    Horn trouble shooting

    As Mid said there is no fuse: power goes to B on the light switch, through a 15A breaker internal to the light switch, out light switch A, to the horn slip ring, then the horn switch, back out the other side of the slip ring, to the horns, and then ground.

    Horn trouble shooting

    Life just got worse. The wife slipped on the RV steps, fell, and broke both right leg bones above the ankle. I'm now going to have to be house/nurse maid for a couple of weeks on top of everything else...*sigh* Will it ever end?

  5. Hi I have a 351W with FMX and Truetrac 3.5 rear. I'm thinking of installing a Gear Vendors overdrive for better fuel economy and reduced engine wear. If anyone has installed one, appreciate your advice on ease of installation and performance. Thanks Peter

    Chasing a Vibration - Flex Plate?

    Thought I’d give an update on the progress. Been a little slow due work and family but back into it during my 6 weeks of Christmas holidays.....and yes I’m bragging. the balancer said while there was some minor balancing needed he didn’t think it would cause noticeable vibration so hoping the rebuild will happen to jag a fix. I spoke to my transmission guy and the torque converter overhaul shop and they were confident that it wouldn’t be the TC. They showed me how to flush it and there was no metal so looks like it’s not that. Have retained the Crane cam, fitted overhauled 2V 58cc heads and Edelbrock Performer manifold. Decided do go rebore to .020. New pistons, rings, bearing, lifters, valve springs and some other bibs and bobs. Compression is 10.1:1. Hoping to see some improvement off the mark With the changes . Started assembly but now sitting on a plane to Cairns for a week hunting snakes with my young bloke so a weeks delay on finishing. If I still have a vibration it looks like the transmission which is on its way out but fingers crossed I have jagged it withe the engine build.

    What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    Is it a factory tach or aftermarket?

    Upper scoop inserts

    I thought about making matching ones like we did for our new 69 hood out of Stainless steel, but I would still need a pattern to make them.

    Upper scoop inserts

    Yeah, but since I don't have any in my hands, I thought they were ABS. Yes, those are what I need :)

    we wouldnt know, those factory welds would have converted to factory rust here :-)

    Happens on some of the factory welds also, so at least in this regard, they are made "factory correct", lol.

    Mike65's 69 Coupe.

    I acquired the 69 Coupe as an almost bare shell in 2001. Due to life, 4 moves, & a business venture all getting in the way it was not until 2011 when I started working on the Coupe steadily. I have since replaced all the sheet metal that needed replacing, re-wired the car, having the rear re-built, replacing the rear leaf springs, re-built the complete f/e, replacing the steering box, adding a hydraulic clutch system, adding power disc brakes, rebuilding the rear drum brakes, adding a metal trunk divider, & added Fat Mat sound deadener to the inside floor, quarter panels, inside the doors, & firewall, added a center mount parking brake from a 1987 Mustang, & added intermittent wipers.

    What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    Going "mostly" original with the interior and exterior in appearance, but plan to upgrade the suspension, engine, and drivetrain as I mentioned in my Project Progress Forum thread below.... today I finished repairing the interior quarter panels which had some cracks and big nasty looking speaker holes. Also finished up on the Mach 1 rocker moldings. They needed stud repair and bright-work dent repair. Painted them a dark charcoal gray rather than the stock dark argent. We will see if my stud repair method holds once I install them.

    What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    @Rich Ackermann Nice work! Going for a more original theme there. Exceptional job on those sail panels. Me, not going so original. I just finished modifying a 1965 fold down seat set to work in my 1970. Got the fixed panel done tonight. Had the seat back panel done the other day. Just have the curved front panel to finish, which is just gluing the carpet back on and installing the trim. I’ll hve pictures tomorrow
  21. Oetiker makes several types of pinch clamps plus a screw type clamp, so to simply say "I use Oetiker clamps" doesn't help people to understand exactly what type one is using.
  22. I used that image merely as one of several different styles of band clamps that are available as opposed to the cheap looking hardware store worm clamps. I have never seen anyone use the type of clamp I posted on the exhaust.

    1970 Mustang Exterior Lights (turn signals)

    A vendor who I believe to be vintageleds.com, and goes by the handle on VMF of GTONavy stated that he developed side marker lights specifically for 70 Stangs. Here is his reply to my inquiry: Quote: Originally Posted by Mach1 Driver View Post Interesting, so will it behave like a 70, or like a 69? That is, will the side markers still flash alternately with the turn signals? The side marker will blink low to high brightness. Thank you Gary

    69 Vert project

    Trying to pretty it up under there now. I also moved the trans support 2" further back for the 4R70w transmission. If it lines up fine, if not, i have steel.
