Re: Source for replacement gauge cluster housing?

I love Critter Creek's work, but most of their restored parts cost more than what I paid for my entire car. It's hard to justify that spend.

Does anyone have a reference on what getting it re-chromed costs?

Re: WCCC Photo Contest 2019

I keep explaining to my wife that it's only going to take about $10,000 in paint and body work to finally get us a free calendar. She's not following my logic.

Re: Ball joint questions and differences in control arms on 67

Well, still waiting on my second lower control arm to show up, but I installed a 1" sway bar with poly bushings. Wow, what a difference. I can't wait to see how it all feels with the roller perches and Shelby drop.

Re: Thermostat housing leak

Had to do mine twice last time. I resorted to black RTV and let it dry at least an hour before putting fluids back in the system.

Don't connect both sides using a T into the back of the carb- it won't work. The PCV system needs to have vacuum on one side be open on the other. If both side suck,you'll end up pulling oil into your intake.
I'm glad I asked. Thank you.

Re: PCV question

Is it a problem to have the nipple inside the air filter? If not, then I can just drill a hole in the base of the chrome holley cleaner housing and add one. I guess I was thinking you wanted it outside the filter itself in case there was an oil burp or something.

Re: New radio wiring?

For constant power I ran a ring terminal to the post on the back of my cigarette lighter. For switched power I ran a ring terminal to the post of the back of my ignition switch. For ground I just connected it to the radio bracket, which grounds into the dash itself.

PCV question

I've got the factory valve covers on my 302. There's a PCV connection on the passenger side that runs into the back base of the carburetor. On the driver side there's a PCV valve on the oil filler cap with a hose that I assume used to go to the factory air cleaner but now just lays on top of the val...

Re: Ball joint questions and differences in control arms on 67

It lists the stock 289 bar as 3/4" on the WCCC site. I'll try to measure what I really have tonight.

My local shop only had one 67 lower control arm in stock, so when I go to pick up the second one maybe I'll grab this as well.
