  3. I just wanted to say thank you to all the wonderful people from this forum who helped me through the restoration process of my 71 ( you know who you are).I wrapped it up late last summer.

Thank you all again!!

  7. Does your car have a power brake booster? maybe the vacuum line? Hello All, Problem solved. After thinking I needed to replace booster I thought for the heck of it I would put the old hose and valve combo back on the car. Suddenly my brake light went off and the brake pedal movement was restored. I guess the hose I used was incorrect . I did check it and it did not appear to have any kinks or any signs of collapsing but for some reason just did not work. Anyhow thanks to everybody for the help!!

  17. Hi Guys, Anyone have any tricks and or ideas to fix sheet metal screw holes ( like the ones in the engine compartment that hold voltage regulator, windshield washer reservoir , etc..). I guess bigger screws would work but try to keep it stock looking. Thank you in advance for your help!!
  18. Check out this website it might help you decide what is better. Myself I use Rotella in my Diesel truck but not my Mustang. They reformulated the diesel oil for the 2007 and newer Diesels because of the particle filters in the exhaust system. Modern diesels have had catalyst converters for at least 12 yrs. I know this because I've had a few diesel trucks and have changed my own oil for years. I hope I have answered part of your question:run_horse::run_horse: Thank you!!
