  1. Hi, which of these is right latch for 71-73. I installed the one with the hump, but failed very soon, perhaps was not the correct one. Happy New Year! Latches.pdf
  2. Ok, thanks midlife, found the colored wires behind the glove box, but the circuit breaker does not exist, was replaced by a kind of fuse box probably by previous owner, and in bad shape, for sure is the reason for my problem. I was always looking around the fuse box, my mistake. Great!
  3. Thanks Midlife, my problem is that I have no power in the stop switch or the hazard flasher, so need to check the circuit breaker but do not know where is it and how it looks like. Appreciate any other help.
  4. Gents, I need to locate and check if is or is not working, the circuit braker in between lines 37Y and 10, lines feeding emergency flasher and also stop lamp switch, that can be seen at wiring diagram coordinate C-35. How it looks like? I know glass fuses but no these. I can see both cables LG-R H are entering a bound of wires but cannot see where they are coming from. Thanks in advance.
  5. Can somebody recommend how to reach this flasher to replace it. I can see it is hidden in the upper part of console, between center and glove box. Let me add that already took out the turn signal flasher, but this one is near the center. Is better to take out the radio or the top cover?
  6. Hi There must be a way to keep fuel in the line close to the pump, and a filter full of gas. Seems that in this case fuel is returning to the tank after many days in the garage, and line gets dry, and then fuel pump can not pump fuel to carb. Perhaps a check valve is required? or there is a lost of seal, then air enters the line and allows fuel flowing back? may be somebody has experience to avoid this? :huh: James My baby
  7. Thanks all for valued comments, specially thanks to David from Carolina_Mountains, will check if oil pump could habe been clogged. The broken plastic line comes with standard mechanical gauges, and my mechanic says have seen these working well since many many years. He says may be oil temperature went extremely hot for some unknown reason or pressure went wrong, or a combination causing the burst, so will check David's theory. or simply the plastic lines today are not as strong as in the past. For sure next added pressure or temp gauge will be electric!! Will tell more later....
  8. Devil put its tail in my cylinders... Devil put its tail in my cylinders... After one hour cruising in my 73 hardtop, with 302 engine upgraded 300 miles back with a top end engine kit for 300 HP, hearing loud music and talking to angels, suddenly music changed to an engine noise, and two seconds later engine stopped. This was my second rally after the upgrade. Finding was that all oil had gone through the teared tubing to the oil pressure gauge, tubing that was ripped, just out of the connecting fitting tip, and also ripped some 5 inches after, see photos . Radiator was expell
  9. Thanks Mike and MJLan, note that the problema started after replacing differential and gear/pinion. Before this it was running good, so seems to me there is no reeason to look inside the T5. The vibration appears when I dis-engage the clutch or reléase the gas pedal, and goes away when accelerating. This means according other people opinions that pinion needs to be moved up, to get in line with the yoke angle within 1º, that is what I did, Now planning new angle measurements and making some serious vibration analysis and play some detective work. Regards
  10. Dear friends As part of restoration to a 73 coupe, put Yukon new ring gear (8.5") and pinion (1.375"), raising ratio from 3.1 to 4.1, and also installed a Eaton Detroit Truetrac new differential. Car has a T5 transmission, rubbers are 17", and has a Dana 44 differential axle. Also changed bearings and seals to axles and differential. Before above changes I drove the car up to 140 km/h and as far I remember vibrations were normal, were not a problem. After above changes, car started vibrating at 80 km/h, specialy when decelerating or pressing down the clutch. Measured the angle
  11. This may help... After doing few small things in my coupe 73, when trying to start, car was dead. No door lights, nothing. Tested battery and was ok. Part of the small things was changing a fuse. Finally a friend told me to tighten the bolt fastening the fuse cage, what I did, and like magic, lights came to life again. Not sure of the reason, but did work! Problema I still have is that horn fuse is burning very often. Enjoy her!!
  12. Thanks both of you, will follow your recommendations, and update later...
  13. Hi friends I have my 73 one month now in normal operation, and want to ask the fórum if is normal to have a hard steering (or no power steering) during first 1-2 minutes after startup. Note the weather is not cold in my place. Car has normal power steering box and pump. After 2 minutes, steering is a one finger operation. Level of fluid is fine. Have not done a flush, yet. There is a very small leak from box. Thanks for coming comments.
  14. Thanks all, what I did is checked alignement, fix some bad numbers and result is acceptable, so will stay as is until next check in 500 miles more. Keep windows open and enjoy life...
  15. The wording is distracting, imaging the thing without the words.....! Oh, good God....
  16. Thanks all for this first batch of comments. Alignment is good so far. Will check if suspensión suffers from this condition. Have all a pleasent ride, you deserve it!.
  17. Hello boys Need advice, look photos of this engine crossmember, coupe 302, 73. Has been there for a while as it is with no problems. Future use may be short drives during week ends. Should I change it ? If you think so, from where can I get such spare? Is needed to take engine out for the replacement? It goes welded or bolted? Thanks everybody.
  18. Hi friends, who can tell me what kind of differential is the one shown at photos. Is installed in a coupe 73, 302. Now planning to open it to see what is inside, what shall I look to determine if is conventional, limited slip, traction lock or other? Thanks as always. Note: She is in the beauty parlor...
  19. Excellent answers, thanks. If any is interested, found these at ebay (motorcity_mustang) ----------------- keep smiling....
  20. Hello everybody, who can explain differences between sets of shields from attached photos. And second question, are these useful? As I leave in a country side and having rains during 6 month per year think are practical. Also thinking in a set of mudflaps, also attached. Please comment. I am restoring a 302 coupe 73.
  21. Interesting thought. I was under my car the other day working on my Z bar linkage and even with manual steering, the box to header proximity is close. I actually considered some heat shielding, but my headers are Nitroplated (Ceramic coated) and hopefully that will keep the heat transfer down some. Thanks, will consider checking my new motor mounts (good eye!!!), making a hope nice dimple, and heat shielding! Did not consider Blockhugger because primary is only 1.1/2, JBA has 1.5/8, and I am installing Edelbrock performer RPM, for 360 HP (they asked for 1.3/4 primaries but did no
  22. Hello friends, need your help, trying to install JBA 1650S short exhaust headers in my Coupe, 1973, 302, standard, that according to JBA fits with no problems, but power steering is in the way at driver side. So, options are power steering is bigger than thought, or JBA is wrong. If I make a bump to make room, seems needs to be 1/2 to 3/4 " deep what seems too much in original primary diam which is 1.5/8. Photos attached of power unit, and of primary to be bumped.. Thanks!!
  23. Hello For my Mustang year 73 with 302 engine from 1968, installing new standard cylinder sleeves, new set KB116 ktm pistons (for CR around 10.2:1), and also new rods set. Pistons weight is 600 grams, pins are 143 grams, and rods are 585 grams. Also putting new bearings, new cam, complete new head, all for 360HP and 6500 rpm. Do I need to rebalance the crank shaft ? THanks!!!!!!!!
