  1. Dang it... What do your plugs look like? Ed
  2. I need to order this for the old man... he remembers this from back in the day and thought it was such great fun how Ford stuck it to Ferrari. Nice.
  3. Cool.... Ed
  4. Very, very nice... Avatar pic is MidAm 2016? I think that's Travis', Terry's, mine, and Barney's... then maybe Earl with the hood up (showing off those Mikunis ) Ed
  5. Agree... Replace that diff hanger, too. You did use the Permatex Ultra Grey for the diff? I suppose Permatex Ultra Black would work, I use it for most everything... but I used Ultra Grey on diffs. Ed
  6. 100%... this is far superior to the tiny, rectangular filters. Ed
  7. Very frustrating, Anthony... Are you absolutely certain you have the firing order correct? I got in a hurry a couple months ago on my '72... had pulled some 45DCOEs off it and replaced them with a 32/36 (I'm keeping the 45s for another project). I had swapped the header, starter, brake booster, and I must have replaced the cap on the dizzy... when I went to crank it up and get it going again, it ran like complete crap... very stumbly, couldn't get it to idle, etc... It sounded a lot like your video above. I pulled plugs and they were goofy... Checked and rechecked the timing...something was amiss. In my dyslexic fumbling, I had placed the plug wires out of order on the dizzy. Once I got it correct, it ran well. I sure hope it's something simple like this... Ed
  8. Steve, In the last few days I'm getting a lot of Error 523 messages from Cloudfare stating the host can't be reached... It makes it sound like the problem is on your end, but I don't know... Sometimes the page will reload on the first re-try, sometimes it takes a few minutes. Any ideas? Thanks, Ed Here's some text from the error page: What can I do? If you're a visitor of this website: Please try again in a few minutes. If you're the owner of this website: Check your DNS Settings. A 523 error means that Cloudflare could not reach your host web server. The most common cause is that your DNS settings are incorrect. Please contact your hosting provider to confirm your origin IP and then make sure the correct IP is listed for your A record in your Cloudflare DNS Settings page.
  9. Thanks y'all... soon it'll be off the road for paint and interior. Ed
  10. Talk to Le Tran at 2002 GarageWerks about stroker M10s http://www.2002gw.com/ 2002GarageWerks Inc. 607 W Holt Blvd Ontario, California 91762 Mon - Fri: 10AM - 6PM US: 1-626-497-2002 Ed
  11. gutentite, as Daron says This is very handy spreadsheet with all the torque specs. Bottom of page has many tabs for each subsection of the car. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1VzY_ydaeqp_lN-NT_dpMSjvD9_rbh5g27BunmTNRKKI/edit#gid=0
  12. Also... Pull the cap off the dizzy and see how much axial play you have in the dizzy' shaft (up and down). My old '75 made a noticeable rattle. Ed
  13. Do you have a mechanical fuel pump? Are you using an engine oil with ZDDP (zinc) additive? Might be an exhaust leak at the manifold... these can sound very much like a clicking noise. Use a mechanic's stethoscope to pin point the source of the clicking... they are cheap at most local auto parts stores and really do work. Ed
