but I'd...

    Cost of car parts

    I haven't been in the market for car parts for about 3 years. I went looking for a SBF Dart block and was a bit amazed to find it now costs over a $1000.00 more than it did 3 years ago. I know inflation is spiking but that seems outrageous to me. Is it just shortages causing suppliers to gouge...

    I my have found someone who can make a 4300D work right

    I accidentally found a guy who says he can make a a Motorcraft 4300D work properly. That is the potentially good news. The not so good news is, he only does complete restorations. Cost is $695 + $45 return shipping. He has been in business for 50+ years. He said he does 2 or 3 4300Ds a year and...

    old drag car

    I found this old picture from circa 1995. It was considered pretty fast back then, 9.20 @ 148 mph and went straight as a string. Moving from a mid 12 second car to this was a bit nerve wracking the first few full power launches. It had a 514 CID Ford,GM Glide, and a Dana 60 differential. I sold...

    My old 1972 R code

    I was looking through some old folders and found a picture of the R code. If you look closely you may be able to see that I was running drag slicks on it for street "enthusiastic" use. The car ran 12.70 @ 110 MPH. Another car that I wish I had back. Chuck
