Re: More meat in the rear!

I could be wrong but I know a guy who got a set of springs re arced and I'm not a fan. Seems like he got the ride height back but the spring has no strength left. For the price of springs I would buy new ones. Just for the record I'm running a 275/60/15 on my 69 but replaced my cracked springs first.

Re: Faster than a speeding ticket?

In BC Canada 40km over the speed limit (25mph?) Gets your car impounded and licence suspended alomg eith other fines. So doing 85 mph in a 60 mph zone could get you in major trouble

Re: tranny swap auto - standard

Not in a cougar. My brother has a tko 600 in his ventura (chevy nova twin) and it needed minor tunnel modification. My other brother went t56 in a 64 lemans and it is significantly bigger. It is a very large transmission and after seeing his I personally wouldn't envy anyone trying to fit it in a co...

Re: Car stalls when I put the car in drive

Does the carb have a choke? And does it do it before it is warmed up or always?
