  1. Lately I've been having issues with the car wanting to stall when giving gas from a dead stop (pulling out of a parking space, etc). It'll start to stall for about a second, then accelerate like I've given it too much gas. It reminds me of turbo-lag when you have a really laggy setup. It doesn't happen all the time (maybe 10%), and seems to happen more often when the motor is cold, but it does happen cold or hot. I don't have a ton of mechanical experience so i try to research everything I can and teach myself as much as possible so here is a breakdown of what I've tried to accomplish so
  2. I recently had to replace the battery in my '72 Mach 1. After looking around I decided to invest a little extra in an Optima Red Top, mostly for the long life and resistance to going flat if the car isn't driven that often. I live in an apartment complex so, while I have covered parking, there's no way for me to hook up a trickle charger when I know I'm going to be leaving the car for a while and I got tired of finding the battery dead even if I took the time to disconnect it before covering it. Ran me about $175 at Advanced Auto but worth every penny. Strong cranking power, no issues with mai
  3. Has anyone checked out the Scott Drake kit offered on CJPony? https://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-front-power-disc-brake-conversion-kit-with-drilled-slotted-rotors-automatic-transmission-v8-1971-1973/p/DBCA134ADS/ I've been researching brake options and like the option of a total kit with pretty much everything included. But on the other hand I've read lots of reviews on Drake products and it can be hit or miss when it comes to quality. Anyone have any experience with this or a similar kit? Also, what are y'all doing for the rear? I don't see the point in upgrading to
  4. Wow, thanks for all the info. I did find the dimmer switch under the e-brake. I'd seen it before but assumed it was a buffer or something to keep the e-brake from tearing up the carpet since it was locked solid and the position seemed off but once I got down there I figured it out. I'm going to replace the e-brake assembly, it's torn up and disconnected, guess the PO decided he didn't need it. The car has AC, just missing the compressor, so I'm guessing aftermarket air was added at some point but it's in pieces and non-functioning. It'll all probably come out and I'll replace it with a ne
  5. Ahhh...That makes sense, the PO told me it was a factory air car but he wasn't exactly accurate on a few things here and there so I wouldn't be surprised. I guess maybe the passenger side is just stuck. I'm planning on replacing the entire AC system with a classicair system this year so that'll be something to look into then. That'll lead me to my next mission, finding the damned high beam switch. Unless it was covered by the carpet during a restoration process I can't find the damned floor button.
  6. Under the dash are two pull type levers that for the life of me I can't figure out what they operate. I know it's a stupid question, but does anyone know what these operate? On the driver's side I have the emergency brake release (which the PO disconnected apparently, but that'll be a project for another day), manual choke, and then the unknown lever. I'm thinking maybe high-beam since I don't have a floor button, but with the head lights on I don't notice a difference between the illumination when it's pushed in or pulled out. The second is on the passenger side, just on the side of the
  7. Hello everyone! I've been lurking on the site for over a year now and always swore that when I finally bought a car I'd register for the forums and post to thank everyone. I've wanted a classic mustang ever since I was 16 and my dad refused to let me buy my buddy's '67 coupe. I was driving home from work about two years ago and nearly wrecked my truck slamming my breaks and pulling over when I saw a Grabber Lime Mach 1 for sale parked on the side of the road near my house only to find that it was already sold (and out of my price range at the time). But I was bitten by the 70's mustang bug in
