Re: Ring Brothers Newest Build / 1967 Cougar xr7

That's cool to hear. I've only heard nice things about the Ring Brothers too.

I just read about this device in my Goodguys Magazine yesterday. It sounded like something worth checking out.

No belt jumping whatsoever. The tensioner keeps everything tight no matter the RPM.

Re: Serpentine Belt Conversion?

There aren't many, if any, others on here who do mods like these. Most like to stay closer to stock. So I don't know how many other responses you're likely to receive. Good Luck regardless.

Re: Serpentine Belt Conversion?

Haven't researched the aftermarket much on these. But I retrofitted a factory set-up from a Fox-T-Bird to my 351W. But I also have AC and Power Steering.

Beware, you might need a reverse rotation water pump depending on what direction the belt spins the pump. The stock set-up are reverse rotation.

Re: Installing Speaker Pods

I yanked it close to 18 years ago. So I can't recall how difficult it was. But I don't thi...

Re: Tire size

Nice going IKE!

Bad advice to recommend 17" wheels when the original poster never asked for recommendations for 17s and already purchased 15s. Not everybody wishes to upsize beyond 14s or 15s, and nowwhere does it say they're brand new and can be returned.

Re: Tire size

I would consider the 17" offerings if they come in your choice of rim. There isn't much available rubber wise anymore. I put my 15 X 7 away and went 17X7 and 17X8 respectively.
