  1. Awesome! Thank you both for the replies. Exactly what it looked like and thanks for the verification. Tomorrow, Saturday, job to do...
  2. My heater blower motor is really noisy. I suppose I need to replace it. The car had water inside for years from a leaky cowl, moist environment. Affected the motor? When I restored the interior and rebuilt all the plenum boxes I probably just hit the squirrel fan with 12V and said, yup, it works. So, has anyone changed one out lately? Looks like it will come right out of the side of the plenum. The gas pedal assembly looks like it needs to come out. There needs to be room for the squirrel cage to come out the side, and with out the gas pedal, it seems clear until the steering column. I have plenty of pictures, but it was a couple years ago that the interior was reassembled. Could it be this simple or am I missing something? Thought I'd ask if anyone has replaced the motor leaving all the rest of the bits in the car? Thanks

  4. Guys, I'm a little embarrassed. I just took the car on another drive and the problem is at ALL speeds. Even around town. I've only had the car on the road for a couple weeks and I was wrong. It does seem though to go lower the faster I go still, weird. In my 5 year resto of the car I did not replace the sending unit. The previous owner had put in a new tank and I'm sure he reused the original sending unit because the car was a flip. I wonder if it could be as simple as replacing the sending unit? It could be giving erroneous resistance readings as the car moves and the gas sloshes around?
  5. It happens at steady speed. I only went down the freeway about 3 miles. It read low the whole time. I just finished a complete restoration of the car so I know every inch of the wiring. The gauge reads fine around town. Was hoping that this was an issue that someone else has had. All of my previous mustangs were 66-67's. My first 71-73.
  6. I've never seen this with my other Mustangs... 72 Mach with Sports Interior. All of the gauges work perfectly except... Fuel gauge reads 3/4 full. First time on highway with the car today. At 55 fuel gauge drops to 1/2 full. 65 mph, 1/4 full. By the time I was up to 70 mph, the gauge read 1/8 full. Got off highway to turn around toward home. Gauge starts climbing. Back up to highway speed and the gauge drops to under 1/4 full. Off highway back up to my house, and the gauge is back up to 3/4 full. Seems the faster the car goes, the lower the fuel gauge reads. Fuel Sending units change a fuel gauge reading on hills, but not at highway speeds... Any thoughts?
  7. Anybody got any thoughts on whether I should hold onto my old used Magnum 500's that came on my car from the factory? I recently installed Legendary wheels and don't need the old Magnum's anymore. They take up a lot of space to store. They seem to be only worth about $50 bucks apiece on Ebay... What to do? Should I stuff them under house where I won't see them for years? Seems silly?
  8. I told the group I'd post pictures when I got them onto the car. I'm very pleased with the finished look. Front, 15X7, 245-60 Rear, 15X8, 255-60
  9. The 15X7 are on sale at $137.66 ea. The 15X8 are on sale at$150.62 ea. They are $170 and $180 on the Legendary Wheels website. FYI
  10. Ya, perfect timing! Yes, got the 03 lug nut kit. Legendarys own website is a bit confusing, stating that their 02 kit is for alloy wheels. The Summit site said that the 03 lug nut kit was correct for the LW50 wheel, so I went with the 03 kit. Thanks for confirming. Ya typo on the 16" tire. I said 15X8 wheel :) ... can't wait to see them... I just put a new suspension in the car, so ....alignment , ect... I'll post pictures when I get them on the car...gonna be a few weeks
  11. Thanks much for the Legendary brand recommendation. Turns out they were on sale at Summit last night and I stumbled upon a black friday cyber monday weekend sale price too! I went with the Legendary Wheels LW 50. 15X7 front, 15X8 rear. 245-60/15 front, 255-60/16 BF radial TA's. Love the classic white letter out look. Thanks everyone!
  12. Thanks guys, it has been a labor of love for sure. I really felt this car deserved better than to have had to sit outside and slowly die. Hard to believe it'll be 50 in a few years! I stumbled upon this website when I first started the project and was amazed at the dedication of this group of people to these cars. I had been an early Mustang guy all of my life. (got my 67 fstbk 39 years ago.) Again, I appreciate this website very much as I went through this car. I would love to get it painted now....(that was covered in another post. not easy here in bay area, Ca)
