Re: New Leaf Springs too Short?

I take it you have not mounted the rear axle housing yet ? That would mess things up, most of the time just lift the springs up and slide the shackles in , so you might have the wrong springs.

Re: 351C-4V very low vacuum...

Timing it at 12 degrees is a good starting point depending on the tune of the motor.

Re: Marti report

I just did an elite report on a 1969 mercury cyclone got the basic in 2 days, the rest of it could take 4 months.

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

If you do a kit look at these, super heavy duty and use bearings instead of bushings, plus a hinged strut rod.

Re: 390 running hot...

Get your timing settled in and if still running warm , we need to speed up the waterpump with a smaller pulley. But 1 train wreck at a time.

Re: generic rear sway bar end links?

But isn't a cougar sway bar end link different from a 70 mustang?

First thing I would change out is the ignition coil.

Re: Let Play how bad is my suspension 1967 version

My guess is your springs are shot, putting stock replacement will get you close to where you need to be. If need be you might lower the front with lowering springs to help your stance.
