  1. Mine had a rubber strip that wrapped around the edge of the glass, no adhesive whatsoever.
  2. Need opinion on brake issues

    That does not look like a hear issue to me. I'm with the statement this blistering is from brake fluid. It may not be leaking, maybe spilled when filling and or bleeding the master.
  3. Need opinion on brake issues

    Does the master have a residual pressure valve for the drum brakes, if not it should or have a valve plumbed in-line.
  4. Need opinion on brake issues

    Not ruling air in the lines or master but the drums had self adjusters. Baskup quickly and apply the breaks with steady pressure until you stop, repeat a couple of times.
  5. Front End Squeak Intermittent

    Glad you found the issue! I have a similar squeak in the front of my Lightning. if you ever put up hay you know the sound of a hay rack.... Searched forever & finally rebuilt the front end, everything but the springs. Long & short the issue is the powder coating has worn off the bottom of the coil springs causing the squeak. Oddly it only occurs when it is hot. HOT ids the season in texas right now but I have not herd the squeak yet this year. Guess I need to look for something wrong. :-)
  6. Door issues

    This is a common problem with new seals. I am sure they will relax some but can not say how much. You say there is some play in the latch, how much is some, video may help. How badly are the strikers worn?
  7. Pinion Support

    That ridge is to support the bearing race. I would be more afraid of the crack spreading from the rough edges, it does not provide allot of support in that area. If you are on a really tight budget I would pull the broken section out, touch up the rough edges & run it. However, these can be bought for less that $100, much less in some cases, so why risk it?

  9. Tool of choice: spot weld remover

    I liked the idea of the carbide bit, may give it a try next time. I personally like the Blair spotweld cutter, they cut exceptionally well. Most people spin them too fast and break the teeth. There is no need to spin the fast.
  10. Rattle Reduction Questions

    Automotive structural adhesive or some automotive expanding foam made of this purpose
  11. Group 27 Battery Tray OEM/NOS

    It would really depend on condition & if it included the lower stand. If in show quality condition my WAG would be in the $200 - $250. I have seen the group 22 in show quality condition advertised for $225... NOS would be anyone's guess. NOS is not always indistinguishable from production line.
  12. Group 27 Battery Tray OEM/NOS

    I would consider yourself lucky to ever find one NOS. Finding a used is not that easy of a task. A repop is available for $90.: http://mansfieldmustang.com/EngineElectrical.html http://mansfieldmustang.com/06-78a.jpg

    Ridge, I will take the pr of red side scoops. Send me a pm here or email me, jmlay71 @ gmail.com.
  14. Block cleanup

    Should work fine. I would hook the pressure washer up to your water heater if you have the option. Make sure you blow them out with air & apply some protector to prevent rust.
