matt167 u have the 200 I6, if so get a set of FSPP headders from www.fordsix.com, and get a compleate stock exhaust kit for a v8 mustang of the same year ( will be 2" ), seems like the kit for a K code 289 would work well, you will need a short custom pipe to connect the driver side pipe to the headder but that's it, all that would entale is cutting the driver side pipe off a little and get some tubing of the right diamater, and have it bent so it fits.

Hi Dan I removed the tailhousing and the govenor, and the weights are free as can be so it seem like I am in for a rebuilt, was worth a try and what a project my boy but dual exhaust and sounded good but sounds like a lot of extra work to do the job know. Intresting experience though ED

Thanks for the message, if they are sticky can I just lube and work them back and forth to free them up,and do I need to drain the pan first then remove the tail shaft. thanks Ed

C4 ford trans not going into 3rd

I would like to know if it is time to replace the c4 trans on my wifes 68 mustang. The trans will not go into 3rd at least for the first 4 miles of driving. I checked vacuum to the moduator or what ever it is called on the trans and it is ok and the vacuum will pull in the pin on that part. Is this rebuild time. thanks for the input Ed ke6bnl
