Re: In take manifold question

I had one of these on my J code 68 G for a while with an oval Cougar air cleaner. Had to grind the lip off the air cleaner base where it meets the carb and drill holes in the air cleaner base to clear the Holley carb''s float adjuster screws to get the air cleaner low enough to clear the hood. I'd g...

Re: 67 289 heads

OK here's a thought. Why not get a 351W? It bolts up to your transmission and motor mounts. A crate 351W will outperform anything you can do to the 289 for less money. You can sell the 289 and recoup some of the money. You won't have to worry about component compatibility or machine shop expenses. A...

Re: XR7G third horn ID

It is the correct G horn. The first three characters are the date code. The last three characters are probably a batch marking. The numbers are correct on the one you have.

Re: XR7G third horn ID

Let's see a picture of it. Some years ago, I bought what I was told was a XR7G 3rd horn. I have seen pictures of the location and it looks like the real thing. Does anyone have the proper Delco Remy part number? what I have is 8119000270 or 8119000870. I just saw, I thought here on the site a close ...

Re: 1967 Key code location

It was on a stamped aluminum ring that came with the car when new. Fat chance of it being in the car now.

A new set of locks for the door and ignition are cheap. You will need the ignition switch too. All are less than $100 from any of the Mustang / Cougar part sellers.

Re: Correct distributor vacuum advance unit for a 390 GT

All 50 states 1968 "S" code 390GT, if it had automatic transmission it had dual advance. Also Thermactor smog system was standard.

Re: Wellington Blue GT-E

The engine and its compartment have been repainted. The dark corporate blue color is correct for any 1966 - 1978 Ford engine. If the paint was original it would have faded to a much lighter color anywhere it had been in contact with anti freeze or oil. There are many incorrect details shown, missing...

Re: PAGING BRIAN CARPENTER..I'll be you know this..

When Toyota introduced the Prius to the market they already had a plan in place to purchase and recycle every battery from every recked, scrapped, or parted out Prius. Ford licenses Toyota's hybrid synergy technology, so the same thing applies to Ford products. Not sure about Honda, but I expect the...

Re: Wellington Blue GT-E

It is in the registry, but I don't know the fellow nor have I seen the car in person. Someone sent me these same pictures a couple years ago. Nice car.
