    I have a 65 Ford Galaxie with a 390 from a 68 f250 (I believe) it’s got a 67 autolite 2100 carb on it and I just rebuilt it and put it on but the base gaskets I’ve found locally for the 2100 carb are paper thin but you can get the thicker style base gaskets for the 2150 I know the 2150s base...

    My 1964 Mercury Montclais has the 2 barrel 266 hp big block FE engine. The car has sat for twenty years, since July of 1986. I've only had it a week. I started it up Saturday, 2 days ago, and I heard what I thought might have been piston rings scraping on the drivers side of the engine. But when...

    I noticed an oil pressure drop, and decided to check my oil. The dipstick measured perfect, and the oil is as clean as a whistle, however, when you take the top fill cap off of the valve cover it is a different story. Also, I notice it is blowing oil onto my intake manifold. At first I thought a...

    Hello Gents, I was given a convertible 1966 Ford Galaxie 500xl with a 2bbl 390 and have been reading posts for a couple of months now. Finally, I decided to step in and ask a few specific questions. I'm not looking to take the car to the drag strip, but it would be nice to get at least 400hp...

    Just curious to see if anyone has ever put one on their old Galaxie. Mine is a 1968 with a 390 and FMX automatic. I've been looking at the TransGo kits. Are they worth it? Are they a pain to install? Any thoughts or suggestions?

    I have a 1968 Galaxie 500 with a 390 that has a 2bbl intake and carb. I'm about to buy a 4bbl intake for it to help it breathe better. I have been looking into a Demon carb that is equipped with electric choke. My 2bbl that is on there (a Tomco remanufactured from my employer Oreilly's) is...

    I had problems with my alternator light on my dash flashing at me for while. I wrote it off as a faulty light because it would flash when I hit bumps. I was in the parts store parking lot when the battery gave up the ghost. So I replaced the battery and alternator (using the v-belt pulley from...

    I'm replacing my bent pushrods, which seems to be common with 390's such as mine. The Chilton manual I am using says to line the pointer up with the "xx mark" on the damper. I have cranked the engine, turning the damper, and have not seen anything at all that resembles an "xx" mark. It has the...
