    If or when I move, it won't be because of the gays, it'll be because of the quacks. I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure I don't know who 99.9% of the gay folk are I come in contact with during a day. Nor do I care. Love your neighbor, pay your bills, obey the laws.

    I am assuming you are talking about a 1969 fastback (Sportsroof) model and those came with two spacers fitting between the column bracket and where it attaches to the pedal support under the dash. It is an aluminum spacer and it is 1" x1" square and I think 3/8" thick and for some reason Ford wanted the column lower on Sportsroof models. If you remove those spacers the steering wheel will move up about 3/4"-1". That might be enough to help. That's what I did on my 1969 Mach 1. After you remove those spacers you will need to replace the small trim panel below the column and that round/oval rubber trim piece that fits over the column with those for a coupe. But, those are being reproduced and relatively inexpensive. After you are finished. from the engine compartment side of the firewall, make certain the steering shaft is fairly centered in the column. You might need to loosen the column floor mount and readjust it a little.

    You can lose weight... You can also slide the seat all the way back before exiting (if not already) and it will be there when you enter the car. You can also extend the rails for further movement backwards.

    1. Yeah the paint won't have a huge affect but it is just as easy to buy the "right" paint and spray it on if one is painting it anyway. 2. The heat in most of Texas is nothin compared to Phoenix Arizona in the summer. 3. A 147 t stat is pointless in a street car and will usually always be open unless you have a 20 gallon rad, plus even if you got an engine to run at 147 degrees it will do far more harm than good due to premature engine wear, plus the oil will likely not get hot enough to cause any water in it to evaporate. 4. I know because I have been making engines run cool in hot weather as part of my business for over 40 years and I posted several of the differences previously. 5. Flex fans are not used anymore by any knowledgeable people I know, and they are not always a good choice since the blades flatten out at higher revs, thus greatly reducing the amount of air they can flow at higher engine rpms. Plus, the blades have been known to fly off and cut rad hoses or go thru hoods etc.

    Today before it got too hot & humid I installed a new harmonic balancer using the PCE-80007 from LMR, instead of using the 32 year old Ford one. I used I also installed the clutch disc, pressure plate, & the bell housing.

    Leak from radiator

    I would clean all around the fitting with a brass or steel wire brush and determine exactly what is leaking first.

    That looks more like anti freeze than tranny fluid. Radiator is probably shot.

    I realized it was a small block Chevy. But, I can't believe how they made those exhaust manifolds. I guess they took a cue from Roadkill.

    These guys don't restore like you might be accustomed to. But, their show, Roadkill, is great. I watch it every week. They pulled that Mach 1 out of a wrecking yard on an earlier episode. They worked on it in the wrecking yard for a few days to get it running and driving and drove it out.

    The Henry Ford Museum

    Been in the Detroit area for a few days and thought I'd check out the place. While it's not an automotive museum, it does have a lot of cool auto stuff. 1966 & 2016 Lemans winners: I forgot about this tid bit until I saw it, these Lemans cars required a spare tire per the rules of the day. Check out the spare tire: 1965 Indy winner Jim Clark: AJ Foyt car: Mustang I concept car:

    69 Mach 1 Re-restore Restomod

    Saved up for one of these as a Christmas present to myself. Wanted it for years and wondered why I waited so long. The only thing worse that cleaning the underside is doing it on your back. Not the wheels that will be on the car, just using the wheels off my son's 2003 Mach 1 that have been sitting in my garage for two years. Cleaned off all the old undercoating and seam sealer. Removing fifty years of gunk and grime suuuuucks. Added new seam sealer. Still some more prep then prime and paint. I'm on the fence whether to add Raptor liner to the bottom. I don't expect I'll be driving it in anything but the best weather, but the liner is easy to clean and will help hide ugly welds that are coming with the subframe connectors and rear suspension.

    The Henry Ford Museum

    Glad you had a good time. I was there back around 06 or 07 as I was in dearborn for training. I spent some time in the research library. Got a lot of info on the 62 prototype mustang and the GT40. Had some copies made. They were very accomodating. I asked for info on the 62 prototype and they brought out a large folder with drawings, articles and inter-office correspondence. Had to wear white cotton gloves to handle the paperwork.

    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 would stay with body colour, the 2 pack clear is a lot more resistant to oil and brake fluid spills.

    Build date Jan 16, 1969 Brakes Bled, timing set (still runs rough). First time out of the garage in 7 years! Did a shadetree alignment and drove her around the block. Had a lot of squeaks like maybe I did not install bearings right or something. Looking into trailering her to a shop for alignment, checking those squeaks and fine tuning it.

    Changed the Jets in the Holley... to make it run worse I guess. Tomorrow I'll go back to the previous ones. Also installed a new fuel filler neck with the over flow prevention mod Stangs-R-me came up with. Hopefully I'll test that out next week.
