    I'm a retired engineer who is the original owner of an unmodified 69 Mach1 351w, H code with an FMX. It was a daily driver for many years and now that I'm retired I intend to restore the car of my youth.

  1. I had a double failure one time- I had rebuilt the carb and when I went to start it, the float stuck, gas started pouring out all over AND the starter solenoid stuck. The engine kept cranking and gas kept pouring. Banging on the solenoid didn't help so I frantically took the battery cable off. Soooooo.... be prepared to take the battery cable off.
  2. I'd start with NPD as suggested above, but another place to try is West Coast Classic Cougar- they will know which of their parts fit a Mustang.
  3. The fuse is good so it must be the lighter. If you have an ohmmeter check out the resistance. I found this on line: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwj6uIW9j7noAhWEiOAKHZ9wDLIQFjABegQICRAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cjponyparts.com%2Fmustang-cigarette-lighter-element-knob-set-1967-1969-installation-instructions%2Fa%2F408%2F&usg=AOvVaw3g9wJuqCny_t_ak0Av9D-D
  4. I'm not sure if you have resolved your electrical issues, but if not: Fuse #6 should be 14A. Despite what your drawing says, It runs the following items (but you may not have all of these) map light, cigar lighter, clock, trunk light, and courtesy lights. The lighter takes the most amps in this circuit. Since the problem is when you push it in, either you have a problem with the lighter or perhaps the fuse is undersized. The lighter draws 5.6A so it should have 2.14 ohms- you can check it will an ohmmeter, or the socket may have a short. On my Mach1 the lighter is in the console and is fairly easy to get out. Stay well. I look forward to visiting your amazing country when this is all over.
  5. Yeah but its got that nice little door you can lift up to adjust dwell with a meter- ya gotta admit that's much better than using a feeler gauge!
  6. She probably caught him synchronizing and maximizing his scavenging
  7. What? You don't believe their marketing huckster? I'm shocked!
  8. fyi- Invented by Doug Thorley Headers, the Tri-Y header is designed to match the synchronization of the engine firing order, thereby maximizing exhaust scavenging. This design creates the optimum torque and greatest horsepower gains in comparison to any other design.
  9. This appears to be a hoax: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/hair-dryer-coronavirus/
  10. Earlier you said Doug's shorties: so more specifically they are 3/4 length, not shorties?
  11. My wire diagram shows it connected to battery+, to an inline 7.5A fuse, to the hood switch, to the engine compartment lamp, and the other side of which goes to chassis. And I found this, but it is the lamp only: https://autopartsobsolete.com/1962-69-NOS-Ford-Under-Hood-Trunk-Light-C2RZ-15A700-A.html
  12. next we'll have teenagers arrested fro TP'ing a house
  13. These numbers are from the internet so can certainly be disputed, but just LOOK at the numbers. These are the deaths for the flu world wide: 2015 51,000 2016 23,000 2017 38,000 2018 62,000 2019 17,000 Covid-19 (Coronavirus) 4,641 world wide as of 3/11. There were 37 deaths in the US as of 3/12. My perspective is as an American. I know a little of what is happening around the globe, but like everyone I care more about my home. I refuse to watch main stream media because all they do is lie and exaggerate. I follow Fox news, and no they aren't perfect, but a damn site better than CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC and all the other lefty news sites. I believe we have the best health care specialists and researchers in the world, and the steps taken by our government were needed. What isn't needed is the constant hyping by the media. Most people follow that crap and gee wiz, now we have a panic. All I'm saying is to just use common sense. If you are more likely to be hit by lightning than die of corona virus, then there is no need for panic. Yes we need to take precautions, and yes more people will die, but this will end and the US will probably be better off than most. Early action has saved lives. Some of the stock market crash was caused by the Russians manipulating the oil market, but come on -give me a break- most this is the media hype over corona. Its click bait. End of tirade. ALL of you be well.
  14. This reaction is so out of proportion to the risk it is mind boggling. In the US there are a little over 1600 confirmed cases and 37 deaths out of over 300 million people (per Fox News last night). The stock market has lost 2.8 trillion. It is ALL from media exaggeration. The lying bastards. A whopping .0000123% of the US population has died from corona virus. Do the math: move the decimal over two to the left and multiply 0.000000123 x 300,000,000 = 37. THIS IS INSANE. This hysteria hurts the country far more than the virus. This is really really bad. I'm not saying its not dangerous, after all- people have died, but this is just plain stupid hysteria. Use common sense. I know the number of deaths will go up, and so far we have 37, but 49 die each year from lightning strikes in the US. I don't personally know of anyone that was hit by lightning, but I know it happens.
