Oh wow.... the hood has a slight buldge like a SS hood however without the louvers or grille stacks.

I was watching a bunch of films... sorry

The caps were drug to Atlanta all the way from Australia...
The guy said he picked them up with some vintage FORD parts in the 1980's... they are beautiful compared to the foreign repros, they have only been hit once or twice on putting them on and there is not a mark on the taper at all.

There likely was no one in the place who would have known what the pyroceram insulators were, HONESTLY if not for this forum I wouldn't have known.  After talking to him I asked about the other caliper, he traded in on a rebuilt set, he had misplaced this caliper which is why is didn't get sent in.. although he said he still had the 4.11 rear out of the car... caliper to caliper.

I use Meguires or Mother's Leather and vinyl dressing creme for protection.

Use Spray away aerosol non ammonia window cleaner... available at SAMS.
Tooth brush with MINIMAL pressure... using too much pressure causes the bristles to ROLL OVER which negates their ability to clean in the crevices.
All of these parts were out of the same NASTY CONVERTIBLE...

I removed all of the plastic plugs from the original harness threw them in the dishwasher baskets and then changed out the plugs on the repro harness.
You can make a Packard removal tool pretty easily using a 3-4 inch long piece of stainless tig rod, hammer it flat then file the edges until it will slip in the slot on the front of the packard plugs. Push the wire forward in the plug, insert the tool and pull the wire out the back

The wide parting line is the tell tale mark... however Forged cranks ring when tapped as well...

50k... seems to be a fairly decent price for the car.

I put a HBC reproduction Harrison radiator in my old 69 Z28.
The squared rail punches are correct and the Harrison logo is nice and crisp. The biggest issue I found was the  pass tanks were not available in other than a couple of dates.

Didn't the penske cars just pack the posi clutches as tight as possible so they essentially had a spool?
