    69 Vert project

    What I was referring to was a complete assembly, everything from the rear frame rails to the front frame rail supports. Dynacorn and at least one of the major companies make these assemblies for the 65/66 vert as well as coup and fastback of all years. I have not seen one for a 69/70 vert but I am sure someone has a complete assembly. There was a company that was assembling & selling the 65/66 before before Dynacorn and the others, they would build others upon request. Can not seem to find the company name at the moment. Just found it, Thoroughbred GT (http://www.thoroughbredgt.com/ 330-533-0048). They may now be out of business or the home page URL has changed. May be worth a phone call the phone number still works, 330-533-0048. If I were working on a car with that much rust if I could get a quality fully assembled pan I would jump on it in a heartbeat. It takes a lot of time and dedication to do the work right, what is your time worth TO YOU.: https://www.prlog.org/12053498-100-premium-quality-mustang-real-steel-floors.html https://www.facebook.com/ThoroughbredInt/

    Have you considered one of the complete floor pans/trunk assemblies? May save quite a bit of time and aggregation. Remember time is money. Below is for a fastback or cupe but a little searching I’m sure a vert version may be found.: http://www.mustangsunlimited.com/Mustang/Body/Floor-Trunk-Seat-Pans/One-Piece-Floor-Pans/Dynacorn-1-Piece-Floor-Trunk-Pan-1969-1970-Mustang-Coupe-Fastback.axd

    Mystery Part?

    Bracket to hold the fold down trapdoor open.
  5. If your 100% positive the headers will slide in around the aod, and everything else in the way, the go for booting them on before dropping the engine in. But bolting them in as you go may save some headach. Also you might want to remove the tower braces as those are sure to be in the way.
  6. I think your going to find the rust through is mush larger that you think. As stated get all of the rust and start poking around with a pick of screw driver to see what it thin and needs to be replaced. Do it once and not need to go back in a few years and do it again.

    Brake problems

    I think I would see info it cleans up with some emery cloth
  8. Not true. My 1993 ranger with the 4.0 had rear drums.

    Car Hauler

    If the trailer is going to be inside the wood will last much longer than if left outside, either way I would use some type of sealer as well if going wood. 18’ will work but will be tight especially if it is a dovetail trailer. 18’ does not provide allot of room to move the load around to balance the weight. Last trailer I had was an 18’ with a dovetail and the one axle sat on the dovetail. Personally I would not buy a trailer with a dovetail again. If more clearance is needed loading drop the jack and jack up the front of the trailer while hitched to the tow vehicle. If the option presents itself opt for a C channel -vs- angle iron frame.

    Which idler arm

    Both links are to the same. That being said I moog has a history of quality and likely what I would choose. Also keep in mind these manufactures sell parts to your neighborhood auto parts store. No need to buy from one of the online mustang parts vendors.

    Aluminum and pot metal repair

    Seems bit pricy but if you save a party at would it wise not be usable, like the common racks in headlight buckets, it may be well worth the $65 a pound. https://www.aluminumrepair.com/buy-now/

    Aluminum and pot metal repair

    Almost seems too good to be true. I was thinking this would be perfect to fix a broken ear on a c6 I have stashed away. Might have to look into this. Thanks for sharing.

    Oil Capacity

    Hi volume is pump is more efficient than the return. Thus the sump may become uncovered at high rpm, sucking air.

    Onto My Next Issue Brakes.

    A residual pressure valve should exist in the path of the rear breaks, either in the master or inline. This keeps some pressure so the pistons in the rear cylinders do not retract all of the way. Worth checking. Also the shoes need to bee properly adjusted, slight drag. I like adjusting them close the backing up and stopping with steady but agrssive pressure for the final self adjustment. This is assuming the mechanicals inside the drum are in good working condition, make sure the adjuster have plenty of antisense as well as where the shoes and backing plates meet are lubed well.
