  1. I did this to my convertible. It cools great, and is perfect for parades, where you have lost of low-speed driving and sitting still.
  2. Thanks! The ignition switch is on the dash. This is the switch I replaced: https://www.cjponyparts.com/cj-classics-turn-signal-switch-wiring-fixed-column-1969/p/TSW23/
  3. Thanks for the response! No, I have a 69 convertible. I replaced the turn signal wiring in the steering column at the same time I put in the sequentials. My front signals are bulbs (and blink slowly). I have LEDs coming for those, along with an electronic hazard flasher relay. Dash lights are all LEDs, and all work except for the turn indicators. All exterior lights are bulbs EXCEPT rear sequential tails, and reverse lights. All lights function normally. No, I do not have hood turn signals.
  4. Did you ever find a solution to this? I'm having the same issue!
  5. Background: New circuit panel installed 2 years ago, LEDs installed in dash and tested with meter. Rear LED sequential turn signal lights installed with electronic flasher at the same time. High beam, instrument, brake lights all work perfectly. New turn signal switch in steering column. Exterior turn signals work well (front lights are slow to blink, though). Hazards work (original relay is there) The turn signal indicator lights in the dash will not light up. I have noticed that when starting the car, the Brake Warning light comes on (normal) and the green turn signal lights will light briefly. My question is why the interior turn signal lights are not coming on at all when I indicate a turn? Would the emergency flasher relay need to be replaced with a newer electronic one?
  6. After changing the water pump, I no longer had coolant pooling on top of the timing cover behind the pump, but now I have oil pooling! Got everything cleaned off, then started the car and watched. Started seeing oil begin weeping through a tiny hairline crack on top of the timing cover and running to the area where the pooling was located. Stopped the engine, cleaned everything off, sprayed some carb cleaner just to wipe it down, and then applied a small thin bit of Quick Steel high heat putty to the crack and smoothed it like drywall mud. I let it sit for two hours (package said one), and then fired it back up. Voila! No more oil pooling! I feel good about my fix, as the timing chain cover does not have a lot of pressure to it, and it was just a tiny crack. That was 4 days ago. I've driven it every day, and have been checking. Still no leak! Hooray! The picture show the pooling, although there was usually much more than this! The crack was up at the top of the cover, near the bolt.
  7. 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!!
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. Thanks, everyone! That stinks that they aren’t reproduced!
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
