  1. With the Rickster off to the paint shop, I turned my attention to the interior and the motor. I had posted a question on the interior forum because I discovered the dash had 3 odd holes down to the left of the headlight switch. From my query, I learned that switches in that panel would have been for a convertible top, or associated with the factory convenience group. This car being a Mach 1, and without the factory convenience group, it's unlikely that those holes are factory. Also, they are kind of irregularly spaced, not lined up well, and off level, so I decided to eliminat

  2. Thanks for the tip. However I did change these from the ones that were on the car, not originals, to the Halogens sealed beam ones just a few years ago, so I'm not expecting any problems, but one never knows. Caution is always a good thing on these cars.

  3. I just got an email from Addco and the tracking number for my rear bar, so it should be here soon as long as it doesn't get hung up at the border by Customs. Once I get it and we finally get rid of the damn snow and it warms up a bit, I'll be on it like a duck on a June bug. I'll for sure get the measurements and post here for you (and maybe others).

  4. Thanks. I just ordered the Hella 002395801 kit and the Sealight H4/9003/HB2 LED's, so I guess I'll find out in about a week. Amazon shipping in Canada seems slow these days, no doubt due to Covid.

  5. All of mine are black have 8 of them 72 & 73. I thought the blue ended in 70?? The brackets for PS and AC use the Manganese Phosphate coating like the hood hinges, upper shock mount, hood latch, parking brake and gas pedal bracket do. I do mine at home but some plating shops have the solution. Gun shops use it and they call it Parkerizing. Ford used manganese phosphate and GM used zinc phosphate. You will need a big stainless steel container to heat the solution in mixed with distilled water. 190 - 200 deg. F. I seem to recall. Next time I do some will take pics of the steps and process. Y

  6. Confirming this. The old way they handled digital rights was 100% DOA on the newest Apple versions (Mac and iPads/iPhones) as well; newer version of the Forel product works great.

  7. That CD is still out there. Forel has improved their licensing so you don't have to use that frustrating digital licensing program they had.

  8. If you go to the Wiki section at the top of the page you will find the schematics for all 3 years. The 72 and 73 don't really have the wiring color code spelled out. You will find this in the 71 manual. The color code and wire number is the same for all 3 years. So if you look at wire #60 in the 71 schematic it is shown to be black with light green dot. It is the same for the 72 and 73. I know it's a pia but you can take a few minutes and go through the 71 and copy the codes off each page. Also, there are more wires than colors so they used the main primary colors (red, blue, black etc

  9. Wow, Chris that turned out great. The P/S bracket on my cars was also unpainted, so that is a mirror image of what was on my Mustangs and Torinos. Except for a few Saginaw applications, this was the corporate PS pump for automotive and light truck applications from 65/ until the Ford C II pump was used starting in 1978. With the sheer volume of pumps and components used during this time frame, it's not surprising to find two different color metal reservoirs for production and service parts. The teal pumps on my '71 Mustangs and '72 Torinos were original to those cars.

  10. Unplug the old ones, plug the new ones right in. No harness or adapter needed.

  11. I'll second that, droptop73. I think this is a change I definitely want to make even though I don't do a lot of night driving in the Mach. Then I can say ALL my lights are now LED type!! (with the exception of the ALT bulb in the idiot light cluster)

  15. At home on 4-20-21 Sally has passed away from Multi Myeloma bone cancer. Her battle was fought hard and long for 12 years. Within the last year she has had a "Car t cell transplant" and a "Bone marrow stem cell transplant". Both to NO avail from this ruthless cancer. Sally and I were married for 36 years, have 5 children and 14 grandchildren. She loves her 71 mach 1 and often helped me to rebuild it. She tells me there is a mustang heaven and once asked DON from Ohio mustang to be sure and bring his parts with him. Attached is a picture of when we took the Mach for ice cream. Car was not
