SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Trans am brake parts

Were the larger than factory break calipers used I believe in trans Am competition calipers from a T bird and/or Lincoln and the spindles for these calipers that were used were installed with a tapered bushing to make the smaller factory pieces work does this sound close ?

A 2018 F150 with the 3.5 ecoboost can tow 13,000 lbs.
My F250 2001 diesel weighs 8500#, and I have weighed my truck with my 24' attached and my 69 mach 1 inside with a total weight of 17,500#. 

So take the former from the latter and my trailer(not aluminum) and my mach weighs 9000#. So you're telling me that an ecoboost F150 can pull 4000# more?  That's like another 69 mach 1+.

That is hard for me to believe, JMO.
The 3.5 liter is only 214 cubic inches. Max tow package (3.55 rear gear) with the 3.5 EB can pull 13k and mine right now is getting 18mpg driving around town. Max towing also includes a transmission oil cooler in addition to being a 10 speed and a engine oil cooler.

If you look at his other auctions the hood for the car the pump came from is for sale too.

Hum? Not specifically with a US number. I might be able to ask a local cop if he knows but that is 50/50.

In NYS you are required to "wear a seatbelt". That generally means the combination shoulder harness/seat belt.

The Shelbys are the only car I can think of with an additional shoulder harness in addition to a seatbelt.

If I can get that info, I'll pm you here on this forum. What I expect the cop to say is that yes they agree and that there is just this extra box that you check on the summons that indicates the infraction is "not wearing the restraining device, i.e., harness".

That's because it is a casual inquiry. What I could do is take a picture of the shoulder harness in my car and walk into the local precinct and ask the desk sergeant? We'll see how this goes.
Deluxe seat belts got you a set of shoulder belts in a non Shelby mustang at least in 68 it did.
