  1. new to mustang, needs some lowering help

    Mod and Custom Forum
    What I did was cut a coil, or coil and a half (can't remember it's been so long) off the stock front coil springs. I used a metal cutting blade with a circular saw to do this. That dropped the front down about 1 - 1.5". This gave me some negative camber but I aligned it in auto-shop (I was in...
  2. what to do about my new engine?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Take a painful lesson from me and check your valvespings carefully... I had the same problem you are describing. I tried it all.. vacuum leak checks, valve adjustments, replaced a couple hydraulic lifters I thought were bad, re-sealed the intake, different PCV valves... nothing worked.. Long...
  3. Clutch Cable Conversion

    Mod and Custom Forum
    I bought the Maximum Motorsports universal cable for my T5 clutch cable setup, specifically because it is approx 8-10 inches longer than the stock cable and I will have long tubes on the car. I have also read about it being one of the smoothest operating cables. I took an aftermarket aluminum...
  4. Need help with wheel spacers

    Mod and Custom Forum
    Cool, sounds like you are good to go Canted! Sorry, I didn't mean to confuse things... I meant to say with the 1.25" that my tires rubbed on the inside fender lips. Can't wait to see the pics!

  6. Need help with wheel spacers

    Mod and Custom Forum
    Also, I forgot to mention, a little fun fact about running wheel adapters is employees at places like Discount Tire will not work on your car, and also will treat you as if you were lower than a human being/the anti-christ because you run them. Be prepared to carry your wheels/tires through the...
  7. Need help with wheel spacers

    Mod and Custom Forum
    I went with 1" spacers all around on my car. I can't remember the backspacing details because I did this so long ago, but if you look up 2001 GT wheel backspacing and such you would be able to tell if the dimensions of my wheels match yours... and maybe it would be helpful. I first ordered and...
  8. Old tires dangerous?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    This is the nice thing about buying tires from a tire specialty shop, such as Discount Tire. Since tires is all they do, their inventory moves so fast it doesn't have time to sit and age. It sucks because I drive all my cars so little I end up replacing tires more because of dry rot than...
  9. Need Slumlord Advice Please

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    My wife and I live in a 1930's rental home in Tucson, AZ. For the past few years, there have been ceiling leakage issues during heavy rains where enough water has come in to have to remove all contents of the affected room into the next room and get towels and buckets out to manage the water...

  13. ~400hp 289 or new motor?

    Mod and Custom Forum
    Frdnut, even without your post the stats alone of your car in your signature tell me that you know all about what I'm referring to above. And I bet that 408 of yours absolutely screams with that CI cam! Very nice car and combo!
  14. Elect. fan help?

    Mod and Custom Forum
    Hi, Im running this fan on my car, along with a 3g. I just wired in the high speed side of the fan since in AZ I really don't need to mess around with low speed for anything. I used a couple of heavy duty Bosch relays wired into a thermostatic variable switch. It kicks on when needed, and...
  15. ~400hp 289 or new motor?

    Mod and Custom Forum
    I don't believe anyone has mentioned yet that a 347 is going to have significantly less rotating mass and the engine will rev quicker than a 351W will, due to the huge mains in the windsor and all that extra mass. Just based on the physics involved, it will take a much bigger windsor than a 351...
  16. Show me your yellow cars !!!

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I'll come out of lurking for this one :drunkies: My can of touch-up paint that I got with the car said "Yuma Yellow" on the can. It looks a little bit darker in the photo right below than it really is, but the sig pic looks about right. http://members.cox.net/sk8token/14_1.jpg
  17. OK, flame away--Buying Kumho tires.

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    I have Kuhmo's up front on my car. Take-offs from a Corvette.
  18. 69 or 70 Sportsroof

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I definitely love the cleaner, more modern, and more agressive look to the 70. The 69 looks too classic for me, almost like it's just a bloated 67-68. I think the outer headlights are sunk too far back in the nose and too small... makes the front end look really big and pointy and like it...
  19. Pros & cons 331 vs. 347 stroker

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    I'm curious, did you have slicks or drag radials on when that C4 gave up, or did the trans give out during street tire useage? Thanks.
  20. Pros & cons 331 vs. 347 stroker

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    I can't speak from personal experience, meaning I haven't built both and directly compared them, but from what I have read from some of the most knowledgeable Ford builders out there, the ONLY reasons to build a 331 vs. a 347 is if you are restricted by some class rules for the racing you are...
