Re: New Walking Cat Rubber Floor Mats

Typically to get a factory to run parts they need to run enough parts to cover the time it takes to set everything up and then tear it all down to run the next product. The way the world works right now favors large runs. For most parts i reproduce you have to run 500 to 800 parts at a bare minimum.

Re: The October 2018 Ride of the Month is Wayne Brander's '68 XR7-G

Wayne did a great job getting pics and info to me. There is no comparison between the car magazines of the 60's and 70's and the stuff they put out today. There were some incredible writers. You really got to know them so when they wrote a review you could understand it in a way that is completely l...

Re: 70 351C-4V Traction Improvement

You need a limited slip differential. That will solve the problem and be more fun when you do spin a tire.

Re: Fuel Level Sending Unit

I interviewed a service writer that worked at a Ford dealership when the Thunderbird came out with with this feature.

Re: The October 2018 Ride of the Month is Wayne Brander's '68 XR7-G

Great car - love it! My G also has the 3:00 Traction-Lok which is called out as an Equa-Lock on my Marti. I just recently learned from Royce that if you ordered the 390 4v with a locking rear-end you got the Traction-Lok. - Phillip My understanding is that there were two versions of the 3L00, 3L25 ...

Re: Fuel Level Sending Unit

I should add that Bob's ELFI works even better than replacing the thermistor.
