  2. After Market Guages

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I have a set of Auto-Meter Phantom guages that just recently went out. I took them out this weekend looking for an Instrument panel voltage regulator but there was not one. Does that mean there is only a 2.5amp fuse to protect the guages? Over the last 2 weeks I replaced a bad coil and installed...
  3. Is it safe to move my car?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I bought a cheap Harbor Freight welder and tried a few pieces of scrap metal and burned a hole right trough. I have watched u-tube videos for months and I don't seem to be getting any better. I have a friend who is a professional welder and a real car guy and he was looking at the car and the...
  4. Is it safe to move my car?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I recently removed my rusty floor pans from front to back in an effort to weld in new ones but realized my welding skills are lacking. Now I need to put the car on a car trailer and move it to a shop to get them welded on. The middle tunnel is still there but the pans and seat risers have been...
  5. Who do i ship my car with?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I shipped mine from Florida to California With United Road because they are the biggest of the shippers and I knew I was not going to get scammed. They were fine, although when called them halfway through the process they could not tell me where my car was. I thought that was a little strange.
  6. Car won't idle for more than 45 seconds

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    The trans fluid leaks out of the back of the tranny where the drive shaft attaches so I bought a new rubber seal. I watched a few videos on replacing it and it looks pretty straight forward. The car has been sitting for 6 mos and I just want to drive it for a while before I potentially shut it...

    When I wired the chock to the Stator terminal it seemed that the butterfly would never completely open. I bought a Manual choke carb. I REPLACED THE COIL AND THE CAR IS RUNNING LIKE A CHAMP. Thanks for all the advice especially the person who suggested I start off replacing small parts before...
  8. Granada Front disc brake caliper identification

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    You are right the fluid looks awful. Any recos on the best fluid to use? My assumption is the PO has the correct lines going to the front and rear.

    That was the picture I was referencing, I can see the piston exposed. The calipers seem to be working with just a little drag.

    Here is a picture of the calipers on my 66 fastback. Does this help identify it? When I take the car out and let it coast out of the driveway it does fine then all of the sudden I hear a loud clang and the car almost completely comes to a halt on a fairly steep street. when I replaced the pads...

    Any info will help. The PO put Granada front disc brakes on my fastback and I need to replace the calipers. I bought new rotors and pads that fit fine but the the front right caliper now slams shut when I take the car out. I need help locating a part number for the calipers. I located a caliper...

    I was running a hot wire to the starter solenoid from my new carb w/ an electric choke and started to experience a new problem. The car would start and idle fine. When taking the car for a drive, The car would start to die sooner and sooner each trip, It was difficult to get it started then...
  15. Bad Ignition switch?????????????

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    1st, the car would drive for a mile or 2 then instantly turn off. It was hard to get it started but it would eventually. Now the car starts like a champ, idles for 30 seconds and instantly turns off. It immediately starts after this. No stumble, no hesitation just off. Do you think it might be...
