Re: Clutch/Transmission rattle

Cancel the cable and get a stock replacement from Maximum Motorsports. Yes it's a big deal.

Re: Lowering Springs W/ C&C Plates

Re: Motor oil

These pans I believe will hold 9 qts and somewhere on this site someone tested it. Unlike the old pushrod motors the crank is contained way up in the block and not partially hanging down in the pan...

Re: Motor oil

The occasional smoke on start up is most likely coming thru the PVC system so your oil separators should cure that. I use the high mileage Mobil 1. Car has 150,000 miles and I have tracked the crap...

Re: Oil Analysis on stock engine at ~130,000 miles

Mine has 150,000 on it and I have tracked the crap out of it for years and my last B Stone report at 140,000 was perfect. Getting ready to do one at the current 150,000 mark.

Re: Coil cover gaskets/grommets.

What I learned a long time ago is to put a dab of RTV on the grommet and a little on either side before you put the coil cover on.

Re: What's a 160k mile Mach worth

Mine had 150,000 miles and I have tracked the crap out of it for 12 years. I keep it well maintained and it runs like new. Oil analysis is great along with compression and leak down. Plugs look great.

Re: Ignition coils

My stockers are still good at 150,000 miles and the general recommendation for replacements are the OEM. I think you will know when one goes bad.

Re: Average life span of clutch?

Leave it alone. So called preventative changing of a clutch makes no sense on a street car and just cost you money. If you do it now it will cost the same thing as if you wait till it wears out.
