  1. Hi, I am finishing up my 69 coupe project and need the cat whiskers or beltline weatherstrip for the side quarter glass. When I bought a set last year, I got the pieces that go inside the doors. I looked on CJ Pony to pick up the rear set and they only sell it with the side door pieces-4 pc set. Has anyone here bought the 4 pc set and maybe has the 2 smaller side pieces laying around? Thanks.
  2. Hi, I have a 69 Mustang coupe. I am looking for the side window chrome trim/channel that goes between the side door glass and the rear quarter glass. I need both sides. Thanks!
  3. Thank you for your help, Midlife. I got caught up in another problem with interior colors, so have put this issue aside. I will take a look at it tonight again and see what I can do to hook this up the right way. I may be missing the ground wire......
  4. Thanks for your replies. The yellow wire was connected to the ground. The pin plug was missing on my wire harness and the setup to the alt has 3 holes- 2 on top and one on the bottom. The yellow wire burned completely and so I cut it off. I started the engine and it ran fine and the alt gauge was working fine. So I guess it's ok the way it's setup now. If anyone has any input, please reply. Thanks!
  5. Hi, I have a 69 Mustang Coupe with a 302 engine. I got extra parts from different cars when I bought it and I'm not sure how this should be hooked up. I have 3 wires coming off the alt. 1st is a thick black wire that comes off the alt and goes to the front headlight harness and then there's an orange one that I think goes to the field on the box on the firewall. And another wire-white or yellow, goes from the alt and it winds in through the wire harness through a rubber wire holder and goes to a ground. It doesn't connect into the harness. When I hooked them up and fired the engine the wire that goes to ground totally melted and burned off. Does anyone have pics of their wiring or can telll me how the wires are supposed to be hooked up? I have no tach on the dash. Is it possible that the wire that burned wasn't supposed to go to ground? And maybe was supposed to be for tach? Thank you for your help! Sid
  6. Thanks for the info. I thought I needed a "period" carb. Can I use a carb from a Chevy block? I understand your concern about using a junk yard carb, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on one. I basically want to get a carb on the motor to make sure the engine runs. I expect to buy a rebuild kit for any used carb I buy. Regarding history of the engine, it is a stock motor. The only mods I am aware of are the intake and headers. I appreciate all the info!
  7. I'm not sure what info you need. When I bought the car, it was a plain Jane 302 two owner car. The 2nd owner tore out the motor & trans to rebuild it, but some parts were missing when I bought it. So instead of piecing together the original motor, I bought a used 302 engine from a guy who pulled it from a running Mustang. It came with headers. He swapped it out for a bigger motor. He didn't include the carb with the motor, so I need to find one somewhere. Would it be better for me to switch the intake to accommodate a 2bbl carb? I just want to put it back together as a daily driver. Thanks for the help!
  8. The car is AT. I am just putting it back together as a daily driver. So a carb from 69-early 70s with a 600 cfm is what I should look for? Thanks for the replies!
  9. I just bought a 302 engine out of a 68 Mustang and putting it in a 69 Mustang. I don't have a carb for it. The intake is an Edelbrock Torker 289 setup for a 4 bbl. I want to get a used carb from a bone yard but am not sure which years will fit. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! Sid
  10. Thanks a lot Barnett468! That is what I needed. Sid
  11. Hi, I bought a basket case 69 Mustang and am putting in the 302 engine that came with it. But, I don't have the bolts. I would like to get them from the local hardware store, but don't know the sizes and lengths. Can anyone tell me what size & length are the: Eng - AT Trans bolts Starter Bolts Bolt that holds the motor mount together Crossmember bolts Help would be much appreciated! Thanks! Sid
  12. No lines came with it. It only incl mc, booster & prop valve. & NO Instructions either!
  13. Thank you for the help! I appreciate it. I will use the adj prop valve in the kit and save the $150 for another part I will need!
  14. Ok, so my understanding is that I have 2 options: 1. Use my original distributor block(Junction box) for drum brakes and install the new adj prop valve in the rear line. 2. Buy an original distributor block for a 69 w/front disc brakes. Question? With option 2-it is my understanding that the distributor block is just a junction box that feeds all the lines to the mc. There is no proportioning valve in it. Is this correct? If so, would I also need a prop valve for this option?
