    How Do I Back Pins Out of This Connector?

    This is a cruise control (turn signal) lever plug. I need to remove the plastic connector from the wires in order to slide them down through the column for installation. How do I back out these "pins". Two are male and two are female. THANK YOU

    '70 Rally Dash Gages + Turn Signals Work/Don't Work ???

    Summit Brand Plug Wires are JUNK!

    Just a warning to my fellow FBBO members. I have a set of Summit Racing brand 8mm silicone suppression plug wires that are 2-3 yrs. old with maybe 500 miles on them. I'm doing a tune up & found 2 wires' outer coating split! One wire about 6" long split and another wire maybe 10" long split...

    4spd w/Cruise Control - Clutch Off Switch?

    I know cruise control didn't come on 4-speed cars from the factory. It didn't come on 440 six pack motors either, but this isn't stopping me. I've got the whole setup (for an automatic) 75% installed....but I realize that I need to have a "clutch pedal/cruise disengage switch" in addition to...

    Firewall Wiring - Tick-Tock Tach + Cruise Control???

    1970 Roadrunner For cruise control, where does the wiring pass through the firewall? In the one picture I've seen, it "looks" like it's going through the hole where the single gray wire is for the tick-tock tachometer (original on my car). I'm trying to retrofit cruise control. So, does...

    70 RoadRunner Rally Dash Bulb Twist-Sockets - Where to Buy?

    I've got a 70 Road Runner with the rally dash & one of my dash bulb twist-sockets is bad. Where do I get another one? It seems like the last time I looked they had similar ones at the local auto parts store, but not my exact size. Any help is appreciated.

    Newer Direct Connection Distributors - Mechanical Advance Limiter

    This is probably old news to everyone except me. I bought a new DC distributor last year & I finally am working on my timing & fuel curves. I bought a FBO mechanical advance limiter plate, but when I gutted my distributor, I found that this newer one has that feature already built in. Great...

    Ignition Wire Suggestions? (that won't pop off plugs)

    I've got a 440 with headers using an old MSD-6A and MSD Blaster coil. My wires are MSD Heli-Core 8mm and I've added 2-3 Direct Connection "90-deg. angle" plug ends.... those work GREAT by the way where you have header clearance issues. My problem is that the wires pop off the plugs on a...
