  1. The cars hasn't been driven in 7 years. Blew the cobs out last weekend. I just cleaned all the connections plus dielectric grease and you were right. Big improvement. Thank for the replies. Mark
  2. This may have been posted before but I thought I would ask and maybe someone could point toward a thread. I have an old powermaster one wire alternator with very low hours on it. Apparently it has to be around 2500 rpm's before it kicks in. I have read that the new ones do charge at idle. So I guess my question would be should I get a new one wire or go with an original type alternator. I think my original was 60 amp and that didn't seem to be enough amps. The only extra thing I have is a small amplifier for my stereo. I did just read about cleaning all connection so when I get a chance I'll be doing that. Thank Mark
  3. 73 has the different motor mounts. I think I have headmans and had trim the corner of the mount to make clearance. drivers side.
  4. Now it says $55900. Just crazy. Did I miss something. I've been reading post about this car on Fast & Loud facebook page. Everybody has and opinion. Now 100k. somethings not right
  5. I don't have time or the energy for much anymore but I have been doing a little stockpiling.

  7. I haven't been on here much lately. It seems I live on FB now. Been laid off quite a bit this year and have been working on everything but my mustangs. Here's a link on FB that has lots of newer mustang parts and some old. https://www.facebook.com/groups/fordparts/528332770536827/?comment_id=612592942110809&ref=notif&notif_t=group_comment_reply Have a merry christmas everybody. Mark
  8. I've never played car town. I've been playing Zynga texas holdem everyday for 4 weeks. I'm getting pretty good. Level 50. Never played holdem before. I'm laid off for 6 weeks.
  9. I bought a set of new AR wheels 10 ago. Got a deal on them and found out why. They were out of round and never did balance out just right. Just used them for winter so I guess that was OK :huh:
  10. It was 80 yesterday here. 48 today and 34 tonight. Bummer
  11. Hate to hear that Roy. My motto is don't lie,cheat or steal. I haven't always been perfect and always telling the truth can get you in trouble:(
  12. Sounds like your inner cowl may be rusted through. There are some good threads on this subject. I'm sure there will be more people chime in on this. I searched cowl repair and came up with this. http://www.7173mustangs.com/search.php?action=results&sid=0b6ffc425610e09be7cb599e83c3d747&sortby=lastpost&order=desc
  13. I used regular old clear and it hasn't oxidized but it yellowed within 2 years. Maybe just heat resistant silver paint :huh:
  14. Welcome Pat. Glad to have you here:)
  15. Where Do Old Bumper Cars Go? The ones in Coney Island and Rockaway Park back in the 20’s thru tthe 50's ran on electric . Had a pole on the back going to a metal electrical charged overhead plate. THESE ARE Remember driving the bumper cars at amusement parks or a fair, don't you? They were so much fun..... Well, now what do you do with old Bumper Cars? (and check out the license plates!) WHO KNEW? Yes, you read that right; these little beasties are street legal. They run on either Kawasaki or Honda motorcycle engines and co-opt vintage bumper car bodies into the most awesome form of mini-car we've seen in too long. There are seven of these little monsters floating around California and they're all the creation of one man, Tom Wright, a builder in the outskirts of San Diego who figured the leftovers of the Long Beach Pike amusement park needed a more dignified end than the trash heap. They were originally powered by two cylinder Harley David son Motorcycle engines but they rattled like heck because of the two cylinder Vibration and Tom replaces them with four cylinder Honda or Kawasaki 750's And a couple have been measured as capable of 160 MPH, which is terrifyingly fast in machines with such a short wheelbase. By the way, they are almost indestructible in accidents! http://i841.photobucket.com/albums/zz340/machman_73/ATT00007.jpg http://i841.photobucket.com/albums/zz340/machman_73/ATT00009.jpg http://i841.photobucket.com/albums/zz340/machman_73/ATT00006.jpg http://i841.photobucket.com/albums/zz340/machman_73/ATT00008.jpg http://i841.photobucket.com/albums/zz340/machman_73/ATT00005.jpg http://i841.photobucket.com/albums/zz340/machman_73/ATT00003.jpg http://i841.photobucket.com/albums/zz340/machman_73/ATT00004.jpg Never seen anything like this.

  17. Seriously Senior! ARE WE THE ONES WHO ARE AGING?? ONE Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen nuggets. 'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter. 'You don't?' I replied. 'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply. 'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?' 'That's right.' So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets (Unbelievable but sadly true...) (must have been the same one I asked for sweetener and she said they didn't have any, only splenda and sugar.) TWO I was checking out at the local Wal-Mart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed. After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the 'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it. Not finding the bar code, she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is?' I said to her 'I've changed my mind; I don't think I'll buy that today.' She said 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left. She had no clue to what had just happened. THREE A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly. When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.'(keep shuddering!!) FOUR I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. 'Do you need some help?' I asked. She replied, 'I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?' 'Hmmm, I don't know. Do you have an alarm, too?' I asked. 'No, just this remote thingy,' she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, 'Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries. It's a long walk....' PLEASE just lay down before you hurt yourself !!! FIVE Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper. What do I do?' 'Just use paper from the photocopier', the secretary told her. With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five 'blank' copies. Brunette, by the way!! SIX A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother says, 'I just gave him some ant killer......' Dispatcher: 'Rush him in to emergency!' Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid!!!! Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you too. Don't laugh....it is all true... Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70! 01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you. 02.. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first. 03. No one expects you to run--anywhere. 04. People call at 9 PM and ask,"did I wake you?" 05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac. 06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way. 07. Things you buy now won't wear out. 08. You can eat supper at 5 PM. 09. You can live without sex but not your glasses. 10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans. 11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge. 12. Youquit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room. 13. You sing along with elevator music. 14. Your eyes won't get much worse. 15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off. 16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service. 17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either. 18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size. 19. You can't remember who sent you this list. 20. And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience. Forward this to every one you can remember right now! Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night
  18. Great job. Sweet car. Congrats Chuck
