Just wondering if anyone else is up to their ears in a project?
We've heard from Roger, and myself (maybe too much), and Jeff has been keeping up posted on his wagon. Patrick has gave us a taste of his brake upgrade, sooooo I am curious if all of you out there reading this have anything going on???
I would like to see some work that people have done to their steering, brakes, and engine stuff. I am getting ready to really go to town on the delivery so I will post up on the "reconstruction has begun" thread for mine.
Show me what you got, I could use some good ideas.[thumb]:sawzall: Steve

I will be re-installing my repaired radiator this week. My new heater core is in and ready to go, and my heater control cables are also fixed and installed. (When I reinstalled the core, I "screwed" the radiator drain cock the wrong direction and stripped the threads! :doh:)
Pat has the primary metering block out of my carb doing a mod to correct the idle mixture. Once he's done with the mod, we'll reassemble the carb and see if she'll tune up!

Gary -

We could make a custom double Weber adapter for you and then you could have the only dual progressive Weber carb setup on a Falcon in the world!

Just sayin...

WIAI..... Buttoned up the engine yesterday, headers fit like a glove (thanks john) plugs and wires in, distributor in, hoses and belt on. Check.
Now for the fuel system, paint the interior and get to wiring. Then we will give her the Roger 7777 treatment and hopefully start driving again!!!!!

Steve, the 88 mustang in tank fuel pump fits in the same size hole as a falcon and uses the gasket and lock ring, or mount one under the car like I have on my 51 efi truck.....jh:BEER:

Thanks, I opted for the walbro frame mount pump. I ran one of those in my Bronco with the same motor. I have my fingers crossed that I will start her up in the next weekend or two.
