    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

    My baby turned 50 on 2nd June. And I missed it. I don't think she's talking to me now. Maybe flowers will help.

    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

    temp increase

    The needle does not tell what the actual temp is. Only an infra red gun or gauge with an actual readout in farenheit or celcius will. A non original temp sender will typically position the needle in a different position than a properly working orig sender will at the proper operating temp, then it can so if the needle reads lower or higher with the aftermarket sender, it does not mean the actual engine temp is lower or higher. A gauge with a numerical read out is the best way to determine engine temp.

    temp increase

    Set your CVR voltage so that when the fuel tank is 1/4 full, your fuel gauge reads 1/4. From there, your oil and water temperature needle indications will show what they will be for your actual temperature and pressure. Deviations from those positions will indicate a problem. There is no absolute position for oil and water gauges, only relative positions.

    My new 1970 M-Code Mach 1 Project

    My lower cowl was not salvageable. I also need to replace the footwell or lower part of the firewall over torque boxes, passenger side torque box and the inner passenger kickboard/vent area below the A-Pillar. With all that needed to be done, it just made sense to replace the cowl instead of repairing it. I was able to salvage the original outer cowl with its date stamp. I should give credit to my buddy John who has done this work before, and without his help and experience, I would not have tackled it by myself. Next, we will install the upper cowl and replace lower firewall and floors. Stay tuned....

    I am not sure what you are after, however, if you want Mach 1 wood grain dash and glove box pieces, I have a few. I also have a new wood grain radio bezel and the stainless door trim for the deluxe interiors and many other parts. I am also a scott drake dealer and might be able to save you some money on some parts if you want.

    I would recommend painting the engine bay and the trunk area on the rotisserie, it's a pain to get into the tight spots, but a lot easier on a rotisserie.

    Hey guys! Been a long time... For those that don't remember me, I bought/built a 69 Mustang Coupe back in 08, and I was active on the forum here till about 2014. I had started a documentary project/blog that my Mustang was featured in, and switched over about a third of the way through to a 300zx Twin Turbo to build for road racing (then sold my Stang in 2014 to continue funding the film) - Original Documentary/Z Build Thread The years went by, and I got less and less active on car forums in general... but I was recently closing down an old email address, and came across a PM notification from member RPM on here he sent me 3 years ago! Thought I'd log in and say hello to you all, and let you know that I never gave up on the documentary, and after all these years it's finally finished and I'm planning to independently release it this summer! Was a lot of ups and downs both making the film, and subsequently trying to release it (you can read more here if interested), but I couldn't be more proud of the way it came out. Check the trailer below (feel free to subscribe/visit the website/social media/etc.), and drop a comment here to say hi if you remember me, lol. Hope you're all well! -Jay Despite The Loss Official Trailer

    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.

    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?

    Power Steering Shudder

    My guess would be air in the lines. Did you bleed them when the pump was replaced? What are you using for power steering fluid, type F trans fluid I hope...

    It is Time

    Years. They move so fast. This girl has been in my life 41 years now. So hard to believe. I just drive her. Really need to do suspension work, but I'd just rather drive. This year has been tough. It rains every weekend, so she hasn't seen many road miles. Of the 41 years owned, the open diff has grabbed both tires less times than I can count on one hand. Another finger happened this weekend! Once I am too old to giggle at stuff like this, it's time to take a dirt nap! So special when she goes sideways!

    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!!

    Remote Mirror for 69 Mustang

    +1 on the Torino mirrors if you want remote passenger control. There's a few threads about those out there. That won't solve the vibration problem, though - I get it too at certain times, when my speed and RPMs align just right - the mirrors are a blur. Not sure what can be done for that. You could look at modern mirrors but I think the unique profile of our doors can be a problem when it comes to transplanting just any mirror. Have you thought about just calling the guy in the Chevy on your cell phone and asking him what's back there?

    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..
