    Window moves front to back

    Hi Moodster Answered this on vmf. If you used aftermarket parts as I did I think they made something wrong on the stud that slides back and forth. I could never get it to stay set as it was made. I added a flat washer to interfere with the movement.

    1969 Heater Box Question

    As for as I know the 69 is the same as the 70 heater/ac box. I have 69 with ac and the resistor pack is to the right of steering column where the blower motor is located.

    soft brake pedal

    did you replace the rear drum shoes? if so did you adjust them out properly? And welcome to the forum.
  4. That is what I did. Did not care about originality so I used one from a 1991 bronco serpentine set up and all.

    Rear Axle Bumper Supports

    this is just one place I am sure others has them too. http://www.mustangsunlimited.com/Mustang/Body/Frame-Rails/Rear-Axle-Bumper-Brackets-Pair-1965-1973-Mustang-1967-1973-Cougar.axd
  6. I replaced mine when restoring the box . The only reason I did tho was they have them now that says they are 134A compatible . Don't know what the difference is tho but I knew I was going to use 134A so I went with the new one.

    Rear Axle Question

    I have measured a f150 8.8 before, can't remember the exact measurements. seems it was around 2" wider than the mustang one.
  8. just curious but I guess you tried different gauges.

    My cross member would not work and was really easier to start from scratch which i did. seem to remember that maybe one (FMX) will work and the (C4) wouldn't or vice verse you may be right Bob because the one i had may be for a C4 not sure. Anyway on the drive shaft I didn't have one anyway so i found that the explorer would fit. I should have been more clear but I was stating what I did add to the upgrade and also a new 2600 stall converter that I forgot to mention and was still under $1000 just to give the OP another option compared to the kit the he posted a link to

    If you are mechanically inclined you can do the upgrade with an AOD or 4R a lot cheaper than the price of that kit. You can pick up an AOD in the States for around 100 to 200 dollars working, not sure about Australia tho. I already had an AOD that was free to me and rebuilt it with the extra frictions and steels and did all the updates to it. Fab up my own cross member and shorten a 1995 mustang TV cable to fit the 69. Used an aluminum drive shaft from a 2 door 2 wheel drive explorer. I have less than a $1000 in the upgrade. I know your problem tho would be finding the bits and pieces and getting them shipped. Good luck with your upgrade I hope it goes well for you.

    Finally completed I think

    Thanks Raven Thanks Doug, I am an old retired man now and had more time to devote to it than most. I restored a 1956 Buick Roadmaster when I was younger and still working, took me many years. Thanks 1969_Mach1 No solid lifters. Lunati hydraulic roller link lifters and roller rockers. I don't hear as well as I use to but I don.t hear any clatter but I will pay closer attention or get my wife to listen she can hear a fly lite on a utility pole.

    Finally completed I think

    Wouldn't have a clue Terry as actual time. I've worked on it off an on since the Spring of 2014. I bought the car in Pennsylvania October 2013. It was a rusted out mess.

    Sagging Rockers anyone?

    Hey Terry Don't really have any experience on this subject, never did it or researched it. I am pretty sure Bob (RPM) on this forum did this an I think he has mentioned this offset you speak of. I bet he could help.

    Chasing a Vibration - Flex Plate?

    Not sure about all FMX's . I have AOD and the converter will not slide back but about 1/4 inch and will not clear the studs. However a friend of mine has an FMX that has bolts so in that case it would be doable but safest way would be as Barnett said remove transmission with converter then bolt transmission (without converter) then mount starter back. Bigmal If you have bolts in yours and try this just make sure the converter spins freely and the converter snout is away from the crankshaft.

    Seat riser repositioning?

    The only thing that comes to mind is where the seat belts mount. If using OEM belts probably want matter but some of the aftermarket 3 point belts that stock hole right behind the seat is where the retract mechanism mounts. My seat riser is in the stock position and with the seat all way back is against the retracter.
