  1. Lower Fender repair

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    How did you handle the notched area at the bottom of the fender? The patch panel does not have the notch
  2. 200 3.3l inline 6, cant find a certain fitting.

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I would say that he PO got a little creative. The curved pipe looks to be the water heater fitting used from 68-70 on big block motors, and they used the 45 degree adaptor to fit it to your 200 motor...
  3. Lower Fender repair

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I just finished stripping the fenders on the 65 Fastback I am working on. They have the typical rust damage on the bottom rear of the fender. One has small rust, the other is a bit worse, but both are overall pretty solid. What is the best way to repair them? Do I cut the bottoms off and...
  4. Dynacorn vs. Original Tooling

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I did a side by side review of the dynacorn and original tooling tail light panels a few months ago. Original tooling fit better in all the little details. Hands down its worth the extra dollars. Which last year wasn’t a big difference in price. That said, the repro tail light panels are...
  5. 68 floor console

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    What is the bead trim have between the pad and the dash. All the consoles I have seen including mine gap there
  6. How those these bearings look?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Looks more like accelerated wear (page 24) to me.

    Where are you located? We just had our annual car show and someone had a gold 67 fastback there that was for sale.
  9. 480 inch/lb Spring Review

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Nicely done. I would highly recommend you consider upgrading to the Bilstein Shocks. They made. A big difference on my cars. Removed all the harshness. You didn’t mention if you did the arning drop. I also recommend the roller perches and the ZRay’s lower brace along with the upper export...

  11. Shock tower reinforcement plates worth it?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Reinforcement is much more important for the 67 and later cars. Ford redesigned the shock towers to fit big block motors. This leaves them susceptible to cracking. The movement of the UCA can flex the shock tower until it cracks. The dog bone reinforcement goes a long way to solve this by...
  12. Does an AC Idler pulley on 289 mount the same for a 302?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Ford regularly used spacers to align the brackets when an accessory wasn’t installed.
  13. Anyone used this Spring Compressor?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    The rental ones are not safe to use on our cars, they slip release suddenly
  14. Which Firewall to Engine Gauge feed do I need?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    You need the 8 cylinder harness. The only difference is the length of the wires. The 8 cyl harness will fit your 289 perfectly. To explain the options a bit: The 65 Mustang originally came with the Falcon dash which had a large flat speedometer and warning lights. Mid year Ford offered the...
  15. 289 timing issue

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I had a similar problem after replacing the intake manifold. Would only with timing up near 50. Pulled and redid the manifold and all was good. Apparently I had a big vacuum leak somewhere
  16. Crow's foot flare wrench for the win

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Good to know. I've had pretty good luck using PB Blaster followed by heating with a Propane torch. Then a good flare nut wrench to remove them.
  17. Anyone used this Spring Compressor?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Yes, I have one, best option out there and safest one to use
  18. Want to install 5.0 EFI engine

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    You don’t need a fancy fuel cell, just a fuel,tank set up for EFI like this one from Jegs https://www.jegs.com/i/Hyperfuel/493/47004/10002/-1?gclid=CjwKCAiA_MPuBRB5EiwAHTTvMbF1CNsiHKRri0paKKSo-Ex5Q8u71FCCcPuil6exVgFPPcTfJ8RsqhoCDewQAvD_BwE
  19. Comp Numbers 66 289 with Twisted Wedge 170 61cc

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    The aluminum heads breath so much better than the cast iron, they partially make up for t(e lower compression. I would still prefer the 53 cc heads or to mill the 63 heads down to something like 58 ccs
  20. Fuel Injected 5.0 Driving Me Nuts

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    You are looking at the right places. A rough idle is usually caused by a bad fuel mixture from a vacuum leak or IAC problems. What ECU are you using? Are you getting any trouble codes? Have you checked your fuel pressure? What IAC did you use? I have had horrible luck with aftermarket...
