  1. 71 Mach 1 tail light harness connectors black and white located near both turn signal lamp wiring? Thanks
  2. Hello all! Can anyone identify this harness?
  3. Hi everyone, On holiday here in the UK, I though I would send a pick of my rental...it's a Renault Captive with an impressive 89bhp, 162lb ft, 1.5 lithe, getting about 80mpg, Diesel is running 1.19 per liter so I am glad I got a diesel. Thanks George
  4. Thanks for the fast replies and I have to say that this site is without a doubt the most informative with all aspects of 71-73 stands. I could have never been where I am on my restoration without this site. I certainly learn something new everyday that I browse the postings from present to past posts. Thanks George
  5. Hi, I have a 71 fastback with a Rug AV1 toploader and for the past year I have been working on anything and everything but the trans. It's just about ready for paint and Today I decided to change the gear oil and at first only about a quart or so came out and I don't know the history of the vehicle so once I put the new oil in and it seemed to take a little over 2 quarts. Started the car and shifted through the gears and seemed good. So took it on its first road test in many years. I drove it a few blocks and coming back to my drive way I noticed a 1/4" line going up the driveway about 200 feet. Also noticed once I got out of the drive way the line was a 1/2" wide, I assume the seals are bad on each end of the splines.? Now for my question - as I never removed a manual transmission. My first step is to remove the driveshaft at the rear. Then support the trans and remove the support bracket and then? Do I have to mess the Bellhousing ? Clutch Fork? Any help would be appreciated... Thanks George
  6. Hi everyone, 71' here I was doing some body work and came across holes in the bottom of the quarters and bottom of the front fenders towards the rear. Looks like 5 or 6 mm holes about 5 inches from the bottom of the panels.? Is this for lower trim moldings? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks George
  7. Thanks guys....I know what I need to do...
  8. Hi guys I need some help identifying which goes Where? For my '71 , Per the pic below... From what I can assume is that "A" bolts near the doors, "B" are for the back seat, "C" mounts on each side of the center console. And "D" is ? I think it's a shoulder strap, and I assume there should be 2? Thanks in advance George
  9. I'm just north of Philly and if your looking for some help with these let me know George ::thumb::
  10. Hi guys, Does anyone know where to get a pair of seat hinge bolts for a 71 highback Seat? Can't seem to find them anywhere.
  11. Thanks guys, I did find a tag covered in undercoating of some sort and it's exactly as you've said. 70/71 top loader 28 spline wide ratio....
  12. Hi guys, Looking to identify my transmission. See pics. Transmissions are my weak point. Any help is appreciated. There is no tag. Just a stamp near the drive shaft end. Looks like 7A0AO? Need to change the gear oil as well. What brand/ type is recommended? Thanks in advance George
  13. Good Afternoon, I have a question regarding the orientation of the front crank seal. The engine is a 351 Cleveland 2V. Does it install from the backside of the timing chain cover? and can this be installed without a press? Thanks in advance George
  14. Can someone advise? I have a '71 351 Cleveland 2V and noticed 2 different gaskets for the water pump. One for the pump itself and one for a backing plate for the pump. When I removed the pump it did not have a plate installed? Does this plate only come with new pumps ? Can this plate be purchased separately? thanks George
  15. Can Anyone Help ? I have a 351 C 2V engine and just removed the harmonic balancer. the code is 6316-A2 & EDoAE The Replacement One I have is Coded D4AE 6316 D2A. Will the replacement work ? They are the exact weight. The only difference on the original is that the outer edge is beveled slightly approx. half way across where the timing marks are. Hope I explained correctly any help would be appreciated thanks
  16. Thanks for the info...I will be doing the tests suggested. The engine runs great...no smoke of any sort that I have noticed...just some moisture drip from the exhaust.
  17. Need some advice in this 351 C 4V M code Engine..The odometer reads 108K, though I am not an expert internal engine parts it looks to have been worked on...see attached pic. Looks like the previous owner was setting up for a drag car.. with the 850 carb, high volume electric fuel pump and a large accel super coil. By the pic does there look to be any wear? how can I estimate mileage on the engine? I'm sure I can do a tear down, though there may be a better way. I don't know any other info from the previous owner.
  18. The arctic freeze is right over my garage.
  19. Guy's, Couldn't agree with you more. My amazing wife and I set out to purchase a Falcon Convertible and saw a 71 Fastback sitting there pretty much stripped out, body panels we done as well as the floor pans. Even though the Falcon looked much better my wife still seen the potential beauty of the Mach 1 as I did. She actually has done a lot of research and part shopping and was instrumental in making this project a reality. Some would have looked at it and seen a Jersey "Rustang" . Well after a year and a half later it should be going for paint in a few months. All in all my wife is the love of my life. (My cay is 2nd) of course. George
  20. Just finished mine and used the same foam on the window ledge placed on top of the glued headliner that is stretched over the lip. Then installed the glass with gasket and nylon rope inserted in the gasket channel. Once the glass is set square start pulling on the rope from the interior starting from the top of the deck lid working a foot at a time. As you are working on the inside have someone putting pressure on the window edges as you pull the rope. Once you get to the top center the window it should drop almost 1/4" From the outside I had slapped the glass until it was completely set. Next I used the window sealer with caulking gun and sealed both crevices generously. (Sandwiched). I don't think this style if exact factory specs...water tested a week later with some pressure and no leaks.
  21. Looks like the left side of deck lid is off as well as the front right is out. Just had a good buff as you can see some sediment compacted in the emblems. The interior needs some tlc. Looks like the seat hinge covers are worn or peeling. Looks like some stone chips on the front end. Didn't look at all of the pics. From what I can see its a bit overpriced...
