    I've personally seen a no-cruise car with a factory tripminder. Goofy combos did exist for reasons unknown.

    Carb in 83 would likely be Canadian, but it should be the correct item for a CFI conversion.

    Park Lanes are sexy cars. I tend to like square cars with clean lines though. I have similar feelings about the Dodge Coronets of the mid-late 60s.

    CFI can work. I've driven CFI cars that were as silky smooth as you could possibly want. It does seem somewhat prone to random bouts of running like complete shit for no apparent reason though. ...

    The one in my car came from a super low mileage wrecked P71 that Scott picked up somewhere. The way it drives vs other cars I've driven with the "same" reman box is very different.

    I've made them and I have 2 commercially made sets. Use reasonably stiff wire, some coat hangers are a bit on the feeble side. They're cheap enough to buy too. One set came in the car, when I...

    Mark VIII's were neat. Headlights kinda blew though.

    the threads on the one from Advance were no longer there. I'm guessing some idiot cross-threaded it, or just reefed on it with an impact until it gave up.

    as anemic as the rest of the engine is, I doubt you'd really notice any performance hit from the 2100 vs the stock CFI.


    I don't remember where the PCV line goes either. The spacer is for EGR,...

    Seems to be RPM that really kills it, not so much gross HP. Wind them up and the block starts to flex. If its blowing head gaskets, you're at the edge of where things can start to break.

    Nice. Was this someone else's resto project when it caught fire? Looks like it was still in pretty good shape even after the fire. Not all rusty like they get.
