Project Farm: Car Battery Test

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Project Farm: Car Battery Test
I saw this yesterday and thought I'd post it here.



Personally I've always had good results from Autozone batteries, with all lasting 7 years or more. I thought it was interesting that Wal Mart batteries are made by the same company but deliver a little more power. I wonder if they last as long.

Starts but won’t run issue, help me trouble shoot

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Starts but won’t run issue, help me trouble shoot
So I drove my car (65 New Yorker) to get breakfast this morning and everything was fine. I got back and washed it, then when I went to put it back in the garage she would start like normal, then immediately cut off when I let off of the key/put it in the run position. I tried it a few times and figured out that she will run if I hold the key just off of starter engagement. Obviously not good, but I was able to back it in the garage and she ran fine while doing so. I've never had a similar...

Getting a title in NC

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Getting a title in NC
Guys I have a car that I need to title, but there are complication with the title. Back story; I bought the car 15 years ago with an open title, and I have the original title. Now here is where things get "fun". The guy that I bought the car from bought it from the 2nd owner in 72', then stuffed it in a barn never changing the title. Fast forward, I buy the car and the guy who's name is on the title dies pretty much that same week or month. His family proceeds to fight over every...

How to mount a fan shroud?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on How to mount a fan shroud?
Guys I bought a fan shroud from Davescuda and I'm looking to install it this weekend but I can't find any specs/examples of how to mount the brackets to the radiator. I assume some type of cage nut, but I can't find any examples/specs of what will fit the slots properly. If anybody can help me out here I'd appreciate it.

Car is a 65' with the 22" radiator.

Would you ride in Ken Blocks 65 Mustang?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Would you ride in Ken Blocks 65 Mustang?
Thought I'd link this if anybody likes the Gymkhana videos. This is Ken Blocks latest Gymkhana video with his mildly modified 65 Mustang, the "Hoonicorn", version 2.0 going up hill. I think this version makes 1400 hp to all 4 wheels chugging methanol. I'd love to take a ride in it, but only on flat ground.

Leaf spring rebuild

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Leaf spring rebuild
I'm looking to do a small project on my car since I'm not yet emotionally ready to fork out a large sum of money for upholstery, I thought I would rebuild my leaf spring packs. I've searched here and didn't find anything relevant, nor did I find any ready made kits for my car on line (65 New Yorker). What I did find was that Moog offers 2 piece bushings and Firm Feel shows 1 piece bushings to be available. Does anyone have any input about these two options? Where can I find the pads that go...
