The Jalopy Journal
There's a guy here on the West Coast that races a Super Snipe in 24 Hours of Lemons races. His first car was as badly rusted as yours. He just...
Is the wheel a 15"?
The name your looking for is David Kee Toploader Transmissions. He has a web site and all the parts you need to put your trans together.
You should be able to sell the Mustang T10 and pick up a Galaxie one and pocket some cash. The Mustang ones seem to be worth more. I've had both...
Check David Kee transmissions online. It has charts that might help you identify it.
And I hardly think Penske killed them either.
Man, I just took a Galaxie trans to the scrapyard yesterday.
I think Atwater Mike has hit the nail on the head. There is a guy that sells the bars on eBay that accomplishes the same thing. There are also...
I heard Bobby Allison say that it was Traco that caused their reliability problems with the NASCAR Matadors.
It does have a rotor in it doesn't it. Good cap too?
Nothing like a good running FE. I just got my 427 pistons yesterday.
I haven't heard Montana or Wyoming mentioned. I have a condo in Bozeman and am always tempted to stay there rather than return to SoCal. I am...
If you went Clevor, the Aussie 2V heads might work better in your rpm range.
It isn't as much of an issue of not wanting to carry 2 sets of lugs, it's more of an issue of not wanting to mix them up and put the wrong ones on...
As a Lemons car, the whole this is only good for about 5 feet.
I don't know about Indiana, but it is illegal to add a VIN to a car in Commiefornia. What good would a title do if there is no way to link it to...
It has been windy the last couple of days. Calmer today, though.
Thanks for all the input. I thought I might actually need a 90 countersink (45+45) but I was not sure. I have to leave the Bassett wheels alone...
I have some alum wheels for an OT project. The car uses Bassett race wheels normally. They use a lug nut with a 45 degree taper. The aluminum...
The problem with alcohol in fuel is called phase separation. This is an unavoidable process. It is like the separation of oil and vinegar salad...
It looks like it has the Ford style AT kick down.
How old is the fuel pump and does it have the integral filter?
I get them to fit mine nicely with 4.5 backspaced 8 inch wide wheels. I have even had 295x50 tires on my 64.
Are they newer rebuilds with the crappy Chinese parts? If so, look for some old original bleeders.
Black with white top. Maybe guardsman blue with white top.
Man that BBM block is purdy.
Another quick way to tell the FE trans is the 3 bolt starter flange.
Did you take any pictures?
Is the tank vented? I was killing pumps on an OT car until I realized the evap system had been removed and the car had a non-vented fuel cap.
