    tom,
    Sorry I never answered your question in my 'vistor messages' back in '12. Did you find someone to do your engine? If not, Mike at Rank Performance did mine. Again, sorry but I rarely check that part of my profile. I was just coming in to update the location now that I'm out in Tampa.

    The shipping cost as much as the sale price of the seat. Unless you can find a local buyer they're not as much in demand. I was going restore the bench seat I have and put it in my wife's convertible but bought a TMI console instead.

    I only know of one OEM spacer with the water passage. I had a picture of the spacer that I listed with the post. I found the picture doing a Google search. New 63 68 Ford Carburetor Spacer 6CYL 64 65 66 67 Fairlane Bronco Mustang 6 Cyl | eBay I've used a phenolic spacer on top of my OEM spacer on my coupe before I found a phenolic spacer with a PCV port on Summit Racing's website. On my wifes's 65 w/ the I6 200 I'm going to add a phenolic spacer to raise the carb a little higher. Ford does make a six cylinder spacer with no water passage. I don't know what the application is though. Ford 6 Cylinder Carburetor Adapter Spacer Vacuum Port | eBay

    Tom.in my recent posts we have been discussing i6 200 carb spacers-you referred to the factory OEM spacer-are you talking about the one with water inlet and outlet? Should be a drawing somewhere showing the spacers--This one(Corey's) does have the one with water in and out..Is there some other factory spacer?? He has the Phenolic spacer on the way..

    Sorry Matt. I'll be back in Korea during that event and won't be back to the states until mid June. I wish I could go. My coupe is running better than it did when it was new.

    Tom,
    Are you planning on going up to the 50th BDay event in Charlotte? If so, me and my dad (which is flying down from VT) will be heading up there for it. Not sure if you want to caravan up, but it may be worth it.

    Let me know. We haven't solidified any details. I've just recently booked my lodging and registration for the event.

    Tom,
    I'm having two new local guys that came recommended by Mike Callagy at Callagy Tires. Their names are Mike and Matt. Their business is Rank Performance. They are quite knowledgeable and so far have been doing a very good job keeping me satisfied.

    I'm one that likes to check in, get pics, and converse. They have made time for me all along the way. When the engine is done, hopefully next week, I'll let you know. So far their rates are fair and competative, but really I just really like the way they do business.

    They are working on getting their name out, including a website that is up for basic knowledge of their business. When they do the build next week, I'll be setting up a timelapse of Mike doing the entire build in the shop. The 2-3 day assembly will boil down to 6-9 minutes worth of video. I'm very excited.

    When you get back, hit me up. Love to get you and your wife up here for the Thursday cruise ins at Five Guys Burgers & Fries (3rd thursday of the month).

    ~Matt

    Hey Tom,

    My name is John and I stumbled across a post from you from about a year ago where you were looking for a mirror base gasket for a C3ab17743 mirror. Did you ever find one?

    It looks like the one I'm restoring. May I ask you some questions in the future?
