      Hi Zookeeper. Not sure how to PM hopefully this is correct. The T5 I have has a B&M short throw shifter on it already. Thoughts/suggestions??

      hi, i see you have a 67 shelby, do you know how much longer the fiberglass nose is than the stock headlight buckets?, i have a 68 im going to put either an E kit or shelby nose on and i want to use my good steel hood with my boss 429 scoop and custom louvers, how much work do you think it would be to extend my steel hood?? any input is appreciated. thanks

      the though did cross my mind, but the battery is low on power. Adjust it while the car is running:eek:?? Wow thats interesting, wouldn't I have to worry about oil being flinged at me, and how can you even hold the socket on the rocker arms with it moving? Interesting...

      I don't know about the Pertronix 1, but I bought mine with the whole Pertronix ignition setup, Flame Thower coil, wires, and Pertronix II module. But a friend of mine just installed a Pertronix II with all his stock stuff on his '65 GTO and he has no problem. Whatever you decide, I'd be inclined to go with whatever Pertronix (or any other ignition manufacturer) recommends. Hope this helps, Jim

      Hey Zoo, got another Q. I cannot use a flame thrower coil I with a pertronix module I right? In the instructions for installing the module it says its only compatible with the stock coil... Though I ran the flame thrower coil for two years (which now I know why the module crapped out). Thanks for the help

      Thanks for the info. I guess I will look into bigger Jets. Where is the best place to buy them since I have little experiance with finding carb parts and dont want to be ripped off. Thanks!

      Hi. Just letting you know I tested the car again. I did combinations of 3/4, 1 1/2, 2, 3, and 4 turns out each with the engine cold and then warm. Each time the car bogged and the higher I went the quicker it wanted to stall. I am going to swap the holley back on and ticker with it since I have to have a drivable car. Thanks for the help!
