  1. The other part of the parking brake is shown here. Someone had busted the metal part on my 69 (the curved part). It wouldn't connect to the part that engaged the parking brake light. I found a similar one from another year and model. I had to bend it to fit and connect when the parking brake was engaged. It is more difficult to find the one in the image, although Ford installed them in many different models for 1969. I am attaching a discussion that I found about the parking brake light when I was repairing/installing mine two years ago.
  2. attached is a photo of mine. It's a bit dark because it was in the garage. My Marti report says that my car came with the Visibility Group Option: LH remote chrome mirror , glove box lock, lights in the trunk, glove box and ash tray, parking brake warning light, lighted ignition switch
  3. It looks like a hole for the parking warning brake light. The light goes on if your parking brake is engaged. I have the same hole and the parking brake light is installed in it for my 69 convertible. I can take a photo and send it in the morning, if you would like.
  4. Thank you very much. That is good to know. I won't let it take up space in the garage--thank you again.
  5. I recently swapped out my radiator for an aluminum rad and am trying to decide what to do with the older one. The old one is stamped C9ZE C1. My car is a 1969 convertible manual transmission no ac and no power steering mustang. Based on the stamped code, the radiator is for a 1969 manual transmission no ac vehicle. I do not know if this is the original radiator or not. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to determine if this is an original radiator? If it is original, is it worth anything to someone? If it isn't original, is it worth anything? It was leaking before the swap after the car pegged at 280 (temp) so it would possibly need to be recored or repaired. Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
  6. With the help of everyone on this website and vintage-mustang forum, I now have functioning turn signal cancellation. Sometimes its the little things in life that make you smile ! I actually did have the same part that Danno posted. The issue was that my earlier steering wheel had an approximate ⅛-¼ inch gap while the new steering wheel hub has an approximate ½ inch gap. The gap prevented the cancellation. I installed two new roll pins which are long enough to reach the cancellation cam. It works well now. Thank you again for your help. I really do appreciate it.
  7. There is only one roll pin but it appears to be too short. I have another set that I am going to transfer over and see if it will work. My steering wheel has a different cancel cam than shown by Danno. My cancel cam is there and appears to be functioning. Thanks to everyone's suggestions, hints, etc., it appears to be the roll pins. I am going to see if I can get them adjusted properly later today or tomorrow.
  8. I need a little help please with my turn signal cancellation issue. I recently installed a new steering wheel on my 1969. The new steering while is a Volante 9 bolt steering wheel (steering wheel and adaptor). After the installation, the turn signals would still cancel although not as good as before the new steering wheel. After two days, they will not cancel at all unless I manually cancel both turn signals (right and left). I have removed the new steering wheel to check the turn signal cancel cam. It is intact and appears to function. I think I have the steering lined up properly but the signal won't cancel. I am not sure what I else I need to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  9. Ford two spoke steering wheel with Horn pad-black. This is an original steering wheel for a Ford Mustang, Fairlane, Torino, or Galaxie. The back of the steering wheel does have some cracks. The horn pad works although there is wear on one side. The center emblem has some wear. It is in good condition, overall. $200 or go. Shipping is extra from 02563.
  10. Ford Mustang Cougar Falcon Original Horn Ring for 1968 1969. $50 (includes shipping to continental USA). This is for a 2 spoke steering wheel. Photos are upside down.
  11. I had a similar issue with my 1969 . It ended up being a combination of the idler arm, worn out bushings for the upper ball joints, and then, needed an alignment. It handles so much better now.
  12. I was wondering if anyone has installed a zlok hood lock (chapman type) or something similar on a 1969. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you
  13. Thank you. I am trying to get back to it but other things keep coming up. I really appreciate the tips and suggestions.
  14. Hello, I am not sure if I need to try and repair my connector or if I need the female end of the headlight switch (photo 1) with the wires (the one mounted on dash). The other 4 photos (sorry they are poor quality since it was from under the dash) are of the connector that may/maynot be damaged (female end). The headlight switch is functioning but the dash lights come and go due to what I think is a broken wire or something in the connector. It's not the actual switch since I have checked it out with a new one and have the same issues. IF I need a need female connector and wires--1) is it available 2) if available--how much would it cost? Thank you in advance.
  15. Thank you, I think I need the female end of the headlight switch with the wires. I will get a good photo and send it to you in the next day or so.
