I have been reading back through your thread Fred, I feel better about the hackery I have been doing on my Comet :roll: :P (I actually ended up reading it through a Google search for something else)

See Ya,

Sorry Fred, put 5-bones in the jar...for saying “Posi”...Traction Lok, Trac Lok, limited-slip OR Detroit Locker, Locker...all OK!! :D :lol: :lol: :lol: :mrgreen:

Just being contrary!! If (when?) I need to do something with the pumpkin, 3.50’s get the nod. With a .60-.70 OD they’re the bees knees! I’ve run 2.73’s thru 4.10’s (incl. the current 3.89’s in the heap) and 3.50-3.55 always seemed like the best compromise, even with a 2.95 (vs.3.3x) 1st gear.

Well I guess the day has come, it appears Photo bucket has decided to add me to their list of former users.
It will be interesting to see if I can get close at replacing the right pics in the 200 or posts I have made in this thread :roll:
I even paid them their 25.00 bucks USD a year ( that's a million or so CDN!!!)

Well , procrastination paid off! I see the pics again.
Took Sassy for her last run of the year today. Insurance expires tomorrow and forecast is rain plus I have some other stuff happening.
Picked up the last of the steering parts for my 65 changeover today.
It will only be a partial change to 65 as I'm going to use modified 64 spindles and related outer tierods, 67 Mustang pitman arm for my 1.125 - 64 steering box and the rest being 65 Comet. Plus may have to cut oilpan,,, again
Will post pics and explanation of what and why.

Finally broke down and bought a new set of rear tires. I think this is the first "NEW" set since about 1980 when it got a bias ply set of N50s on 10 inch Cragars!
I worked around tire stores and seemed to stumble upon a deal on the right size used tires when I needed them. The set I just took off I bought at a swap meet 10 years ago.
They had been on a dirt track car so the side walls were a little beat up but decent tread on them. They weren't really wore out but the build date on them was Aug, 2000 !! The car sees a bit of speed quite often so thought it was time. Could very well be the last set I buy for it at that rate,,,,
I haven't had the front and rear tires together since I went to 185/60-14 on the front. Quite the case of big n littles but I like them on the car.

Need to get back to the front suspension now that I have the parts for that too.
