  1. So Kris, after checking out your pics including your garage, I take it your favorite color is green.
  2. Fixed it for you Rick, Rob, Rich...whoever.
  3. Glue has come a long way in the last 50 years, so don't be afraid to use it. I'd use whatever style is currently in car. No need to buy more stuff than you need to. I used a Spal conversion kit, and put the switches in the center console.
  4. http://www.chockostangclassicmustang.com/ Chockostang is a trusted and well respected rebuilder of Mustang steering boxes. If yours has play that can't be adjusted out, he's your guy.
  5. I'm pretty sure my rear end guy measured that with dial calipers.
  6. Things I'd recommend if you don't already have them: -Subframe connectors -Export brace -Monte Carlo bar -Arning/Shelby upper control arm drop
  7. Holy crap! You boys down under have no fear. Looks real nice.
  8. Welcome to the forum. Since I'm a guy, I sure would like to look at some pics of your Mach 1. This is what I installed to get tighter steering. It's a manual steering center link. I'm an overweight, 63 yo out of shape guy with manual brakes and steering on my Mach 1. Who needs power anything on a classic Mustang? As the guys have said, check all the connector joints in the steering. It usually takes two people, one turning the steering wheel, the other under the car observing and shaking joints for tightness. Pics brother, I gots to see some pics. Oh, and which part of the world do you call home?
  9. I'll buy one of those caps from you Mike. All my contact info is the same.
  10. I'd absolutely re ring it. So what explains the milky oil? That's not the result of any wiped can I've heard of.
  11. If I can't get Motorcraft ignition parts, I use Standard Motor Products.
  12. I've got $20 that says it's polishing compound spatter.
  13. It may or may not be bump steer. Worn steering and suspension pieces, and toe out can cause your symptoms. Lowering these cars from stock ride height often adds to the bump steer these cars already have. After doing the Arning upper control arm drop, adding a bump steer kit, and doing my own alignment, my 69 handles pretty darn well.
  14. Nice ride Ah, maybe late for moodster :) but it's always good info. That's a heck of a nice looking 69 bart, care to give us some history on it?
  15. I'm sure plenty are following. If not, I know the important people are :)
  16. I think it's too nice to be driving around in Qatar, and welcome to the forum! Care to share how you and your nice 70 ended up in Qatar?
  17. If nobody in charge reacted to the outrage of members images from threads being deleted, what are the odds of this thread being questioned? Go for it.
  18. I bought mine from NPD, and had Ridge Runner install it. It's still pliable and leak free.
  19. More caster makes the car turn (handle) better. I've read that the closer you get your caster to the SAI (steering axis inclination) the better the car will handle. I believe our Mustangs have 10° sai. I've got 8° caster with manual steering and 245/40-18 tires up front. Low speed parking is the only time extra effort is required by my 63 year old arms. Yes, more caster will result in the car wanting to go straighter.
  20. It cost me many hours of cutting, sanding and fitting.
