This is my pride and joy,tis a 66n ford Fairlane 2 door hardtop.
this car has been around for a long time in many guises,it is now
in a race car style so it would be a shame to not try to race it.

i like it.

First off hope all that went to Dragstalgia had a very good time.
i was hoping to make it but have been fighting reliability problems
for some time now,( don't you just love buying someone's car and
inheriting all his problems :().
So after the elec fans fried the relay,then the holley fuel pump
started to be intermittent,bought new one then no power to the
MSD box,i thought sod it getting pissed off now,so dived in and this
is what i found lurking behind the dash.

So no wonder i was having issues,there were wires
that started out one colour then ended up going thru 3
wire and colour changes,so one stiff jack daniels and ripped
it all out to start again.
Bought a rebel wiring 9+3 wiring kit from Langy's rod shop
which i must say is awesome even a elec numty like me can not
get it wrong as all the wires are labeled every 6 inches.
so will see how we get on,will keep you all posted with my success
or failure.
