Is it pointless to use carb & choke cleaner on a new carb? I was going to use it on my 2 month old edelbrock carb but my dad says its useless on a new carb. I figured I would keep it clean. Any thoughts?
If you're talking about the spraycan carb cleaner, use it. That's what it's for. All carbs get a little staining on them. The spray stuff is ideal to keep a carb new looking. Take care to keep overspray from painted surfaces.
I have a quick question. My new to me 1965 six cylinder convertible has factory Power Steering. It has a Eaton pump, (large round removable cover with a dipstick), or at least I think it is a Eaton. Just wondering when did Ford change the pumps, I was thinking or read somewhere...
Since my car is in pieces and I’m going to rebuild the 289, I need to get some ideas on how to “dress” the engine bay. I don’t want to end up with an abomination of blue, red, yellow, black and chrome - so pop your hoods!
I’ll get it started ;)
I bought a 1965 vin# 5R07C147717 on title and door tag. Title shows it as 1964. WHY? Door tag is 65A J 26 14K 75 6 6. So it was produced On 14-OCT 1964 After July it should be 1965.
It does have some of the 64.5 features like spare tire hold down as a groove not a J hook type, Door handles...
