I hooked up the tow bar today, and ran around the neighborhood. Once I felt it was working well, I did 5-6 miles on the freeway, and it worked great! It's very hard to tell the car is even back there, except when you begin to slow down. Tracks beautifully, and no strange shimmy, or movement, like I get with a car and car trailer.
After I got home I dug out my wrinkle walls and drilled and screwed the beads to the rims inside and out. Then did a quick check on the engine, as I've had a low speed miss recently. Not sure how it happened, or why it wasn't worse. but found #4 plug wire was nearly broken in two inside the heat sleeve when I pulled it off the plug! I slid the sleeve back, and maybe 1/3 of the insulation was holding it together. The MDS box must have been jumping the gap, and firing at higher rpm's. Replaced it with a spare used plug wire, and will order a better set of wires after the drags.

Looks much better,and you don't have those 5 lb projectiles in case of an accident,
post a picture of the Fairlane I had a 62 with a 221 v8 it is the only one I remember with that engine most were 6 or 260
they were yellow the 260 was red and 289 blue exept Hi Po they were black with Gold valve covers and Air filter housing some hi po had chrome,
Later I think all were blue
I think this is right to many years ago LOL

The P.O. of my '62 Fairlane, had some speaker boxes in the rear floor board that I moved to the package tray so my passengers didn't have to straddle them. I have hated them there ever since I put them there so I yanked the package tray out and found two nice speakers mounted in the frame work. The vinyl covering had come loose as well so I dumped the speaker boxes and decided to recover the tray and use what was in there. Not perfect but 400% better than before IMHO.
Next step is to hook the speakers up correctly and than make some sound dampener boxes to go behind them so the noise won't bother my spare tire.

I too get unsigned private messages.
I want to state for the record that it is anatomically impossible for me to do what so many have suggested I do to myself in the past. Certainly not at my age anyway.

Also, the short section of pipe from the collector flange to the muffler body would have had a more severe angle to get the clearance and the outlet end of the muffler would be pointing down instead of near level. As you well know, every time we have to modify a part, it involves compromise.

I finished pulling the rear end out of the convertible today. The engines, transmissions, and rear end are leaving Wednesday.
It is about time to get back to work on the sheet metal.
Gonna catch me a sunset.
