  • Got married - ended up in Lady Penelope's car...

    Happy days, me and my OH finally tied the knot back in May. Had an utterly fantastic day and of course the Mustang played a part on our special day too (in fact we based the entire colour theme of the day on the colour of the Mustang's Silver blue). My best man drove us from the registry office to the...

  • That transformation is incredible! I remember reading your original thread about the works. Really glad to see your back on the road with it.

  • I guess first thing is to get a vacuum gauge on the carb and check the vacuum is where it needs to be and is stable. Do you know if your using ported or manifold vacuum? You can also check if the advance in the dizzy needs a clean/lubrication.

    My understanding is that vacuum advance should...

  • Vacuum advance? Could it be advancing timing too much (or not enough) causing the engine to run rough/funky.

    Another vote for Koni! thanks for the feedback here, that really helps. Given the last few replies and the bit of research I've been doing I'm pretty much sold on Koni shocks now :) Just need to decide whether to go for street or adjustable. Street would solve the issues right now and no doubt last...

    [QUOTE=cobraboy;n1232660]

    I know of Koni as a brand but shocks aren't something I've ever done much reading into. I see there is STR.T (street) and adjustable versions with quite a price difference! how useful are adjustable shocks on a car that'll likely end up just cruising most of its...

    Outstanding advice here. I've had my own trip down Pertronix lane earlier this year.

    Upgraded my Pertronix Ignitor 1 and original 6V coil to a Pertronix Ignitor 3 and Flamethrower coil 3 along with new Pertronix HT leads and Autolite 45 plugs with the goal of improving cold starts and just...

    Amazing, thank you for the advice here. Midland Motor Springs are local to me which is great, so I'll see what they can do for me in terms of re-tempering.

    Any suggestions on decent shock? Are the Scott Drake ones any good?

    Talk to me about rear suspension

    The rear suspension of my 65 feels very soft and has developed a bit of a creak when compressed slightly, most noticeable when cornering. Ride height still looks ok (both rears sit around the 640mm mark from ground to arch where as the fronts are slightly lower) but I'd like to look at freshening it...
