Mark, I have a auto pedal assembly at my house if you need it... Pay shipping and it's yours.

I think I still have the auto column shifter and plastics too...

I say go with a B&M floor shift!

If it fits in a large flat rate box, it's what... $14?

The Mega shifter or the star shifter would work awesome!

If you run a mega shifter you will run into problems with the shifter lever that goes into the tranny, because it still has to operate the TRS. B&M does not make (to my knowledge) a shift lever that will still operate the TRS. But i do belive that art carr make the correct shift lever. I rigged my shift lever up to make it work its not pretty but it works.

well i dont like riggin stuff up unless i have to. Im sure it works perfect for you but, with all the work involved id rather just get one i know will work with no modding lol. However it would look kickass. i would actually move it up and put it towards the front where the stock manual shifter is =)

Ordered Diff cover today.. Cheap Summit chrome. Idc im gonna spray it with Metalcast. I cant jusitfy droppin 100 on a HD one when i dont wheel.

i know this is small. but any suggestions on which spark plug i should run?

Idiot me orderd all the wrong junk from ballistic so im sending that back today.

next week im relly goign to concentrate on finishing the other head. and get it ready to install. I still neet to shim the springs and lap the valves, clean the surface and repaint.

Next weekend going to JY for Radiator, Auto Column, oil lines, and motor mounts. I have found ones on ebay but I need the Block Plates too! sucks. Gotta wait a little bit for the rear brakes and ECM tune.. Need to get some money set aside first.. Then im done!! Sorta



Tre, any word on shipping that pedal assembly?

Stock replacement Motorcraft AWSF-32EE double platinums are great plugs. By now these might be superceded to the Motorcraft fine wire platinums which are even better.

I usually get my OE Ford replacement parts at the dealer but the same Motorcraft plugs are available at the chain parts stores for way less - probably about half as much.

Ahh Sorry Mark! I left my parents and when I got back to my house, I realized I didn't grab the pedal! Sorry man! When I get home next, maybe this weekend, I'll get it shipped out. I wanna say $15 would cover shipping from USPS. I can't imagine it being more than that.
