Re: Radiator Identification

Brian, Don't take my word for it. Do any amount of research that you feel appropriate. Everything I can see says I am correct. You should be able to get the original Ford blueprint with a phone call. I know I can, but I hate to use that ability for something I already know the answer to. Think your ...

Re: Radiator Identification

Brian, The correct radiator for a Dearborn built 390 automatic Mustang or Cougar would be a Modene C8ZE-M1 or M2. A C9ZE radiator is not correct for a big block. This is off my 69 390 auto which would have the same 24" three core. C9ZE-AF1 the 1 can change with different revision levels. 9DA date co...

Re: What do you guys think of this one?

Under hood and under body looks like a clean DSO 53 car. Deck lid may have come from the east coast. Might be good, you need to pull the trunk mat and carpet and back seat to know.

Re: Detailing the Engine Compartment.

Forgot to say the thermostat housing is wrong too. Correct thermostat housing and coil bracket in this picture. Warning - coil is an Accel oil filled unit that can take my MSD 6AL feeding it.

Re: Date codes on Holley List 4088 carbs

At the time GT-E's were being made in Dearborn Michigan. I think most if not all Holley carburetors were being made in Pennsylvania. Would it have been possible to make a carburetor during the third week of March and get it to Dearborn in time to be used on the assembly line?

Re: Detailing the Engine Compartment.

Shocks were semi gloss black. Master cylinder cover was zinc plated. PS pump was black if it is a TRW pump, metallic teal blue if a Ford pump. Oil cap is reproduced by Scott Drake, it has a metal elbow to connect to the air cleaner base. Windshield washer TEE fitting is incorrect too. Coil bracket i...

Re: quest for a 427 for my 68 GT-E

Exhaust manifolds for the GT-E 427 are cheap and easy to find because they are the same as 390GT or 390-2V X code in Mustang / Cougar / Comet / Fairlane from 1967 - 69. You can find them for $200 - $300 on eBay. If i buy Don's heads how difficult will it be to get a set of 14 hole exhaust manifolds ...

Re: Speedometer gears.

For 3.91 I think you need a gear reducer to be accurate. The red gear is as close as you can get without a reducer. It will read 5 MPH faster than you are moving approximately.

The original Fomoco gear for 3.70 rear axle ratio with 7.75 X 14 tires and automatic transmission in a Galaxie is the red, 21 tooth gear.
