  1. Take care & get well soon. Getting old sucks.
  2. I would just cut out the bad metal & replace only what is needed.
  3. These are the Dakota Digital gauges I am going to use in my Coupe. 1969- 70 Ford Mustang VHX Instruments (dakotadigital.com)
  4. Welcome back. Nice pair of Mustangs.
  5. The one I am using is from a 2000 V-6. I can not tell you how it cools since my Mustang is not running at this time.
  6. I have the Contour dual electric fans. If you have a 20" radiator, you have to use the 24" radiator along with the 24" radiator upper & lower mounts.
  7. Steffan, welcome to the forum. Beautiful 69 Mach-1.
  8. I also ran the wiring under the fenders, I drilled new holes in the rear inner fender panels below the hood hinges where the harness goes under the fender, & used existing holes in the front inner fender panels where the harness comes back in to the engine compartment. Passengers side rear inner fender panel exit point. Passengers side front inner fender panel entrance point. Drivers side rear inner fender exit point. Drivers side front inner fender panel entrance point.
  9. I installed one one my 69 Coupe & had no problem with the installation.
  10. I used the Tech Flex 1/2" & 3/8" braided wire wrap on my new AAW wiring harness.
  11. Her are a couple pics of the 68 GT Coupe I had back in the 80's.
  12. I am using 3/8" Nicopp line for my fuel lines. https://agscompany.com/product/nicopp-nickel-copper-brake-fuel-transmission-line-tubing-coil-3-8-x-25/
  13. Ed, the harness is not that hard to do, I am in the process of doing a AAW harness in my 69 Coupe. I looks intimidating but do a little at a time & you will get through it.
  14. My story starts in 1967 when I was 9 years old. My Uncle wanted to buy a new car & he narrowed it down to a 1967 Mustang & a 1967 Cougar. My younger brother & I wanted him to buy the Mustang & my 2 older brothers wanted him to buy the Cougar, he ended up buying the Cougar. My oldest brother bought the Cougar from our Uncle & I spent many days riding in that car. My next older brother bought a 1970 Mustang Coupe which I bought from him when he decided to get another car. The 70 Coupe was totaled by a drunk driver so of course I had to have another Mustang which ended up being a 1969 Coupe. A few years later my next older brother bought a 68 Mustang GT Coupe from our Cousin, which I in turn bought from him when he wanted a new car. I kept that 68 GT for about 15 years. After the 68 GT I bought a 65 Fastback for my wife which she ended up selling after about 10 years when her interests turned from cars to motorcycles. After buying the 65 Fastback for my wife I acquired a 69 Coupe as a rolling shell that was being stripped for parts & I have since been putting it back together & modifying it for the past 18 years. As a side note my other cousin had a 69 Mach-1 with a 390 back in the mid 70's which was also an inspiration for me to buy Mustangs.
  15. In Horse Pasture, just west of Martinsville. We are about 10 - 15 minutes from the Martinsville Speedway.
  16. I did not know that place was there. My wife & I drive right past there going to our house in southern Va.
  17. I have the round one. Would you like me to open it up & check before you pay shipping on something you can not use?.
  18. I have a complete dash clock from a 69 Mach-1 that I do not need if you think it will work for parts you are welcome to it. Jut pay for the shipping.
  19. When I started the rebuild on my 69 Coupe I ditched the leaking factory P/S & went to manual steering & added the Opentracker Racing roller idler arm. With the engine & trans in the car with the car sitting still I can turn the steering wheel with ease with one hand. I am guessing it will turn even easier once I get the F/E aligned properly. I also have a stock size steering wheel from a 1980's full size Bronco in my Mustang. https://opentrackerracing.com/product/roller-idler-arm-manual-steer-1967-1970/
  20. Ed, it should not be any more complicated then what I did to my 69 Coupe which was originally equipped with a C-4 auto even though my car was an almost bare shell when I acquired it. I also installed a hydraulic clutch & had a roller bearing conversion performed on the pedal hanger.
  21. Why an X pipe instead of a H pipe?.
  22. Hedman does not make a H pipe for the 88408 headers just 17" long extensions. Should I get the extensions & then have an exhaust shop make a h pipe to connect to the rest mid pipes, or have the exhaust shop make the pipe from the headers to the mid pipes?. I was also thinking of buying the H pipe from JBA for their 302 shorty headers w/T-5 trans & seeing if it would fit, or modify a stock h pipe?. Ideas, suggestions?. https://pertronixbrands.com/products/jba-performance-exhaust-1651sh-2-5-stainless-steel-mid-pipe-h-pipe-for-1650-289-302-t-5-transmission?variant=31797095366692
  23. Welcome to the forum. I did the same conversion to my 69 Coupe. I used the T-5 trans out of a 1987 Mustang, purchased a new clutch pedal, had the pedal hanger converted to a roller bearing (much smother operation) & installed a Modern Driveline hydraulic clutch conversion kit, with a Hurst shifter. Here are links to the stuff I used on my conversion. https://www.moderndriveline.com/shop/shifter-accessories/shift-levers/hurst/shift-lever-hurst-chrome-classic-style-10x5-5x1-3/ https://www.moderndriveline.com/shop/hydraulic-clutch-kits/master-cylinders/ford-master/mustang-ford-master/69-70-mustang-cougar-hydraulic-clutch-master-kit/ https://www.moderndriveline.com/shop/pedals-and-clutch-linkage/clutch-pedals/ford-clutch-pedals/oe-ford-pedals/mustang-cougar/69-70-mustang-cougar-clutch-pedal/
