    Yes, standard size flywheel. It's only the flange on the bell-housing that's trimmed. This may weaken it a little bit but I doubt it would cause any problems with the exception that a modified...

    I doubt the "glue" has got to be the "best of the best" if your badge has the two prongs. The prongs hold it in place and the glue just keeps it from vibrating off.

    Of course if the prongs stick...

    It appears you remember correctly. Summit lists the 28 ox flywheel for years 1968-1981 and the 50 oz flywheel for years 1986-1991. Not sure about years in between. My Ford Parts Interchange book,...

    I think Paul should do oil change after oil change testing how various oils affect the squeak. Then we'd all know which oil has the best lubriscosity and which ones we shouldn't use.

    I had a problem with a failing sensor once more than once, but perhaps not the same type of sensor you're using. The sensors I'm talking about have an internal diaphragm and a rheostat. If the...

    Looks like the "offset" is due to the frame being just a tad wide where it sits between the bushings. This probably puts pressure on the bushing inside the a-arm resulting in the slight offset. Or...

    A Stunning Automobile

    Every so often I see a car I covet. This is one of them. Maybe the style isn't for everyone, but things would be a bit boring if we all liked the same thing (except for Cobras of course!). Here a...
