The "little one" is 6'1" and about 240.  Funny part is I'm 5'10" and down from 260 to 179.  I think I need to get them DNA tested.  Lucy, you got some 'splainin to do.   ;D

Did somebody say "Deuce and a Half"?  My younger son just traded for one.

You cannot view this attachment.

Just as a size reference, my younger son is the larger of the two at 6'5" and 340 pounds.

There are plenty of people on the forum I have no problem using F&F, but they have to be established members that have proved themselves.

You can also look at their profile and pull up their previous posts to get an idea of intentions.
Good to know that your criteria is dependent on who it is. Because many of us will only take PayPal FF when selling parts on the forums.

Yes, you always get F&F. Even the first time I bought from you I had no problem doing it.  I felt very confident that you would not risk your reputation for a few bucks!

Pretty sure I posted on this thread about a week ago.  It appears it was deleted.

I have seen some reproduction '66 10 spokes for about $275 each.  The tires new are about $500 each.  The BaT tires were made in '15 & '16.  The ones listed on SAAC, who knows since the seller seems to be intentionally avoiding showing the DOT numbers and now deleted the original listing with the pictures. Maybe the next $5 price reduction will get 'em sold.

I'm no math wiz, but it seems to me, you would be crazy to overpay for used when you can get them new cheaper.

Let's see how long before this response is deleted.

It's all about an idiot trying to boost his post count!

Take him out as often as you can and make the most of them.  Any trip could be
the last and you won't know which one until it's too late.  Wish my dad was around to go for ride!!

If you do have to re-tap it, I wouldn't jump to 1/4".  Maybe a 12-28? Or. a metric size in between.  Yes, I know it a sin to use metric on your old American iron, but sometimes it's the best solution.

Good to know. Thanks

I was aware that the cams and induction were different, but didn't know about the crank.
#11
Just curious.  What is different on the crank?  I have a 96 Cobra and a 97 Mark VIII.

That diagram appears to be for use with the sock coil.  If you run the Pertronics coil, you have to run 12 volts to it too, right?

You can also look for places that sell race fuel at the pumps.  They usually have it or can tell you where to get it.

I only suggested ethanol free as a diagnostic tool.  I wouldn't want to have to search for it every time I need gas.

Type in your zip code and see what comes up.  I think there's more websites like this.

Have you tried a tank of ethanol free fuel to be sure that's the problem? 

Add a phenolic spacer under the carb or you could block off the crossover passage on the intake.  It will take longer to warm up if you drive in the winter.
