  1. In case you ever need to replace it, the part number is D2ZZ-7247-B. If you search that number you will find a number of suppliers that have it. The plastic tab that operates the switch broke on mine, so repair was not possible.
  2. I drove a '69 for years with the top down and only one hold down clamp. Gravity did a nice job of keeping the top down. But my top fit well and laid down nicely in the well. Sure, it looked better with two clamps but I could not find a replacement and the broken one was pot-metal. I suppose a top boot might hold it down a bit - that might be an option..
  3. I changed mine a couple of years ago. At that time I could only find a "69-73" replacement. That one is made up with an extra pigtail on the engine compartment side so it can be used in multiple applications. I remember having to get it off of E-bay (from an eBay "store") and it was around $90.
  4. You can't use Pertronix with a Richporter. The point cam is redesigned (smaller) and you won't get as tight a fit as you need to drive the magnet sleeve.
  5. I used one in my 351W. It left me stranded 300 miles from home. Ended up being a bad condenser. The problem is that you can't buy a replacement condenser that fits the redesigned breaker plate. And Spectra Premium's customer service is less than helpful. I'm sure you can find a condenser for another application that works with this breaker plate, but it's not worth the effort. If you plan on replacing the electronics with Pertronix it may be a good alternative.
  6. colbysunday: what you are describing doesn't sound like "dieseling." Dieseling usually does not last long enough to require an adjustment to the carb to make it stop. The old trick I learned to avoid dieseling (assuming the car is an automatic) is to always turn off the ignition while the car is still in drive (rather than park or neutral). This has something to do with how wide the throttle plate is open in park/neutral vs drive. I've never known an engine to diesel when a motor is shut off this way. It was such a common problem in the seventies with my carbureted Chevys that I am still in the habit of turning off my Mustang while it is in drive.
  7. Does anyone have a source for an inexpensive (mechanical) gauge that can be temporarily connected to check oil pressure?
  8. One of the female connectors in the trunk compartment is probably for the (optional) trunk light.

  12. I saw your last message on your light blue upholstery. Was your interior color originally light blue? I'm trying to figure out what color to paint each part of the interior of a 69 with light blue upholstery (such as A-pillar trim, console, the metal trim above the door panels, etc), There appear to be three different blues for interior paint and I can't find any clear guidance on which colors to use. Any thoughts?

  15. Looking for a complete AC kit for my 69 Convertible without factory air. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm not concerned with making it look stock. (I'm leaning towards Vintage Air but haven't heard much about the product).
