Re: 63 Mercury Comet

Free car, and it's freakin awesome.

You said you were 22 and spend your weekends hanging out in your dad's shop. I'm 35, and that fella isn't my dad, but I'd probably live in that shop if yall wouldn't kick me out.

Ive got two daughters 9 - 10, when my wife asks me whats up with all the car stuff, shooting stuff, hunting stuff. My girls do all of this with me, so when they get older they are with me, or better yet thier boyfriends. I will know where they are. Keep your friends close, and enemies closer! BTW my girls are crack shots.

Re: 63 Mercury Comet

I know this is old but I am at this point and could use your help.


I have 63 comet convert 302/T5/8" rear end


Did you use cable or hydraulic clutch? which brand/model etc.
Did you keep the current clutch setup or did you have to modify peddle, springs etc. If so how /what did you do/use?


Any pitfalls and or other things you experienced that would lesson the pain for me.


Thank you,
Joe
