  1. Yes it is, and yes it is! Even more exciting, my car was chosen to be in the Mustang Featured Area at the May 2 Caffeine & Octane! Gulp! Time to get to cleaning!!
  2. Not today, but over the weekend: Just got the car back from the shop after the accident. Installed a new FlowKooler aluminum water pump, and took her for a spin!
  3. Thanks for the pics! My shop guy said the top guy wasn’t finished yet, so I sent him your pics to show the guy as he finishes.
  4. Good evening! Starting to get the car back from the shop after the big accident this summer. The shop guy put a new top on, and I have a question: in the attached picture, you can see that the foam is visible on the end of the windlace. Is this normal? Should it be sealed somehow? If so, is it something I can do once I get the car back so I can get it sooner, or do I need to have the top guy come back out to the shop. Thanks!
  5. Thanks, everyone! That stinks that they aren’t reproduced!
  6. Hey, everyone! I had my convertible top frame crunched in an accident. Insurance is covering all repairs, but we are having trouble tracking down a replacement top frame. The usual sources have 68s, but no 69s. Anyone have a source? thanks!
  7. Thanks! By the way, my vacuum problem wasn’t a vacuum problem. Pretty sure I had water in the gas! It’s purring after filling up again, using a water treatment, and putting in a new filter.
  8. What is this black canister/valve that is connected to a line going into the firewall as well as to the heater hose that is going into the heater core?
  9. Yes, it’s from the manifold. I’m just curious as to HOW it works, from an academic standpoint. BTW, I’m pulling good vacuum (17-19” at idle), and I can’t replicate what happened yesterday (of course).
  10. So I’m going to be tracking down some vacuum leak today. I know what to check, but I have a question for the knowledgeable folks here that have helped me in the past! When driving yesterday, the engine would sputter and want to die when I stepped on the brakes at a stoplight. I’m going to check the booster and check valve, and I admit I’m not fully versed on how power brake systems work, so what is happening with the power brakes that would cause engine sputtering?
  11. Got the car back from the transmission shop yesterday. Rebuilt C4, after losing all forward gears. Wow, it has more power now than in the previous 8 years I've driven it! My 17 year old griped at me for smoking the tires as I pulled out of his work when I stopped to show him that it was working! :) Installed new front parking brake cable, now does anyone have any idea why the foot pedal doesn't seem to be catching when I push it to the floor?
  12. CRAP! Power top convertible. I was putting the top down yesterday, and there was a weird sound, and the top had trouble dropping the rest of the way. It finally went down. Today I went to raise it, and the passenger side wouldn't raise. I manually raised it, and noticed that the bracket connected to the lift cylinder had broken! Does anyone know if I can just get a new pillar and replace it, or do I need to replace the entire frame (please don't let it be the entire frame).
  13. A black wire leading from the harness into the solenoid. I thought it was a feed from the alternator, so had removed it. Apparently not!
