  1. '73 Tang, 351C with FMX Transmission. I have been phoning Transmissions shops all round and none of them want to try to rebuild an FMX. They all say there are no source of new parts but several places I looked at have Scott Drake rebuild kits they say is for the FMX. Am I getting the run-round or is the FMX really that rare that nobody can rebuild it? With this "you can't get there from here" attitude, the Yanks would never have gotten to the Moon in '69. LOL
  2. TNX, The foam is plenty dear. Cost more than the upholstery. Whew !!! Did you have an upholstery shop do it or did you do it yourself?
  3. I have been trying to order the TMI Foam but there are several flavors to choose from. There is "Sport", "Premium" but no description of what the differences are. I need a standard, factory foam. Original reproduction. Not anything special. Any advice?
  4. Yes, I am a bit wary of the really cheap ones. I want it done right which is why I am going to have a professional do it. TNX, Mate
  5. I bought new upholstery for my '73 Tang front seats. I plan to go original/Standard all the way. Need to R&R the foam, obviously. There seems to be a bigger choice than just standard "foam". I am seeing "TMI foam", and "Deluxe Foam". Usually the cost is ca. $135 per seat but I am seeing some from "Classic Industries" for $65. I am a bit concerned the cheap ones are too cheap. Any recommendations? Since i want it fitted correctly, I plan to take the seats, foam and upholstery to a professional shop. TNX Roy

  7. Yes, G. It starts out in first and then will not shift but I can manually go to second. It will not, however go to third manually. I really suspect what Tech Advisor (above) says it probably the problem. This Tranny is old and is going to need a rebuild. I would like to get a bit more use out of it before that but it looks doubtful. The engine is pristine. Re-manufactured by some really good professionals. When the tranny is done, then the whole power train should like new. TNX a bunch. Roy
  8. Excellent !!! Thanks Don. The Vac lines are so mucked-up that the heater blows hot air no matter what the setting. Where exactly is the Vacuum Modulator located? I looked up the image but didn't recognize it.
  9. '73 Mustang 351 Cleveland 2V FMX transmission Hi All; My old '73 Tang has an FMX tranny and when I first start it up it shifts to all three gears. After warmup it shifts to one and two (and going to #2 takes higher RPM than it should) Could it be a vacuum line problem? The Vac-lines need sorting-out and the Vac Schematic is useless. It only has a few of the lines represented. I rang-up one transmission place and they said the FMX tranny is very hard to find parts for rebuild. Is this true? Any ideas as to what could be causing the tranny not to shift other than it needs rebuilding? $$$$$$$$ TNX Roy
  10. CJ sent me #44370. They assured me it was the right pipe. It hangs way too low and it is too long. NPD has a #44369 but it looks identical to the 44370. I'll keep trying. TNX again Roy
  11. This has long-ceased to be funny. Mustangs Unlimited sent me an intermediate exhaust pipe for a '71 with a DUAL exhaust---too long. Will not fit. Today I got one from CJ Pony parts. Once again they insisted on sending one for a DUAL exhaust. It came from Pennsylvania. I suppose they are still confused whilst trying to count votes.
  12. I think you are right. I think maybe MU sent me the pipe for a dual exhaust.; From the pix, it looks like maybe they are just a bit longer than the single intermediate pipe. TNX, Mate Roy
  13. I got the p/n wrong. It is a 44369. I inquired to NPD and theirs is about same length 37 & 3/4". TOO LONG !!!!! All the parts suppliers insist this is the right intermediate exhaust pipe. NEGATIVE !!! I feel very frustrated but I am not going to let this get the better of me.
  14. The present intermediate pipe is about 35 inches long (89 cm). That is too long and it hangs really low. Something is wrong and I highly suspect I have the wrong pipe. Does anyone know how long this thing should be?
  15. 1973 Mustang 351 Cleveland 2V Single exhaust Hi folksl I am restoring my '73 and bought an exhaust Pipe (p/n 4469) but it hangs way too low and when I tried to install the silencer I found out that it is also too long. Does anyone know what the actual length of the Intermediate Pipe for the 351 2V is supposed to be? This is definitely NOT the right one. I am thinking that perhaps this one goes to a dual exhaust.
