    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. He is correct about the depth issue. The Kenwood speakers sold by WCCC do not have the depth issue. The will fit a Cougar or Mustang door panel.
  2. I hope so- I've been getting stall tactics for over a year
  3. Grabber70Mach told us they are due out later this year or early next year. That will be a year late. I thought they had shelved the project. The VHX was my next choice and is close to the original stock look.
  4. With or without a factory tach? BTW since you aren't telling us "HOW To" your post would have been more visible under technical. Non tach: 1) top is F, #35 orange, 2) then S, #904 Green/red stripe, then A, #152 yellow. This may be two wires, one loose connection or it could go to a radio condensor, the bottom terminal is I and unused. Tach car: 1) top is F, #35 orange, 2) then S, #4 white/black stripe, 3) #152 yellow. This may be two wires, one loose connection or it could go to a radio condensor, 4) last is I, #904 Green/red stripe
  5. Personally I would wait for Dakota's 69 Retrotech
  6. I got replacements for my Mach. West Coast Classic Cougar sells two types- get the more expensive one. Their listing even says the other one is of lesser quality as I recall.
  7. WCCC has a tool that may be of help- then you can grab the switch with one hand while you thread on the nut with the tool in your other hand: 14964 Tool - Ignition Lock Cylinder Bezel Nut - New ~ 1969 Mercury Cougar _ 1969 Ford Mustang ( 1969 Mercury Cougar, 1969 Ford Mustang ) at West Coast Classic Cougar :: The Definitive 1967 - 1973 Mercury Cougar Parts Source.html
  8. Could you show us a picture of your door holder please?
  9. Yes the line was to be called Retrotech and be out in Feb/Mar of 2019- or so they said in 2018. I asked about it earlier this year but they wouldn't comment at the time. Maybe if enough of us ask it may light a fire?
  10. Why not get yours rebuilt- I believe West Coast Classic Cougar provides a service
  11. I just ran into this today, and am wondering what others think. The story is that if you point the ground strap 2-3* towards the exhaust valve (from dead center between the valves) that you will get slightly smoother Idle and better efficiency. Mark down the length of the porcelain on the open side of the strap and use copper crush washers to align it as needed. This seems like a lot of effort.
  12. the dash light problem is somewhere to the left of the 4A fuse #5 in the schematic. Connect your test light to I on the light switch. The wire is blue with red stripe. Turn the light switch on and adjust the knob to the right (CW). The test light should come on. If it does then Midlife is probably correct and the wire/terminal has broken at the fuse. For the door light, check at the bulb for power with your test light. The wires from the A pillar to the door have to flex and after 50 years may be broken.
  13. Cool is a matter of taste. The Shelby is certainly a more expensive and better performing car but I can't really say I appreciate the look all that much, particularly all those tail lights. Also the signature four head lights were replaced with only two. I'm not saying that the front sudo brake cooling ducts wouldn't have added functionality, but the actual duct to make them cool the brakes was an option and didn't come standard with the car. I got that tidbit from a GT500 owner. I wonder how much lighter all the fiberglass actually made the car?
