Bills? Lol. Don't know nothing about no bills, we only know mustang parts. Nawh, I feel you. It gets expensive really quick. I don't know how many thousands my brother has in his 66 so far. It's almost ready for bodywork tho.

Getting paid $8.25 an hour isn't gonna speed up my process either haha. Yeah it's those things I gotta pay before 3 or they shut off my phone then I won't be able to go on ME every 5 minutes. I bought my car for $3000 and so far I've invested around $1500 and haven't even scratched the surface

I actually had a pony lol I had just started working and it was the first car I bought myself. My dad helped me get my 01. But yeah I got the car, the most important piece, now I gotta invest time and money into it. With your guys's help, I'm gonna make my friends jealous

I'd say you already are. Owning 2 ponies is def a good way to do that.

Most of my friends are those Honda type people. And the friends that are mustang fanatics have GT's, a cobra, and 5.0's. they are impressed with the 66 though lol

Bought the tank kit! And I was looking for a picture of my friends cobra, but all I found was some of his tailights lol

Okay, so I haven't forgotten about my car. I've just been waiting for my gas tank to arrive. You all can stop holding your breath in suspense it's almost here lol. Well I'm kind of disappointed with CJponyparts for using FedEx. I've been waiting for a week and the package just touched down in California today. I know it's not a LONG way, but the estimated delivery was Feb 25th. I'm just going to pick up the tank myself from FedEx. And as soon as I get it I'm gonna see if my baby runs. I'm replacing everything basically. Rebuilt carb. New hoses. Two new filters. Brand new fuel pump. Brand new sending unit, and brand new tank. The only thing I didn't replace was the metal fuel line under the car, that one was cleaned out with compressed air. My $40 dollar fix turned into a $300 restoration anyways I'll update you guys tomorrow or later on tonight. Depending on when FedEx calls me to tell me that my package arrived

FedEx shipping just sucks I guess (no offense if anyone's affiliated with them). Next time I'll ask them to go UPS. AM uses UPS and everything gets there when that say it will.

Okay. So I picked up my tank at FedEx today m. It felt like i was back in the Christmas of '98. But I placed my tank down and the holes don't align good should I just drill holes where it doesn't align right? And also there was this clip and a bolt. Where do those bad boys go?

What kind of sealant can I use? Okay so I installed everything. Carb gets gas now but the seals on the carb leak and one of the diaphragms squirts out gas when the throttle opens. And it also chokes a lot. Any input?

Just any body sealant you can pick some up at a local body shop and for the carb thats the accelerator pump squirting gas in its suppose to do that and sounds like it just needs to be tuned to me

Alright I'll try that. I'm not taking her out on the road just yet but almost. Okay and I took off the carb and loosened the screws and tightened them again. This time double checked and this time it didn't squirt gas so I'm all good. Car turns on good now. She sounds like a million bucks now. I have to take her out for a run tomorrow. This carbon monoxide is making me loopy in this garage lol. So she runs. Now I have another problem. Whenever the throttle opens too much too fast, she chokes. But if I open the throttle slowly it goes fine. It sounds like she's not getting a good fuel/air mixture and that's killing the motor. Any suggestions?

That sounds like the accelerator pump may not be working right. With the engine off, if you hit the accelerator does gas squirt? It should, as Travis was saying.

Well it did squirt, but it squirted out of the gasket. I tightened up all the bolts now it doesn't squirt out the gasket. I can rev it but if I press the accelerator too fast it'll choke.

Here's the clear filter I was talking about. It looks pretty cool

I finally got her out of the garage with her own power. She drives rough and it took a while for the transmission to engage I had to step on the accelerator a lot for her to move. Then I drove around the block an it felt good. Runs rough but I love her. Still has that acceleration/choke problem. Hopefully I find a solution soon. Anyways thanks guys she really appreciates it

How do you adjust the carb? I checked the tranny fluid and it was dry. What tranny oil would you recommend?

Now you can see the stuff running into the carb with your filter and after you make the adjustments to your carb, you will have it purring like a kitten. Looks awesome.

I've been trying to adjust the carb. But unfortunately it's not working >.> haha thanks though. The thing is squirting gas right into my manifold. I'm just going to get a new one. Or try that 3.8 new edge motor swap I was thinking about haha

It does, but I guess the gaskets leaking and it squirts gas outside of the carburetor onto the outside of my really hot exhaust manifold. I don't thing gas is supposed to squirt outside the carburetor onto really hot engine parts lol

BahahAhaha. Ding ding ding. We have a winner! That would be correct. It's a shame to have to buy one after you have rebuilt that one. If you can find one cheap, that'd be great. Maybe rockauto or something.

They don't make the Autolite 1100's anymore. I've been looking around and you basically have to send it to get rebuilt professionally. My guess is that its about $300 because a new universal carb is about $500 I just spent $500 on two engines and a '97 mustang shell. I think a 3.8 engine swap is more feasible at this point now
