I usually clean most things up and paint while there are off the truck, was just concerned what would happen if painted. I have plenty of POR 15 sitting around, think that will work after some good blasting?

Has anyone ever seen a York compressor mounted on the passengers side?

If you don't have access to a bender, you can buy a kit to do this. It includes rear hoop and two spreaders. Might need to cut for fit depending on your current cage.

Hope nobody minds me digging up an old thread. Just bought a Holley T/A and plan on mounting it to a Ford 4bbl manifold. I do not have the spacer for it and I am having trouble find ing one with the vacumn port for the valve cover breather.

Just order a rebuild kit for the limited slip you have and the 9" is very easy to fix as the carrier splits in half, so it's just stack and go. Ok whats the trick to splitting the case. I took the screw out, but can't split them. I think the clutchs are good, but just want to check before install.

The truck has 66000 original miles, with about 20,000 of those on a rebuild in 86.

So pulling the grill and radiator will allow the can to slide out. Enough room with out screwing with co support?

There is a number of differences. The 66/67 had handles to open door instead of a "paddle"???, removable window frames, and the latches. There may be more, not sure if lock sets are the same or different.

When you get the new pump on, it should be pumping in the area of 5 psi. I'd disconnect the vacumn booster and plug the port when adjusting the carb, the connect it up and see if there was a diffence.

Oh, and when you're checking psi, it should probably be in the 3 to 7 psi range, with about 4-5 being optimal for most circumstances.

Those 31 spline from Mike at Complete are probably for a big bearing. I asked him if he sold the 31 spline for a small bearing and he said the bearings were cheap Chinesse bearing and he will not sell them. Before you spend $$$, just make sure they are what you need.
