  1. 69 Mach Glue in Door Glass

    That's the same as mine .065 I used the 3m took more time to setup than I wanted in 70* weather.
  2. Sorry Another Timing Question

    That's right
  3. Sorry Another Timing Question

    I'm referring to the advance curve cams inside the distributor they very by Ford engines 5L, 8L, 15L etc depending on how much total mechanical advance the dizzy puts out, you double the number 2 revolutions = mechanical advance a 5L would give you 10* mechanical advance. The photo shows a 10L & 15L the 15L is the one controlling the curve it's positioned on the stop, you can rotate it to the 10L for 20* mechanical advance. The springs control at what rpm the mechanical will come in lighter springs means less rpm's heavier more rpm's. Example light springs total mechanical advance 1800 rpm ---------------heavier springs total mechanical advance 3500 rpm Hope this helps, that's why you'll need to know what curve your engines cam needs to set up an MSD box it's controlled by electronics not parts in the dizzy. The dizzy in the pic has a light & heavy spring if I remember right it had total advance at 2800 rpm.
  4. A/C Compressor Fitment

    yep I'm going with the Sanden kit trying to save a few bucks always bites ya later. Interesting about vacuum, I worked on an experimental enclave large enough to hold the carbon fiber wing structure section of the B2 bomber at the Boeing Dev Center. I don't recall what the requirements were for Vacuum but I do remember it had to held at +/- .200" through the whole process. Found some pics online of it I worked on it in 1988 programming the CNC tape layer. The 1st one was to large to fit inside the building it sat right on Marginal Way by the Flight Museum it took several years to get a clearance deviation from security to have it in public view, they could only load & unload at night with everything tarped to hide it from cameras. https://www.google.com/search?q=boeing+developmental+center+enclave&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS742US742&tbm=isch&imgil=HOlSE1ygxwTUXM%3A%3B46-nwHb1ePpLYM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.seattletimes.com%252Fbusiness%252Fnew-boeing-plan-expand-work-here%252F&source=iu&pf=m&fir=HOlSE1ygxwTUXM%3A%2C46-nwHb1ePpLYM%2C_&usg=__iNGJ8Z1ALU8_Rf7Z_u7PSZnopwY%3D&biw=1242&bih=580&ved=0ahUKEwiqtK34oc3VAhUI6GMKHeGUAEMQyjcISA&ei=vqGMWardN4jQjwPhqYKYBA#imgrc=HOlSE1ygxwTUXM: Thanks for your detailed posts Bob
  5. Sorry Another Timing Question

    Your going to need the cam specs or set it by ear even with an MSD setup you need to know what advance curve to set it to. It sounds like you have 15L curve cams in it that is 15+15 = 30* mechanical curve
  6. Sorry Another Timing Question

    Welcome, Without more info on the cam specs I can't say what the initial timing should be, it sounds like it should have a healthy cam in it. With your initial set to 0* 3000 rpm 30* BTC total timing. Somethings not right if you set it 10* before TDC timing shows 20* BTC at 3000 rpm. It should be 10* + 30* = 40* BTC at 3000 rpm total advance are you sure you didn't set your initial at 10* ATC that would = 20* BTC Your mechanical advance is 30* + initial setting = Total Advance at 3000 RPM Your initial should be somewhere around 10* if that engine is built like you said. You'll need to get it set close, then advance your initial by ear till it runs the strongest at idle, then check your initial timing & total timing it shouldn't be over around 36*-40* BTC if it sounds & runs good take it for a ride listening for any pinging if it pings back it off 2* at a time till it doesn't ping that is as close as you can get without knowing the cam specs. You'll need the vacuum gauge to set your low idle speed mixture on the carb not the idle speed adjustment for rpm's at idle go to Edelbrocks site for info on that. http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive/misc/tech-center/dl/carb-owners-manual.pdf
  7. A/C Compressor Fitment

    Thanks for the replies, the unit is new from a Ford dealer they had ordered it for a warranty replacement it includes compressor, condenser, evaporator, tubes/lines and hardware with instructions. My neighbor owns a large HVAC company he'd be making the hoses & charging the system if I buy it. I'd machine a billet pulley and make the adapter plate. The more I think about I'd rather just buy an aftermarket kit. I can't make up my mind.
  8. I have a 69 with factory air when I purchased it last year I had the heater box rebuilt with new heater coil & the a/c coil was checked and pressure tested. I need everything under the hood 2 of the mounting brackets were cracked & the compressor is junk (r10). I've found all the mounting brackets for it on C/L. I was looking at getting the Sanden conversion kit. I've found a 2004 Mustang 3.8l NOS setup complete. I know I'll need to build a new mounting plate, machine a billet aluminum pulley & correct lines made. Has anyone done this type of swap? It will be about 1/4 the cost of a new Sanden kit.Any ideas on other problems I may run into.

    Here's a link to WCCC heater box rebuild should show you what you need
  10. Need help with my Kick Down

    Summit has 5 Lokar FMX cables. https://www.summitracing.com/search/brand/lokar/part-type/automatic-transmission-kickdown-cables/transmission-type/fmx/cable-jacket-material/braided-stainless-steel http://www.jegs.com/i/Lokar/625/KDP-2FMXHT/10002/-1
  11. That would make them glue-in right? John at Cascade Classic Cougars & Mustangs might have a pair. I almost bought a full set of bolt ins 70's from him when I re-glued mine. Give him a call he's a great guy to talk to, has just about any part you can think of he's trying to clear out some of his used parts. http://www.cascadeclassics.com/
  12. Need help with my Kick Down

    Just noticed in your 1st pic compare to mine it looks like you have the wrong kick down assembly on the carb, look at Holley's site I think you need a Ford Kick Down Kit like this one. http://www.cjponyparts.com/holly-carburetor-kick-down-linkage-adapter/p/AKLA/?year=1969&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI5tSx14XD1QIVB1p-Ch0SoAWiEAQYASABEgI9-_D_BwE
  13. Need help with my Kick Down

    I'd say you need to find a new or used kick down rod, yours may not even be the right one for a Mustang from the looks of the bend by the firewall. Here's my setup I just took these only difference is the Dominator manifold.

    The curve cams don't matter I have a collection of them. Some pics of the dizzy would be great. Just noticed your in B.C. we've spent a lot of time up there in the past. Love it there some great places to get away. We were just talking about taking taking a boat ride up to Victoria. The fires up there must be bad we've been covered with a thick layer of smoke for the last 6 days Friday visibility was 2 miles even delayed plane take offs, not expecting it to clear out till Thursday.

    A pic of the dizzy would be great. Do you know which curve cams are in it 10L 15L?
