Re: Upgrade to 3g alternator and dual electric fans

Fan is about 1/2" from radiator and halfway in the shroud. All new hoses don't know cap rating. I have a flex fan coming in a day or so to try and pull more air at idle. It is just a $45 experiment. Fan sizes are 15" can't fit larger due to auto trans lines at radiator. It doesn't boil ove...

I cheated because I didn't have a new top carb gasket so I carefully coated both sides with permatex. Well upon reassembly, the little shake I had at idle is gone. I know the top half of the carb is warped and I filed it flat as best I could but still had a shake at idle. The permatex sealed it all ...

Re: Retune 1100 after rearend gear change

The tires are only .33" taller. According to the online calcs that should bring the 3.25 down to an effective 3.2 ratio. I got the bog out of a mashed accelerator in the previous setup just need to do it again I suppose. I want to get that taken care of then see if I want to do dist changes.

I have a pretty fresh 1966 200 with a 252 cam, raised compression, 1100 carb and a c4. I got the carb tuned to perfection(well as close as I could). Then I swapped a ford 8" in with 3.25 gears instead of the 2.83 it was born with. All new V8 drums all around along with wider 21570r14 tigerpaws....

Re: Driveshaft length

The c4 doesn't have a "hard " seal it is almost like a bellows in that it can be pushed towards the trans and will spring back. It surely doesn't slam against the transmission.

Maverick 14x6 5 lug

I picked these up for 50 bucks. I know they are ford. Think they are early 70's maverick. Fit fine except the center hole is 2.75 and the stock mustang wheel center hole is 2.5 inches. I will be relying on the lugs to center the wheels is that ok?

Dont have any pics yet. These all interchange with each other. Only thing is one ring gear is 8" diameter and the other is 7 3/4. It says so on the fordification tables on the internet. I just thought all 8" rears had 8" ring gears.
