Re: Brake lights swapping when signaling - 61 Galaxie

Your turn signal switch is the culprit. The same wire is used from the column to the bulb for both brake and turn. The 63 Bird column I installed in my 57 Ranchero had the very same issue. It is a...

Re: 55 Ford Data Plate mounting???

Of the several I have rebuilt I found the "rivets" appeared to have been set with a center punch type of tool. All four cars have a dimple in the middle of the dome. As a result I have used a...

Re: Pressurizing Rocker Shafts

Are you pulling the heads during this rocker shaft rebuild? With stock springs, a relatively hot cam you should get years of service from the stock set up.

Re: 66 mustang

What he said! You can build a new Mustang from the ground up with all the stuff available! Someone can correct me if I'm in error....I believe the only panels not available are the roof panels.

Re: 58 Edsel engine

A bullet proof set up is take a 390 FT crank, turn down the snout to passenger car specs and you now have a forged crank for the FE series. Add a 428 block and you now have a 406 that will take a...

Re: 58 Edsel engine

The truck FE was first used in 63, 292 Y-block and 223 6 banger until then? 58/59 Fords had the 332 & 352, not sure when the 360 in trucks came around. My 73 F100 was bought new with the 360.

Re: 1967 Mustang rear end gear ratio

Automatic or manual? I'm a 3.55 with a 1993 or earlier AOD. Visit the yards for an Explorer/Ranger 8.8. The 3.73s in the Explorer were T-locks, the Ranger (V-6s only) 8.8 will be a 3.23 or 3.55...

Re: Powermaster PowerGen

Ford 2G and 3G. The "fire issue" with 2G is corrected with the new after market wiring/connector available. Put out great voltage at idle to run A/C and a cooling fan if used.
