    That appears to be the main power line for the headlight/interior/ignition system.  Yeah, that helps to have that connected if you want anything to be energized.

    That kit looks familiar...

    New plugs and wires, and straightened up the cabling a little.  Looking better!

    Had the day off yesterday, so my son and I spent the day getting the car on the road!  This is the vert that we just received back from the paint shop, and so have been putting it back together.  Today we installed 4 new KYB Gas-A-Just shocks.  Got them from Rock Auto.  As we were installing the first front shock, one of the mounting studs on the bottom snapped off!!  So we called around to three different shops in our area and found Pep Boys had one in stock.  It was more than twice what I paid for one on Rock Auto, but we had to get it.  Expensive lesson.  We then installed the seats, center console, and steering wheel.  We haven't put the interior quarter panels in yet or the door panels, as we are still working on those.  Once all of that was finished, we hit the road!  Man, did it feel good to drive her again after a year of being painted! 
    The shocks did AMAZING!  The car has a lot more pickup (I barked the tires several times, which it was unable to do before!), and is SMOOOOTH!  No more holding on for dear life when turning or going over bumps!
    I'm attaching a few pics my son took.  We still have work to do, but yesterday was a great day!

    She's home!!  But of course, as a teacher, school starts tomorrow and I won't have time to do anything for awhile!!  Argh!
    So my first order of business is to recharge the battery.  It came back quite dead, but I have a trickle charger on it now, and it's charging up!  I want to start with putting the gauge cluster back in, so I figure I need a battery so I can test that!

    Mountaineerfan reacted to 69ShelbyGT350H in Does anyone repop the A/C Diffusers   
    From under the metal dash and looking over the metal dash with the pad off, you can remove the plastic ducts from the back of the vents. They will pull off the clips toward the front of the car and then slip off the cloth and/or plastic vent tubing. Remove the elbows from the back, out the bottom of the dash. Each vent has 3 Phillips screws on the back side. Using a shorty Phillips screwdriver you have to work blind or use a mirror and you can back them out or totally remove them. If loosened, turn the back mount clockwise while holding the vent against the dash. Once the vent mount cup is off the front of the vent will come out of the metal dash. 
    To re-install, put the 3 screws in each vent a couple of turns. Put the vent into the metal dash and then the vent cup in the back, sliding the cup over the 3 screws. Rotate the vent cup to lock it over the 3 screws and then tighten the Phillips screws. Attach the elbows to the ducting and then press back onto the vents.
    I just had to take my vents back out after mounting the metal dash on the car as I had not installed the dash wiring first. Wiring needs to go first. The rear harness to dash harness attaches behind the drivers side A/C vent, so it had to come out. The passenger door wiring comes out behind the passenger A/C vent, it is next for me.

    So I bought a new headlamp switch and that fixed the dash light problems.  Still no turn signal lights, but I think that may be an issue with the flasher relay.
    Thanks for everyone's help!  I'm excited to get the interior back together.  I'll keep you all informed!
    Love this site!

    Mountaineerfan reacted to Midlife in Yet another circuit board question....   
    Yes, the bolt holding the regulator on; the pad beneath the bolt should touch the grounding plane of the circuit card.
     Put your multimeter on resistance, one probe on a gauge post, the other on the metal chassis of the dash cluster.  You should see 100's of kilo-ohms or more.  If you see 14 or 0 ohms, one of the posts is touching the case.  If the post you are testing is a CVR output post, then any of the three gauge posts for that signal can be touching the metal housing.  The ammeter posts are not related to the CVR and it is absolutely essential that they do not touch the metal housing.

    Measure resistance from the post to the chassis ground: should be about 14 ohms if they are not touching the metal.

    Mountaineerfan reacted to Midlife in Odd Parking Light Behavior   
    Pinched wire in the headlight harness, where the Battery Power line is contacting the right parking light?  Hmmm...if true, then the left side would light up as the two front lamps are tied together.  That can't be it...right turn signal lever on?  That might be the case if not enough resistance in the circuit (bulbs on that circuit are missing). 
     
    My best two possibilities.  The third is that your car is possessed.

    Not much.  She's been in the shop since October getting body and paint done.  Rumor has it we will have it home this week! Then the work starts of reassembling the interior....
    But I did stop to see her today!  All the "Mustang" badging is back on, and weatherstripping was being installed!

    It has a power top, power steering and brakes, and factory air. 53500 miles, 2bbl 302, automatic. Originally new lime, was repainted at some point in the past. It has a 30 foot paint job, hoping to repaint at some point!
    There's plenty to work on, but it's a nice driver! I'm sure I'll have lots of questions very soon!
