  1. Here are a couple of diagrams: Thank you so much for these diagrams. I always wondered what the lever and the bottom of the column was for. The easiest, cheapest, and quickest way to get the shop manual set is to get it electronically (pdf) and download it.
  2. I also have LOTS of used parts Do you have the trim pieces that go in front of the sail panel for a 73?
  3. I have 2 seats with tracks but will need new covers. also original seat belts.
  4. HELP, Please. So I had my wiring harness rebuilt,(thank you midlife) everything works except my fuel gauge and it worked before so thinking it's not the sending unit,. I tried 4 diffrent things the 9v plugs into but the gauge goes to full then back to empty. 11 ohms on the gauge, 15 on the tank which seemes right, it's almost full. Yellow white wire out of main harness and same going to the gauge. What am I missing?
  5. What? lol Please help You wrote... As for the possible 'column shifter' issue, as you put it: there is a collar on the column that has a connector to transmission linkage at the firewall end of the column. That works with the shifter to prevent either the steering wheel or the key cylinder from turning [to start or stop the engine, I imagine] while in anything except Park. Why is this on the column? I assumed it was a column shift column? Ive been searching for 73 columns but they all have this linkage. I'm a little confused. So you just turned this until it was in the unlocked position? Maybe the assembly line used it for many applications? I'll be doing research.
  6. I had the same issues with my March. Thought it would be a 1 evening ordeal. 2 weeks but worth it.
  7. Decided my bad boy has suffered long enough doing without. I'm a single Dad raising 2 boyz so my 73 Mach gets the back burner as far as attention and money but I decided to spend $5000 on it. It will be fun shopping. Clutch and brake booster and more soundproofing definitely on the list.. Carpet and door panels, Corbeau seats, cutouts,...Dang, I just spent my $5000. lol that was fun.
  8. so....Update. It's not a good idea to make a spacer to hold the turn signal switch "out". Just sayin.
  9. The pin has a tiny spring underneath it, Be careful. There should be a slot in the hub that your steering wheel bolts onto. The pin lines up with the slot for canceling your turn signal. I did drop the column down a bit for a better view. Just 4 nuts. Also make sure you emergency flasher button is not pulled out. That seriously messes with everything while troubleshooting.
  10. NO, This actually helps A LOT. It's not tilt steering but also not a Mustang column. If it's not in the park position the key won't turn. The whole thing is sketching me out as it's my steering. I'll replace it as soon as I find one, hopefully this weekend. Thank you so so much for the input. I love this site.
  11. AH HAAA,AH HAAA Now we're getting somewhere yes. I looked on the column and it's stamped 72. I have no idea what it's out of. It's definately a column shift column. SOOOO,,,, I made a teflon bushing that goes behind the turn signal switch to hold it "out". Probably not a good idea but its working.lol. And yes if you turn it out of park the key will not shut off. I bypassed the neutral safety switch long ago as it can come in handy to start your car in gear in case you lose the clutch function somehow. Thank you for the input. I'm searching for a 73 column as I hate doing this 1/2 assed.
  12. So I bought a new turn signal switch but when I put it in and screwed it down with the 3 screws it makes the emergency flasher button bottom out so hard the flasher button won't move. It bottoms out in the groove. This column use to be a automatic with column shift it looks like. Plus it don't work right screwed down. I left it floating,(no screws) and it worked but was sketchy.
  13. Ok not funny anymore. I do not know where my front seatbelt bolts up. Silly I know but there's not a lot of info on this. 73 fastback. I got the retractable side but the short belt that bolts to the inside. I tore out a buttload of soundproofing, no luck. I also replaced the floorpans so wondering if I screwed up, IDK,I honestly thought this would be easy to find and am kinda embarrassed but what's Mustang family for? Please help!!!
  14. Sand them. They are white all the way to the tire. like a 400 grit.
  15. This is truly a understatement. He spent a long time on the phone with me and was VERY patient...even though I interrupted his lunch..Lol
  16. Oh me too big time. Thank you very much.
  17. So I gutted my interior, put down sound deadener, THOUGHT I marked all seat belt holes but I cant find where the front short ones bolt in? I got the retractable side(door) but the ones toward the middle are gone. I crawled under the car like 4 times and just do not see them. Any help is appreciated..
  18. My 73 fastback has had electrical problems for over a year now. I could not find the problem so I found this awesome guy on here, ripped every wire out of my car and sent them to him. The re-install wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and his tech support on the phone was WAY beyond awesome. Thank you Mid Life. My Mach's alive and running great. Everything works. Even my horn.Lol. I havent heard that in 20 years..
  19. That video was beyond awesome.
  20. Hey down under, thanx :thankyouyellow: and I love your ride. Looks just like mine use too and will again..... One day.
  21. Thank you for the welcome and the 73 is the love of my life. 43 years together and just a few arguments lollerz
