Re: Vlaue of a 390

I'm with Jim. Did plenty of FE intake manifolds while like Jim I was young and dumb. Picked up a 61 Starliner recently with a 406 3x2 aluminum manifold on it. Used a engine hoist this time for...

Re: Autolite 1100 replacement for 1964 170 I6

I agree that the Autolite 1100 is a good carb. If I recall they used to have a problem with the accelerator pump circuit. When you went through them there was a plug you had to remove to clean out...

Re: '65 T-Bird fuel pump

Re: Front end alignment

Thanks for posting your alignment specs, that's what I was looking for. I was thinking along the lines of 2 degrees positive caster, 0-1/2 degree negative camber with 1/8in toe-in. Not far from stock...

Front end alignment

Need to get my 61 Starliner's front end aligned. What specs are being used outside of the stock alignment. I have radials on it so I know I can increase the caster over the factory spec. Mainly...

Re: Need help planning a site-seeing trip to Detroit

Re: spark plugs

I'll go along with BF82, BRF82 and BSF82. That's what Ford went with when they switched to Motorcraft.
