No splicing necessary! Just buy MSD part no. 8869, it is a plug-in adapter cable that plugs into the MSD box plug on one end and the factory Ford Duraspark plug on the other. No splicing, no mess, no worrying about which wire plugs into which wire. It's made by MSD, runs about $15-20 if I remember c...

If the spark test doesn't show bad wires, cap, or plugs, I would venture a guess that the compression on those back cylinders might be below average and at that point you may want to do a compression test. If a cylinder is not "pulling it's weight" when it comes to compression and contributing to en...

I think I have tried almost every 1, 2, and 3 (1x3) bbl. combination on a 68 block with 69 and 70 large log heads over the years. See the details of the engine in my profile list below (the Mustang engine), it's not too far from your configuration, and my 252 cam is not too far from stock. In most o...

I think the "ring" is likely a damper/crank pulley repair sleeve. If your damper/crank pulley had a groove worn it it from where the oil front seal rode against it, you are supposed to degrease it, put some of the pro-lock on it, and carefully tap the repair sleeve over the grooved surface. You end ...

This is almost a shot in the dark with all the focus on the engine components, but I couldn't help but notice you keep saying the engine has this idling problem when in gear with the brakes engaged. You don't by chance have power brakes do you? I had a problem like this that drove me crazy once and ...

I did a very similar (spec-wise, same cam and all) rebuild on a 200 in my 68 Mustang and wasn't too impressed with the result either (felt only about 5-10% stronger). Then I added a dual outlet header and 2" dual exhaust and it felt like it gained more than the whole rebuild! I think the key was tor...

I've caught this reference to a 200/3.3 2 bbl in other sources in the past, and after years of looking in junkyards, car shows, and other reference books that don't show this option at all- I'm pretty much convinced this is always a mistake/mixup with the 232/3.8 V-6 that started being built that ye...

2.79 Gears

Hi Sedanman, I work in Bellevue 3 days a week. I've got an 8" 2.79 non-posi drop-out out of my 66 Mustang in good used condition (I went 3.5s in that car but saved this pumpkin because the gears were quiet). I will sell it to you for $25 and you can try out the different ratio for yourself if you wa...

Thanks for Help

Thanks everyone, it took a bar through the pedal mount hole and a sledge hammer, but I finally got it out. :D

I'm following the instructions given at http://www.kastang.net/reference/Dualmcconversion.pdf (very helpful, thank you). The MC to pedal rod just fell out of my old 65 MC, but the rod in the 67 MC seems to be held in somehow, it won't come out. WHat is the trick to this?

Thanks, Scott
