Re: The 64-5 issue some members have????

Looks like a 64 with 65 fenders. 64 cali side spears and instruments. Nice work but it’s not a restoration.

Re: 64 taillight lenses

Glad those lenses arrived safe Fred!

I also received my timer modules a week or so ago. Have yet to mess with them though.

Re: Lavron's '64 Build Thread

If you want a preset ride height you could install a levelling valve like big trucks have for their air suspension. Some of them have an electric dump switch to deflate them. Similar to this one but it doesn’t have an electric dump switch: https://www.amazon.com/Haldex-90054007-Height-Control-Valve/...

Re: universal joint rear

Measure cap width and diameter and go down to Napa and ask for a conversion u joint and give them the measurements. Helps if you can take both u joints with you then they can measure them. I think I have a conversion joints on both ends of my driveshaft. T5 trans to police interceptor aluminum drive...

Re: 64 T-5 Tranny swap

If you use a Mustang T5 like I did, you’ll have to cut a hole for the shifter and there is a cross brace under the floor there. Plenty of people have cut it without trouble. The shifter location is good with bucket seats. If you have a bench you way want to use an S10 tailshaft which moves the shift...

Re: 64 tail light lenses

Really well should be done later this week. It’ll be the earliest we’ve been done in the 5? Years I’ve worked here. Years past we’ve been going into late October or early November. Makes for a long grind though with no rain days!

Re: 1963 falcon convertible converting to a 1994 Ho302 with T-5 trans conversion

Highly doubtful the 94 headers will work. I'm using Hedman 88400 shorties in my 64, pretty tight fit especially on the drivers side. Not sure how different the engine bay in a 63 is. As for power steering, I imagine the 94 pump will work, rotation direction doesn't matter, it will just be a matter o...

Re: LED Tail Light Issues

I converted my tails and signals to LED this summer. Took a few tries to find a flasher that would work properly...or somewhat properly. Had to go to a 3 wire type, with one wire being a ground. The one I ended up with works as it should except the flasher clicks 2-3 extra times once the lights quit...

Re: Water Pump Rotation

Serpentine setups were available in standard or reverse. Easy to tell by looking at the pulley. Smooth pulley = reverse rotation, ribbed = standard. Don't try to run a reverse rotation pump backwards, it won't work very well, if it will even bolt up, which I doubt it would. You need the timing cover...

Re: what did you do to your comet today?

Pulled my fenders off to install my caliente badges. Ever since I had the car painted some twenty odd years ago I’ve never had them on because I lost one in the process. Found a nice pair a few months ago that even have all their pins still - the original one I have only has 2 out of 4 left. My loca...

Re: OT. Help when you can

The local hospital was looking for N100 masks a few days ago. The best I have is a couple N95's. The difference, I gather, is that N100's filter out more particles than the N95 (99.7 vs 95%). I don't keep the single use ones around since they always fog up my glasses. And I can't see anything withou...
