  1. Cam recommendation for Paxton S/C and hipo 289 automatic

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I have loved my C7FE le mans cam with standard transmission, bu I doubt the levels of vacuum would work well with a C4 hipo automatic. I was pleased with the hydraulic hipo cam profile with my cruiser automatics, bu missed the seriousness of the Le Mans. What has been the group's experience...
  2. Vintage Mustangs, Parts, and events in Print

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Over the years, I've been dismayed by losing collections of images and information found later to be invaluable to others, or at the very least discussion. As I re- and un- cover vintage Mustang items of interest I'll share here. I suggest if one wants to discuss, quote the message in a new...

  4. Thoughts on showing not-so concours cars

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    The point I think that is lost is, "what they were, when they were." And defining that. Not open ended modification to showcar of the latest and greatest thrill.

  6. Thoughts on showing not-so concours cars

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I posted this in the Concours forum, recognizing as keepers of time capsules, their buy-in to an idea is critical. Let's face it, that well from which concours and survivor cars are drawn is rapidly going dry, significantly for vintage cars. A discussion about color changes on a SAAC concours...

  10. Aluminum Valve Covers

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Has anyone tried using metal spray to get a OEM look to a cast aluminum product such as a intake or valve covers? Do they even still do that kind of thing?
  11. WTB Early S2MS 289 Intake with rectangular COBRA nameplate

    Classic Mustang Wanted Ads
    From this recently compiled descriptions of iterations of intakes versus VIN, I believe I need a S2MS-9424-A intake where the COBRA nameplate was cast as a full rectangle (where-as most have clipped the 'A' for increased distributor clearance).
  12. Tach wiring

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Is this a factory tach or aftermarket? They connect differently.
  13. Torque Box Gussets

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    the torque boxes' origin was in the convertible frame design. They do nothing but help with the distribution of stress from the front frame rails to the outer rockers. As Martha said... Its a good thing
  14. Damage if your exhaust is too restrictive?

    Mod and Custom Forum
    I don't think you'd experience any real damage to the engine by running the smaller exhaust for a while. Long term you'll likely experience the engine loading up on fuel, excessive unburned fuel, with a remote chance of washing the rings (gas in oil, excessive wear, etc)... but all that's long...
  15. Input shaft ripped off my 4 speed toploader...what trans options do I have

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I've experienced a tailshaft housing failure due to a driveshaft being too short-- the yoke didn't have the rear bushing supporting the middle of the splines, just one end. That lead to the rear bushing wearing out (evidenced by severe vibrations in the tranny and shifter). As the bushing wore...
  16. HELP with early hipo motor mount direction

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I need help on which side is correct when putting the motor mounts on the engine. One way biases the mounting stud to the front of the motor. naturally when put on the opposite the stud is biased to the rear. WHICH way is correct with these motor mounts?
  17. Mustang Speedo Problem

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I take this back, believe the 17 tooth would indicate too slow. A 15tooth gear, if compatible with the main gear, would indicate faster
  18. Mustang Speedo Problem

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    as 31 mph = 50 kph it's not too far off. If you replaced the gear with a 17 tooth as used before it would be more accurate (that is assuming it's reading about 28 mph now)
  19. Texas Hill Country Drive April 8th

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I'd love to make it, but There is a get-together of the (Shelby) Texas Nationals group in Mason that day; It's our 40th anniversary... hmmm. could have made for a great event overlap
