Well I could not dig them up, so being a machinist I made a couple of square nuts up. Worked out good. Thanks for the help though.

Weather is cooling off from the summer heat. Now is still 80-89.
Plenty of gas available with prices beginning to drop back down a bit.

Getting more more excited to see folks arriving.

As long as we get it back from the repair shop, we will be in a 2012 Mercedes ML350. A rental, if it's not.

The Mustang ain't together, the night shift hasn't been pulling their weight!

Sounds to me like you are pretty good to go.  You know it will get and easy 18 mpg so just fill up every 250 to 300 miles and worry about the gage later.  I had the old "hang on" unit converted to R134 and it would freeze my knee.  Spent a lot of time and $$ to get rid of the old unit...not sure the new stuff will ever work as well. 

No, that old system should not have a WOT switch unless someone installed it.  I can't think of what would cause the sysmptoms you spoke of except possibly belt slippage.

Butt...if it will keep Mama reasonably comfy for six hundred miles we can look it over at the bash.

Seems maybe what they should have done was sell the head as a Performer and then offer a Performer RPM with bigger ports and more flow.  Interestingly they do sell a Victor single plane intake for the Cleveland. 

Pedestal rockers are not really failure prone from what I've seen.  I can't remember one ever failing on anything in fact.  I think its more a rocker selection thing, because screw in studs gets you access to cheap roller rockers. 

The Cleveland fits just fine in a Fox body.  Dainty strut towers allow a 460 to fit easier than an FE in a classic.

If you can find a truck that git hit really hard in the back end that can be a good way to go.  A friend of my neighbor's (actually, the guy who used to be half owner in the shop that painted my '67 back in the day) bought a wrecked truck like that.  $2,000 for a new frame direct from GM, bought a take off bed in good condition, bought most other parts it needed used, and with the cost of the truck, etc. had about $15,000 tied up in a truck that new sold for $35,000.  The reason the insurance company totaled the car was because of the labor cost required to put it back together.  Transferring everything over to a new frame is very time consuming.  He did all the labor himself and saved $20,000 over buying a new truck.

I just made sure the area to glue was clean. Put a nice daub of JB Weld on the back of the magnet and settled it down on the panel so that an even amount was squeezed from the edge. Leave it alone for 15 hours and it should be good to go. Everywhere there was a clip got a magnet. The top picture shows the how I temp fit the panel to the door to transfer the depressed area of the clip hole to the panel for the magnet.

I think you said you have a regulator...what kind exactly?  And where is the FP Gauge connected...ahead of or after the regulator?  And...what pump are you using?  You stated that the electric pump is preparatory to going with EFI, so...what pump?  I don't think that a high pressure EFI pump would be happy in this single line, low pressure, low flow situation.

BB

it is a return system, regulated with https://www.holley.com/products/fuel_systems/fuel_pumps_regulators_and_filters/regulators/carbureted_regulators/parts/2015
there is a efi-pump currently there is a bosch fuel pump for an old 911 or volvo earlier there were a bosch 044, both are good, and both are ment for efi, thats why I have the return line...

I've got the same magnets waiting to be glued to my door panels. What is the process and how hard is it to remove the panels?

FYI Ford, Classic Mustang Tech Discussion » I wonder??? » Yesterday 10:18 PM

Drophead is a term used to identify convertibles that can take down just the front half of the top as well as the whole thing.    Some early English sports cars of the 20's & 30's could do that.  Cars run too fast for such things now.  Think about it.

I was able to buy some very powerful and very flat Neodymium Magnets and used the JB Weld method. Worked very well and seems to work perfectly. Ask me after the Bash after hitting a potholes. But for now I really like how this turned out. 
First part was finding the areas on the door that were recessed for the magnets to sink into. The original clip areas I found to be the best. Marked with tape, transfered this mark to the back of the panels, then Jb Weld and 15 hours later I got them installed over the plastic shield. I may take the shield out and use the silver tape trick.

Mustangs in the shop(on a lift) and parts are on order!!!!!
Went for the old "test drive" the other day and while in route...........clutch pedal went to the floor again(and stayed!)
I'm now on first name basis with AAA.
Just couldn't force myself to lay on my back and pull that T-5 for the THIRD time.
The little bracket that the release arm pivots on....broke half-in-two  letting the arm just flop around and (naturally) not working.
Ordered part from NPD and will receive it Tuesday.
Total cost of the part and retaining spring.......................................................................$21.51 including shipping(which is MORE than the part itself)
Labor cost to install...............priceless!(not really butt I'm sure its more than $21.51)
I'm com'in though...........it might be in a 49 F-1....OR the Mustang, we'll see.
