Re: Re: 68 Rusto-Cat-Restoration - New Wheels & Tires Questions??

This is a pretty specific issue. It would really take some one with the exact set up you have to give you good information. I hope that happens but it is probably unlikely. The good news is that it sounds like a 12mm spacer can fix the problem if there is one.

Re: How to break in to my own car - door not unlatching

On '67 and '68 there is a well known problem with the lock rod being too tight causing this problem. It is covered in the factory service manual at lest for 1968.

Re: Are suspension upgrades worth the cost?

Very few people have driven a Cougar that has a fully functional front suspension and steering system. When you drive a car with just one thing wrong: bad rag joint or a loose idler arm, you get the wrong impression about the stock system. It seems that every Cougar I take apart has an issue or two ...

Re: Mustang Unlimited HUGE sale (GOB)

Closing a business is traumatic. It is like a funeral that goes on for months or even years. Every one seems to turn on each other. I am amazed it is going as well as it is. Catvert68 has it exactly right.

Re: Another "Phase 1" project

To embed a you tube video use the YouTube link on the editing bar and paste in the last part after the = sign: IKd-gj0QSrw in this case.

This is just the coolest thing ever! Will you reveal the secret?

Be sure to add a fuse or circuit breaker to that wire.

Vote for the December 2019 Ride of the Month!

No turkeys in this bunch of nominees... sorry about that but as I write this highly intoxicating turkey aroma has filled the house and only sharp knives are keeping me from stealing a bite. So, to take our minds away from the Thanksgiving feast and the joy of left-over goodness, lets pick the next R...

Re: 1969 XR7 Converible

How much did you shave off the CJ heads when you put them on the 390? I have heard some people use the steel very thin head gaskets instead of milling the heads but compression is still a bit low.
