Dart Horsepower In A Box
Dart has created complete top end packages, which include Dart heads and COMP Cams camshafts, along with virtually everything else you need to make your short-block or crate motor really come to life. You may remember how we built up a Dart SHP 400 in our January issue using the SHP short-block and Dart's top end kit. We still had to collect all the valvetrain gear, but now Dart has simplified things further by offering a limited number of power systems that include the valvetrain gear too. Dart knows that selecting components that will work together properly can be a challenge, and if you don't get it right, performance will suffer. Dart's Horsepower in a Box kits are the result of building and testing hundreds of engines to ensure optimal performance in an affordable package.
You get a pair of legendary Dart cylinder heads, fully assembled with premium stainless steel valves, spring, retainers, and related hardware, an aluminum intake manifold, valve covers, gaskets, fasteners, and spark plugs, along with a COMP Cams camshaft, lifters, and timing set. Cylinder heads are available in cast iron or aluminum, and hydraulic flat tappet or roller lifter camshafts are available. It's a money-saving, time-saving move that will plaster a smile all over your mug!
Ididit Tilt Column
Ididit's all new Ford top shaft and Ford turn signal switch steering column for the '67 Ford Mustang is a direct bolt-in that includes year-specific style knobs and handles. They also include the male and female plugs with terminals, and it uses the stock underdash mount with a pre-packaged floor mount, making this a slam-dunk same-day install. Ididit's new 1967 Mustang column will accept a stock Mustang steering wheel or an aftermarket wheel with an adaptor. This era-specific Mustang steering column will work with either your stock box or an aftermarket rack, so specify what you need when ordering. The all-new floor shift, eight-position tilt, American-made column is available in paintable steel, chrome, and black powdercoat.
Engine Bay CloseOut Panel
Undercover Innovations now has engine bay closeout panels for all early Mustangs, including "Eleanor" style '67-68 ponies. What started out as a fix for overheating has become a new way to add some class to an overlooked area on any car. All Undercover Innovations panels are made with aircraft-grade anodized or polished aluminum. Many different stock designs are available (including for GM vehicles), but customizations are also welcome. Pricing is quite reasonable too; the one shown (for '67-68 Mustangs) runs about $89.
Yukon Grizzly Locker
This new Grizzly mechanical locking unit from Yukon Gear & Axle features an 8620 chrome-moly case and 8620 chrome-moly internals for added strength. According to Yukon, the Grizzly Locker's patent-pending design reduces common locker failures. Yukon Gear & Axle says these lockers are designed to stand up to the huge power and tall tires of today's performance vehicles, with the internals being hand-fitted for faster engagement. They're targeted for drag racing, circle track racing, off-road, and towing. Applications include Ford 9-inch (28- and 31-spline), Chrysler 11.5-inch, GM 11.5-inch, D44, GM 14-bolt truck, and Rockwell 2.5 ton, with more applications coming soon. All units are assembled in the USA. We checked around on the web, and found the Ford 9-inch unit with 31-spline axles for $485 from Randy's Ring & Pinion.
