    Cruising the Coast 2014

    I have been the past three years and took my 69 mach last year but it doesn't look like I am going to make it this year.

    69 mach 408w build

    Have you had problems with your pressure plate being out of balance? I have a vibration at 2500 rpm and the pressure plate is the only thing I can think of that could be causing it (that is if my machinist did everything he said he did).

    My 1969 Mach 1 Restoration

    I haven't been on this site in a while. I was looking at some of these nice projects you guys have going and though I would post some pictures from a small local car show Dad and I went to this weekend.

    Top loader doesn't like to shift at high RPMs

    I should have been more specific before. I've got a older Lakewood scatter shield, centerforce II clutch and pressure plate, autozone throw out bearing, stock style z-bar that has been beefed up with plate steel, stock rod going from the pedal to the z-bar, homemade adjustable rod going from z-bar to clutch fork, stock pivots with new bushings, stock resurfaced flywheel, stock clutch fork, rebuilt wide ratio top loader 4 speed, hurst competition plus shifter bought in the early 80's with new bushings in the linkage. So far changing up the geometry by drilling the new hole in my pedal down lower has cured my problem. We will see this weekend, going to cruising the coast in Biloxi, MS. Thanks for all the input guys, Drew

    Top loader doesn't like to shift at high RPMs

    It has been a very long time since I have got on here but I was going let you guys know that I got my shifting problem fixed. I was not getting enough travel out of my clutch linkage and my clutch was not releasing like it should. I ended up drilling another hole in my clutch pedal down lower to get more travel out of it. Thanks everyone for the help.

    Headlight Issues

    Yes that is correct. I am having a similar problem with my high beam lights. The low beams work perfect but when I switch to high beams they come on for a couple of minutes, flicker on and off, the all headlights go off completely. If I tap the dimmer switch and put them back on dim the dims come back on and they work perfect. I'm thinking I need to replace my dimmer switch because I'm still using the original.
  7. I am having some problems shifting my top loader at high rpm's. Everything is new clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, pilot bushing. The transmission was rebuilt and I am using an older hurst shifter that my Dad bought in the 80's. We put all new bushings in the shifter and have it adjusted on the money. It shifts good until you get up over 4500 rpm. My rev limiter is set at 6500. It comes out of gear good but doesn't want to go into the next and it does it the worst when shifting from 1st to 2nd. If you let the RPMs fall down to about 4500 it will fall right in gear. Normal driving is perfect but trying to speed shift when revving high is very difficult. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Drew

    My 1969 Mach 1 Restoration

    Went to Talladega,AL last night to a cruise-in. We got there about 8 and it was already over. I guess we were late as usual but me and Dad got to put about 100 miles on the cars, enjoy a pretty day and took a few quick pictures.
  10. I ordered 2 packs of 12 from mustangs unlimited (which was not enough for doing the front and back glass). When the glass guy was putting my molding on none of the mustangs unlimited clips I had would work (I only bought one style and not sure which ones they were but they were Chinese of course). Anyways I ended up cleaning up all the old ones that I could find and taking all of the ones off of a parts car I have and I ended up having just enough to put the molding on. I did not damage any clips taking them off because they just popped right off. There's nothing like original parts. Good luck!
  11. Mine has a tilt column in it that tilts up And down. My dad said he got it out of a 69 grande'.

    Traction bars?

    Traction bars?

    Do you guys know the difference between the low profile and the drag profile? There website is not very informative.

    Traction bars?

    Awesome! I think I will probably go with caltracs. Was that with drag radials?
