  1. I got the message on MS Edge, but works fine on Google Chrome. Doug
  2. I've still got a couple of vernier calipers at work, need glasses now to read them though ... much prefer the more modern DIAL type. Still don't own a digital version yet. Doug
  3. Well that simplifies things !! A 1969 Mustang Zinc Plated Neck with insert installed is $97.00 + $14.00 USPS = $111.00 Total USD funds. I've attached the Price List in case your car is not a '69 which has all the details including my contact info and also has pictures. Also attached are the instructions I follow in modding these necks in case you want to do the mod yourself on your existing filler neck. Thanks, Doug Fuel Filler Neck & Insert Kit Price list.pdf Fuel Filler Insert Instructions-R5.pdf
  4. I'm still doing them, just not advertising. Shipping a complete modified neck to Germany is expensive, as I found out when I quoted a guy earlier this year. Shipping cost of one vs. two or three was the same so he was trying to find a few others to share the shipping cost. Have not heard back from him though. Here are the shipping costs I got for one neck to Germany back in March: Priority Mail (6-10 Days) ... $83.00 USD or First Class Package (time varies) ... $44.00 USD BigDuke6 if you are interested, PM me your email address as well as "ship-to" address and I'll send you over all the info as well as the cost of shipping. Doug
  5. Just a further detail ... He has a non-tach dash car, so it can only be for the parking brake light. Seat belt light would be in the gauge cluster on a non-tach car. Doug
  6. BINGO … that was the 1st thing I noticed … thought why would someone spend the time & effort to make headers / manifolds from square tubing ?? Then I saw it was a SB-Cheeby … guess I never realized how WIDE a SBC was in comparison to a SBF. I'd guess '65 Falcon/Comet shock towers are same distance apart as '65-66 Mustang and space for exhaust next to that SBC looks tighter than a BBF in a '67-70 Mustang … his ho-made "Rube Goldberg" manifolds are likely the only way he could make it fit. Car is an original "T" code, guessing 200 Six with 3-on-the-tree. No idea what trans is in it now but shifter was on the floor. Sorry ... thought I posted this in the "GARAGE" forum. Doug
  7. Beat me to it Bob … was going to ask the same thing !! Thanks for sharing OP … very nice car. Doug
  8. Finally got around to changing out the switches today and I now have WORKING LUMBAR !! Found a couple of new-old-stock USA made McGill momentary DPDT switches at work … of course this was AFTER ordering a couple of cheap China made ones off of ebay !! Good ones off of McMaster Carr were $23 each, so I ordered 3 off of ebay for under $14. When I got them and saw how cheap they were, I took a second look at our old switch stock at work and low and behold I found a few mixed in with the SPDT momentary ones I used originally. Anyway, I first tried adding spade jumpers and it just took up too much space and it is tight between the two switches & the AC duct above. The DPDT switches were bulkier to begin with vs. the SPDT switches I had now, so I made a slight mod to both switches before installing. I drilled a small hole at the base of the two spade terminals that wires needed to go to and soldered in 18Ga jumper wires between these added holes and the existing holes in the other two spades that no wire was going to. Then added heat shrink over the 3 unused terminals. 4th pic shows a side view of the original SPDT switches in place and limited space under AC duct. Doug
  9. My 2011 had the mid-range 500W / 8-speaker "Shaker 500" system (vs. Shaker 1000 1000W / 10-speaker system at the top end) My current 2016 has the base 160W / 6-speaker system (vs. Shaker Pro 550W / 12 speaker system at the top end) My wife's 2014 & current 2018 SE Fusion have had the 80W / 6 Speaker system (vs the 210W / 11-speaker system at the top end) Funny, the 1994-04 Mach460 was a 460W / 8-speaker system and it sounded much better than the 500W Shaker system. I do miss the Mach460 (lived with it for 16 years in 3 cars) but I'm perfectly content today with the 2016's system and it does not bother me a bit listening to the 1978 vintage Ford FM radio with 4 aftermarket speakers in the '69. When I do upgrade the '69 radio with an audio input, RCA outputs would be nice so I can add a 4-channel or 2 2-channel AMPS and better speakers. Not looking for high power and thumping subwoofers, just a clean sounding system. Doug
  10. This MOD has been at the back of my mind for many years. I just don't yet have any of my music in a computer or thumb drive as my wife & I are still perfectly content listening to CD's in our cars. That will have to change in a few years when I get my next Mustang as Ford eliminated the CD player in 2019 for the base radio. In order to get one, you have to get a Premium model then add the B&O by Harman Sound System which adds $3,910.00 to the sticker price and obviously a bunch of other "Premium" features that I could care less about in a car. If I could get the B&O system added to a base model, I'd be tempted as I ordered the Mach460 sound system in my 1994, 1998, & 2004 base model Mustangs. So when the time comes in a few years, I'll finally need to put my music on a thumb drive or MP3 player and would then obviously want to add this feature to my stock looking AM/FM in the '69. Doug
  11. OK ... that is MUCH easier ... glad I asked !! Was wondering if maybe this is mentioned in the shop manual and I just missed it. Just skimmed through the Manual Shift Trans section again and there is no mention of this ... so again, glad I asked. Thanks, Doug
  12. So a stock Ford 80's radio or aftermarket ?? I've got a stock 1978 AM/FM in mine … kina wished I saved a 80's vintage Ford AM/FM Cassette when we had various cars with them back then as I've still got all my tapes and have had only a home tape deck to play them on since 2004 when I sold my last car to have a tape deck. Doug
  13. 1969 Ford Shop Manual shows a magnetic drain plug in the bottom of a 4-Speed Toploader trans case … figures, my 1969 Toploader has NO DRAIN PLUG. So, what is the quickest / easiest way to drain one without a plug ?? Here is my thinking: 1) Remove Shifter & speedo cable 2) Put a jack under belhousing 3) Remove crossmember 4) put some support under trans tailshaft (jack stand or 2nd jack) 5) remove trans bolts and roll trans to let it drain out of speedo cable hole or fill hole (hopefully there is enough room in the tunnel to allow this) Thanks,
  14. I was going to say the same thing. Doug
