I've looked at a few self alignment tool sets over time. Didn't get one.....yet.

If you would buy one of those speed shop magnetic base alignment tools, you will be able to align any and all car from now on. Very simple to use. Even a Vega owner could do it. At about $100 a real good tool to have.

The front end alignment spec I listed would be fine on the street. Might be a little hard to steer a very slow turn's. Would be better than a wobble.

Which reminds me.... what camber/castor would you have on a car that you plan on running as a street/strip car ?

You need at least 6 deg negative castor for straight line racings with 0 deg camber and ;D 1/16" tow in on a race car.

A lot of the stuff on ebay isn't really parts for your car but pictures and junk etc.

General Help- Ask the Experts... / Re: Carpet kit
« Last post by Pintopower on Today at 02:45:24 PM »
Is that just with the wagons or in general?

With respect to the floor pans, the issue relates to all of them. They are hard to get to fit properly. I have tried a few brands and like @dick1172766 says, SCC makes a good one but it is nothing even close to the one I had installed. Looks better, feels better, sounds deadening is better and the finish is out of this world. If you want a nice kit, get SCC and confirm the difference in floor pans with the company. Do not get anything from eBay. If you want it better than original, find a place that will not make that idiotic split line through the middle of the car and you will be all set.

The T-5 in the stock location will require making the hole for the shiftier larger and in most cases move it forward closer to the dash .. Some people have found that using the an S-10 tail shaft housing and the speedo gear assembly from the Ford T-5 to create a shorter transmission that can use your speedo system without changing the floor boards .. Some people on TurboFord have done it or you can do a search.

Yeah I tried to take a 2x4 at the top of the hatch and give it a few good whacks but don't want to miss and shatter the window.

Sounds like you have a VERY slight v in the trunk lid after the bo-bo with the wrench. Work on that.

SSC Enterprises sell a good carpet and will add 3" to each side if you ask for it.  Their a Mustang II store but sell Pinto stuff too.  http://www.sscenterprises.net

Your Project / Re: New project... 1980 Runabout
« Last post by r4pinto on Today at 01:15:51 PM »
I've seen those before as well & may have to invest in one eventually. For now brake fluid in the bottle with the line in the fluid will work fine lol.

As for the car I got the transmission seal and driveshaft installed. Had to jump the car, since the battery was low but once I did the car ran somewhat decent. I really need to replace that carburetor. The 77 never did run too well on it but better than nothing. Once I got the car to stay running I got transmission fluid added to the car. I also added gear lube but need to get another bottle. The hatch seal I installed did not work so I will be buying one with a bigger seal area. The one had no compression to it with the hatch closed, so hopefully a different one will.

If all goes according to plan I will be driving that car to work tomorrow. It's suppose to rain & I want to test out the wiper motor. I replaced it but want to make sure all is well before a long trip. If it's going to act up I want to be close to home.

I've used one of those little air compress'r that you carry in your car to add pressure to the brake system for brake bleeding. Worked like a charm. Just make sure the master cylinder does not run dry.
