    Brian Conway got a reaction from RPM in Difference between Tail Light panels, 69 &70   
    FWIW; my 69 quarter extensions are fiberglass and are C9ZB-11-C and 10 C.  The 69-taillight panel is definitely curved top to bottom.  Fitment on exterior tops and sides is quite good.  With the trunk lid open gaps are obvious on both sides and in different locations.  I think the outward appearance was/is more important than the symmetry.  Brian

    The motor, carb and intake info might help?  Idle mixture screws are a great start.  Easy to do and undo. We all like to work on acceleration.  Professional tuning is usually best left alone.  That said with the help of a tach (so you will have a base rpm) you could adjust the idle rpm's using the idle adjustment screw.  Brian

    Doesn't make the manifold bad.  Does make the 'lower oil baffle' bad.  The purpose for the baffle is two-fold.  Provide an insulated area below the carb. pad from hot air and hot oil splash.  Brian

    Brian Conway got a reaction from RPM in 69 Fuel Sender   
    OK got some new info and the results are ... it's the dash gauge and Rocketman is the recommended vendor for recalibration. I did put the Spectra FG 86B in the car Oct. 10, 2019  at 20,280 miles.  Kept a record of gas fill ups, ohm readings and mileage.  End result was with the gas gauge needle dead on E I got a 65 ohm reading. I still had about 5 gallons of gas in the tank.  Bill Basore at Desert Classic Parts refurbished my C9WE-9275-A Sender.  I installed it yesterday, at 22,325 miles, with much the same results.  With an empty tank and the needle below  E  I got a 66 ohm reading.  With 3 gallons in the tank I got a 53 ohm reading and with 20 gallons, at $6.70 a gallon, I got a 10 ohm reading.  I called Basore, relayed my findings and he confirmed the dash gauge was the problem. Basore took a bit more time to explain the why and how but that's the short story.   When I pulled the Spectra unit the float had an eyedropper of gas in it.  Other than that the Spectra sender did a good job.  Because I am not taking my dash apart to get the gauge out, right away, I will live with Empty means 3 gallons of gas in the tank.  Close enough.  Brian

    Brian Conway got a reaction from RPM in Ideas for adding tach to non-tach car?   
    I run the stock tach and I will suggest you get one big enough to see.  My stock set up is so far inset in the dash cluster it takes a while to focus.  I don't like taking my eyes off the road for that long.  Numbers are not big enough and the lighting is poor. I have mine taped/marked with the important numbers.  A large one on the column with shift points/lights would be the ticket.  Brian

    Welcome to the site.  Before converting to EFI you might try a basic tune up?  Plugs, points and condenser or an oil and filter change?  Get the Ford Shop Manuals for your car.  Start learning the names of parts and their functions.  Then try asking a few questions?  See how it goes.  Brian

    Brian Conway got a reaction from RPM in Engine block paint for a 1969 428CJ - Which blue?   
    I use Ford Dark blue.  Pretty sure I got this at NAPA.  Works out pretty nice for me as touch up is easy and the color always match's up.  I spray a small amount into the cap and use a very small paint brush for the touch up.  Brian

    Brian Conway got a reaction from RPM in 1969 Front Parking Lights ...   
    My originals were in good shape so I cleaned them up and got some black Rust Oleum on them 2009.  I understand the angst involved with trying to buy some presentable parts.  Anghels restored parts are more than what I have in the budget but sure are nice.  Buying parts is a trying and usually expensive ordeal.  Sometimes it seems like getting a 'correct' part is worth the extra money.  Brian

    Turns out the clip that aslanefe posted may in fact be the original style clip for 69.  After receiving a couple original 69/70 clips from Scott at West Coast Cougars I removed the remnant from my car.  Appear to be a match ?  Brian

    Buying parts is most times a crap shoot.  Quality parts soon get a reputation as such.  One supplier may not have the best products out there.  I did use TMI for my 69 upholstery w/buns.  It been a few years and things do change.  I suggest you take a look at these guys for your door panels. https://mustangmarket.com/
