  1. I did purchase just the mirror glass and followed the video from WCCC. I has worked our great. I was able to significantly tighten up the loose mirror. We'll see how it works over time but this was a well done suggestion and did save me a few dollars. For $17 to buy the mirror this was a great idea.
  2. I have one door set of door hinge backing plates with the dog point fasteners. Not bad shape. I will ship if you pay the shipping cost. I believe them to be orginal parts and fasteners. Message me if interested.
  3. I have set of what I believe are OEM rear lap belts. They have numbers stamped on the metal brackets. I dont see a Ford part number. They are not in great shape. But my alternative is to chuck them. Just pay for shipping and I send them. Message me if interested.

  5. thanks for sending the picture. I have most of the decals mounted. Not a concourse car but I want to be as close in some areas as I can get. This site is great and really provides so much help from a lot of great people.
  6. Thanks Ridge, I'll go after that one. Want to seal it as best I can.
  7. I've gotten the message about the Caution sticker. Add that to the tool box. Looking to place the Maintenance Sticker Jack instructions Tie down instructions, says License plate area? Was that really used in this location? Ford Motor Company Certification sticker Emissions control sticker Had not used the other site before so I've just registered.
  8. I have a Januray 69 Metuchen built Mach 1. I can see the spread sheet. Is there a way to access pictures of the decal locations? thanks,
  9. I was searching for this exact fix. Thanks RPM for pointing toward WCCC. They always have good videos. here is the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PQw_J52CU0 I'm going to give this a try.
  10. Found it. A vacuum port on the manifold under the carb had split. Couldnt see it. Put on a vacuum gauge and found I was very low. Went back to that cap that I had trouble with and found the split. New cap and clamp. Up to 16 lbs. Now it runs and idles. Its driveable again. Now I need a bit of tunning in the carb. I have the two screws on the sides set at 1 1/2 turns right now. But I will check the carb gasket. It came with the carb. Holley 650. Likely cheap paper.
  11. It ran pretty well. Still a tic or two in there. Not sure what this was about. The really rough idle was due to a vacuum line popped off. Drove about 10 miles ran ok. Still better but still rough idle. The lifter I dont think is the issue. I have either more vacuum leaks or the carb is not set well enough. Going work with timing and check for more vacuum issues next. Appreciate the suggestions.
  12. Crane Cam Lifter with Comp cam roller rockers. I was going back through to make sure the rockers were set to the 1/2 turn. Thats when I found the one that is not pumped up. I've readjusted all of them. Going to try running it again today. It doesn't seem reasonable that only 1 lifter would not pump up when the others have unless something else is wrong.
  13. I finally had my car on the road last weekend after 6 years. Last year I did get to run the engine at about 2200 rpm for 20 min. to break in the cam. All new cam, lifters, rockers heads ect. Running it last weekend it did pretty well. Good power, but driven easy. Today it would start easily but run very rough. Could not idle. Running about 1500 rpm still running rough. Went to make sure the roller rockers were still set right, I found one lifter that was not pumped up on #1 intake. All the rest were the same. Not sure if this is my run rough issue or timing or vacuum leak. My question, do you think the lifter will pump back up? Not sure why it would go from running ok to being as rough as it is.
  14. Thanks, that will make things a bit easier. Need to go pick up the tool. Fortunately I live close to an NPD. The car is finally ready after a 6 year restoration. Hope to have it out tomorrow.
  15. Great suggestions. I also found the tool at NPD Thanks Ridge Runner. I will need to move the piston back in place. I have the light on steady. But looks like the tool is a good way to go. Thank you guys for the help. Close to finally getting this thing on the street.
