Re: '67 390 GT advance timing

A quick google search I found some info on setting/changing total advance: http://www.bob2000.com/dist.htm https://www.fordmuscle.com/archives/2000/03/timing/ Like Royce said with 35 degrees total advance initial may be 6 degrees. To get back to 12 initial/35 total you would have to change the advan...

Re: Should this be restored or replaced

74 date casting number so I would just replace it. It is not original to your 69.I think the casting # should be C9AE-8505-A. You could try to pick up a rebuilt unit at the parts store with the correct number and possible date code if the parts guy lets you look at all the pumps they stock for a 390...

Re: Eliminators on the Market (August 2018)

Legit eliminator?
Looks like it - camera case dash, warning light block off plate, comfort weave highback seats, and it looks like a 69 rear spoiler.

Re: H-Pipe Exhaust Question

Like Bill said I think they make two different H-pipes, one to use with the spacer and one without it.

Re: To be honest, Santa has sent 2 Boxes ....

This is just a observation/question because I don't know - does this carb have a A/T kick down linkage? It looks like it does. Should it? I thought a 68 kick down operated off the gas pedal so it would not have it on the carb.
Looks great by the way!

Re: IS it Spring ( rate ) time yet ???

The nice thing about tubular upper front control arms is you can usually lower the pickup point 1 3/4" I think to get the best geometry without using angled ball joint spacers. (1" is the usual "Shelby drop "with stock UCA's)

Re: 390 motor pics from a 69 needed

There is a S code mustang registry here: http://www.scoderegistry.com/ You can probably search for engine shots for a 69,Mustang and Cougar should look similar. Another option is the concourse mustang forum. http://www.concoursmustang.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=3e28f70b907e58d0ca822548d297b1c8& M...

Re: Prototype Boss Bronco found (There's still hope for the Eliminator prototype.)

I have the Kar-Kraft book but haven't had time to finish reading it. I checked last night, it has four pages about the Boss9 Cougars and a few paragraphs about the Trans-am Cougars.
