  1. It's been a long time coming but the 408C is singing. Still have to connect the hydraboost, hydraulic clutch, power steering and the rest of the exhaust. Didn't want to run it long without the PS pump not connected. Made sure she had good pressure and 60PSI on the fuel. She turned right over with barely touching the key. Now to my discredit...I have a couple different hands in this pot to start troubleshooting but I'm sure it's either a single wire not correctly installed and a setting not set correctly or all of the above. I set all the Dakota digital settings to BUS. The Da

  2. Found some old ball joint removal tools that hardly never fit on any vehicle but on the old Mustang they fit like they should - bingo! Never waist some old tool Some turns on the bolts and out they popped without hammering and fiddling around Next will be the shocks, upper and lower control arms and the strut rods...

  3. Been a while since I updated, but work has been continuing. The trunk came into focus and I went to work. There were a few spots on one side that had pinholes, so I dropped the tank and cut the metal out and welded new in. I worked the welds and the floor so it was smooth and you couldn’t see the repair areas, then lots of cleaning and sanding ensued. Then more cleaning and sanding. Then more. Finally today I primered it all, sprayed some white/clear where it needed to be, then sprayed the area to be splatter painted with dark gray followed by splatter paint. The dark gray allowed the co

  5. Tim, Just one last note on the filter material for the vent. Just to be sure, take a piece of the material you plan on using and soak it in petrol for an extended time just to be sure it will not dissolve or break up. I don't think it will, but best to be sure. Anytime you're introducing a material into a solvent based fluid, do a test over a few days at least. Use a glass jar with a lid to prevent evaporation.

  7. Ken, if you don't find a decent one - perhaps Don has one in a decent shape though - I heard good things about the Jeep ones. I searched for my father and his all original 1973 T5 convertible and came also to the conclusions of Steve (who has summed up the relevant informations very very good). You also have to do minor work to get it fit perfect then

  11. This is what I believe they were referring to for scotch brite. They also come in very-very fine, but I don’t have the part number handy for that one.

  12. If the car is as original as it sounds to be, I suggest photographing every inch of the car before you do any repairs/changes. They will help you, and others, in the future. Just a suggestion. Chuck

  13. Tim, Nice pictures that tell a story. It looks like the crud in the old tank is more like sediment rather than rust residue. For the cost, still not a bad idea to replace the tank with a nice new shiny one. Your original fuel sender filter looks exactly the same as the one I took out of mine, rotten. You know, thinking back to when I took my tank out, I'm pretty sure mine had nothing (left) in the vent cap either. I think I was going on what others were saying that there was a filter material installed to stop back splash into the tube. If a small amount of fuel were to get into that tube

  14. Hello Ken, I've never seen one of those repaired other than the time-honored black duct tape for daily drivers. A few years back, forum member gmadrid had researched and found this duct (Crown Automotive, part # J-3231980) that is a replacement for some Jeep vehicles. Ford had released some service flex ducts after receiving feedback from fleet owners who were spending way too much money replacing the plastic duct and flex duct assemblies.

  18. I had thought about getting something like this Kenwood Bluetooth Amp. I could put the amp in the trunk and keep the controller in the console and just run its own speakers. So you could keep the original stuff in the dash and just use this on its own. https://www.crutchfield.ca/p_113M1824BT/Kenwood-KAC-M1824BT.html?awkw=298183808798&awat=pla&awnw=g&awcr=190568851671&awdv=c&awug=9001404

  19. I have the Retrosound Hermosa. I think it is a good option if you want to keep the "classic" look. The only issue is that is not that intuitive to use because in order to keep a classic look the buttons are not labeled. For speakers I have Kickers 5x7 in the doors and 6x9 at the rear. I also added a hidden Kenwood narrow subwoofer to the passenger kick panel area. The subwoofer made a whole world of difference in sound. You can't get too much bass out of the door speakers. I recently added tweeters to the dash.

  20. Years ago, I owned a beautiful 1930 Model A Coupe, and was an active member in the San Fernando Valley Chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America. I drove my car everyday ,although it was as clean or cleaner than most, but no show car. At one point, I actually worked at Thee Antique Ford Shop, in Reseda, for a man who owned four himself, and did concourse restorations, to radiator flushes, on A's and early V8s . Interesting point, is that during this time, the judging standards changed from allowing Cad plated engine hardware, to saying that Black Oxide was now the appropriate fastener
