Mike65's 69 Coupe build

Recommended Posts

I got an e mail back from AAW with the info I needed so I did the wiring hookup on the new 3G alternator & did the final install.

There are 3 wires that come out of the plug on the regulator on the alternator marked A,S, & I. A plugs goes to the power stud on the alternator, S plugs in to the alternator, & I goes to ignition, that is where the brown wire in the AAW harness goes to.

Today I installed the radiator, hooked up the cooling fans, & started to install the hoses.

With the radiator installed I have about 1" clearance between the water pump pulley bolts & the cooling fan shroud.

Good job with the clearance.  Those fans you used were perfect to avoid the water pump pulley

Thanks Vic.

Today was a rainy day & I could not work outside so I was in the garage & started wrapping the engine bay harness & where the harness runs in front of the radiator.

Thanks Tgriffin91, the compliments get me motivated to keep plugging away, except the work on the Mustang is going to be slowing to a crawl because my wife & I are looking to purchase & house in southern Virginia & sell the one we are living in & move out of NJ where the taxes are getting out of control.

Mike,

Been quietly following your build over the past year or so. Nice work! I always learn something new. I was born and raised in NJ, move out to DE in 2013. Big difference in cost. The high property taxes in NJ is like having a second mortgage. Good luck with your search and eventual move. I hope to get to see the stang, maybe at a south jersey car show before you leave the state.

Thanks Rich, where did you live in NJ?.

Gary, here are the pics of the center mount parking brake you asked for.

Here is the trans tunnel support panel & cover I made,

Here is the center mount parking brake handle installed. I used a parking brake handle from a 1987 Mustang,

Here is the hook up to the handle. I used Lokar universal parking brake cables, & Ford Racing parking brake cable front pt# - M-2810-A that hooked to the handle. The threads on the gold piece that came with the lokar cables where the cable ends attach is different threads then the Ford front parking brake cable, so I re-tapped the threads to fit the Ford front cable threads. That way I could thread the gold piece on to the threaded end of the Ford front cable & used a lock nut in the front & back of the gold piece.

This is how I routed the cables back to the drum brakes backing plates. They just hook to the drum brakes just like the stock cables.

I grew up in Piscataway and moved to Jackson in 1987. Lived there until 2013 when I moved to DE.

I miss the shore and old friends in Jersey, but otherwise I like Delaware.

I used a generic e brake cable kit with my rear brakes. Hooked it up a bit differently. Basically followed the same route as the factory cables and used the factory mount locations,, pedal and front cable.

It was a beautiful day today so I pit the Mustang up on ramps in the rear & jack stands in the front & proceeded to clean off the undercoating where the sub frame connectors are going to weld to.

Drivers side,
