Re: 1965 Comet Caliente (little red)

One small thing to check. loosen the nuts on the carb studs .take the throttle return springs off & basically make sure the butterflies are opening easily with no resistance as you snug up & tighten carb studs down. sometimes the carb gets cocked slightly on install . always tighten the carb down fi...

Re: How to attach Mercury Head on emblem?

I'd probably just epoxy it on. or maybe a very small tap ,drill & tap the stud that was riveted on,not the guild pin. would need a squared off tap to get threads deep enough. but the glue would be easier.

Re: Dan's 65 Cyclone project !

I almost bought a needle scaler when I took off the factory undercoating behind the fenders . it was really thick in places & looked like it was going to be a pain to get off but I pecked around with a screw driver & it was so brittle I popped it all off with screwdriver in just a little while ,30 m...

Re: 65 comet polyurethane bushing kit

I couldn't figure out where the 3/4 was. didnt say 3/4 at top but said 1-1/2 x 3/4 under description. maybe it was a typo ? Am I missing something ?

Re: 65 comet polyurethane bushing kit

Man those measurements sure are confusing. it needs to say which is OD & ID . & needs to say same thing at top as it does at bottom. I like products with specs drawn on a pic of the product like a blueprint showing exactly what is each numbered measurement is on the description. but good luck hope i...

Re: 1965 Comet Caliente (little red)

I couldn't get my mirrors exactly even but I have never thought much more about it & really hard to see them at same time unless you're in a tall building above it . But I got them as close as I could & still be able to see some out of the pass side for backing up. I didn't want interference with th...

Re: Can I fit 15×8 Magnum Wheels on the rear of a 1965 Comet Convertible?

No mine are 15x10 wheels but like Fred said I did a lot of changes, moved the frame rails in & widened the wheel tubs. But for a factory car it would depend on the back space , & getting the right backspace on the wheel of choice can be tricky .& probably need to remove the axle bump stops on the in...
