  1. Actually I'll correct myself that a model is a 31 (sloped windscreen gives it away)
  2. The sedan is a 1930 model a town sedan (same as my grandfather's see pic, also an unrestored car) the yellow coupe is a 32 " b" model
  3. Sorry got sidetracked, is it worthwhile looking for an xa-xc style tank? Not sure on how difficult one would be to fit, but being narrower may help, plus some of them were long range tanks
  4. Correct, but with a 3 in collector and x over without any mufflers or tailpipes it made no difference power wise from the 2.5in system
  5. Have you thought about using an ac pump of a hybrid? (Something like a Prius etc) some of them have electric driven pumps so the aircon still works when the engine is stopped
  6. My old man's a model has 540rwhp 393 clevo, it runs twin 3 inch collector's and steps down to a twin 2.5 inch with an x pipe then out of the rear of the car it made 5 more ftlbs and 3 more hp with the exhaust on than with it off so you may not need to go that big
  7. My last post is in no way gospel, there are many other factors that can change how you setup your pinion angle, my last post is more the general rule of thumb for how you setup your pinion angle, you may find some more research is in order before you weld your spring pads up or you can end up with an un curable drivetrain vibration
  8. You dont want to do that without first finding out what angle the output shaft of the transmission is, ideally your pinion angle needs to be the opposite angle of your extension housing is, example if your extension housing centerline points down 3 degrees your pinion centerline has to point up 3 degrees to prevent your unis from binding or vibrating, heres a pic from Google to help explain

  10. You were right the first way, manuals ran a spacer, but very occasionally you come across a manual starter, they are shorter and don't engage the flex plate
  11. In the guidelines for the club permit scheme it says you must have at least one full registered vehicle
  12. If it doesn't last mini spools are usually around $80-$100
  13. Its ford USA, of course it's a pile of garbage, pretty and fast for a short time but will not outlast and of our local cars
  14. Looks like epic fun, never ever pass up the opportunity to wail on a beater
