  4. 1971 Mustang exhaust smells like gas.

    Classic Tech
    Hello, sportsfans. I guess it really doesn't matter if it's a 71 mustang or a 76 Maverick. I don't think it has as much to do with the car as it does the car-buretor. Or the timing. Letsee... Heres a small list of things I'm experiencing with my Edelbrock 500 cfm and my 302. 1) It wants to die...

    Hey all, I am installing a new Edelbrock Performer intake and Edelbrock 600cfm carb on top of a 351w in a 1965 mustang. The hood is one of those eleanor style hoods but underneath doesn't really seem to provide much more space than the stock hood. My question is: before I install this...
