    That will make a nice donor car for the rebuild. :)

    This is specifically for a 69 and 70 (because they are brother cars) but the concepts apply to all. Frankly the only reason I did the 70 is because it was the first year to have fuse links, and I wanted to see how they did it. I've been working with PA Performance on a 3G alternator and found their instructions woefully lacking. FYI a 1G is generation one, etc., and the 3G is prized for its high amp output at low rpm. The 69 is on page 1, the 70 on page 2 and all the notes (which you really need) are on page 3 of the attached PDFs. 3G alternator wiring pg1.pdf 3G alternator wiring pg2.pdf 3G alternator wiring pg3.pdf

    New Valves in not-new heads

    If you correctly blue the valves i.e. apply it correctly, very thin - tap the valve up and down a couple of times without rotating it and it shows a correct seat, then lapping the valves will achieve nothing extra.

    Wheel Play – Options?

    Unfortunately, steering boxes can not be fully rebuilt, and typically are never as good as new when they are "rebuilt", because the worm gears wear and are not available, and when they wear, the steering will still have play, but some people try to reduce this play by over tightening the adjustment. This being said, a steering box that has play in the bearings will have less play after they are replaced. If one wants to properly rebuild a steering box that has worn gears, they can send the gears out to have then welded and refaced, however, this is a fairly expensive operation, but it shouldn't need to be done again until long after most of us are dead and buried.

    temp increase

    I would confirm the temp is actually high first. Use a secondary gauge to check the temp. As you mentioned oil press is high as well it may be pointing to the constant voltage regulator for your instrument cluster.

    Hey all, wanted to let you know that my documentary released last week on Amazon Prime Video! As some of you know, this has been an 8 year journey for me, with lots of highs and lows. I'm super psyched to finally have it out in the world. There's a bunch of 69 Mustang content in it (although the film is about more than just cars). It's been getting a really great response so far, and I hope you enjoy if you decide to give it a watch. Please rate/review it on Amazon as well if you enjoy it, the more ratings I get, the better chance I have of landing as a recommended video on the front page of Prime Video! Thanks for all the support over the years, and check out the official poster below! -Jason

    NASCAR engine 69 Fastback

    I had the axles machined to accept the new press ins and had to get the disks machined as well to fit over the 5/8 studs. To get it rolling I had some BA Falcon rims with 2nd hand tyres. I had to put the rims on backwards with spacers because of the Falcon offset and shortened housing. Worked out ok and this week coming we're off to the body shop!

    I know it leaves you a bit empty, hurts a little too, I'm sure. Lots of memories and it was associated with someone very close to you. That's part of the reason that I could never sell my Mach. Bittersweet, Ridge.

    No such thing. Best thing to do is to get a molex multi-pin quick disconnect and use wires instead of the circuit card.

    My 69 Mach 1 was build from factory with fixed rear seats. I'd like to keep it stock so i don't lose any value being that i have original engine. trans and seats. Question is can i convert to fold down rear seats with original ford parts and still retain the value?

    69 Front Tire Clearance

    FWIW The rears on my 69 car are 2.5" clear (fender edge to tire) at the front and 3" clear at the rear. So not centered on the stock configuration. Brian

    69 Convertible build

    I've been on this site for a long time and haven't made a build progress page so I figured it was about time I got around to doing it. My car has been off the road since 1975 and was stored inside an upholstery shop since the early 80's. I attached a picture of what it looked like when I first rolled it out of the building, it has 53,000 original miles. I've had the car since 2010 but progress was slow due to moving from Texas to Oklahoma. I had to put the car in storage for a yr and a half after I moved until we bought a new house so I had somewhere to put it. After that I got busy working on the house and building a shop so I had a place to work on my car. Now that most of my non car projects are completed I have been back working on the 69 trying to get the body work finished up so I can get it back on the road. Nearly all the parts that on the car have been rebuilt and are ready to install. I still have a little body work to do but can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    New Valves in not-new heads

    That's a good plan to start with. I used graphite spray for this purpose when I ran the cylinder shop for an engine machining company.

    New Valves in not-new heads

    Lapping them will tell you if everything is correct or not with the seats and valve face. I always lap them but you do not need to blue them and this can actually inerfere with the lapping process. Also, not all cylinder head machinists do the same level of quality, therefore, it is entirely possible that if you have them redone, they might not be as good as the are now, and if this occurs, you would have paid to have a lesser quality job done on them.

    You nailed it. So grateful I thought I was up for another rebuild. I took the old fuel pump off and blanked the hole. Quiet as a mouse. Thanks.

    New floors installed and my son being my helper drilling out the rear seat back spot welds to work on the axle tunnel. I didn’t get any pictures of the repairs made to the tunnel but have some with the seat back pulled out and reinstalled. Replaced the taillight panel also.

    Who has an aftermarket brake booster?

    I used what used to be GPS, now LEEDS. They are out of Niagra NY. I bought the booster, master cylinder and pedal assembly. All pretty reasonable. So far so good. I had to cut part of the dash away to make it fit and they provide the pattern. I think that works with any of these. I still have my FMX in the car. Not sure if that will make a difference. https://leedbrakes.com/

    Finally got a Marti Report

    Wether it’s a 1 of 1 or 1 of 7000, it’s a 69 Stang. It’s 50 years old!! I can’t count the number of people I’ve sent to the chiropractor due to them snapping their heads around to get a glimpse of my 69 or 70 while out for a cruise. What about that poor guy under his wife’s thumb wishing he could have a older Stang. I hear so many comments about people either not liking the coupes and or the fastbacks. It’s 50 years old, still running, still snapping necks, and you know there’s prob not even a third of them still around. All mine, even the 82, are all 1 of 1 in my book and yours should too. Built not bought!!

    It is Time

    Every time I bring her out to work on, I don't. I just want to ride. Started really losing low end power. Really bad yesterday.. Started backfiring a bit. No good launches, not even with a brake torque.. So this morning, time to put in points and new plugs... Wow. I must have really messed up the points after waking her.. there was always a lower end bog, then about what I'm guessing was about 2.5k rpm she picked up... Not any more. She's a tire frying fool now! Makes me very happy! I need to measure dwell so I know how to set this again! Also did a compression test. This was cold and dry after probably 100 mile day yesterday. Can't believe she has this kind of compression! Last oil change I sent off to Blackstone labs.. the lead was high but nothing else.. speculated it was simply the leaded fuel from the 80s.. With this compression and hopefully an upcoming good oil analysis, I'm feeling pretty happy about her heart.. plugs also read beautiful..
