This is my first post. I just got done fully rebuilding my 69 mustangs 302. It's now completely installed in the car and looks amazing. Only one problem, it won't start :( I have tried everything I can think of. Here's what I've done so far: Starter successfully turns the engine Spark plugs fire Timing is properly set Electric Holley fuel pump pumps fine (maybe too fine?) I can see fuel cleanly spraying in carb Rocker arms have the proper gap You would think this would all equal a properly operating engine. Only other things I can think of are that maybe the car has bad gas, it hasn't run in almost a year; or maybe the engine is flooded. Does anyone have any ideas?
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in starting a registry of surviving '69 mustangs. I have a 69 Convertible in a rare color, and have owned it for 3 full show seasons, but have yet to see another 69 convertible, yet another 69 of any shape painted silver jade. It is easy to tell how many 69's were made, but I wonder how many survive! I am not sure what would be involved, but I think a page on here would be a neat way to have people list their cars. Please comment! -
well i am new to the site, but i own a 1969 mustang so i thought i'd sign up =P, down to business, i have a C4 automatic trans in the car now with a 302 V8 not a boss, its all stock. I am wanting to swap that out for a manual transmission, not really picky on 3/4/5 speed, just want the easiest swap possible, i understand i'm going to have to put a clutch and all that in i'm just wondering what way would be the easiest? and what transmission would you guys recommend, and how would you recommended me going about doing it? any and all help is appreciated thanks a lot!!! kfish
