  1. Tim, if Randy does not have them I do... but see what Randy has first Don, thanks for chiming in - we will do so ::thumb:: The harness provides constant (non-ignition switched) power. Used on verts to power the roof motor switch to the hydraulic motor. As mentioned previously the automatic seat back release actuators and the hood light (both part of the convenience group option), as well as power windows (the windows use a relay located near the brake booster that is triggered on by the ignition switch in the On and Accessory positions). Finally, on cougars provided power

  2. Disclaimer: I'm new to restoring Mustangs, so I had a hard time with coming up with an offer. I've seen some for sale and at the time that I was talking to the seller, the number that popped in my head for one that needed to be restored was 300. I got excited when I saw a picture of it and mentally compared it to the one we have. I may have overpaid but to me this green one (still original paint) was worth the 500 that I offered. He accepted and we are happy with it as it is in far better shape than the one we have, hopefully our painter agrees. I think you did good on that purcha

  3. Sorry for getting in on this one so late. I was a tool & die maker for many years so I have had to deal with broken bolts, taps and tape extractors since back in the 1960's. MY FIRST COMMENT IS NEVER NEVER TRY TO USE AN EXTRACTOR TO REMOVE A BROKEN RUSTED IN BOLT. At best they are a 50 - 50 chance of breaking them on smaller than 1/2" bolts. Rusted in bolts should always be drilled. Yes if you have fresh metal and break a bolt using a L.H. drill bit will sometimes yield the bolt screwing itself out by the drill bit grabbing and screwing it out. Once you have a broken tap or scr

  4. So one more lesson is that we shouldn't trust new parts and we should double check them all.

  5. I saw one last weekend. It underwent a color change from its original dark green to an owner preferred white this year. I don't know if it is known on this site.

  7. Thanks for this photo, but golly! Correct me if I'm wrong, but that looks like an original a/c compressor. I'm interested in the finish. Powder-coated, or is that just how nice it looks cleaned up? If it's not the original compressor, "oops". That is the original AC pump. The owner had the ac all gone through and sent it out to be rebuilt. I’m not sure where? But I did paint the pulley, and detailed the compressor housing. I did powdercoat the brackets too.

  8. I rarely drill them anymore. I weld a nut to the stud sticking out. And use a ratchet to remove like a normal bolt. Even if the bolt is broke almost flush I can usually get my mig welder down into the nut and fill it with weld to penetrate the broken bolt. The high heat helps loosen the bolt also. Works for me almost every time.

  9. Roy, what model year and what year mounts and perches ? Some say that engine will sit 1'' lower if 1973 motor mounts and perches are used. that could also mean that there could be a difference in shrouds between model years. Just thinking out loud. Boilermaster I ordered 73 mounts. It very well could be the problem. The 73 motor mounts are called captive mounts and were designed to meet new federal regulation that year. They are taller. Too compensate for the taller mount Ford lowered the frame mount/perch. See the two versions of the perches in the pic below. Ther
