  1. This makes me feel better. I was getting irritated about that gap. Glad it’s normal!
  2. I have this same setup. It works great! I did a couple of parades here in Atlanta in the summer, and the needle stayed perfectly still!
  3. See, I can't let that one go. The teacher that I am wants to educate others! :)
  4. Awesome!! Thanks for the pic! Anyone have an old set of these they'd like to part with?
  5. Nope. Didn't know that was a thing! Thanks! Would they have come stock on the vehicle?
  6. That PS hose bracket appears to be broken on one end.
  7. So I've noticed that at night when driving with the headlights on, my front tires are all lit up from light bleed. Now, normally this is a wanted feature, as people spend a lot of money on special LEDs that light up their wheel wells. I'm not sure that is the case here, however. Can anyone tell me if this is normal, or am I possibly missing a shield of some sort behind the headlights. Thanks!
  8. And that was what I thought. It was some 20-something worker at a parts store who was adamant that he was correct. I told him he wasn’t, that I had the paperwork on the car, but he just kept insisting. I decided it wasn’t worth it to engage, paid for my spark plugs and left. Never one to think I know it all, and willing to be corrected if I’m wrong, I came straight here to ask the experts. I’m glad I wasn’t wrong, but where do people get off telling others that they don’t know what they’re talking about in regards to their own car? Once had a guy at a car show adamantly argue that “I” had installed the ornamental scoops backward, even after I explained to him that it was 1969, and who knows what the designers were on that year.
  9. I’m just verifying that I’m not crazy. I have a convertible. I’ve pulled the Marti report on it. I feel pretty confident about it’s history. Had a guy telling me that Ford never made convertibles in 69, they only made coupes. Ford would then send them to another company to chop the roof off, and if you took the trim off, you could see the plugs where the coupe was chopped. Is this correct??
  10. Hey, everyone! So I'm getting tired of messing with the fuel sender and it's poor gauge reading. Has anyone tried a MeterMatch? I've heard good things about it on VMF, but that was with a 65. Has anyone connected one to a 69, and if so, how/where did you splice it into the wiring? https://www.npdlink.com/product/metermatch-fuel-tank-sender-calibrator-and-interface-module/216214?backurl=search%2Fproducts%3Fsearch_terms%3Dfuel%2Bsender%26top_parent%3D200001%26year%3D1969&year=1969
  11. I did this to my convertible. It cools great, and is perfect for parades, where you have lost of low-speed driving and sitting still.
  12. Thanks! The ignition switch is on the dash. This is the switch I replaced: https://www.cjponyparts.com/cj-classics-turn-signal-switch-wiring-fixed-column-1969/p/TSW23/
  13. Thanks for the response! No, I have a 69 convertible. I replaced the turn signal wiring in the steering column at the same time I put in the sequentials. My front signals are bulbs (and blink slowly). I have LEDs coming for those, along with an electronic hazard flasher relay. Dash lights are all LEDs, and all work except for the turn indicators. All exterior lights are bulbs EXCEPT rear sequential tails, and reverse lights. All lights function normally. No, I do not have hood turn signals.
  14. Did you ever find a solution to this? I'm having the same issue!
