    The Muncie was hard to beat, strong with a couple gear ratios. Through the years I used and ended up collecting a few: I have 2 in cars, 13 rebuilt ones on the shelf, 2 more waiting on some case...

    Crutchfield recommended facing to the rear, something about the trunk volume helped the sound quality. Not sure exactly what they meant, but I mounted it that way.

    I’ve used them for years in cars I’ve built. They work well and are reliable, just need to keep them dry. One thing to note is they are not keyed uniquely (eg. all 4 pin connectors keyed the...

    It’s been a little while, but I believe I had to remove the bezel, install the controls, then reinstall the bezel. I think that’s the only way the unit can be locked in place.

    Six weeks for paint, cut and buff isn’t bad, and looks excellent. We cut with 1000, 1500 and 2000 on the black 56 and turned out pretty well, although there are a number of other grits I’ve heard...

    Another possibility Mick, is to make an elongated “pan” located between the motor and radiator (or just above the radiator) and use a flat filter or two on top of the pan, since your MAF sensor is...

    youre right, the lockup was engaged with a simple toggle switch and was used just for hiway cruising. A latching relay could be used and reset with the brake light switch.

    That’s the same value we swapped in. The motor was a carb’ed 383, hydraulic roller, aluminum heads with a 200R4 trans (w/lockup converter on a toggle switch) and 3.23 gears. It worked well.

    My two cents Tony, if the car is driven mostly on the street, the 3000 rpm stall is too high for me. The converter is too loose and the rpm has to change so much just to make small changes in speed,...
