Re: Gas Sending Unit

Have you tried calibrating the fuel link. I believe it has half a dozen presets. Try calling classic instruments.

Re: Muffler Selection

JMO but only thing back in the day that I knew of was glasspacks or stock. Loved the full throttle crackle of a glasspack. Think it had a lot to do with the small pipes back then. Whether you had...

Re: The Defiant One.....at the transmission shop

I've had redi strip do some amazing things to rusty stuff, at least it was to me. But the time I took parts in turn around was months and I wasn't in a hurry then. Would there have been anything...

Re: UPS loses Package !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some of the stories here I can believe now what happened to the camera I paid for from Amazon. UPS showed steady tracking from 1 depot to another until last step that would transfer it to my PO. Had...

Re: 64 Galaxie Muffler explosion

Same thing happened to me. Was aftermarket electronic ignition failing. I swear car raised up a foot. 1st instinct is always pump the gas and loads up the muffler.

Re: 2004 f150 4x4 transmission

Here I have a shop with great reputation. It's not a chain and small town. I would try to find something like ours. Lot of electronics in newer trans. May be something simple.

Re: Transmission, 1955 Victoria

Don't know much about transmissions in general but I remember something about the cruisomatics could crack the center support in the case. Whoever told me said it was from not having reverse band...

Re: Jessi Combs

Sad, used to enjoy watching her on trucks and something else. She would get the work done while the guys messed around.

Re: Risk of using old (over 10 years) tires

Old cars are already on all the environmentalists lists. About the time someone makes a school bus swerve and tip over and they trace it back to old tires gives them more fuel for the fires. I have...

Re: Risk of using old (over 10 years) tires

Re: Oil cooler for C6 transmission

They are usually rated for the amount of weight your transmission is going to pull. If you go with the stacked plate type they are kind of self regulating. Ford has used this type for years. Bigger...

Re: 50 custom

Some oil in cylinders first, crank by hand. I wouldn't think a little 2 cycle mix in the gas would hurt for extra lube. Started Grandmothers car that had been setting for years inside, was good cared...

Re: A/C in 68 Mustang

I don't believe Ford ever put AC in a car without a fan shroud. Many of the aftermarket fitters of the day would skip that part. Unibody Fords of that age didn't have much room for air to get out of...
