  1. Thanks kcmash, the manual and a video for a 71 door disassembly said allen head screws. Tried 1/4 and 5/16, neither seemed to work so went up to a thin 3/8 socket but the fit was pretty snug, didn’t want it to get stuck, luckily i have a set of deep sockets, tried the 3/8 and that was it thanks again
  2. Hi i have a 1972 Mach 1 with standard interior, nothing but arm rest and door handle, am trying to get door panel off but seems like armrest is preventing me, there are screw holes on the bottom of the arm rest but it doesn’t look screws in there, can someone tell me how to get the door panel / armrests off? thanks Thomas
  3. Ok, this may be a dumb question but, i have been running un-leaded in my 1972 mustang (that is why i bought a 72, i didn't want to mess with lead additives). I was looking at the 72 owners manual to see what octane was recommended and it says that all 1972s are designed to operate on "regular" gasoline. To me, regular means leaded. What should i be using? Thanks. Thomas
  4. Hi, is there anyone in the general area of Quakertown, PA that knows where i can get gas without ethanol? i know the Wawa up by I80 has it but that is a little too far to go for gas. Thanks for the help. BTW, for those of you who were helping me with the idling/stumbling problem, whoever said vacuum leak wins, every carburetor gasket was leaking. rebuilt the carb and it runs fine now. Thomas
  5. I always get my parts from NPD, never had any problems EV
  6. Is it ok to blow out the carb passages with the canned compressed air?
  7. Thanks. I guess i will just do what the instructions i have says. Maybe they used 3 different winder mechanisms, one for each year. On the bright side, I have a pair of coupe quarter windows if either of you need them. Thomas
  8. I have been buying parts from ebay and aftermarket to convert my sportsroof rear quarter windows to roll-down. I have questions and as Mad Max would say "you have the knowing of a lot of things". i have bought supposed complete sets and a lot of parts and pieces plus aftermarket stuff (but i would like to stay stock). finally getting ready to do this (sorting parts out and cleaning them) going by the VERY complete instructions from a guy who already did this to his. i got all the parts and extra parts laid out (i have multiple of everything) and noticed that i have 3 different kinds of roll down mechanisms. I thought ebayers were sending me the wrong stuff as maybe they didn't know their parts. But, the instructions i have show one roll down mechanism, the Mustang Authentic Restoration Guide shows another and the 1972 shop manual shows a third. Does anyone know if there is a certain one that is prefered or will they all work? Thanks Thomas Hanson
  9. On the 351c Q code, is the longer choke tube (The one that goes to the vacuum fitting on the carb) Supposed to be loose where it connects to the manifold under the choke? Thanks TCH
  10. Hi, i have a 72 Q code ram air. I want a good maintenance free carb I can just slap on that will work with the ram air. Any suggestions? Thanks Thomas Hanson’s
  11. Sorry, i should have know better. The car was sitting for about 3 years. i started it a few times to get the engine warmed. starts ok, idles ok at 16 on the vacuum guage. i had a friend replace the upper gasket on the the carb because he said it was causing a vacuum leak. now, car won't drive under any kind of load. no matter how i ease into it when i give it some gas it stalls out. the car is the original ford 4300, original distributor, new spark plugs and wires. fuel line is clear, new fuel filter accelerator pump seems ok, i haven't checked the distributor. only thing i noticed is the gasket he replaced and the front of the carb is wet with gas. not a carb guy, don't know how to check the float. hope that is enough to go off of. thanks, Thomas
  12. Hi, i have a 1972 351 Q code, it starts Nad idles ok Vacuum guage is steady at 16, but when i try to Take it for a drive it keeps stalling out Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks Thomas
  13. Sounds like a possibility can you email me at Tomhanson1@comcast.net
