  1. Sacramento vintage ford sells cloth wiring.
  2. That's a nice setup. Simple and clean looking.
  3. The fittings were on the carbs when I bought them. I'm a ways away from finalizing it but I will be running the matching thickstun fuel block to feed the carbs. I have a factory mechanical pump like you as well. I have Langdons cast headers.
  4. Sounds like you're on a tight budget. There are ways to do this without breaking the bank. You might be money ahead getting the aerostar springs and relocating the shocks. You may still need to cut the coils down, trial and error. Also, like I said earlier, relocation the spring plate to the bottom of the control arm is fairly easy. On a side note, I bought a new Thickstun from the guy on ebay. The dude selling them is damn cool and his parts are like artwork.
  5. Shock relocation alone helps eliminate the floating feeling.
  6. You can relocate the lower spring plate to the underside of the control arm to drop it some. Also a good time to make a new upper shock mount while you're in there.
  7. Jump it at the starter itself, not the battery. Starter can handle 12 volt no problem.
  8. Turlock swap meet is Jan 25th and 26th. If you haven't gone before, you should go. It's massive and you never know what you will find. Even if you don't find anything you need there, you may make a contact that has info or parts.
  9. Try vintage power wagons. They might not have a single kit but they have everything you'll need for a rebuild. Also, ask your machinist or local Napa. Sometimes they can put together all of the pieces as a kit.
  10. If it were me, I'd paint/powdercoat the stock wheels and run a small original cap. Maybe even a spider cap. As far as color, I like contrasting wheels, either a darker red or even cream. Maybe drop the front an inch or two. I'm more of a custom/hot rod guy though.
  11. There are a lot of aftermarket universal drag links available. If you're not worried about keeping your car stock, some are as cheap as 60 bucks. Moog sells a lot of different length links. 300 bucks for a single suspension part is pretty steep.
  12. Yep, my local Napa has been great for parts. I use their shocks on my cars and trucks. Something about going to a store and talking with other car guys and getting the parts you need is very satisfying compared to hitting a few keys and saving a few bucks.
  13. Too bad you aren't closer to me. I'd give you the 3 speed out of my 49. Went with a t5 and the original tranny is just taking up trunk space.
