    Falcon Pages

  4. why wont this work?

    Falcon Pages
    I have a somewhat similar set up with a couple of variations. I used the granada disc and all 65 comet/falcon manual components. used a mustang box, but cut the shaft off, modified to fit a borgensen round connector w/ rubber for vibration damping. took the original shaft and cut it to length...

  6. Mustang/Falcon Steering?

    Falcon Pages
    the mustang center link is different (longer) and will not interchange with the falcon/comet. you will have to use the falcon centerlink. the other parts interchange. the centerlink is available new but is kinda pricey, around $150.00. falconparts.com was the least expensive I found when I...
  7. Comet granada disk conversion help

    Falcon Pages
    I did the granada change over on my 64. also upgraded all the steering components to 65 to correct the bumpsteer and geometry on the 64. bought all the parts from falcon parts. com. the change was pretty straight forward. the only item to remove is the steering stops on the strut rods. they will...

    The Garage
    I have a mezzazine at each end. made mine pretty simple, 1 1/2x 1 1/2x 3/16 angle. ran one piece around the perimeter lagged into the wall, ones hanging from the trusses vary in length. put the floor angle doubled back to back for strength. covered w/5/8" osb and used hex 1 1/8 self drillers to...

    Nothing real cool about my shop. since I have been married to the same mrs. for 40 years she has a little say on what happens. told me I couldn't paint any more cars in the garage (she was tired of the fumes in the house), so after we got our 3 girls raised and educated finally bought a home we...

  13. crites 1 3/4 headers

    Falcon Pages
    I have purchased a lot for my fe comet build from crites: the fe kit, fg hood and bumpers, headers, dash delete plates. maybe I'm lucky but all the parts were as described, fit well, and delivered when promised. took an extra week on the bumpers, because as I understand the set out of the mold...
  14. 64 1/2 Mustangs suck DONKEY BUTT!!!

    The Garage
    I feel your pain, try this on for size. on a comet (64) there are no patch panels made with the exception of the floor pans (falcon) and one guy in new york with a fiberglass patch. the qtrs/wheel lips were rusted out and parts cars w/good qtrs are almost impossible to find, so we made ours...
  15. Short shaft steering box in 64 Falcon

    Falcon Pages
    no wobble I can feel or see. the shaft out of the box is only about 3" so that makes it more solid. I am using a coupler and not a rag joint. I would think that if the coupler was, say, 1/2 up the shaft you might have a little, but with it only 3 -3 1/2" from the box it's pretty solid. I guess...
  16. Dash Panel Idea for my 64 Falcon

    Falcon Pages
    I had the dash in the comet painted by a local body shop with this chrome paint that has hit the market. black base with special silvers and clears. looks ok, but not as good as the factory vaccum chrome. bought a dash pad from Mustang Project - Discount Mustang Restoration Parts LED Tail Lights...

  18. 64 strut rods

    Falcon Pages
    are you running something other than stock spindles and drums? if so then either will work. if you are going with granada spindles and disc you will have to cut the curved end of the strut rod for turning radius. other aftermarket may also require cutting. I converted all my 64 to 65 parts...
