  1. Thanks for the replies. It appears that I am missing another part based on the photo I have re-attached and made notes on it. Do you know the part number for this item? I have both arms/attachments now including the one (1) Hemikiller suggested to buy but not the part in between them on the attached photos? Also, to install the arm that Hemikiller recommended to purchase from Missouri Mustang (which I did), do you have any recommended steps to do so? I surmise I will need some type of seal and a list of of steps to install it, correct? Or would you recommend that I have a transmission shop do it? Thanks in advance. -Jeff
  2. Thanks Midlife...I surmise that the full 12V as noted above is a separate wire to replace the resistor wire, correct? Do I just abandon the resistor wire if it is present? -Jeff
  3. Hi Hemikiller...I think you are correct for the shaft at Missouri Mustang however, I also think there is not a location on my transmission for a neutral safety switch around the linkage shaft as others have shown in their photos. It is in my shifter assembly. Please look at the two (2) attached photos and let me know what you think about the linkage connections and if the recommended shaft is what is pictured. I think this is the set up I need. Your thoughts are most welcome...thanks! -Jeff
  4. I was in the same boat...my grew legs however, without it, you are dead in the water. I tracked one down at West Coast Classic Cougars as noted below. A bit pricey but I have a complete power steering system now. They also have the bracket and nut if you need it. Hope this helps. -Jeff
  5. Great insight Hemikiller...my transmission Code is actually "U" which I decoded as the C-6 transmission (please see the attached photos below). Does that change your thought process or do I still need the shaft you mentioned? If so, that is fine however, I will just need to figure out how to install it. Would you surmise that I need any other parts to get the three (3) rods and linkages working together other than the one you listed? As to the servo code, I will look on the transmission when I return from a business trip on Thursday, snap a photo and post it. picture upload Thanks again for your help.
  6. Thanks Midlife! Love the blue shirt by the way! I do have a factory tach on the car and I installed a Pertronix Ignitor II electronic system using the original type FoMoCo Distributor (NOS) and removing the points and condensor with their additional power relay kit as noted below in CJ Pony Part's description and photo below. Does that mean I still need the resistor wire and if so, should I purchase the NPD one and cut the ends off? Product Description Pertronix Ignition Power Relay Kit for all 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984 and 1985 Mustangs. Pertronix's Ignitor II and III ignition systems require a full +12V power connection between the ignition switch and the positive coil terminal. This requires bypassing the ballast resistor or resistance wire. In many cases, the original resistance wire is buried in the vehicle's wiring harness. Adding a Pertronix power relay will eliminate digging through the wiring harness and replacing wires. This 30 AMP relay kit can also be used with the original Ignitor conversion kits as well. Benefits: -Minimizes conducted voltage spikes by isolating the ignition power source from other high current equipment -Provides consistent full battery voltage. No more voltage fluctuations from over loaded ignition switches -Eliminates problems from worn-out and corroded ignition switches, connectors and wires -Universal design that works with most battery ignition systems -Small size to keep your engine bay looking stock If you have an older Mustang, you've probably replaced the points and condenser in the distributor a few times during tune-ups. However, what if there were modern parts for classic Mustangs that eliminate the need for much distributor maintenance? With the products from Pertronix, there is, allowing you have a much more reliable and maintenance free ignition. These products, along with the other high quality upgrade parts from Pertronix can help give your ignition system a complete make-over!
  7. All: I have attached some photos of the transmission before I reinstalled it in the car which I am pretty sure is a C6 (but now I am questioning) in addition to a diagram for some of the linkage I found for the Mustang...I am not sure if this helps but I am just trying to paint a picture...thanks in advance.
  8. Sorry...I replied to Hemikiller and you only in one post to him. Please see my comments about the neutral safety switch. Thanks. -Jeff
  9. Thanks for the reply. My transmission has the neutral safety switch inside of the shifter assembly inside the car and not on the transmission. The one you show is silver/grey in metal color while the one inside the shifter assembly is blue plastic (see attached photo). When the transmission was removed, I do not recall a neutral safety switch on the side above the linkage and the car ran prior to removing it and having it rebuilt. I suppose it is possible that someone put a different C6 transmission or shifter in during some type of rebuild since the car was rough when I purchased it however, I know I drove it off the trailer so it worked. I am a bit bewildered since I cannot make heads or tails of the parts I have on my car. The transmission is a C6 however, according to CJ Pony Parts, the neutral safety switch I have is for an FMX transmission: https://www.cjponyparts.com/neutral-safety-switch-assembly-fmx-1969-1973/p/HW2951/ Product Description Neutral Safety Switch Assembly for 1969-1973 Mustangs with a FMX Automatic Transmission. This is an exact reproduction of the original part, made using the original blue prints and NOS samples. Each switch is individually tested by the manufacture to ensure proper function. Please Note: Ford replaced the 1969-1970 version with the 1971-1973 version which has an extra wire for accessory options. 1969-1970 cars will not need the extra wire, it can be cut off or left alone. The photo below is of the shifter before I rebuilt it like for like with the same parts. The other issue is that if you look at the photo of the existing parts I have, it has a part which I circled which I cannot identify in my various Ford manuals from 1973. Any additional assistance/insight would be greatly appreciated. :huh: Thanks again. -Jeff
  10. Hello all: In reviewing the National Parts Depot website, I found a resistor wire entry/listing and was wondering if my 1973 Ford Mustang Mach I with 351C and C6 needed this part. Below is the part in question. Unfortunately, I cannot locate either connection points for the part in my wiring harness or engine bay and therefore, I wasn't sure if I needed it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! -Jeff M. :thankyouyellow:
  11. Hello all: Great forum. This is my first post so hopefully, it is correct! :cool: I have a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Fastback with a 351C-2V and C6 transmission which I am rebuilding to as close as original as possible. Unfortunately, the prior owner(s) removed many components from the car. I am specifically having an issue determining how to connect the C6 linkage to the transmission (i.e. the lockout rod, shifter rod and kickdown rod). And the Ford manuals do not appear to help me see how they are all connected - neither do photos from Google. Below are some photos - first of the parts I have available (again which are not shown in the 1973 Ford manual it would appear) and the two (2) others are of the existing transmission, rods and apparent connection point. Now the questions: 1. Does anyone have a diagram showing the assembly of the linkage for the 1973 Mustang C6 transmission they could share? 2. Am I missing parts to complete the assembly (it would appear so)? 3. Does anyone have any clear photos of the C6 linkage that I could review/compare to? Thanks in advance for the help! -Jeff M
