    Garage height to pull engine?

    Easiest way I’ve found is to roll it out into the driveway, lay the hood against the windshield, pull the motor and push it bsck inside. It’s a lot lighter with no motor Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spongy pedal, bad booster?

    Just wanted to bring some closure to this issue, Replaced the master cylinder, hooked the lines up and had my seven year old help me bleed. Old truck stops like its supposed to now, thanks for the tips y’all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spongy pedal, bad booster?

    Thanks, The booster had an adjustable push rod in it and I need to move it out about 3/8ths of an inch, now I'm getting a little bit of air in with every couple of brake pedal depressions, with the outlets plugged. I'll keep working it... and I didn't think about hooking up one outlet at a...

    Spongy pedal, bad booster?

    Hey ya'll My 68 has a front disc conversion, a brass prop valve, and a vacuum booster. A little while back, my brake light on the dash came on and my brakes weren't stopping right. Previously, I had a nice hard brake pedal, which depressed a little when I cranked the engine. Now it doesn't...

    Stock Ride shock preference

    What do you guys prefer? I’ve got no suspension lift and may occasionally find some mud, but nothing hardcore. Truck mostly goes to the beer store and the deer lease, can get muddy but I avoid it when I can, I’m beyond the stage of my life where I enjoyed breaking shit in the woods. I just want...

    Pulled the motor

    That 200 will be a nice upgrade I bet. I beefed up my 170 last year and I really think I want a 2bbl carb on it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Does this kind of stuff bother anyone else?

    I’m 99% sure that the transmission is in the wrong place. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    6 cylinder carb spacer question

    I wouldn’t replace the carb for that, I’d get the right spacer. If your block says C8 it was made for a 68, the DE doesn’t necessarily mean it came out of a falcon, simply that the block was designed for the falcon originally. You could have a c8 block that was delivered in a 71 vehicle, as...

    Coil resistor?

    B Ron Co, I never knew that about the 12V coil for Pertronix, I’ve been running this thing on 6V for 10 years! No wonder it was such a dog! Paul, I found the old post with the pictures, and used the wiring diagram posted above to figure which wire to pull from the switch, and ran a normal wire...

    cam change

    Move the distributor a tooth first, after that check your timing if it is way off and you can't pull it in Then you may start to wonder if the cam isn't indexed properly. Degree your cam, if you can't come up with anything else. If you degree the cam you will know without a doubt that it is...

    Same old question 6 cyl- 302 swap

    You can add all of the things you want, but they will suck hard on that 105hp ford gave you from the factory. I just rebuilt my 170, and it does pretty well, but I think the AC will really hurt. Disc brakes won't, and power steering would be minimal I would think. I'm prettt sure you'd have to...

    Coil resistor?

    Thanks for helping with this cornfusion, I'll update when I figure this out, I'll probably bypass the resistor wire and leave it in place for later...

    Coil resistor?

    I got the 40511, which is 3 Ohm. Picked it because I read an article by a guy who worked for Pertronix that said you should use a 3 as opposed to 1.5 or .6 on a 6 banger, but then I got the instructions with the coil, which read a little different.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
