Re: (At age 16 and on) Cristian’s 1962 Mercury comet s-22 build thread

Hmm... don't rule out that new foot dimmer switch. Seems to me the entire headlight current goes through that switch and back to the lights. Seems once I lost all my headlights (dims and brights) and had to keep pressing my foot against that switch to keep them on. You may have a bad switch or may h...

Re: (At age 16 and on) Cristian’s 1962 Mercury comet s-22 build thread

Nothing wrong with wanting to learn how something works. I've torn apart many perfectly good working things just to see how/why they work. And nothing more frustrating than the thing you've been trying to fix suddenly start working WITHOUT me knowing what I did to fix it. So I tear it back apart to ...

This is not my field of expertise, but I don't know any reason why you'd want to run a 160. If it were me, I'd move up to a 185 and see what happens. Good news is, it's not a difficult swap if you have to change it again for some reason.

Re: (At age 16 and on) Cristian’s 1962 Mercury comet s-22 build thread

This warms my heart: "I was planning to get an electrical guitar after I saved up some money (since I’ve been interested in a while), but I think I will instead buy myself a welder, mask and an angle grinder to Replace rusted areas of the mainframe." A man's got to have his priorities and you certai...

Light Blue vert is a 67? That may be the first 67 we've had. What's the setup 289? 390? Engine photos would be nice :)

Agreed, Glad to see the tradition continues despite all that is going on. If everybody drove a Comet, the world would be a better place.

Re: Introduce myself

Welcome aboard. Love to see photos of this project, so if you need help posting, please ask. And I'm sure there are a few of us who will want to see the car in person someday, even if it does mean making the sacrifice and making a trip to Hawaii ;)

Re: Can’t remember where these go.

I just love that on the Comet forum somebody can post a random picture of some obscure part and within an hour somebody has explained exactly what it's for. Blows my mind. Good on ya!
