    Sounds like bad ground connection to me.

    Idler arm silly question

    I see at least one zerk on open tracker's site on 1969 idler arm picture where the heim joint is. The photo shows only one view so there may be a zerk on the other end not visible on the picture.

    Idler arm silly question

    I believe Open tracker roller idler has 2 zerks as you have to lube the roller and the heim joint. But I think there are idlers with 2 zerks without rollers two. If you look at regular mustang part supplier's web catalogs, you see one idler with 2 rubber bushings on ends (without zerk fitting) and another idler with helm joint on one end and 2 zerks (one at each end) and they do not specify those idlers as roller. So I assume and per what barnett468 says above, those have rubber bushing on the other end.

    Idler arm silly question

    So, there is the original style idler arm with replaceable bushings on both ends. Then there is the one printdad bought shown above with helm joint on one end and rubber bushing on the other; is the rubber bushing replaceable on this kind? Then the opentracker roller idler which has helm joint on one end and roller bearing on the other end. Am I correct?

    Then, what are the zerk fittings for?

    Idler arm silly question

    If it has 2 zerk fittings, I would think that is has bearing instead of rubber bushing.

    Mystery Part?

    That is the picture of the last hanger before rear valance. There is an other (or 2) front of the axle under the rear seat

    That is a project, are you going to keep anything besides the top frame?

    Need Bushing - Wiper Arm Linkage to Motor

    Looks like RPM used two standard bushings, cut the bigger one in half and slid over the small one. If you can't find that bushing, you can get standard bushings from a hardware store; Tractor Supply in my area has decent selection of bushings.

    Guillaume69, I would put the bolts for the upper ball joint on top, nuts on bottom; in case nuts get loose and fall out, the bolts will stay. Also, +5 to +6 degrees of caster makes the car more stable. You need to modify UCA or get a modified UCA for more caster. I am going to write a DYI to modify the UCA for more caster soon.

    347 stroker motor

    Can't you measure the stroke through spark plug hole by rotating the crank with a piece of straight something resting on the piston?

    I think he is asking about the piece between the quarter and taillight panel. By the way, as far as I remember, there are 2 pieces there.
