  1. Fitting a Brake Light to the Spoiler

    Top job Mal ,well done.
  2. Thanks Jim, Bob & David for your replies.Any pics David? I bought 4 used clips from West Coast Cougar but the other 3 were out of stock.They are shipping the 4 clips with other parts I bought so will still have to find out where to get the other 3 clips,I think they will have to be used & come from a junk (wrecking) yard or if any member has some not being used.Any ideas where.Cheers Phil
  3. Thanks Jim can you remember which 4 they were from the above windscreen diagram. Bob were you referring to the 7 Clips with screws or the plastic anti rattle spacers or both as per the above windscreen diagram.I couldn't find anything on NPD other than the 7 lower molding clips with screws.Cheers Phil
  4. Has anyone pulled off their front windscreen stainless steel molding & found that these anti rattle spacers were there or were not on the lower section (Spacer for the lower windshield moulding, also called an 'anti rattler'. These spacers were originally installed between the retainers. A total of 7 plastic spacers were used along with 7 metal retainers for that lower windshield moulding. See also C9ZZ-6503150-A (1), and C9ZZ-6503150-C (2). C9ZZ-6503150-B (4)
  5. I'm Interested to find out if you need these Lower Windscreen Molding plastic Anti Rattle Spacers (on '69 & '70 Mustangs) ,or if there is anything else to use in their place.Or if they are required where to buy them from.Cheers Phil
  6. My 1970 Mustang original fuel tank sender unit needs replacing.Any recommendation on where to purchase a replacement & type that will work.West Coast Cougar say that the Repro ones aren't as good as the originals.Interested in finding out what others have used with success.Any assistance will be appreciated,cheers Phil
  7. Question for our Aussie friends

    Happy New Year everyone.Its 1.35am just celebrating the beginning of the New Year here in Rockhampton Central Queensland (Tropic of Capricorn) Australia. Air Conditioner is the closest thing to snow we get here ,it has been 41deg C = 105 Deg F today so plenty of fluids consumed. You all have a safe & enjoyable New Years Day .Cheers Phil
  8. Thanks everyone for your info.I have purchased a 1/2" Plastic Phenolic carby spacer & carby parts have been cleaned & ready for re-assembling in next few days,then back on motor with new spacer. I have attached photos of my fuel tank fill tube.Looks like the previous owner drilled a small hole as a vent near where fuel cap seals? I have also attached photos of my fuel cap which I presume is non vented.Do you think that this drilled hole in fill tube is big enough to vent the fuel tank? and a non vented cap will still be ok to use.
  9. I have pulled the 600 Holley carby off Manifold & stripped it down ready for cleaning & then to install new Holley carby kit.I came across on the Holley web site in questions and answers that they said that fuel from carby can percolate with heat transferred from engine & leak onto intake manifold,they suggested a Plastic Phenolic carby spacer could solve problem.Has anyone had this fuel leak problem & used one of these spacers? Also has any 70 owner removed the plastic set up on their fuel tank or has it set up on their tank as in above photo.PM me if you prefer as I still require info.Thanking you Phil
  10. Hood J Nuts 1970 mustang Coupe

    Bob ,Thank you very much for the above photos & measurements great help everything that I require,& thank you very much Casey for your input great idea.Very Much appreciated,Cheers Phil
  11. Hood J Nuts 1970 mustang Coupe

    Is anyone able to give me the measurements of one of these hood J nuts, total length & width.Thanks Phil
  12. 1969_Mach1 I have no charcoal vapor canister from previous owner, all I have are the plastic parts as in the above attached photo that would go in the trunk.The previous owner attached a metal cover plate over the hole in the fuel tank where one of the plastic covers would have attached(as in Photo).The plastic parts are connected with tubing ,I don't think there is any place for a tube to attach to these parts & go to the motor I will have to check out tomorrow.Has any 70 owner got this set up connected in their trunk & no cannister up front on motor,or neither connected.You may be able to let me know whether your fuel cap is vented or not.My tank being plated if the fuel cap I have is non vented could this send pressure to carby & make it leak?Thanks everyone so far for your input.Regards Phil
  13. My 1970 Coupe fuel tank has a plate covering where this plastic part attaches to the tank in photo( photo attached is not my car but for reference).The previous owner had it disconnected but I did get it with the car.Can someone tell me what this plastic set up does.Is it required to be fitted? I don't know if it has anything to do with working out what sort of fuel cap I should have fitted vented or non-vented? (no pollution gear is attached to motor).My unfinished car is just parked in my shed & I'm having trouble with fuel leaking out of my 600 Holley pooling fuel into the dips along both sides of the new Edelbrock performer inlet manifold below carby. Could it be due to the high temps here in Queensland Australia at present (35 deg C) that the fuel tank is pressurizing ? Any help will be much appreciated.Cheers Phil
  14. My Hood had been removed & painted by previous owner.It doesn't have the J Nuts that the two bolts that hold the hinge bracket screw into.Are they a different size to the fender J Nuts.If so does anyone have the dimensions of one of the J nuts & photos. Thanking you,Cheers Phil
  15. Thanks Mike65, I sent him an email & he said that he hadn't seen these brackets on any 70 coupes that he had seen, but emailed me a photo of a bracket the same as what aslanefe sent photo of on his 69 coupe (on Technical Forum page 6 September 22) & said he had seen these on 70 coupes.On the Ford parts manual it shows the brackets that I am inquiring about listed for 70 coupes as seen in my attachment here. Its got me confused.
