    Oh really? Thanks for that, I guess the seat frame is fairly solid and this was 1969...

    Is the Pertronix I the system that goe bad if the ignition switch is on without the engine running for only a minute or so? Or has that been corrected? If you want OEM reliability there is always the Duraspark II conversion.

    A stock distributor with the proper advance curve and a pertronix I is nearly fail proof providing the dist gear is compatible with your cam.

    What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    I drove the car for the first time in... 9 years today. Just a jaunt down the road, but far enough that I ran out of gas. I don’t remember the ride being that rough. First I had to get the trunk to shut... ended up that the latch mechanism was gummed up. A little shot of brake cleaner got it moving again. My 14” air cleaner doesn’t fit - hits the distributor. Need to get an offset base or a smaller air cleaner. Anyone in the market for a never used 14” air cleaner with a 3” K&N filter and a flange height of 3”?

    I am running a Pertronix distributor. So far it’s been flawless... for the 1 mile I’ve driven since installing it.

    You need something like a mechanics stethoscope to pinpoint the source whistle. Holley carbs do not have throttle shaft bushings. Some of the old OEM Holley versions use thin Teflon bushings that fit into grooves in the throttle shafts. Usually what happens is the aluminum throttle shaft bores in the base plate wear out. On Fords, if using the original return spring setup, the primary throttle shaft bore will wear. Simply because both the throttle cable and return spring are trying to pull the throttle shaft to the rear. I've heard of whistling through on of the verturies at idle. I've also heard of leaky power valves causing whistling. But when a power valve leaks the motor also runs rich at cruise and maybe rough at idle because of a vacuum leak..

    I’ve had that before on an older street driven Holley. Could try wiggling the the throttle shaft whiles it’s whistling, to see if it changes. Likely the front 2 barrels.

    IIRC there was a cardboard panel, some of the Mustang parts suppliers sell a metal one. I purchased the metal one & installed it in my 69 Coupe. It came with sheet metal screws, but I bolted mine in.

    I should clarify - is there a metal panel missing that separates the trunk from the passenger compartment? I would imagine there would be something to stop any objects stored in the trunk from flying forward into the back of the rear seat in the event of an accident...
  12. Hey Team, long time no talk! Two part question; 1. I'm wanting to replace my Summit Ready to run Distributor with something a little better and that will last longer. My car would completely die while driving at low and high speed, this is the 2nd circuit board I had to replace so I think I need to go with a different brand and better performing. Any Suggestions? it's mainly for street use I heard Mallory or pertronix would work, but I would like to hear your suggestions. 2. Ever since I had my Holley 750 cfm, the damn thing would always whistle when revving, at times it would be intermittent, usually when cold you would not hear it but when hot you could hear it. I replaced all vacuum hoses and carb gasket but issue persists. I am not running a carb spacer as it will cause hood clearance issues. not sure if the throttle plate bushing is worn or possibly the main body is the culprit. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Current setup 351w/392w stroker Weiand Stealth intake: WND-8023WND 750 carb: HLY-0-76750BK

    Solved the leak issue with the low/reverse servo! I had trapped a random wire in the cover when I tightened it (up top, where I couldn't see), so when I removed the wire and retightened the cover, it held fluid and pressure! Took it for a 5 mile test drive, and love the car again!! IMG_2043.MOV

    They do make the adaptors. I switched my duraspark distributor to Pertronix a few years ago. Had the same issue. Duraspark was male and the pertronix was female. The adaptors were going to be as high or higher than a new wire set. I opted to just buy the new set. https://www.jegs.com/i/MSD-Ignition/121/ASY10124/10002/-1

    You could try buying a cap and rotor for a 82 5.0 Stang. pretty sure rotor will fit on dist, but not sure on cap fitting and clamping

    Thanks Ridge, I had the screws out but didn't realise the channel actually pops off allowing you to pull it out at the bottom. I'm assuming there's supposed to be a metal panel of some sort here?

    Just a thought, as I have never heard of any adapters, maybe you could measure the inside of the female plugs and buy some brass rod and make your own.

    OEM Oil Pan for 351W

    This is the pan I removed from the 351w circa 1995. The raised rib at the mains looks to me to be shorter than the Milodon I reinstalled today. I didn't take pics or measure the Milodon, but I'll be removing it tomorrow as it leaks at the rear. Spot welded filler bolt: Front of pan below: Rear of pan: Rib height:

    Swapped in a new starter today. I think the starter I pulled was the original, which is a pretty good service life. Put in a Powermaster 9603 and it’s spins so much better. Still waiting for my valence hardware though. Gonna get it plated tomorrow.

    I have a feeling that's what I'll end up doing, but I really like these red ones.... :)

    well since you are willing to order a cap, why don't you just order the correct wires instead?

    It's the 21st century with the convenience of the inter-net and on line shopping. Amazon, Rock Auto, PayPal or credit cards and any number of auto parts supplier will have your plug wires delivered to your door.
  24. Hi it's been a while as I've been enjoying the Mustang as delivered from the States but it's time for an overhaul and modification. I've collected the parts (engine, trans, diff etc) and have removed all the old running gear. I am now in the process of stripping the interior in preparation for mini tubs, chassis connectors etc and have a silly question - how does one remove the rear seat back cushion? (the one your back rests on). I want to leave all the frame work in place but take the cushion off as it's mint and don't want it damaged.

    I'm an idiot...

    The title pretty much says it all! I have a 302 with the Autolite distributor. Got some fancy new plug wires to spruce up the engine a bit. I bought them at Summit here in Atlanta. The problem is the plug wires are for a male post-type distributor. I did not realize this until I got home. There is no. way. I am going to drive back through the city to return them! Traffic is a nightmare! So is there a replacement cap I can order with possibly an adapter to convert my female cap to a male cap? I do not have the money to straight out purchase a new distributor. Anyone done this? Thanks!

  27. I'm looking for a 69 - 70 driver quality front bumper preferably in the S.E. Michigan area. I'm going to be cutting, narrowing, and painting body color so I really don't want to spend money on a new one. I do have a driver quality 68 front bumper if anyone is looking for one...

    What did you do to/for your Mustang today?

    Pulled my original worn out oil burning motor and put in a pretty decent early 70's 302 with new cam, lifters, push rods and timing chain. Haven't driven it yet, but it sounds good and holds great oil pressure. Going to run this til I figure out what I am gonna do with the original motor.
