Re: 100,000 Mile Club Challenge

The '67 in my profile picture had 97,000 miles on it when I got it in 1976. When I sold it in 1989 it had well over 400,000 miles. It had cracks in the shock towers a couple inches long. The guy who bought it drove it home to Amarillo from Dallas. Yesterday I was driving my 68 through the beautiful ...

Re: Holley carburetor has the flu and won't stop vomiting fuel

You need to be sure and buy only HOLLEY brand parts. The P/N STD-542B is a Standard Parts Co part number. Chinese garbage that will make the carburetor non - functional. Honestly you need to replace both needle and seats with real Holley parts. Replacing just the O - rings is not going to end well. ...

Re: Holley carburetor has the flu and won't stop vomiting fuel

Only buy the genuine Holley version. It can be bought direct from Holley, but I generally use Jeg's or Summit Racing. They make a version suitable for use with ethanol - laced fuel. The rubber o ring on the needle assembly is bad. Happens all the time with alcohol fuel Best resource for a quality re...

Re: Determining classic cougar values

The GT package includes the S code 390-4V engine. So you for sure do not have one of those. Looks like a good solid car. 289 - 4V with no AC probably around $15K - $17K with value added by the color combination.

Re: Carburetor Fire, Fire Extinguisher, What Now?

Takes two wrenches. A 1" wrench to hold the adapter and a 7/16" wrench to loosen the B - nut on the fuel line. Crescent wrenches are too big and clumsy, you need real ones. Disconnecting the fuel lines seems to be easier said than done. I got the one on the driver side off no problem. It was a pinch...
