Re: Electric Power Brakes,,?

I did a 93 Fox body big block swap with a hydro boost and rack from a 2002 Mustang GT,electric pump from a Toyota MR2.Really not to tough to do.Run the pressure line from the pump to the booster,another separate pressure line from booster to rack,merge the 2 return lines and back to the pump.Origina...

Re: 9'' Rear End

It would be fun to stick a big inch high power motor in that car.Super sleeper patina fest.

Re: Tach Questions

You have it right.If you put some kind of plug under the hood for temporary use,you need a jumper between the poles to run without the extra tach.

Re: Introducing Betsy

Sorry to hear about you wife,, That's a really nice Comet you have. Bet it is a handful with 600+ Welcome. Lou Yeah,Lou,it was a handful.I had a set of 10.5 drag radials on it.If you warmed them up a little,it would launch hard and fairly straight but you had to stay on top of it or you're in the d...

Re: Tach Questions

Current driven,as in tach operation,not currently driven.Had to laugh,sorry.Older Ford vehicles used current driven tachs,hooked in series from the run-start position on the switch to the positive on the coil through the resistor wire.I would think those old Faria's are current driven.If so,you can ...

Re: Brake lines

Lou,3/16 to the back is what I have always used.The stainless can be tough to flare and tough to avoid leaks,even in factory prebent lines.

Re: fender extension

Thanks Lou! Saw one on eBay that's looks ok but pics can be deceiving.LH side is usually the one to get popped,bent but not cracked.

Re: 1967 Comet shifter

In that thread,looks close to the 2nd pic from the top down.The owner has been sitting on this project for 30 yrs and doesn't remember a whole lot about it.I don't think the trans is original,probably Galaxie.He wants it "correct" but that"s going to be a tall order.Boxes full of stuff,some from dif...

1967 Comet shifter

The subject is an original 67 S code console shifter,C6 trans.The car has the factory shifter but the trans shift lever,kickdown lever, and linkage don't appear to be correct.Would anyone happen to have a picture of these three pieces or know where there is some? Thanks!

Re: Rear Tire Rubbing the Wheel Well

Energy Suspensions does (did) have the front bushings but I don't think they are actually listed for Comet.Measure yours and match up with what they have.A panhard bar will cure the rubbing if everything else is in order.You can get some pretty big tires under stock wheel wells but it takes spring r...

Re: Paint question

Listen to Lou...2 gallons doing what you're going to do.The pros can sometimes get by with less but they know exactly how much to mix and what gun to use.A lot of paint ends up in the air doing the jambs and under hood.If it's a custom mix,it's bad news to run out as that extra quart they mix up mig...

Re: Sedan Rear Window Trim

It looks like they might be reveal molding clips such as these...

Doesn't look like there's any groove in the rubber for the molding like the HTs. Are there any pins welded to the body below the rubber?

Re: Intake Gaskets

I don't know,Lou...those gaskets do fit the ports perfect but even if you trim the coolant passage,the exposed aluminum on the head is going to corrode. If it were me,I would try to find something that fit a little better. Also,some people have had issues with the print-o-seal design of that gasket.
