Re: Car at auction

I'll go out on a limb and since it's a hyped up TV auction house, it'll bring something stupid crazy over what realistic value should be. TV car auctions are so dumb I can't bring myself to watch...

Re: king pin replace

As the other folks said, just replace the king pins and the bushings in the spindles. When the new bushings are pressed in, hone them to fit the pin.

The original spindles will be better quality...

Re: 1967 Mustang rear end gear ratio

C4 automatic/289.

I will add that I have a 1974, 351w that I'd like to build and replace the 289. I'd also like to eventually go with the AOD transmission.

1967 Mustang rear end gear ratio

I have a '67 Mustang with a terrible 2.79 rear end gear ratio. I'm thinking about changing it up and was curious as to what ratio you guys thought would be good for the street and have the ability to...

Re: What Gasoline that has NO ethanol in it?

Because they know it's better gas and recreational folks want it. Like diesel it should cost less to make but they charge more. It takes more energy and cost more to produce 1 gallon of ethanol gas...

Re: 1938 Ford Pickup wheels/tires

Another thing to consider is the condition of the wheels. Are they nice and smooth or pitted slightly? Does it look like the bead will seal and hold air? I have a '39 pickup. I'm running the radial...

Re: Pat McFarlane RIP

I got to know Pat from EFV8 Club national meets. He was a nice guy. He was a familiar face at every V8 meet I attended.

Re: 1936 ford pickup

Congratulations. You'll enjoy that truck. You don't find old Fords like that where I live. I'd be excited too.

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

You choose wisely. I encourage you to continue to look for a 46-48 Ford. You'll find one that is ready to drive for a good price. The market is soft and these 46-48 fords are affordable to get into...

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

Bare with me here. I would pick it up for $1500.00. Then I would part it out. I would then take my proceeds and purchase a '47 sedan in a little better shape. I think the proceeds from selling the...

Re: Vapor lock or not ?

Make sure your ignition system is operating at 100% efficiency. A weak coil, bad wires, a distributor that needs rebuilt or timed can cause you a lot of starting problems.

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

No. Side shift transmissions are very easy to come by. I have several lying around.

Re: Anyone own a 1966-1967 Fairlane 500?

Nice looking Fairlanes. I don't know why but the 2 door hardtops appeal to me. I've never driven one but I can imagine a 390/4 speed car would be wild.
