    Mountaineerfan reacted to JayEstes in Power Brake vacuum question   
    Mine was cracked and it wasn't all obvious it was until I tried to pull it out of the booster, and it broke.  Make sure you get the right size hoses to go with it.  It should go from the booster into the main vac port on the back/top of the engine.  This hose is very important to overall vacuum, as it is a larger size, and leaks have a big effect.  It won't cost you but a little more to get the hose replaced.

    Bingo! This was the issue! At one point on the trip, I went to start the car and nothing happened. I reached behind the switch and pressed on the wires in the connector, and tried again. It started fine after that. I just installed a new pigtail, and all seems happy! Quite a bit of corrosion on the old wires.

    Thanks for the replies! The car is a 69. 
    While I will check what you all have mentioned, I have another theory that I haven’t tested: When I installed the new starter solenoid, it was a black color versus the gray color of the old one. Since that’s when my trouble started, I looked again at the online descriptions of the starters. Apparently the gray one is heavy duty. Could this be the issue? 
    By the way, we made it to Dearborn from Atlanta! The power issue cycles through about three times and then stays on, so we’ve survived the travel. I’m posting on Instagram if you want to see our pics: @stevestang1969

    Check the plug on the back of the ignition switch. It is common to have a burnt up connector on the plug on cars with a/c due to the higher current load. Back in the day when you bought a new Motorcraft / Ford ignition switch it came with a new pigtail to make a proper repair.

    Sounds like something going on at the fuse box, as radio, backup lights, and blower motor/AC are powered by ACC and fused by 2 fuses.  Might be a bad ignition switch or bad/nearly broken wire for ACC at fuse box.  Usually, it is the BAT line that breaks, not the ACC line.  Something is going on that when more power is pulled through those lines, continuity is lost due to higher resistance.  I'd check your fuse clips first.

    Through the firewall.  I had the heater box out and that made it relatively easy.  I actually installed a heavy gauge amplifier wire to the battery and to a junction box mounted to the right of the glove box. I then used a relay with the original radio wire as the trigger.

    The OEM radio was lit by a single bayonette style bulb that got power through a single blue wire you can see in the photo below. It sounds like your harness is pretty butchered so it may take some work to find the conductor (or what's left of it) in your dash.

    By the way, above is from memory when I removed it a year or so ago.  Do not force anything if you run into a snag but let me know so I can go look at my 70 vert as trim is not installed on that car at the moment.

    Mountaineerfan reacted to det0326 in Regulator roller for window?   
    Not sure if this is correct or not. It doesn't list 69 mustang but it does list 69 cougar. It does give the dimensions tho so u could measure one of your good ones.

    Noticed too that u mentioned glue window in again. If u are having an issue with it breaking loose what some are doing is cutting a suitable length of rubber hose and using for a stop on the rails/guides to stop the down motion before it hits the center rubber stop.  This keeps pressure off the window putting stress on the adhesive.

    Sounds right, I have the convenience group in my car. For whatever reason, I thought all '69's had the 12V wire to the trunk but it appears I was mistaken. First time that's ever happened. :)

    I would definitely order a Marti. You have a nicely optioned car at the very least. Depending upon how complete the car is, you can probably deduce the original color by looking for overspray or other hidden spots of original color.
    You may not want to keep it original, pink or otherwise, but it's always cool to know what it started out as. 
    I had a poster in my garage for a long time of a '69 vert in pink.  Not a great poster but I have a vert and there aren't a ton of posters with a '69 convertible on them, so you take what you can get... :)

    So here's the tool I ended up getting.  It worked beautifully!  It took longer to open the box and look at the directions than it did to actually put the mirror on!  Now I have extras for future things that may come up.  Right tool for the job....

    @Mountaineerfan
    Make sure you get the 69 ones, as far as I know the pieces that go on aft of fender are the same on 69 and 70, but the ones that go on front (behind the headlight) are different between 69 and 70.
    If you can't find an original set, the ones I posted a link for might be your only option for 69.

    Well, the most recent Mustang Club Magazine has a cover article on the Mustang II in the mid 70's that only had a few convertibles made by an outside company that did cut the top off.  Well give the young man the benefit of the doubt,..
