Magnum 500

It's good question. The 77-79 Thunderbirds were manufactured as a mid-size luxury vehicle, sitting on a Torino chassis. So, naturally, the factory wheels were appointed to enhance the luxury look....

Found a wiper switch for the 77-79 Birds. But as luck would have it, I have to fly out of town tomorrow morning early and won't return until the weekend. So sorry for the wait. But if you wish, go...

Timing chain

My T-Bird has a 3023 and I have changed mine out 4 times (car has 400,000 miles on it). So, no comparison. But it does sound like you will experience a power boost with the new chain. I've owned a...

78 or 79?

I wonder if the door was replaced prior to your owning the car and this is why you have 78 VIN but 79 door codes??? If that is the case, you would go for a 78 unit. I am not sure what you mean by a...

If a car sits for a long period of time, there tends to be a build up of gunk in the gas tank and lines and carb. I would remove the tank, clean it out thoroughly, blow out the gas lines, and try to...

Stalling Issue

How long has it been since the carb was rebuilt completely? I have professionals rebuild my 1979 302 carb--it's an easy one for them--and the results have always been palpable.
