Thanks Flashed! Iím really hoping that Iím getting close(r). Iím hoping to get it running and driving before the end of the month. Iíve been invited to a vintage ford groups run of the Dragon. I want to do this something fierce. Even if I just putter through it.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

I got the PTC convertor today. I also received the US Shift Quick 4 controller this week.

But, I’m still waiting on the Lokar shift shaft, so I’m stuck on hold until it gets here. I have to have it so I can get it installed before I’ll be able to install the transmission. I ordered it well before I got the other stuff... AGGRAVATING.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

Made a list of parts and jobs I still need to work on to make the Falcon doneíish once I get the transmission installed. So, I Ordered Redline ATF, an external trans cooler, trans pan with a drain plug (I hate pulling a pan full of fluid).

I also test fitted the transmission controller harness and started investigating how hard the new front seat covers are going to be to install. I figured out really quickly that my original seat foams are HAMMERED, so I ordered new ones from Distinctive and called my buddy who does interior work. Iíll be taking these to him next weekend, as these look to be quite a PITA.

If the stars align, I may have the Falcon ready for Tail of the Dragon in November.

I got the aluminum driveshaft back from being shortened, rebalanced, and new ujoints. Almost all the parts are here. Maybe I’ll have it in by the end of the upcoming weekend. #fingerscrossed#

Thanks Dale!

Tracking #ís seem to lead me to believe that Iíll have all the necessary parts by Thursday evening. If thatís the case, Iíll be busting my hump to get it done by the end of the weekend.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

Well, everything except the DAMN shift shaft is here. The SECOND place I ordered it from seems to have bs’ed the sale too. So, if I don’t have an accurate tracking number by tomorrow I’ll be held up again.

Re: 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon aka Martha

Still no pictures, but I finally received the shift shaft today. So I got it installed, and the new pan with a drain plug put on. I also got the new 10” PTC convertor installed. Got the trans off the engine stand and back on the trans jack.

But before I could put the Falcoon back on the lift I needed to do my 6k mile service on my daily driver. So I changed the oil & filter, rotated & balanced the tires, and checked the related filters. Once that was done I got the Falcoon back up on the lift. That’s when I realized that it’s gonna take more than one person to get it stabbed back in. I’m afraid that I’m going to have to do some trans tunnel work to make this biga$$ trans fit.

So I shut down the shop, took a much needed shower, and now I’m watching motor trend. I’ll get back on it tomorrow.
