  1. Well the old rear end is out. All the Parts from QP arrived in the last week. Total bill was 3300.00 . I will not be using their upgraded brake line kit. ( not worth the $75.00 and would look like crap in my opinion ) Instead i went to my parts store ( autovalue ) and bought weld on brake line retainers PN 60029 allstar performance, and ford replacement rubber hoses PN BH25665 parts master and PN 50150 allstar performance brake line clips. I made a bracket to bolt to the 3rd member to mount the original brake tee. I am using NiCopp hard brake lines from the rubber lines to the tee. This will look Factory i hope. Pics coming later today. I hope...
  2. Call Butler Performance.https://butlerperformance.com/i-24487139-bp-crate-engine-461-501-cu-in-long-block.html?ref=category:1267471
  3. make sure the Patch piece is up to ethanol rated gas line. 70 didnt have the canister as far as i know. The crushed piece is the issue i bet.
  4. Road trip to hart mi anyone? Great article.
  5. what ever i said im sorry...LOL you disappeared after we met.Welcome back! Hmmm now that i think about it..its me not you.LOL
  6. If I wasn't deathly afraid of falling through the ice I would love to do this.
  7. I CAN DRIVE SLOW! I just have to put a piece of wood under the accelerator pedal LOL
  8. Nice car and pic! Loved our GP GT. Welcome to the site !
  9. Hmmmm not sure what i did.. Anyways i ordered it yesterday 35spline eaton trutrac posi, ford explorer brakes, new N case, back brace all the overkill extras 3k to my door. About 2 weeks it will be here. Real nice people to talk to. Only found a couple people who had issues doing some searches. And between the feedback on the PY site and lots of PM's i think i'll be happy. Time will tell though. Need about 500 miles to break it in. Keep ya posted though.
  10. Wow interesting read. Nice cars as well! welcome along.
  11. I am close to ordering the rear end complete from QP. https://www.quickperformance.com/9-F...2_p_20386.html One of my questions is about the disk brake upgrade. Specifically this option, Wilwood Dynalite 12.19" Disc With Shoe Style Park Brake [+$450.00] Has any one here went this route? I haven't contacted them yet. I want to know how well it works and if it is worth it. Did you have to change the prop valve? I have factory disc's in front now with factory rear drums. They work fine for me but if it stops better then why not I guess. Second question is the posi options. We drive our car a lot. 10k plus a summer.(before we got our Labrador,she's calming down so hopefully we can take her with us) With some weekends at a 1/8th mile track with a lot of hot lapping. I also plan on running a couple 1/4 mile tracks this summer. With that in mind I am thinking this is the way to go 31 Spline Eaton Truetrac Posi [+$125.00] JD race built the current 8.2 out of a 68 GTO that I will be replacing. Nothing wrong with it but I plan on a cross country trip this summer and if I have any issues I think I can find parts for the 9inch easier if I had a problem on the road. I am also looking to put some sticky slicks on the rear for the track days. Opinions welcomed Thanks Joe
  12. even pics of parts are cool with us! Welcome aboard.
  13. Cant wait to see the build of this one!
  14. I had a gas station owner tell me its because people on the freeway NEED the gas because they seldom realize oh ohhh I'm on E . And they aren't in a situation to drive around and look for cheaper gas.
  15. I'm not talking to you, you broke the chatbox LOL
  16. Maybe his doctor was using the equivalent for people? The only thing i found useful with those books was they made me get the factory books.
  17. Corporate greed again rears its ugly head. Not to mention all the pensioners that are getting screwed
  18. I love it! Any plans to bump the HP a bit?
