  1. 1969_Mach 1 Thanks for this reminder. I have a 11" clutch so must have a 164 tooth ring gear. I wasn't sure of the offset. With the top loader it should be a 3/8" I assume.
  2. I have a 4 speed top loader. I will check out gear reduction starter Thanks
  3. will check grounds, just put in a new solenoid. Do like to keep the original starter if possible. Thanks
  4. Wanted some input on starters. 69 Mach with 351W, long tube headers having hard starting when hot. I have a stock starter now and was wondering about changing to a mini. I looked at the PA Performance 1881 starter at CJ Pony. Has anyone gone this route and what are your thoughts on this? Thanks
  5. Will check the ground, I actually was thinking that could be an issue. Thanks
  6. yes, new ignition switch last fall and have the same trouble. This points to solenoid since I can hit it with screwdriver handle and it cuts through and starts.
  7. Thanks, I will try for original Motorcraft.
  8. Now getting ready to change my 3d solenoid. Any ideas on better made solenoids. My last 2 were bought at CJ Pony but don't last. When I turn the key there is nothing. If I hit on the solenoid with a screwdriver handle it will cut the current through and start. The relay or plunger in the solenoid must stick. The battery is fully charged so it isn't a battery issue. I assume it is the quality of the solenoids. My Mach 1 is a weekend driver and local car shows so I don't need a concourse looking solenoid. 1969 Mach with 351W. Thanks
  9. Thanks again Midlife. Will probably go for a run only.
  10. Thanks for the picture, that's a big help. One question, is the 12V red wire spliced from the red going to the plug in the wire harness or from the ignition switch Just want to be sure. Thanks
  11. I ordered a volt meter to replace the AMP meter from Rocketman's for my 1969 Mach 1, They said to fold back the AMP meter connections. Does this mean to fold them back at the plug where it plugs into the cluster? Wondering if anyone has done this conversion yet, and if so how did it work? Looks like it is the red and yellow on pins 16 and 17 of the plug. Thanks JRW69 1969 Mach 1, 351W
  12. Sorry Mach 1 Driver. Never had good typing skills. JRW69
  13. My Mach1 4 speed toploader with 300:1 rear end has a 19 tooth gear and is very accurate. I am running 15" wheels. TCI Calculator is a help but you may have to experiment with gear. Be sure to get the genuine Ford gear. They last and don't get chewed up. JRW69
  14. Thanks for the reference all. I will try these suggestions. Did not know about the reversal with led lights. JRW69
