1960 Falcon 3 door wagon

I have not posted in a long time, but I got great news today. I fell into a deal if the lifetime! Today I was given a 1960 3 door one owner wagon. It was purchased new in 1960 by a friends father, given to him when he turned 16. The car was parked in a barn in 1982 where it still sits. The best part...

What auto trans. would be in a 81 Bronco?

I was just wondering what kind of automatic transmission would be in a 81 Full Size bronco with a 302? Also how would I tell what kind of transfer case it would have? I just striped it down today and am going to try to sell off the parts. Just need some information.

Anyone using Vintage Air?

Just wondering if there was any members who have a 63 that are using the Vintage Air A/C in their car? Their web page only list a surefit model for the 64-65 years, but I am sure something can be put together for other years. I am just wondering if anybody has, and courious how it works out.

I had my 8" narrowed on my 63 Comet. I can't remember exactly what they took out, but I think it was about a 1 1/2" total. They did have to cut more spline in the axel, but it was not a big deal. While they were at it I had the axels redrilled for 4 lug for two reasons. First so I could keep one whe...

Personally, I would use steel. The factory put them in as steel for a reason. You bust one of them lines and you are dead in the water! Anyway, bending steel tubing is easy if you purchase a good tubing bender and take your time at it. Measure twice, bend once! Could be done in a afternoon or so. Ju...

One thing to remember of you are using a 8" rear, is that you will need diffrent shock plates also. The 8" has a bigger housing than the origional. In the case of my 63 Comet, I had to purchase shock plates from a 69 Mustang (I think that was the year) so that the holes in the shock plates would be ...

They are pressed in. Usually they come out easy with a pair of vice grips and a little heat.

Rear End

I am not sure about your neck of the woods,but it cost me just a little over $400 when I did mine. It included new axel bearings, axel seals, and redrilling the 5 lug axels to 4 lug. And only cutting out a total of 1/2 inch, you will not need new axels. They have enough spline to work with.

My casting numbers are the following: EOBE-6090-BB. I recentally found my handbook and I guess that means the head is 80-82 for both the 200 and a 250.

Ok, now that was ovious :oops: but thanks for the help. My casting numbers state that the head could either be from a 81-83 200CI, or 75-80 250CI. From the reading that I have done, both the heads on a 200/250 are the same after 1977. So I guess that ordering a carb for either one would be fine. Per...

Rear End

A 8" Maverick rear in a 63 Comet running 14" wheels will rub. I know this for a fact. I did the same thing on mine. It only rubbed on corners. I also put poly bushings in which helped, but not completly. I finally took it out and had to have it narrowed about 1 1/2" . But this is just my experence.
