    Well I’m pleased to say that the car came back to me 2 weeks ago from the paint shop. I’m so pleased with it, the paint finish from the shop is just sublime. Now for the hard work of putting it call back together. Chris

    Replacement Gages

    I have the Dakota Digital RTX Series and what an awesome kit! can give you multiple readings i.e Speed, Oil Pressure, Radiator Temp. You can also adjust these settings in your iOS or Android Phone. you can also change the color of the dials. my only gripe with this kit, is it doesn't have the running horse when you select the high beams. thats one thing that I wish that on there. other than that Dakota Digital is a winner for me.

    Replacement Gages

    Yes, the kit came with everything, Im not too into wiring, however, the shop I installed it at had no issue and was a straight forward install since my wires were original and not touched/modified prior. definitely one of my favorite things about the car. I dont need to add any additional gauges like oil pressure, water temp, this gauge kit has everything that you need, the two LCD Displays helps alot when on the road, as I get an accurate reading. I highly recommend RTX to anyone who is debating about going with this kit.

    Because the measurements on these cars vary wildly from car to car, that's something you should wait to do until your suspension, hood and fenders are installed. Unless you get custom offset wheels, I'd think you'll be using wheel adapters. Plan on rolling your fenders lips. This is a 17x9 Halibrand with around 1-1/8" spacer, and 275/40 tire.

    parking brake

    I took some 1/4" vacuum tubing and slit it down the side. Then slipped it over the parking brake cable. This way no rattle or rub marks on the nice painted floor pan.

    As said above using the GPS. Plenty of cheap Speedo Apps for your phone that work vey well. As a rule of thumb I found each tooth equates to about 5% change.

    My 1970 Mustang

    Easiest and cheapest fix is to rebuild or replace the 2v. Otherwise down the rabbit hole you go. I try to remember to do the easiest fix first. Doesn't always happen.

    69 70 rear quarter glass nylon rollers

    I built some of of uhmw plastic. I found 2 holes saws that were the correct size and built them. One for the base and one for the side that goes in the track. I drilled part way from both directions the correct depth of the original. Then I counter suck a hole in it to and put a stainless 1/4” bolt in with a lock nut. It looks large in the picture but is the same outer diameter as the factory, just round. It travels good in the track with no issues that I’ve noticed.

    Are you talking about the rollers that are installed with swaged stand off to the glass frame and slide inside the 3 rails? If so, I could not find any reproductions. I had a couple which had the springed edges broken. So I 3D printed a couple from ABS, ground the swaged part of the stand off, drilled a hole through the stand off and tapped it. Installed the 3D printed roller using the modified stand off and a bolt. Have been using them for a few years now and still working (but the rear windows do not get rolled up and down a lot).

    This was discussed on the old FE forum. I do recall that the universal cross flows are quite a bit shorter than the stock rad. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/febigblockold/viewtopic.php?f=21142&t=2478&p=15696&hilit=griffin#p15696

    Since you’ve got to Chrome the new 3D piece. What would it take to modify what you already have then rechrome the fixed piece.

    suspension/steering upgrade

    I have Street or Track Coil over set up as well. Also have the Unisteer Power steering set up and very happy with all of it. Either way, I would suggest call Shaun at Street or Track and talk to him. Great guy and knows his stuff and will not pressure you at all to buy his stuff, only provide you the info to make your decision. Good luck.

    You can move towards the front more if you place a piece of wood on top of the stand to spread out the load

    Sound like your new sharp clutch rod poked a hole on the clutch fork. As you drove it made the hole larger and larger and cause the clutch paddle go lower and lower, that just my thought.

    Well that's interesting Mid- I have the ammeter version and am not familiar- what makes the indicator light version unsuitable to run a relay coil?

    speedometer driven gear

    Don't know which one is correct, but I would start with 18 (the middle one) and check speedometer reading with GPS then go up or down if needed. At least it is easy to change the gear.

    how to wire the electric choke

    All these years, I guess I've just missed when wire 904 was mentioned as a switched 12 volt source under the hood !! Thanks, Doug

    how to wire the electric choke

    Well, I mentioned wire 904 in my previous post. It should still be in the harness, even if the regulator has been removed. That is really the only source for switched power in the engine compartment. See the bottom of the page:

    how to wire the electric choke

    Well, wire 904 Green/red stripe that goes to the regulator plug "stator" pin is live when the ignition is in "start" or "on". Since its only about an 18ga wire, I would connect that to a relay coil and use the N.O. contacts to drive the choke, wired directly from the battery.

    My pedal was also not returning fully to the stop bumper every time in the late 00's So I finally went though it all back in 2011 and found that one of the two pot-metal bushings in the the clutch & brake pedal support that pedal rod pivots on was split. I had completely rebuilt the pedal support with all new parts including a new clutch pedal shaft less than 30k miles prior and it had failed again. So, I installed a Mustang Steve Ball Bearing Retrofit Kit to replace the poorly designed factory pot metal bushing / plastic insert set up and the problem is now gone forever. There are other kits out there with roller bearings that ride directly on the clutch pedal shaft (Scott Drake's kit is one), but you want to avoid this style kit if you are not going to replace the shaft at the same time. My new shaft with less than 30k miles already had a wear groove starting to form in it, which could cause the roller bearing to prematurely fail. For the Ball Bearings, I just needed to polish it / knock the high spot down to work with Steve's Kit as these bearings have an inner race that rides on the shaft. Doug

    You could also use the female plug at the fire wall harness, currently using it on my 69 and 2- 70's

    I might add that you don't really need a primer under that truckbed liner.. It'll go right onto bare metal (as long as it is really clean and dry I always wipe with laquer thinner or IPA right before applying) and it sticks hard. Great stuff - even if a little expensive - IMO.
