    Photo needed of installed 69 Fender Extension

    Actually pretty hard to see in there. With a flashlight and with my head even with the grill I can see slight body color over spray at the perimeter. Mostly the rest of the inside is a grey/primer color. Don't think a picture will tell you even that much ? Brian

    Should I recore my original radiator?

    Re-coring your original is a good move. I have been recording my originals for decades with never a regret. The re-install always goes smoothly and I have never noted any negative difference in cooling performance. The radiators for my 65 and 66 200 and 289 cars get the three row up grade. The 69/428 is stock with the three row and this last time I up graded the core replacement from the stock 123 tubes 8 fins per inch to the modern 159 tubes 13 fins per inch. The tube and fin count is what I was told. The shop I have been using for the last 45 years orders the core replacement and does the installation re-using my top , bottom tanks and the original side straps. The shops that will or can provide this service are becoming scarce. You are fortunate that you found one. I prefer to refurbish and reuse my original parts rather than piling them up in the garage where they are only one step away from the trash. Brian
  3. FWIW; my car, pretty much stock, measures 8.25" to the bottom of the floor 'pinch' or 9" to the bottom of the rockers. Measured at about the middle of the car. Brian

    Front Fender Bolt @ Upper Door Hinge?

    Interesting stuff and I agree the larger washer would seem to be the better choice for this application. That being said I did check a reliable resource and came up with bolt #57039-S2. That bolt uses the 7/8" disc. Brian

    Front Fender Bolt @ Upper Door Hinge?

    This bolt ? If so 1/2" socket/smaller washer and is the same as most everything in the engine compartment; fenders, shock towers and the hood hinges at the apron. 9/19/68 Metuchen car. Brian

    69 mach1 alternator wiring harness

    The Only other schematic does not show any other details. OK so I 'll say it another way. A battery reading of 13.4 is way to high and my even be dangerous. I would try switching batteries and if the warning light persists I would change out the voltage regulator. Brian

    69 mach1 alternator wiring harness

    Your battery readings seem to be pretty high and may be a clue ? My battery readings are, engine off, 12.53 -12.75. Engine idling at 800 rpm readings are 14.10 -14.19. Chart is from the 69 Wiring diagram booklet. Brian

    69 mach1 alternator wiring harness

    Why the Black w Red is cut is a mystery left by the last owner ? I guess your going to have figure it out ? I think I would hook everything up, plug it all together, check the battery readings for awhile and see what's up ? Brian
