Re: Thermistor testing? Bill B.

The low fuel light on the Waco Eliminator still works like it is supposed to.

Is the smoky gas corrosive ? Carbon dioxide and Halon are non corrosive and leave residue. I bet you will find this product is made in China.
Web site states that it is Potassium Nitrate based and non corrosive. Also, that it is made in Italy.

Re: Carburetor Fire, Fire Extinguisher, What Now?

As Steve stated in post # 5 that is the guage feed harness for the coil, oil pressure sender and water temperature sender. It connects at the back of the block and is relatively easy to replace.

I ran the 351 70 D0OE heads on my 1968 289 coupe in high school. Ford offered a special bolt which the called anti-brinelling. The rockers would be correct on small block but a 289 HIPO and a Boss 302. The pushrod guides are with cast as slots as part of the pushrod hole though the head on 289 HIPO...

Re: Boss 429 Cougars - Production Vehicle, or not?

The BOSS 429 Mustangs were definitely production vehicles. The two BOSS 429 Cougars that were built may or may not be. My reason for thinking that is only because the engine code "Z" was not applied to the Cougars. They were delivered as "R" codes to the two lessees, with the intent of them to be re...

Frank rarely comes on here anymore. His current username is Frank Bowers. He was the Eliminator Registrar before me. I speak to him on a somewhat regular basis.

The transmission would be placed in a rack probably loading from the bottom up. From there that would have been loaded onto a transport (trailer ...
