Are the bell houSing the same on the 67 c4 and 3.03?
So that would be a no
my c-4 is a 1968.
You have any documentation on that? I don't doubt you, it's just something I've always wondered about and I collect that kind of thing for future reference.
Just the word of a line worker at the San Jose/Milpitas assembly plant.
MY Ranchero was built in San Jose!!!!!!! Awesome!
My Falcon was built there too. It got really far (50 miles).
Is it possible to use the oem air cleaner with a Weber 32/36?
Yes, if you trim it.
What gimpy said. Although I'm pretty sure clasicinlines.com has a round filter base that fits the 32/36. At the very least it would be easy to cut a round hole in your base and weld in their base to yours.
Except that it would not be a round hole. It's a diamond-shaped hole.
Why not cut that diamond hole into the bottom of the air cleaner?
Here's the one I was thinking of. Definitely not the same size at the stock air cleaner base but a hole cut in the stock base and and you wouldn't even need to weld it just hold it down with the center stud.
Nope. ClassicInlines.com is a zombie website. The owner died, and they are out-of-business.
If you want that, you will have to look elsewhere.
I just took a gasket, centered it over the original round hole, traced it, and then trimmed out the excess with snips.
Really? I just bought my distributor kit, and weber carb kit like a year ago. That's crazy.
That it does.

Hi OGM.Thanks for the hot link to Does 10`s.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
Just curious what is the widest tire that anyone is running without any mods on the rear of they're 64-65 Falcons? Currently I have 15's in the front (Runners) and a 215/70/14 in the rear on my 64. I've noticed with a shorter tire (Original 195/75/14's) my gears really woke up. Have plans to move up to 3.55's in a month or so, and then probably switch to 15x7's on the rear after the install. Just wanted to run a wider tire on the 14's for the time being.
I'm running 215/65/15 on a 15x7 wheel.
I'm putting the front end suspension back together on my 61. I'm using 65 Mustang arms and I've a few questions.
1. Which hole do I elongate on the strut rod?
2. Do I use the original steering stop? 3. If so, Which hole do I elongate on the steering stop?
4. Should I use a steering stop from a 63?
5.Can I switch to a 63 strut rod?
1. Both, equally.
2. You can, but you would have to elongate those holes, same way.
3. Same as above.
4. It would save you slotting effort and time.
5. No, and even if you could, you shouldn't. Your current strut rods are adjustable. Later ones are not.
6. Do a Shelby Drop while you are interested n there. Google it. It's almost free.
7. If you have the scratch, install lower control arm adjusters. Then you can get a performance alignment, instead of an old lady car alignment.
8. I forgot what 8 was for.
9. A 1" anti-sway bar that was supposed to be for a '65 Mustang.
You won't believe it's the same car.
I read somewhere that the 63 were adjustable.
I did the drop.
I'll check the LCA adjuster thing out.
8. Your guess is as good as mine.
I found out tonight on ttfn. That the early perches were greaseable bronze bushings. I guess I'll be taking off the aftermarket one and cleaning up the old one .
