  1. I was disassembling my A/T shifter to replace the bushings when I had an issue removing the small hex headed screws that hold the black background and the neutral safety switch in place. All four of them had their heads shear off. I managed to get three of them out with some penetrating oil and heat, but the fourth I had to drill out. Does anyone know the proper type of screws to replace them with? This is for a 69 Mach1 with a 351W and an FMX transmission. Thanks, Mike
  2. Where are you located? This has been on CL in Delaware for a while. Granted it's a 70 hood though. Could weld up the 70 hood pin holes & re-drill for the 69 pins https://delaware.craigslist.org/pts/5992779887.html
  3. Originally from Middletown, where I owned my first Mach1. A 69 390, 4 speed. Before I bought it, a friend of mine I met slot car racing at the Collingwood auction looked at it for me. Never knew his last name, but his first name was Ken. He lived in Toms River and had a 67 GT 350. Now I live in Gibbstown, closer to Philly, working on my second.
  4. Glad it worked for you. Where in South Jersey are you?
  5. Try grinding out the end of the sleeve on either the front or the back of the bushing. That's what I had to do. The sleeve is mushroomed out over the edge of the metal discs on either end of the bushing if you still have the factory bushings installed. Should pop out pretty easily after that. Mine did. Mike
  6. I know this post is a few months old now, but now that we're in the dead of summer, how is the AC working out?
  7. Another good link specific to Vintage Air http://1969stang.com/forum/index.php?/topic/54442-my-vintage-air-gen-vi-install/
  8. This guy used some plexiglass & vinyl wrap to install a Classic Auto Air non AC vent into an AC dash. Can't see how it would be much different for Vintage Air. http://69mustangrestoration.blogspot.com/p/air-conditioning.html
  9. Generally, the only difference I can think of is that the non AC kit comes with the vents, so you have to drill some pretty large holes in your dash to install them. I like the look of the factory center vent better, but the side vents are close enough to the factory ones that I don't mind.
  10. What I did was buy the non AC kit, but an AC dash pad. I then bought a center vent from ebay and purchased the center vent adapter for an AC equipped kit from the AC kit vendor. They will (at least Vintage Air will) sell the individual parts separately. It was inexpensive for the vent adapter and the factory vent looks better in my opinion. Mike
  11. How did the vent install go on the passenger side?
  12. I'm following your progress with interest as I'll be installing the same system. It sounds as if the instructions assume the lower dash is still installed in the car when lining up the template and drilling the holes. Is that your impression? Mike
  13. I've likely taken off what you're looking for. I cut from just above the style line down to make my patch on the rear section of the fender. Oh and it's the left side fender.
