    My new msd distributor came in today for the pace car. I put it in and it fired right up and ran half way decent. Tomorrow, I'll have to set the timing and adjust the carb. I may be able to drive this thing on the road, here soon!

    I moved it from one bay of the garage to another as we are starting to get our vehicles into their summer positions. My car hadn't been started all winter and wasn't on a battery tender so I was a little apprehensive as to whether the battery might be low but she cranked over good and fired up.

    We're not fast racers, we're more what's known as half fast racers.

    Did nothing on the car, but did receive my original Ford bill of sale from Marti, all that's left now is to try to find the build sheet.Name:  20180301_135959_001.jpg

    Thanks dudes! She arrived at 6:38 this morning, ten fingers and ten toes. Now maybe I should weld some anchors into the back for a baby seat because my wife isn't feeling the lap belt situation back there.

    Yanked the motor and c5 tranny out of the 79 cobra last night. Also started tearing down a low mileage non-HO 302. Just going to strip it down to the short block and find new/used heads and cam. I already have a good Holley 4 barrel and intake. I may have found an E cam here locally. I'd like to find a set of gt40's or something kinda cheap. So far, everyone wants $3-500 for junkyard take-off gt40's around here.

    Are you saying your local pull yards want 3-500 for heads? Or people on Craigslist?
    I always see the correct year Explorers at my local pull-a-part but so far I havenít felt froggy enough to grab a pair.
    edit: if Iím reading the price list correctly my local place would sell a set for $100.

    Sarted going thru the harness and cleaning it up. Had to replace a section of wire for the a/c pressure switch too.

    Both. My local yards are a joke. And people think gt40 heads are worth as much as a good used set of aluminum aftermarkets!

    Edit: We don't have "you pull" yards around here. They don't trust these tweakers with tools lol

    Drove the pace car under her own power! Granted, I just went down the street a little ways, but it felt good just to get her going again. I still need to figure out the brake issue. It barely has any. Pedal goes to the floor. I bled the system twice already. I guess I could still have some air in the lines somewhere. Also, the fan will only kick on if I tap the fan controller. I've replaced the controller twice and same issue with the last 2 (first one didn't work at all). Relay tests ok.

    Anyway, I put tags on her today, so she's legal and should be going for paint soon.

    Picked up a timing light and a vacuum tester and got the Stang running a little better. The bucking/stumbling at part throttle seems gone but now I get a split second of hesitation when I get on the gas from part throttle. Decided to drink several beers and reflect on this issue.

    Got some feeler gauges (gonna need a bigger tool chest before it’s all said and done) and got to adjusting my accelerator pumps. Dropped the rear float to see if it’ll stop stalling on decel.
    Still not quite “there” but between today and yesterday she’s driving a lot better around town.

    Thanks man! Whatís funny is before I settled on a four-eye my wife was totally on-board with me buying a mid-60ís Beetle. At least the Stang is 1980ís-safe...
    Edit: on a serious note I probably just wonít drive the baby around in it until sheís in a forward-facing seat.

    Scored another set of mesh wheels. These are ARE’s and almost perfect. They only have 2 center caps, but for the dirt cheap price, I can’t complain.

    I got lucky on these as a buddy sent me the link when they were posted, otherwise I would have never know about them. I was really surprised that they were local. I somehow was first in line and there were people waiting behind me, but for $150 I couldn’t pass them up.

    Sorry everyone else locally that was hoping I would pass.
