|kyle2002stang!||pulled the valve cover to find that the rocker arm on the bad cylinder had somehow come off. so i looseden the nut, put it back on, and tightened it up. only problem is that its incredibly sloppy. like theres a 1/4 inch of play between the rocker and the valve stem. thoughts?|

i dropped the old fuel tank out and threw it away as it was full of corrosion and rust. also junked all the original steel fuel line. i installed a brand new tank and sending unit and ran all new 3/8 hard fuel line.
i have all new brake parts waiting to go on as well. maybe ill do it this weekend?
i also got license and registration for it. first time in 24 years this car has been road legal!
i still nedd to figure out the exhaust. it rusted off under the floorboards and is loud as hell. i want to get some headers and build a system from there. run the pipes out the side in front of the rear tires on each side? not sure on mufflers yet either.

|Edgethis||Thats awesome you found the original owner. Pretty cool about the dent, just adds to the history of the car. The wheels look great on there.|

after 4 months i finally got the title for the car.
i was sorting through some old papers that i found in the car while i was cleaning it and found the original build sheet as well as a registration card from 1970. with some internet searching i managed to find the guy who bought the car brand new in 1970! he was very surprised and happy to find out the car still existed. he traded in a 67 cougar for it. and the dent right above the windshield? turns out its from hitting a fence post he said. interesting stuff!

wheels are on! i got a edelbrock performer intake for it that ive had laying around for the last year or two. im also working on getting a 4 barrel carb as well.

i cleaned the tank out and replaced a bunch of fuel line and replaced the filter and it all works! i put a solid 10 miles of driving on the car. it still needs some carb work i think. you can rev it up in park, but when you stup on it while moving it just kinda falls on its face. i washed it up and waxed it last night. also threw my old bullitts on the rear. i need some small spacers for the fronts to fit.

|kyle2002stang!||everything is almost ready to go! this whole time i was running it out of a gas can. i decided to hook it up t the tank,put 5 gallons in and see what happens. unfortunately it will not run at all now. i guess ill need a new tank and fuel lines now. im honestly debating on just throwing a fuel cell in the trunk.|
