    Not sure what you mean with your question. Ben’s is still selling the 5 lug disc brake kit for the front and is now selling 5 lug axles for the rear, you can also send an axle off and Moser will make a 5 lug axle for you. 1″ lower Detroit springs work great and the rear sway bar with the bracket mods shown in another post also works well, car handles nice. MC comes on close to the floor but works well once you get there.

    Well Joe you’re right, the base has a V front and back. Pretty good repro for quality but the method of retaining the glass is a little different, it only uses one large recess instead of a recess for the glass and another for the split ring as the orig mirror does. The glass is slight larger and will not fit the orig, have to drive out the ball stud to use the top with the old mount so I just cut my losses and used Jim’s old mirror glass in my mirror body. Hey, it goes with the condition of the car anyway. Worth a try but no go. Anyway, I may sell it or keep it, haven’t decided.

    Damn, I kept looking at that picture and thought, does it have a V, and then thought, no it’s just a reflection. Well it get’s here next week but at least it should have a good glass I can use or maybe the complete head. The glass shops out here want $25 just to cut a round glass!

    We have a couple of blocks apart right now, one each. I’ll be at the shop either this weekend or early next week and check it out. I’ll let you know.

    Checked with the machinist and also uses beefier rods and longer head bolts.

    My understanding is that the Turbo engines have deeper bolt holes/longer bolts for the main bearing caps. I believe there are some other small differences but they escape me at the moment. I’ll check back if I can find the info.

    Sorry Jim, not looking to sell, looking for a mirror glass for my good frame for my car. Like to talk on that glass. Send you a PM.

    I have a good original door mirror like the picture in the first post, but the glass is broken out. Did I see somewhere there was common aftermarket mirror with the right size glass that could be removed and glued into the 62 F85 mirror?

    Glass shops can cut mirror for it but it’s not “automotive non-glare mirror”, they say it diffuses headlights and glares at night.
