  1. Lubricated my Manual Steering Box..WOW !

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Hmmmm, let me see if I can recall where I worked in 1995. Ummm. No. Too long ago. Something to do with cars though. Pretty sure.
  2. Issue with upper control arm removal :/

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Kit? You must be think of something else. The Arning (Shelby) Drop is merely two holes drilled on each side of the car the allow you to lower the upper control arms a bit for improved handling. You need a template (I just printed mine on paper from a PDF) and a drill bit. And a drill. And the...
  3. How to avoid a money pit... (disregard title)

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I didn't even buy my '67 as a car. It's a project for me to work on, piddle with, etc and otherwise usefully occupy time I meant otherwise have to spend on activities I enjoy less. "Nope, can't watch Hallmark Christmas movies with ya right now honey, gotta get these suspension parts blasted so I...
  4. Seat interchangeability

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I have a '66 (Pony) seat in the back of my '67 coupe. There's just a slight gap on either end where I can get my fingers in. So I suspect the seat would fit the other way but it would be very tight to the point you might have to wedge it. But obviously conjecture. It may be someone here has...
  5. I like these wheels

    Mod and Custom Forum
    They're telling me the equivalent of the old tools I had use of are supposed to be in the works. Said that last week too. But I have said I would hang in for while and see and so I shall. We have to keep in mind that the old forum was run for fun. Nowadays it's owned and run by a business. And...
  6. 2013 Escape Battery Replacement

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    On the '13 remove the airbox and slide it out the front. Awkward and annoying but not actually all that difficult. '18's I haven't looked at.
  7. I like these wheels

    Mod and Custom Forum
    OK, it seemed odd. Like I said, I'd be happy to get your old name back and sort out your post credits (if you wanted) but my hands are tied here these days. It seems management has little or no interest in letting the volunteer moderators do such things for people any more. Perhaps if some...
  8. I like these wheels

    Mod and Custom Forum
    Yeah? How'd the name change happen but still with the "joined in 2009"? I feel like I missed something. Not long ago moderators could help people regain accounts, change names, fix post counts, etc. Now all that's gone and such work has to be handed over to the tech support people so I may well...
  9. Issue with upper control arm removal :/

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I don't like working with springs being held compressed so I would do everything I could without the spring (compressed) in the way. The idea getting it all ready to go as much as possible and doing the spring almost last so as to be actually working with the compressed spring as little as...
  10. looking at buying this 68

    New Member Introductions
    Looks worth it to me, going by what I can see. Now I can't see inside the car and under the car, where rust can lurk under the nicest of paint jobs. Somebody spent some money on this car in parts at least. An "Eleanor" hood. The front valance. "Shelby" style side scoops and rear spoiler. Last...
  11. I like these wheels

    Mod and Custom Forum
    Ummm, lack of practice? :unsure: No seriously, NICE picture and added info you brought. Suddenly. Really, 10 years with one post?
  12. Lubricated my Manual Steering Box..WOW !

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I use CV axle grease which is NLGI #1 or #1.5 usually. Easy to find.
  13. Issue with upper control arm removal :/

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    If you're after getting the upper arm off, I'd say at this point to let off the spring compressor and the spring should relax on out of there. Might need a little wiggle help at the bottom but I believe it will come out. Keep your picture so you have a reference. I think you need to grab a bit...
  14. How To Add A Sig Pic (Tutorial)

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    This thread isn't really relevant anymore due to a forum software change. Unsticking it.
  15. Fuel Injected 5.0 Driving Me Nuts

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Another vote for focusing on the IAC.
  16. Need a new (to me) car

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    No buckets but a consideration for us was to be able to haul eight. Which narrows the choices a LOT. A bench front seat Expedition. 4.6 and two wheel drive it's not bad on gas at all for a vehicle of its size. Does better than I expected in our modest SC snow. Has pulled a pop up camper and full...
  17. Fit almost any engine to a GM tranny

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Our local transmission shop owner calls his 10 bay shop "the house that GM built'. Specifically he means all the 700R4's and 4L60E's that were rebuilt to pay for it versus the few other brands, Ford, Honda, etc. that came through. Given that kind of reputation, familiar to every single...
  18. 'Race Ramps' for service work

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I like the DIY cribbing versions better. First, they are a lot cheaper. Then they are well proven. For example very similar cribbing is what they use to support entire buildings sometimes. And a big plus for me is that if you don't have a jack that will raise the car up that high in one shot...
  19. Need User Images for New Banner(4 years ago)

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I modified the title of this thread to reflect that it applied to a forum that no longer exists in hopes it might perhaps slow the deluge of pictures volunteered for a new banner that the current ownership apparently has no interest in making.
  20. Who should work on transmission?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I would prefer specialists myself. Say you take it Joe's restoration shop. Joe take sit in even though he doesn't really do transmissions or rear ends specifically. So he ships it over the Bob's transmissions and Bob gives him a good price on the work but he doesn't really do rear ends either...
