Re: '69 351W Pulley Question (Running Out of Options)

I see you tested the sender but you need to find an original Ford sender. Like the repop fuel senders the linearity of the resistance is usually off at one resistance end (gas gauge shows lower than it is). If a Ford sensor doesn't solve it put in a high volume water pump. Is the fan about 1 inch f...

Re: 1969 428 Vin code q&a

I also don't see the big battery group on the Marty report your site claim's must be part of a 428 ( group 27F). Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Re: 1969 428 Vin code q&a

2 VINs on the car: driver's side inner fender (looks like your pic) & a tag on the DS dash, readable through the windshield. Original engine & trans would most likely have the unit # stamped on them. Other stampings on these cars are part#s and date codes. What does the seller say about the discrepa...

Re: Pricing advice

Hah so true. I'd be lying if I said that hasen't already crossed my mind. Maybe just resign yourself to it. ;) Look at it this way: if you put $4-5k in it to have a roadworthy car, you'd have a very cool classic for pretty short money. With proper use/care/storage, your asset appreciates as you enj...

My son will be taking a "learn to ride" dirt bike class at the end of the month. If he enjoys it, I may part ways with the Cougar for a couple of dirt bikes.
Having something that you & your kids enjoy doing together is priceless.

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Looking good Andrew! Congrats on getting this far. As the years go on, you won't regret doing the body/paint work the "right way", which takes time & good materials: no way around it.

Re: Pricing advice

I'm going to go ahead and guess that you'll drop $3-4K with your mechanic to get this running/driving, assuming no major problems.

Re: Pricing advice

Keep any original parts you take off, and rebuild the factory parts wherever possible (like the fuel pump, calipers, radiator, etc). Be prepared for the trans to leak under pressure after sitting 13 yrs, probably the rear main seal too.

Very nicely done!

Usually I'm not the type of guy who complains about certain donor cars being used for the betterment of projects. But I have a huge soft spot for 87 and 88 T-Birds. ;)
Takes a real man to cut one up, eh? :lol: 8-) :pimp:
