  1. Who would've thought

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    Cool rendering, but it hasn't been built.
  2. Parking brake reminder

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I need something to remind me that I've got the parking brake engaged, driving until I smell my brake shoes is not going to work as a long term solution. I've got a 65 with stock equipment and was thinking there must be a way of adding a small momentary switch on my brake handle assembly near...
  3. Decals

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Maybe you can buy magnetic sheets, stick the decals to that and cut them out.

    daddyohood, It's a 2.86
  5. 65/66 Radiator Support (Hood) Seal

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    On my 65 the ribbed bead is opened and it is hooked around the trailing edge of the radiator support, then stapled into place. So your orientation is correct but it's not "hooked" on to the trailing edge. Is the bead closed or opened?
  6. Mustang station wagon?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I gotta say I like it. And some years back I saw a 65,66 pickup I think they called a Mustaro. Didn't like that so much.
  7. Best way to remove 50+ year old exhaust manifold bolts without breaking them

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I you'd Woodchucks technique with Mapp gas on 33 year old bolts and didn't have a single problem, not even close.

    Thanks 22GT. I'm going to try and do some testing first, then it may go to Dan.

    Thanks Magnus, I checked and it does open.

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Thanks Woodchuck, that's a little discouraging. As you know the 7 1/4 inch rear end is not well supported in the aftermarket. If I have to, I'll look for an entire axle with a 3.20 ratio, the 3.50's are rare to non-existent. I really just want to get the best performance out of the setup I...

    Fitch, just saw your post after my reply. Thanks for the step by step. I did the tune up with a timing light and dwell tach to shop manual specs, but I'm guessing age, wear and tear have effected things. Why would the dwell be effected by changing the advance? Thanks. Gregg

    Tony, my carb spacer has an unused port I could use for manifold vacuum. Should the vacuum connected to the distributor for this test? 1ofamillion+, I hadn't thought about checking the linkage. Thanks. Fitch, sorry for the misspelling. 65fstbkpieces, I don't think I'm ready to send it...

    The fuel pump is a new original style pump, I could test it. All the plugs read normal light grey/tan after 250 miles. I don't know about the advance, the distributor hasn't been touched since purchased other than service parts, but the shaft didn't have any slop when I had it out. I...

    You won't have to drill. It's a knock-out.
  15. Restoration Expert Statement Needed

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    This is for small claims??
  16. New T5 grinding into gears

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    "I do believe that you are completely on track here... however with only one adjustment point on the '65 z-bar setup I don't know how to get it to the sweet spot. " Actually there are two adjustment points, the upper and lower clutch rods can be adjusted.
  17. Clutch Pedal Stuck on Floor

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    289GT, That spring isn't in my 1965 shop manual, it's a 66 detail, that's probably why I hadn't seen it before, but thanks. I was considering something like that before I came up with my pedal stop. It seems to work well but if I change my mind after some miles, maybe I'll go that way. BTW...
  18. Clutch Pedal Stuck on Floor

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Is this a stock clutch pedal? I have a stock pedal & z-bar arrangement in my 65 6 cylinder T-5 conversion. I had trouble with the pedal over-traveling and then getting sucked to the floor. For me I just needed something to limit travel. I threaded the upper rod all the way down and used a...

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    65 goldcoupe, I just did a T5 swap in my 65 6 cylinder and the clutch pedal pressure is quite light. Something seems very wrong in your set-up. I had to tweek my z-bar so the upper rod would clear the firewall penetration without rubbing. But now it's all good. Personally I can't imagine...
  20. No Power but Good Battery

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Woodchuck beat me to it. Check the big plug on the firewall just to the right of the master cylinder.
