  1. Thanks, will check in the morning.
  2. My AC compressor doesn't seem to be getting enough current to trip the clutch. I want to run a relay from the compressor wire and then run 12v from the relay back to the compressor. Where should I get the 12v from? Directly from the battery or is there a better source? I am also putting in an inline 30A fuse. Thanks
  3. Thanks, will check that today, With the meter on the compressor wire I did check the voltages: Fan off = 0v Fan ON with lever not on MAX or fresh = 0v Lever on Max or fresh with fan On = 12V So it seems that the switches work properly.
  4. AC compressor won't engage when AC is turned on. If I connect the compressor wire to +12v at the battery, the clutch engages ath the compressor. I checked the wire going to the compressor and it gets +12V! When I connect the wire the clutch does not engage! Doesn't make sense. Any suggestions out there?
  5. Is the frame supposed to be painted flat or Satin? Any recommendations for rattle can or brush on paints? Thanks!
  6. What orange primer paint is used to paint the rear axle assembly?
  7. Thanks, west coast cougar has one, but I'll try don first.
  8. Found out why my driver's window was slanting back. The upper window glide was broken. Anyone know who sells replacements?
  9. Anyone have a Pertonix Ignitor II go bad on them? I recently had an intermittent starting issue. Replaced gas filter and car started. Two days later same issue. Replaced coil and it started and ran good for two days. Tried today and won't start again. Bought a spark tester and not getting spark. I then replaced the cap and rotor ans still won't start. The only things left are the Pertronix and the distributor. Any way to check the Ingnitor II? Any help appreciated.
  10. I set up a laser line level across the side of the car when putting on the decals.
  11. Looking for OEM standard grill in good condition. Must be early version that used two center mounting brackets.
  12. Engine was rebuilt last year has been and still running great. Scenario: I am on the highway for at least 30 min, doing 70-75. If I stomp on it to bring it to 80-85 I get white smoke out the exhaust. If I let up on the gas back down to 70, the smoke only lasts for about 10 seconds. Under normal acceleration, I can go to 90, with no probs. I had my mechanic check it out but he said everything looked fine, including compression, plugs looked fine too. This just started to happened right after I had my trans fluid changed/ serviced. Anyone have any ideas?
  13. I just got my Year One 17 x8 and 17x9 one piece magnum 500 wheels. 245-45 17 in the front and 275-40 17 on the rears.
  14. I'll be there with my 71 conv. It'll be in the 50 years of Mustangs display.
  15. Bump for anyone using iphone or ipad? I don't use Mac so unfortunately I can't offer much help with problems or testing. It happens to me too when I try to add a second photo from my iPad, it always tries to add it as the same attachments = file number. I think that Apple saves the pics as .PNG files and they might have the same file name photo.png. When you attach the photo, it shows up on the bottom as image.jpg.
  16. Anyone else registered to be at the Ford event below? It's at the Mustang birthplace, the site of the 1964 Worlds Fair at Flushing Meadows NY, on April 17th. I'll take some pics and post them.
  17. I think I still have a template that I made from peeling off a faded woodgrain. If you want, I could scan it and email it to you?
  18. Do you need a special tool to take out the old races or put in the new ones? I have never done this before so I just want to make sure that I can do the job with the tools that I have. Thanks for the support guys!
  19. How can you tell if you have to just re pack your front wheel bearings or replace them? If you replace them, should you also replace Cups and seals? Found a little play on my wheel thinking it was the Ball joint. Not sure if I should just repack the bearings or replace them. Thanks
  20. Greg, nice write up on the alignment. My trunk lid has the same issue and I will try this fix. I like the way you secured the bolts on the spoiler. What did you use for the "sleeves" under the washers and nuts?
  21. I have the lowered front springs and then added the 5 leaf center eye rear springs. Yes, stiffer, better handling and I like the stance.
  22. Looks like I will be joining you under the big tent at Carlisle, but I will be representing the 1971 Convertible! Look forward to meeting you! Good to hear, congratulations! Carlisle is always a good show it should be a lot of fun. look forward to meeting you also. Have you checked the Carlisle website lately? My car is shown next to yours!
  23. Looks the same as mine and I have a '71 with a 351C.
